Playing chess in Denver, Colorado

I have never taken chess very seriously, but have a natural talent for it.

People who play chess are usually very dour and thoughtful, not prone to conversation or jokes.

I have never fit in with other chess players. Unfortunately I have to spend a lot of time around them, because my natural skill for the game often places me in high-stakes matches and tournaments. If you are good enough at chess you can make a living at it. This is what brought me to Denver, Colorado, for the annual chess event called the national championships. The main reason I went wasn’t for chess at all, but because I had wanted to visit Denver for a long time. Where I live the political atmosphere is dominated by religious conservatives, so we don’t even have legal medical marijuana yet. I knew that Denver had legalized recreational cannabis, so I didn’t need a doctor’s note to get high. I signed up for the Denver chess tournament to have an excuse to explore Denver and sample some of its famous cannabis strains. Who cares if I won or lost, the trip to Denver itself was a big win for me. It turns out that I am a better chess player after I’ve smoked some cannabis. The Denver dispensaries are out of this world, and after a few hours of smoking cannabis, I actually did very well in the tournament. Best of all, I was able to purchase a large amount of cannabis from one of the Denver dispensaries and have it shipped back to my home.

I found the most delightful cannabis cafe in Portland

There are ten thousand food blogs on the internet, but none of them were quite like mine when I first started. The last time I checked Youtube there were fifty new channels and vlogs dealing with cannabis cooking, but I was the first! One of my reviews was actually printed in High Times Magazine, which is a pretty big deal. These days I stay on the road a lot, touring from city to city and soaking in the local culture while I sample the local cuisine. My speciality is writing about cannabis cafes, and my last stop was in Portland, Oregon. Although there is not a lot of history to the traditional cuisines of the Portland area, there is a ton of history about cannabis. Not to mention that Portland is a trendy, high-end city that attracts a lot of progressive young people, which means molecular gastronomy is very popular here. It seemed plausible that the best cannabis cafe in the world would be found in Portland… and indeed it was! I have visited no less than 40 different cannabis cafes across this great country, but the one I went to in Portland was definitely the best. The food was so tasty, I never realized how much cannabis and CBD had been infused into every dish. I was far too full and stoned to drive home, so I had an Uber drive me around the downtown Portland area for an hour while I sobered up. The entire experience of my time in Portland was remarkable, and I can’t wait to go back.

Do they have marijuana in Muskegon?

Although marijuana was legal in Muskegon, MI, there were laws that differed in other areas, but basically followed the same rules as all of Michigan.

I had been in jail for almost three years for possession of marijuana when the state passed laws to make marijuana legal. Shortly after I was released, I couldn’t believe that the same thing I was in jail could be bought and consumed in several places in Muskegon. They had marijuana establishments, and I saw signs for a pot party. I thought this was wrong, and I voiced my thoughts. A friend of mine told me I could check into the expungement law and see if I was eligible to have the marijuana charges taken off my record. This would not bring back the four years I spent in prison for the possession of marijuana and marijuana paraphernalia. I walked into the marijuana establishment and asked if I could have an application. When I was honest about the prison time and my marijuana charges, they didn’t say a word. The manager helped me fill out the application and asked when I was going to file to have the charges expunged. We discussed all the new laws, and he asked if I would take some classes. Although marijuana was legal in Muskegon, MI, there were laws that differed in other areas, but basically followed the same rules as all of Michigan.

The local Seattle legend of the wendigo

In the annals of local lore and legend, the story of the Wendigo is one of the scariest.

  • This is a tale that dates back before Europeans came to this part of the country, and long before it was incorporated into the USA.

