USS Guardian / Inside America’s UFO Investigation (History Channel)

USS Guardian

We were cruising through You Tube when we came across a video abut the USS Guardian that ran aground on the Tubbatha Reef in the Philippines.  This ship launched in 1985 as an Avenger Class Mine Countermeasures Ship and because the Navy upgrades all its ship to keep them “state of the art”.  How can a “state of the art” vessel run aground?  A US Navy vessel running aground in this day and age is completely insane.  What else are they hiding from us?  We have not heard of a US Navy vessel running aground since WW II and that was on purpose.  Beginning sailor under the age of 12 don’t run aground, maybe we should get some of these children and draft them into the Navy.  Here is a link to the Navy released results of investigation <<< Click here.  Notice that the CO and three others were relieved from duty.  The must have been partying while the other men were valiantly attempting to save the vessel.  The ship was so badly on the reef the only way they could salvage it was to take it apart from the top level down.  When they go to the hull they had to cut the hull in three pieces so they could lift each on barges to complete the salvage.  This kind of reflects the state of this country under the current government of total morons.

Inside America’s UFO Investigation (History Channel)

The History Channel is running this show tonight and its four hours long.  It could have been an hour long because they proved one thing.  There are UFO’s sightings all over the world and we have had some where we sent our military jets after the sighted UFO and we could not even come close to the UFO.  Besides, what would we do if we could catch it?  They have not done anything to provoke a hostile response so what we going to do, wave?  The aircraft carrier Nimitz had a run in with UFO’s and it was kept secret.  The Nimitz sent jets but the UFO’s were gone in an instant.  We have never heard of any plane or missile coming close.  Why would anyone commit a hostile act on a UFO that obviously has technology far beyond ours and could probably respond by wiping out mankind as we know it?  Here is the solution.  Do nothing.  Let the UFO’s come and go freely.  When they are ready to chat let them make the request.  We think we know why they are watching us.  They are amazed this civilization could screw up this planet so badly that we are committing a slow suicide with changing the climate to eliminate humanity.  Then they see the various countries threatening each outer with bombs instead of banning together to “fix” Mother Earth.  We think these UFO’s are sent by the creators of this planet and they are evaluating whether to wipe this planet clean of all living things like they have on several other occasions and start all over from the beginning.  They obviously can jump in and out of dimensions fairly quickly so they must be reporting to someone.  The only protection we have is to elevate the vibration of Mother Earth and bring back Jesus, Buddha, \Allah, and all the other religious leaders so they can come back and fix all the issues.  So leave the UFO’s alone people.  Maybe they will realize our leaders must first be removed to give us some sort of chance to survive.  We will know within about two years.  This is based on our research.

We have nothing else to report except to thank all of our subscribers and followers.  God bless all of you many times over.

Let’s Talk Toxins and How They Enter Our Body (Part 2 – Final)

We hope you all out there in the Universe are not depressed after reading Part 1, because this will be a somewhat happy ending?  We are doing these posts because we as consumers rarely hear any talk about “Food Toxins” and we only know because of the class we took at Stanford.  We feel the need to report this to all of you so we can clear it out of our mind to make room for other information. Hopefully the “mainstream” media will eventually start investigating toxins and make the “we could care less” manufacturers accountable for the production of toxins in their products.

Please note the picture in the upper left of this post.  “Plastics by Number” and the lower portion shows shat each number resides in like #5 in furniture, toys, etc.

Organophosphate Pesticides

Designed to attach nervous systems of insects – Humans have a similar system
Some banned in US but still persists in environment – Almost everyone will test positive for exposure
How to avoid?
–          Buy organic, seasonal, local, domestic produce

–          Wash fruits and vegetables with distilled water or mild soap (Got any distilled water around?)

–          Choose organic, low fat / no fat animal products

–          Make sure freshwater fish is not contaminated

–          Cook meat so fat melts away

PBDE Fire Retardants (Polybrominated diphenyl ethers)

·        How to avoid

–          Vacuum with HEPA filter to minimize toxic house dust

–          Don’t reupholster foam furniture

–          Don’t buy textiles/clothing treated with flame retardants

–          Cover mattress with allergen barrier

–          Replace old carpet and pad

–          Choose lean/low fat animal products

PFC’s (Perfluorinated chemicals) and Glyphosate (Roundup)

–          Found in non-stick, stain-resistant, water-resistant products >> ends up in water supply

–          Widespread and some forms (PFOA) never biodegrade

–          Avoid cosmetics with fluoro-, perfluroro-, or PTFE.  Also found in dental floss (Not the floss dance)

–          Roundup is the most widely used broad-spectrum herbicide in the U.S.

