Why you should have a home gym

Why you should have a home gym

It's officially cold out. Holiday dinner after holiday dinner are coming up in the future. Pair that up with shorter windows to see some actual daylight, and it sounds like a perfect time to go into hibernation. Or wait, maybe it's time to work on that home gym!

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whiskey

Buffalo Trace Bourbon Whskey has been around for a long time, a LONG time, having a working distillery since 1787. This has given them some time to really perfect their recipe. Coming up with a 90 proof bourbon, Buffalo Trace I have read is aged for 9 years, though there isn't an age statement on the label, and hits a nice level of 90 proof.

The Total Outdoorsman Manual

The Total Outdoorsman Manual

I'm always looking for something to read. I go back and fourth between wanting a book that I can consume myself with and wanting something that I can just flip through for some light reading. Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a copy of The Total Outdoorsman Manual from Weldonowen and found it pretty interesting.

Guide to Urban Moonshining: How to Make and Drink Whiskey

I was lucky enough to get a copy of "Guide to Urban Moonshining: How to Make and Drink Whiskey". This book really gives you an education on whiskey, and keeps it interesting.

If you don't check it too often, here are a few projects worth keeping an eye on from kickstarter. From automation, home efficiency, or just keeping things looking cool, we'll find them all for you!

Heroes of the Storm - Game Trailer

Blizzard: Heroes of the Storm Trailer

This doesn't show us any game play, but man, it definitely gets us psyched to see some of these familiar faces...

Probably one of the coolest videos coming at us from Blizzard, again. Just announced recently, I'm looking forward to seeing this one come forward. Hopefully the timeline stays strong and this doesn't become another ultra delayed release, or even a dead project at some point.

Review: G3000 - Mobile Power Generator

G3000 by Genneo

Different from spinning generators or solar generators, the Genneo charges from natural human movement, so it quietly charges up as you walk or run. You don’t need to set it up in the sun, or turn a crank, or even think about it. The G3000 generates power through movement, specifically by bouncing it. Slipping it in a cargo pocket or in a backpack would make for the ideal location for it.

The Rolex shop that could

Paul Altieri, the founder of Bobs Watches

So this is a different kind of story that came across the channels, but it did catch my interest. Someone starting a business of buying and selling used Rolex watches. While trying not to look like a pawn shop or another eBay, Paul Altieri, the founder of Bobs Watches, launched in 2010, and has seen huge growth year over year, needless to say, we thought it was worth while to see what he had to say about it, so we asked him a bit about his business.

Review: CLEVERFIT

CLEVERFIT

Recently I was given the chance to try out something small, but rather unique, the CLEVERFIT, a shirt collar stay. I'll start off by saying, I wear button up shirts every day. I've always tried to keep ahold of the little shirt collar tabs that come with my shirts, but I lose them constantly. For me, it's really just a losing battle, but that's why I like the CLEVERFIT, they're larger so you won't lose them, made from metal so they won't break or warp, and best of all, they're sizable, so you know they'll fit your shirt.

Kickstarters we could use: Life-Spot

Kickstarters we could use: Life-Spot

I like to keep an eye on kickstarter. It gives everyone the opportunity to create something really cool if there's the public interest, and it lets us check that public interest without selling the house first. If we watch closely enough, every now and then we see something pretty cool come out of it.
