Win a 2 lb. Assorted Tin of David’s Cookies (Ends 2/15)

Sending someone flowers is always a nice gesture. But come one, who are you kidding? Everybody, and I mean everybody, loves a good cookie. You can't eat a flower.

Guest Post – Tech Initiatives for Children

Oliver pitched me an article that certainly caught my attention: Getting kids into technology. I've written about my son being a keynote speaker at MIT for his programming project, as well as various homemade movies and all sorts of Lego projects both my sons have been involved with.

Window Shopping for Gorgeous Necklaces at Fragments.com

When it comes to jewelry, my wife is pretty particular. Though, I have to imagine most women are.

Get a $5 Lowes or Home Depot Gift Card for Filling out My Survey

One of the cooler things about social media (and yes, I consider blogs to be part of social media) is the ability to reach a large and diverse audience. It's a chance to instantly get opinions and suggestions straight from consumers themselves. Pretty powerful stuff, I've got to say. And yes, I know, I know. With great power must also come, great responsibility. I'm on it, no worries. Recently, I was contacted to be part of a really cool initiative. I can't tell you what company it's for just yet, but they're legit and pretty awesome. Seriously. I've used their products in the past and even have a few in my house ...
