The Pixie Dust is Flying Over at Netflix

Disney is pretty darn special. Sure there's Mickey, Minnie, Goofy (my mom's favorite!) and the gang, but for me, it's more about the non-core Disney properties. Marvel. Star Wars. The Muppets. In the hands of the House of Mouse, some of my favorite characters have really reached new heights. I already love all the Netflix-exclusive Marvel series like Daredevil and Jessica Jones (and know I'm … [Read More...]



Hair FutureYou

Some Real Hair-Raising Advice for 20-Year-Old Me

Time Travel hurts. If you think too much about it, you'll end up pulling your hair out.

Now while I can't head back in … [More...]

#JustBecause

You’ll Never Guess What I Put in My Iced Tea for a Healthy Snack

I'm a snacks guy for sure. Chips, pretzels, crackers, you get the idea. If it's crunchy and there's salt, I'm all over it. I know, those really aren't what you'd call healthy snack ideas. But I've been making slight changes over the year. Months ago I stopped drinking soda cold turkey. Now it's … [More...]

5 Things I Hate About Flying

I travel a fair amount for work each year. I'm regularly hopping on a plane from Newark, NJ to places like Scottsdale, Arizona. Seattle, Washington.  Orlando, Florida. Chicago, Illinois.

Grooming 101: My Kids Think I Stink

According to my kids, I stink. No, I didn't send them to bed without any supper. Didn't take away their Nintendo privileges. And certainly didn't make them go outside and get some fresh air. Uh uh. My kids say I stink and they mean it literally. We're talking grooming issues here, … [More...]

7 Canine-irific Netflix Shows to Help Celebrate National Dog Day

Woof! Yes, it's National Dog Day today! Now while that's certainly something to bark about, I'm a little sad that we don't currently own a dog. Not yet at least. But as someone who grew up with a cute li'l Shih-Tzu named Muffin (Shush. I had no say in naming him! I wanted to go with Gowron!), … [More...]

How Jimmy Dean’s Good Breakfast Saved My Life

Even though I'm a big fan of a good breakfast, I'm just not a morning person. Not by a long shot. Never have been, never will. Unfortunately for me, work starts at 9 am. And despite some great negotiating skills, I still can't convince my boss that work should start at 11 am. So I continue to be … [More...]

The Simple Secret to Getting Paid for Using Your Computer

A penny saved is a penny earned. Yeah, we've all heard that before. And you know what? Sure, while it's true, I can't think of a single thing you can buy for a penny. Not one. However, if you say this mantra every day, you're talking about 30 cents a month. No biggie. Say it every hour (even in … [More...]

Nintendo’s Original NES Returns!

I'm an old school gamer. If you know me, you know that the Atari 2600 is still my all-time favorite system. But over the years, I've had dozens of different consoles from the original NES to the Sony PlayStation to the Xbox One and loads in between. I've pretty much loved them all. Now, besides … [More...]

Mario & Sonic at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games Giveaway

There's been a lot of talk about Rio these days. Lots of controversy with Olympians bowing out of attending the 2016 Olympic Games for a variety of reasons. Who knows what will end up happening and who will be taking home the gold? Whatever the case, I know my family will be glued to the TV … [More...]

Sweet! We visited the PEZ Factory in Orange, Connecticut!

While on our way back from a family wedding in New Haven, Connecticut, I convinced Allie to make a stop in the city of Orange. We had seen a billboard on I-95 for a PEZ Visitor Center and I was most definitely curious. Jason LOVES PEZ. With his nut and seed allergies, it's tough finding sweets he … [More...]
