Inexpensive crate mat solution for our dog's cage; a bed she hasn't chewed up

Every time I go to a pet supply store, I am absolutely amazed at the prices.  The price for something simple like a cushion for a dog cage is about twice the price of a similar item meant for people in a regular store (i.e Walmart, Target, etc). For example, when we first picked up […]

A few years back I bought our house by short sale. The owner had quit making payments, had moved out and somewhere along the way, by the time I purchased it, the house was stripped of a few appliances. Included in the missing appliances were the clothes washer and dryer.  So we had to purchase […]

DERMagic Skin Rescue Shampoo Bar Review

We rescued our dog Keena from the Lied Animal Shelter here in Las Vegas about 3 years ago. Though her paper work stated she was roughly 4 years old (i.e. fully grown), we quickly found out that wasn't correct as within a year, she doubled in weight from around 27lbs to 54lbs. When we first […]

Red Rock Climbing Gym

One of the reasons I moved out to Las Vegas was because I really enjoy rock climbing.  Its funny, but when I first had a friend try to get me to try climbing, I refused.  I was probably about 23 at the time.  I thought it was ridiculous.  Why would anyone want to climb rocks?! […]

Fixing the sticking Diswasher Detergent Dispenser (Bosch SHE4AP06UC/06)

About every six months the door of the dishwasher detergent dispenser that is supposed to open during the wash cycle starts sticking shut.  Our dishwasher is a Bosch model SHE4AP06UC/06, but I assume this happens on most machines.

It took me two days to solve an electrical problem my wife could have solved by breakfast!

My wife is out of town for a few days and though I might be over-exaggerating because I miss her, everything seems to be falling apart. The most recent blow cam when I went to get something out of the fridge in the garage. I opened the fridge to find that it wasn't very cold […]

FastTech.com Review - Ordering iPhone 5 "Lightening to USB" cables directly from China

A couple months ago I dropped my iPhone 4 for the last time. It was the perfect drop that not only shattered the screen, but hit at the perfect spot to completely kill the touch screen sensitivity. So I took the opportunity to upgrade to the iPhone 5. And along with the phone upgrade, I […]

Hotel Oceana in Santa Barbara Review

My wife and I spent the weekend in Santa Barbara visiting friends who live there.  Our friends suggested a few hotels their parents like to stay at when they are in town, but we decided to Priceline a hotel the day before instead. I was hoping to get a real nice 4 or 5 star […]

I get Groupon Goods emails all the time for products that look like a they are great deal if you solely look at the pricing that Groupon gives on the promotion page. But often times I do a quick Google search and find out that not only is it possible to get a similar deal […]
