You’ll Never Believe What I Do With Baby Oil

Hacking. It's a word I hear non-stop in my house as my kids feverishly play Minecraft on their computers and keep screaming, "He's hacking!" Yes, they're referring to a sort of "cheating" within the game. But in real life, hacks are pretty darn cool. When you can take a product like say Johnson’s® Baby Baby Oil and use it for tons of other purposes, you've just greatly increased the return on your investment! Okay, so baby oil hacks may not be tops on your list of things to do today. But trust me, having a bottle of Johnson’s® Baby Baby Oil in your cabinets is well worth it. The best part? ...

Join Me at the DynaTrap Twitter Party to Fight Off Mosquitos and Win $250

Mosquitos bite. They really really do. Last summer I wrote about how the pesky little varmints view me as an all-you-can-eat human buffet, but thanks to DynaTrap, I finally feel safe enough to explore the great outdoors. I remember bug zappers from when I was a kid. They were always loud and kind of, well, just nasty to even think about. A more modern alternative, DynaTrap is one nifty contraption that's so simple yet so effective at eliminating mosquitos and other flying insects. Best of all, it doesn't even use any chemicals. How's the DynaTrap work? Simple. It attracts mosquitos and other flying bugs and then uses its fan to pull them down to ...

Is the Verizon Wireless Recycle Program a Total Scam?

My beautiful new iPhone 6 that I may never get to use if Verizon has its way. I'm not happy. Not one bit. And it's all thanks to Verizon Wireless. I've complained about Verizon Wireless before. That was in regards to ridiculous, unnecessary fees. I still stand by that post. But this time, it's a totally different issue and I feel like I've been part of one big phone scam. Let me walk you through what happened... The iPhone 6 went on pre-order and I didn't bat an eye. Yeah it sounded great but my iPhone 4S still worked fine. I wasn't about to drop a few hundred on a new phone just ...

No More Color Bleeding Accidents Thanks to Purex No Sort

There are a number of things I'm not allowed to do in my own house. Cooking rice is one of them. So is filling up the dishwasher. And thanks to a a few unfortunate color bleeding accidents, I'm no longer allowed to do the laundry. Seriously, you mix your whites with a few random red shirts and suddenly it's the end of the world. Well, I'll let you in on a little secret. I still try to do laundry once in a while. You know, to help out around the house. Stop looking at me like that, I'm serious. Except apparently I still have no idea what I'm doing since the phrase "sort ...

Road Trip Dilemma: Packing Healthy Snacks for the Kids

There are two types of snack people in the world: salt and sweet. Generally, these seem to fall down the gender lines, with women loving sweets and guys craving salt. But just like in any relationship, mixing the two can make things even better! Pretty deep thinking for a daddy blog, I know. Anyways, my wife most definitely craves sweets. Whether it's cookies or her all-time favorite vanilla frosting, she'll take any of those over some salty snack. Me, on the other hand, would push that plate of donuts, cakes, pies or whatever to the side all for a bag of potato chips or pretzels. But what about my kids? I've got two ...
