Instead, it's time to meet the newest gift that says, "I love you" more than any other gift ever could. Or rather, it's time to meat... Beef Jerky Flower Bouquets.

Healthy Dog Food Delivered Straight to Your Doggy Door

The following post contains affiliate links. We've had our puppy Ace for exactly three months now. This little guy somehow gets cuter by the day and more and more lovable. At 5 months old, he's already a big part of the family. When it comes to feeding Ace, the little guy is a wonder. Yes, he's picky with his dog food like most dogs probably are, but we've discovered he loves a lot of people food too. Bananas? You bet! Apples? Definitely a fan. Pizza crust? Um, yeah, that's actually one of his favorites. Not to mention cream cheese and cottage cheese, which send him into a complete Snoopy Happy Dance mode. My wife and I love ...

Ice Just Got Cool – Plus a Tovolo Ice Molds Giveaway ($85 value)

The following is a sponsored post about Tovolo's Craft Ice Molds. Let me start by saying I'm not a heavy drinker. I certainly enjoy an ice-cold beer while watching the Steelers play on a Sunday afternoon. But when it comes to cocktails, I used to only go for the basics like a screwdriver or whiskey sour. Then I met my friend Rob. We worked together and he was a huge scotch drinker. I tried it once and felt like I was burning my throat off. But Rob gave me one incredibly simple tip that changed my drinking life. We were on a plane off to a conference somewhere. Los Angeles most likely. Maybe ...

The Best Jerky Kit From Manly Man Company Speaks Beef Jerky Truth

This post contains affiliate links. I still remember the worst thing I ever put in my mouth. I was working at Wizard Entertainment, a publishing company that put out all sorts of magazines about comics, toys and pop culture. We were mostly 20-something guys that loved superheroes. Yeah, imagine a frat house made up entirely of geeks. That was us. Anyways, we often received gifts from clients and companies and for some reason, one day we ended up with a whole bunch of jerky. There were ostrich jerky sticks. Gator jerky bits. And then... well, then the most horrifying two words I've ever seen combined... Oyster jerky. Yes, it was jerky made of oysters. Never one ...

My Watch Has Ended But the Ale is Still Flowing

It's been some time now since HBO's bloodthirsty game has come to end. We've all had time to truly digest the rise and fall of our favorite families from the Lannisters (boooo!) to the Targaryens (Yay! Er, boo?) to the Starks (Forever Yay!). Yes, HBO's Game of Thrones has ended but there's still time for one more toast. Brewery Ommegang and HBO are proud to announce the 15th and final offering in their line of ales inspired by the award-winning drama. I previously shared a pint of King of the North with my buddy Eric. This time around, however, it felt more appropriate to drink alone. The series is over. Characters are dead. ...

I Survived My First Week of Intermittent Fasting

My favorite quote from Garfield (Everyone has one, right?) has to be: Diet is just DIE with a T. Nothing is less satisfying than the first few days of a new diet. You're either screaming at everyone around you ready to bite their heads off because you're so hungry, or you're so disgusted at eating nothing but crunchy, healthy food. Celery is the food of the devil for sure. My wife and I have been trying to eat healthy and lose some weight for awhile now. Nothing seems to be sticking though, except for the extra pounds. So we decided it was time for a drastic change. We looked into the Keto ...
