I’m getting everything lined up for the next beta experiment. The next test will be entitled the “beta gamma control group study on cannabinoids and beta fish mutations and longevity” as soon as all my tanks and substrate and decorations arrive, I’ll set each tank up identically and wait for the plants to sprout. At the beginning of the year, I’ll get 2 male betas (must each have their own tank and be blocked from sight of other male), and 10 beta females so I’ll have a control group and an experimental group. The only variables will be the fish themselves and if they are being treated or not. I hope this research has value one day.
I’m setting the fish back up at the beginning of the year. I just ordered 3 more aquarium for a control group of male and female betas and a group that gets oil. I’ve nearly got all my supplies together to start setting up the tanks. I’m also Gonna get some asexual snails and see if there are differences in reproductive rates in the snails between the treated and non treated tanks.
I like the beta fish experiments. It’s going to be hard on me watching the untreated ones passing away around the 6 month mark. I’m going to use December for all the supplies to get here and to plant the live plants then, just after the first of the year when the plants have sprouted and the tanks are steady I can go get the fish and snails. Starting in January helps people easily count how long the fish live.
Mutated fish? Your fish look beautiful?!
The deformities sometimes become less pronounced. The point of the experiment is the longevity of these mutant fish with a short life cycle due to their mutations. I’m getting them to live almost as long as Betas unmutated. It’s about increasing life and quality life. You can tell the fish are healthier after just a few days home from the store with oil started.
Usually they are kept in such small containers they can barely swim against a current when I first get them. It’s sad the beta trade. Most of the fish on pet store shelves are mutants they would never breed due to deformities.
The breeders keep the healthy betas from each brood to mate, with broods of 500 eggs or more there are plenty of mutants to be had especially since humans have been playing with their genes for centuries as fighting fish to bet on similar to cock fights in the Deep South.
They have curls on their fins and just look different from their fellows. Often their fins are oversized and flop over. Their proportions are just off. I had to do a lot of research on betas to be able to spot what’s normal and what’s not between the many beta subspecies. It really can be hard to tell, as you have seen I try to pick specimens that are beautiful and mutated. So people can see the beauty in mutation not just its negative effects.
Like me. I’m perfectly formed except for the tumors but am a major mutation. I’m tiny, but I’m also told I’m beautiful and worth extending the life of. I’m trying to prove the same point about these fish. I believe I’m ahead of my Time and some day we may dump Cannabis oil at specific locations of the oceans around the world to help them heal from what we’ve done to them. I’m also asking a fundamental question… In the absence of a creator, why would fish that likely only naturally have contact with the cannabinoids if a bud fell in their pond or whose roots were in their pond. I believe most all animals have an endicanabbinoid system, why? Because we were all intended to benefit from a holy plant.
And that theory makes sense if you believe that we were brought here from elsewhere in the galaxy. Wherever we first developed, Cannabis was important or else the creator beings would not make so many animals and plants susceptible to the compounds of the plant.
We’ll see what the experiments bear out with having females around and a control group to prove my point about increasing longevity with cannabinoids. I just hope this research benefits someone or something someday. I’ve funded the research entirely on my own.
Check back at this post to see the the experiment develop.

Hinds’ Feet on High Places
|Hinds’ Feet on High Places|
|Publisher||Christian Literature Crusade|
|Media type||Print (Hardback &Paperback)|
|ISBN||ISBN 0 86065 192 4|
Hinds’ Feet on High Places is an allegorical novel by English author Hannah Hurnard. Hinds’ Feet was written in 1955 and has become a very successful work of Christian fiction, seeing new editions published as recently as July, 2005.
It is the story of a young woman named Much Afraid, and her journey away from her Fearing family and into the High Places of the Shepherd, guided by her two companions Sorrow and Suffering. It is an allegory of a Christian devotional life from salvation through maturity. It aims to show how a Christian is transformed from unbeliever to immature believer to mature believer, who walks daily with God as easily on the High Places of Joy in the spirit as in the daily life of mundane and often humiliating tasks that may cause Christians to lose perspective.
The book takes its title from Habakkuk 3:19, “The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.”
