The link between your energy levels, space dust, comets and PQQ

At 75 years of age, I am 10 years past the 65-year-old elderly gateway. But I don't feel it. I honestly don't. One of my major battles is to not lose ground on energy levels, and trying to avoid dementia. So far - so good.

This may sound like an advertisement, but I assure you, it's not. When pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) became available via the Life Extension Foundation, i did a large amount of research on my own and liked the idea of boosting energy at the cellular level. I eventually bought in to the concept and have been taking PQQ for years.


Part of the reason I write about the Boston Celtics and many other subjects is to maintain brain function at least at a reasonable level, in effect keeping the neurons working properly. And now learning about the connection between PQQ, space dust, comets and the beginnings of life only enhances my inquisitiveness - the thing that separates the young from the old.

The entire LEF article is worth reading, but for those that don't, I offer the following via the piece:

FROM SPACE DUST
PQQ is synthesized in some of the Earth’s simplest and oldest organisms, such as soil bacteria. That has led scientists to believe it may be central to the very formation and existence of life on this planet.

This viewpoint is supported by fascinating findings from outer space. Researchers recently analyzed the chemical makeup of dust from a comet’s tail. They found evidence that PQQ is contained in this material.

This startling discovery has led to speculation that the Earth may have been seeded with PQQ from space, contributing to the development of early life.

You can accept or discard these ideas, but I personally find it fascinating. Who knew?

The Elm Street Nightmare

 A true-and-suspenseful horror tale of haunting, homicides and the hunt for triple-murderer, Daniel Laplante - as told by the cops that were there By Lt. Thomas Lane (Ret.) and Off.

As a 16-year old , he quickly transitioned from: Minor thefts and breaking into homes To: Taunting and threatening a father and

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len

Using trade exception to acquire Aaron Gordon needs consideration

The Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon was taken fourth-overall in the 2014 NBA draft, two spots before Boston picked Marcus Smart at #6. I felt at the time that Danny Ainge would have taken Gordon with the sixth pick if the 6'8" power forward was still on the board. Well now, with a $28.5 million trade exception in his hands, it may be time to consider adding the super-athletic wing. Here's why: Brad Stevens feels you can't have enough mid-sized wings Brad Stevens does not favor the "little guys" because they often get mis-matched on defense by taller opponents. He also is not fond of the old-school, big centers. In his mind, they just can't be effective on his switching, perimeter defensive strategies. Gordon's salary fits the trade exception Aaron is set to earn $18.1 million this season and $16.4 million in the 2021-22 season. His salary was front-loaded, and that relatively-low $16.1 million figure kicks in when Jayson Tatum's max contract goes
