Thanx For Thinking Snow - We Needed It



ORTHO:

The Ortho world was been effected for sure. As of this morning I have only had two clients call AND back out. Most, I talk out of bailing. Here is what I say on the phone. Your are stressed = bodywork , your lymphatic system is you bodies immune system = bodywork , my building is damn near empty and I will meet you on the street, open the door, push the elevator button, and sanitize my hands in front of ya. The clients sheepishly agree to keep their appointments and thank me afterwards for holding them "accountable" because they feel relieved. Three clients in particular told me that it was the first time that they "relaxed" in weeks. There really is something to a para-sympathictic state of being. Thats Right, Being

CROSS ROADS GYM:

Just as I was happily falling back into a rhythm with swimming, Cross Roads closed their doors. Talk about bummed. Its really a bummer on so many levels. So lets be optimistic, lets have fun with it, and lets do this. Morning calisthenics, road rides of the River Trail, and washing them hands.




GOOD NEWS:

So stoked about the lack of pollution. HERE is a link of photos and videos coming out of Venice. Dolphins have returned to the harbors, locals admitting that they have never seen the bottom of the channels before, and how the airborne nitrogen dioxide has plummeted over China recently.


And a Pro Cyclist that I follow posted a video from a hanging valley back in November during Turkey Week rides and then again from Monday. The air quality was remarkable. You could see another mountain range in the distance. The Clarity


And nobody was at the Hot Springs!! Its a hippie dippy carry out what you carry in. I was the only human there, week day of course, the audible sounds of birds blew my mind. Its as if they knew the humans were locked away in fear and they were singing with celebration. Another Righteous Byproduct From This Pandemic



RADIO SHOW:

I find myself tooting my own horn here more and more. If you met me in person, hope that happens, you will hear me deflect praise. Like with MAD Racing. There are times when I "give" advice for a project and when someone gives me the acknowledgment in front of others, I politely find a way to point outs someone else achievements. Using The Force


Having said that, THIS SHOW WAS STELLAR!! The show opens with The String Cheese covering Walking On The Moon, Yoda and Obi-Wan Kenobi banter, and then Purple Disco Machine covering Devil In Me. I began the show at about 5:20ish AM but this link starts from the 6am hour. My format or playlist if you will consisted of 1970's tracks, silky smooth reggae beats, and a number of female vocalist banging out cover tunes. As transition between songs, played more soundbites from Yoda Movie Quotes. They're Killer


The 16 Watt Awakening (  LINK HERE  March 18th ) has a sweet time slot with plenty of morning faithful listeners. KAFM began with only 16 watts and a few years ago was granted with a grant that pumped us up to a mighty 300 watts. The 16 Watt Awakening is one of the original shows from 1999 and has had two solid volunteers holding down that time slot. One programer is an original and the other has been around for 4, 5, maybe 6 years now. Its A Well Received Time Slot

Snow On The Valley Floor

I purposely never made reference to the virus or the fact that I should have been waking up in Vegas rather then spinning tunes. Projected positivity over the airwaves for 3 full hours. Hope Ya Stream And Please Turn It Up!!!

This Late Snow Storm Hit The Valley Thursday Before Mr Sun Came Up

Then, I received a quick fill-in call from Coach."Can you please cover the Global Groove show Sunday?" HERE is the link for ( March 22nd ) that show. Went very well by the amount of texting and phone calls. It was lively for sure and I enjoyed myself as usual. Probably had something to do with the magnetizing  trinket left by JJJ. Once again, I made NO reference to the virus and stayed clear of the soap box urges. So now you have 6 hours of stimulating music to entertain yourself with. Find That Sweet Spot Between The Speakers

DISC GOLF:

The Dude & I threw a round of 18 as this storm front was approaching. It was windy as all get out but it didn't matter to us. We only keep track of the birdies anyway. Speaking of which, I birdied the 2nd hole for the first time ever. Totally wind aided, my driver flew on and on and on. We laughed and chalked it up to the Disc Gods on our side. May never birdie that hole again. Here is a photo of The Dudes putt on 17. Funny thing about this photo is it was suppose to be a video for Tim in San Diego. Classic

