    Don't know the story, but I'm going to venture a guess that Tom is the only person that ever wore his Converse all-star Chuck Taylor tennis shoes with no laces to a meeting with the President in the Oval Office. LOL

    I love looking through a book of all the places associated with Tom in Gainesville that Marion made for me and some others. It makes me happy seeing it again.....thank you for that, Marion. And, Tom.....you know we all thank you.....for everything.

    Great line...
    There was, of course, a difference between us. I survived by listening to Tom Petty songs; he survived by writing them.

    In retrospect, we all wish he would have postponed the tour and focused on his health. I guess he just didn't want to disappoint us.
    I could see that he was in severe pain when he descended the stage at the Champaign, il concert on May 10. About a month later, on another site, someone posted a clip of Steve Ferrone helping Tom up a short set of stairs. Tom looked pretty miserable. 
    Sacrificing or further compromising his health for the tour makes losing him all the more painful.

    I fear my heart is broken. I awoke to the tragic news of the terrible events of yesterday piling onto the suffering already underway for so many in this world. My heart was already heavy and now this. I am praying for all of Tom's family, all of the Heartbreakers and their families, all of the dear friends who make up that family, and all of us who shared the love of Tom and the Heartbreakers music. My heart aches for all of you. R.I.P. Tom. 😢

    Finally Nel, I think your waiting has been the hardest part! I already warned my son that I would be sleeping in his apartment that night LOL. I'm really hoping we will be among the three Legacy members at the pre-sale for this.

    ^ I had a vision.. of Len, thinking, that at 82.. after what for most part was a good life, with most of the good energy in all the right places.. what good could possibly come from the next 4 years.. and while waiting for a peaceful 86, in what suddenly turned from bad to a downright bottomless hole of greed, egoism and stupidity, truly seemed a grim and unfair proposition for an old man, the only way was an "early" exit.. God bless him for all his love and wisdom through the years and may God help all the rest of us, too young to give up breath quite yet and too poor to leave for another planet..
    Perhaps he said it best himself, just recently - "You Want It Darker" - Well - that's what we got. We just got a sort of democratically elected Lex Luthor to solve our problems, at the same time as all the real life Supermen are leaving one by one. Don't get me wrong, I'm not disappointed. I'm scared to death.

    Quit or severely lesson your sugar intake. Watch out for that withdrawal effect though!

    I've pretty much given it up and feel great! I especially noticed when I wake up in the morning, my energy is greater, my thoughts faster and I'm alert.
    Sure, every so often I have a treat of some kind, and there are some store bought products that contain sugar, though I do my best to get ones with zero or very little. I also eat quite a bit of fruit.
    I'm wondering if anyone else on here limits their sugar intake and how they feel?
    Of course, stopping all at once is pretty intense and I did have some cravings for about a week or so and with time those faded.
    cheers

    Good for you!  I feel that way since I gave up most processed food and bad carbs.   I eat loads of fresh fruit and veggies and limit meat to chicken and fish.  I too have a treat once in a while but mostly I try to eat healthy and I feel great!  And if you want to feel even better, take up yoga every day!  It will make you feel amazing!  
    Stay strong!  There is nothing more precious than your health!
