Vickie Pieper at Physical TherapyMy Honey VICKIE Has Been In The Hospital For 3 Weeks!

People have been asking me about Vickie's stay in the hospital, so here is an overview.

On  February 26, 2014 Vickie bumped her head on a book shelf while she was cleaning. She had a HUGE bump on her head. Next day, she said it was feeling better and didn't want to go to the doctor. On Friday February 28th, we had a movie showing at the house from 7-10pm then left to go to Mesquite for an event on Saturday night. (TuffNuff Event)

Saturday morning she woke up a bit dizzy. Sunday morning the dizziness increased. On Monday morning March 3rd, I  took my honey Vickie to the Quick Care because of the dizziness. After 5 minutes at Quick Care, they told me to take her to the emergency room at Sunrise Hospital. On the way to the hospital Vickie shared with me that she has been having some chest pains the past few days. The immediately started running all sorts of test.

Two days later her heart stopped and had to have emergency surgery. Few days after that, they transferred her to a Rehab facility. Vickie was at that facility until this past Saturday. She was in the hospital for close to 3 weeks. I slept there next to here almost every night.

In short she suffered a sever concussion from the bump on the head while cleaning. ( I always knew cleaning was dangerous for your health). Developed severe Vertigo and had to have a PACE MAKER implanted. It's been one heck of a month for my honey. She has had such a GREAT ATTITUDE thru out this journey.

Turns out it was a God send that she banged her head because that is why I took her to the hospital in the first places. Because of the bumped hear, they discovered some other health challenges that need attention. My honey is not out of the woods yet, so I ask you in whatever way that you pray, to keep her in your thoughts. Thank you...

I will keep you updated with her progress...

If you would like to leave Vickie a comment, I'll make sure to read it to her.

Keep Being Brilliant,
Robby

Don’t See “The Wolf of Wall Street” Untill you Read This…

Vickie and I go to a lot of movies! We LOVE movies! With that being said, I will probably start writing some reviews about the movies we see. If we like it we will tell you, as well if we don't care for a movie. With that being said, let's start with " The Wolf of Wall Street"

I Was Disappointed with "The Wolf of Wall Street". I Expect More from Scorsese and DeCaprio.

__________
Martin Scorses's recent movie, "The Wolf of Wall Street" is based on the true story of the rise and fall of stockbroker Jordan Belfort
. His rise to a wealthy stockbroker to his fall involving excessive DRUGS, SEX, Crime, Corruption and the Federal Government.

Director: Martin Scorsese
Writers: Terence Winter (screenplay), Based on the Book by Jordan Belfort
MAIN Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Margot Robbie
__________

Martin Scorses's latest movie "The Wolf of Wall Street" movie is not for everyone. It attempts to tell the story of stockbroker Jordan Belfort. As the movie story line shares, Excessive DRUGS,SEX, and LYING. Rinse and Repeat! BORING!

The movie is border line X rated. Explicit T & A is splashed throughout the entire movie. I don't mind some T&A if it truly moves the story forward, but NOT EVERY OTHER SCENE! If you want to see Dicaprio naked, snorting coke off a women's naked butt and doing the nasty, this is your movie. Maybe I'm just getting old and conservative!

If Scorse's wants to make a porn movie, go for it! But don't dress it up as a life story of stockbroker gone excess.

I think movies like "Boiler Room" and "Wall  Street" did a much better job telling and sharing a story of another EXTREME EXCESS Wall Street guy gone bad.

I heard the movie was originally 4 hours and they cut it down to 3 hours. I stayed because I kept thinking the movie was going to get better. The fact is, I couldn't wait for it to end.

If EXCESSIVE VISUAL SEX, DRUGS, F BOMBS and LYING with DiCaprio is your thing, you will LOVE this movie and I know some people will.

I Give This Movie 2 Thumbs Down! 

See Ya At The Movies!

Robby LeBlanc Performs – ” Song For Rodrigo”

The video you are about to watch features an original song I wrote and dedicate to the late great Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo.

Joaquín Rodrigo, (November 22, 1901 – July 6, 1999), was a Spanish composer and a virtuoso pianist. Rodrigo's music is among the most popular music of the twentieth century.

In particular, his Concierto de Aranjuez is considered one the most popular of the guitar concerto repertoire and among the most recognized pieces ever written.

The second movement from this concerto is hauntingly beautiful. It is from this piece of music that I created the music, "Song For Rodrigo". This is my homage to the great composer and to this great piece of work.

The video below is the first time it was played LIVE.

 

More Videos Are On there way!

Robby LeBlanc Plays – “A Time For Everything”

Las Vegas Guitarist Robby LeBlanc Performs "A Time For Everything" LIVE.

I wrote "A Time For Everything" as a solo guitar piece in 1989 and recorded it about 1 year later. It was written before I had a title. Then one WINDY and Brisk night in Branford, Connecticut, the wind blew so hard into my bedroom that things went flying! Yes, one of my windows was fully open.

The WIND woke me out of a deep sleep and as it blew it startled me. I reached for the lamp on my night stand and accidently knocked my bible off the stand. I turned on the light and as I did so, reached down for my bible and my finger landed on a SPECIFIC Passage. Ecclesiastes 3 - "A Time For Everything:" I just found the title to my new song!

Here is the complete verse "A Time For Everything" from the bible.
There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.
A time to be born and a time to die,
A time to plant and a time to uproot,
A time to kill and a time to heal,
A time to tear down and a time to build,
A time to weep and a time to laugh,
A time to mourn and a time to dance,
A time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
A time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
A time to search and a time to give up,
A time to keep and a time to throw away,
A time to tear and a time to mend,
A time to be silent and a time to speak,
A time to love and a time to hate,
A time for war and a time for peace.

There is "A Time for Everything" and it was time to turn this song into a Latin Samba!

I will be recording this in the studio shortly. Please feel free to leave a comment.

Keep Being Brilliant,
