Touchstone Living - Las Vegas Home Builder Review

My wife and I purchased a new home from Touchstone Living, a privately owned Las Vegas home builder, in June of 2015. Our house is just North of Lone Mountain on the North West side of Las Vegas. From what I've gathered (via email addresses and conversations) Touchstone Living is some sort of subsidiary of Mariner […]

Big-O-Tires Las Vegas Discount - No Coupon Necessary

I'm amazed that I can call 3 different Big-O-Tires here in Las Vegas and get 3 very different prices for the exact same tires!  Doing so always allows me to find a better discont than I could possibly even do with a great coupon. Our Hyundai Santa Fe just hit 70,000 miles, which is 10,000 miles over the […]

Should I put solar power on my roof here in Las Vegas, Nevada?

A few months ago, my wife and I moved into our newly built home on the North West side of Las Vegas, not too far from Lone Mountain (I need to write an article on why we moved out of Summerlin; Please leave a comment if you'd like to read why). We finally sold our old […]

How to repair a rounded (bullnose) drywall corner that has a big dent in it

About 6 years ago, I bought my first house and interestingly, one of the first issues I saw when I first walked in was there were dents in the rounded / bullnose corners in the front entryway. To my (now) wife's dismay I never fixed the dents.  But when it came time to sell the […]

Paula Poundstone - Live Stand-Up Comedy Review

Back when I was a kid, I used to watch a lot of late night comedy shows on broadcast tv (we didn't have cable)... well I'd actually record them and watch them the next day as I wasn't allowed to stay up late enough to watch them when they aired. I even dubbed my favorite comedians sets onto […]

Learning to negotiate with a builder on a newly built home in Las Vegas

My wife and I signed to buy a house 12 hours ago and I’m wide awake at 3:30am tossing and turning not with buyers remorse but with negotiators remorse. I say that because I learned a ton doing this transaction that I wish I had known before our negotiation yesterday, and though I got a pretty […]

Removing Moen Bathtub Valve with a Broken Stem

My wife and I both work full time, and with a 2 year old, we don't have time to clean our house ourselves anymore.  So we hired a local Las Vegas cleaning service (review to come soon) that comes every two weeks to clean our house.  The cleaners love to break things and then balance […]

How to get Sirius/XM Satellite Radio for under $5/month

I have been a Sirius/XM customer since I purchased my Hyundai Santa Fe over 3 years ago.  With the purchase of the car, I was given a free trial of XM (they hadn't merged yet). I don't remember how long the free trial was for, but when it ended I was to start paying whatever […]

Summerlin Pumpkin Patch: Las Vegas @ Flamingo & Grand Canyon - Review

My wife and I visited the local "Stu Miller's Pumpkin Patch" in Summerlin Las Vegas on the NW corner of  Flamingo and Grand Canyon today with our 20 month old boy.  We had a good time walking around taking pictures in the pumpkin patch. We had a fun, but our boy was too small to […]

Costco 14" Primifina Novaform Gel Memory Foam Mattress Review

Our 5 year old Simmons Beauty Rest spring mattress recently hit the end of its practical lifespan.  My wife was no longer comfortable as it really sagged at our waist areas, and the amount of turbulence when one of us rolled over in the middle of the night would wake the other up. Unfortunately, mattress warranties […]
