The Magic of Mullein: Cowboy TP & More!

To many of us living in this beautiful little corner of Colorado Mullein is a fairly common sight. It can be recognized by its distinct towering rod-like stem that has an incredibly soft feel to its leaves and flowers. It’s no wonder it earned the name back in the old west as Cowboy Toilet Paper. This might come in handy if we keep seeing the toilet paper keep flying off our shelves! Most of the time we pass the plant by,...

As the great Bon Scott of AC/DC said, “it’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock and roll.” Touring really has its ups and downs. I mean, you’re in a 6-person marriage living in a van.
