Is there a Guerilla Gardener in You?


I'd like to say that there is a Guerilla Gardener in me just waiting to come out. Ask my husband and he would probably tell you that I can envision a garden growing just about anywhere in my city. I'm always pointing and saying things like, "Why not plant a tree here, or flowers there?" I imagine turning abandoned buildings into greenhouses, parking-lot grass medians into botanical delights, and highway medians into evergreen forests. read more »

The World’s 10 Best Chocolates Minus 9: The Chuao Experience


... I woke up at 6:00, put on my favorite CD of opera arias, and brewed a pot of San Francisco French Roast. With my coffee and a fresh box of Chuao truffles in hand, and Kiri Te Kanawa singing Dove Sono on the stereo, I submitted to the comfort of the chaise lounge, à la Marie Antoinette, and took my first bite of a Picante truffle....

Welcome to Chuao. Chuao is to chocolate what Beluga is to caviar. A transcendental experience. read more »

Soltronics Solar Powered Headphone Radio : Product Review


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The radio is so near you, it's on your head! It's AM/FM stereo, has nice cushy earphones, great sound, and an Ni-MH battery charged by none other than the sun!

Unlike your garden's solar lights, you don't have to wait until dark to listen to the SoltronixTM Headphone Radio. The battery needs light to charge, but once it's powered, it will play for hours, day or night, outside or in. read more »

A Pillbox For Someone Who Has Everything!


WVitaCarryVitaCarryhen I look at this pillbox, I think, "Wow. A person has to have every disease under the sun to need all these pills!" (There are four more compartments on the right side of the box!)

This fancy pillbox is not, you understand, for a week's worth of pills. No, this pillbox, with its fancy electronic reminder system, is for one day's worth of pills, and it tells you when to take them. read more »

Better Than Coffee?


Remember Wake-Up Juice from Back to the Future III? (View a clip on YouTube here .) It was a concoction of flaming sauces that jolted Professor Brown’s body to immediate alertness after a night of whiskey sloshing. Today, dozens of energy drinks and pills flood the market claiming to keep your body jazzed up with hours of unlimited energy, but most of them have annoying side effects (rapid heartbeat, shakes), or lead to addiction (hello, coffee!). But what if there was something that kept you awake without the consequences of traditional stimulants?

Products That Help Jog Your Memory


Brain & Memory Fitness TrainerYou know the story about Chinese food, right? "The problem with Chinese food is that no matter how much you eat, in 20 minutes you're hungry again."

Have you heard this variant of the anecdote?

"I went to see the Chinese movie, Curse of the Golden Flower, but 20 minutes after I left the theatre, I forgot what it was about."

Or this one?

"We saw the film "The Banquet," and not only were we hungry 20 minutes later, but we had to see the movie again!

I used to laugh at these "jokes." Now... well, I'm a little sensitive about my memory. I can't seem to recall the names of movies, the stars, even the plots of movies I've seen recently...and these movies were not even Chinese!
