21st birthday celebration in Las Vegas

Jimmy didn’t want to go to the casino, or to see a show, he wanted to stay in the hotel room smoking cannabis and watching TV.

Jimmy and I are twins. When it was time for us to have our 21st birthdays, we decided we wanted to do the honors in Las Vegas. Going to Sin City has always been a dream for Jimmy and I, but until this moment it never seemed worth the effort. We live across the country from Las Vegas, so it was a major investment of time and money just to get there. We decided to wait until we turned 21 so that we could enjoy all the forbidden delights Las Vegas has to offer. Can you imagine going all that way to Las Vegas and then not be able to gamble, drink, or smoke cannabis? It sounds like a nightmare! When we finally got to Las Vegas for the big event, Jimmy and I took very different paths. Of course we both started our weekend in the nearest cannabis dispensary, where we spent too much money and bought too many cannabis products. After getting stoned in the hotel room I was ready to hit the town and see what the famous Las Vegas nightlife had to offer. Jimmy didn’t want to go to the casino, or to see a show, he wanted to stay in the hotel room smoking cannabis and watching TV. I was stunned that after finally living the Las Vegas dream Jimmy wanted to smoke marijuana and not see the town. Fortunately I didn’t need my twin brother to have a great time in Las Vegas. I got back to the hotel room just after dawn, and Jimmy was still watching TV and smoking cannabis.

Work has traveling to California a lot

Work has me traveling all the time. I am constantly presenting new products to potential clients. I got really used to living out of a suitcase. I also am used to making friends in the area and being alone a lot. I really like when work makes me go somewhere warm. It is easy to be alone in a beautiful location. Give me a beach and I am settled. My work constantly seems to put me in California. That is my favorite state to visit. I can hike around, eat great food and also get a tan on the beach. My most recent trip had me going to Beverly Hills. At first I was a bit bummed. It wasn’t right on the beach and the area is quite pricey. I also am not a big shopper at all. I didn’t really find any appeal. When I went there though, that was a different story. I was able to enjoy the area because it is so beautiful. Rodeo Drive was fun to experience. I didn’t need to buy the high end stuff to enjoy myself. I found some great hikes and awesome cuisine. What was great is that there was legal cannabis there. I could just walk into a dispensary and pick up the products that I wanted. I really enjoy an edible at the end of a workday. After giving presentations all day, I get really mentally drained. With an edible I can relax and sleep much better. I usually pick up THC infused gummies or chocolates. Sadly I am not able to take them back with me on the plane. So during my work trip I really need to be careful what I buy and make sure to take them all before I leave.

With legal medical marijuana now, the city is filled with shops

Back in 2016, the governor of Pennsylvania legalized medical marijuana for patients across the state.

Pennsylvania was the 24th state in the union to adopt laws legalizing medical marijuana for patients over the age of 21.

It’s easy to obtain a medical marijuana license in pennsylvania. You have to visit a physician that can certify you for one of a number of qualifying medical conditions. You also have to pay for a Pennsylvania state issued medical marijuana card. The card looks a lot like a driver’s license. After that, you can start purchasing marijuana from an approved dispensary in the state. There are more than 100 different medical marijuana dispensaries in the state, but there are very few close to the area where I live. If I want a good selection of medical marijuana products, I drive into Philadelphia. There are several medical marijuana dispensaries in Philadelphia that offer a first-time patient special, delivery services, and easy to use pick up services. Philadelphia is about an hour away from my home. On Monday I decided to drive into the city so I could go to a marijuana dispensary that is close to Franklin music hall. I parked my car in a lot a few blocks away from the dispensary. When I came back out of the dispensary, I realized that my car had a broken window. During the 30 minutes that I was inside of the marijuana dispensary, someone broke into my car and stole my ipad, phone, and my car radio. I called the police to report the theft, but the officer did not think it would be easy to find my things.

Convenience of pre-rolls

While I’ve experimented with the different types of consumption methods, I prefer old-school smoking.

I find the process of it especially relaxing and enjoyable.

