Tomorrow is the eve of my ms birthday.
I think the word is penultimate or something. Anyway I have to start today with classical music as my last update may have given the impression that I don't like it. Well I do like all music. Especially Vivaldi. Well its more of a love for Vivaldi. Its the earliest form of rock I have ever listened too....OK I will show you.

Nigel Kennedy, Vivaldi - Winter I

The rest of Vivaldi's winter is quite beautiful. But I hear a cry of "How is that linked to modern day ROCK Dave?". Well.... Apart from Nigel's fight to make classical more punk.(Yeah right Nigel!) Have a listen to this:

Children of Bodom

Played on two axe guitars! There is no rock guitar which says rock more than the axe. It sounds great. I thought that showing two tracks would do it. I could do more.... But you get the idea.

Stay well,
(Vivaldi rocks!!!!!)

The road to acceptance.....
This update is going to be difficult one to write(right hand vibrating and all!). Some may agree, some may not, but I will give it a try. I think it may differ for some but here is my way:

1. The 'what' factor....What is it. Tell me more.
2. Denial..... That's not what is happening to me. "I am fine...Really!"
3. Anger...... You have to be joking. Who is responsible?
4. Bargaining........"What if I did this......"
5. Depression...... We all know the dark sides to this.
6. Acceptance..... Read on.

I have thought about this for some time now. I think, in writing this, I have completed my emotional ricochet to my own way of acceptance. No one can tell you how your going to do it. You just will. The alternative doesn't bare thinking about. My main aim now is to be happy and surround myself with people I love. Ohhh and have lots music playing.

Unkle - Eye For an Eye

I quite like that. After the classical music bit at the beging it's pretty cool. Hope you enjoy. Hippy Dave rules!

Oh and Kim's blog has changed too. Check it out here http://www.restperiod.ca/

Sorry I have been away for a while...
I have told you about that before yeah? Well not much to report really. I have just bought 3 tickets to see the Spice girls......Not for me, for Jen and a couple of friends. She looks so happy! No more to report on the house move front. 1 month on monday. I cant wait to get going.

I have been watching a lot of TV. Scrubs...Thats the reason for this:

The Polyphonic Spree - Light and Day

Anyway... My left hand is tired typing on its own(right hand still not quite right yet) and its time to watch something on TV. There is some new photo's on my other blog so please take a look.

Stay well,

The happy ever after....
If I start an update with the words "Sorry for not updating" it generally means that I am having a life and getting on with things. I have just returned from St Annes with Jen after looking for a place to live. We have good news. We found a great house and we move in a months time! We had such a romantic time walking down St Annes promenade and making plans for our future. Its time to live in the happy ever after.

This tune is for my younger brother who is a secret, little budding "chav" in rock clothing.

Robyn 'With Every Heartbeat'

We forgive you P.lol.

I have a few things to sort out over the next few days and you may find a few days of update missing over the next months. Don't forget when we move the internet will be missing also. I will try and keep you all advised. We are happy so don't worry about us.

Stay well,

What does today bring?
"Everyday is Exactly the Same" by NIN

I have been thinking of how to explain an ms day to Will who is coming later today. So this video seems to cover. Every day is the same. I lay on my back watching TV or DVDs. The only glimmer of excitement in my life is Jen. Like a glimmer of hope in so much misery. The pain is the same every day. Its almost murder to feel this much pain. But even in Natural Born Killers there is an underlining love story. Like Jen and myself and my pain and embarrassment of being disabled. We still have love.

Nah......We will drink and get on with catching up........Should be fun!

Stay well,

I am not disheartened by it just work around it.
Falling From Grace - Lucrecia Crescent

Great tune. Not sure about the game but it looks good.

I am having a lot of trouble with my right hand. Difficult to write a birthday card when you hand is vibrating. I have started using my left hand for mouse control. I am getting quite good. Can't play computer games yet but I can work around any issues on a standard web page. I would class it as left handed rather than ambidextrous(you need two hands for that Dave!!!). I am not disheartened by it just work around it. Isn't that what we have to do every day?

I have an old friend coming round this week and I can't wait to see him. I haven't seen Will for ages. I think its going to be a couple of drinks with an old mate. He isn't that old!lol.

Saw 4 is out October this year. Hmmmm.

Hope you enjoy the tune.
Stay well,

Is blogging no longer cool or something???
I go away for a couple of days and return to the desert of blogging times. There seems to be a drought of updates not just from myself, life gets busy for the wheel'led' man. I return with a new life around me. Some neighbors have moved out. Some still here unfortunately but hey ho on we go.

I still walk around my home with a wobble in my step. Holding on to every wall and every piece of furniture without wheels with Spiderman agility. I still live in the pain bucket that ms brings. I am still in love with the early riser that is Jen. We are still looking for a suitable place to live in coffin dodger city by the sea. I still haven't finished 24 season 6(oh I bought it by the way) and I am deep into the exciting series. And finally....I am still here!

I had an interview with a retirement specialist from my old job. It appears that my money is going to be credited to my bank account with the money they are going to pay me for making me redundant too. I will have enough money for our move and Christmas as well. Talk about falling on your feet! I think the Karma owes me this week for the illness I have had the last two weeks.(My turn to be knocked over by a car tho I guess)

I have a week planned to search for a place to live in St Annes from the 15th. I will be traveling there on my own(Jen joins me mid week) to search for a place so wish us luck. I cannot wait to move. We are settling in together and it should be up there or we will never move.

At least I am no longer full of snot.
Stay well,