–          Monsanto produces genetically modified seeds for Roundup.

–          Linked to cancer, endocrine disruption, GI and neurocognitive problems, etc.  (Roundup is banned in many countries)

Detoxification – The LIVER (Our main Organ) (Stand-up and cheer for this organ)

–          Main organ in detoxification of toxins, hormones, medications, etc.

–          Fat soluble toxins generally have to be converted to a water soluble compound by the Liver

The Microbiome

·        The collective detoxification activity of the Microbiome probably exceed the Liver

·        So keep your microbiome Happy:

–          Fiber

–          Prebiotics

–          Probiotics

–          Avoid antibiotics

–          Eat good, sleep good, exercise, and don’t stress (Meditate)

Patterns of Toxicity:  Neuropsychiatric

Difficulty with memory, concentration, learning, irritability, depression, anxiety, migraines, headaches, tremor, autonomic dysfunction, etc

 Other patterns of Toxicity:  Immune dysfunction, Mitochondrial, Metabolic, Endocrine Disruption, Cancer, and Genetic Disorders

There are so many issues with these and because we don’t wish to make a book out of this post, please look up each as needed.

How to enhance Detox

Always start with a food first approach
–          Your weight in pounds divides 2 = ounces of water daily

Eat lots of phytonutrients (colorful vegtables)
Fiber
Eat high-quality protein (mostly plant based)
Sweat out toxins via exercise or sauna (or writing posts that have medical terms)
Sleep 8 – 9 hours
Once establish a firm foundation in nutrition, may pursue detox supplements under medical supervision
Safe Cell Phone Use

Our comment – this subject comes up often and because it does that means that nobody is doing anything about it.  Why?  Big money!  How about when a person gets sick let them sue the manufacturer of the cell phone they used most.  Remember when cancer victims that smoked sued the tobacco industry and won?  The same should apply with all toxins and cell –phones.

Maintain as much distance from your phone as possible.
Keep phone fully charged and use when you have a strong signal
Don’t let kids play with devices
Put router on timer so it’s off at night
Use wired headset (We have one on now) or speaker
Texting emits less radiation than calls.
Our comment – The list above will probably be follow by 0.000000000000000001 % of the readers of this post. (Maybe less)

That’s it folks.  Check out http://www.EWG.org for sources.  We also use meditation for “detoxing” and cleaning out the “crap” in our body.  In fact we did a four hour meditation “detox” just yesterday and we included regeneration of damaged cells.

We said in our last post that our phone “died” last weekend probably from radiating poisoning because it was really old.  Best thing to happen to us we found after some meditation.  We have been working on removing past events (See prior posts) and the phone contained quite a bit of the past and we probably would not have thought about getting rid of the phone so the Universe did it for us.  We are grateful once again.  We now were confronted by how much we been putting off like heavy duty deep meditations for our growth and writing posts more often than once a week.  We have decided that we need a secretary and we are now interviewing.  Position requires someone who can be depended on, has a car, will edit our posts, will keep track of all appointments, intuitive woman (Yes women because they are way more intuitive than men and 90% of our decisions are based in intuition), independent, have a great sense of humor, knows how to dimensional and astral travel (This should narrow it down), and be a kind person.

We have nothing else to add at this time except to thank everyone who stopped by to read this post and the other part.  We will now go on a “post” vacation for a few weeks to not post medical stories or any post where we don’t know how to pronounce 50% of the words in the post.  We are starting another class in August – “Chronic Tiredness”…a challenge to stay awake 🙂

Quit Smoking Assistance – Sharing Our Experience (Update)

xsmoking

We are happy to report that this coming January (2020) marks 8 years since we last smoked a cigarette. An accomplishment we are very proud of and we are going to share with others who are attempting to quit smoking but struggling with the task. So if you are a non-smoker you might move on to another site, but then again you might wish to share this site to someone you know that is attempting to quit smoking.
We found that when we decided to quit, we created the intention to quit smoking, and focused on the task at hand the solutions came our way quickly.

We were smoking one pack a day at the time, and we were going though a severe chest cold which seemed to a fairly regular event at back then. We also had been smoking for over five decades, yes folks, more than fifty years without ever seriously attempting to quit. So here is our solution to quitting which turned out to be easier than expected.

