New Catch Phrases and other stuff

Since the Pound Sign (#) is now called the “Hashtag” we figured there must be other words that should be replaced because of the “techie” revolution.  The Pound Sign is still call “Pound Sign” by programmers because the symbol is used for masking numeric amounts when programming in BBx and or any other character based languages like Foo-Man Choo, Innie Meenie Miney Moo, Sweet & Sour, Your It, and the world famous and all encompassing Pig Latin.

So here are our picks and we officially copyright them as of December 10, 2018, just in case we see them used without authorization, or blatantly used without any concern to the people who are actually effected.  (Should we use affected here?)

A few years ago our left elbow started hurting like it was sprained and it was starting to impair our movement so we made an appointment and went to the doctor.  After some minor tests the doctor said “You have Tennis Elbow”.  We said, “Doctor we have not played tennis in decades.”   The doctor said “That’s the name for what you are experiencing.”  We said “Then doctor we have a new name for this because we know what caused it.”  We said “It now officially “Tablet Elbow” because this is the arm we hold our table with when we are using it and we are on our tablet for hours per day.”  We are guessing that there are many of you out there in cyber-land that may have gone though this and now you know what it’s called.  The cure is a athletic bandage wrap and Ibuprofen as needed.  It did take several weeks before it went away, and we have not experienced it since.

Are next offering is about this blog.  We have not posted anything for a long time because there is so much going on that we simply could not decide on what to post. A friend said “You might have writers block.”   We thought for a few minutes and said “We are not writers like one would think. We are bloggers so we must have “Bloggers Block”!  Yes, in this day and age where Bloggers are all over the place on the web, this has to be the new name!  In short “BB” would describe it to other bloggers and they would know what we are talking about.  Now if you’re a “writer”, then you can still use the “writers block”, but if you attempt to use “Bloggers Block” then you might be prosecuted for misdirection of a “catch phrase” and it could destroy your reputation.  Of course, if your both, then that will be taken in to consideration by the Blogger Detectives handling your case.  We can feel the stress of millions of Bloggers out there in cyber-land going away because we now have identified this common illness and now they can get on with their lives and stop “milling about” (Archangel Michael used “milling about” in the movie “Michael” when he was describing how it was before he invented “standing in line”).

If you noticed above where we asked “Should we use Affected here?” This is another phrase we want to bring to your attention.  If you have read our blogs over the years you have noticed we are, wait for it, we are “Grammar Challenged”.  We are often corrected by our friends who are professional super spellers or “anal” perfect grammar self appointed authorities mostly with a sun sign of “Gemini” or “Virgo”. These people are usually “writers” who look down on “bloggers” as an inferior form of communication and should be control by some made up Department of Grammar.  Our point is if the reader knows what you are talking about, then we don’t need to take a decade of grammar classes just to use a mere word correctly when in fact we probably use the word once in a lifetime.  (Wonder how many “writers” clicked out of this post here?)  We do believe “Words Matter” but not all and not always.  If it matters then we go to Google and look it up.  In some of our posts we invited the readers to correct us and we have “never” received a spelling or grammar correction.  Our readers are the smartest gramarist (actual word) in the Universe.

Now we bring to your attention another catch phrase that make up back in the 90’s, and have often used to describe the reading of misspelled words. When someone asks how we read something misspelled we say “We read “typoese” and are have been fluent readers for years. We found back in the 90’s that hanging around in Over-Forty chat rooms on AOL the spelling was not very good and the text was moving so fast you not only had to be a fast reader, but you had to quickly figure out what they meant and it was usually nothing of meaning, so we would just move on.  Usually at the end of the paragraph it was clear what they were saying. If you want to know our AOL screen-name email us, we might have met in a room or up in the loft and took a gondola ride. (Hidden meaning)

Because our career was as a software developer we usually worked with the IT Departments of our clients and there was one phase we bust a gut laughing about.  It was when a user would send a “fix ticket” asking where the “any” key was.  It was when a message would display on an application they were using saying “Hit any key to continue.”  We would sit in meeting just laughing out asses off.  Eventually we figured out that the users were sending these on purpose, or at least we hoped they were.  If you were one of the users we apologize for laughing, please forgive us. (Karma adjustment).  Obviously we had nothing better to do.

