Is Childhood Fun Being Sued Out Of Existence?

If you’re new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! This morning Fiona and I were watching GMA over breakfast when a story came on about towns banning sledding due to fears about liability. She immediately said “I was hurt sledding!” Four or five years ago we were in […]

This Is Why I Don’t Do Resolutions

Today is the first Monday of 2015. This morning the kids went back to school (Fiona excited, Jake mock-crying. At least I think it was mock), Omer went back to work, and I had planned to attack the day, the week, heck, the whole year with a vengeance. But last night, I couldn’t fall asleep. […]

A Bluetooth Keyboard For Multiple Devices

Do you find yourself switching frequently from one device to another with a bluetooth keyboard, having to reconnect each time? Like, say, from an iPad to a phone and back?

A Great Little Projector For Travelers and Frequent Presenters

Into The Woods: They Didn’t F$%K It Up

When To Put Duracell Batteries Into Gifts…And When Not To!

[The following post is sponsored by SheSpeaks and Duracell.] When I was a kid I loved gadgets (nope, nothing has changed!). If it was on my Christmas list, chances are it made noise, lit up, moved on its own, or all three. And for sure it needed batteries. Batteries that we never seemed to have […]

Brookstone Shiatsu Neck & Back Massager With Heat Review

I love a good massage. I’ve gotten more professional massages than I can count. When I’m done with my manicure and my nails are drying, I move over to the massage chair to be rubbed and kneaded while my nails dry. When I’ve got more time I go for the on-the-table naked “real” massage. I […]

The Best Gift For Any TV Lover

[The following post is sponsored by TiVo, a company I love and am thrilled to be working with.] I’ve been lucky enough to work with TiVo for several years now, but my relationship with TiVo goes back much further than that. I remember reading a little article in a magazine – just a few sentences […]

A Take Anywhere, Water and Shock Proof Bluetooth Speaker

At this point there are so many portable Bluetooth speakers on the market that they all begin to blend together. They pretty much all have Bluetooth connectivity, rechargeable batteries, and a jack for connecting non-Bluetooth speakers.