First we met a doctor that had organized a group of folks that under her supervision had quit smoking using a medication named Wellbutrin (There are other meds also, ask your doctor). The instructions were one pill a day for three days and then start with two pills a day and continue to smoke. When the third day arrived I had already cut down from 20 to 15 cigarettes a day. We found that we had a reaction to taking the second pill and the doctor said to just stay with the one a day. Within 10 days We were at 3 cigarettes a day and seemed to get stuck at three.

Then one day we were on my Facebook page when we saw a symbol on the right side that was a cigarette with a red crossed “X” over it. We stared at the symbol because I never click on those “pages you need to visit” symbols, but we went with a gut feeling and clicked on it. We then went to a page about quitting smoking by Alan Carr and it led me to a PDF download of a book named “The Easy Way to Stop Smoking” written by Alan Carr in 1985. We downloaded the file and read the book in one sitting. I have not smoked a cigarette since completing the book. (Thank you Allen)

Click here for a link to the Quit smoking site PDF File

What this book did for us was to point out that all the thoughts about why we liked smoking or why that cigarette with a cup of coffee first thing in the morning tasted so good, or yeah there is a chance of getting cancer, but not me, etc. The answer is those thoughts are coming from your ADDICTION! Yes your addiction is pointing out how much you enjoy smoking and how special you are for smoking without any issues and of course you are so special that cancer is not an option.

So the actual quitting was easy. We found the tough part was about 2-3 weeks later when we felt an urge for a cigarette when a situation occurred that when we were smoking, would smoke a cigarette. We have talked with other people who said this was the part that when they felt some stress, they automatically went back to smoking thinking they would attempt to quit at a later date. (Not being true to self) Our thought was “I did not quit smoking to go right back to it!” So what we did was I immediately noticed the situation that was causing the urge and then stopped what I was doing. We sat down and started a simple meditation where we focused on our in and out breath knowing that the urge would pass in about 20 seconds. Sure enough, it did pass and the next time the same situation came up the urge was non-existent. We did this every time we had the smoking urge and eventually it was a rare event.

These days focusing on your breathing during a meditation is called “Mindfulness Meditation” and classes on how to do Mindfulness Mediation are being offered by most hospitals across the country (For a fee). If you are luck enough to live in or near Redwood City California the Insight Meditation Center offers classes for free (Donations are accepted). Check their web site for more information

If you are interested in on-line classes here is a link to the Google Mindfulness on-line course, yes folks, Goggle has a course on mindfulness and from what we understand they support their employees in using this method to meditate. You even get a certificate when you complete the course.

We have nothing else to talk about at this time, but we invite you to post a comment if you would like more information or have a question or two. Be sure to include your email address and we will be sure to get back to you as soon as we can. Also if you don’t want your comment made public, please include a “NOT”.

Offering our help >>>We are offering our assistance to those who decide to quit. Send an email to alaboutnothing@gmail.com with RE: Quit smoking and we can set up some way for us to help you.  Via Phone, messaging, hang out, or straight phone call whenever needed.  If we can quit, so can you dear friend.

NOTHING is better than a smoke free environment!”  Please donate the cost of a pack of smokes to Saint Jude’s Hospital for Children or any other organization that is for children.  Namaste

Let’s Talk Toxins and How They Enter Our Body (Part 1)

 If you have been living in a cave in the mountains of Siberia for the last 50 years then you need to know that toxins in the air are among the worst cause of climate change, but we are not going there in this post even though one of the most toxic products for the environment and the body is shared and that is PLASTIC.  We are going to discuss how toxins enter the body, what creates toxins, and what can toxins cause in our health systems.  Please note that the company 4 Seasons Plastic removal  has currently 300 employees all around the world constantly cleaning up plastics polluting beaches and lands all around the world.  Please support 4 Seasons by going to their web site.

What is a toxin?

A compound that has an adverse effect on physiology

– Man Made ; BPA sed in manufacturing of plastics -> estrogenic effect

– Natural ; Botulinum toxin made by bacteria -> Botulism

How do Toxins Enter the Body?

Direct contact through skin and mucous membrane.
Ingestion through the gastrointestinal tract.
Inhales from the air.
Who is at greatest risk?

Developing babies
Pregnant women (And men or other, depending on what planet you live on)
Children
Women (and men) of childbearing (<did not know this was one word) age
Industrial workers
Obese individuals
People with chronic medical conditions
Endocrine Disruption and its effects:

Endocrine Disruption – Toxins can interrupt hormone function in humans.