The Wendigo is a tall, thin creature, often depicted with antlers, that needs to eat humans. The story goes that if anyone ever tastes human flesh they will be consumed by evil and slowly transform into a Wendigo, forced to haunt the woods forever looking for sustenance. I am a college professor in Seattle who specializes in local legends and ancient lore. I have found the Seattle bay area to be filled with dozens of such amazing tales from the past. I have also found that Seattle offers the widest selection of cannabis strains that I have ever encountered in person. Some of these Seattle dispensaries are the size of a Walmart, and contain tens of thousands of cannabis products! I am a regular smoker, but I find that the wrong kind of cannabis will get in the way of my work. My passion is the lore and history of Seattle, so I need a cannabis strain that will help me focus, and not make me feel tired. Recently I gave my lecture about the Seattle legend of the wendigo, and one of my students said I should film it as a Youtube video. When I told the student that Seattle had a lot more fascinating legends to explore, he said I should start a whole Youtube channel.

I loved going ice fishing in Illinois

At the time, my family owned about eight hundred acres worth of farmland in the southeastern edge of Illinois.

Since then the land has been divided up and sold off in parcels, but at the time it was a huge swath of corn and soybeans. About two miles away from the farmhouse, through a long and winding trail through the crops, was a small pond. During the summers we could fish or go swimming, and in the winter we could set up the rickety old shack and go ice fishing. In this part of Illinois, ice fishing was an annual event. We even had neighbors from other farms who came over to go ice fishing in our pond. If you have never experienced an Illinois winter, then consider yourself lucky. There were times when the snow was so thick on the ground, piled up six feet high, and we couldn’t even make it to the frozen pond! But when we could, it was an amazing time! Ice fishing in Illinois is one of the best memories I have of being a teenager. We would smuggle out a few cases of beer, and a few ounces of locally grown Illinois cannabis, and spend a few days in the fishing shack on the pond. If we caught any fish we would usually cook them up and eat them on the spot, because we had consumed too much beer and cannabis to safely get ourselves back home. Although it’s best to avoid winter in Illinois, I highly recommend trying out ice fishing there.

Hiding out from the law in Las Vegas for a few days

First of all, don’t believe everything you read in the news.

Yes it is true that there was a warrant out for my arrest, but no, it wasn’t because of anything scandalous or violent.

I had committed some light fraud, and bounced a few checks, but it wasn’t like I hurt anyone! Nonetheless, my name showed up in the newspaper as being “wanted” by the cops, and my friends and family all lost their minds. I did what anyone would do in my situation – I packed a travel bag, cleared out my checking account, and hit the road for Las Vegas. If I was going to have to go to jail for a few weeks, then I wanted to go out with a bang, so what better place to do that than Las Vegas? I didn’t even bother checking into a hotel, I went right to the first Las Vegas cannabis dispensary I saw and loaded up. From there I hit a liquor store, and then made my way to one of the off-brand Las Vegas casinos. The Las Vegas Strip is the place with all the lights and glitz, but for a serious gambler like me there are much better places to play cards. Instead of renting a hotel room I rented a parking space, because I knew I wasn’t going to be getting much sleep while in Las Vegas. I lived in the casinos, burning through my money quickly, and popping out to the car to smoke cannabis and have a drink every couple of hours. Eventually, I had to face the music.

My AC did not want to work right Saturday

I had to call an AC repair service on Saturday, because the AC in the office was not working properly.

I was in the office all day trying to get the last of the yearly paperwork completed.

My office is at the back of the building and I have a single ductless AC unit inside of the room. There is no other way to cool the air or have a breeze in the back of the building. A couple of my employees were out front working on fulfilling orders while I was in the back office getting the paperwork completed. I was going to use a tax accountant to handle all of the paperwork, but I have so much time at the end of the year that I thought I would handle it on my own. When the AC unit broke down and stopped working, I knew that I had to call someone immediately. I contacted a Phoenix AC repair service. I have a repair service on auto dial on the phone in my office. The repair service is the same Phoenix business that installed the ductless AC unit last year. The owner of the business was happy to schedule an appointment for service, but he did not have anything available for the same day. He could get to me on Sunday or Monday, but there were no other appointments available for saturday. Since I couldn’t get the Phoenix AC repair service to the building to fix the machine, I decided to go home early. I didn’t want to waste any more time being warm and uncomfortable.
