Nike+ FuelBand – Because Lifes a Game

by Julie

It’s official, Spring has sprung, not that we ever had much of a Winter. I look out the window this afternoon and my thoughts turn to bathing suits and barbecues, not necessarily in that order.

My daughter hates to wear her helmet. She says its hot, it feels weird, and its not cool.  I always try to recount some horrendous emergency room scenarios that involve fracturedskulls and hundreds of stiches.

by Julie

I remember my Grandfather always walking around with a little penknife, and I cant tell you how many times that little sucker came in handy, as a screwdriver, gum scraper, twig cutter or maybe even a strawberry huller or banana slicer. He always had it with him, and I still have it today. It seems as though folding knives have been around for a very long time, nothing was too …
