I Bet Captain Picard Used a Norelco 7700 to Shave

Philips Norelco 7700

  Only once in my life have I tried an electric razor before. I was in college and my roommate Dave always used it. He’d walk around the house talking to us while buzzing away at his face, pretty much anytime of the day. It just looked so crazy convenient, I had to try it. After […]

Win a Sonic Boom Tails’ Plane from TOMY (Ends 8/17)


While my kids are addicted to Nintendo, that doesn’t necessarily mean that our house is overflowing with Mario toys everywhere. Okay, fine, so it is. But they do like other characters as well, including that blue-furred hedgehog Sonic! We’ve got a slew of Sonic action figures and stuffed animals all around the house and when […]

I Cooked Up Some Pepperoni and Cheese One-Pot Pasta

Irish Spring’s Signature for Men Fights the Stink Big Time


This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.  #MySignatureMove #CollectiveBias I hate this time of year. It just really stinks. Literally.

Bum Bum Bumble Bee Bumble Bee SuperFresh!

Bumble Bee SuperFresh

My mom used to make tuna fish for us all the time. She’d get the regular dark kind though and switch around brands. But once in a while she’d surprise us and get the chunk white. Yeah, those were extra special taste bud party days. And it wasn’t just chunk white… it had to be […]

I Am So All-In on Applebee’s New Line of Burgers


Disclosure: I have partnered with Life of Dad and Applebee’s for this promotion. I have a friend name Mike. He was my first roommate after college. Now, besides being the hairiest person on the planet (that’s a post for another day), one thing about him has always stuck with me: Mike doesn’t like food in his food. […]

Everything I Know About Investing, I Learned from CASHFLOW


I’ll be the first to admit it. I’m not the smartest person in the world when it comes to investing money. Heck, the very first stock I ever purchased in my life was for Marvel. Sounds great now, sure, but not back in the early ’90s right before the company almost went bankrupt. No matter […]

Except, well… Allie and I have been quite familiar with SpongeBob […]

Celebrate in Style with Animated Digital Greetings


Back in college, my friend Dave became a vegetarian. It quickly rubbed off on me and my future wife (yes, that’d be Allie). I lasted a few years after college, but eventually went back to being a full-time carnivore. Allie lasted a lot longer, waiting until just before Jason was born. But Dave, well he […]

My iPhone 6 Loves its New Otterbox Commuter Series Case

Otterbox Commuter Series

I’ve been using my iPhone 6 for a few weeks now and totally love it. Despite the Verizon Wireless customer service fiasco I went through (I’ll have to write a quick update on that one soon!), I’m now real happy with my new phone. My biggest concern in getting an iPhone 6, though, was the […]

A Roaring Review of How to Train Your Dragon 2


If my wife cries three times during a movie, there’s a pretty solid chance it’s a good one. That goes double for cartoons. Yeah, we finally got to sit down last night and watch How to Train Your Dragon 2! Allie and I loved the first one and couldn’t wait to see the sequel. For […]

Review: KNEX 2-in-1 Ferris Wheel

KNEX 2-in-1 Ferris Wheel

I love the amusement park line that K’NEX puts out. It’s just really fun to build rollercoasters, Ferris Wheels and all sorts of other dizzy-inducing rides. And the fact they all tie together to a motor, just adds to the fun. I was recently sent the K’NEX 2-in-1 Ferris Wheel to take for a test […]
