It's their golden birthday today! Bowler and Brisco are six on the sixth. As always, it was a fun time trying to get them to pose nicely in their Garfield party hats. It's hard enough with one cat, but two can be next to impossible. The first two pictures are from when I trapped them in the bathroom--I figured they couldn't escape and I'd get some nice shots. But it was too close to lunch time and they were freaking out. The rest are after their tummies were full, and they actually didn't mind that there was cardboard on their heads and elastic under their chins.
Pop the bubble you call a reality and wake up to the fact that drinking doesn't always mean alcoholism and smoking drugs doesn't always mean crippling addiction. Many more people than you could ever realize do drugs without you even knowing.
It just drives me nuts that you guys always think we're against pot because we think it's all dangerous and addictive and "ruins your life." If you had read my book which has been online for years, and any of my thousands of comments, you would know all about how the only people I knew in college who smoked pot were my roommate and her friends, who were all nice, studious, well-dressed young ladies (who went to church, even), and my brother-in-law, who was a straight A Eagle Scout! But that makes it WORSE that they smoked pot, because they of ALL people should have known better. Their parents would have killed them if they had found out, and they were lucky they never got caught by the police! But they all STOPPED smoking pot after they graduated. They GREW UP. They got good jobs, raised families, and are all nice, decent citizens--grandparents, even. Smoking pot was just an immature thing they did in college out of peer pressure, afraid they'd be called a goody goody.
But can't you see my point?? Yes I know that many nice, successful people smoke or smoked pot. But that makes it WORSE. Because they of ALL people should know better! They set a terrible example and go against everything that most parents try to teach their kids about drugs and life! And what are parents supposed to tell their kids? "Okay Suzie, you go out and get high all you wish, because there are nice, successful, productive people who smoke pot, and that makes it okay! And who cares if you get busted? Just tell the judge that you get good grades and that people like Carl Sagan and President Obama smoked pot, and you'll be sure to be set free!" IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY! Don't you get it? Again, what parent would EVER raise their kids to think it is EVER okay to smoke pot--at any age?? Most parents try to raise their kids with morals, values and common sense to know that this is wrong and just plain immature.
And I know many of these same parents who would NEVER smoke pot because "drugs are bad" think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol. But alcohol is a drug! A casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren't breaking the law! Yet alcohol is promoted and glorified everywhere you turn, and people think it is okay because it is legal. I used to talk to a guy online who was the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet; he and his wife had four beautiful kids, they were active in their church, and just so nice. They would NEVER smoke pot. Heaven's no. But he told me once that he would bring his wife wine and cheese for a romantic evening. And when I tried to explain to him that alcohol is a drug, and that this is no different than a casual pot smoker lighting up to get high and buzzed, he just couldn't understand it. I even brought up about the health risks of alcohol, but it was like talking to a wall. We will NEVER get the pot smokers to understand why it's wrong and immature to use mind-altering drugs recreationally, as long as nice, decent people like that couple think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol recreationally. And there are MILLIONS of people just like them in the world. Nice, decent, successful people who would NEVER smoke pot, yet they think nothing of using alcohol--the guys feel they have to drink beer to be a man, the women have to sip their "fine wine" to be social and romantic, etc. It shouldn't be that way! People need to grow up and set an example!
And I have explained over and over about how I am a convert to the Mormon church and we have what we believe to be direct revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. We are taught the moral and physical reasons to avoid using these things. This HELPS us. It is good to understand why we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs like alcohol or marijuana to have "fun". That is not what TRUE fun is! But you shouldn't have to be Mormon or even religious to know this. It is just common sense! My whole point is that a grown adult should be WELL PAST the age where they would want to use a mind-altering drug recreationally.
Oh it just drives me nuts that you guys always accuse me of thinking that anybody who smokes pot is addicted and some kind of loser bum, and that anybody who drinks alcohol is a raging alcoholic. NOBODY THINKS THAT. I have explained over and over that if someone told me they had a few sips of wine at a wedding once every five years, I would be saying the same thing! I would have more sympathy for a raging alcoholic than a casual drinker! At least the alcoholic has an excuse; they are addicted and hopefully will get help. But casual drinkers, just like casual pot smokers, have no excuse. They can't even see why it is wrong and just plain immature to use mind-altering drugs recreationally. Can't you see my point?
Again, this is why I have been forced to continue speaking up against pot and alcohol all these years, is because of comments like yours. And I must receive them 50 times a day. It is just so frustrating! I never even THOUGHT about pot before all this. But boy have you guys opened my eyes. Now I realize we all need to speak up against pot AND alcohol even MORE, just to EDUCATE you guys! And you think that WE need to be educated! That's why we need to educate YOU!

I was surfing eBay looking at Liddle Kiddle auctions and came across this poor girl; her vinyl has turned green over the years, as is common with many of these 60's dolls. The green is caused by the metal wires inside the doll which may have rusted, or sometimes snaps on the clothing that react with the vinyl, or even a fungus. I have numerous Kiddles that have green spots, but she is one of the worst I've seen--it looks like she is wearing a green jumpsuit! This doll is Florence Niddle, the "nurse" from the series. I hope someone adopts her and tries to clean her up! For reference, I have included a picture of her mint in the package, so you can see what she is SUPPOSED to look like. Isn't she adorable? This is an example of what I saw on the toy shelves as a little girl.

