Who Do I Look Up To, That I Personally Do Not Know?

  • Rickie 

I was asked this question recently and I figured it would be a good thing to post on my website.  I know many have followed me for a very long time and some are just becoming aware of who I am. So I figured it would be a good thing to post, so everyone can know. 

So, the question was asked:  “Who Do I Idolize That I Do Not Personally Know?”  

Obviously it did not take long to answer this question!

I will let you sit for a second, and let you try to guess this answer…

The person who I admire and idolize most, that I do not personally know is:   Elon Musk 

Now I am asking myself, how many of you got that correct?   LOL

Many people do not like Elon Musk.  But I think this man is a genius.  He thinks outside the box and if he messes up, he laughs and goes on and tries again until he finally succeeds.

I have watched videos of him online, on how he candidly talks to his employees. He does not treat his employees as employees, but as friends.  He knows and understands the importance of every person in the company plays a vital role, regards of your job position.  And he has fun doing it.

Many have said he is a straight up jerk.  Heck, many say that about me. So that don’t say much, lol.

If you take time and really study Elon Musk, I think many of you would admire him as well.

He is making waves and pushing forward and breaking barriers and making history for mankind.

I mean what else could you ask for in a true hero.

How can you not like a man who put a freaking Tesla into space!

Advance our space exploration and push mankind forward, that is my idol!

My buddy Chad used to play this song on repeat for hours, years ago.
This song has stuck in my heads for many many years.
It is a really good song.  Take a few minutes and listen!

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful Easter! 

I know one thing, I sure would give anything to have my mom and dad back just one more time to celebrate Easter.

Rickie Traeger: Harry Potter Movies & Thunderstorms…

  • Rickie 

I hope everyone is doing ok.  I have never saw the Harry Potter movies. So I am trying to watch them all. I am now half way through the 2nd movie.  Pretty good movies. Alot of people give me a hard time, because I have yet to watch them, lol.  

The citizens in the Mid-South and South East have been geting nailed with severe weather.  Keep them in your thoughts and prayers. I was just reading about it online.  Sad situation down that way.  They have been getting nailed by severe weather, and here I am just hoping for a simple thunderstorm here…

Rickie Traeger: I just found something I want to add to my bucket list! 

  • Rickie 

So I just found something I want to add to my bucket list! 

I am in the mood to go see a movie at the theaters. It has been awhile since I have went to go see a movie.  So I popped onto the movie theater website to see what new movies are out these days, and I found this!

Yup, you can rent the theater now!   How awesome that would be to rent the theater to myself and watch a movie!  OK, maybe add  a few close people I know, lol.   I wonder if they do movie requests?  I would LOVE to see the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind, on the big screen!  Or Twister!  In all honesty there are several movies I would love to see on the big screen.  It shows that they are doing back to the future, and a few other older movies. So that does show they do older movies on the big screen 🙂

I have added this to my bucket list!    Hell Ya!

“Cry Little Sister”

  • Rickie 

So I like this song called “Cry Little Sister” by Gerard McMann. 

It was on the soundtrack of the Lost Boys. It is a really damn good song! 

Recently Marilyn Manson remade it.   So I went on Youtube to listen to Marilyn Manson version of it. And came across a few others who remade the song as well. 

I will say I am highly impressed!  

Below are the different versions of the song, Cry Little Sister. 
I will list them in the order on how I like the versions.  #1 being the best version. 
I should say the original is the best version, originals are always best! 

These other versions, holy cow are they frigging amazing! 
Kudos to each artist who remade this song and put their own spin on it. I love it!  


It feels weird putting Marilyn Manson in last, because I am big fan of his. And here I am putting him in last. As you know, I don’t lie and keep things real.  So as much as I like Marilyn Manson, I liked his version of it but felt the others were better. I do love the dark theme he put on it though, Rock On Marilyn Manson 🙂 

Do you agree or disagree in the order I like the versions?


Rickie Traeger: Just Saying Thank You For The Support

  • Rickie 

After my mom passed away recently, I have not been in a blogging mood.

I know many of you follow my website, and like my posts.  I do appreciate it!

I thank you for letting me have my space and letting me grieve, during this tragic time.

Much appreciated.   So, now it is time to step back up on the plate and get back in the swing of things!

So I guess this will be my first official post being back 🙂
I want to take a second and just thank everyone for the support and love you have given me and my family during this horrific time.  Words can not describe how I feel.  I lost both my dad and mom. Words can’t describe how it feels to lose your parents.  I hope and I pray that my dad and mom are together and having a good time together in heaven.  I know we all pass away at some point in our lifetime.

But with my mom it doesnt feel real.   She goes in to the ER on January 29th for a broken arm. Found out she had cancer on that day and 2 weeks later, she is in heaven due to cancer. 🙁

I have much more to say, but I just am not in the mood right now.

Heads up, I do plan on getting back in the swing of things and blogging more.

And again, thank you for letting me have the time away to grieve.

And thank you to everyone who has prayed and showed their positive support during these difficult times.
