The U-Files is a blog operated by Michael Pickard- a local artist, Uber driver, and friend of CTOB. We harvest our favorite stuff of the week from his site to share with you here every Friday.
1. He used to work for a floral store 20 years ago, and took over as the boss after the owner moved and fled from the IRS. He has no idea what happened to her.
2. I became a personal driver for the day. It wasn’t until I got to the parking lot and saw the thumbs up “Likes” symbol that I realized we were at Facebook. She ended up going to business meetings at Facebook, Yahoo, Linkedin, and Ebay. Some how she did this all in one day. Talk about efficiency!
Have fun and travel safe this weekend. Find Mike at www.U-Files.com and on the road.

This is the updated and illustrated version of the document that many people are calling a new Bible for agnostics. They're saying the old Bible sucks, and this one is way more direct and to the point and it doesn't rely on stories about magicians to convince you to be a good person. Hey- I'm not saying any of this stuff, many people are. I'm not one of them, so don't kill the messenger. I'm just saying it's a good little minicomic and you should buy one.
I'm a joint smoker.
Sure- I love a pipe, a bong, a vape, a dab, a crunched up Sprite can or a half an apple. I can smoke weed any which way. But if I can have my way, I'm going to smoke a joint 10 times out of 10. I'm a big time joint guy.
And I'm always on the look out for the perfect pack of joints. I've found a few that I like, and a lot that don't even come close.
A jar of Savor High CBD Raw Cacao by Whoopi & Maya, a box of Blue Diamond Chocolate Almond Milk, and a whole lot of love. That's an easy recipe for a cozy night of rest and healing in our house.