I appreciate the flavor and rapid onset of effects. Unfortunately, I’m not capable of rolling a decent joint. I’ve practiced and simply can’t manage it. I either pack too much or too little weed into the joint. I then roll the paper too tight or too loose. Sometimes, my hand-rolled joints refuse to stay lit. Other times, they burn way too quickly and create an incredibly long ash. I also create a bit of a mess when I attempt to roll a joint. There’s a great deal of waste. I find it aggravating that I need to keep so much equipment handy. I don’t always have access to a grinder and papers. Initially, I was reluctant to try pre-rolls. I’d heard that they were made of lower quality weed such as shake or trim. I don’t want to smoke a bunch of sticks and seeds. I am particular about the quality of the bud. For me, smoking weed is an indulgence. It’s a treat that I look forward to. I only smoke after work or on the weekends, when I need to de-stress. I am willing to pay more for top-shelf flower. I am very thankful that the dispensaries in Albuquerque offer a wide variety of pre-rolled joints and blunts. They sell machine-rolled and hand-roll options, and I can purchase products infused with concentrate for an extra boost of flavor and potency. Singles are affordable enough that I can try something new. Or I can save money buying packs of my favorites. I have had no trouble finding the most well-respected producers and most popular strains on the shelves. I can trust in a consistent and smooth burn every time.

The sky was filled with pretty colors last night

There’s nothing better than being able to look up at the sky and see pretty night time colors like purple, orange, red, and pink.

The sky was filled with pretty colors last night.

My girlfriend and I decided to drive over to the airport so we could watch the planes come in and out of the terminal. There are a couple of cool places to sit on the hood of the car and the planes are very close. Before we went to the airport, my girlfriend and I stopped at a recreational marijuana dispensary in Albuquerque. We picked up a couple of infused marijuana joints. The infused marijuana joints were a little expensive, but it was a special occasion. My girlfriend and I were celebrating our two month anniversary. She was the one that wanted to go to the airport to watch the planes. It was my idea to stop at the marijuana dispensary in Albuquerque. One of the infused marijuana joints that we picked out was a sativa called strawberry cough. When I opened up the marijuana joint, I could smell strawberries everywhere inside of the car. The joint tasted like strawberries as well. My girlfriend and I smoked the one gram joint and both of us felt really good when the joint was finished. The infused marijuana joint was easily one of the best things I have had in a long time. After my girlfriend and I were done at the airport, we went back to the marijuana dispensary in Albuquerque to buy more of the infused joints.

Upgrade to zone control for second home in Tampa

If the air conditioner or dehumidifier were to fail, we would receive a text message alert

When my husband and I got tired of the snow and cold in the north, we purchased a second home in Tampa, Florida. Affording a property with waterfront access was difficult. We ended up purchasing a home in need of a great deal of renovations. Since my husband and I are both very handy, we didn’t mind the work. We enjoyed making improvements that perfectly suited our lifestyle. We were simply happy to have the opportunity to live in such a gorgeous area of the country. While there is a great deal of rain in Tampa, there are also plenty of blue skies and sunshine. The temperature climbs into the eighties or eighties for the majority of the year. There are, however, some chilly nights over the winter that require heating. Another issue is the year round humidity. Our remodeling project included new windows, adding insulation to walls and ceilings and installing ceiling fans. We also invested into a new electric heat pump and duct sealing. The expense of these upgrades has been recovered through lower energy bills. One of the best decisions we made was to pay a bit more for zone control and smart thermostats. Through an app on our phone, we are able to adjust heating and cooling according to the requirements and occupancy of each particular room. Not only does this feature help with comfort and energy efficiency while we are in residence, it proves invaluable when we are up north over the summer. With remote access, we can easily make sure that the indoor temperature is right where it should be. If the air conditioner or dehumidifier were to fail, we would receive a text message alert. We get notified if there is a power outage and receive reminders to schedule maintenance and replace air filters.

My central heating keeps me comfortable when it’s cold outside

One of my favorite things to do is to go to the cherry bottom festival in DC.

