And October Brings???

Utah, Here We Come!!
 Radio Show: So some very exciting news landed in my lap!!! Our little community radio station host Fund Drives twice a year. Because I have been subbing for many moons I haven't had a solid rotation or weekly show. Which means I haven't done a FUNd Drive show in along damn time. KAFM hosted a members meeting pre fund drive party, pizza was delivered by the HOT TOMATO, beer was donated by the Palisade Brewery, & the turn out was much better compared to when the other Executive Director ran the place into the ground.
We listen to the well worded vision from the new ED & new PD & we spoke of goals to shoot for & what days what restaurants will be providing meals & that the Bloody Mary Sunday Show is back on. I enjoyed the meeting to say the least. Plus, many of these member I only see once in the Fall & once in the Spring. Catching up is always pretty satisfying.
Because of the past ED & PD running off loyal programmers, there were quite a few holes in the schedule. Our last PD worked by answering everything with " automated show " if someone couldn't cover their own show. In the past, we had to call three other programers AND THEN the PD would handle it. Hints; the empty time slots because of the automated system. So I now have a FUNd DRIVE SHOW!!! & I am way stoked!!!
I am looking at a few options regarding how to handle this. #1) Its going to be a theme show & I believe its going to be a golfing show. We will create an atmosphere of a golfing tournament & callers pledges will dictate the distance of a ball strike. We will call the phone operators CADDIES. Also had the idea of a memorial hole for folks to pledge for past pets, humans, & long ago programers. An LP Fairway where we play records along that hole. #2) I started writing up commercial that we are familiar with but replacing the items name with KAFM. Example: Are you having trouble sleeping?? Then you might need a new KAFM mattress to help count the sheep away. I have snow KAFM tires, skylights, laundry detergent, & computer help commercials by adding more KAFM Ram. The idea is simply to add tons of humor to commercials that drive us crazy & wacky side effects they may cause. Like KAFM hair products that grows hair all the way down your back & into your A$$ crack.
AND PLEASE COMMENT ANY & ALL IDEAS THAT STRIKE YOUR FANCY. Get it?? Strike Your?? #3) Buying some shirts from Kmart & having them printed with KAFM Golf Tournament 2015 or something a little more creative than that. I will let the screen printers have full range on this one. Oh, and the name of the show, Gravel Beach Open. Thats a reference to the classic Pebble Beach Tourney out in California. All the pledges will be based on 9 hole, 18 hole, or 36 hole prices rather than $35 bumper sticker, $65 hat or shirt, $120 level for Radio Room Tix, or $220 Solar Level.
The show will be October 21st at 3:30pm mountain time zone. 

Training: Been busting out some "real" weights at the gym & I am pleased about what else is possible this month. Such as, example here, my warm up on the incline bench press has been 45lbs & then I go onto the rest of my chest/legs routine. Yesterday, the 45lbs wasn't really a WU per se. Another example was squats w/just the bar for 15 reps after every exercise during my back/bi day. And then there are days when I do drop a little weight & add more reps. Example??? Using 15lb dumbbells for curls while balancing on a bosu ball. This clearly works my stabilizing muscles & my diaphragm plays a big role as well.
So this past week was another "mix it up" style of working out….
MON- Chest/Legs/Tri
TUES- Shoulders/Bi
WED- Off/Volunteer Cleaning For Membership Trade
Thurs- Back/Squats/Bi/Legs
FRI- Chest/ Shoulders/Tri
This Saturday moving boxes
Sunday Cycle Cross Race #2
All the photos are from Shadow Boys Sunday adventure on the boarder of Utah/Colorado. The Boy Dog & I are still on the No TV Football Sunday. We drove up to Glade Park but hunters showed their evidence everywhere. So the Boy Dog & I kept on driving until we hit the dirt road near Utah. So Damn Peaceful When You Feel Like Your Alone On The Planet. Or A Space Alien

Clients: Ortho-Bionomy still blows me away. Had a client come in & was really beating herself up about how her ankle are killing her all the time. So I worked with her hips, low back, shoulders, & neck. Never touched her knees or ankles. After the 45min session, she was walking tall again. Then it hit her like a ton of bricks. "You didn't work on my legs??" She confusingly reports. I gave her a quick muscle train definition & explained how I was looking for balance/imbalances. I could only give her theories of what I was hoping to achieve. Like maybe her pelvis was tiled posterior/anterior which was causing her feet to overwork for satiability. Basically, how everything upstream affects downstream flow. Wish I had a video tape of her walking down the hallway in pure joy & relief.
Another client, from my massage days, walks in & asked if I would do that O-Thing on his lower back.  He even says," Next time we can do a massage but not now." I so love that!!! Love that reassurance of what I am doing. That despite me, Ortho totally works!!!

Counseling: Had an interesting day of counseling a few folks. One guy was sharing about his 52nd wedding anniversary & he was explaining how they really do celebrate anymore. He shared "party" from their 50th & how they treat everyday as a blessing. Thats great & all but I felt compelled to drop a few hints. My advices were to take the wife to a restaurant that you haven't been to & whip out a note that highlights of all the little/unnoticed chores that she does. Hope he takes me up on that.
Another buddy is going through some SH*T & just needed an ear to chew on. Its one of those times when you just know that he really isn't looking for advice & is almost at a state of processing. So I didn't really interject much. I did my best to just keep him in the moment & stay with the facts. He would start to say things like this weekend & I would bring him back to the task of today. Reminding him that he can't control a future conversation so stay here with me & I quickly reminded him of…..
Then, another friend, well, she just needed a hug. So I gave her a hug & told her that she is needed. Her daughter needs her, her classes need her, & the her future endeavors will be memorable because of her accomplishments along her journey. Again, She Just Needed A Hug.

And The Boy Dog. He keeps me alive. He eats with enthusiasm. He sleeps when he feels like it. And this weekend is the weekend that he is going to catch Bugs Bunny. He just knows it!!
