I love these intimate snap shots of your life
Great pics Steve! Great to see you all together again. Pictures speak a 1000 words!
So sweet – glad they are back with you!
Happy to see they got home safe, its awseome that you are spending all of your time with them before you leave, enjoy every minute. Your twins seem to be taller, Biggle always so serious, kinda like dad? Wow! has Woofie grown since your last pics or what? Now that Dabble title makes sense. I always wondered about that. I knew about Glow Worm (fave on Hologram) You have a lovely family Steve, get home to them safely and enjoy the tour. I look forward to seeing you in Chicago.

Beauty surrounds the Killer.
You gotta be a good boy for them.
good on ya kilbos! don’t blame ya for not posting any words for us fools, the pictures say enough, quality dad-daughter time!
The girls look great. They look full of energy and ready to take on the world. You, my friend-a little tired, somewhat weary. Hope all is okay with you. It was so nice to wake up this morning and see your wonderful family, and I like your new glasses.
I had multiple doctor appointments yesterday, my ‘pain management’ specialists are very concerned that the physical therapist (a sweet young lady) may have turned my spine a bit and I have had a increase in pain with no relief. They believe it could be ANOTHER annular tear down in my lumbar region, along with the other mess thats going on down there. Their thinking is because, I informed them of a ‘ripping’ sensation while she was working on me on 01/14/2011, and she reported the same and she is shaken up by it. So…more medication and now steroids, and another MRI scan to be done ASAP. WTF…pain is a terrorist on the mind, body, and soul. It does not discriminate and leaves victims in its wake. Collateral damage is non-important as the once ‘enemies’ of pain called ‘specialists’ have silently joined forces with pain to have the suffering continue in its horror so they can experiment with their potions and procedures. They have become handsomely wealthy by the monster known as: PAIN. And pain marches on, it seeks more individuals to cause destruction to more and more lives.
I just keep going because of my children, but this war is now overtaking my sanity and I have been slowly drifting away, mentally from my realm. Yes, I have been getting help regarding this matter (for quite awhile)…but really…what can anyone really do. Because you see, pain is the culprit, the demon, the evil…that changes your life to the point of never even remembering what it once was even like and I would NEVER wish this even on my worse enemy.
So sorry to spill like that when today should only have been about:
YOUR BEAUTIFUL GIRLS !!!!!
And Dad, they ALL resemble you quite nicely.
but without the beard and wrinkles
sounds terrible Darrin, hope you get some relief very soon.
I would be REALLY CAREFUL with that situation! The lower lumbar is no region to mess with and IF you need surgery i highly suggest you get it against your doctors wishes because my Dad had the same issue at first AND he went through almost a years worth of therapy and doctors telling him NO don’t get surgery because it’s high risk and you can heal naturally, etc. In and out of the hospital and nursing homes he suffered highly with pain until his untimely death a year later, but then again it started off with a bottom lumbar tear in the backbone, but lead to other things because of his health, etc. He was a heavy smoker for 40+ years and didn’t take care of himself, plus he was 69 but those ARE NOT excuses in any case. Anyway, from my experience MAKE SURE you get SEVERAL opinions and don’t just go with one doctor or a fluke chiropractor, etc. Nip that in the bud and DO YOUR physical therapy which my Dad didn’t do, etc. Man I will pray for you with all my heart and God Bless You! Your in my prayers.
Darrin, check yesterday’s blog – I sent you a comment
Your Friend in Pennsylvania

I am trying to get back to Sydney for the April Opera House concert as it was 1981 when I first saw the band in Sydney. Its my 50th in April and its my 30 year Church odyssey.

“Inner Country” is soothing and the lyrics are so TRUE! I can relate to this one! Damn, where does your soul come up with this stuff!? No words can explain how it was WORTH pre-purchasing “White Majic”!

THE MAGIC WORDS (NO…REALLY)
You’re probably all wondering why I called you here tonight.
You aren’t looking for advice.
Don’t want anyone telling you how to live your lives.
Here are the magic words.
Divinely inspired, I assure you.
They’ll cure your ills, make you rich.
When you are going to sleep, repeat them over and over.
