The huge convention in Portland

I assume it was a joke that the national association of weather broadcasters decided to hold their annual convention in Portland, Oregon; This section is well known for having drab, dreary weather throughout most of the year, it’s a great city, don’t get me wrong, but nobody comes here for the weather… Which ironically made it the perfect spot for me plus the other weathermen plus weather ladies to relax plus talk shop for a long weekend.

There are several hundred people in our organization, although only a hundred of them attended the Portland convention.

That was their loss, because this was the best convention of all time, plus all the thanks go to the people of Portland. To the surprise of no one there was heavy rain plus chilly temps the entire weekend, which is normal for the Portland area. It was so chilly plus windy out that nobody wanted to leave the downtown Portland hotel for any reason. Thankfully the hotel employer had a acquaintance down the street who owned plus operated a cannabis dispensary plus a cannabis cafe. We were able to have the finest cannabis infused dishes in Portland delivered to the lobby, for a feast that kept us indoors for the whole weekend. To go along with the locally grown Portland cannabis, the hotel employer also had a few cases of locally brewed carona delivered for the convention. We did unquestionably little work, plus a whole lot of drinking plus smoking, however all in all it was the best convention ever, plus I must say Portland knows how to party.

The edibles were moldy so I took them back

Most of the time when my friends and I go to the dispensary, we are generally pleased with the items that we purchase.

  • There are lots of different dispensaries in the Seattle area.

Many of them deliver to the apartment building where I live. There are at least a dozen different places where I can order marijuana and have it delivered. I was entertaining my girlfriend and I decided to buy some edibles. I bought sativa edibles for my girlfriend because I thought that she would enjoy them when we went to the beach for the day. I did not bother to open up the edibles until the day that my girlfriend arrived. The package was still factory sealed so it was really strange that there was mold inside of the package. I contacted the marijuana dispensary and the manager was very curious to find out more about that package. She told me that she would replace the moldy edibles with anything else in the Seattle marijuana dispensary. I went down to the shop and the woman looked at the edibles. She wrote down all of the information from the back of the package and then she threw the contents into the garbage. I thought she would at least take a picture, but she just threw the package into the garbage. After that she told me to pick out any other edible and it was going to be on the house. I wasn’t going to say no to the offer. I hoped they would throw in a couple of free marijuana pre rolls for the trouble.

Learning about dabbing

Although I am fairly new to the world of concentrates, I have made an effort to try out different consumption methods.

I’ve experimented with smokable flower, vapes, tinctures, edibles and beverages.

I was intimidated to try concentrates. They’re produced by stripping away plant materials and leaving behind the most valuable compounds. The cannabinoids and terpenes make concentrates especially flavorful and effective. They range between 60 and 99% THC potency while flowers are typically between 10 to 30% THC. Because of the potency, it doesn’t take very much to achieve the effects. A little goes a long way. Plus, the effects last longer. There are a lot of different types and textures of concentrates sold at the Muskegon dispensary. I can buy oils, shatters, hash, kief, waxes, rosin, diamonds, budder, live sauce and more. They are especially versatile. I was interested in dabbing. All of the standard concentrates can be consumed through dabbing but the process requires lots of gear. I wasn’t sure I wanted to purchase a dab rig, a quartz nail or banger, a dab tool, a carb cap and a torch. Fortunately the Muskegon dispensary includes a dab bar and rents the gear. With the assistance of a knowledgeable budtender, I felt confident dabbing. The dab tool is used to scoop out a small amount of concentrate that is applied to the bottom of the banger. It’s topped with the carb cap and then the torch is used to heat the concentrate to the point of vaporization. Vapor is inhaled from the dab rig. The flavor is amazing. The effects are realized very quickly.

Visiting dispensary on trip to balloon festival in Albuquerque

My boyfriend and I planned our trip to Albuquerque in October, in order to attend the International Balloon Fiesta.

It’s something that I’ve always wanted to experience. It is the largest hot air balloon festival and the images online are truly stunning. It is believed to be the most photographed event in the world and draws in a huge crowd of participants and spectators from across the world. The festival lasts for nine days, and there are hundreds of balloons in the sky at a time. There’s skydiving, a light show, fireworks, chainsaw carving, twilight balloon glows and all sorts of things to do and enjoy. Our trip did not disappoint. While the accommodations were expensive and parking was somewhat of a nightmare, my boyfriend and I had an amazing time. The weather was absolutely perfect with pure blue skies and loads of sunshine. As an added bonus, recreational weed is totally legal and accessible in Albuquerque. Coming from a state that has not yet adopted medicinal or recreational marijuana, we were especially excited to shop at a dispensary. The size of the dispensary and number of products was really surprising. We weren’t expecting a dab bar, vape lounge and on-site bakery. The choices were a bit overwhelming. I wanted to try everything. The collection of dried flower included over fifty different strains. We had our choice of infused pre-rolled joints, disposable vape pens, gummies, chocolates, brownies, tinctures, waxes, shatters, hash, and even cannabis-infused beverages. The only drawback is that it’s illegal to transport cannabis across state lines. We couldn’t bring anything home with us.

I finally got to explore Philadelphia

Selling faucets and bathroom fixtures for a living is not exactly a thrill-ride. It’s a fine job, to be sure. The pay is decent, I have full medical and dental benefits, and the schedule never changes. On the other hand, there has never been one interesting day at work, it’s always exactly the same. To break the boredom, I always jump at the chance to attend the big national fixture industry trade show. This year it was held in Philadelphia, which was exciting for me because it’s a place I have always wanted to see firsthand. Philadelphia is so rich in history, I was eager to attend this trade show… just so I could blow off most of it and tour the city instead. There are few places in America with as rich and important a history as Philadelphia, home to many patriots and birthplace to a revolution! With that in mind, I was stoked to also find out that cannabis is legal in Philadelphia. I even found a historically themed cannabis dispensary that played up the political history of Philly. There was a mural on the outside of the cannabis shop depicting some of the greatest figures in Philadelphia’s history. It was a beat combination of fact and fiction, because some of these Philly icons were shown smoking cannabis. It was cool to see Ben Franklin ripping a giant toke from a cannabis bong, but I’m not sure it’s historically accurate or representative of Philadelphia’s past. I still took a selfie in front of the mural, just because it looked cool.

Insulating the attic improves energy efficiency

At one time, I considered the attic nothing more than a storage space.

  • Having a full attic provides the perfect location for clothing my kids have grown out of, photo albums, extra furniture, suitcases and Christmas decorations.

While I noticed that the attic tended to feel extremely overheated in the summer and especially chilly in the winter, I never gave it much thought. A little over a year ago, when the HVAC contractor was completing maintenance on the furnace, I complained about the cost of my energy bills. The contractor suggested several energy saving measures, including attic insulation. I had no idea if my attic was insulated or not. He said that the attic is actually designed as a barrier against the outdoor conditions. A properly insulated attic helps to reduce the workload of the furnace and air conditioner. Since warm air tends to migrate to cooler locations, an attic that isn’t sealed tight can lead to a great deal of energy waste. Living in Lee’s Summit, Missouri, heating and cooling are essential nearly all year round. We deal with temperatures in the negatives as well as the triple digits. The cost of running the furnace and air conditioner is considerable. An inspection of the attic revealed that the insulation was insufficient and had been degraded by rodents and moisture. I hired the HVAC company to tear out the old insulation and install new. I immediately noticed an improvement. The attic is no longer severely overheated or chilly, and there’s been a decrease in the cost of my utility bills.