We have some great stories about IT, but that is for a later post. Especially the story of when all the IT departments of Starchwood Adult Toys in the country were on a conference call with corporate in NY.  There were probably several hundred people on a “live” call.  A small office in AZ where there was one guy on the call that did not realize that anything he said would broadcast throughout all the connections.  Someone in his office evidently stopped by and asked him if he wanted to go for a round of golf?  He then said, wait for it, “I am on a F***ing conference call with corporate and barely staying awake, so I can’t go.”  We heard it and so did everyone else and it happen to be a satellite office of the office where we were.  Everyone at the table looked at each other with eyes raised and mouths open.  People ran out the door laughing loudly.  There was a VP in the room that immediately got up and left.  Rumor has it that the guy in AZ was gone the next day.

We have nothing to report at this time except to thank all of you that read our posts and hopefully we have taught you how to read “typoese”.  Did this advance your career?  If it did, please donate a chunk of change to St. Jude Hospital in Memphis TN.  Thanks to all our readers and we look forward to using lousy grammar to enhance your lives and make you feel good that you are not the only grammar impaired person in the Universe.

Immortal / Immorality – Word Review

The other day we were watching a movie of a WWII battle and when one of the guys stood up and started spraying the field in front of him with bullets the guy next to him grabbed him and pulled him to the ground.  Then he said “What?  Do you think you are immortal?”  Well, there it was “immortal” and it got us thinking because we have seen that word before, but never though much about it until now.  The dictionary has im-mor-tal as “Living forever, never dying or decaying.”  We would hope decaying is not an option because we would not want the zombie look as we go though our many lives.

In past posts we have explained our belief on reincarnation and that is immortality for our souls on a spiritual level, but what about a physical level?

So now we wondered if we knew anyone that is immortal.  So we thought about it and we don’t ever remember anyone of our friends or acquaintances ever telling us they were immortal.  But just because they didn’t tell us doesn’t mean they aren’t, they might be hiding it.  So how can we tell if one of them is and they are nor saying?  So we decided to start dropping hints like when one of them was speeding down the freeway we would say “Do you think if one of the oncoming cars jumped the divider and hit us head-on would be killed instantly?” They always say “yes”.  So we decided to flat out ask “Would you want to live forever?”  Answer always “no”.  Now maybe they are immortal and they don’t know it?

How do you know if you’re immortal or not?  If you are do you get a certified letter from God?  You open the letter and it says “To Sam, this letter is to inform you that your prayers have been heard and we now declare you and immortal human.  Yes Sam, you will live forever the minute you look at the certificate included in this letter.”  “Sam we must warn you that if you are having second thoughts about being immortal it’s too late.  We saw you thinking be careful what you ask for the other day and we suggest you put those thoughts out of your mind because it might have negate the immortal effect.  WARNING:  If you knowingly decide to test if you’re immortal or not, this also might negate the immortality because it’s meant to take effect without you knowing.  If you knowingly decide to test it anyway and you step in front of a speeding bus and after the bus slams on the brakes and you don’t walk away, then you’re dead.  If this happens please call Customer Service at YOU-ARE-DEAD (968-273-3323) when you get to the Pearly Gates.  If you do walk away or crawl away, then even if you’re damaged and might be disabled, you proved your immortal, but we suggest you don’t try again.  We will know Sam, we will know.”

We have some other questions like do you get to choose the age in which you start being immortal?  We have to assume the minute it kicks in you will go though eternity the exact age you are at that moment.  We guess you will know when you are because you will cease aging and look the same day after day forever.  (We hope the letter comes).  We think our fiends would notice that you are not changing physically or that you are out living everyone, then again maybe not.

So let’s say you are immortal and a massive asteroid slams in to the Earth and completely obliterates the planet into a bazillion little pieces of dirt floating around in space.  There you are floating in space with all that dirt forever?   Come on folks, the Earth is eventually going to stop functioning but your not if you’re immortal.  So then what?  Does it mean that every atom down to your DNA heals and stay healed?  If you’re older you might be taking prescription drugs so will you continue taking them forever? We would assume the healing would take place.

