The DJI Phantom and Other Drones…What’s All the Fuss About?

Drones?  What’s the DJI Phantom?  And what is all the fuss about drones?  Until a few years ago, I did not even really know what they were.  Now, however, being a household with 2 working drones, I have learned quite a bit about them.  And…believe it or not, I am fascinated with these fun toys, and will probably have one on my wish list for Christmas this year. I think there are a couple of reasons I’m drawn to them.  First, I’m still a kid at heart and I like most toys, but one of my favorites growing up...

The Pink Peg Perego Polaris RZR 900 Ride On: Redefining Girly Girl

As a parent, you’re probably aware of (and maybe even offended by) color coding stereotypes for children’s toys. The predominant colors for toys for boys are the bold ones, especially red and black. For girls, their toys tend to use more of the pastel colors, with pink the most famous girly girl color of them all. But with this Pink Peg Perego Polaris RZR 900, you may want to rethink any negative connotation of pink girly girl toys.  There is nothing “girly” about this awesome toy car for girls.  The boys in your neighborhood are going to want to ride...

What is the Limo Studio for Small Products? I know you’ve seen my blog post about my Limo Studio Backdrop set up called Photo Backdrops…Why You Might Want One.  In this post, I talk about my full-size, portable Limo Studio Photo Studio Background Backdrop Support Stand set up.  And I love it!  But…many of the products I feature in my blog posts are very small, and only require a small backdrop to take photos. I was getting tired of having to back my car out of the garage so I could set up my full sized Limo Studio set...

Super Mario Bros. for the iPhone? Finally…

Super Mario Bros. for the iPhone?  Finally!!  What in the world took them so long?  My love for video games began a long long time ago when my friends and I began playing games together on our Atari 2600, ColecoVision, and IntelliVision Game Systems. Remember those?  Several of my friends who lived in my neighborhood all saved up and we bought several different systems and a selection of games that we could trade back and forth. We would decide what we wanted to play, and that would determine whose house we would be at for the moment!  Or…we’d just...
