pocket-shot-arrow-kit-1

Back in September of 2015, I reviewed a pretty interesting take on the slingshot, The Pocket Shot. I thought The Pocket Shot was a good product not only for everyday adventure but also as a survival tool. I was aware of another add-on for The Pocket Shot that would allow you to shoot arrows using The [...]

Upright

Sometimes I find myself slumped in my computer chair and my mom's voice pops into my head saying "sit up straight!" It can become a bad habit to slouch for those of us who sit down at a desk all day.  If you want to strengthen your core muscles, lessen your back pain and increase [...]

Before I begin my review of the IQAir HealthPro Plus air purifier, I must disclose a few things. First, I am asthmatic. Most of the time I’m fine, but my symptoms can go from 0 to 60 at warp speed. Second, we live in Florida, home of perpetual pollen. Third, we have two large dogs [...]

rockwell_razor-1

I have used many types of razors in my life. They include the free cr@ppy plastic disposable ones hotels give out, the latest and greatest electric razors, fancy double-edge safety razors, and everything in between. As I have gotten older, I make the time and spend the money to pamper myself while shaving. Long gone are [...]

u-gym-pro-6

I've been dealing with tennis elbow for months now. The funny thing is that I don't play tennis. I've tried not doing any type of arm exercises during my workouts and that has helped, but when I was asked if I would like to review the U-GYM Pro TENS device, I thought I'd give it [...]

I don't snore, but I live and sleep with someone who does... or who used to. I dealt with interrupted sleep for years which made me grumpy and resentful to the person I cared about most in the world. I often thought about using a pillow to smother her during the night... just kidding... ok, [...]

instashiatsu-3

I'm a sucker for a good infomercial. My Lovely Bride is always scolding me when I purchase something wacky online or from TV. Lately, with the numbers of projects being released on crowdfunding sites, I've not had too bad a streak, though. So, imagine my delight when Julie offered the team the Insta-shiatsu massager. I [...]

cubii-3

My employer recently offered standing desks to employees. I was a bit skeptical about the supposed health benefits of this trend and after some research I discovered that there was little concrete evidence that a sitting-standing desk provides substantial health benefits. Soon after, The Gadgeteer made an under-the-desk elliptical by Cubii available for review.  I thought it would be [...]

avex-1

I've got a water bottle I've carried for about 5 years. I don't think I've biked anywhere without it since I bought my current bike. It's steel, has one of those pull-up spouts, and sweats worse than I do in our Southern humidity. So when the opportunity to test the AVEX thermal water bottle with [...]
