Wilting Agave Died From Weevil Infestation

One of my agave plants wilted and died from a Weevil (a type of beetle from the Curculionoidea superfamily) infestation.  Below is my story of how I discovered that Weevils had caused my Agave to droop, yellow, decay at the base, and subsequently die.  I also explain how I protect and prevent my other Agave plants from […]

Buying A New Home From A Home Builder May Not Be What You Expect.

The Best Big-O-Tires in Las Vegas

I previously wrote an article on how to get a discount on tires in Las Vegas without even needing a Big-O-Tires coupon by calling around to a couple Big-O-Tires asking for each one to give me their best price. I ended up going to the Summerlin Big-O-Tires (10127 W Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89135) near […]

Big-O-Tires Las Vegas Discount - No Coupon Necessary

I'm amazed that I can call 3 different Big-O-Tires here in Las Vegas and get 3 very different prices for the exact same tires!  Doing so always allows me to find a better discont than I could possibly even do with a great coupon. Our Hyundai Santa Fe just hit 70,000 miles, which is 10,000 miles over the […]

Red Rock Climbing Gym

One of the reasons I moved out to Las Vegas was because I really enjoy rock climbing.  Its funny, but when I first had a friend try to get me to try climbing, I refused.  I was probably about 23 at the time.  I thought it was ridiculous.  Why would anyone want to climb rocks?! […]
