Get Amazing Displays with Sony Xperia Unlocked Phones

It wasn’t too long ago that I would carry my nice DSLR camera and bulky camera bag when I’d go to special places or events with the kids and it seems like I’d spend the whole time hiding behind the camera and I’d never be in any of the shots! With all the advances in cell phone camera technology that has changed, now all I have to carry with me is my cell phone (well and occasionally a selfie stick) and I can capture all the memories with great photos and I can even be in some of the shots.

With Memorial Day coming up this weekend it’s a great time to take advantage of all the fabulous sales on appliances, mattresses and spring clothing. Due to the cyclical nature of retail sales, different things go on sale at different times of the year on a predictable basis.  Much like stockpiling your groceries, where you buy enough of what you need when it’s on sale to tide you over until the next sale, you can really take advantage of seasonal shopping to save some big bucks on your household expenditures!

Why My Dad Loves His New Cue Vapor System

When my now 80 year old dad quit smoking a couple years ago he switched to vaping.

Freecycle Basketball Hoop

The other day I pulled up at my parents house to pick up my kids from camp grandma and they were out front playing basketball using the recycle can as a hoop. They were having a grand old time but I was a little embarrassed that they didn’t have a real basketball goal to play with so I posted a “want” on Freecycle.org and within a couple hours I had two people offering me their used basketball hoops for free. I ended up grabbing both of them and have put one up at my house and another at mom and dad’s place.
