Delicious Foster Farms Spicy Chicken Wings and Crunchy Fries in the Nuwave Oven

I love my Nuwave oven – I make no secret of this.  In fact, when my in-laws gave me my first Nuwave oven for Christmas several years ago, I doubt they expected it to become my all-time favorite kitchen utility.  I use the Nuwave oven for quick and hearty meals, late night snacks & appetizers, toasted sandwiches and pretty much anything else which strikes my fancy. Prior to owning a Nuwave oven, I was never a…

McDonald’s Toy Can be Used as a Stereoscopic Viewer for Virtual Reality Apps!

McDonald’s Toy Can be Used as a Stereoscopic Viewer for Virtual Reality Apps!

Did McDonald’s just give us a cool little stereoscopic viewing device, free with recent Happy Meals?  Why yes, yes they did!  When I first saw this strange little device, I didn’t know what to do with it – this is because we discarded the first set of viewing cards that came with the device.  My assumption was that it was some sort of magnifier tool for reading, so imagine my surprise when my daughter shows…

Our first “Sandwich Saturday” was a success! Sack lunches for the homeless provide an excellent learning experience for my young daughter.

Our first “Sandwich Saturday” was a success!  Sack lunches for the homeless provide an excellent learning experience for my young daughter.

“Sandwich Saturdays” seemed like a great idea! My wife and I have been kicking around this idea for years – spend a few bucks on the essential basics, whip up a bunch of sack lunches (in the same way my own Grandma used to make a balanced sack lunch for my siblings and me as we were kids) and distribute them amongst the local homeless population.  While the plan seemed simple enough, we continued to put it…

Perler Beads – why they are important for kids (SLIDESHOW!)

Perler Beads – why they are important for kids (SLIDESHOW!)

As a child, I remember making little bead images with Perler Beads, having my Grandmother iron them, and then doing nothing with them. What is the point of this? Now as an adult, married with 2 boys (and a 3rd on the way), I am realizing the importance of what seemed like a frustrating waste of time. My boys are 6 & 7 years old, and this is the PERFECT project for them!! They are…

Batman: Dead End – the Fan Film You MUST See!

Batman: Dead End – the Fan Film You MUST See!

Dude, this thing was made in 2003….  You’re a little late to the party. Yeah, I know I am about 12 years behind the curve on this one….  Doesn’t matter.  In fact, the elapsed time since the introduction of this stellar Batman “fan film” makes this post even more relevant – enough time has passed where most people either haven’t seen it or have simply allowed it to slip off their radar. Consider this a…

She Makes it Look So Easy – A Big “Thank You” and “Happy Mother’s Day” to My Awesome Wife!

She Makes it Look So Easy – A Big “Thank You” and “Happy Mother’s Day” to My Awesome Wife!

Ask any person who does not have kids how their life would  be different with a child, and I guarantee you their answer would be grossly inadequate.  The reality of the situation is that no amount of planning or conceptualization can adequately prepare a person for what lies in store for them the moment they bring a small, helpless little human being into this world, and accept full responsibility for said human with all the seemingly endless…

What is DTG Printing, and Why is it SO Awesome?

What is DTG Printing, and Why is it SO Awesome?

The days of simplifying your artwork to meet your budget are over!  No longer do the general masses have to settle for “dumbed down” versions of their incredibly crafted designs, and no longer do they need to order a hundred shirts (or more) to be taken seriously!  DTG printing arrived on the scene in its infant stages over 6 years ago, and has spent the last several years being tweaked, prodded and modified until it…

If you loved Power Rangers as a kid, you will love this remake…. If you hated Power Rangers as a kid, you will still love this remake.

If you loved Power Rangers as a kid, you will love this remake….  If you hated Power Rangers as a kid, you will still love this remake.

Very few television shows were as iconic to an entire generation as the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers TV series, produced by the prolific kid-friendly-pseudo-kung-fu-character-manufacturing-machine that is Saban Entertainment between the years 1993-1996.  Of course, the original spawned no less than 17 subsequent spin-off series which ran for many years (with new projects still in discussion), as well as a couple of movies (which were basically just long versions of a standard TV episode, with more Zord screen time)….

Humanity is Generally Good: Part One

Humanity is Generally Good: Part One

Considering what we find in news reports every single day on a global scale, it is easy to fall into the proverbial rut of despair – at times we begin to believe that humans, by nature, are evil (or at the very least, incredibly self-serving) creatures, capable of inflicting great suffering on those around them.  At times, this is accurate.  There is indeed a great amount of evil in the world, and we cannot deny…
