Peanuts #24 is how an old school cartoon should age

by Daddy Mojo on December 21, 2014

There is this new all age comic book called “Peanuts”.  It’s the story of a group of kids, a friendly dog who thinks that he’s a fighter pilot and a curious yellow bird named after a 60’s rock concert.  Of course you’ve heard of Peanuts before, it’s a 60 year old comic strip that’s been made into holiday specials, numerous book and is classic.  What is surprising is how well-and effective the new stories in the Peanuts comic book are for new readers or old school fans.

Need to upgrade your photo tech? Best Buy has it all

by Daddy Mojo on December 19, 2014

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.  Even before I was a dad I loved photography.  It gave me the chance to chronicle my trips and travels.  Today’s new cameras make me thankful for the images I was able to capture and let’s my mind wander about the prospects of me travelling with a high quality digital camera.  There are lots of cameras at Best Buy, but they’ve got some storming deals on three of them in particular now; all of which I’ve played with and one that I own and use every day.  Plus all three are equipped with built in WI-FI.

The gifting trifecta at Best Buy this Christmas #HintingSeason

December 19, 2014

Regardless of where you are in the Bluetooth speaker evolution you will want to see the JBL Flip 2. Bluetooth, so it’s wireless and the JBL Flip 2 comes in four colors and has dual drivers and a bass port. The bass port is the kicker, literally. We’ve reviewed a couple of them and the difference is all about the bass, specifically the bass port. The Flip 2 also has a built in microphone for those times when you want to take a phone call.

With TuneIn I travel to Japan, France-anywhere, without leaving home

December 18, 2014

Now, just because you pick “French top 40” doesn’t mean that you’ll be listening to the 40 most popular songs in France now. Well, they’ll be popular in France, but given the worldwide nature of music, some of the annoying pop that you hear on American radio will still be there. However, even in those cases they’ll be mixed in with golden nuggets of uniquely European music selections. It’s different, shakes up your radio senses and is really enlightening.

Shoot to save, with the Cannon EOS Rebel T5i at Best Buy this #HintingSeason

December 17, 2014

I’ve shot with a Cannon Rebel EOS and it is very user friendly. The camera is soup to nuts everything that you need in a digital camera. You can capture movie quality HD video-and this is the key part, those videos remain in autofocus while you’re taking the HD video. Sure your camera shoots HD video, but you have to manually focus the lens, which is…tricky to say the least, especially when kids are your focus.

Our #LeeGoodDeed challenge with Lee Jeans was win/win

December 16, 2014

After an hour of running, climbing, swinging and more we headed out to our next event, a gingerbread house decorating competition. Well, competition isn’t the right word because all the kids had fun with gingerbread houses, plate crafts, seasonal photos and far too much candy.
At the end of this 6 hour play session we took our two borrowed kids back home. It was a busy half day, but my legs felt great. Was it the Lee Modern Series and the fact that they feature Active Comfort Denim? Maybe it was the fact that I couldn’t rest, coupled with caffeinated tea and the Lee Jeans?
