Light up, marijuana fights Alzheimers


Talk about good news for aging boomers.
Smoking marijuana could actually keep your brain young by reducing inflammation and even stimulating the formation of new brain cells.

Research by a team at Ohio State University suggests that the development of a legal drug that contains certain properties similar to those in marijuana might help prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer's disease.

Any new drug's properties would resemble those of tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, the main psychoactive substance in the cannabis plant, but would not share its high-producing effects.

When asked if people could smoke marijuana to prevent Alzheimer's disease if the disease is in their family?

Gary Wenk the principal investigator on the research replied: We're not saying that, but it might actually work.
Good enough for me.

Where the hell did I leave the papers?

Boys are not allowed to hit girls

Don't do much anymore except make breakfast for one of my grandkids, a seven year old boy, walking him to school, picking him up and then having philosophical conversations about his day. Living in the basement of my daughter's house, I really try, to not interfere with their parenting, but what the hell, right now he spends as much time with me during the week, than he does with them.

The other day my daughter who came home early and ended up eavesdropping on our conversation about when to fight and when to walk away. Apparently it was one of those days in the school yard.

"Look, it is really simple" I started, "there are only two rules about fighting.The first rule is, you don't start the fight, but if a boy hits you, hit him back, as hard and as fast as you can and don't stop until he runs away." He liked that part and demonstated how he would punch. "In other other words," I continued "you will only be in trouble if you started the …