We wonder how you would keep it a secret. For example if you are sky diving and when you jump out of the plane your main and safety parachutes fail and you hit the ground like a free falling safe and actually bury yourself a few inched in the sod.  Do you get injuries like everyone else?  If you get up and walk away would kind of give it away that you are “special” and your story would probably go viral and your would probably be on all the headlines of newspapers.  Then what do you say?  This would be a good time to follow the Trump mantra and “Deny everything always.”

We guess we will be pondering this for awhile, but right now we say “no” to immortality until we have way more answers to our questions.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank the Universe for sending the rain to Northern and Southern California. Thank you to all who stop by and read our posts.  (We did find out that “Immortal -The Band” dominates the images on Google.)

Macy Thanksgiving Day Parade – The End of Tradition 2018

For many years the Macy’s Day Parade had been our family tradition, where we all gather to watch the parades and enjoy the experience.

The last few years though, we have seen a change.  Who was the genius who decided to start the TV coverage with song routines from Broadway Shows?   This might be of interest to New Yorkers, but to anyone else it total BS.  To the children it’s like going on long trip by car and one of them has to pee, they start asking “When are we going to stop?  I have to go to the bathroom” over and over until we stop. When the Broadway routines start the children start saying “When is this going to be over?  We want to tee the parade!”.  Several adults chimed in too this year.  We all agreed last year if this is part of the TV viewing then this will be the end of a family tradition and we can just as easy take a long car trip.

This year the TV presentation was one LONG commercial; from the second it started to the second it ended.  First we have the Broadway Play commercials for the various plays.  But this year was special.  Yes folks, this year to some we had a controversy.  At the end of the Prom Play two women kissed.  It was not a short kiss, like is passing, it was fairly long and a bit passionate.  We smiled and though great, finally they are bold enough to show what life is really about. But to the billions of conservative families all over the world we could feel the horror of the parents when the children all said “Mommy!  You told us that girls never kiss girls!  Mom!  You lied to us!”  Nothing the parents could say would wipe the image out of the children’s minds and later when guests arrive to enjoy dinner, the children would greet them with “Did you see the two girls kissing?” The parents knew that this would be an ongoing for a very long time.  Todays news has some people pissed off  and others happy that this was included.  (We are happy)

After the Broadway Play commercials and in watching the parade we noticed that every float had some obscure singer on the float promoting their latest song release and lip syncing badly as the song blasted out.  Some of our children even noticed that the words did not match the mouth and we all laughed.  True there were two notables singing. Early in the parade Kelly Clarkson was on a float and Diana Ross later on.  All these years we though Diana was six feet under.  So at least we were informed she was alive and “well”.   Diana at first did not have a microphone in her hand and wasn’t singing even though her song was blasting out.  Then she started lip syncing but her hair was being flipped over her face so we could only see her lips moving.

Of course not only did every singer get in a commercial, but the sponsor of every float got a full minute commercial about their product line.  Then of course the TV station (NBC) had to do their official commercials along with everything else.  We remembered a time when the parade was commercial free and the entire event was aimed at families, but that must have been in a place far, far, away and in s different dimension.  Moving on there were commercial free bands from all over the country.  These were the only participants that were commercial free.  We always look for the balloons of various characters that of course had promotions going on, but we mentally tuned them out and enjoyed seeing the traditional characters and which ones were new.  Finally we saw Santa off in the distance and we knew the torture would soon be over.  When the announcer, said “And here is Santa arriving”, click when the remote and we were done.  By the way, we noticed that the announcers these days we usually people from early morning TV shows.  There was a time when “real stars” from TV did the TV announcing but now, all they do is sit there and read commercial scripts.

We made a point of watching the “live” broadcast, and there was only one in our area on NBC. There were years when there were multiple, but not this year which might indicate that the popularity was waning.  We did notice that later in the day several channels were rerunning the parade and we wondered if the “Girl kiss” was edited out.”

So now our tradition has been whittled down to one parade.  That is the New Years Day Rose Parade that does not have Broadway Play promotions as of last year, and basically commercial free.  It’s okay with us that the float sponsors get talked about, because there is usually a story about each one.  The spectators are another story because the “true blue” ones usually camp overnight on the parade route or near as they can get and they usually get interviewed by roving reporters.  Everyone is welcome at the Rose Parade.