Effects:

Miscarriage and abnormal fetal development
Infertility in men and women
Development problems
Precocious puberty
Thyroid dysfunction
Autoimmunity
Weight changes (Obesogens)
Cardiovascular disease and hypertension
Cancer

 

Mercury (Not the car)

Released into the air/oceans by burning coal or incinerating waste
Leaches from amalgam fillings into the body ( http://www.IAOT.org  to find a dentist for safe removal)
High fructose corn syrup contains mercury
Avoid mercury thermometers and fluorescent light bulbs
Invest in HEPA filter to remove mercury from air in your home

 

Lead (Can be tested for)

Found in drinking water, soil, air, etc.
Get rid of old paint on walls (Pre-1978)
Avoid older/imported toys, furniture, ceramics
Treat tap water to remove lead (Filter)
Plant5-based diets absorb less lead (and other toxins)

 

Arsenic

Found in Food, water, treated wood, chicken meat
Use water filter that removes Arsenic
Choose organically grown chicken (Arsenic is used as growth enhancer)
Remove old paint over treated wood

 

Cadmium

Found in cigarette smoke, soil, Ni-Cadmium batteries, paint, ceramics (Especially glazing), jewelry making
Certain foods may be high in Cadmium – Spinach, lettuce, potatoes, grains, soybeans, peanuts, sunflower seeds
Variety is important so you don’t get a big dose of one toxin
Stop Smoking (you can do it), avoid second and third hand smoke.

 

BPA (Bisphenol A)

Used in manufacturing of plastics
Imitates estrogen
Avoid canned foods (found in lining)
Avoid plastics (#7 has BPA)
-choose glass, stainless steels or porcelain
-No plastic in the dishwasher or microwave
-Avoid health, beauty, food products in plastic containers
Great website for alternatives  http://www.LifeWithoutPlastic.com
Paper receipts (Cashiers highly exposed < tough to eliminate)
BPA-free products often contain toxic BPS

 

Dioxin (found in)

PVC production, industrial bleaching (White paper), waste incineration, high fat animal products, and breast milk
Organic produce does not reduce dioxin exposure.  Wash fruits and vegetables before eating (Now see why water filter is needed)
Avoid smoke, vapors, incinerators, soil in hazardous waste areas, and fresh water fish like catfish, trout, and carp
Other places found – cling wrap, Tupperware, shower curtains, photo albums, dish racks, notebooks, binders, cell phones (Yes folks cell phones), table cloths, computer keyboards (We are typing with rubber gloves on), credit cards (Could be toxic in more ways than one), fake xmas trees, mouse pads, paper clips, toys, balls, kids swimming pools, labels/stickers. Appliance housing (TV , video), imitation leather furniture, shutters (not camera), rain gear, blister packs (No clue what this is), plastic bags, watch bands

 

PCB (Polychlorinated biphenyl) Atrazine, and Phthalates

PBC found in building materials, electrical products, caulking, paint, glues, plastics, fluorescent lighting, banned in 1979 but persists in soil, air, water
PCB avoid by don’t eat meat dairy, fish (from polluted areas), choose organic meat, poultry, fish, low-fat/non-fat organic dairy products

Atrazine found in herbicide used in corn crops, and ends up in drinking water
Avoid Atrazine – avoid fields where atrazine has been sprayed (How would you know?), buy organic, use water filter (Popular device)
Phthalates are found in making plastic flexible, lubricant in cosmetics, PVC products (Plastic #3), toothbrushes, perfume, laundry detergents, anything labeled “fragrance”, insecticides, insect repellent, steering wheels, the “new car smell”, carpeting, vinyl flooring, coating on wires, shower curtains, plastic toys, IV bags and tubing

 

We are at the end of part 1 and when we were in the class at this point we were thinking how overwhelming all of this is. It seemed like there is nothing safe and we might be wearing rubber (Detox) gloves forever.  We had to force ourselves to stay in the moment because thoughts like calling our doctor to get some depression meds or running down to the weed store (because we can here in CA).  Think about that kid “in the bubble” he was actually in a toxic bubble if it was made out of plastic.  Next time we go in an Uber we will ask if the car has been detoxified.  One of the samples the teacher gave is when we sit on our couch a puff of toxins goes up in the air about four feet and we breath it right in.  Yes folks, we were on the phone calling the weed store and placing an order.  Ut oh!  Wonder if the weed has been sprayed?  Then we though “Wait!  Most of the meds come in plastic bottles!”  Heck with it, sprayed on not sprayed weed is the answer.