Put them to music if you can…the right brain can build a secret tunnel
Through the corpus collosum to the left brain to snuff out
Its evil musings once and for all.
(Do they fit the Porpoise Song?)
The words will gently pour down over the world
Covering with a warm, gentle rice syrup
All the naysayers, the bear market prophets,
The Chicken Littles.
First the set up.
It took three days of climbing up the steep, snowy, narrow rocky trail.
The air is thin, you stumble on shivering.
Finally, you see through the snow flakes a Tibetan monk sitting cross-legged in his cave
You offer him a gift. He blesses you and gives you a folded paper.
Later you see it is in Sanskrit. Damn!
A week passes. You sit across from a translator in a small Tibetan café.
Steam rises from your cup of kukicha tea, warming you.
He scrawls the words in English. Here they are.
You are adrift on a life raft in the ocean.
In the distant sky you see a spec becoming larger.
A pigeon flies right to you and lands on your finger.
You give him some of your last food.
He has a message tied to his leg, which you gently remove.
You open it up and read the words…
You are in a dusty Montana town in the old West
Tumble weeds aimlessly blow by
Your news office has been waiting, waiting for the words
Finally, the telegraph begins to tap, tap tap, tap tap tap
Your man rushes over and writes down the words.
He runs to your desk and you look at what he wrote…
You get the picture.
And now for the moment you’ve all been waiting for
Repeat, repeat repeat (Repeatan porfavor)
IT’S ALL GOOD
IT’S ALL FINE
EVERYTHING I WANT IS MINE.
GOLD IS IN THE SAFE
CASH IS IN THE TIL
MONEY IN THE BANK
AND CATTLE ON THE HILL
SALT IS IN THE SHAKER
PEPPER IN THE MILL
MONEY IN THE BANK
AND CATTLE ON THE HILL
THERE IS WEALTH AND ABUNDANCE
FOR ALL, FOR ALL
THERE IS WEALTH AND ABUNDANCE FOR ALL.
Now go do it.
Make it so Number One.
Let’s do this thing.
Note to Steven:
Please protect your ears?
At least ear plugs
Maybe noise protecting ear muffies too.
Like the ones they wear at rifle ranges.
I know, it won’t look cool.
Like using potholders doesn’t look cool
When taking a hot pan from the oven.
Maybe you could make a joke.
Somebody in the back room is prompting you cause you keep forgetting the words.
Getting ancient and senile and all that.
I can’t stand to see you suffer.
Now click your heels together 3 times.
Take a Phenergan (promethazine) – are you doing that???!!!
And all you suffering insomniacs
On the advice of the late great Dr. Janet Travell.
The mother of trigger point therapy.
It’s just an antihistamine, motion sickness thing
But will give you the most comforting, cozy sleep
Non habit forming, non narcotic, very safe.
Available over the counter in England, prescription required in USA
Don’t know about Australia.
And you will be in Merica.
OK, I am really going on, I know
Slap my face and call me Darrin
(Sorry Darrin, couldn’t resist, ha ha)
For those of you who like to print stuff out
And rub it on yourself, roll on it, whatever
Have at it.
OK, That’s all folks.
PS – for those of you who have sent comments and regretted them.
This is going to be one of those times, I suspect.
wow an epic!
Interesting blog…but alarm bells are ringing Re: Promethazine…..its not just some innocent anti-histamine. It has the potential to harm…..big time. The drug is available over the counter in Australia. Maybe its time Australia followed the US. Self medicating is potentially dangerous. I am not familiar with Dr Travell so I cannot comment. I do however sincerely care enough to reply.
You are right in that I perhaps recommend this too strongly and without reservation. Particularly, as a myofascial trigger point therapist, I legally cannot prescribe, so let me apologise for that.
The worst I have heard about promethazine is that it has been known to stop breathing, but that was in extremely large doses, given in an IV drip. I have known of doctors giving 400 milligrams an hour to patients for vomiting without ill consequences. The common dose of promethazine to aid sleep is 25 milligrams in 24 hours. I occasionally resort to using about 6 milligrams (1/4 of a pill), if I find that several nights in a row I am waking up at 2 or 3 and staying awake. It seems to reset my rhythms.
