Dad already has that kind of wrench…well…hey, this one auto-adjusts. Add it to the collection. Why does anyone need another sander? “Because this one’s … 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.

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
