Living in a house is great. But there are some things that can certainly be annoying. Repairs, maintenance, and general upkeep of the home can be costly. However, the most irritating thing about living in a house is having someone come to your door to try and sell you something you have no interest in.


This spring, I have had my fair share of people bothering me while I am at home wanting to sell me something. Pest control, solar panels, and the most recent, hordes of roofing companies after a hail storm. Many people work from home this day in age and an unplanned visit by someone knocking on the door or ringing the doorbell can cause a loss in productivity.

This Local Colorado Mexican Restaurant Is One Of The Best

After opening in 2008, Las Palmeras Mexican Restaurant has become one of the area's very best locally-owned places to get delicious, and authentic Mexican food. We found this place by accident years ago while driving hungry down Main Street in Longmont and have been regulars ever since. The owner, the staff, the food, and the drinks are all top notch and that's what makes this one of Colorado's top choices for delicious Mexican food.
