All pharmaceutical medicine is descended from nature’s bounty. Plants, animals & fish, minerals, and oxygen are all drugs nature provides. Even the sun provides endorphins, which are feel-good hormones for people and animals. All of these are critical for humans to survive.

Science has largely ignored plants and their potential beneficial uses, instead preferring to focus on sensationalistic and negative aspects of drug use. Too much of anything will indeed kill a person. Too much water will drown a person from the inside. Too much oxygen will cause oxygen poisoning, which is called oxidative stress. And everybody knows that drugs can kill when they are misused.

The benefits of drugs are numerous. Medications are helpful, from pain management to cancer treatment and Vitamin C to nitroglycerin. Since the caveman discovered that certain plants have unusual or medicinal effects, drugs have been used.

Who am I to say no to such a long history of drug use?

Throughout time, people have learned that too much of anything is bad for a person. Caffeine can kill when it is abused, just like any opiates. People have known to be moderate with drug use rather than radical. Things that kill are to be avoided. It’s just common sense.

I know whereof I speak. Drugs I am familiar with and comfortable with are many. The illegal ones are THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, found in marijuana, and psilocybin, found in magic mushrooms. The legal ones include a lifelong love of caffeine and a relatively long duration of smoking nicotine.

I am 67 years old now, and I’m just starting to think I should have tried more recreational drugs. Fortunately, it may not be too late for that.

LSD is the only extra illegal drug that I have tried and liked. I was too afraid of it, though – the news people scared me into thinking it was a dangerous and suicidal drug. As a result, I couldn’t relax enough to enjoy it. But in retrospect, I am rethinking my views. Maybe it is time to revisit LSD and see what happens.

I am just saying.

The pharmaceutical drugs I use regularly are antidepressants, Prosac, and Abilify to kick the Prosac. I also take Ativan occasionally to sleep and for fits of nervousness. Ativan is a drug like Valium.

Then too, I take vitamins and Trelegy for COPD. I am on oxygen as well. Any of these can kill me if I overdo it. Fortunately, I have too much common sense for that.

Recently I’ve been watching Joe Rogen on YouTube. He inspires me to continue with my drug experiments. My recent experiences with magic mushrooms have been epiphanies for me. They are simply lovely for various reasons. Magic mushrooms are mood elevators and color brighteners, and they help me to think more clearly.

A state of mind is like a dark cupboard, very spooky if you don’t know what’s in there. Worse too, if you keep hearing weird banging noises every once in a while.

OMG! Just stop talking. You’re making me crazier than usual. And the banging? I can account for that. Oh yes, I can.

Ok then.

Looking For A Job

The worst thing about looking for a job is the looking part. It’s all day and every day. It doesn’t quit.

Here are the 5 worst things about looking for a job.

1. Waking up every morning and facing the day. Squarely and with head on straight. No drugs or alcohol to smooth the traumatic jarring of morning time. And sure as hell, no smoking. The hard cold reality is hell on the nervous system. Coffee is our only friend.

2. Making the lists of what to do today. Checklists are valuable, and checklists are good. It’s a positive damn step, any which way you look at it, a regular daily outing. Go ahead and call it religious; it will help to deal with the task.

3. Answer the damned phone if it rings. Do no more than that. Accept all calls and texts. It may be a JOB. Friend or foe? Put a quick block on the hell nos, and with savage haste, go on your way.

4. Check the godawful email. First, skim it for import. Then sort it into 3 quick categories.

• Delete

• Important

• The quick glance-through

5. Going to sleep and knowing that you’re still looking for a job when you wake up. All hope is lost. Light a candle before bed to reinforce your job-hunting goodwill. Pray, as you’ve never prayed before, gimmee, gimmee, gimmee a job. Circle back to # 1.

Hell rained upon my head and my computer wouldn’t work.  I pounded on those keys, but it helped not at all.  My desktop was bad broken, no work no more.  I finally took it to the shop and had some kind of transplant done.  Also I bought a laptop.  This is the story of my perilous journey to the ownership of two computers.

I have not been around many of your own wonderful blogs this last couple of weeks, due to work commitments and shear tiredness on my part, so I haven’t been on WordPress much these last few days only to moderate my site comments.

I have however got a backlog of wonderful awards that I need to address which have come in from late last year and the New Year I hardly know where to start.

Thank you to…

The poor, the crazy, the disenfranchised, the elderly, the destitute, all these have their special place among the lowest of the classes.  Their numbers grow, but dispassionately we say, the poor are always with us.  Yes, the poor are always with us, so I guess that makes it okay.

Above all, there will be no laughing; the workplace is no place for humor of any kind.

1. The thing that will get you into the most trouble at work is a bad attitude. Some of us are born with it and some manage to finely hone this attribute throughout the years. The remaining  items are also old school versions of a bad attitude.
