Be Prepared for Power Loss—the Briggs & Stratton Q6500 QuietPower Series Inverter Generator

This is a sponsored post. Win A $500 Home Depot Gift Card from Briggs & Stratton…Read On… I was a scout at one time. Not the “talent” kind-of-scout, but the uniform-wearing-help-old-ladies-across-the-street kind of scout. I took away three things. The best places to collect aluminum cans to recycle. How to build some really fast pinewood … Continue Reading

2017 Father's Day Gift Guide for Dads and dad gifts

2017 Father’s Day Gift Guide – Gifts for Dad

Don’t skimp on gifts for your dad. He drove you places and he taught you things. Remember the time he somehow fit three 3-wheelers in the back of his tiny Ford Ranger and drove you an hour to ride on those sand dunes? Or how about the times at Wet ‘N Wild when he got … Continue Reading

FISKARS Gardening & Yard Care Tools

I’ve spent 3 years taming the overgrown, neglected 2-acre lot that came with my house using Fiskars (pronounced “Fis-Cars”) machetes and loppers. I’m a damn pro. I can dismantle saplings and vines before you can say “Jack Robinson”. I don’t even bother with a shovel for roots and junk either. I either use billhooks and axes and go to … Continue Reading

Kobalt 24V MAX brushless cordless power tools

Kobalt 24v Max Brushless Cordless Power Tools

This is getting ridiculous. We keep writing about Kobalt tools. This time it’s because we went to Las Vegas to cover the product launch event for the new line of Kobalt 24-volt Brushless Tools.

We’re nerd, geeks, whatever. And when the PureWash Pro showed up on our doorsteps all we had to see was a little slogan that said “A … Continue Reading

Lawn Fertilizer Challenge – Part 2

So this is where our fescue fracas ends. The results of Pete and I fertilizing half of our lawns, having the lawns look kinda dumb for a month or so, and seeing who grew the best blades. If you got this far and are like “huh?,” then check out part 1 here. If you got … Continue Reading

Last Minute Gift – Review of InstaBoost Car Battery Jump Starter

With the holidays sneaking up on us, it’s time to check your list twice and make sure you got everyone covered. If you’ve got some gaps there, we like to think the Dadand gift guides are a good place to start. Almost all of the stuff on the gift guides are things Pete and I … Continue Reading

Photoshop Elements vs. Lightroom

So you got your DSLR kit from the giant bulk-warehouse-club-store-thing. The one with all the lenses and attachments and memory cards and a case and a strap. And some little brush thing that you’re not sure what it’s for. And you certainly aren’t reading the manual for that. Anyway, fast-forward a few months, maybe a … Continue Reading

The Epson PowerLite Home Cinema 2000 Projector

You can’t convince me that when the phrase “home projector” comes to mind, you don’t immediately jump to thinking how great Back To The Future will look displayed on a 12-foot wall of your home, or an outdoor movie night, but when Epson asked me to figure out an interesting way to use its Epson PowerLite Home … Continue Reading
