Is This Sort of Thing Safe?

Thursday, March 30th, 2017

I have been thinking about this ever since I ran into this guy at a party a couple of weeks ago. He was smoking this herbal smoking mix in a pipe, the sort of one that you see people smoke pot in. The truth is that some other people were smoking it because they thought it was pot, but I could smell the stuff and I could see that they were really not getting happy about the taste of the stuff. In fact I could not really stop thinking about all of the stuff you read in the papers about things that they call bath salts and synthetic marijuana. (more…)

We Got a Great New Dog

Monday, March 20th, 2017

Of course we started to think about this as soon as we bought the property. It is not exactly in the middle of nowhere, but you can not see the nearest house. It is about an eighth of a mile away and there are not many others. At any rate we decided that we needed a big dog, the sort that would deter anyone with bad ideas. I paid a lot of money for it, she is a German Shepherd with great bloodlines. The guy sold me the dog and a doghouse bed that works pretty well. I liked it because it gives the dog a place to lay down which is up off of the floor. It is a puppy now, but it is pretty big for a puppy and it is going to get even bigger. So you do not really want it on the rugs and the carpets so much. (more…)

A New Chair Minimized My Back Pain

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

When my doctor told me that my back problems could possibly be due to my office chair, I immediately asked him which kind I should get.

I had no idea which one to get though, so I went online as soon as I got home to see if I could get more information. It wasn’t that my back pain was that severe, but it was bothersome enough for me to want to try a new chair out quickly.

I was able to find a site that reviews a wide variety of products, and I was happy to see that reclining office chairs was one of them. (more…)

A Scale with Unbelievable Durability

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017

Worrying about things like concentrated load capacity is a pain unless you work with the scales in the trucking industry. I even have drivers who don’t seem to care about weighing their trucks and loads. They see it as a necessary evil on the way to earning their paycheck. In fact it’s one of the most important things we do here at the company. I spend my entire day weighing our fleet before they hit the road. It’s done because of trucking industry standards and the laws governing now much weight we are allowed to put out on the roads.

That is why it is absolutely imperative that the company invest in a durable and highly accurate scale. (more…)