We are putting together part 2 and we have canceled our weed order.  Folks it’s all good.  We are reporting on this because the “big guy” companies don’t give a crap (Toxic) about what is going in our bodies.  They care about one thing “The almighty dollar”.  We need to talk about this and start calling our representatives in DC to get change.  Yes we know that the biggest toxic problem is Trump, but he can be removed like a puddle of dog pee-pee on your carpet.  All votes are solutions.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to tell our personal friends that our phone has passed away by choice so it would not continue to expose us to toxins and we are looking for a non toxic solution.  We will phone a friend when we get a new one.  Thanks to all of you who take your precious time to stop by.

The Curse of Civil War Gold – History Channel Review

We are working on getting a post about toxic foods, honest. In the mean time we feel like we need to do a post about this show that is is the second season and a spin-off of The Curse of Oak Island.  Marty from Oak Island first met with these guys and now Marty’s son is directly involved in this show.  We watched a few of season one, but the only thing we found is “There isn’t any curse on the Civil War Gold”.  The only reason that put “The Curse of” in the title is because it’s a spin off of Oak Island.  Right off we were suspect about this show.

Last season the point was to find the gold that was supposedly dumped into Lake Michigan and they had the need to justify this to Marty so that Marty would back them in their search.  They did and this season they started diving on where they thought the gold was in Lake Michigan.  This is where they expect the viewers to trust them. Get this.  The dive down and find what looks like a wreck sight and they find some objects the size of a brick.  Yes, the size of a brick would indicate a gold bar to us and if it was us we would grab that “brick” and take it to the surface and scrap it off to see if it is a gold bar BUT instead, they say “We can’t move or touch anything we find because the State of Michigan must give us a permit.”  If you believe this then we have a bridge to sell you.  They have been searching for this gold for years and now they are close, but they don’t touch the object(s) when no one is looking (Turn off the camera).  Come on folks!  The only “curse” has to be watching this nonsense.

Then of course they seem to find that there is some sort of huge conspiracy also involved in the dumping of this gold so off they go chasing rumors as to prove their new theory.  By the way if you listen to what the “voice” commentary is saying then that should throw you way off in where these guys are going.  Then one day they were scanning a property looking for a tunnel and the device they were using showed what looked like a tunnel under the ground.  Good huh?  No, the excuse they gave for not being able to dig is because they need permission from the owners of the property.  Figures, Right?  This show is right up there to when on April 21, 1986 when Geraldo Rivera went searching live for “The Mystery if Al Capone’s Vaults” on a live broadcast and found nothing.  It was a total bust!  All he found was debris. (The video is on Geraldo’s web site)

Our opinion is if you want to know how this will end, then watch the last show otherwise go search for something else to watch at this time.  (We suggest America’s Got Talent)

We have nothing to add at this time except to say to today’s Uber riders we shared a car with, that was an awesome ride and it was great to be around “like-minded” people.  God bless all of our subscribers and followers.  And to Mario the Uber driver on the way back we say “Hallelujah”!!

Mind Body Balance Class Final – Overview

Course description “An 8 week course to reboot for health” and “In this course, you will learn what it takes to achieve your best health, alongside other like-minded people on the same journey.”

This class came to us when we were working on fine tuning our “Third Eye” (Intuition) and looking for something that would help us attain a solution to a spiritual block we have been meditating on for weeks.  When we received the brochure from Erin it sure felt good and we jumped on the chance to take this course and we called the same day later in the day.  Our excitement grew when we were signed up for the class and given a starting date.  Even though we were excited about this class we have learned that when something new comes along we choose to go into it without any expectation, this way nothing is expected and if something surprises us then we can enjoy the revelation.  (A good tip from us to you)  As it turns out we were constantly surprised by how much we learned and enjoyed every moment.  After meeting all our “class mates” we enjoyed the energy they emitted to the entire room.  Being a Reiki Level II healer from the first day we wanted to heal everyone from the onset, so everyday we did a “energy send” which usually requires an acceptance from the “patient”, but we made a point of starting the “send” just before class to the entire room and continued to the daily end of class.  Our thought process was “The energy will go to all and be used where needed without any judgment on our part”.  The following description is a weekly overview, which we are working on the details for later posts.  There was just so much information that the weekly post will be lengthy enough and hopefully interesting because we will present it in “our words” and one of those words will not be “Try”.  (Ok Teach?).  Our intuition turned out to be spot on and the “energy blockage” was solved and we are now moving along at “break neck” speed.