And you guys ALWAYS tell me about how God put marijuana on the Earth, blah blah blah. I have said over and over that just because He put marijuana on the Earth doesn't mean He wants us to light up a joint, smoke it and get high! And if you guys are all so dang religious, talking about God all the time, then you of ALL people should know better than to use drug. A religion is supposed to teach people to AVOID drugs, not encourage them to light up a joint, smoke it and get high! Otherwise, what is a religion FOR? Heck, I wasn't even religious in high school or college and I sure never smoked pot. Nobody ever offered it to me or talked about it to me or anything! And I was a teen in the 70s! Same for my husband!
And then after college I joined the Mormon church where we have direct revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. We are taught the moral and physical reasons to avoid using these things. This HELPS us. It FREES us. What do you want me to do, tell God he is wrong and drop out of my church?
And it makes me furious that you people always say that if I haven't tried pot, I can't possibly speak up against it! You said that "everything I have heard about pot is second hand information." I have said over and over that one of the main reasons I have been forced to continue speaking up against pot is because you guys always accuse me of thinking it is dangerous and addictive and kills people. NOBODY THINKS THAT! Doesn't it even OCCUR to you that we are against it because it's a mind-altering drug?? Pot smokers ADMIT to us all the time online that they use it to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax, have "fun", etc. We BELIEVE them when they tell us why they use it and how it affects them! And that is why we are against it! That is what makes it wrong! We shouldn't use mind-altering drugs for these reasons!!
And you all think that if only I would TRY pot, I'd see how "fun" it is. I have said over and over that if I tried it, I'm sure I would enjoy it! Of course it would be "fun"! I totally BELIEVE you guys when you tell me why you use it and how it affects you! But that is why I am against it! That is what makes it wrong! Can't you see that???
Comments like yours only make me see how much we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever. Again, it is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! Do we really want people like you walking around actually USING mind-altering drugs?? Heaven's no.
And then this person tells me:
And then you bring up about how "prescription drugs are more dangerous than marijuana"??? AAARGGHHHHH! First of all, I thought marijuana wasn't dangerous at all! You guys are always telling me that marijuana is so SAFE. So which is it? Is it dangerous or totally safe?? And secondly, you guys ALWAYS think that I am against pot because I think it is so dangerous and deadly and "ruins your life." NOBODY THINKS THAT! Doesn't it even OCCUR to you idiots that we are against pot because it's a mind-altering drug???? Are you that immoral and immature that you can't even see why this is wrong?? GROW UP!
I will use your comments in my upcoming blogs and videos to show why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES. Again, it is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! LIKE YOU! I hope the world sees your comments. They prove my point EXACTLY.
Cindy, I think you need to step back and look at this campaign you are on to keep cannabis illegal. You obviously have NO education of anything cannabis related. The human body already has cannabinoids in it so cannabis is a natural fit to the human system. Lots of people use it for the CBD's that help cure cancers, stop convolutions in little kids, pain and so on. CBD's are non Psychoactive and does not get you high. THC is the psychoactive part that helps with the mind and the other aspects that CBDs don't reach. Some people need the THC part to help take their mind off major pains or other traumas. It helps slow racing thoughts in people with Bi polar and other mental conditions. It helps stimulate appetites, helps people sleep if smoking an Indica, helps people with social anxiety to be able to go out in public and live a semi normal life. I can go on for days about the positive things Cannabis does for us. Are you against alcohol like you are cannabis?? Just know this, Cannabis has never killed one person every!! Please read up on stuff and see that it's not all bad and has many benefits. It is becoming legal in many states so learn about it instead of living life with blinders on stuck in the Reagan era.......
Bahahahahaha I can bring you some trolls if you like. That just shows you are am unintelligent waste of space. How the f**k old are you?? Playing with dolls still. Lmfao!!! Enjoy that pathetic life of yours... Talk about creepy...
You an ignorant person thats for sure. Your work is useless just like you seem to be. Please do us a favor and don't have kids. We don't need more idiots like you wasting space on this planet. Keep up the creepy videos! Even my 8 year old daughter thinks your creepy so maybe that should tell you something about your life.Enjoy fighting your win less battle.
Who are you to stop anyone from anything?? I'm a grown man with a big family. You get hate mail and threats because you are threatening peoples lives with this bullsh*t. Why don't you go after the drinkers that kill innocent people daily???? You don't understand what you are really doing and it's sad because you feel your life is the only one that matters so lets mess everyone elses life up. Would you be upset if they banned dolls and if you get caught with a doll it is burned and you are locked up, for a toy?!?!?! Well the same thing with cannabis. You are putting innocent people in jail over a plant. You read that? A PLANT! Now how fair is that? I can see if it was man made but it's not. There is nothing added and no one goes out and kills people on cannabis. I kinda feel you are special with a learning disability. The dolls don't help with your case by the way. I never threatened you so you can drop that bullsh*t right now. You seem to think anyone not on your side as a threat. You need to pop your bubble and realize it's ok not to like something someone may have done but to try to ruin lives over it is a plain out threat to us cannabis users. Check yourself before running your mouth on your nonsense. stick to dolls.
Oh okay, I will speak up against alcohol. I never thought of that before. Thanks for helping me see the light.

Pot should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES. I never used to even care if it were legal or not, before I started talking to pot smokers online. But boy have they opened my eyes!
And then this article talks about "regulating" marijuana. Regulating it for who? ADULTS? Adults are the ones who should know better and not smoke pot!! What a thing to do.
Well, I was surprised enough when I saw this article about one of the Duggar girls drinking alcohol. I thought they were staunch Christians? They have a picture of the Bible AND booze? A religion is supposed to teach people to AVOID using mind-altering drugs like alcohol! Otherwise, what is a religion for?
And of course we shouldn't drink while pregnant! We shouldn't drink at all! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right. And afterall I have written over the years about why we shouldn't use alcohol, this article says it's okay to have "a celebratory glass" at a holiday or birthday party? We will NEVER get the pot smokers to understand why it is wrong and immature to use drugs, as long as people use alcohol! Their number one excuse is "Pot is safer than alcohol". I tell them over and over that we shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol!
