Clean Air

Life is tough sometimes
There are a million decisions to make
And none of them
Are easy

There are things
You want to do
But can’t
And things
You don’t want to do
But have to

There are good times
And hard times
And days you feel
Like nobody
could ever possibly understand

What it is like to be you
And you know
That is probably right.

But Jesus is here
If you want to talk
Or hang out

And forget about life
For just a short while.
He is here for the long haul
Or just for a mile.

Hang in there … it is all going to work out

Watch N See.

Let’s throw this one out on the porch and see if the cat will lick it up.  Have found some time to read this week, and that is always good. I enjoy reading other peoples stuff. I am reading this science fiction book and they are talking about putting astronauts to sleep on long voyages into space. A sort of “suspended animation” if you will?

They do this so that on the long deep penetrations into space, so the members of the space crew do not age.

Now it appears that this could be possible. Scientists have taken a big step toward making that dream a reality. A recent study in which they’ve successfully halted the metabolism of test mice while actually keeping them alive has just taken place back east.

They did this by dosing mice with hydrogen sulfide gas (this is the gas that gives swamps and rotten eggs their stink). After inhaling the gas, the animals’ metabolisms completely stopped and their heartbeats slowed to roughly half the regular rate.

So it occurred to me.

“If you were to ride with me after consuming Mexican Food, in the cab of an enclosed pickup, on a long red dirt road in Oklahoma some afternoon, I could actually suspend a few months, possibly a year or two of your life.”

Breathe deep.

  1. Very funny!!!
    This morning i was watching a show in South Africa and Dr Robert Rey was a guest speaker. He is apparently 50 years old, but really looks like he may be in his 30’s…… You know him hey? Oh- you went on a cross country trip with him? Through Mexico?
    Anyway, my knight asked- would you really like to look that young at that age.
    Obviously- yes.
    He then said that you “need to age together”.
    So we would both need to come!!
    I believe if given the chance, everyone (no exceptions) would jump at the chance to “do it all over again.” I often think I would like to go back to my youth and then I remember Viet Nam and I am not so keen on the idea. But if we could choose the time and the place, now that might be interesting.



  2. OK…the closing was a wee bit shall we say…off color….BUT thinking about the sulfur…hmmm… that probably is the reason that the mineral hot springs are so good for you.

    Heavy sigh,,,, deep breath or what ever….
    Life is still GOOD!
    Hey kid! Come here and pull my finger. Hahahaha. It is an interesting idea, we could actually be in the forefront of something really big.
