A sweep of the veranda

AS I PROMISED yesterday, here’s another video I discovered resting in a rarely visited corner of my desktop computer. There are quite a few.

I don’t know how old this is. It’s not within the past few years because I spot some plants that have been gone for a long, long time.

Note that I was unconsciously whistling during part of the video. Funny how people do that. My child bride is putting some supplement on the plants.

She didn’t know I was taping her.

Stay tuned for more.

I RARELY show myself here, so when I found this old video hidden in my desktop computer this morning, I decided to make an exception.

My child bride is the camera mistress, and I think the video was taken in 2008 or 2009. The lack of greenery on the right side is a clue. That entire area is now full of plants. You cannot see the dirt, but you can see tons of aloe vera.

Home movies. Just like the Olden Days. I found quite a pile in that computer corner, so expect a few more in upcoming days.


Visiting another world

BREAKING BAD was one of the best series ever to appear on television.

This is my favorite scene.

It’s Jesse Pinkman taking his first dose of heroin. I became familiar with drugs during the period 1995 to 2000, the time between the failure of my second marriage and my move to Mexico.

I’ve never taken heroin and never will. I’ve never used a needle and never will. I doubt I will ever use an illegal drug again. The drugs I took during that period are not addictive: psilocybin, LSD, ayahuasca, San Pedro cactus and ecstasy.

I recommend them all to you with some reservations, and I recommend that you never do them alone (exception: ecstasy). Have a sidekick with you who’s got his feet on the ground because things can get weird.

Best at night. Best with music.

What stuck me about the above scene is that it’s extremely realistic. Ecstasy won’t do this to you, but the others can and far more. And whoever directed the scene, or perhaps the actor added it, has first-hand experience. Notice Jesse clutching his heart, something  I have done.
