Well, those lazy summer mornings have come to an end. No more dragging my feet and waiting until mid morning to get the kids dressed and make breakfast. We now hit the ground running at 7am sharp! I want to try and get on top of things around the house so I have decided to come up with a household schedule. Continue reading Kick It into High Gear
As the summer is winding down and the kids are starting back to school, our family continued our tradition of ending the summer with a week on the beach. Grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins all take the week off and head over to the beach for a wonderful week of relaxing, good cooking, fun, sun, laughter and memories. Continue reading Moments to Cherish Forever
If I were to make a list of my most favorite things, mopping wouldn’t even come close to making the list. On the fun scale from 0 to 100, it’s a 0. But, unless you have wall to wall carpeting over every square inch of your house, it’s a necessary evil. Floors need to be mopped; you might as well use a mop that makes the job easier. As a stay-at-home-dad of 5, I need as much easy as I can get! Continue reading The EasyWring Lives up to its Name
I’ve mentioned before, I enjoy coffee. Ok, actually I love creamer and caffeine but who’s really keeping track. While that coffee does wonders to get me going in the morning, it doesn’t do any favors to my teeth. I’ve noticed over the past few years that my teeth have gotten a little bit yellower. This can often be highlighted by the fact that one of my top front teeth is porcelain and isn’t subject to the same discoloration as my real teeth. That can sometimes cause my teeth to look more yellow by contrast. Continue reading Million Dollar Smile
As I celebrated the 4th of July with my family I reflected a bit about the current state of the world. I am blessed to be able to live in a country where I’m still relatively safe to go about my day however I want and I get to enjoy countless freedoms that many others aren’t able to. Continue reading Declare Your Independence
I had the privilege of reviewing a car battery booster by 1byOne several months back. I was thoroughly impressed by their product so when I had an opportunity to review 2 more products by them, I jumped at the chance.
The HDTV Antenna works great to pull in any over-the-air tv broadcasts that are available. Yes most people have cable, myself included, but there are plenty of reasons why having a high quality antenna around is a great idea. For one, you never know when your cable might go out. This doesn’t happen often but just last week our cable went out right before the NBA playoffs were about to come on. Thanks to my backup antenna I was able to watch the game with no issues.
As someone who goes RVing and tailgating semi-regularly I also understand the importance of a good antenna in those situations where cable isn’t an option and lugging around a satellite dish is inconvenient.
As many American’s continue to “cut the cord” a quality antenna is a must. In case you didn’t know “cutting the cord” or “cord cutters” refer to people who do not have cable or satellite TV. They watch TV via the internet or internet subscription services (Hulu, Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc) and antenna. Before we lived in our current home we didn’t have cable for a while and it wasn’t that big of a deal. Currently our HOA fees include cable, so I take advantage of it since I pay for it regardless.
If you are looking for an HDTV Antenna I can highly recommend this one by 1byOne.
The second product I got to review was the iPhone/smartwatch docking station. This thing is sweet. It’s aluminum and just looks cool. Not only does it charge iPhones but it can charge iPads too. The smartwatch stand has a special cutout in the back that allows the cord to snake up behind and the watch to lay flat with the cord hidden. It’s a very well thought out design.
There are also 2 additional usb ports on the back so you can charge 2 more devices as well if you want to. The whole thing, from top to bottom, is incredibly well designed.
So if you’ve got a mess of cords sitting on your nightstand or desk and you have a smartwatch this is absolutely something you need to look into getting. I have been impressed with it and with everything from 1byOne that I’ve put my hands on. They are an innovative company that produces quality products.
If I know anything living in Florida, I know heat. And with the summer in full swing we need all the help we can get to maintain our cool. So when Culer offered to send me an evaporative cooler to test out, I was stoked. I am all for anything that helps me stay cool.
I’m sure the first question you have (I had it myself actually) is: What is an evaporative cooler? I’m glad you asked! Continue reading Beat the Heat with Culer
