I have done that in the past when I had my toe first injured and was out for that year. At least you are still hearing the technique and seeing the rolling sessions to pick up on things.

Sorry, guess I've been lax in my duties to pass on gore. I was too pissed Monday to thin about spreading the joy.

After two days of accidentally kicking stuff, though, it looks like the nail is about ready to fall off. Maybe if you're a good girl, I'll video tape it & post it to YouTube for ya!

Awesome, a fellow sax player! I played alto & barry, but primarily alto. I used to love it, & really miss it sometimes.

Cool! I have a few friends who played trombone. When I played tuba and sousaphone in high school, they had 3 keys. When I was in Drum & Bugle Corps in the Navy, we played Contrabass, which resembled the marching tubas I had used some in high school, except a few of them has only 2 keys, and some of them had one key and a small slide similar to a trombone except that we could operate it with one finger. It took a little getting used to, but was faster than a 3-key instrument.

I liked taping my fights because I could see my mistakes & where I needed to improve. I put 2 of them from a tournament up on youtube a year or so ago. One of them I won relatively easilly, and in the other one I got dominated the entire time, lol. I didn't feel too bad, because the guy who beat me won all of his fights easily that tournament and the next one.

Sad and sick. As I've shared on here before I lost my sister last November. She had 2 sons, ages 12 & 11. Well I got a call this morning from their stepmom (yeah he remarried already) that the oldest has been having some problems in school and told a teacher he'd been dreaming about his mom alot. We he won't talk about it with his dad or stepmom, nor will her go to the grave with them. So I was asked to see if I can get him to talk to me. At the very least enough to know if he needs to see a counselor or what. I wonder if he is using his mom as an excuse for his school problems. I mean I understand missing his mom, but if it's stopping him from doing homework but not playing video games, well that makes no sense.

But I've been missing her a lot lately, and my dad who passed when I was 13. So I know this talk with him is probably going to turn into me crying like a baby.

Oh and my throat hurts so back everytime I swallow I feel like someone is turning a knife between my throat and ear. So it's not like I'm feel well as it is today.

He needs grief counseling for sure. I would highly recommend getting both boys in for it actually but especially the oldest. And soon.

I agree. When I lost my grandmother a few years ago, I did nothing but sit in my room, play video games & surf the internet for hours at a time. Skipped classes, ignored papers, etc., etc., etc. I just wanted to escape from the grief & not have to deal with the world & turned anything that could distract me from what I was feeling.