Overview:

Week 1:  We started with an overview of what the next 8 weeks subjects by week will be.  Then we talked about stress and how life events create stress and affects the onset and course of many illnesses.  Stress on the immune system might dysfunction, hormones levels, nervous system and the effects of stress on our DNA.  Then we discussed Mind Body techniques to relieve stress mainly meditation.  The “present” moment in particular and the book “The Power of Now” by Eckhart Tolle was suggested reading.  (We agree)  (We of course would suggest that you the reader could also read through many of our posts and get to the same results.)  We discussed the benefits or meditation and then did a group meditation.

Week 2:  “The art of eating” We admit before this we knew nothing in detail about food.  Back in the day we were working there we many days of “Pizza, coffee, and junk food in general”, but now we have learned about organic foods however, nothing in particular.  We discussed nutrition, the digestive process, Protein, “Animal vs. Plant Protein”, Fat, Saturated Fat, Monounsaturated Fat (Omega 9), Polyunsaturated (Omega-3), Cholesterol, Omega 6, Trans fats, Carbohydrates, Fiber, Micronutrients, and Phytonutrients.  (When we do the detailed week post, please bring a dictionary with you).

Week 3:  More about foods like Poultry, Fish, Caffeine, Sugar, artificial sweeteners (Very bad), Glycemic Index, Junk Food, Water, Oils, Cookware, Ayurvedic Dietary, and how to read the labels on food products and the trickery involved by the companies providing foods.

Week 4: This week the subject was Toxins that are basically everywhere and how toxins get in our body.  An awesome site for checking toxins in specific products is “EWG ORG Site”.  Toxins and the Effects of Endocrine Disruption, Mercury, Lead, Arsenic, Cadmium, BPA (Bisphenol A), Dioxin, Atrazine, PCB, Phthalates, Plastics, Organophosphate Pesticides, Detoxification our Liver, Cell Phones, various forms of “detoxing”.

Week 5:  The subject was Vitamins, Herbs, and Natural Supplements.  Whole Foods vs. Nutrition Supplements, Vitamins, A, C, E, D, K, B, (WE knew two A & C and none with numbers added), Vitamin Deficiency, B1 (Thiamine), B2 (Riboflavin), B3 (Niacin), B% (Pantothenic Acid), B6 (Pridoxine P5P), B7 (Biotin), B9 (Folate), B12 (Cyanocobalamine), details of B, C, D 1&3, E, and then moved on to Herbs.

Week 6:  Herbs (We though “herbs was a group of Herbert s) Aloe Vera, Black Cohosh, Ashwagandha, Boswellia (Frankincense), Calendula, Chamomile, Chasteberry, Chondrointin, Dandelion, Echinacea, Garlic, and many others.

Week 7 & 8:  Subject description “Integrative Medicine and Complementary Therapies”, East vs. West, Terminologies, Acupuncture, Meridians, Qi, Musculoskeletal Points (Ear), Reiki, Homeopathy, Ayurveda, Vatta, Pitta, Kapha, and Aromatherapy with Essential Oils.  (CBD Oil was discussed)

At the end of the day everyone applauded our beyond awesome teacher Susan Payrovi M.D. and if any of you out there wish to take this class there is another class starting soon.  Please Call Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine at (650) 498-5566 if you choose.

For all our friends who know us you know that this entire post was copied from documents e received in class, because there is no way we could even come close to spelling some of these words and even now most of the correct spelling words are coming up with red lines under them.  There is so much to learn and the overall solution to healthy eating seems to be “Vegan”.  We admit that we are following up with this thought in our mind however our focus is simply eating healthy; the “vegan” might come along later.  When we do the weekly posts we will for sure go find a medical dictionary for spell checking because this page looks like some kind of foreign flag.  (CR + numbers – no email?)

Thanks to all my new friends and subscribers who take time of their day to read our posts.  God bless all of you many time over.

We have nothing to except a reminder that we once read in a book by Marianne Williamson that a miracle is “A change of thought” and we have to say this class was one miracle after another.

Computer Science – The Dark Ages (60’s)

One of the questions we always ask when we meet a student at Stanford University is “What is your major?”  We did it when we were driving for Uber and we still ask to this day when we meet a student.  Why you ask?  The answer is because our career was as a software developer, but our first job was as a computer operator back in the mid-sixties.  When we get and answer from the student that says “Computer Science is my major.”  We then say “get this my friend.  The first computer we ever worked on had vacuum tubes!”.  This answer blows them away every time and the best response was on an Uber ride when the young man said “No way!  I have heard of those computers, but I have never met anyone who worked on one.  You need to come to my class and give a speech!”  (We never got the invite).  So here are the details.