The story begins in the Valley of Humiliation with Much Afraid, being beset by the unwanted advances of her cousin, Craven Fear, who wishes to marry her. The Family of Fearings seems to have some strong similarities to the Addams Family. Much Afraid is ugly from all outward appearances, walking on club feet, sporting gnarled, deformed hands, and speaking from a crooked mouth that seems to have been made so by a stroke or the like.
The Good Shepherd is tender and gentle with Much Afraid, especially in the beginning. However, His many sudden departures may strike the reader as bizarre, given the human penchant to expect kindly souls to never do everything that may be interpreted as rude or as hurtful in any way. Yet, though the Shepherd leaves in a moment, He returns the same way at the first furtive cry of the forlorn little protagonist. “Come, Shepherd, for I am much afraid!”
When Much Afraid intimates that she would love to be able to dance upon the high places as do the surefooted deer, the Shepherd commends her for this desire. In order to accomplish this, he offers to “plant the seed of love” into her heart. At first sight of the long, black hawthorne-looking seed, she shrieks in fear. Soon, she relents, and after the initial intense pain, she senses that something is indeed different in her, though she still looks the same, for now.
Just when the reader thinks that Much Afraid is about to reach the High Places, the path turns downward towards a seemingly endless desert. There is incident with an extremely high cliff that must be ascended by a steep, slippery and very narrow zig-zagging track, with the help of her two companions, Sorrow and Suffering. Then days are spent in a forest that is shrouded in a thick cloud of fog. During this time Much Afraid is sequestered with her two friends in a log cabin. The climax is an unexpected twist that comes as Much Afraid despairs of ever reaching the High Places.

The piece is really a self portrait about my activism journey/personal life 2009-2012 set to the pink floyd animals album. im thinking the subtle message may be too personal and understated for most to “get it”
If you didn’t care what happened to me,
And I didn’t care for you,
We would zig zag our way through the boredom and pain
Occasionally glancing up through the rain.
Wondering which of the buggars to blame
And watching for pigs on the wing.
You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you’re on the street,
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.
And after a while, you can work on points for style.
Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
So that when they turn their backs on you,
You’ll get the chance to put the knife in.
You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
You know it’s going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
And in the end you’ll pack up and fly down south,
Hide your head in the sand,
Just another sad old man,
All alone and dying of cancer.
And when you loose control, you’ll reap the harvest you have sown.
And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
And it’s too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw
So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,
Dragged down by the stone.
I gotta admit that I’m a little bit confused.
Sometimes it seems to me as if I’m just being used.
Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
If I don’t stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this
Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
That everyone’s expendable and no-one has a real friend.
And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
And everything’s done under the sun,
And you believe at heart, everyone’s a killer.
Who was born in a house full of pain.
Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
Who was told what to do by the man.
Who was broken by trained personnel.
Who was fitted with collar and chain.
Who was given a pat on the back.
Who was breaking away from the pack.
Who was only a stranger at home.
Who was ground down in the end.
Who was found dead on the phone.
Who was dragged down by the stone.
Pigs (Three Different Ones) (Waters) 11:26
Big man, pig man, ha ha charade you are.
You well heeled big wheel, ha ha charade you are.
And when your hand is on your heart,
You’re nearly a good laugh,
Almost a joker,
With your head down in the pig bin,
Saying “Keep on digging.”
Pig stain on your fat chin.
What do you hope to find.
When you’re down in the pig mine.
You’re nearly a laugh,
You’re nearly a laugh
But you’re really a cry.
Bus stop rat bag, ha ha charade you are.
You fucked up old hag, ha ha charade you are.
You radiate cold shafts of broken glass.
You’re nearly a good laugh,
Almost worth a quick grin.
You like the feel of steel,
You’re hot stuff with a hatpin,
And good fun with a hand gun.
You’re nearly a laugh,
You’re nearly a laugh
But you’re really a cry.
Hey you, Whitehouse,
Ha ha charade you are.
You house proud town mouse,
Ha ha charade you are
You’re trying to keep our feelings off the street.
You’re nearly a real treat,
All tight lips and cold feet
And do you feel abused?
…..! …..! …..! …..!
You gotta stem the evil tide,
And keep it all on the inside.
Mary you’re nearly a treat,
Mary you’re nearly a treat
But you’re really a cry.
Harmlessly passing your time in the grassland away;
Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air.
