I'm still shocked

I am sad and shocked about the recent death of Michael Jackson. I was a HUGE fan. I listened to his music since I was in diapers. I owe that to my grandmother as she idolized him. LOL. We would always watch his videos and listen to music. My heart goes out to his children and family.

Back from Kansas City

Shawn Ray did a 5 questions interview with me under his section In Muscular Development 5 Questions with the Pros . You can check mine here

There are many others including Iris Kyle, Rosemary Jennings, Branch Warren, Chad Nicholls, and many many more.

I recently came back from Kansas City, MO for the Muscle Mayhem Championships. It was a hude success and great turnout. On my way there, I stopped over in St. Louis and saw the Arch for the 1st time. It was "beautiful". I wasn't too crazy about going up to the top. You have to get into these tiny little elevator cars that are 4 ft high and sits 5 people to a car. Its very small. I have a little bit of claustrophobia so it didn't work vrey well with me. When I got to the top I thougth I was going to puke. My erves got the best of me. There are these tiny windows you can view out of and the views are gorgeous. I was up ther for a few minutes then decided I had enough as I was sick lol and went back down and ventured in the museum. Then it was onward to Kansas City.

I got to enjoy spending time with Tracey and Cam Bodner which have the company Total Package. Tracey is 8 weeks out from her shwo and she looks out of this world. Her conditioning is mazing. She is very lean and hard. Way to go Trace. I thought I had a big appetite but Cam can eat more than me. LOL. It was great seeing them again. I also meet Rick Kassten who was the head judge. He has been involved in the sport for over 25 years. He had some very funny stories to share about his many adventures. He really knows how to break the icing on the cake.

Chad and Kim Nicholls really went out of thier way for the show. I was so impressed with everything. It was perfect. They also had Melvin Anthony and Dennis Wolf as thier guest posers and they looked awesome. Both of them are getting reay for the Mr. Olympia and I wish them the best. There is no doubt in my mind that they are goign to be doing some serious damage on the stage in Vegas.

As for myself, Chad will be adjusting my diet later this week. I am excited about it as I am ready to start my precontest diet and get lean. By the way I did indulge on some BBQ in Kansas and it was yummy.