 Our fist job was in 1964 with an engineering company in Chicago at 20 North Wacker Drive.  (The Civic Opera House building).  We were hired to work the midnight shift as an operator and they said they had ordered a new IBM 1130 Computer but it is not ready yet so you can get used to how we work and get an idea of the direction we wish to go.  The computer we would be working on was a Control Data G-15 (See picture in upper left of this post). The G-15 was about the size of a short refrigerator and the left and right side had doors that opened to multiple banks of vacuum tubes.  On top of the box was exhaust a fan at each of the four corners and above the box was an exhaust fan blowing the very hot air out the window.  We found that on the midnight shift in the winter if we turned off the exhaust fan the computer would hear the entire room.  The G-15 had 4K of drum memory and the main input was paper tape.  The program language as machine language and the printed output came out on an updated IBM typewriter.  We used the typewriter to start each job processing.  It was an awesome job because we were young and learning really cool stuff.  They said that if we ran out of work to do we could leave and go home.  Instead we read through the comport manuals just to learn more.  Back in those days computer were mainly IBM and few and far between.  This particular engineering company was forward thinking and that is what we liked about them.  To create the paper tape we learned how to type on a “Flex-writer” which is what punched the tape we would eventually be input.  We used large movie reels to wind the paper tape on and the feed from the reels to the G-15.  On the face of the G-15 were two places to put metal rollers and we put the tape between the two rollers, then crossed rubber bands to guide the tape through as the roller spun and the G-15 read the punched tape.  We called rubber bands “Computer Adaption Devices”.  As the tape was read through from the reels we had a large cardboard box on the other end so the tape would fall into it as we processed each job.  When the tape was done being read we simply wound that tape back on the reel and labeled it.

Now we must say that the processing to the typewriter was not the fastest by today’s standards but in those days it was lightning.  Every once in awhile the tape would break and we became Master Tape Splicer’s” and have the tape back running in no time.  Then sometimes the dreaded computer break-down would occur.  An error code would print on the type-writer and we would call for service.  Usually it was one of the vacuum tubes “dying” so the guy at the other end of the phone would say “Open the left door and on the door count down four rows then over to the 15th vacuum tube and replace it with the good one.  Then we would test and “bingo” we were off and running again.  Simple huh? (We have a smile thinking about those days).

Flex-writer

 Then when they received the 1130 IBM (State of the art back then) we went to 96 column card input and out was to a bar printer along with a flat bed plotter and a drum plotter. The program language was Fortran Four and this is where we taught ourselves how to program when we ran out of jobs to process. We could go on about this computer but the whole point of this post is the G-15 where our fantastic career started.  We worked for the engineering company for ten years and the started out consultant with a software company and then eventually becoming a contract programmer.

We thank the Universe for our great career where we were with leaders in the various industries we did software for.  We had a woman’s retail store as a client and we were the first ones to receive data to and from a NCR Register. We also created a routine to set up Vendor/Style/Color/Size for specific SKU numbers. (Another first).  Then we started printing bar codes on dot matrix printers and eventually moving to bar code printers (Another first).  They had to use tungsten heads on the dot matrix printer because the print heads would wear out.  There was much more as we progressed along.  We met some great people and moved all around the country.

Note:  Back in the 60’s IBM had their main head quarters in Chicago and every man had to wear a black suite, white shirt, black shoes, and black tie.  We called them “penguins”. (Now days we would call that “Men in black”)  IBM used to give other companies money to keep them afloat so that IBM would not be considered a monopoly, but in the end they were broken up because they were considered a monopoly.  The good “old” days!

Well folks thanks for stopping by and checking out our post and if you have any questions or any invites for speeches please send us an email.  We appreciate all comments and besides the email will be a zillion times faster than the G-15 output.

We have nothing else to add at this time except the welcome all the new subscribers and send our blessing out to all and all them Kat’s.

