Hello everyone. Sorry I dropped off, but life throws curve balls, so I've been dodging. This time it hit a good friend of ours. Cougan Kelly was a beautiful person and a well known pro snowboarder. I'm from a small mountain town covered in snow and have a lot of snowboarder friends. Sometimes they make it big or you just think they are talking about making it big to sell the clothing they are sponsoring off of their own backs, just so they can buy a new set of boots, because theirs has too many layers of duct tape that doesn't block the icy cold air. Well anyway, this month has been so hard, but it brought us all back together again, which is the blessing of it all, but by no means covers the shocking and painful event that took apart of us. Apart of our family. Cougan Kelly was shot and murdered by two teenagers that were related to a gang. Within rage, two 19 year old "kids" opened fire in a crowd of a Halloween party in Reno, NV last weekend. They shot a killed three people, one of them our beloved brother and very close friend. This past weekend we gathered together and celebrated his life and said goodbye, but I'm still in shock. It hits me off and on and to tell you the truth I'm tired everyday. Just very sad. It's hard to go on with such a void of him not being there anymore. I've never had a friend die before, no...I've never had a friend get murdered before. That's what hurts. Not the fact that he just died, but the fact that kids!, Kids can have the act and kill. With no remorse. None. I say the pictures of the murderers in the paper, and nothing was in their eyes. Just tough faces as if they still at that moment had to look tough. Why?! If I killed someone, my face would look sick. Stupid stupid ego trips, in the expense of innocent people. How many people must die in the hands of people that have rights to have guns? We give them that right to have guns. WE give them that right. No one will do anything. Guns should not be allowed to be owned by civilians! That's the right that should be taken away. 19 years old! and they had guns. Please someone do something, before this whole world goes on fire. I am already, by not owning a gun.

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
