Ruggie For The Sleepy


A rug that won’t let you oversleep, sounds very interesting right?  So if you have any sleepy heads at home and have trouble getting up, you have to back this kick starter project and get one quickly.  Why?  because the sleeper needs to get up , step on the rug and won’t let you press the snooze button like other alarm clocks.  I like the motivation messages best !  One can also use the rug as a night light when you are up late at night trying to get a drink or to go to the bathroom.  So back this awesome kick starter if you want to get one of this awesome ruggie in September 2016.  I loved kick starters and for only $79 USD , I think it’s a great way to support another person’s dream as well as having a cool gadget.

Get Unstuck During Winter


If you are living in Canada like I am , you will know that winter can be really wicked at times and having said that, it can get dangerous if you are stuck in the cold because you can plow yourself out from the snow in time.   I saw a demo on youtube called the –  Trac- Grabber – a traction device for all kinds of vehicle.  Only $49 for 2 of it for each tire , less than $100 USD to get them for all 4 tires in case you get stuck in the snow in a remote area and you never had to pay someone to plow you out either from your driveway.  I just ordered 2 boxes because you never know during winter , how bad it will get.  Free shipping from Amazon too.



Everyone wants a hoverboard for Christmas , so I was told in USA after watching Casey Neistat on youtube go on his hoverboard everytime he had to go somewhere.  So what is a hoverboard ?  How much is it and does it really work , I hear you asking.  Some places are selling it for as much as $600 in USA but I know that you can get them from China , the exact same thing for only $300 USD.

But I just read a few minutes ago that the cops in New York city has confirmed that HoverBoards are illegal to have it on the roads in New York City.  So dear Casey isn’t gonna be able to use it on the road no more.  But not to worry he has another skateboard that he uses but that would be for another day and another story.  Note that if you are caught riding it in New York, you can be fined up to $500 USD, also in UK.   But thus far in Canada, no problems and in a small town like ours, I doubt there will be a law about it.  So Canadians buy away for Christmas.

But how easy is it to maneuver this beast?   I think it takes some practice and of course you may scrap your knees and fall flat on your face a few times but overall, I don’t think it should be really hard to learn to use it especially if you were a young person.

Forget pedaling or skating to work or class, there’s a new transportation king in town (and no, it’s not a Segway).

Maximizing Your Amp Performance


Since our store deal with some musical instruments, we are often asked how to maximize customer’s amp’s performance.  Seriously, we are no expert but we an do some  tube amp troubleshooting  for them and suggest some solutions.  We also armed ourselves with some knowledge by reading it up on the internet, that way we can always try and help and also not sound too ignorant.  But what we don’t understand is when the customer/s asked for advice but yet comes up with their own “possible” solution.  Some just don’t know when to leave it to the pros to help them, and as for those kind of customers there is really nothing much we can do to assist them.

Geeks Into Trumpets


Yes, lately I’ve noticed that most of my geeky and nerdy friends are quite talented.  Not only are they great with the computer, coding and on top of all new gadgets and games , they are musically inclined too.  I had the pleasure of being entertained by a group of nerdy friends who play the trumpet , of course they didn’t use  trumpets for professionals  but I think they are the above average trumpet players.  You will be surprised with some geeky friends of yours because their talents are not limited to just nerdy and geeky stuff as I found out.

Changes With Your Netflix


Yup ! some changes with Netflix and good ones it looks like from her to me.    For those who are using Netflix and loving it, I’m sure you would notice that selecting the movies or tv shows from Netflix can be a real pain.  If you feel that way, you will welcome the new change whereby , the thumbnails are bigger in its own section and it will instantly expand the movies and shows to see its details.  You also can get a short preview of what you are about to watch.  The design is supposed to be a lot sleeker as well as faster.

Father’s Day Gift

June 21 is Father’s Day this year , and instead of waiting for the last minute to get something for the spouse, this year, I’ve decided that we want to get something special for the spouse.  To tell him how important he is to us and that we appreciate everything he has done for us thus far.


We know that he would love anyone of this  Epi  limited editions, and since it’s 40% off right now, we are getting one for him for Father’s Day.  I’m sure he would feel really bad , he didn’t get a lot for me for Mother’s day now . haha!  I will be recording his reaction when he opens up his Father’s day present this year and put it up for viewing .  Yes, I’m “evil” hhahaha!

Grooming The Geek


The spouse is quite the geek , in terms of looks and dressing.  He doesn’t really bother about how he looks as long as he is clean.  So with a birthday coming up really soon , what do one get for him?  I get him this aftershave that I know he uses all the time , but this year, I decided to look  for pinaud after shave  because I’ve heard good things about it.   Grooming the geek isn’t easy, but someone has to do it.

Smart T-Shirt


French company Cityzen Sciences has developed this smart shirt that not only measure statistic but your heart rate.  Great for sports men/women out there, so Antoine Ormieres said.  A very interesting concept and for those who are very much into fitness, this smart t-shirt may just be the thing for you.  It also tells you how many calories you’ve lost besides your heart rate and other vitals.

Christmas Gift For Couples


Shopping for a Christmas gift for the couple that has got everything?  and can’t find a thing to get for them.  Well, look no more, we had the same trouble too and if you have the same problem as we did , get some  salsa lessons santa monica  for them like we did.  What is more romantic than a couple going for dance classes together, it’s not only healthy but also very useful for couples who don’t spend a lot of time together doing things together.  If we had dance classes like this in our area, I would be getting dance classes for my in – laws as well as aunts and uncles and even co-workers.  I would definitely appreciate it if I were to get some free dance lessons.
