  1. This American thinks we need to open our borders, not enclose them.  How can we be America if we do not?

    What concert are you seeing next?

    Dawes was fantastic. I was the only die hard fan at the show. It is so cool when Taylor plays a lick or they hit a high point and he looks at me or us die hards...then he gets that smile. Impatiently awaiting new Dawes tour dates. My next shows are Snow Patrol and Muse in Chicago. I'm not sure which is when but both are highly anticipated!

    What concert are you seeing next?

    My next concert is Dawes, tomorrow in Clearwater, FL. It will be close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.78 C) warmer for this show than it was when I saw them in Chicago last month. Ruth Eckerd Hall/Capitol Theatre-I've never seen where every front row seat is for a wheelchair and companion. 🙃 I have second row. I can stand and it's first row for the first two rows. Everyone wins. Props to them for that. Hi to everyone. Read a bit above. I have concert envy but it's happy for you guys. Rock and Roll.

    What Good Thing Happened To You Today (Continued)

    I got to Florida. It was close to one hundred actual F degrees warmer than a few day ago in Milwaukee. I cannot hear anything outside and see all the stars-the thing I most love about central Florida. It is dead silent. Perhaps I'll hear a panther again or see the bear my sister recently saw.
  5. Temps are rising in Milwaukee.  Hang in there, East Coast.

    The Mood Thread (Reboot)

    My mom stopped crying and is all excited because I'm visiting for three weeks starting Monday. She's out buying all my toiletries so I don't have to use my head to remember. All I have to so is be me. If I say the wrong thing-it shall right itself. I'm thankful. I'm frustrated because two concerts in the dangerous cold have me exhausted but it is what it is. It was also the best medicine possible but yikes. Getting up to get water is exhausting. My mood has improved remarkably. I thought I was making no progress but I am. Thanks to the powers that be. illumination7--Thank you. It's nice to be able to come in here, write and feel better.

    U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

    Once again, I have concert envy. Thanks for answering. I've only seen one U2 tribute band in Milwaukee and it wasn't good so I left after one song. Perhaps the real band will see this, feel sorry for me and do a gig in my apartment? (one can dream) Thanks for answering.

    Explosive Thoughts ....

    You are most welcome. I'll add you on Instagram and sing into it to see. It may take me a bit but you have my word that I will follow! (sorry U2-you deserve better jokes but I can't resist)

    U2 tribute band clearinghouse thread

    I only saw one U2 tribute band and they were awful. I presumed and assumed that it was not possible for there to be a good tribute band for U2. Dmway-if you know of one that's going to be in Milwaukee/Chicago, can you please let me know? I have to keep screen time to a minimum but I'll also try to check for gigs near me. This is a cool thread.

    Congrats, Doc. Reading this is my good thing for the day.

    Explosive Thoughts ....

    You are using your signature throughout this piece, yes? You know I'm a fan. I absolutely love this one, pain. I am sincerely stunned. The tree becomes, for me, so much deeper of a symbol. What you put on that paper is what I feel when my head explodes. Congrats and respect, pain. Way to go! 😀
  12. I missed this. I just read your article, Mr. McLean. It's infuriating and unacceptable when sacrifice is taken hostage. I had forgotten but remembered. I admire your writing. I could follow it without reviewing your words. I felt the emotions without distraction. .Thank you for a transcendent post.. Congrats on it being your first. 💙

    The Mood Thread (Reboot)

    I'm still in a decent mood but bummed out. My mom has been crying on the phone since Sunday. One of the five women killed in the recent mass shooting, in Sebring, Florida, where much of my family lives, went to her church. This lady had something like seven children. Sunday was the first service since this mass shooting happened. My mom's been sobbing and it's awful to hear. I'm flying down a week from today and I'm not sure how I'm going to help her get through it. I'm nervous I'll say the wrong thing. I love my mom very much. I feel guilty because I'm glad she was not at the bank when it happened. I hate it when people cry-especially women, and this is my mom. I then think of the families of those five women. I'm angry nothing has changed.
