It's not unusual to hear of folks trapped in tiny cramped living spaces to find ingenious ways to use the available space.

New Way to Carry Your Laptop - Pizza Box Case


I am in the market for a travel case for my laptop. It was pretty clear from visting a few stores this weekend that the utilitarian and very boring black bag is pretty much what's available. How amazingly hohum! Why is it that the mass merchandisers all carry the same items?

I decided not to purchase anything and look for some more interesting options on line. How fortunate for me that in checking out one of my favorite websites Attu Sees All this morning, I found an unusual laptop case that I thought was pretty fun. read more »

What You Need To Be Cool in College


Fart DetectorFart DetectorGoing off to college? Got all the necessary school supplies?

One of my sons is going off to college this year. It got me thinking of what I need to send off with him so that he has everything he needs to be successful in school.

I guess success means different things to different folks. For me, success means the obvious things like my kid does not flunk out. It also means that my kid is popular and know as one of the cool kids and not one of the dorks.

To help him be cool, I came up with some items I am gong to send off with him. I don't think many of the students in his college will have these items, but I am sure they wish they did.

Here's my list of the Things You Can Buy So That You Can Be Cool in College: read more »

10 Ways to REALLY Piss Off Your Woman


Do you need relationship counseling? Are the sparks of your relationship slowly becoming dying embers?

My relationship advice to you is try pissing off your mate. Yup, I mean it!

I realized this week that, as a couple, my wife and I were getting along a bit TOO well these days. We've been together long enough to work out many of the kinks, so there is little that creates drama and tension in our lives. We get along well. So, we are not one of those couples constantly shopping for relationship counseling.

But there are times when I want a little fun. I want the sparks to fly.

If you ever feel that your relationship is missing some spark, and you want to have a little fun, I have a few ideas for you to try before you go off looking for a relationship counselor. Just make sure you don't do anything you can't get her to forgive you for.

Here are 10 Great Ways to Really Piss Off Your Woman (or 10 Great Ways to Avoid a Relationship Counselor)... read more »

10 Types of MEN You Need to Avoid

Well, I had committed in the 10 Types of Women You Need to Avoid article that I would write about Men to Avoid.

I really regretted suggesting I would do that as it was almost impossible to find male dolls that were not "adult", and I really did not enjoy looking at all the stupid looking adult male dolls (...and yes, I may someday do an article on them if I can get it through our censors). It only took me about a week of scouring the net to finally realize that dolls for men are called "action figures". Duh!

So here's my dating advice on the 10 Types of Men You Need to Avoid, as highlighted by dolls, I mean male action figures:

11 Foolish Ways We Spoil Our Kids


I was sitting at a restaurant the other day, watching a mom and a dad arguing with their little girl about whether the dad should take a new job. ... It's clear that the parents had lost control of their obnoxious daughter, but I also thought it clear that they had also lost control of their senses.

This incident got me wondering about whether we have gone too far in spoiling our children. We let them make decisions they should not make, do things they should not be doing and buy junk they should not have. I think some of us may spoil our children too much, and in that way fail our kids as parents.

I think the way we have come to overly spoil our kids is obvious in the stuff that we buy for them. With that idea as my inspiration this week, here are my 11 finds for the foolish ways we spoil our kids... read more »
