How do I sue for plagiarism??
Some blokes have used my exact title and put it on some nickleodeon tv station

Maybe if I bring these bastards to court...all the publicity will bring attention, then my fifteen minutes of fame and subsequent notoriety about teachers who enjoy a little herb at night to relax and bring down their blood pressure!!

" The young pot-dealer is played by Josh Peck, who just months ago was delighting hundreds of thousands of small children as a rubber-faced jokester on Nickelodeon’s teen comedy "Drake and Josh." One of his regular pothead customers is ..."

Then I did another search and look what I found:

"Josh Peck, aka Josh of Drake and Josh, is all growed up and selling the ganj in The Wackness, a Sundance not-quite-darling set in the summer of 1994. He'll be at the Apple Store on Michigan Ave on Thursday with Jonathan Levine, the film's writer and director, to show clips and answer questions.
The movie's a coming-of-age story about a pot dealer (Peck), his crush (Olivia Thirlby), her step-dad and his shrink (Ben Kingsley), the shrink's wife (Famke Jassen), and other people (Mary-Kate Olsen and Method Man). Yes, it's the one where Olsen and Kingsley smooch."

So, do I need to contact Joseph Levine and see if any of my many ideas and adventures were slightly altered to fit the script of this hit show??

Readers and fans of the "Okie Zone" need to help me out with some polite suggestions??
Josh Peck Takes on a Very Different Type of Role in "The Wackness"Josh Peck, one of the stars of Nickelodeon's "Drake & Josh" series, takes on the role of a drug-dealing pot-smoking loner in the coming of age tale, "The Wackness." Written and directed by Jonathan Levine, the R-rated independent film was a hit at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival and marks a real departure from the characters Peck has played on TV and in past feature film"

It is so easy to feel overwhelmed with all the tasks that Angel and I have to do before we go to Oz...We both believe that we have ADD and then we prograstinate...

Now in order to have at least a 6 month visa, my wife has to have a chest x-ray by the government...
I believe that we need to check out www.twitter.com...

and complain about how hard it is be even to be just a tourist in Oz...

,,,oh well, I'll write more to you later...

"Scores greater than 70 indicate neighborhoods where it's possible to get by without owning a car, while scores greater than 90 qualify communities as a "Walker's Paradise.""

http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080717/us_nm/usa_cities_dc

When we go to Mermaid Beach in Oz, we will be in a "walker's Paradise"... we will be walking and riding our bicycles only a few miles down the beach from "Surfer's Paradise"...

We will not be dependent on automobiles! It is our statement against global warming!

Now it's already Sunday July 2oth. My honey and I are finally working on our visas to Oz after so much prograsstination ... (my angel of course doesn't herbalize with the baby due)
it is nice to relax in the beautiful hillbilly country, with the AC working inside my parent in Law's home...

Thank you Leigh Anne, for helping me connect this blog back to the internet universe!!

Prograstination

this is from wickipedia....cept I like to have my own spelling of the word...meaning herbal induced deferment...

"Procrastination is a type of behavior which is characterized by deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite procrastination as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision. [1]
(I worry about getting started and think that we will never make it of here ..Angel already looks like she'll have twins or triplets!! It will be tough for her on a long trip...we need to get out of here before she is 36 weeks ...that is in september...)

For an individual, procrastination may result in stress, a sense of guilt, the loss of personal productivity, the creation of crisis and the disapproval of others for not fulfilling one's responsibilities or commitments. These combined feelings can promote further procrastination. While it is normal for people to procrastinate to some degree, it becomes a problem when it impedes normal functioning. Chronic procrastination may be a sign of an underlying psychological or physiological disorder.

The word itself comes from the Latin word procrastinatus: pro- (forward) and crastinus (of tomorrow). The term's first known appearance was in Edward Hall's Chronicle (The union of the two noble and illustre famelies of Lancestre and Yorke), first published sometime before 1548.[2] The sermon reflected procrastination's connection at the time to task avoidance or delay, volition or will, and sin




I wonder who is reading this now??
The only way I could reach some readers that just happen to do some searches...maybe there is something that hits you to be a regular reader....

Maybe my friend, Tommy Hand, or another friend like Matt will just do a search for for their names....
what search words would work??
that will eventually tune my few readers back to "escape the okie zone"

Maybe they will do a search for Arkansas?? or just "Prograstination"???

