Of Sour Relationships and Dirty Tables…

There is something that is very profound when you clean up your personal living space. I found this blog posting profoundly moving and decided to share it with my readers and followers. Happy Monday everyone. Hang tough and don’t take any of this too seriously because life is too short.

A Fine Balance

There was something overwhelmingly disappointing about the movement of the sun that day, or perhaps it was the movement of the clouds, enshrouding the sun like a mother protecting her son from evil eyes. He stayed atop his bed, struggling with his breaths, taking turns between his sides, and this continued for long, for almost an hour, and then he finally made his way towards the balcony. It was supposed to be a balmy day, but then the things in his life, especially this year, were not particularly going the way they should have.

The balcony towards the left of his building opened to the vast stretches of naked land except for a few trees that seemed to adorn it. A rarity in the city that he lived in, where naked lands were soon claimed upon, dug, and transformed into multi-storied buildings. From the distance, and till where his vision…

It Is What It Is ~ Acceptance

Commentary On Life In The Moment by Mitch Santell

There are so many of us who are watching the divide of humanity, and we feel stuck.

The reason that we feel so stuck is that we remember how our life used to be and what it is now.

It all comes down to the heart.

In life there is your side of the story, there is my side of the story, and then there are the facts.

Guess what?

There is something more, and this awakening is a huge one.

Ready?

So much of who you are and who I am is intuitively related to the time that we were alive. 

How do I know this?

There is something that we all do when we awake.

We always want to defend our position.

Why is this wrong?

Answer:

In America, we use being right like a drug.

We need to be so right all the time to make you wrong which makes us happy.

It is about making the other person wrong.

Now that you know America’s biggest challenge, I need you to do me a small favor.

What is it?

Please be so kind as to indulge me in listening to this entire interview.

It may not change your life, it will give you clarity on where humanity is at in 2019.

L.A. California’s Big Trend: Visiting Bong Shops and Cannabis Growers

Commentary by Mitch Santell

The ability to look back at your history puts you in a unique place called perspective. For anyone who is a baby boomer (my generation) or others afterward, it still is a fantastic shift how common Cannabis is in California. What you are about to read is really happening, I didn’t make this up!

Happy Wednesday to all my readers and followers.

Elon Musk of Tesla Takes A Hit Off A Spliff

By Hugo Martin

The Los Angeles Times

In Napa and Sonoma, tour bus operators ferry wine lovers between tasting rooms and vineyards. In Hollywood and environs, they shepherd the starstruck past the homes of the rich and famous.

Now they’re giving customers a mind-expanding look at one of Los Angeles’ burgeoning industries: pot.

Since recreational use of marijuana became legal a year ago, a pot tourism business has emerged, taking visitors behind the scenes of California’s estimated $7 billion cannabis industry.

“Every other day it seems another tour company is popping up,” said Lauren Jones, who owns Weedology, a cannabis tour company based in Los Angeles. “It’s like a gold rush.”

Each pot tour company has its own points of interest, generally including a grow facility, a bong maker or accessory retailers and a marijuana dispensary, where visitors can get joint-rolling lessons. Expect product discounts, but not freebies. And some tours allow smoking on board, for those so inclined.

Tours are priced between $40 and $200 a person, depending on the length of the trip, the stops and other features.

 

Starting this month, L.A.-based Green Tours is adding an itinerary that includes a pot-smoking session with weed-loving ‘70s movie legend, Tommy Chong. That tour is priced at $149 a person, owner Gene Grozovskiy said.

Grozovskiy’s father thought his son was nuts when he announced plans to quit his full-time job as a patient placement coordinator at a large Los Angeles hospital to start a marijuana tour company.

“At first pops was like, ‘You want to do what kind of tours?”’ Grozovskiy, 35, recalled. “He thought I was just being silly.”

Other tour company owners also come with respectable pedigrees and want to hop on what they see as a profitable future in recreational cannabis.

Jones, who works as a resources specialist at Los Angeles Unified School District, launched Weedology tours in February as a part-time gig that she hopes can eventually grow to a full-time job.

Ed Legarda is a tech-industry consultant who started Green Line Trips in January. It primarily offers tours on the weekends but he also hopes it will expand to daily operation.

Cannabis tourism also has caught on in other places where weed is legal, such as Colorado and Nevada. It’s part of a myriad ancillary businesses that make up the marijuana industry, including compliance consultants, cannabis testing labs, ultraviolet lighting installers, security and transportation services.

The National Cannabis Industry Assn., a trade group based in Colorado, has nearly 2,000 business as members, with about 60 percent to 70 percent of those companies providing services that don’t involve selling marijuana, spokesman Morgan Fox said.

“We have seen an explosion of businesses related to cannabis,” he said.