You better watch out,
There may be dogs about
I’ve looked over Jordan, and I have seen
Things are not what they seem.
What do you get for pretending the danger’s not real.
Meek and obedient you follow the leader
Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel.
What a surprise!
A look of terminal shock in your eyes.
Now things are really what they seem.
No, this is no bad dream.
The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
He makes me down to lie
Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by.
With bright knives He releaseth my soul.
He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places.
He converteth me to lamb cutlets,
For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger.
When cometh the day we lowly ones,
Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
Master the art of karate,
Lo, we shall rise up,
And then we’ll make the bugger’s eyes water.
Bleating and babbling I fell on his neck with a scream.
Wave upon wave of demented avengers
March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream.
Have you heard the news?
The dogs are dead!
You better stay home
And do as you’re told.
Get out of the road if you want to grow old.
You know that I care what happens to you,
And I know that you care for me.
So I don’t feel alone,
Or the weight of the stone,
Now that I’ve found somewhere safe
To bury my bone.
And any fool knows a dog needs a home,
A shelter from pigs on the wing.

Update July 6, 2012
Here is Dukes file of what I have done so far as to treatment and some updated pictures of Dukes shoulder with the THC oil applied.
I will send you weekly updates.
I was thinking about how Duke is the first to take this sort of treatment and he is sort of a Pioneer to this treatment. I was wondering if you had any Veterinarians in your area that you might be able to contact to see if they had any current patients that the doctor is treating for cancer or not treating for cancer. Some people once their told their dog has cancer they simply let the dog live out their final days at home and they when the dog is in too much pain or can’t get up anymore that’s when the Dr. or Vet put them to sleep. Maybe the Dr. might be willing to let you have the name of one or two patients and you can approach them and offer them a treatment program if they agree to be fully documented as to what happens.
Be aware that the Dr. may not want to participate or be involved or just say no. Use tact and diplomacy to get him to give you the names of a few of his patients currently going through cancer with their pets.
I think if there is two cases going on (Duke and you) then we can compare notes and progress.
It’s just a thought, the more documentation we can present with pictures and video the better we are of having it accepted as a treatment for dogs or cats and eventually people.
Keep sending Duke your prayers,
Most recent pictures of Duke the Cancer Fighting Dog
Duke’s dad would like everyone to know that if you have multiple dogs, you need to watch the dog being treated for signs that the other dogs are sensing some weakness in your pooch and picking on them for it. Duke lives with a lot of other dogs. We have spoken about methods so that Duke is more alert so he can have more positive interactions with his canine buddies. We have suggested that Duke get most of his internal oil at night time when his pals are more likely to want to lie down and sleep beside him rather than pick on him in play because his consciousness is altered.

Here is an update on Duke the dog, his owner writes “I am looking more closely at Dukes lump and it seems to feel different. What I mean is, when I would feel his lump before using the THC was hard and seemed attachd to his muscles or meat or bone.
Today for the first time it feels almost like it’s breaking loose from the bone or muscle and becoming looser and moveable. Example, put a baseball under a towel and tighten down the towel to where its hard to roll the ball around. Now loosen up the towel just a bit and notice how the ball seems easier to roll around.
What’s going on?” I replied to him that as long as he keeps the dogs body saturated in THC, then the tumor will devour itself, this process is called “Autophagy”

News from Happy Endings Animal Rescue
DUKE OUR GREETER DOG HAS CANCER
He is a Greyhound mix that greets
people when they come by to visit our rescue.
Duke is about 10 years old and over the last few
Months has developed a lump in his left shoulder which is now the size of a Mellon.
I have taken him
him to two of our Vets and both have said that I should just go ahead and put him down and end his suffering.
About 2 weeks ago I read a story about Tommy Chong from Cheech and Chong comedy team and found out
that Tommy Chong has Prostate Cancer and instead of treating it the normal way through chemo and surgery
that he is going to treat it with THC Hemp Oil (also known as: cannibals or marijuana oil). The THC in this plant
is known to cure Cancer.
I contacted the people at Phoenix Tears and explained who we are and all about Duke
I even sent pictures of the tumor and how it’s growing in his shoulder. The person I spoke with (Ronnie Smith)
have provided me with enough Hemp Oil to cure Duke of his Cancer. I am very excited to start treatment which will
take about 3 weeks to complete and hopefully at the end, Duke will be cured of his Cancer and will live a long and happy
Check back often for updates on his progress as I plan do document the entire treatment.
