Is it Eggroll proof? I can find out if it is possible to be misunderstood, broken or used in a new and unexpected way. It's going to be fun, and possibly a little bit dangerous. . .

When I saw these beauties all lined up like toy soldiers, my first thought was that it was a wax museum for witches. It was in the middle of Spring, so I knew they weren't Halloween decorations . . .
Before I tell you what they are really for, let me tell you what Eggroll the Product Tester might try to do with them:
1. Screw it into the ceiling and hang a plant from it.
2. Skewer it and use it as a ba...Read Full Post »

I think one of the wonderful parts about the increasing content available over the Internet, is that we have an opportunity to firehose our learning from other people. If something works well, you can tell by all the glowing reviews. I also love all the how-to youtube videos and life hack posts that come through my social media feed. Everytime I see my old Betty Crocker paperback cookbook, I am reminded how useless it has been to me over the past 25 years. As a young woman, I would try to fol...Read Full Post »

There is a very stiff warning when you buy one of these Fly Traps with the plastic bag hanging off the one-way entry cap -- and that is to make sure you don't spill the bait.
Also, they are to be used OUTDOORS.
Well my product-testing hubby thought he would hang this trap in the kitchen . . . you know, just overnight, to catch that one annoying fly that has been circling the house for two days. You guesse...Read Full Post »

One thing I've learned since finding out I have breast cancer, is that my doctors are moving at the speed of light. They throw out their advice like an empty beer bottle as they fly by . . .
"We'll be watching for symptoms," my surgeon said.
"Things like headaches."
"How can Stage 1 breast cancer cause a headache? Wouldn't that take years to go to my brain?"
"Yeah, probably. . . See you in six months."
If you are ok just going along wit...Read Full Post »

Some years ago, my husband bought a Glacier Bay Flapperless Toilet for one reason and one reason only . . . it was guaranteed to flush when you pushed the handle. He was tired of toilets that kinda-sorta flushed, and then wouldn't flush until the water refilled. Fast foward a couple of years later, and the valve started to fail . . .
At first I jiggled the handle. When that no longer ...Read Full Post »

Friends, I have found my doppleganger. Her name is Joan and she makes gnome cottages out of river rocks, dresses in shockingly bright colors and she's babysitting a dog next door to me. Today during a visit, I gave her a chocolate donut and we began discussing the various uses of a dishwasher. She's suffering from a painful bout of sciatica and said she was pretty much putting everything in the dishwasher lately. I bragged that it was great for the hot tub filters and soap dishes. Not to be o...Read Full Post »

We interrupt your regularly scheduled programming with my complete self-absorption over being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Along with fretting, panicking, googling, speculating, catastrophizing and being told to "calm down," I've also been product-testing some pretty amazing technology. The new 3d mammogram technology is definitely Eggroll Proof, as was the ultrasound that followed. I snagged a photo of it whi...Read Full Post »

Last January, I noticed it was becoming increasingly difficult for me to speak. The words would be a jumble. I would stutter, not be able to remember the words for simple everyday objects, and sometimes I would just drop off and stare into space. Staring into space became a pleasant way to spend way too much time. I became disoriented and not recognizing familiar places. When I didn't recognize my neighbor of five years, I called my doctor.
He put me on estrogen, B12, extra thyroid...Read Full Post »

During a recent visit to Yuma, AZ, I noticed very few yards have grass down there in the desert. People used their creativity to make their yards attractive. There were Japanese raked-sand gardens, which had to be remade daily due to passing dogs that would kick at the sand while burying their unmentionables. Dry creek beds are a common theme. Lots of cactus. But my single-most favorite landscaping item was this adorable miniature prospector with his donkey, sitting on some Fool's Gold.

This entry really should be under the category "fashion." These Pretzel Necklaces are very popular at beer festivals. They come in many varieties. This one is alternating butter-flavored mini-pretzels between giant crunchy sea salt pretzels. The necklace itself can be anything from twine to fancy gold chain. But what I love about these necklaces the most, is how useful they can be . . .
If you're an introvert at a par...Read Full Post »
