“Comfortably Numb” is a song by the English rock band Pink Floyd, released on their eleventh album, The Wall (1979). It was released as a single in 1980 with “Hey You” as the B-side. The chorus progression and guitar solos were written by guitarist David Gilmour, while the lyrics and verse progression were written by bassist Roger Waters.
“Comfortably Numb” is one of Pink Floyd’s most famous songs, renowned for its two guitar solos.
Comfortably Numb has always been one of my all time favorite songs, so I decided to make my own cover of it. I thought the harp guitar would work well with this song. Also for the ending solo I thought it would sound best on electric so I looped the chords and played the solo on my Fender Strat!
Drumpf climbed into a big rig driver’s seat, but the Internet was at the wheel Thursday, March 23.
Seeking support for the House Republican health-care legislation, Drumpf invited members of the American Trucking Association to the White House on Thursday.
“As he greeted them, two large trucks were parked in front of the White House,” The Washington Post’s John Wagner reported.
“After shaking hands of ATA members positioned in front of the trucks, the president hopped into the rig of one of the 18-wheelers and tooted the horn a couple of times, then closed the door and waved to the news media through the window.”
In the photos, he appeared to be having the time of his life.
Puerto Rico Defeats the Netherlands (4-3) to make the final of the WBC
Puerto Rico has defeated the team from the Netherlands on an 11-inning sacrifice fly from Eddie Rosario to reach the final of the 2017 World Baseball Classic.
It is the second tournament in a row in which the island’s team reaches the final, having lost the championship to the team from the Dominican Republic in the 2013 tournament (0-3). It now awaits the winner of the second semi-final between Japan and the United States, which will be played tomorrow.
“SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — From the first hours after the news of the Orlando massacre broke, in which a shooter killed 49 people and injured 53 others in an act of hatred of LGBTQ people, it was clear that most of the men and women who died that day were Latin Americans.
But it wouldn’t be for several more hours, after the majority of the victim’s names were confirmed, that it would become clear that most of the Latinas and Latinos were Puerto Rican — 23 of the 49 killed.”
This was not just an attack on the LGTBQ community, this was an attack on the Latin American/Puerto Rican community as well. THAT is a fact I have not heard enough in the media … not the US nor the worldwide media.
Stay strong and proud my friends from across the pond, you have loads of friends in Europe and around the world.
In the arms of an Angel fly away from here
From this dark, cold hotel room, and the endlessness that you fear
You are pulled from the wreckage of your silent reverie
You’re in the arms of an Angel; may you find some comfort here ….
My dear friend Martin, from http://mavadelo.wordpress.com/ has created a new award. He has seen fit to nominate “It Is What It Is” for this meaningful and prestigious award. He states that “it can’t be declined”.
As I read the meaning behind this award I knew that, in spite of his condition, I could not have even consider declining it. This is an award that has a very special meaning for me. All my professional life was dedicated to caring for those in need. There was a genuine desire to help others since I was young. This desire translated to my choice of careers. In spite of being currently retired from that career, the desire to help others is alive and well within me.
Dear Martin, my fellow blogger and Wolf Packer, I am deeply honored that you would consider me for this award and I very humbly accept. I commit myself to live up to the standards that have been set in the creation of this beautiful, meaningful and wonderful award.
~~THANK YOU FOR THINKING ABOUT ME~~
~~In his own words~~
The Cloak of Dawn award
The idea behind this award: We all know bloggers that write about the issues in this world be it animal abuse, child abuse, equality, their family, love, friendship, the love of whatever deity they worship and so on. We also know many blogger that besides blogging has to take care of a loved one because they are sick, have a disability or are otherwise not able to do everything by themselves. For these bloggers I created this award. The award is named in the spirit of a voluntary care giver and mother that does not blog herself and therefore can not receive the award herself .
Why a cloak? Well, in Dutch we call a voluntary caregiver (as described above) a “mantel zorger” which translates literal to “cloak carer” hence the cloak and the Rod of Aesculapius.
This award has some special rules due to its intend. Whereas most awards are shared after you have gotten it yourself, this award will be free to hand out at each and everyone’s own discretion BUT you must make sure that the intend of the award is upheld.
Display the award on your blog, either on a special awards page or in your side bar
If you have a nominee yourself tell them of their nomination
Make clear in your nomination blog why you have nominated the person. is it for his/her blogging or for his/her voluntary care that they give to their loved one/friend/kid/ grandparents/animals, etc. etc.
There is no limit on how many people you can nominate as long as the spirit of the award remains intact.
This can’t be declined

“This blog is my journey and since then I have somehow managed to write not one, but two novels. Twelve Days – The Beginning was published in April 2013 and I have just finished writing the sequel Twelve Days – The Future, which I am hoping to publish in early 2014. There are plenty more projects in the pipeline, and other books in the Twelve Days series. I think you can safely say that I have the bug! I also write the odd bit of poetry which you will see on here from time to time.
When I’m not writing, I work part time at the local school and I am Mum to two boys, one of whom is severely disabled.”
