Saturday Koffee Klatch
     If you are new to this forum family then you may be wondering what kind of goofy question is that on a health care forum. idea   We all suffer with medical conditions and with most of us there is pain involved...sometimes a lot of pain. Or maybe you are the loved one of one of these persons. This forum is all about how we help and support each other, how we gain back more quality to our lives, and how we can learn and share what we gain along the way and hopefully make not only our lives better but the lives of others who come to join us.

      But we need to also remember that there is the other side of life...the side that isn't concentrated on illness and pain. That's why we started the daily Koffee Klatch. This is a time to laugh, reminisce, chit-chat about the silly things in our lives...all fun things and no pain. In fact the 'P' word is not allowed...  turn    So each day we share our thoughts or experiences on a different topic. Often it includes food, sometimes we talk about our past, and other times we just get goofy! Laughter is our goal. So, please join us whether this is your very first day on Healing Well or you're a seasoned veteran.
Daily Question:
What type of music do you listen to?
Share why or what you love about it.

 Most of the bands I like the lead singer has a habit of commiting suicide ! So anyway I like Alice in Chains , Nirvana , Rob Zombie , Marilyn Manson , Black Sabbath , I guess this is called Alternative Music . But also I like disco ( sorry I came of age during this time ) Latin , because you get to really dance with the girl . Just music that either makes you want to get up and dance or sit back and think .  Mikel

I listen to country.  I especially like the ballads, they are so pretty and emotional.  I have been a fan of country for about thirty years now or so.  Before that, I couldn't stand it.  lol.  Some things just change in a person.  Besides, I used to play the guitar and sing.  I was pretty good, but not so good now.

Believe in yourself.  Be kind to fellow humans and animals.  Take time to smell the flowers and the coffee.
And by all means, when you are down, ask me for help.  I will be there.

I love music. I like Black Sabath, Pink, The old Metallica, garth Brooks...a whole lot of everything.  I even like Disney's Salina Gomez..it has to be because of the kids lol. It helps me work, relax, relate to my kids, and reminds me of a time with less stress. Have a good day!!

I am passionate about music...I don't just hear it, I feel it in my heart.

I love everything from acappella to zydeco. Traditional bluegrass, African music, bagpipes...I love anything that isn't "mainstream" or what you typically find on a radio station. We have a fantastic public radio station in Alberta called CKUA - they play a lot of world music, which is fantastic. I often listen online at CKUA.com.

In addition to loving music to listen to, I also sing in a women's barbershop chorus and quartet - I sing bass, the lowest part. One of the things I've loved about this is that I had an opportunity perform on a CD with my chorus and quartet, many Christmas's ago. My quartet sang Marshmallow World on the CD and the chorus did a number of songs. It was so fun, and many of my friends that bought CD's tell me how much they've loved it.

So yes...music is a huge part of my life. I would be lost without it.

Well just this past Thursday night I went to a concert at the Georgetown fair grounds. They actually had The Vogues there, (there is only two original ones left, and they are old. sung three songs and had to take a break and only sung about eight songs total. The Vogues were popular in the 60's and they had many top of the chart hits during the late 60's and earlt 70's Anyway it was kind of fun to go to, all there was is us old folks there that remembered them. There songs was kind of like the stuff the Letterman sang. which is another of my favorite groups. I like the music from the 50's and 60's When rock and folk was the music to listen too!!!