We wish all of our followers had a happy holiday and enjoyed Black Friday Shopping.  We will wait with excitement to see what you will be sending us later in the season (Joke).  We hope you make a point to donate some of that cash that you saved to various charity organizations.  Ours this year is to the forest fire victims that lost everything.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank everyone who voted in the USA mid-term election and to those outside of the USA thank you for taking the time to come to the USA and vote (Joke for Donnie).  Have a safe weekend and hope to see you soon.  By the way, we once attended the Pasadena Do Dah Parade and that at that time was held on Thanksgiving.  We rented a Winnebago and parked right on the parade route.  We had a blast.

Quit Smoking the Easy Way – Our Experience

xsmoking

***** If you are anywhere in the San Francisco Bay Area where air is unhealthy because of the smoke in the air from the fires, and you smoke, please consider quitting because if you combine the two, your asking for bad times ahead.

I am happy to report that this coming January marks 6 years since I last smoked a cigarette. An accomplishment I am very proud of and I am 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.
I found that when I decided to quit, I created the intention to quit smoking, and focused on the task at hand the solutions came my way quickly.

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

First I met a doctor that had organized a group of folks that under her supervision had quit smoking using a medication named Wellbutrin. 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. I found that I had a reaction to taking the second pill and the doctor said to just stay with the one a day. Within 10 days I was at 3 cigarettes a day and seemed to get stuck at three. (Ask your doctor about a class or a recommendation)

Then one day I was on my Facebook page when I saw a symbol on the right side that was a cigarette with a red crossed “X” over it. I stared at the symbol because I never click on those “pages you need to visit” symbols, but I went with a gut feeling and clicked on it. I 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. I 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 me was to point out that all the thoughts about why I 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. I found the tough part was about 2-3 weeks later when I felt an urge for a cigarette when a situation occurred that when I was smoking, would smoke a cigarette. I 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. (They rarel do) My though was “I did not quit smoking to go right back to it!” So what I did was I immediately noticed the situation that was causing the urge and then stopped what I was doing. I sat down and started a simple meditation where I focused on my in and out breath knowing that the urge would pass in about 20 seconds. Sure enough, it did and the next time the same situation came up the urge was non-existent. I did this ever time I 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

Click here for a link to Insight Meditation Center Redwood City California

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.

Click here for Google Link

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”.

NOTHING is better than a smoke free environment!”

California Fires – Camp (Northern) & Woosley Fires (Southern)

We are in the San Fransisco Bay area and the air has been wavering between good, moderate, and unhealthy for a week because of the smoke from the Camp Fire.  We can deal with this because folks, there are 200+ people still missing and 44 people dead.  There are people still being evacuated because high winds are pushing these fires all over the place.   Southern California down near San Diego has high winds and high fire warning and we pray no fires start down there.

The town of Paradise was basically wiped out by the Camp Fire.  Stories of people leaving Paradise and stories of heroes are on our local news hourly.  The Weather Channel is now carrying the story full time.  Personally when we see interviews of the people who lost everything its down right heartbreaking.  Yes they survived, but there are many still looking for loved ones and the horror of people leaving Paradise during the fire, driving down traffic clogged roads.  One lady said she was in her car and the taillights of the car in front of her were melting and she was starting to panic when her door opened and a firefighter picked he up and carried her to a firetruck, covered her with a blanket, and said “You are okay now.”.  Folks these guys are amazing and there are thousands from states as far a Georgia that have come to help with the fires.

When this first started and we heard about the town of Paradise we immediately though about our friends that live in Paradise.  I tried to call Marty, no answer.  I then tried to message, him, no answer so I emailed him and prayed that Marty and his family we safe.  About two hours later Marty responded to the email and he said they got out early and were now at his brothers house in Modesto.  (We closed our eyes and thanked God, in fact we gave God a high 5). Marty does not know the state of his house, so he is checking everything possible.  There were some houses that did survive the fire, but only 10%.

Then there is the Woosley Fire in and around Malibu that is still roaring though the hills and actually burned all the was to the ocean which is rare.  When the winds start blowing the flames move so fast that trees actually explode and the dry grass creates a path.

All across the state Californians are coming together and donating goods to help these people.  The Salvation Army is taking in donations.  Below is a link on the Kron4 Radio Station site listing where you can help the Camp Fire people:

Camp_Fire_Donation_List

Please join us in praying for all the people already involved and the people who are in the path of these fires.

