Cool! I was 4th and 1st. I still get my glasses (hope they are still there) on 8th next to Puerto rico coffee-didn't recognize the area last time I was there
I know, I can only recognize buildings from the roofs, if I’m in a car or something! Lol My hubs was living on 3rd between 1st and A. It was a Hells Angels block, so it was safe. Lol
But at least I met my hubs down there in a bookstore on 7th off of 1st Ave. They had cool silver jewelry and weird books. <3
They gentrified the East Village into yuppie land, it was so sad.

The Angels did keep the neighborhood safer-I used to like checking out their bikes.esp.at 5am on the walk home from cbgb. They sold bldg. for like 10 mil and it's going to be 3500/mo rentals. Don't know where all these nyu kids get their money but....more power to them.

Their parents set those kids up! CB’s was so much fun. Even if they just had bands trying out there on off nights.

It’s nice to think of the Angels being rich, though. My friend ended up in one of the buildings they lived in, and she and her room mate used to bake them cookies to get on their good side! Lol

I’m glad you’re from NY. :hug:

It’s a coping thing in NY, I think! Lol
Helps in WV too. :) I sometimes forget myself when seeing "medical professionals" be talking to some "fresh & new" nurse. I'll crack wise with something rather dark adding a twist of humor to it. Out runs the young sweet innocent nurse, in steps a senior nurse who just dishes it right back.

Consider too I ran on a volunteer rescue squad in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. This particular "squad" got dubbed the spaghetti load-n-go crew by half a dozen or more squads in the area. The implications being we took the seriously dire triage cases in stride. And yes, we did, more than a few.

Our crew kept ourselves going remembering two things. One, if you run a coding patient it feels damn good for two weeks when you bring them back. Two, no matter what's going on don't be afraid to laugh your ass off when you get back to the station. There was a third unspoken rule we kept too. "Always stay professional on the call."

We had a young man that liked to forget the third rule. A few of the retired old dogs taught him a lesson though. He then ran off to join his buddies on the fire crew. He couldn't take the heat in the back of our baking ambulance. We baked up lives saved and patients cared for equally, professionally.

He once insulted a poor man we all called Bub. Bub suffered diabetes. Bub was also over 600 lbs, no matter his diet, no matter how they tried Bub couldn't drop his weight. This insulting young man told Bub to his face he was fat and needed to lose weight so we could get him on a gurney. I stepped over, lifted half of Bub up with one of the old dogs and gently laid him on the gurney. I excused the young man.

I then told Bub. "Yeah, he's just not as strong as this little runt 'ere ya think?" I added in a wink. Bub chuckled despite being in some rough shape at the time. I told him to keep laughing, we'd get him to the hospital. By the time we got there Bub was feeling worlds better. We hadn't given him anything. He asked us to bring him home but we suggested he stay and let the docs muse over him a night.

And of course, I picked on my mom something terrible while we ran squad. I once took some pillows and mummy wrapped them on a gurney in the back of one of the units. Well, I also took some mono-filiment line and hooked it to the unit's doors. She needed to do restock on the units. So, imagine her surprise. :)

Heard: "Oh my, there's a patient in there! I better get to them!" ... "Ah!!!! Oh, ... all kinds of expletives!"

It's been a while since I abandoned all things CBD. For several many months, I had been consuming expensive doses of lab-tested high strength (1000mg/30ml) broad spectrum CBD sublingual tincture on a daily basis. It would take up to an hour before the dose started to finally take effect, and, the high cost was always causing me to want to use it only sparingly. The former problem had led me to vape CBD e-liquid, the effect of which kicked in 5-6 times faster in comparison. But, also in comparison to using broad spectrum CBD tincture sublingually, the potency and the efficiency of vaping CBD e-liquid was lacking so, I continued to drop the sublingual tincture under my tongue also in addition to vaping CBD e-liquid. The combined cost of these two different forms of CBD usage was even higher.

These days instead of using CBD, I use dōTERRA Copaiba essential oil internally (i.e. by dropping 2-3 drops/day under my tongue) because, in my own personal experience, it has turned out to work multiple times better than any form of CBD, despite the fact that CBD was multiple times more expensive in the long haul. That plus this other fact, that broad spectrum CBD sublingual tincture contains many different terpenes not all of which have been studied well enough to be able to conclude there can't be long-term side effects that may actually be harmful to some extent that is still completely unknown. By contrast, the natural cyclic sesquiterpene called β-caryophyllene is known as a food additive that is Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS), and has been that for quite a long time. So an important bonus IMO is that, unlike broad spectrum CBD or full spectrum CBD, dōTERRA Copaiba essential oil does not contain any other terpenes, nor contains pollutants commonly found in the cheap inferior CBD products that a lot of people use as a result from not being able to afford high enough doses of the type of CBD that is both strong enough and of reliable quality. Another essential oil from this same brand I use is Cypress essential oil, and that I use topically by rubbing it under my feet after diluting it with fractionated coconut oil.

Recently I also started to experiment with the healing benefits of ambient music, specifically by listening through a good HiFi stereo system with big floorstanding speakers. I play two different tracks simultaneously and in infinite loops... the first one I turn the volume down to 95%.
