shoe-hickies-laces

When my daughter was learning to tie her own shoes, we found some stretchy shoe laces that made it a bit easier for her to get her shoes on her feet without her having to loosen/tighten her laces, too.  The older lady who lived next door wanted some of those laces so she could get [...]

Chewbacca Bath Robe

Another day, another awesome Star Wars item.  Today's offering is a hooded, 100% polyester robe that suspiciously resembles everyone's favorite Wookie.  Although I'm fairly sure it's not a licensed LucasFilms (Disney?) product, it looks pretty accurate, complete with Chewie's bandolier stitched across the chest (front AND back) and large pocket to mimic Chewie's pouch.  A [...]

I'm not a man and don't wear neck ties, so I don't know how much suffering has been going on out there as far as ties that flap in the wind or hang haphazardly on your chest. I'm sure it's a tragic condition and for that fact I'm going to offer you the Magnetie solution. [...]

The Scrubba Washbag Review

Any traveller will know the dilemma of balancing the right amount of clothes with the additional weight and space required to carry those clothes.  When bushwalking you're extremely limited with how much you can carry on your back, when motorcycle touring you're constrained by how much you can fit into a tail bag or pack.  [...]

The winter has arrived and temperatures are dropping across the northern hemisphere. For those of us that live in a cold climate and love our gadgets that means having to take off our gloves to use our touch screen devices, leaving our precious digits exposed to the elements, or does it?

I often complain (some will say whine) about the fact that I can't control my capacitive touch screened smartphone in the Winter months, when I'm wearing gloves. As we know, capacitive touch screens will only work when we touch the screen with our fingers. That's because the human body has a natural bioelectricity in our [...]
