just some things I notice


Driver passes out, meth lab in back seat

Jan 2, 2:45 PM (ET)

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Police say a driver passed out in his car at a Tennessee gas station while a batch of methamphetamine was cooking in the back seat.
An employee at the gas station in Murfreesboro, about 30 miles southeast of Nashville, called police because the car was sitting at the pump for about an hour on New Year's Day.

Police say a chemical process to make the drug was in progress. Some meth-making ingredients can be explosive.

Murfreesboro Assistant Fire Chief Allen Swader told The Daily News Journal that gas pumps were shut off as a precaution.

Thirty-one-year-old Nathan E. Beasley is being held on a $15,000 bond on charges of driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license, reckless endangerment and manufacturing meth. No attorney was listed in police records.


todAAy i AAm grAAteful & thAAnkful

that I never did crystal meth. I am pretty sure I would have not wanted to stop. As a teenager in the early 70's, I used speed a number of times before I realized how much I liked it. I got scared so I stopped using it. I never got scared of alcohol or of being drunk.

for spiritual tools when I choose (or remember) to use them

for the people who still go to AA meetings and for all those who just came once

that our recovery friend, Garden Variety Drunk, was able to write and post to her blog yesterday from a commercial flight on Virgin America. Our first sober, mile-high blog?

People come into your life for a reason, a season, or a lifetime. When you figure out which it is, youll know exactly what to do.

I sure hope you drunks are there for a lifetime for me. I know what I need to do, just keep coming back. Thanks Dave.

I wonder how he was able to sleep with all that meth available in the back seat?

Alcohol is never scary to an alcoholic - until they are sober for a while.

I am so grateful that my experiments with drugs only included pot, hash, and one bad night with acid. I quit using anything recreationally when I was in graduate school. I never liked the goofy feeling anyway.

I wonder just how many people have sat just once in an AA meeting. Imagine if none of them ever left.

Great post as usual! Have a super day.

A portable meth lab? Is that a plant manufacturing a "weapon of mind destruction?" I guess we might have gotten confused and invaded and overthrown Tennessee...

Blessings and aloha...

.....as Scott said...and next imagine if every single person in AA/NA/Al-Anon stood on the lawn of the D.C. mall. We are everywhere. Yet, a taboo lingers over the disease.

Um, that driver went from being a moron to a traveling bomb. Holy crow.
