Caveat Reador: I am almost not enough left to push this further...

I am losing the plot...

Hey Kids, Jeff Cobb here. Thats more of a statement of mind than anything. I am approaching a crossroads of sorts, a nexus. My abilities are dwindling quicker than I would like and since I have run this since the get-go and have no sane assistant, its getting harder and harder not just to stay on top of things but to make sense of them at all.  Focus comes in smaller and smaller doses, while the span of my working memory seems to shrink daily, making most tasks "lost" between conception and commencement.

I am not giving up, though at times its hard to see why not. Not speaking of death here; that will come on its own. I just mean once the daily humiliation reaches my personal FUCK-IT threshold, there just don't be any chance of gain in trying things. And I will retreat further into my mind. I have already been there alot and have a summer retirement world all picked out. Its not finished yet, there is much to do before full time occupancy but for now its an investment in my future.

My growing skills have atrophied...not the basics, that stuff is tattooed on my soul. No what kills me now is that my logic and deductive reasoning are shot so when almost anything goes wrong or not according to plan I am usually at a loss as to why or what to do about it.  Ironically I had some software sketched out where you took all of the images in the Marijuana Garden Saver Guide and enter them and their textual descriptions into a database, then write an app in Android that could take a picture of a troubled plant and thru pattern matching find likely causes and cures instantly.  Iron deficiency, light burn, root rot all could be sorted this way.

But now its beyond me. At one time I was the factory owner and knew every machine and employee. I knew how to steer the factory to a profit. Now? Now I am the line-worker, sticking widget A into sprocket B or whatever for 8 hour shifts. I have only the vaguest of ideas how the company is doing or how to make it better if its not doing well. I know my little piece and thats that.

All may not be lost, its a dice-roll but after consulting with my grow mentor and whats left of my brain, I am probably shift my whole operation over the a grow method called Hempy Buckets; more on that in time.

I will update this as I am able to but also understand as my aphasia gets worse, typing will be too hard for anything but emergencies. For now I will write as I can but you must also remember I will be less and less of this reality and who knows what will come out. I had hoped to hang on to the 2020 election but now....barring a miracle now thats doubtful.

Dementia Cannabis Update

Project started, grow page and journal is here:

Operation: Constant Clarity

This is one of the most difficult posts I have had to write, mostly because I "had" to. Allow me to explain and I promise by the end you will not only understand the "difficulty" and the "had to" bit but also I hope you come away with a few new assumptions or conclusions, you pick and if all that passes you by, perhaps you will find illumination as this is some serious "dementia from the inside out" kinda shit.

The 18:1 Theory
Before I tell you what happened, please recall I have expressed a theory or hypothesis on the effects of a cannabis extract/concentrate that tests out to have a CBD:THC ratio of 18-1 on the demented mind. By demented I mean any brain with not just dementia but anything that alters so-called normal operation. I don't mean anything like it fixes everything, rather there are things that are fixed by this like PTSD and ADD that you …

Be Who You Actually Are

Many moons ago I was starting my day like many of us enjoying the gifts of dementia by spending most of it screwing up each and every thing I attempted to do, large or small and usually in ways both spectacular as well as costly.  On the verge of tears I spent about an hour medicating with my very best botanicals when I had the BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious, engineer-speak): I am still attempting to be something that I am not only NOT but barring acts of a supreme deity, never will be again. Its just that damned simple.

* What makes a persons personality unique is the precise set of influences, patterns of thinking, lifetime experiences or memories amongst many other things. These are all stored and/or controlled by the brain.

* The root cause of dementia is damage to select portions of the brain.

* For better or worse, the simple truth is that this will result in a different person. Not better or lesser, simply different, in the same way that any two coworkers might be very dif…

Holy Crap Batman! A hero with dementia!

Braven 2018
Hey kids, I ran across something you just HAVE to watch. I mean you as in readers of these words. Looking for entertainment last night I was scrounging some of the dodgier parts of the Internet for something not involving a cape or "found footage" to watch. Long story short I ran across something from this year (2018) called Braven, starring Jason Mamoa (Aquaman/Ronin on Stargate Atlantis) and Stephen Lang (the major hard-ass in Avatar).  Plot reads like a B-roll actioner, drug dealers drop in on county folk and try to take them on their own turf. I agree, major tired plotline BUT......
Here is the kicker: The country folks (Mamoa/Lang) are in the cabin in the woods kinda thing because Lang (plays Mamoas dad) has alzheimers (he blames it on some Vietnam injury but...) and got into a fight at a local bar, thinking some girl was his dead wife out on the town. 
Of course Jason beats everyones ass in proper manner as it should be but thats why these two are in the c…