My mind often goes paranoic having worries about the mother in law (and she has been such an Ice Queen, typical of a matriarchal mother in law...) I wonder what genes of hers are in Angela?? My wife is an angel and so happy go lucky...she is opposite of her mother in every way except for being beautiful...Diane is continually working from when she gets up to when she retires...Angela is even lazier than moi!!
My ex's couldn't possibly believe that!!

besides being an old stoner...
what will her controlling mind think??
she has aged very well for 57 but it's such a shame that she is so serious and having to constantly...
Imagine if she would finally smoke a doobie when it ever becomes legalized...
both situations are less likely than I write a best seller...

At this point in my life I am still in limbo waiting to get even further out of the comfort zone!!

....Ok "I am a tight ass!!" but that is the only way we can survive and be bums for a year and have the freedom to just concentrate on being parents....
I can't find my blog anymore on the internet...It disappeared again like it did the other night!

The Tour de France is on again...as we rest and relax before we spring into the Oz Zone!! What a big change and further out of the comfort zone!
Some many things to do and I feel overwhelmed! But I realize that if I put it all into baby steps, we can both do it. I was crying again tonight thinking of Buffy but maybe it was from all ths e worries and responsibilities that I will have... I asked for my muse's help because I couldn't do it all by myself......(my muse coincidentally rented the movie "Muse" with Sharon Stone...

The weird thing about my writing lately is that I need to know that it's reaching the "interuniverse" immediately as soon as I put it out on print...it sounds crazy>>> but if I know that it's getting the immediate gratification that others could be reading it within seconds...
I have dreams of my friends and not so friends reading this all in the future...I desire the ultimate connection of having a best seller!...getting enough in royalties to give us a comfortable living for the rest of our lives...so we just concentrate on being parents without financial worries...just living frugally but comfortably....to relax and be happy to finally get comfortable in the new comfort zone...
Please Lord, help my angel and me get our visas tomorrow and straighten out the cobra plan so we can pay for our medical for a few months...maybe with a high deductible ...Lord, help our baby boy be delivered safely and happy!
I know I'm agnostic for all you "believers"...
sometimes when I write down the prayers I feel the power and energy...
so I am a doubting Thomas, but I do want to believe...

in seems that in most of all the women I've been involved in serious relationships, they have had love/hate relationship with their mothers or daughters...
Angel just finally erupted at her mother's controlling desire to get things done
she wants everything ready for our trip to Oz...
I found out later after a bonding session with her father that my new mom in law was in tears
she just wants her daughter to be happy
I think of my past gf's very contentious relationship with her youngest child...

Fortnately my angel's brother lives down the street only two houses over..
We escape to his now bachelor pad to watch some movies and cook a pizza in his girlfriend's oven (she just rented the house next to my angel's home!)
Her dad came over to help mend fences and it was cool to drink her volatile brother's Coors while we smoked some very green home grown....
We weren't sure if it would work but he and I realized how it was working when I conversation drifted to existentialism and how I view God...it was so cool to see my angel look over at us bonding with loving delight...since she loves her father so much, she wants us all to be good friends!!

The next day we picked up her brothers' kids at his new ex's home...we met her new beau (who actually appeared to be a really cool guy,,,,we chatted about Germany since he was a military brat over there!)

It's so nice to herbalize and have a couple of beers watching one of the best Wimbledon finals with the whole new family I have happilly become part of!!

Of course, because of the legality, I have to sneak away to attain that nice euphoric feeling...
If vaporizers became available after pot became legal, there will be no smoke to harm our lungs!!

I noticed that Chickasha Oklahoma visited my blog...Maybe it was my good doubles tennis partner from our ole competitive tennis days, Tommy!
We had some really fun days..It's hard to believe that it over 20 years ago that we started playing so much tennis on hot asphalt of the Okc summers!!


