something new and freaky...

I ran across this article about a week ago. This goes far beyond hybridization and shows our advancing mastery of manipulating genes.

the first plant in the world that produces its own visible light. The developers "inserted the genes responsible for causing marine bacteria to glow". Practical applications currently don't include a self-lit grow room :))))))

Get Right Help/Tip #1

Ask yourself "why" our 16th President,
Abraham Lincoln is Honored with his
picture on the modest $5.00 (five)
dollar bill and...on our meekest coin,
$0.01, the cent?

Why? Because he was...right!

San Miguel De Allende

So, the magazine Conde Nast just voted San Miguel De Allende the world's best city. I remember that's the place John Dawson (Marmaduke) retired and spent his last days. Also, apparently Neal Cassady passed away there as well. Interesting, might be worth checking out someday...

And so there we were...

The Moon and the Sun came and went
for hundreds of days, again.
It served as proof that somethings
never change...
like my Grand and
Festive Supplications, xo's!

In remembering...
(with awesome appreciation)all
the blessings and miracles it has
brought forth my way. My grateful
heart and soul rejoices.

In observing my wonderful and yet so
profound list of gifts there as read
between the lines there was Bob Weir and
great many others indeed, I pondered
that last night after I finished my
work. Since 10:16:01 pm struck the clock
he had given so many, so many so much.
It had indeed seen me though, and rested
my weary soul, for free. Darkest hour

I went to kneel in the place I
always do.

In sweet supplication, I told Jesus I
would try and and show him, so many things
the things, Bobby had done. My thoughts
were rapid in succession and quite a
task, to be sure.

Through the looking glass in my Eyes;
I saw the best of so many shining like
stars in sky. I saw inspiration and it
indeed, moved me brightly, xo.

I saw messages scrolling in dear..
lovingkindness, the lion and lamb;
there for the show. I saw a crowded
room filled with nothing but joy as
I saw alone filled with my own. I
saw a grave keeping time as waters
hugged the river's side. I saw Jesus
smile at me; as held my broken-heart
in my hand now patched with bandaids
from all over the land. I heard the
love of so many- again and again...
sher'd perfectly, so on the mend, xo.

I saw Bob's smile from a peaceful trance
chatting with others in a maliceless stance.

I called upon My Jesus to ask a blessing;
for the one and only... Mr. Bob Weir!
I said unto him in my Spirit that I loved
a year of 10:16:01, it had the ticket to
take care of 1 second everyday. And it was
awesome appreciation, I thanked him. Now!
Now may ask a minute for him...
A whole sixty seconds for rapture, excellence,
Rock-n-Roll, guitars, friendship and
freedom 6 items to truly bless everyone.
A minute at 10:47 PM with the time between
10:16:01 and then a dedicated time in which
to- "GET RIGHT", yeah, yeah, yeah...
30 minutes and 59 seconds OR
1,859 seconds to reflect, change, embrace,
tune-up, however-whatever, "Get Right".

Sat in quite hope, stunned of what I had
done. Quickly thinking of sheer-delight,
Knowing it so, so, so much more than just
a pleasant gesture, it was a Universal Deal.
If you're with me now, xo.

Then---he agreed! He said it was to be a birthday
gift and I agreed. The smiling Jesus touched
the Hands of Time and Blessed the minute 10:47 PM
and he vowed a infinite blessing for the...
time between...
10:16:01PM and 10:47:59PM

Every Night @ 10:47 PM is a beacon you can
use to...
"Get Right"
A whole sixty seconds for rapture, excellence,
Rock-n-Roll, guitars, friendship and
freedom -6 items to truly bless everyone.

Practice Makes Perfect!

Happy Birthday Bobby,
Happy Birthday from
ALL of the BIG ALL-0f-US!
Here, There and Everywhere!
You are so loved, xo!

10:47 PM is mythically in set in stone!
as is -> To get right,!

Doubles only come once a decade!
Every goodness to you, everyday!
