Empower Yourself With the Scars R Sexy Movement – Share Your Story Today

Some scars live on the surface. Others run real deep. And while some people think their scars are just plain ugly, Amy Tippins is out to prove that scars are anything but. In fact, she thinks they're downright sexy. No this isn't a "painful" post about a dominatrix or even Fifty Shades of Grey. It's about believing in yourself and letting your experiences strengthen your resolve, rather than crush them. I recently got to know Amy through a mutual friend (Thanks, Samantha!), and I have to say, Amy is one super tough cookie. After suffering through a painful and abusive childhood, she went through a successful liver transplant. Thanks to the medications she's on, ...

Smiles, Assemble!

Allie  just came back from shopping at Target. We chatted about a few things and I casually asked her if she hit Walgreen's by chance, since they're having a special offer for a Free Bobblehead with the purchase of The Avengers DVD. She merely rolled her eyes and continued our conversation. Then she told me to grab that Target bag and bring it downstairs for her. Yep, sure enough, inside was a Blu-ray copy of The Avengers! My wife rarely fools me but this time I was happy she did. Captain America and Company are in the house! With 90 minutes of bonus footage! Who has the bestest wife in the whole ...

Brace Yourself for the Aporkalypse: A Bacon Shortage is Coming

I have some horrific news to share. No, it's not about politics. Nor disease. Nor blind referees who can't make a correct call in a football game to save their lives. No, this is much more serious. In fact, it's something tantamount to apocalyptic proportions. I'm not talking about the start of The Walking Dead's third season (which kicks off this Sunday!). No, I'm talking about bacon. Yes, bacon. Nature's perfect food. According to some key studies worldwide, we my friends, are on the verge of a Bacon Shortage! It seems that Britain's National Pig Association has just announced that all of Europe's main pig-producing countries are seeing a decrease in the size of their herds. ...

Carbonite 1 Year of Data Backup #Giveaway (Ends 10/9)

Raise your hand if you thought Carbonite was only good for deep-freezing smugglers with a heart of gold? Apparently, Jabba the Hutt wasn't the only one thinking about preserving important data. The data in his case, being one Han Solo. If you've never heard of them, Carbonite is an Online Backup System for personal or business use. They can easily back up your hard drive (documents, photos, videos, etc.) to the cloud for safe keeping. So the next time your hard drive flips out, you can simply restore it based on a previous backup. I've personally used external hard drives like MyBook over the past few years. I don't even do much ...

We Made Our Own Sushi This Weekend and It Actually Looked Legit

My wife and I love sushi. We love making sushi. We love eating sushi. We love dressing up as sushi. Okay, wait. Scratch that last one. But we do love us some sushi! This weekend we got together with our family friends The Tatars to introduce them to the fine art of sushi making. Our kids get along great (how rare is that where the parents AND kids all get along with everyone in another family?), so while they were all off playing Super Paper Mario Kart Party or whatever, we dove into dinner! Allie and Stacey drove down to Mitsuwa Marketplace in Edgewater, NJ. It's about 40 minutes away but it's ...
