 | PHOTO BY DMOON1, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO, TAKEN AT SUNRISE BY DMOON1, IS A ALMOST OTHERWORLDLY. It’s so warm and orange it’s almost unbelievable, but if you’re in the right place at the right time, some places are actually this beautiful, and dmoon1 was the right photographer to capture it. I really love the perspective, too, looking at a bend in the road with trees quickly fading into the fog in the background. Thanks, dmoon1!   Click here to see our other Photos of the Day...

 A Chromebook for $100 is really low. That’s lower than many tablets that often have less RAM and of course, no keyboard.   Google Chromebook 2 GB RAM,16 GB Solid State Drive, $99.99 For me, the keyboard on a notebook makes it way more functional than a tablet or phone. I bought a wireless keyboard a long time ago, because typing a lot on a small screen can be a real pain in the neck. The keyboard helped a lot with that, but I had to a), buy two things and b), carry two things. Expensive...
Getting a quality mattress and boxspring on Amazon is way cheaper than I thought

Getting a quality mattress and boxspring on Amazon is way cheaper than I thought

I need a new mattress, and I’ve found a new, good quality, queen-sized mattress and a boxspring/bedframe for way less than I thought I would be able to.   I’ve been needing a new mattress for a while, and I thought I’d be lucky to get a good one for $800. The famous Casper mattresses basically start there, and the Purple and Saatva mattresses share a similar price point. So I just assumed that’s what it would take to get a satisfactory night’s sleep.  But my brother Joe...
Recipe of the Day: Easy, Creamy Egg Salad With Celery Recipe

Recipe of the Day: Easy, Creamy Egg Salad With Celery Recipe

Egg salad is a great snack. Creamy, at least partly nutritious, and easily combined with other foods. I used to enjoy a store-bought egg salad from time to time, but a homemade egg salad is far superior: it’s fresher, creamier, and it’s easy enough that it’s no problem for even the worst cooks among us. I like it by itself, but even better, I prefer it in conjunction with other foods when I’m making a sandwich. Bacon especially comes to mind… Mmm. Since the main...

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 5: “Gunner” recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 5: “Gunner” recap

I’m really liking the unpredictability of The Punisher and the other Netflix Marvel shows. I’m used to cues and tropes showing me where the plot is going. Those are pretty absent from this show. Generally speaking, that’s a sign of a good show. Unlike most plots on TV, Netflix is taking their time and letting this story develop at its own pace.   Full episode gallery Agent Madani is already up and running   Dinah was left bleeding on the asphalt at the end of the last episode, but she’s...

Starbucks Releases New Juniper Latte and Juniper Affogato: What They Are And Where To Get Them

Starbucks Releases New Juniper Latte and Juniper Affogato: What They Are And Where To Get Them

| IMAGE FROM STARBUCKS.COM |   STARBUCKS IS GETTING SUPER FANCY at some of their Reserve coffee bar locations.   What is it?   This drink sounds amazing. Starbucks describes, quite poetically, how the drink itself will transport you into a winter wonderland of the senses through its deeply evocative smells and flavors. I’ll do my best to get one and let you know if it does as advertised.   The Juniper Latte is made with   Starbucks Reserve Christmas 2017 coffee beans. These beans are a...
The Punisher Season 1, Episode 4: “Resupply” recap

The Punisher Season 1, Episode 4: “Resupply” recap

This is a show that just gets better as it goes. I’m becoming more invested in this show than I expected. Lewis, who almost killed his father accidentally last episode because of his severe PTSD, digs a giant foxhole in his backyard. He rings it on three sides with sandbags, and half covers it with a tarp. With his assault rifle next to his head, Lewis covers himself with a blanket and goes to sleep. And with this depiction of the reality and extreme suffering mental illness can cause,...

Photo of the Day: “l i g h t c a t c h e r” by RAWSIDE4RT

| PHOTO BY RAWSIDE4RT, FLICKR |   THIS PHOTO OF A SANATORIUM BY RAWSIDE4RT IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF ABANDONED PHOTOGRAPHY. Yep, that’s a whole genre of photography, and I love a good photo of an abandoned building, as long as it’s more cool than creepy. Light is a big part of that. The lighting captured in this photo is perfect. As its title suggests, the badminton net catches the light, adding a lot of depth to this photo. From my perspective, it gives the photo an optimistic element...
