Ancestry by DNA – Finally Answers the Question, Where do I Come From?

by Julie

Everyone has a unique family history, but some folks seem to know more about who and where they come from and others would like to know more, but there isn’t really anyone left to ask. I have found that even the people who have a firm grasp on their family story recognize that the story always ends somewhere, obviously well before the actual beginning. Where do we all really come …

Do you Think these Clothes are Going to Clean Themselves?

by Julie

Few things strike as much dread into the middle of my day as much as the laundry. I think its right up there on my list of things I have learned to hate the drudgery  of quite a long time ago. Vacuuming, kitty litter emptying and laundry. Hate em. We’ve put a man on the moon, how come I’m still doing this stuff the way my mom used to? Sure …

Smart Textiles – Get a Charge out of your T-Shirt

by Julie

I can still fondly remember my Sony Walkman, and I was one of the first kids on the block to have one of those suitcase phones. I also remember the astronomical bill for a lousy half hour of talk time, which was all that thing could handle. No doubt batteries have gotten much more efficient, and a heck of a lot smaller… but, can we do better? Well, what about …

Virgin Galactic – Commercial Spaceline, Big Dollars and no Peanuts.

by Julie

I often sit out on my patio gazing at the moon and stars and wonder just what kinds of secrets the Universe may hold. So many little kids dream of being astronauts, I guess I might have too… but I have a myriad of control and claustrophobia issues, probably best left for my “psychiatrist in a box” post thats coming up tomorrow. In the meantime, check out spaceflight opportunities for …

Yves Rossy’s Wingpack – For the Love of Flying

by Julie

Last night I had a dream that I was flying, when I woke up I realized that since the beginning of time man has wanted to be able to experience the joy of singular flight, to be able to soar like a bird on wings of their own. For me, I think it was just the banana split I ate before bed, but it made me look up gadgets that …

Kiddie Voice – No Child Left Behind

by Julie

It was just a day or two ago that I told you about the Child Minder safety alarm. I found it a shame that our hectic lifestyles could put any of us in such a haze that we could actually forget our child in the backseat of the car. It’s an unbelievable tragedy and I thought the 70 dollar safety alarm had its place, even if it saved just one …

Commercial Free DVR – How can it Survive?

by Julie

  I watch a few less commercials on television these days. I just fast forward through them. In the old days commercials were when you went to get snacks or put the clothes in the dryer. I’m hard pressed to think of a television commercial that I have seen in the last 6 months that I was glad I watched. Maybe I just missed all the good ones, for all …

Lower Risk Cigarettes – Would you Smoke again?

by Julie

I guess I will remember for the rest of my life the day Susan and I snuck into the cellar and tried our first cigarettes, some stolen Lucky Strike non filters from her grandfather. I remember how cool I felt taking my first puff and how green I turned even before I managed to exhale. Susan became a smoker. I never tried it again, of course now I wouldn’t bother, …
