Hey Brandon – you say you are a “security adviser” (note misspelling) for HostGator – and I say you are just a scumbag scammer trying to prey on unaware bloggers. Shame on you – and HostGator – which have been trying to gouge their long time clients for extra cash for “security measures”.
Screw you Brandon and screw you HostGator – you both suck balls! (and should be VERY ashamed of yourselves).
Find a real way to make a living instead of preying on unsuspecting website owners.
FYI – Hostgator has not hosted any of my many domains for a long time – you scammers fucked me over once, but never again. #BoycottHostgator #HostGatorIsTHEWorst #WorstHostingCompany #EvenWorseThanGoDaddy

Industrial Hemp Close to Legalization
The U.S. is poised to lift its 80 year ban on industrial hemp and things are finally moving as the Senate has decided to conference on the historic 2018 Farm Bill to work out disparities between the Senate and the House’s versions of the bill. The Senate’s version of the Farm Bill contains the Hemp Farming Act which would remove industrial hemp from the federal government’s schedule of controlled substances, while the House version is silent on hemp.
Hemp Farming Act of 2018 is sponsored by Leader McConnell and co-sponsored by a bipartisan coalition of more than two-dozen Senators, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. McConnell, who introduced the Hemp Farming Act, put himself on the conference committee; his inclusion on the committee is giving advocates and industry leaders hope that hemp legalization could happen as soon as Labor Day.

US Cannabis Coalition Adds Support from Rock Legend
In what may come as a surprise to some, notorious anti-drug rock legend Ted Nugent joined the US Cannabis Coalition, endorsing the legalization of Medical Marijuana.
Nugent explained his USCC participation saying “Look, I’ve never been a fan of brain dead stoner types, but science has proven that medical marijuana can and does help a lot of serious illnesses like cancer and epilepsy”.
Sorry for the lame, rambling video, but it’s been a long time since I’ve checked in, but I wanted to introduce the newest member of our family – Ava Kalea …. Read More …
How to Celebrate 420
Today is 420 / April 20, 2016 which is an unofficial international holiday for stoners. Many weed smokers around the world will celebrate 420 by smoking pot (marijuana) throughout the day – but especially at 4:20 on 4/20.
Today I celebrate 420 by being thankful that more and more governments are allowing their citizens to make their own choices concerning cannabis. I do not think that government needs to tell people if they should smoke the ganja – or not. I believe in FREEDOM of CHOICE.
Since my personal choice to quit smoking marijuana, I’m also able to celebrate 420 by taking a “Wiz Quiz” or “piss test” aka a drug screen. In reality, waiting in a room filled with other people who have to pee in a cup is a totally lousy humiliating experience. One I never want to have ever again ….
Some people will celebrate 420 for the last time today – and then decide to quit weed. If you need help quitting weed, I fully recommend Seb Grant’s program that has helped a lot of people understand more about their problem with the ‘evil weed’ – and how to better deal with it. It will cost you less than a week’s worth of weed for most tokers – and can help change your life for the better.
Let me hear from YOU! How did you celebrate 420?
I haven’t posted here in quite awhile, as I have been busy living life. Still the same, people continue to subscribe on a daily basis – proving to me that there are others looking to quit smoking pot.
This is my personal update on not smoking weed. Unfortunately, not all is well (although there are a lot of positives).
Thank you for visiting this site – and especially to all those who are looking to make positive changes in their lives.
Its the simple things. Take care of those and the big things work out. Stay in the moment and live one day at a time. That’s what I’m trying to do: take pleasure and satisfaction from attention to detail and be mindful of exactly what I’m doing and what I’m trying to achieve. To help yourself, help other people. A win-win situation, and that’s what you’ve got to do.
In 1996 my 16 year old nephew was dumped in my lap. I got a call at 1 AM to drive out in the middle of nowhere and pick him up because the family he was living with was throwing him out. I remember driving along a country road, full of muddy potholes, that was quickly narrowing to a goat path. I picked him up and took him back to my place. He was a mess: taking lots of drugs and about to drop out of high school. I had no choice really, but I wasn’t mad at my brother for leaving me with his child. He did what he did and taking up the slack was something that had to be done. To cut to the chase my nephew stayed in school, eventually got his PhD and is now drug free and a professor at a major university making pretty good money. But I can see in him mistakes I made that I don’t want to make again.
Now I have another child to help: my 8 year old grandniece. Her parents are too busy swilling beer and watching reality TV to really pay attention to her. They ignore her and the fact children just want to know that someone cares about them. All humans do. A lot of parents don’t realize how much effect they have on young minds. So I’ve taken the job of being her answer man, and this job is very important. I’ve learned to just stick to the basics: give her a solid framework to build on. Universal truths and not opinions. The circle of life and how things run in cycles. And have fun fishing salamanders and crayfish out of creeks, looking at how they work, and returning them. Making sure she knows to avoid the claws. I’ve set up an aquarium and stocked it with several types of fish and snails. She can see the snail eggs appear, the tiny embryos develop, the babies hatch out, start their lives and grow into adult snails. And the inevitable empty shell at the bottom of the tank that slowly dissolves to provide calcium for the living snails to build their shells.I also have a place where I pile up all the grass clippings and it is filled with earth worms. I thought she’d think worms were gross, but she loves them. So we go out and dig up worms. We are also doing some experiments like making rock candy. She can see the crystals grow, and at the end they’ll make a tasty treat. And regular trips to the park so that she can play with other children, get some exercise, and perhaps make some new friends along the way. Mind and body-another universal truth.
That’s what’s going on with me. Just trying to get better, do better and feel better. Its working one day at a time.
