You know you’re in for some quality when a diaper bag is part of a collection.  The Metra diaper bag from JJ Cole Collection is all quality, packed with pockets and has a long enough strap to easily slip over your head and around your shoulder.  That’s the way cool dads wear the diaper bag.  It looks like they’re a bike messenger except you’re delivering diapers, wipes or snacks for irritated small people.

We love our garden, even though we don’t know everything about it and often lose more than half of our tomatoes, we love it.  There are also blueberries, raspberries and a couple other edibles in there, but their loss is usually greater than 50%.  Bugs can help me with this and this weekend Pike Nurseries is having a free class to educate folks about the good bugs that can help our gardens.

Naptime DIY: How to replace a garbage disposal

April 21, 2014

Getting the job done quickly when you’re laying down under the sink with 5” to work is important towards doing it right and not frustrating you in the process. Both of these things came into play when we A. had the incorrect Phillips screwdriver and B. did not unscrew the green ground screw prior to placing it under the sink. We spent 20 minutes trying to figure out why the screw wasn’t getting loose, resting our shoulder & arm and then looking for the correct size screwdriver.

The Raid 2 is a brutal, intense film that action/karate fans will enjoy

April 20, 2014

I knew that The Raid 2 was violent, but I was unprepared for just how violent it was.
How can a movie so violent be enjoyable? The artistry in the car chases and fight scenes in the silat martial arts sequences are amazing. The final fight sequence is art, albeit with knives, punches and lots of broken windows. The fight sequence in the back of a taxi with five grown men is claustrophobic. How they can sit in the car, much less fight is something you’ll wonder when you see it.

Angry Birds Toons-Season 1, Volume 2: review and giveaway

April 17, 2014

Just like there is something visual in each episode that makes it work the music is different for each. The music sometimes starts with the Angry Birds theme song and then seques into similar music that matches the scene. It is like the way James Bond has the iconic music and then blends it into the weave of the rest of the soundtrack. Listen carefully and you’ll ear bars from movies that have parallel themes in the story.