It is being reported that both of these fires may have started by power companies that had equipment issues.  PG&E for the Camp Fire and they had a equipment failure 15 minutes before the Camp Fire started AND in the almost exact location as to where the fire started.  PG&E is investigating (Yeah sure).  The other company for the Woosley Fire is The Edison company, that had a equipment failure.

We thank all the people from near and far that are fighting these fires and we pray that they stay safe as possible.

We have nothing else to report at this time.

Expedition Unknown – Search for the Afterlife (Final); Crossing Over

We must say that Josh has some big Kaunas to drink that  Ayahuasca Drink thinking it will take him to the afterlife.  It did take him where his conscious mind wanted to take him, but afterlife?  We don’t think so.  He admitted that he felt terror and joy at the same time. The look on his face was terror and he sure looked shaken.   Its a drug, like a zillion other mind changing drugs.  The shaman had him participate starting with picking the contents of the drink.  All hype if you ask us.  So he drank the drink and his experience lasted 8 hours.  The shamans also drank it but they are probably used to it. Josh said he felt a tightness and upset stomach. After an hour he started seeing colors and felt like he was leaving his body.  Beautiful and horrible at the same time.  Sounds like a LSD trip, not that we would know, but have heard it described.  He said he felt like had been gone for years.  Intense?  Yes.  He said he would never do it again. He did look wasted when it was all over.

 

Then he went to the island of Java to investigate Buddhism at the largest Buddhist temple on earth.  He got there on Buddha’s Birthday.  In Buddhism birth and death are the same thing.  Buddhists can attain the trip to the afterlife through meditation.  The party was awesome.  There were thousands of followers. They let go lanterns that floated up into the sky.  Just let go, it’s so simple.

The Josh went to the Queen Mary docked in Long-beach, CA.  They went looking for ghosts and Josh is very good at doing this.  He has done many shows where they went looking for ghosts and this one was just as good.  we have been on the Queen Mary and it’s awesome place to visit, but we weren’t looking for ghosts.  His thought process was that ghosts are souls who did not or could not let go.  There are specific places on the ship that have reported sightings, so off they went.  They has some special equipment that could possible highlight a ghost. They talked to ghosts and had they turn on and off some flashlights.  They saw a stick figure that might have been a ghost that was turning on the flashlight.  These shows always amaze us and the Josh guys do a great job filing this stuff.

It’s our opinion that if the afterlife exists it all about what you believe.  You think you die and go to heaven, then when you die you go to heaven.  Since we experienced a Near Death Experience (NDE) like the other people that were interviewed we have been to the afterlife, that we call “The other side”.  And we believe that after some time we are reincarnated to another life.  We were once told by a physic that when we are on the “other side” we go visit our friends in heaven and tease them and compare stories.  So folks, Josh did a great job in showing various ways to get to the after life, but drugs would not be advised by us.  The Buddhist meditation way is how we how get there these days.  There are several meditations specifically designed to get there and if you can focus deeply, then you can get there also. It’s a really beautiful place and we get many answers over there.  (We do not believe in any other place like hell)

We have nothing else to report at this time except we highly recommend meditations that use sound “hz” along with music.  There is a number that proceeds the “Hz”, and each number has various healing qualities.  Like “432Hz” | Powerful Positive Energy.   We use the meditation videos on YouTube.  When we download one it automatically posts to Twitter, so if you follow us there then you will see the link.

Thank you everyone who follows us and subscribes to our posts.  Namaste to all. Peace !

Expedition Unknown – Search for the Afterlife (Part 3); Edge of Existence Review

Continuing with Josh Gates series on the “Search for the Afterlife” this week was part 3 and the subject matter was Exorcism,  Russian eternal like experiments, and investigation of the Indonesian Tribe called The Torajan.  Then the episode after this one was “After the Search” which is a follow up to the previous episode and included a preview of next weeks episodes.

