The world is changing and so are the actions and interests of majority of people. One of the hottest topics is the legalization of cannabis. I lived in Colorado for about two years following the legalization, and from what I saw, there was less crime, less accidents, and more people able to relax, fight pain, and have a peaceful time. Finally, after decades of anti-propaganda conditioning, majority of the populace understand the truth and things are changing. What comes with such a monumental shift in substance politics? A whole lot of very cool stuff. Read on as I break down one of the newer inventions for recreational and medical use.
Traveling the world takes a lot of planning, and money, and often leaves one choosing what’s comfortable and functional over what looks best. Traveling in style often means you’re adding weight to your pack, by carrying imperfect luggage, or by adding a lot of extra items that aren’t truly necessary. When I travel, my aim is to have everything I know I will absolutely need, and little else, so rarely do I take an extra pair of shoes or clothing simply because it looks good. More often than not, I must cut corners and focus on what will lighten my load. But every once in a while, I discover a piece of luggage that can fulfill both my needs and wants.
There are a few iconic items every writer and author needs to make their mark on the world: A worn leather briefcase, a fine authoritative suit, and a unique and high quality pen. Perhaps I’m old fashioned, and maybe I’ve read and looked up too much to Hemingway, but I think every successful writer, at one point in their career, realizes there are a few items that every scribe should have and use. I recently came across the perfect leather briefcase, though I am short a fine suit at this time. And up until the other day, I still used cheap dollar-a-pack pens, but no more thanks to my friends over at Karas Kustoms.
In the market of travel gear for pets, few products stand out as being truly innovative. Carriers are usually rectangular, made of hard plastic, and rarely consider the needs and wants of the cat or dog inside. Wouldn’t you be scared if you had to fly in the storage area of a plane, in an uncomfortable plastic box? The options were limited for pet owners, until SleepyPod began producing their mobile beds for pets.
If you’re a citizen of the US, you likely understand how big of a pain black flies can be, because once late summer hits, they become a plague. We have them here in Ohio, but when I lived in Colorado, they were insane and everywhere, and no matter what I did, they would just keep multiplying. Fly swatters aren’t the easiest way to take care of a pest like the fly, but there is an easier way. A way that’s more humane than poison or gas, and way less grueling, disgusting work than a swatter. And a whole heck of a lot more fun.
When I must travel for strictly business, my heart saddens and my mood sours a bit, but when I can incorporate a side trip or two, or five, then I suddenly go from sourpuss to a little kid on christmas. I want to do anything and everything, yet there’s always a restriction on time, so I must identify what it is I want to do and experience. On most of my trips, I am traveling for me, and for you, dear reader, but when I’m tied to a business obligation, I’m unable to wander and discover those wonderful, yet lesser known gems of the world that I love to find. I must keep it short and sweet. So when I’m planning a side trip, I figure out what it is what I want to do, or an experience I’ve yet to have in my lifetime. Those are the two options that I weight, almost every time. And this is, of course, dependent on where in the world I am traveling to.
