today was a bit of a write off. I couldnt play hockey as I have a really sore arm. Leo stayed home from school as he had stomach flew. I drove the van up a curb and puntured the front tire.

So far so bad....i must say though; Ossington Tire is a great place, if you have anything related to car tires to deal with.

I am going to go for a walk and buy a cd to help our thanksgiving weekend be a blast including two long drives. I am thinking about maybe Brian Wilson's smile, maybe new tom waits or maybe something else.

we shall see.

I hope tommorrow is a better day.

I made the mistake of watching the news tonight. so Sad all the children being killed by war. I don't know much about it but I found this photo at

The only way I could immediately respond to that kind of sadness was to exploit the happiness and freedom I am blessed with; I went downstairs and played music. I wrote a joyous, song, celebrating how fortunate we are here, healthy, alive and free.

I know it doesn't help any of those people but I guess it is a good thing to not take our fortunate lives for granted, at least as a starting point.

Say no to war. Peace. tim

tennis elbow

It is bad enough to have the hockey strike. Now I may not be able to PLAY hockey either....aahhhhh...
My tennis elbow is back and it even makes lifting a mug of beer tricky.

I know the right thing to do is take a few weeks off from playing hockey, maybe more. This makes me sad. Julie has wrapped my arm and soaked it in some sort of oil (i didn't pay much attention) Her mom claims it will help. I am not holding my breath.

I seem to be able to play the guitar...good things with all these gigs this month (not!)...hahah.

listening to Braxton on headphones performing his music with Ray Anderson and guitarist James Emery. I am enjoying hearing his music with guitar.

I finally got my ears cleaned at the doctor today but I am a little concerned that the left one seems a little plugges still. Wlll wait till morning to see if anything has changed.

I am also flipping through a book i bought for a dollar called Stravinksy by Rober Craft. It is Crafts journal entries...not sure I like it. I wany my loonie back...hahaha.

I will hit the sack soon. Was going to go out but I am way tired, and need to get some rest tonight.

Okay, I did stretch it out a little last night. (thanks for all that tequila Rob...loved it)

I still think blindfold tests are one of the best ways to listen to music. ie. no context.

might hit my fave blogs before I pack it in.

good night all.