The episode open with a follow up from last week of the results of the exorcism and of course the “devil” inside the guy was successfully removed by the priest.  Lots of gyrations but in the end it was gone.  The only religion that we know about that does exorcism is the Catholic.  There may be others, but this is our opinion on the Catholic exorcism.  Because it’s a religious process then the only way a “devil” can get inside a follower is a product of the Catholic Religion.  The Vatican does not take these lightly, but it does authorize the event, so this says that the religion creates the problem so it takes responsibility for “fixing” it.

The next subject was how the Russians are experimenting with eternal like creation.  They have several bodies and brains in a frozen state (-320) in a vat so that when science can bring these back to life they can put the brains in robot or a different body and the frozen bodies can be returned to life.  They had Josh walk around with a device fitted to his head that recorded his every movement throughout the day.  It looked like he was wearing curlers connected together with wires and gadgets.  Their point was the data can be down loaded in the future into a robot that will use the data to make a “new Josh” in the future. Then there was a guys on the follow up show that had a name for this, but we did not care what it was because it sound like a huge scam to bilk people into a false sense of the future, which by the was is an illusion.  The guy had run for California Governor and President of the US.  He also had an implant in his hand that downloads his “serial number” and other information into a phone.  His point is he wants to bring this “future” technology to the attention of people.  When asked how this effects humanity?  He says its an enhancement to mankind and that we were meant to live forever.  Our response is “BS”.  It isn’t the body that matters, it’s the soul.  The minute a person dies the soul leaves the body because the body is only a vessel to carry the soul and assist the soul in it’s path through communication.  Freeze the body for future defrosting and you will have a bunch of soulless robots running around bouncing off walls.  No folks, this is not where we wish to end up because we know that there is an afterlife and we will come back at a later date.  Why people would do something like this might be because they are afraid of death?  Or they hid a bunch of money from the family and want to come back and get it?  Or the family said “look do this and die now (calming fear) and you can come back in 5050.  If the planet is still here then we will have a party.” “In the mean time where did you put your will?”  This is our project of course.

Then the next subject was an Indonesian tribe named “Torajan”(Sp) that believes the spirit stays in the body when someone dies so they mummify the body and bring the “body” into the house and treat them like they are still alive. They talk to then each day, they offer them food, and they change their cloths.  Then at a later date when the spirit leaves the throw a week long funeral with all kinds of events and they make a sculpture of the person, which will be placed at the actual burial site along with the body in a coffin that goes into a cave that has about a zillion  other bodies.  There seems to be some “loop-holes” in this like if the family could not afford the expensive funeral the body might remain with them forever, yes, forever.   We wonder how many families have moved to a new home and forgot to take the bodies with them accidentally on purpose?  Does the next person who bought the house inherit the bodies or do they send them to the cave without a funeral?

The next subject was only touched on and a full blown follow up with be in next weeks show.  Josh went to Peru and shamans prepared a liquid (Drug) for Josh to drink.   Josh had to fast for two weeks prior and no sex.  This reason is that if he did not do the proper procedures he might not come back from drinking the drug.  The drugs purpose is to take you to your afterlife.  Josh did say that after it was over his body purged itself from both ends for a few days. So this event will be on next weeks show in detail along with a ghost hunt on the Queen Mary that is docked in Long Beach.  Josh is great at his ghost investigation so we are looking forward to this.

Of course there was more and overall this week was good and we like how Josh is investigating all kinds of ways to get to the solution of looking for and afterlife.  We believe on the afterlife but it all boils down to what you believe.  If you believe the afterlife is swimming wit whales, then thats all yours.  You might believe that this is the only life we get and once we are six foot under, cremated, or mummified then that it. Done!  If you are hanging around in a vat waiting to be defrosted you need to know that your soul has moved on and might come back a few thousand years from now and be the one to hit your defrost button on the body sized micro-wave  to bring your body back.  Interesting concept huh?  We call this Karma.

We have nothing else to report except that we like this series because it makes up think about other ways people believe in life and death.

Thanks to all our followers, subscribers, friends, ghosts, and souls just stopping by for a quick read.

If your a ghost stopping by then we must tell you that God loves you and you will be welcomed in his/her realm.  Just go to the light off in the distance with many blessings and Peace be with you.  We might even see you when we get there and we can hang out.  Of course if you end up in heaven, then we can only come there for a visit and we need to get a heavenly passport to get through the pearly gates.  We know this because we have a bunch of friends in Heaven and we visit them often and joke around.