  • And luckily, I live in Waldorf Maryland which means D.C.

is less than 30 miles away. In fact, Waldorf is considered a suburb of D.C. so we are just outside the limits of the capital. Anyway, the cherry blossoms are typically blooming around from the end of March to mid-April. By far, the blooms are the prettiest thing about D.C. Of course, the buildings are great as well, and if you’re a history buff, you’ll love it. The weather in Waldorf has been like a roller coaster, so I am not sure how that will impact the cherry blossoms. For instance, today it’s about 35 degrees for the high, which means I am currently using my central heating, but in the next few days, it will warm up to the mid-60s, so I won’t need to have my central heating running with the temperature that high outside. But looking at the forecast, after the weekend, the weather will drop again and the forecast is also calling for some snow. Of course, at that point, I will turn on my central heating again. Lately, the weather has been so weird that it has gotten difficult to plan outings. If it’s too cold outside, I prefer to remain at home, cozying up on my sofa with a good book. But if it’s nice outside, I love spending time outdoors. So, I am grateful that the weather will be nice for the cherry blossom festival this year. If it wasn’t, you better believe that I would opt to stay inside in my home with my comfortable central heating.

Ripping out the pointless wood stove

When I first moved into my house in Buffalo NY, I wasn’t pleased with the woodstove.

It was a centrally located device that took up most of the living room.

The previous owners built a brick pad for it to sit on. The woodstove was vented into the wood ceiling and there was a stack on the roof. New York gets really cold. A wood stove isn’t really a feasible heating system. The past homeowners had a central heater that worked great. It took me a while to realize the woodstove was merely a decorative piece. Well I ripped that sucker right out. It was a lot of work. I had to remove the brick pad and redo my carpet. I had to patch the wood ceiling and hire roofers to take out the stack. I then had to sell that heating system. Nobody in my area of Buffalo wanted a wood stove. It was small and pointless. I eventually got a guy in New York City that was willing to take the woodstove and use it in his man cave. It was small enough to do that. Now my husband and I get by with just our central heater. It works just great and takes up no room other than closet space. I love that I can arrange the living room furniture how I want and have a brand new carpet in there. It was expensive moving such a decorative piece but worth it in the end. I am really glad I made the update.

I needed help with the AC soon

My mom and dad moved to Ocala about 15 years ago and they decided to buy a house in a premier neighborhood called The Villages.

At the time that my parents moved, The Villages was still a very new place.

There were a few shops and houses, but back then The Villages was just an idea. After 15 years, The Villages has grown in size. My mom and dad still live in the same house, but the neighborhood has grown around them. When they moved, there was only a shopping center, fitness center, and a couple of small shops and boutiques. Now there are more than 50 different shops and businesses within two blocks of my mom’s place. I went to visit my mom a couple of weeks ago. She told me that there was a problem with the AC unit and she needed to get it fixed. She didn’t know who to call, so I decided to drive to The Villages to look at her air conditioner. I honestly didn’t know if I would be able to fix the problem, but I knew that I would be able to find someone to help my mom and dad. I looked at the AC unit and checked all of the regular problems that can keep the unit from working properly. I checked the thermostat, air filter, motor, fuses, and the breaker. When I was unable to service the system, I decided to call for an AC repair in The Villages. There were several AC repair companies close by and many of those businesses had same day services.

Our weather is colder than Iceland

I wouldn’t have it any other way though

Did you know that Buffalo NY gets colder weather than Iceland? People are always shocked when they hear that. Iceland has to be cold right? Well I live in Buffalo and I went on my honeymoon in iceland. It gets cold there. The summers are in the 50s and it gets into the 30s during the winter. Nobody has tan lines or swimsuits there. Everyone dresses up in warm gear. It is cold, but not noteworthy. My hometown gets much colder. The snow is just horrible. Rather than inches, it comes down to feet. The ice is always a problem. It frequently warms up to wear the snow melts and leaves a wet residue. Then the night gets cold and freezes. What is worse is that if snow follows there is a bunch of hidden black ice. It can be super dangerous driving in the area. I remember driving my car to University at Buffalo and the weather was -22 degrees. That was a typical winter day for us. You just learn how to dress in our area. You can have no exposed skin. Have you seen the movie Fargo where the guy has his hood wrapped so tight around his face he is just a nose? Well that is how you dress in our area. You can’t go outside without a scarf, gloves and a hat. You need thermal gear and waterproof boots. I wouldn’t have it any other way though. I can’t imagine how people deal with 100 degree heat. It is much easier to warm up than cool down.
