If you don’t want to click away from this engaging post, then I’ll summarize how awesome Sugru is… Sugru … Continue Reading

SentrySafe Big Bolts Safe Big Giveaway

Sentry®Safe is launching a new product category called Big Bolts and asked me to give one away. The safes are awesome. I know this for two reasons. 1. I know their products inside and out. 2. Everything SentrySafe makes is awesome. You might say “You’re just saying this because they gave you a safe to giveaway”, and you’d be totally … Continue Reading

Hog Pen

A while back my oldest son wanted a pet and we decided that he was ready for the responsibility (or at least learn about the responsibility) of keeping his very own living, breathing entity. I now flash back to age 3, and his first pet. A goldfish. Guess. It’s name was Dorothy. She was found…uhhh…“sleeping … Continue Reading

Dad Gift: Whiskey Disks

They’re soapstone disks you keep in the freezer and put in your drink (whiskey, or whatever) instead of ice. A simple enough product but something I never thought I needed before, until I got some. I’m not necessarily a straight-whiskey or scotch drinker, but I do like to have me some manhattans on occasion. The problem … Continue Reading

Men are from Mars… you know the rest

I think everyone’s heard of the “Men are from Mars” book. It was a household name back in the early 90s, one of those things that became part of the vernacular. “Duh, you know what they say… Men are from Mars bwah haha” Blech, whatever. Guess what?

One of our favorites is the “Altered Product Packaging”. It can be just for the hell of it, it can be for a prank. All you … Continue Reading

Phantom Vibration Syndrome

You know the feeling. You’re walking through the mall and you feel your pants vibrate and clutch at your pocket for your phone like you have some kind of disorder only to find there’s no text, no call, and it’s not your turn for Words With Friends. WTF was that? It was Phantom Vibration Syndrome, my … Continue Reading

Death of a pet

“Daaaa-aaaad, something’s wrong with FELLOOOOOW”. UG, I cringed. “Fellow” is/was Julia’s fish. She just found him dead. Every single possible scenario rushed through my head. Was there going to be screaming, crying, pleading, hysteria, questions about mortality and life and death? Let me back up. Fellow actually died 3 times. Fellow 1 died 2 weeks … Continue Reading

Wordless Wednesday

Is Wordless Wednesday a real thing? Who started it? Why do people do it? What does this teach our poor, poor children? Are we just giving up on original thought and going along? Is it because everyone else is doing it? If everyone else jumped off a cliff would you? Apparently so.

Rockabye Baby!

From their site: Rockabye Baby! transforms timeless rock songs into beautiful instrumental lullabies. Guitars and drums are traded for soothing mellotrons, … Continue Reading
