My 100th Post

Well, well, well... Today is my 100th post, I can't believe that people are actually reading and caring about what lil ol me has to say.

For my 100th post I would have liked to have some cute, witty blog, but unfortunately that its going to be the case. I dedicate this, my 100th post, to Travis Barker and DJ AM. If you have not heard yet, they were both in a horrible plane crash in the early morning hours of Saturday in Columbia, SC. It appears that the pilot over ran the runway during take off and went through and fence and hit a highway off ramp. Due to the fact they the accident occurred during take off, the plane had a full tank of gas which resulted in the plane becoming engulfed in flames. Six people were on the plane, the pilot and co-pilot, Travis and DJ AM, and Travis' assistant and security. Travis and Adam "DJ AM" were the only survivors.

Travis and Adam are currently recovering from 2nd and 3rd degree burns and are in critical condition. It appears they were ejected from the plane during the crash and were on fire when bystanders came upon them on the highway.

First off, my heart goes out to all the families affected by this horrible accident. Secondly, I pray for the timely and safe recovery for both Travis and Adam. I have been a huge fan of Travis since he was in the AquaBats (prior to Blink 182). I had the opportunity to see him in concert on several occasions when I was younger. And had the chance to see DJ AM at PURE when we were in Vegas earlier this year. Both have such amazing talents and are too young to leave us so soon.

So today, on my 100th post, I hope you all keep Travis and Adam in your thoughts and prayers.

I remember the AQUABATS!!!!! They were the BEST! I do hope they live- I heard they were in "critical but stable" condition!
