Everyday that we get up, we hear the proverbial radio alarm pronouncing it is once again Ground Hog day with Sonny & Cher singing "The Beat Goes On". (American Movie reference starring Bill Murray, who is trapped to repeat Ground Hog Day until he transforms himself and finds true Love, ending what seems years of repeating Ground Hog Day.

We simply need a forum and dialogue on Pain on Phoenix Rising! The Beat Goes On!
