Out and About – Week of January 15th

You don’t need to travel far to find a “Pot Shop”. It’s legal to use cannabis here in Michigan and several other states, although the Federal Government doesn’t agree.

Out and About – Week of December 18th.

Winter officially begins this Thursday, December 21. This is my favorite day of the year, because on this date, the days start getting a little longer.
