Well folks as expected we made it through 4/20 without any related deaths or violence… while I don’t smoke the herb I feel that it has it’s uses and is much safer and more effective than most everything that the medical doctors push on their patients.
According to business insider’s research there are 23 Health Benefits Of Marijuana – it’s sad when the government bans and regulates a plant that has so many benefits with few negatives, yet you can find a liquor store on nearly every corner…
Even more puzzling is that according to CDC reports:
Excessive alcohol use led to approximately 88,000 deaths and 2.5 million years of potential life lost (YPLL) each year in the United States from 2006 – 2010, shortening the lives of those who died by an average of 30 years.
This isn’t counting deaths by alcohol related accidents like car crashes – and lets not overlook relationship problems and divorce with the root cause being excessive alcohol use. But I digress…
Before we get started with this weeks “what did you do to prep” I’d like to thank Mr Bill D for his contribution via snail mail – every month he contributes $25 – it is appreciated.

Okay, now what did I do to prep this week…
This week I planted two dwarf pear trees, and two black berry bushes. I also started building more shelving in my storage area and received my copy of The Backyard Homestead Book of Kitchen Know-How: Field-to-Table Cooking Skills.
That’s it for me this week (no money for more) – what about you… what did you do to prep this week?
