  1. Say "hit" for me too! :) :lol: :cheers:
  2. They could continue, but it won't be the same. It would be like Rush with another drummer. Nah.....Charlie didn't contribute anything like as much as Neil did with Rush True, but Rush wouldn't be the same without Neil and the Stones wouldn't be quite the same without Charlie. My test for that is, if you close you eyes and don't see who is on stage and can't tell a difference, it doesn't make a difference. Singers would make the biggest difference but if you're a musician, you may notice subtle differences in how that instrument is played. Maybe I'm not being clear. It's not his drum playing - it's his presence.

  4. Doesn't say what he died from. Just says he died peacefully in a hospital.

  6. Are you kidding????????????? :o :o :o :o :o :o
  7. I'm going to keep my eye on you, Tony, when I go, so watch out! :cool: ;) :lol: :ph34r:
  8. Thank you, Leanne. I do need them.
  9. I'm sure you and your brother were probably much of the reason why your mother did what she did. She was young too. I can't blame her for at least having tried. :hug2:
  10. I wish I could give you a hug, or even better, be able to do something to help :hug2: I`m sure I`m not the only one that`s affected by what you`re going through. My incisions are infected and now I am on antibiotics. The hospice nurse was here on Saturday, and she's coming back either today or tomorrow. They gave me ativan for nerves and to help me sleep. If I ever became fully aware of the full reality of what is happening to me, it would crush me. It's the most surreal thing to go through. The pet scan showed the tumor already growing back. That's why the oncologist got mad at me when I told him I had no interest in chemo. If I had the chemo, it could probably nip the tumor in the bud. But what am I going to get better for? Just to get sick and die in another few years? If I was younger, I'd probably do it, but I am not. That's the way I look at things. I really do understand how you see things. Even at my age, I`m not sure I wouldn`t do the same thing - nobody should be getting mad at you, that`s for sure. The context of other events in your world over recent years means you`re not facing a glorious easy future even with 100% perfect health. I think what you`re living through, it reminds me of family things that I`d distanced emotionally from which may be why it resonates. But the job I used to do had a lot of services that were to support people with bucket lists, dignity, choice. I think that`s something we`d all like when we face the inevitable and there`s some solace in having a semblance of control. I hope that the support you`re getting will be along those lines. And if one more person asks me "What about your husband?" I'll scream. There is a lot I can answer that question with. There seems to be a lot of support now. Let's hope it continues. Can't get this tune out of my head. Seems appropriate now
  11. Still breaks my heart, and he is still missed.
  12. That gif made me look up how feasible it is to pour every glass in a tower in this manner. Turns out it's a real thing that's pretty popular to do at big formal events. Although I contend if you're going to do it you should use glasses that have the minimum possible distance between their edges, that way nothing falls through the gaps. Impressive! :yes:
  13. I never cared much for Bob Dylan. Thriller was the only Michael Jackson album I owned.
  14. I was a little girl when they were popular - 6 or 7. This song always stood out in my mind.
  15. :hug2: I just got back from picking out my funeral cards. This is really getting bizarre. I often wonder who the person is that's doing all this stuff while holding normal conversations with people without being a basket case.

  17. And a happy anniversary to "the three" who began the whole thing - RushRevisited, 1001001, and Ghost Girl!
  18. SOCN is the political section on TRF. :) It may be a hospice home to some though. :eh: That's a very thoughtful idea, Oliver. They told me that each item in this particular hospice has been donated. Even the quilting and sheets for the bed. A lot of wealthy people quietly buy homes and live here to escape the rat-race I have seen that section The Sense O'Clock News, if that is what you refer to. I dipped my toes in once or twice but never applied, as I don't trust myself to keep civil in such a stadium. Thanks for the heads up! A hospice indeed, I hope you find comfort with fellow members for some time to come. One day at a time. That's the best I can do.