Nationwide, the sale of cannabis directly or indirectly employed an estimated 170,000 full-time workers in 2017, according to a study by the Arcview Group, an Oakland-based firm for investors in the marijuana industry. That number is expected to grow to more than 467,000 full-time workers in 2022, the firm estimates.

Living Life As An Algorithm

Commentary and Reflections About Your Soul By Mitch Santell

Live A Positive Life, I promise you won’t regret it! ~ AfterHollywood.Online

We spend the first half of our life learning how to love and live life, and we spend the second half of our life saying goodbye to all those that we were closest too and loved the most.

The one thing that I know is the strength and power of kindness. The next thing I know is that there will be no sequel to your life, so you had better make every single moment count.

The thoughts in your head may not be your own so may I kindly you suggest that you read this entire blog entry before you tell me I am nuts.

Here is Southern California we have over 4 Million People living in Los Angeles.

For those of us who were around when Los Angeles barely had 500,000 People, we are still in a bit of shock.

What is Los Angeles like now?

L.A. County has 10 Million People, and Los Angeles Proper has 4 Million People. 

A lot of people overseas want to know when Los Angeles died.

Based on careful Algorithm analysis says the end of 1978.

Positive Aspects Of Social Media

Commentary by Mitch Santell

POSITIVE-IMPACT-SOCIAL-MEDIA-1200
Regardless of how much I have complained about Social Media here at After Hollywood.Online throughout 2018, I can say that I am like-minded with these social media rules for CEO’s so check this out.

8 Rules for Corporate Communicators

  1. Social media is a haiku.If you have a complicated point to make, don’t post on Instagram, write an essay like they do at Google.
  2. “La compagnie n’est pas toi” (to paraphrase Louis IV). The company is not you, unless your name is on the front of the building.
  3. If you blow up, don’t double down: When wrong, admit it and move on.
  4. If you’re not a politician, stay away from politics. I served on a board that had a former Mayor on it, and we let him do all the politicking. He was a pro, we were amateurs.
  5. Don’t hit “send.” It is the most dangerous button after the nuclear button on President Trump’s desk.
  6. Unless you are North Korean, you are a capitalist. Don’t act like your main objective in life is saving humanity if you make money renting spare rooms to tenants.
  7. Virtue doesn’t look good in Pradas. Unless you are a celebrity, social justice ranting is going to look strange coming from you.
  8. Shut up: No one ever complained about a post you didn’t write.

Hub.Life, A New Social Media Platform

Hub Life
Hub.life, a healthy alternative to facebook.

Comments that matter by Mitch Santell

After being off of FaceBook for months and months, I am now trying a new social media platform Hub.Life

Hub LIfe Statistics
Hub.Life Has Solid Numbers since there are over 1.2 Billion Websites Online.

Why Hub.Life?

  Mission Statement

You have a voice! You should be heard! Social media titans like Facebook and Twitter have a stranglehold on their users. They got people hooked on the massive platforms and then began to decide what content they were allowed to see, share, or post. Bottom line, if you don’t agree with their narrative, they will block, restrict, jail, and shadow-ban you. It’s time to fight back!

Hubbook’s mission is to provide an alternative social media platform, free from the barriers that are present in today’s massive networks. Unlike the tech-titan controlled networks who decide what people are allowed to see, Hubbook users are in control of their own experience.

People are encouraged to use Hubbook to make new friends in addition to connecting with current friends, family, and associates. Hubbook also allows page building to promote businesses, organizations, and ideas. Group creation allows communities to be built whereby people can meet, coordinate efforts, exchange ideas, or simply engage in a common fellowship. Direct messaging ensures personal private conversation between users.

While Hubbook maintains a code of decency, its creators do not violate personal privacy nor do they block real users from sharing information solely because they were reported by someone who was “offended”.

Aside from treating people with dignity and respect, Hubbook simply does not have a narrative to promote. So, come join the conversation and stay connected.

After The Chaos Of A Crisis Part 2

Happier Reflections Over The Holiday Season by Mitch Santell

Now I’m Smiling!

Back in May of this year I wrote about a 5150 crisis that I went through with my youngest daughter. If you did not have a chance to read the original post, here is the link:

https://afterhollywood.online/2018/09/26/after-the-chaos-of-a-crisis/

This Thanksgiving we have so much to be thankful, grateful and blessed when it comes to my daughter. Now that she is out of danger I am comfortable in sharing with you what happened since here healing.

One, my daughter never has to be on anti-depressants again.

Two, my Mrs. and me get to take care of her and she does not have to live in a group home.

Three, even though we had a 5150, the court investigator visited our home, gave us a clean bill of health  and we didn’t lose her. The court investigator was sincerely impressed with how well my 

After the court visited us we had our annual visit from my Daughter’s social worker. Currently, the lady who represents my daughter to the court has 400 cases and she openly explained that most of her clients have no family at all. 

The social worker shared with us that in her opinion her cases where there is no medication taken, do substantially better and function better.
