Keep Your Pets Safe With The Samsung SmartCam HD Pro! #SmartCamTipper

Having raised my boys and now helping to raise my grandchildren, I know as well as anyone that parenting can be stressful. In many ways, being a pet-parent can be just as stressful! Being away from the house for extended periods of time, my husband and I often worry about our fur-baby and what trouble he may be getting into. It used to be that we would ask a family member or neighbor to check in on everything but not anymore! Pet-parents everywhere will be as pleased as we are now that Samsung has allowed pets and their owners to stay connected day and night with its home surveillance camera: the Samsung SmartCam HD Pro.

Samsung SmartCam HD Pro

  1. Download The Samsung SmartCam App for Android and iOs.
  2. Plug the camera into the outlet and select the “Wireless Setup" mode on the mobile app.

Accell Powramid Air Power Center Review and Giveaway

By Nate McClain

Like Roy Neary from "Close Encounters of the Third Kind", I gazed at the glowing, disc-like countenance of an almost alien-looking machine.  Yes, the Accell Powramid Air with USB charger is a very cool-looking addition to any office, conference room, or even dorm room computer gaming station. And while this saucer is very powerful, it is packed with safety features guaranteeing that you and your devices don't end up with a sunburn.

Powramid® Air Power Center and USB Charging Station

The Accell Powramid Air Power Center and USB Charging Station features 6 adapter-spaced outlets. Unlike the traditional "6 strip" six outlet surge protectors, this arrangement means that you can use all six ports, regardless of the size or shape of adapter in each. No longer will you have one or more ports uselessly covered by another adapter.

Durability Meets Fashion With Lugz Empire WR Boots + Giveaway!

Having raised a house full of boys, and been married to a retired U.S. Navy Seal, there's one vital quality I look for when shopping for their new clothes: durability! After years of watching them literally tear through jeans in a matter of weeks, stain every inch of a t-shirt before it even starts to fade, or my least favorite, managing to destroy a brand-new pair of work boots like their made from Styrofoam, I've learned which brands last and which brands do not. So when my eldest son mentioned he needed new shoes for both work and play, I knew I couldn't go wrong with the Empire WR from Lugz!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies By Nate

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies By Nate

We all love the taste and texture of a crisp oatmeal cookie. Some put raisins in theirs, but I prefer chocolate chips. Milk chocolate, even. To this end, my son has perfected a recipe of Oatmeal cookies with milk chocolate chips that adheres to the tenants of a great Oatmeal cookie, which I love. However, I recently decided to set out on a journey the other direction: not to modify Oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips, but to improve the texture and mouthfeel of chocolate chip cookies with Oatmeal. While the difference seems trivial (semantic at best), the results are the crisp, yet chewy, multi-textured big brother of your grandma's favorite chocolate chip cookies.  This recipe makes about three dozen cookies smelling of warm vanilla and sweet cinnamon.  Give them a try, and tell me what you think!
