Bosch Dishwasher Not Draining, Leaving Standing Water after the Wash Cycle Completes

About 2 weeks ago we noticed that after the dishwasher finished its cycle, there was a larger than normal amount of standing water in the bottom.  There's always been a little bit of water that remained to be found when I'd pull the filter out to clean it, but this was as few inches above […]

How to repair a large sinking bathroom double-sink vanity mirror

Our large 8-foot bathroom vanity mirror over our double sinks started sinking on one side a few years ago.  Apparently, the installers didn't screw the bottom metal mounting bracket into the wall.  They simply sat the mirror into the metal guard and rested it on the back of the sink counter top and glued it to […]

The Least Expensive (Cheapest) way to get Belay Glasses for Rock Climbing!

UPDATED: 8/24/15 I can pretty much tell if a person's been rock climbing for a long time just by looking at their neck.  People who spend a lot of time belaying (looking up for a long time) develop this reverse "c" curve to their neck from craning their head all day while looking up at […]

Does recording video at higher bitrates allow for higher quality zooming resolution during post production?

I often record at the lowest bitrate on my Cannon VIXIA HF20 mini camcorder to save space.  The camera has multiple recording speeds with LP being the lowest bitrate and MXP being the highest.  MXP videos take up about 4 times the space as an LP video of the same duration.  For example, an 8 […]

GE 800 Watt Juice Extractor Review

Somewhere around a year ago, my wife and I were looking for entertainment via Netflix streaming on our Wii, and we ended up watching the documentary "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead", which is about some Australian guy who's got too much money to sit around and do nothing, so he decides to health up by […]

Words With Friends - Z words that won't work on Windows Phone 8

My wife recently purchased a Nokia Lumina 920 Windows 8 phone.  And while she can still handily beat me at Words With Friends, she now has a bit of a handicap.  It seems as though Words With Friends on her Windows 8 phone won't let her play quite a few words that start with the […]

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 […]

When purchasing a new washer / dryer set for your laundry room don't miss this important little detail

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 […]