Cancer in dogs is responsible
for over 60% of the deaths of dogs that die.
Those that get cancer, most of their owners can’t afford the treatment which
could run from $5,000 to $10,000 and gives NO guarantees.
With this documented case on Duke I am hoping to shed a light on
alternate treatment for cancer in dogs and hopefully more people will go this holistic treatment and save more lives.
I have already been given the death sentence from 2 Veterinarians about Duke, so I really don’t have nothing to loose by at
least trying the treatment with the THC OIL. I will take plenty of pictures as to his progress and post them on this website.
WISH DUKE LUCK AND KEEP YOUR EMAILS OF HOPE COMING IN

The Good Reverend Says, my worm whispering has yielded Black Gold…. How you can too
Last night, the good Reverand Brandon Baker over at Greenfaith Ministry came to give me some compassion herb. I was so grateful that I began searching my mind for a gift I could bless him with. We talked of the grow contest here at GP and got to discussing my worm whispering technique. I decided to give him some of my worms, of which I’m so proud. And some of the soil they’ve produced as a thanks for me keeping them alive. They would have ended up on a hook, or died in a fridge, but I brought them home and put them in a bucket of crummy dirt instead. Black gold’s what I got says the rev with a smile, all it really needs is some pearlite, best he’s seen in a while.
You can do it to, its cheap and its fun. Follow the instructions, it’ll be worth it when your done.Materials and cost estimates (compare to repeatedly purchasing wormdirt and other items necessary to make “black gold”)
1 Small bag of organic soil (cheap by comparison to the outputs equivalent price)
2. 1 container night crawlers from any location carrying bait (I paid $3.00)
****Note make sure you look at your worms before purchase! They will likely be sluggish, as they are cold blooded and are kept in cold storage to slow their metabolisms, but they should be moving. They shouldn’t be too pale but a rich brown red color. If they look just a little weak, but are active, take those poor things home. If they look too far gone, leave them to be put on a hook and possibly provide someone with food.*******
3. A small amount of organic vegetable matter every few weeks…
Use what you’d usually compost or throw away. Bread crust too hard? worms love grains, just crumble it in. Blissful and can’t find your ashtray at the moment, if you don’t ash soon, your j’s about to make a mess? the ashes are great for the soil! Soil too wet and you just peeled an orange? Dry those pieces out over night and add to the soil, or add some pasta! Look at your soil’s issues, then find an organic, natural source of that nutrient and feed it to your worms. They will do the rest! It is that easy. However, do not overfeed your worms you will end up with a compost smell with my method. If you are already composting in a method where the worms will be able to survive (not cut to bit by mechanical blades), just toss them in there. The key is balance and variety with the feeding. something you will get the hang of if you just watch the behavior of your worms. They will go after what the soil is lacking first.
My worms have worked this dirt since about November 1 (as I post it is January 20, so nearly 3 months) Worms get fed at least every 2 weeks, and the earth gets stirred gently about 1/2 way down the bucket weekly. Careful not to hurt your worms, but if you do. These babies are amazing. Both halves have the potential to live. They have 10 hearts too! The microscopic good bacteria from their gut will further break down nutrients into smaller pieces for micro root hairs. Also worms are both hermaphrodite and asexual so just 4 worms can have a genetic hookup menu of
worm given numbers 1-4
With a relatively small number of parents you can have the genetic diversity necessary for a healthy population through generations. Also the worms can store some of the sex cells of their partner(s) after coitus for a long period, and use them to reproduce if left in an area with no worms. However I advocate they be given to your friends in breeding pairs or sets of pairs. They will be stronger with more genetic diversity they will survive and live through many generations, but higher possibility for genetic defects if only one worm is the parent… (inbreeding down the generations same as any other animal you might raise for fun and profit understand?)
I can find refrences on all of this information on worm life cycles for all those scholarly minded. Being in bed for a decade and a writer, I just laid there and devoured knowledge. I have an uncanny ability to retain “useless” information and re-purpose it. Got a problem needs solvin, at least ask, If I dunno the answer, I may know where to find it.