Dr. Janet Travell taught pharmacology, but that was not what she was famous for. She originally was a cardiologist who happened to have an intractable pain problem that she discovered was caused by trigger points. She spent the rest of her life researching myofascial pain and dysfunction, also the name of her 2-volume work, partnering with Dr. David Simons (incidentally, the second American to go into outer space). She became famous for her spectacular treatment of a young, crippled American senator who later became president of the US, when she became his White House physician. Later, after President John F. Kennedy was assassinated, she continued on as Lyndon Johnson’s White House physician.
In Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction, The Trigger Point Manual, she recommends promethazine for people who fall asleep but then wake in the early hours and can’t fall back to sleep. Remember, she taught pharmacology. Insomnia is a serious disorder that exacerbates all other conditions, and most of the other “sleeping pills” are much more dangerous than promethazine. For that matter, ibuprofen, aspirin, and the other NSAIDS are quite dangerous, causing high blood pressure, ulcers, and often fatal gastrointestinal bleeding, and tylenol has been known to cause serious liver problems. Doctors routinely recommend people take these over-the-counter drugs without warning.
Promethazine is contraindicated for children under 2, and possibly to sleep apneacs. It does work differently than the other antihistamines in that it effects the central nervous system, however, and it is never a bad idea for a person to ask his doctor before taking anything.
I stand corrected, but would say this for insomniacs, it can be an absolute Godsend. Ask your doctor and if you get the green light, try promethazine occasionally for sound, lovely sleep. Like other antihistamines, it tends to cause dehydration, so hydrate accordingly, checking with your doctor about drinking water, of course.
Sorry to sound flippant, but a therapist I know advised a patient to drink lots of water after a treatment. The person (a nurse, no less) drank so much water that she suffered convulsions and water intoxication.
forget the US, bring p=a to good old germany! I’d go and see ya every night.
Love all that cascading hair! Sugar, sugar, honey, honey!
I was just listenng to Providence yesterday.
From Wiktionary, the second two definitions of “providence” are gems:
2. The careful guardianship exercised by a deity.
3. A manifestation of divine care or direction.
The poignany of the song is the gap between the ideal and the reality.. our humanity, where it lies. Art elevates.
I didn’t write “Your comment is awaiting moderation”. I reckon there’s a pretty cool gremlin in the system. And wise. Wifey always teling me I require moderation!
Hey.. Who’s read “God of Small Things”.??
Now that’s story that left me feeling more, loving, gentle and appreciative of my children, all children.
These are dimensions you don’t get in disposable pop, but with the Church (off the top of my head) you have Fly, Interlude, the Swan song, Radiance, Telepath, After Everything, Providence,.. Yea Grant M, he had it in bucketloads and when I saw the Church in Geelong it struck me there was a discernible McClenan sound or influence.
i read god of small things about 10 years ago gav!
i love those definitions!
even better is seeing them or feeling them in action
your beautiful girls….home safely…there is no place like home.
wishing you a fabulistic tour…doing what you love…fantastic.
take care (Caute…stolen from Spinoza)…no J Buffet re-enactments please!!!!
Lovely photos of your lively girls.Or lively photos of your lovely girls.Both correct I think.
By now probably hauling qantarse across the Pacific.
In a few years they’ll be old enough to come with you! To Europe….
I cannot, cannot, cannot make the upcoming Church tour.
Can someone attending one of the shows supply me with a recording? Soundboard or crowd? Doesn’t matter. I’m sad I’ll be missing it and would like a little something from it.
sorry to hear this john!
anything i can do …put you on guest list?
Golly…never thought I would get a guest list offer from the man himself.
I appreciate the offer, but it’s more of a time/distance thing than a financial thing. In other words, a remote luxury.
Feel free to groan, everybody. I’d be disappointed if you didn’t.
Could you put my 2 brothers and I on the guest list for Chicago? I’ll help John out anyway i can, autographed CD or whatever? The send to him if he gives me the info? My brother’s names are Kevin and Kris, plus me, Kraig. It’s a reunion!!!! That’s all…I’ll attend the show for John, if he can’t make it and do ANYTHING we can to get him a little something from it!?
Let me know?