Wednesday Before The Storm 
AND THE UNFORTUNATE NEWS:

I was suppose to be on the road towards Marble Colorado after my radio show this morning. But the first e-mail this morning, Gunnison Country said NO, the AirBNB organization set out some kind of notice to the tune of owners are not allowed to rent their places. Now, I'm just not one to be hunkered down on the couch. Marble was totally ideal and I planned on riding my bike, cooking fresh veggie meals, tromping around in the fresh Pow Pow, and reading my book. Marble has a current population of 57 full time residents and NO COMMERCIAL MERCHANTS. There is no virus, hardly any people, and I am happy to keep my paws to myself. So another day trip up the Grand Mesa it is. WTF

Met Steve - One Happy Dog Here 

I only hope that in 6 weeks or 6 months from now, when humans roll back out from isolation, with that full sense of freedom in our hearts, we are a little better, more empathetic towards Mother Earth, a little more productive, understanding of ourselves, more appreciative, more humble, a little more loving, then we were yesterday.


Stay Hydrated,
Cheers

  1. Steve looks cute. My normal radio listening of local news and current affairs was depressing me, so I switched it off days ago, but I was missing the background noise. I did a little digital searching on the radio and found OldSkool, by a commercial radio station and it plays 70s, 80s and some early 90s music. It's been a great trip down memory lane.

    I so wanted a massage today, but I didn't, although I did get a haircut. It may a long time before the next one of either.

    Anyway, your post cheered me somewhat.

  2. Yes let's hope we learn something positive from this unbelievable experience Padre, surely! Can't believe you're still getting a bit of snow, although we here in Perth are almost over the first month of Autumn and it still feels uncomfortably like summer 😉 Will listen in to radio shows in the morning ✨

  3. It is amazing to see how fast nature is making a bit of a come back. I have to say this is a good thing in all this chaos. Glad we got home from our New Mexico trip when we did otherwise we might have been in trouble. And Steve sure looks like a happy dog. Mind would be doing the same-and might be tomorrow morning as tonight we are due to get a good dumping, and then 50 degrees tomorrow. Oh March. What a month. Keep washing your hands and stay healthy.

  4. Steve's black color contrasting with the white of the landscape made a wonderful photo.

  7. Steve looks extra cute (I'm talking about that beautiful dog and not myself HAHA) and the news about dolphins and Venice made me lighten up as well despite us being on a lock-down for 10 days now. Thank you very much for sharing such beautiful captures of the mountains and I love the bench near the lake, it's very relaxing to look at from here at my desk. And happy birthday to Hippy Jim, love your headgear on the photo!

    Wish you all the best my friend the Padre!

  9. That sky looks particularly threatening. We usually don't have sky that color. I prefer the picture of the mountain reflected in the lake where it's hard to tell where the water and sky begin. We're getting snow now. Supposed to be only 1-3 inches. It's the pasty, wet kind and you're welcome to it. Take care.

  12. Hello, it is appears Mother Earth is doing much better while when everyone is ordered to stay inside and keep their distances. The sky does look clearer in places and the water clean. If only it could stay that way! Birds are happy and your dog looks cute sitting in the snow. Take care and stay well! Have a great week ahead.

    I know exactly how you feel...there I was, thinking I could go somewhere scenic in my RV to convalesce from this wretched virus...and they have closed down all venues and confined us to our homes!!
    Sensible, I know...but SO frustrating!!😬😬
    Oh well, back to old movies...😉

    Take care...and be safe.

  17. I wish people were staying home but that isn't the case here. I'm seeing more people out on the trails than I ever have before. I'm doing telemedicine from home and I had a dad begging me to make an appointment for his kid with what is probably this virus. Talked him off the ledge, pointed out that it is just a really bad cold, and that there's nothing we could do for him. Plus, did he want to get us sick? It's a strange time and the self-centeredness of people never fails to amaze me. I hope you have a lot of TP for that new toilet seat...lol

    Stay safe!