My Uber Journal – As a Rider (Passenger)

For about 3 years we have been using Uber to get around the San Francisco Bay area because we do not own a car.  When we ceased diving for Uber we thought, “Since we don’t have a car why not ride with Uber because we really don’t drive or need to go any long distances and if we do, we can go by jet”.  So now we don’t have a car payment, pay auto insurance, pay for gas, worry about the stress of driving and where ever we go we have a great chauffeur and we meet some awesome people.  If you are a senior citizen living on retirement and don’t really need a car, we would suggest Uber for you.  Also we make a point of riding “pool” because it’s cheaper and sometimes we get to meet more folks.

Because we kept a journal when we drove we are now going to start as a rider mainly because the last few weeks we have had some awesome rides.  Right off we wish to say that as most of you know, we believe everything happens for a reason and the same applies with our Uber rides as it does for all of the daily experiences.  We look forward to riding with Uber because we know a great conversation will take place and we will learn a bit more about the people we meet.

Just last Tuesday we did an Uber and our drivers was Amit and like every other ride, when we entered the vehicle it was like we were meeting an old friend that we needed to catch up with.  Right off we started taking about Uber and then moved on to meditation which we were happy to find out that Amit does meditate and has been for a long time.  Then right after we crossed the bay we started taking about inter-dimensional travel, which we have experience with now that we have been invited to go to the city of Telos.  Right in the middle of our conversation Amit received a notification to pick up another rider. (We only ride pool which means other riders might be picked up).  We asked Amit what the riders name was.  He said “Francisco”.  We said “This should be interesting because Francisco is my middle name in Spanish.”  Amit said “No way!”  We said “way” He said “Cool1” We picked up Francisco and we said Hello!  We continued with inter- dimensional conversation with Amit.  A few minutes later Francisco laughed and said “You guys are not going to believe this but when I was waiting for you I was watching a show about inter-dimensional travel on History Channel.”  We said “great, now we have a three way conversation.”  The a few minutes later we asked “Do you want to learn how to travel?”  They both said “Yes”.  So we taught them how to travel using the Astral Travel Method.  We said “It’s not like your going to catch on right away, you will have to practice. We suggest when starting only go down your street or anywhere else close.  We also stressed that before you do any traveling be sure to protect yourself with a “ring of fire” and take a few Arch Angels along.  Then we said “Okay guys we are going to make you a deal.  Now that we taught you we want to see your progress so how about this.  Every day at 11:00 PM we will meet you on the roof of the Stanford Tower.  We can sit and chat about where we wish to go from there.”  They both said “Okay!”  We continued talking and dropped off Francisco.  We said “Francisco see at 11:00 PM.  Namaste”. Then it was my turn and we said to Amit “Wow!  Great die huh?  We wish you a great day and may you prosper. Namaste.”  Amit said “Best ride ever.”  We thought “Chalk up another great Uber ride. It sure is great to be flowing though this life and having these awesome experiences. Love it!”

Now yesterday we had another cool ride.  Ali picked us up and of course it was another “Wow, we haven’t see you in ages” conversation.  We talked mainly about various religions.  Ali is Muslim and we said that we said our friend Abdul we met on Uber and he has been teaching us about the details of the religion.  We listened on You Tube to the oral version of the Koran. We did agree that Muslim is very close to Catholicism, but just close.  Then Ali received a notification to pick up Ananya (Fake name) at the Stanford Clinic in Redwood City and off we went.  We said to Ali that “e were just her last week and our final today is at a Stanford office in Menlo. LOL guess Stanford is a biggie for us lolol”.  When Ananya entered the car her smile brightened all around.  She has one of the happiest smiles we have seen for awhile.  We started talking and she said she was a student at Stanford going for her Master Degree in Computer Science.”  We asked ‘What are you going to do when you complete your degree?” She said, “Go back to India.” Then we said “What?  Now way!  Please stay in USA!. What the heck are those other computer sciences students thinking?  They have an awesome person like Ananya attending their school and they are going to let her go?”  Amid said “Please stay young lady! We will miss you.”  She said “Awe thank you guys.”  We said “Please think about it.” She said “Okay I will.” Probably out of being polite so hey you guys and gals studying computer science at Stanford, find her and convince he to stay in the US.  Next thing we knew we were being dropped of and said “Namaste to you guys.  Hope to see you again Ananya when you have your masters.”  Of we went to see one of our favorite Doctors for our check up.  Once again we were beaming from ear to ear after another great Uber ride.

We always say in our posts that communication with others is why we are here and we find that these Uber rides we really feel the connection and the exchange of ideas really pumps up our energy.  We are always thankful to God for meeting these wonderful people.

We have nothing else to report right now except that here is a lin k to the You Tube Mediation video we are listening to <Listening to right now>
