Start Cyber Monday Right With

I spend a lot of money online. A lot. But I would spend even more if I didn’t have to pay for shipping. I thought that if a website charged for shipping, that’s was it, you had to pay it. But then I found out about, which allows me to shop without paying for […]

Back In My Day Permanent Records Weren’t Permanent

Excuse me for a moment while I tuck my walker under this table and make sure my dentures are in straight. I’m about to take you on a trip back in time, before the internet, and social media, and cell phones (and cell phone cameras). Before impulsive mistakes were able to travel the world and […]

The Subtle Racism Of Fox News’ Coverage Of Ferguson

I have a weird habit that after big, divisive events I watch Fox News. Sometimes when something like last night happens I look at what other people in my life are saying about it and wonder if we live in the same universe. And then I remember that a lot of them are only getting […]

I’ve lived in the same neighborhood since 2002. That’s twelve years of going to the same diner.

However, that doesn’t mean that I want to get out measuring cups and spoons on a Wednesday morning just […]

Comparison Shop At Local Stores With Price Patrol

[The following post was sponsored by Price Patrol.] There have been so many times in the past when I’ve needed something right away – a gift for a birthday party I’d forgotten about, an item I needed for a project, or something that I just didn’t want to wait on for home delivery. If I’d […]

You Had ONE JOB, FedEx

You sit on a throne of lies. As I understand it, FedEx’s job is to get packages from point A to point B in a reasonable amount of time. They have failed at this SPECTACULARLY this week. I’ve had many, many packages stolen from outside of my house in the eight years that I’ve lived […]

10 Cool New Tech Products Available Now, Plus One Amazing One Available Next Year

Last night I attended Wine Dine & Demo, a consumer tech showcase. Also a place for tech media to get drunk and eat a lot of food – that’s the “Wine” and “Dine” part. Between the Eggplant Parmesan, cannoli, and Diet Cokes, I managed to see quite a few interesting products that are available for […]
