Independence Day is one of my favorite times of the year. The picnics, barbeques, fireworks, parades and spending time with family and friends make it a day of great fun. In remembrance of our freedom, I decided that for the next few blogs leading up to July 4th, I will post some stories that give us a historical background as to how some things in America came to pass. Today's story: The Birth of the Fourth of July.

Independence Day also known as 4th of July is the birthday of the United States of America. It is celebrated on July 4th each year in the United States. It is the anniversary... Read More

Famous last words of a boy who is headed out to play in the mud with his ol' man. We both knew before we left the shop to head down to the creek that there was a 100% chance that we would soon be wet and muddy. But, let's back up just a bit. This past Sunday I had plans with my son to go ATV riding down at the creek. We have been putting it off because where we like to go has been under water for the last few weeks. When we went to go look we were pleased because it appeared to as if the water had began to run off. So, we thought it was okay to go riding. For the most part most, the areas... Read More

Bought a new home recently? Planning on starting a garden? Well, before you begin, please, I implore you, heed my advice: whatever you do, do not, and I repeat, DO NOT buy any peppermit starters at your local garden center. And, God forbid, don't buy the seeds! Trust me on this one! If you didn't live so far, I would invite you over on a Saturday afternoon for a 'work-outside-day' in my garden and show you WHY it's such a bad idea to grow peppermint in your garden.

Let me start at the beginning, ten years ago as a matter of fact.

Once upon a time, I married my soul mate.... Read More

Mico says it's "music inspiration from your subconsciousness." According to the founders, Mico frees a user from having to select new songs. With Mico the headphones detects your brainwaves, searches for music from its database and then selects songs that match your mood.

Sony's Action Cam comes with integrated Wi-Fi, slo-mo modes and waterproof casing. It's anamazing an piece of equipment though what I've always thought was missing from this Action Cam is the ability to see the world from my dog's point of view.

Well, it seems as if someone agrees. Sony's Action Cam, thanks to the soon to be released AKA-DM1, will enable you to mount the Action Cam to your dogs' back and truly see action through your dog's point of view. Clearly for the curious dog owner, the AKA-DM! is a harness that hooks over and then around the dog's body and has a mount for the... Read More

It makes complete sense that Ralph Lauren, the iconic fashion brand, purveyor of an extensive line of personal and home accessories from colognes, and shoes, to towels, sheets as well as the owner of a chain of restaurants -- for when home just doesn't feel that comfortable and you just "have to" to let others see your latest RL clothes -- also wants to make certain the pup in your life is living a life of luxury.

These acro-cats cross tightropes, wobble on rocking horses, on the top of mirror balls and even deign to get their paws dirty with a little comedy at the Moscow Cat Theater. The theater, founded by Yuri Kuklachev and his son Dmitri in 1990, stars 120 felines and a few human catch watchers, reports the Daily Mail.

"The animals feel good and each of them has found its place. That's great because it shows that the atmosphere here is favourable for them. We have more than 120 cats in total. We haven't brought all of them here. Step by step we will be bringing them in. Soon we'll have a... Read More
