AGEISM: Getting over the hill means a new high for many of us, but now it’s legal (Well, in October) and just to show the younger crowd we are on top of it…we were writing about cannabis on our website more than two years ago…the medicinal use, the medical benefits. We are always watching out for the older crowd. In this case, legitimate benefits of cannabis and how your doctor can become your pusher!

NOTEZILLA …. we have praised this app so much, visitors must think we have a major share in the company. Not true. It’s really a premier program which we just love the application and you will too if you make notes while you work on the computer. But if you just play on the computer, well, have fun. This app is a productivity app, to be used for making one more productive and more efficient. It isn’t a gimmick or a frivolous program. It’s meant for those who use the computer for serious work rather than entertainment and fun.
Free to try for less than a buck a beer per week promised by the premier.    FREE TRIAL
