I brought my guitar to Iraq, it wasn't easy, but I managed to convince my commander to let me take it. I will never forget those days when we played our favorite country songs with my buddies.

How cool! At least a distraction for those moments. I'm envious that I wasn't in your platoon.

The days with the troops are unforgettable, it is by far like a second family to us.

My buddy brought his harmonica. We had a running joke that we were going to hide it from him. It made things a little more bearable just having something to joke about honestly

I sure hope you were better at playing than this one guy I served with, LOL, he was really awful at music but it was hilarious. I think he was probably doing part of it for laughs. I'm kind of hoping at least, or I'd feel like a real jerk for seeing the humor in it

Anyone else remember that episode of M*A*S*H where Radar had a trumpet, until it was destroyed in a most unfortunate incident... ha, thanks for reminding me!

Anyone that is struggling to lose weight, brain fog, energy dips, mood swings - I highly recommend the book glucose revolution. If you aren't a book person the author, Jessie Inchauspe has been a guest on my podcast like Mark Hyman, Be Well with Kelly, Healthier together.

She gives hacks to steady our blood sugar and it's made such a difference for me and my fiancee!!

Hacks are drinking vinegar and water. Eating a veggie starter. Eating sweets as dessert after a meal, not on an empty stomach.

Just watched the “social dilemma” on Netflix. While some of the findings are troubling, I do find it oddly strange that not a single finger was ever pointed at Netflix themselves. After all, it operates under a similar business model of data, remembering your tendencies, algorithms and tests to get you watching more and hooked on their platform. Wonder if there’s a hidden ploy to get you logged off your social media accounts so you can spend more time on Netflix. 🤔
