What are the Blood Mines of Boulder? 

Boulder, CO?

Blood Mines of Boulder

Yep, Boulder, CO

Made fake blood from rocks, water and air.  Turns out you CAN get blood from stone, with some sugar and lots of little biological helpers.  Never made it past phase II trials though. sad

Stretching it a bit, it sounds like police work?

Not really, although the police did benefit from the companies efforts.  Boulder County Sheriff now reside in the building the company built as the the first manuf. site.  I've contemplated dropping by to see if they do tours of the facility.

But that might be kinda awkward...

Just keep reminding yourself like my old friend did when he started to think about having a smoke.   What they heck?  Why would I want a smoke?  I'm a non smoker.

You will be so much better off without smoking.  After awhile you won't even think about it anymore.  In a couple weeks, go smell your clothes that you haven't washed since you quit that are hanging around.  If you have some that you are aware of, go put them together somewhere in a closet.  When you smell that, understand that's how you smelled around people who don't smoke.

Onward on the mission.  PS:  my son's ex father in law is in stage 4 lung cancer.  Smoker.

Back when I was on active duty I smoked around a pack and a half a day along with dipping about a can of day.  Eventually I "quit" smoking and just dipped.  Dipped because it was easier to dip indoors than smoke most of the time.  Eventually a girlfriend told me to quit dipping or she would leave.  I quit but then started back to smoking.

Eventually I quit smoking, with the exception of the occasional cigar.  Was that way for I don't know for how long until this past weekend.  Had a few things happen that just stressed me out and the fact that cigarettes are only $1.50 or so a pack, I've started back up again.

^"Had a few things happen that just stressed me out and the fact that cigarettes are only $1.50 or so a pack, I've started back up again."

Well *expletive deleted*ck that *expletive deleted*it.  Dayam.  Don't know what to tell you except stop now.  Hope I don't have that happen.

Just collected some more smoking stuff.  A dozen BIC lighters, probably more scattered around elsewhere.  A "spark suppressor," a plastic dish I held under my chin when drawing on a butt to prevent sparks from burning holes in my clothes.  Three more ashtrays and a bunch of snuffers.  These are small ceramic cylinders with holes into which you put the burning cig to put it out.  Kind of look like porcelain standoff insulators.  Got one molded into a skull shape, too.  Standoff insulators were common in the old days when electricity was real electricity, not just 5 measly piddly little volts.

Next apartment neighbor smokes, now I'm smelling that.

Discovered another "trigger" link-up.  Hung up the phone after a long conversation, started to look for a pack.  Jeeze, does that ever stop?  I'm glad I started treating that like a game, anticipating such moments, but missed predicting that one.

The word "infringed" has no meaning any more. Or maybe it's the word "not."   I can't decide which.

Not a bump.  Just a report.  Tonight at 7:30 will be exactly two weeks without a cigarette.  Even had a great steak dinner with my two sons last Sunday without a trace of craving or desire for a cigarette, but I'm still finding activities where I think I want one.  I guess it will take a while for me to burn up all of those little kinds of incidents.

I think I'm a little more sensitized to allergens now.  Definitely more sensitive to smells, too, which is kind of a pain in the patootie.

Weight 196.0.  Guess I can start working on that, now.

CELERY TIME !

You're doing well, Terry.  Keep it up, you won't regret it.

Some days even my lucky rocketship underpants won't help.


Bring me my Broadsword and a clear understanding.
Get up to the roundhouse on the cliff-top standing.
Take women and children and bed them down.
Bless with a hard heart those that stand with me.
Bless the women and children who firm our hands.
Put our backs to the north wind.
Hold fast by the river.
Sweet memories to drive us on for the motherland.
