Sewell Hammerhead VGA to HDMI Converter Review

I have looked for a solution for a long time to connect my laptops to my various TVs.  I have avoided buying converter boxes because I simply didn’t want the hassle of buying yet another device to go in my entertainment center and then have to fish the cables out when I wanted to move …

Amplicom TCL 200 Digital Alarm Clock with Wireless Vibrating Pad Review

Once upon a time, a locomotive train ran through my son’s bedroom and he didn’t wake up.  Well, maybe not.  But if a train ever did run through his room he wouldn’t wake up.  Perhaps you have a family member who would fall into that category because they sleep so hard.  We have tried a …

Technocel Powerpak Review… an adult juice box.

When my kids were younger, I spent vast amounts of money on juice boxes of all kinds, because when a kid is thirsty you gotta have some juice that’s easy to deal with “on the go”.  Trust me, spill a sippy-cup of Apple juice all over your car seats and you’ll be making a bee-line …
