Could You Stay In Bed This Long?!

     I know I do a lot of talking on this blog...and a lot of 'showing off people's cute stuff'...and a lot of bird and backyard watching. And I love every minute of it! :-) But I saw something on my local television station's online site (WWLP on Facebook) last night that made me really wanna talk about it today!!!
     It fascinated and intrigued me!..Why?!...Because it involves people staying in the bed for a looooooooooong time!! ^_^ And I'm not talking two days long time. I'm talking more than two months long time!! O_O
      Apparently NASA...the National Aeronautics and Space looking for volunteers who are willing to lie in bed for 70 days!...70 days!!! That's it, just lie there!... And your reward if you make it?!.....$18,000!!! :-) ...Uhhhhh....let me see...what do I have planned for the next couple of months!! LOL...

      Apparently there's a study being done to research the effects on the human body of long-term spaceflight. The kind where you're strapped in for weeks. They'll pay volunteers about $18,000 to do it...but you can't get up! You can read books, play on the computer, watch TV, even work, but you have to stay on that bed, lying down...for 70 days!...*blink! blink!*
         Could you do it?!...Could you forgo everything else going on, and just lie in a bed for 70 order to collect $18,000?!!!....Uhhhh YEAH!!!! ^_^ I KNOW I COULD!!! I love my bed!! :-) As long as I could nap...and eat something good...conduct some Bible studies...and do my blog...and crochet...and chat on Facebook and Twitter every once in a while...I'd be in!!! :-)

         If you want some more information, or you wanna volunteer for the study.....It's only 70 days after all! ^_^ kidding! This is a serious study!!...just click HERE!
       The only reason I'm not all over this is because I have a date tonight! LOL And I don't think they'll let you tag-team your 70 day bed stay with somebody else!! ^_^ I wouldn't give up my 'virtual' Friday Date for NOTHING!!!....not even the time to nap myself into oblivion....or $18,000...or NOTHING!!!! ^_^ What am I....CRAZY?!!!
       Have a good weekend, Everybody!...Take a nap or something. :-))

Time Goes By So Fast!

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Before you eat your breakfast,
seems it's yesterday again!

You visit with some friends,
go to work and cut the lawn.
Then you look up from your book
and face another fleeting dawn!

You're planning what's for dinner,
jotting down the grocery list.
You wake up from a nap,
and now you're looking at a mist!

Time goes by so fast!
It seems to fly just like the wind.
Make the most out of it,
cause it may not come again!


  1. Would NOT want to be in bed that long!! I guess it's the ADD in me! LOL
    But if they want to give me the money....they can! Ha ha ha!!!
    Have a great day my friend! :D

    1. I know what you mean, Cindy! NOT easy!!!...All I have to say is 'where is my money!!' LOL...Have a great day yourself, my friend! ^_^ ♥

  2. No way! I can hardly stand to sit for very long! (wait..just I just write " sit?..crazy!) Anyway, I think the money should be doubled and I'm only going to ask about the necessary do you go to the bathroom??? I mean, who's going to help with that??? Anyway, have a good weekend and I hope that includes pancakes!

    1. Ha! Ha!, no NASA bed study for Yaya!! LOL But I do agree with you about the money!! I mean, if those 'Big Brother' winners can get $500,000 for...what is it?...6 weeks!...a whole 70 days should be worth at least $600,000!!! a personal nurse day and night!...just saying!! ^_^