"I go around the corner with my soulmate and see the almost endless view of the Rockies against the red sky from a setting sun and I hear Neville singing Amazing Grace. It was at that point that I really wanted to believe in heaven where hatred, fear, animosity, jealousy don't exist..There is only love...It made me realize how much that I have to enjoy every moment..I have only a few more days of good health and vigor before the new moon... the worst could happen .....someone's gonna put a curse on me and if that don't work then Joe Pete will break my legs or I will mistakenly eat Mema Valetti's poison Manicotti.I'm gonna have to find the Roman Catholic church in Durango and pray for the eternal salvation of my soul.I will also pray that I will lose my creepiness, nerdiness and the current curse that I am under ... I will pray to forget that this fantasy or facade of a chance for fatherhood ever happened...I was very mistakenly conned into this pagan fantasy and really believed that there could be almost heavenly happiness on this earth...I will pray that your curse will be broken."

amazing how I thought this and now a year later, I will be a father in a week!! And now I am in Australia, where I have always wanted to be with the Pacific in my backyard!

This is Newsbuster's philosophy on the evil weed. Hilarious!
















The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy reported last month that a teenager who has been depressed in the past year was more than twice as likely to have used marijuana than teenagers who have not reported being depressed (25 percent compared with 12 percent). The study said marijuana use increased the risk of developing mental disorders by 40 percent. So much for the "harmless" nature of pot.
There are more worrisome statistics still. The 2006 National Survey on Drug Use and Health found that among Americans age 12 and older there were 14.8 million current users of marijuana and 4.2 million Americans classified with dependency or abuse of marijuana. Addiction is a real threat. Another 2006 report found 16.1 percent of drug treatment admissions were for marijuana as the primary drug of abuse. This compares to six percent in 1992.
There surely are multiple reasons to explain the increasing use of this drug. But one reason for the trend is surely its glamorization by Hollywood, which thinks marijuana is a fun-and-games subject.
"Access Hollywood" has breathlessly promoted a new movie called "The Wackness," set in 1994 New York. A young man sells marijuana out of an Italian-ice cart. He starts seeing a therapist, asking him for guidance on dating a young woman. He pays for the therapy sessions with pot.
If the plot seems tiresome, it’s the casting that’s truly saddening. The young pot-dealer is played by Josh Peck, who just months ago was delighting hundreds of thousands of small children as a rubber-faced jokester on Nickelodeon’s teen comedy "Drake and Josh." One of his regular pothead customers is played by Mary-Kate Olsen, half of the famous twins who played the baby sister on the family sitcom "Full House."
Child stars too often go looking for a part to "stretch their range," but that’s code for scraping off any odor of a goody-goody reputation. These actors are doing it by glorifying marijuana.

(It is so awful to glorify this awful weed that caused Mexicans to have superhuman powers when they took jobs away from Texans at the turn of the twentieth century!)

Drug-dealer chic really began with "Weeds," the Showtime pay-cable series starring Mary-Louise Parker as widowed suburban mother/pot dealer Nancy Botwin. The fourth season recently premiered to the delight of TV critics, who love the show’s exposure of suburban hypocrisy. Showtime publicists wrote, with noticeable pride: "Last season, viewers saw Nancy venture from hesitant but determined toe-dipper in the unpredictable waters of drug dealing to confident, full-fledged queen-pin entrepreneur."
They’re proud of the drug-dealing mom as she gains confidence in her "queen-pin" criminality?
The show’s primary hypocrite is the boozy anti-drug crusader Celia Hodes, played by Elizabeth Perkins, who told TV Guide that her character "discovers drugs this year...and she’s like a kid in a candy shop." Perkins is delighted by the bad behavior on the show. "There's just something delicious about watching people misbehave without any sense of conscience."





This is a classic Hollywood outburst. These people love misbehavior, wallow in it, and suggest anyone who would dare take a stand that appears morally upright is undoubtedly just a repressed fraud. It carries an Orwellian echo: Honesty is found in corruption, and moral fervor is a sickness that needs to be vanquished. Morality is immoral.

(the religiously influenced neoconservatives are so scared and threatened with this harmless herb and they love to lump Hollywood with immorality and hippy pinko liberals!)

