by Shelly_Wutke from 11-21-2014

crafts.jpgLet me set the scene for you. It’s 8 pm and I get home after a long day chasing small people to see the Cricut Explore has just been delivered to my house. I’ve been asked to test it out and write up a review, and I’ve been looking forward to it because I’ve never tried a Cricut before. Little did I know that my husband and I would be fighting over it and in 5 short days I'd be completely hooked. Read on and find out why everyone needs a Cricut Explore.

Walk into any convenience, grocery, or drug store and you’ll find no shortage of magazines whose covers feature scantily clad models and celebrities showcasing their rock-hard, oiled up abs alongside a headline that reads something like: “To get this body, all I did was drink more water and cut out sugar!” Well I’m calling <insert expletive> on that. Being fit takes work. Hard work. And it’s not necessarily all about obtaining those elusive abs. It’s about being healthy. And that’s why, to me, there is a wide range of “fitness enthusiasts” out there. So, at the risk of offending the people in my life, I’ve created a list of “fitness enthusiast types” and what gift might be a hit for them under the Christmas tree this year.

Review: The iSmartAlarm is an easy and effective alternative to Home Alarm systems

by paliontology from 11-10-2014

iSmartAlarmkit.jpgMany people I know have mentioned their fear of break-ins or theft—especially my friends with rental homes. But there's not much they can do outside of placing a broomstick in the sliding door, or hoping the deadbolts on their doors hold: they're not allowed to have an alarm installed. Nor would they want to permanently install a device in a place in which they will only be residing temporarily. There's a great solution to this problem now! The iSmartAlarm is a portable, yet powerful device that acts as a great theft deterrent using nothing more than a couple portable pieces of hardware, your wireless network and your smartphones.  I just had a chance to test it so click below to check out my review

ping.jpgPing Pong, or as my dad likes to call it “gnip gnop” (pronounced “geh-nip geh-nop”), wasn’t invented in China, as many believe, but came into being in the late 1880s in England when a group of upper class Victorian gentlemen created a version of tennis they could play indoors as a way to relax after dinner. At that time, the tools used to play the game were everyday objects, such as a line of books as a net, a champagne cork as a ball, and a cigar box lid as a racket.

Knives 101 - Different Knives for Different Uses

by StaceyMac from 10-29-2014

knives.jpgA few days ago I went grocery shopping, and as I was paying, the cashier asked me if I was collecting stamps. “Stamps for what?” I asked. “Stamps for new knives” she enthusiastically replied. To be honest, I’d never really given much thought to knives before. I mean, I have a set that I got when I first moved out many moons ago, but I took my stamp and went on my merry way. Later, I was flipping through the knife brochure that came with my stamp and after about page 6, I started thinking – why are there so many different types? What knife is for what? Do you really need 18 or will two do? As it turns out, you do! Here’s a breakdown of what makes one knife different from another.
