Marijuana Fields Found in the Nevada Mountain

Aug 26

This is the 1st big case of hidden marijuana farms. The Federal forest agents started removing the fields of pot  from a Nevada mountainside in Wednesday. According to U.S. Forest Service The farm was nearly  3 or 4 acres.

The marijuana was planted there a couple of months ago. The officials found the farms from the air and planned how to remove it from the difficult area. The pot was hidden between the trees  near a zone full with tourists.

“It’s hard to sneak up on (the farms) and it’s easy for them to disappear.” said Kent Bitsko.

In California state  there are a lot of marijuana field on public land, but in Nevada they weren’t very popular. A trainig was made on nearly 20 Nevada officers, about how to detect outdoor pot farms. The Officials from  Sacramento has helped with the  training.

These farms are a new challenge for the Nevada’s police. It is possible the owners to be armed  and dangerous for the Nevadas tourists, who just want to relax in the woods. And not only the people are theten, the native plants can also be harmed by the pesticides applied during the marijuana growth.

How to Beat the Black Mondays

Aug 22

hate_mondaysOh it’s Monday … Again! I have this strange feeling and it’s not only me, A millions of people feels the same way once a week. For me it starts when Sunday evening comes. I have this awful feeling – the Monday is coming and all of the madness starts again. People, who hate Mondays, call it a different ways. I just say “Mondays Sucks” and wait until it’s gone.

If you’re one of these people who hate Mondays, I’ve got to tell you the BIG secret … The Monday is going to come back exactly 7 days later and you can’t do nothing about it. I know it’s depressing but you have to get over it or not its your choice.

5 Ways to Beat This Awful Monday Mood

1. The research shows that usually people don’t begin to smile before 11:16 am on Mondays. This means that we work almost 2 hours without even try to smile. Some morning youtube funny videos could fix this easily. For me the funny cats always help.

2. At Mondays we work hardly 3.5 hours during our 8 hours business day. Most of the time you’ll drink water, coffee or anything else but working. This means that you have to work extra the other 4 days catching up. It’s good to know that this is normal.

3. You have to take your mind off of this boring day? Just watch some TV – your favorite sitcoms probably will make this day looks much bearable.

4. It’s already proven, the Sex beats the depression ;) So Why don’t you start your Mondays that way – works perfect!

5. Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate … mmm one of my favorites weapons … It beats the stress and depression, also helps for good mode.

How to Choose the Best Local Contractor for You

Aug 20

remodeling contractorRemodeling your home is not an easy job. You have to plan very carefully every part of it.  When it is a big project it is  almost impossible to organize everything.  Fortunately there is a contractor for everything you’ll need and it is great relief to know that. You can even hire a general contractor who will  manage the whole process. From the planning and performance till the cleaning after the job was finished.

But for excellent results you’ll need a reliable contractor who can count on. It is not enough just to call some local 411 service and hire the closest or the cheapest one. This is a person who you’ll invite into your home and assign him a project, which is very important.

Here are some “Headache” saving tips from me.

  • Check the Insurance and Licenses

First you have to check that the remodeling contractor
you choose is bonded, licensed, and insured. Your contractors should be able to  provide copies of their licenses, and you could check these licenses with  the proper state agencies.

Note:”Proper licensing and insurance doesn’t guarantee that your project
will be completed to your satisfaction, but it’s important part”

  • Quick  E-research

This is really effective way to find out what actually people think about the chosen contractor. Because on paper everything  could be fine but actually – not exactly. You could just write in google “Company Name complaints” and you’ll see all of the unhappy customers. Websites like rip off report are made exactly for this kind of clients.
Note: “Be aware that some of the complaints could be written by the competitors”

  • Ask your neighbors

This is one excellent way to choose easily and fast. who made a remodeling soon and ask them about their contractors. Were they happy with them? Had they any problems? Were there any delays?
Note: “It doesn’t mean that when your neighbor likes this contractor, you’ll like him too. That’s why the personal meeting is very important.”

  • Personal Meeting

At the end do not forget to meet your contractor personal before you hire him.  It’s important to be sure that he sees the project in your way. Every single person has a different personality, It would be easier to work with somebody if you like his point of view and cheracter.

This is the way I choose mine contractors and for me it works excellent. ;)
