Vacation Week - Going to the Cabin

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist ‎07-24-2015 10:24 AM - edited ‎07-24-2015 10:25 AM

 Cooler.jpgI haven’t been out to the family cabin this year, but I have some fond memories of going out on the lake and grilling with the family. I remember one year where we ended up having so much fun that we made the decision to stay outside all night around the campfire and tell those stereotypical ghost stories. My sister was absolutely terrified the entire night, but it was so much fun just being out with friends and family without the pressures of real life getting in the way.

Vacation Week- Gadgets for Flying

by Social Media Specialist Social Media Specialist on ‎07-22-2015 07:00 AM

iPad Air

I’ve always loved to travel. I think it’s because when I was a little girl my parents would pack us up in what I now call the “truckster” and we would embark a on a 3 day road trip to Mexico to see my family. I didn’t mind the long hours because I always had my Sony Walkman with me to listen to my favorite tunes, and a good book. Nowadays I’m not as patient sitting for so many hours, so I enjoy flying a lot more.  I’ve been on short flights, for example to Chicago, and long ones like Sweden and Argentina. While short flights are over before you can even finish the drink you are given, I dread the long 15+ hour flights; therefore, I always make sure to take some gadgets along with me to keep me busy. Here are my favorites.

Cuisinart - Waffle MakerWaffles have been a breakfast favorite for me since I was a child. Apparently they are not just my favorite as waffles are eaten throughout the world, particularly in Belgium, France, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Hungary, Scandinavia, United States, with over a dozen regional varieties in Belgium alone. I was also surprised to discover that they have been around since the 14th century! People used waffle irons to cook them, and the waffle iron plates were made in different shapes/designs . Nowadays you can find waffle makers everywhere, and they still come in many sizes and shapes. Let’s explore the different waffle makers we offer!

Quad-CopterAbout this time every year, I always struggle to find something for my dad on Father’s Day. If you’re like me, there are always the good old standbys of grilling toys, hardware tools, or even TV series boxsets. This Father’s Day I’m determined to find something for my dad that doesn’t scream, “I didn’t know what to get you!”. Of course, this is easier said than done, as my dad is a little harder to shop for than most, so I really have to think outside of the box to find something he’ll like.

Cole HaanAs is customary for Minnesota, spring did not arrive until later in the season, and May has brought more showers than April, so it looks like June will bring the flowers this year. Besides looking forward to spring and summer weather, I look forward to the new colors introduced for the seasons. Designers did not disappoint this year, and I absolutely love the mix of understated brights, pale pastels and nature-like neutrals that you see in clothing and accessories. They chose colors like aquamarine, scuba blue, toasted almond, strawberry ice, and marsala to name a few. These tones invoke thoughts of oceans, sand, and nature. They give us that little escape from our busy schedules and help soothe our senses.

What’s in an SD Card?

by Administrator ‎04-16-2015 10:23 AM - edited ‎04-22-2015 04:39 PM

SD CardOne of the most frustrating things you can come across when shopping for something is a grouping of strange symbols and letters on an item with no explanation for the differences. It’s like looking at the laundry tag on clothes items and being presented with 5 symbols with no reference “do I wash with cold water and then machine dry? Or wash in warm water and hang dry?” (By the way if someone could explain these to me I’d be forever grateful.) In the electronics world an item you might come across like this is your standard everyday SD Card, but luckily we’re here to help explain these differences and get you the card that suits your needs best.

InterstellarI don’t know about you, but I am somewhat of a sucker for science fiction. Growing up, I would spend hours vegging out on episodes of Star Trek, Star Wars marathons, and everything in-between. I once made my family late for a dinner because I could not be pulled away from my first viewing of 2001: A Space Odyssey. When Contact came out, I dug through my couch cushions to gather enough spare change and walked two miles to see the movie three days in a row. Knowing this about my experience with the genre- you might be able to guess how excited I was to see Interstellar.

Into The WoodsFor anyone who knows me (or you’ve happened to read some of my past blogs), I love a good fairytale story, so you can imagine how excited I was when I found out the Broadway hit “Into the Woods” was coming to the big screen late last year.  It was such a huge deal for my friends and I that we made sure to purchase tickets ahead of time.  Despite that, we arrived a whole hour ahead of the movie time to ensure we had the best seat possible. What’s even worse is that I’m sure we were the most obnoxious people there, as we were “softly” singing along to the entire film (90% of the dialogue is through song). Don’t judge… there were other groups singing too!

Back in the 20th Century, when I was young and foolish, he and his adventurous friends were my companions every day after school.

75 Years of BatmanAs one of the few superheroes with no actual superpowers, Batman's success as a super hero lies in his ability to show that anyone can be a hero. Using some high tech gadgets and intellect, Batman defeats some of the most impactful and infamous villains in comic book history.

Favorite Disney Movies

Favorite Disney MoviesJust recently, I had the oh-so-pleasant experience of moving to a new place.  During one of my many de-cluttering therapy sessions to cut back on some possessions, I stumbled across a box I likely hadn’t touched in years. Inside it was a variety of miscellaneous items, but one of them was a small red and blue book that simply said, “45th Anniversary: Autographs”.  Curious, I leafed through it and to my surprise, I see “Goofy” and “Donald” scrawled across the first page. I found my Disneyland autograph book from my childhood!