Perkins displayed more of her debased philosophy on CBS’s "The Early Show" on July 2 in a cozy showcase of CBS-Showtime corporate-cousin synergy. She described her moralizing character as fun to play because she’s "really screwed up and evil." She’s an unstable hypocrite in a bad marriage who’s "going to take it out on whoever happens to be standing in her way."
CBS anchor Julie Chen asked Perkins if she supports legalizing marijuana in real life. "Oh yeah, absolutely." she answered. "Alcohol is legal. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me why marijuana's not."
Chen asked what her character would say in response. Perkins replied: "Oh, put them all in jail." Chen laughed and agreed. "She’s so self-righteous." Perkins then added, "Well, Celia’s probably the only character on the show who's never smoked marijuana...Never cave with marijuana, because that’s the ‘evil drug’ -- according to her." Chen guffawed along, in mockery of the anti-drug position.
Teenagers will go see the movie with the Nickelodeon star selling pot, and teenagers are in the audience when Showtime is displaying its affection for "Weeds." Hollywood is not merely mocking people who moralize against marijuana, they're actively encouraging young people to explore the "edgy" life of illegal drugs they see on screen. But Hollywood will not be around for comfort or counseling when teenagers have to go to detox, or see psychologists for depression or other mental problems.
They ought to look in the mirror and wonder if they’re the self-righteous people who are really screwed up and pushing evil.”

It was funny reading in the weekly newspaper of this little town how weed was growing in this little tub between the furniture store and another shop. The photo of this life saving herb was on the front page. Some Johnny Cannabisseed gentleman probably thoughtfully left the seeds maybe to make a statement in a fundamentalist/redneck town…

I did a search for health benefits of the herb:

"Are you sick of hearing your girlfriend nagging you about letting go of your pot pasttime?"""
( an ex hippy gf hypocritically comments on my site how wrong it is for a "special needs" teacher is a stoner yet she introduced me to her herbologist who happened to be a well endowed ex lover...I hate the connotations and image folks have of "stoners"


from the future:a neigboring tenant at my paradise home now even threatens to call immigration because I enjoy the benefits of totally natural medication!


I first enjoyed the herb with him and our neighbors


he's mad about me showering off the salt water in our communal back yard to the pacific because we are on a water restriction... so he called me a "cunt"...a common term used by hostile young Aussies intent on having a fight...)



"Have you been hearing a lot of negative things about the use of marijuana lately? Would you like to know what the real deal is behind the use of this infamous drug? Then read on because you're in for a surprise.One of the saddest things in North America is the lack of clinical trials on marijuana use. Many other countries in the world have already performed such tests in order to destroy myths about this drug, which has been in use for thousands of years... mainly for medicinal purposes.The data from previous studies, published in numerous books and scholarly journals, covered such matters as marijuana's effects on the brain, lungs, immune and reproductive systems; its impact on personality, developmental and motivational states; and its addictive potential.Although these studies did not answer all remaining questions about marijuana toxicity, they generally supported the idea that marijuana was a relatively safe drug -- not totally free from potential harm, but unlikely to create serious harm for most individual users or society.The following list will hopefully demystify several myths about marijuana use and help answer a lot of serious questions:
health risk myths & realitiesMarijuana Overdose There is no existing evidence of anyone dying of a marijuana overdose. Tests performed on mice have shown that the ratio of cannabinoids (the chemicals in marijuana that make you high) necessary for overdose to the amount necessary for intoxication is 40,000:1. For comparison's sake, that ratio for alcohol is generally between 4:1 and 10:1. Alcohol overdoses claim approximately 5,000 casualties yearly, but marijuana overdoses kill no one as far as any official reports.Brain Damage Marijuana is psychoactive because it stimulates certain brain receptors, but it does not produce toxins that kill them (like alcohol), and it does not wear them out as other drugs may. There is no evidence that marijuana use causes brain damage. Studies performed on actual human populations will confirm these results, even for chronic marijuana users (up to 18 joints per day) after many years of use.In fact, following the publication of two 1977 JAMA studies, the American Medical Association (AMA) officially announced its support for the decriminalization of marijuana.In reality, marijuana has the effect of slightly increasing alpha-wave activity in your brain. Alpha waves are generally associated with meditative and relaxed states, which are, in turn, often associated with human creativity.MemoryMarijuana does impair short-term memory, but only during intoxication. Although the authoritative studies on marijuana use seem to agree that there is no residual impairment following intoxication, persistent impairment of short-term memory has been noted in chronic marijuana smokers, up to 6 and 12 weeks following abstinence.What other myths have been going around about smoking a doobie ?

It bothers me that cannabis users are thought of as stoners ...conservative folks have a closeminded view towards the habit just because of the illegality...

100 years ago, it would have been just regarded as someone enjoying some good smoke!
