This is a very tough battle for which I don't intend to hold anything back on what I am facing.

This blog is very personal and comes from the heart of a real fighting cancer patient who wishes nothing more than to live for all of those I love my own will to live, and my love of life. While sometimes I might be on heavy medication (prescribed by my doctor) and occasionally I might write about things or subjects that one may never even think about or consider; so please consider that as well. Yes; whacked out things might even be found here; but I mean everything in all good intentions.

This blog is not at all intended for the faint hearted, those who lack a sense of humor, have no idea what down to earth means, greedy mean people, and/or those who don't know how to share the world with others, and especially those who are unable to easily put themselves into the shoes of others. This blog is mostly about my journey of living my life in the best ways that I can under the Golden Rule and appreciating all of the GOOD KHARMA that comes my way! Never take anything in this world for granted; especially family and friends!

All American Bands for the 4th of July..

Last night we went to see the Reverend Horton Heat, Nashville Pussy, and the Supersuckers who literally rocked the house at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, CA. What a way to celebrate the 4th. We had lots of laughs and lots of rocking.

For starters, we got a great parking spot that already had money in the meter and enough that we didn't have to pay a dime for parking which is an accomplishment in itself. At first we drove maybe 3-4 blocks trying to find a spot, we finally saw one and someone right next to us snagged it, but I said, "just have faith", we drove another 2 car links and there she was the "rock star parking" spot! We got the good spot and not too far to walk!

Then we walked over to the club and we were walking in, I was engaged heavily in conversation and really not paying too much attention. The momentum of the line was good and it was moving forward. The doorman didn't ID my husband or the two sisters that came with us. As my husband walked right by and a couple not much older than we were, maybe even the same age walked through as well. The doorman then stopped me and asked to see my ID. I was a little taken, but my products have been working excellently as I have been getting IDed more and more often, but I still don't find the ID with as much ease as I did in my early 20's. The two girls that came with us, are about a year or two younger than me,; they stopped to see what was holding me up. I was indeed searching frantically for about 5 minutes holding up the line just to search for my ID. They were all cracking up at me as I was smiling and laughing trying to find my ID. You see, I don't have to search for it all that often and I think I must have ruined it for other women my own age and may even younger. What an accomplishment for the night!

I had on this really cool t shirt that my husband had bought at the Santa Cruz Harley shop that totally made it look like I had 2 really awesome tattoo sleeves. What an awesome idea for a shirt! I told everyone that commented on it that if I wanted to, I could change my tattoos like a shirt. I got lots of comments, "nice ink", "who did your work?" We even saw some friends that we hadn't seen in years and we had been to lots of show with over those years. They really thought I really had tattoos and I guess nothing would have surprised them at that point after not seeing us for so many years.

As we walked in to the show which was downstairs a bit, a guy at the door attempted to stamp the insides of our wrists so that we could have access to re-enter the show again. When he got to me, he was a bit puzzled as to where to stamp me since I had ink (tattoos) all over me and the inside of my wrists. I pulled up the sleeve and told him, "gotta like those kind of tattoos", he laughed as he stamped the inside of my clean wrist.

Here I am with the singer of the Supersuckers who I last saw in 1993 at the Milestone in Charlotte, NC. (I might be wrong on the name of the club, but I am pretty sure it was in NC,; Atlanta also had a club called the Milestone, so I am a bit unsure of the name of the NC club, but it may have been named the Milestone as well) I stood in a small line to meet him and to have him sign my ticket. There was a nice couple in line with us as I told them the last time I saw this band. They told me, "where have you been the last couple of years?" They play here all the time and I told them, the truth, "I have been beating the shit out of cancer these last couple of years and sometimes it takes huge hits at me too!". The girl started crying and I told her, "please don't cry, just have a great time tonight and enjoy every moment tonight, you have met a miracle tonight, proof of good kharma, so enjoy it!" She and her boyfriend both hugged me and I went over and got my picture taken.

We walked down to enjoy an excellent show. All of the bands rocked, but I enjoyed the Supersuckers the very best! The Reverand was wonderful as I had expected. He did do something ultra cool. He play a song from each era from the 60's to the present. From the 60's he played "Trailor for Sale or Rent" by Roger Miller, 70's "Paranoid" Black Sabbath, 80's "Ace of Spades" by Megadeth , 90's "Lithium" by Nirvana, and the new Millineum, which I can't quite remember but each had it's unique Reverend Sound which sounded so good anyway. What an amazing show! They didn't play my husband and I's favorite song "Love Whip" but they still played lots of their great original music.

It just goes to show that you have to take the time to enjoy each and every day, enjoy the moment, and to be complaint free! Live in the moment because you never know if you will see what see ever again!

My techniques and treatments work simply for me and may not produce the same results for others. Cancer is a very tricky disease in which it is very different in everyone it touches. No two cancers are the same just as we humans are not the same. What works for me may not work for others.

I love life and expect to live for as long as I can. I intend to use those treatments that do work for me which includes medicinal cannabis. I'm still alive with this disease over 7 years later because of this miracle plant and as long as I have my medicine available; I intend to survive many more years. I hope one day the Federal Government will eventually grow up and be led by true leaders who represent the people and not just coorporations; real people who live by the Golden Rule "treat others how you would want to be treated". I also hope the Government of the US can finally learn to admit that it has made a mortal mistake in making this life saving plant which is provided by GOD and does indeed have the ability to provide all of us with food, fuel, clothing, shelter, and medicine; a mistake that have made is that it is illegal. Yes, it was a mistake out of greed, ignorance, and racism that this miracle plant is illegal. This is a confirmed fact and we should all know and face it.

Cannabis is not at all harmful and in fact quite the opposite. Perhaps our economy can once again grow as it has in the turn of the century by making this life saving plant legal once again.
