Are you one of those types of people that obsesses about your weight? Are you always counting calories and reading the nutritional content on the foods you eat, before you take a bite? I’ll admit that I share some of those traits. I don’t obsess about my weight, but I religiously check labels before buying food. I was diagnosed as being pre-diabetic over a year ago. As a result, I’m very conscience about the carb / sugar content in my food.

Update: Shortly after this review went live, Mack Lipkin M.D., an NYU professor and the Director of the Division of Primary Care in the Department of Medicine at NYU, was kind enough to write me. I am honored that someone with his credentials actually reads my reviews, and I am grateful that he took the
You probably never imagined that drinking your morning cup of coffee or tea would give you the ability to display your Gadgeteer spirit, did you? I mean, besides a coffee maker, what type of gadgets could a gear-head use to help with that first blast of caffeinated goodness? How about a special mug that can
I’m lucky in the fact that I don’t have a problem with back pain (I’m knocking on wood as I say that…). However, I happen to know four people close to me that do: my Dad, my roommate Jeanne, her brother, and Judie’s husband Steve. For them, anything that might help alleviate their pain, would
I’m a cat person, who turned into a dog person, and who is now a dog person trapped inside a cat person’s body. I know that was kinda hard to follow, so let me try to explain… When I was a kid, I was 100% a cat person. This is probably because we never had a dog the whole time I was growing up. We had a big Black and Grey tiger striped cat named Pepper. He was an outdoor cat that only came
inside to eat and hang out. At night, he went right back outside; we
didn’t have a litter box for him in the house.
Unlike those people that can tell when a storm is approaching by the ache in their knees or by the call of a rain crow, my meteorological abilities usually only manifest about thirty minutes before the storm hits – when I can smell the rain in the air and once I have heard the rumble
A few years ago I suggested to my Dad that he purchase a WebTV box so that he could surf the Internet and send emails. Not being very computer literate, I thought this would be a good solution for him. It turns out that I was wrong. Mainly because the service was slow (dial up)
It’s the sound that most of us dread to hear. That bleep bleeep bleeeeeep that jars us out of our peaceful dreaming slumber into the stark reality that is school, our job, etc. It’s a resolute individual who can bound out of bed to face the new day without cursing the alarm and pressing the
A couple years ago, we had a hot water pipe spring a leak under the sink of our upstairs garage apartment. We had no idea that the leak had occurred because there wasn’t an obvious drip down the inside walls of the garage. In fact, there was no warning at all. Had we discovered the
As most of you that have read any of my LED flashlight reviews know, there is a long dark hallway that runs down the spine of my home. While this hallway is fabulous for taking pictures of a flashlight beam’s reach or for hanging a mini art gallery, this same hallway used to give my
In my never ending search for the ultimate cool clock, I have stumbled upon the C.I.D Colored LCD Clock from Brando’s Watch site. From the description on his site, this time keeper appeared to be right up my alley. Funky, small and chunky. My 3 favorite adjectives when it comes to describing almost any gadget.
My search for the ultimate alarm clock has led me to American Innovative’s Neverlate 7-day Alarm Clock. Although this clock radio was designed with the busy college student in mind, I thought it might have the right set of features to earn a permanent spot on my bedside table. As the name implies, this clock
It is a known fact that home office floors are the perfect environment for spaghetti breeding grounds. Not Italian spaghetti, but cable spaghetti! Just look under your desk and you’ll see exactly what I mean. Need a real example? Then check out these pictures of just a few of the items that I have in
Product Requirements: A DC cigar lighter / power port or a DC converter (for home/office use) Can you remember back when the first (somewhat) affordable portable travel coolers came out? Sized like conventional ice chests, these devices would keep food and beverages either hot or cold by using a vehicle’s DC power port. At the
If you are a child of the 60’s & 70’s like I am, you probably remember the Lava Lamp. Heck, maybe some of you even still have one on a shelf somewhere! The original motion lamp was designed by engineer Edward Craven Walker in 1963 and was named the Astro Lamp. Then in 1965, it
