  • Why Ethanol is Bad For Your Lawn Mower and Other Power Tools

    I've been a fan of TruFuel for a while now - frankly speaking, it's convenient and less messy than having to mix petrol and oil to make it the right formula for my 2-stroke engine power tools. That was enough for me, I'm generally pretty happy just that something saves me time and energy. What about that third selling point though, the fact that it contains no ethanol. Why is ethanol bad though and how does it actually hurt your engine? Let's take a look...

  • Tips to Plan Your Second Wedding And Get It Right This Time

    For many of us, our wedding day was one of the best days of our lives. We were young and in love and everything seemed perfect - but in reality, most of us guys probably weren't as understanding or helpful to our brides as we should have been. There were things we did wrong or should have simply done more of. While I am happily married now and can't imagine having to do things over again - other friends of ours are planning second weddings and this gives them a new chance to do things differently.

    What if I told you that it’s possible to get nearly free gas at participating Shell stations nationwide? That’s right, not just “discounted” but actually stack your *Fuel Rewards® discounts to the point where it exceeds the price of the per-gallon price at the pump! Here’s a simple scenario …

  • Trak At Home Male Fertility Testing System Does More Than Just Test Sperm Count

    Many of us men aren't really comfortable with medical stuff in general - and when it comes to testing our sperm there's an extra level of resistance. I don't think anyone really wants to go to a doctor's office and jerk off in a closet and the thought of doing it at home and running across town is even more awkward. On top of this, I think most guys naturally assume that fertility issues are the women's responsibility. That's not fair, but that is how our society generally engages with the topic. With Trak though, it does more than just allow you to run an at-home semen analysis to count up your sperm, but also has guidance on how you can improve your count too.

  • Exploring the Many Benefits to Learning How to Play a Guitar

  • How to Protect Your Eyes While Traveling In A Hot Arid Desert

    Your eyes are important - that shouldn't be a surprise to anyone but sometimes it's easy to forget to take care of them. While traveling, this is especially important when visiting harsh environments that are extremely hot, dry and dusty such as the desert. 

  • How to Buy The Right Boat For Your Lifestyle

    Some people were simply born to own a boat. If the man in your life often looks longingly at bodies of water or speaks fondly of a childhood spent on deck, it might be a sign that he won’t truly be happy unless he has some sophisticated watercraft to his name.

  • How To Keep Wine Fresh

    Despite the fact that I love all things wine and enjoy visiting new wineries for a tasting, at home I'm honestly not much of a drinker. As a result, no matter how much I LOVED that bottle of wine at the wine tasting, it's likely that it will be weeks or even months after I come home that it will be opened. Even once opened, sadly there are too many bottles that have gone to waste. I know that I'm not alone in this challenge though, so I thought it might be time to share some wine wisdom. Hopefully this helps save precious wine from being wasted!

  • Preparing a Travel Budget For Summer Road Trips

    Preparing a travel budget is one of the most important parts of being a happy and successful traveler and even though road trips can be less expensive than other travel options, that doesn't mean you don't have to prepare a budget. In fact there are several unique variables here that need to be taken into consideration - not the last of which is fuel price and consumption rate.

  • Comparing Today's Top SUVs and How To Pick The One For you

    It's no secret that the auto industry is extremely competitive and that American tastes are shifting away from mid-sized sedans to SUVs like the Mazda MX-5, Honda CRV, Toyota Rav4, and Jeep Cherokee. What is interesting to me is how similar each of these cars is on paper and price - yet so different in driving experience. It made me step back a bit and think about how I experience cars since rarely do I get a chance to actually compare vehicles directly. Typically we're provided a top of the line model and asked to share our thoughts on it. Through a bit of luck and planning though, I managed to drive all four of these this year and take the opportunity to compare not just their bullet-ed talking points - but what it actually means to someone shopping for the right SUV for their lifestyle.

  • Tips For Traveling With Your Wife (And Still Enjoying The Trip!)

    Happy wife, happy life… or at least that’s what they say. At least once a year, it’s a great idea to take that special girl in your life out on a nice romantic getaway with your partner. For me though the reality is that I travel almost constantly with Heather and we've been all over the country on road trips where we are sitting together for 8-10 hours each day. While I love traveling with her, there’s no denying it’s going to be a different dynamic than a trip with your guy friends, but I find that it brings us together in a good way. Experiencing the world with your wife can be a lot of fun, if you know how to plan it right!

  • Advice for Success in Selecting The Perfect Business Partner

  • Tips For Making Pool Cleaning Healthier and Easier

Quickly though pool owners begin to realize that owning a swimming pool requires constant maintenance. Luckily though there are solutions that make it easier and healthier so that you can focus on enjoying it more.

  • Conserving Water and Maximizing Shine with Armor All Ultra Shine Wash Wipes

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Armor All. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Like many other parts of the country, California continues to be under water restrictions and while we've had a lot of rain recently that doesn't mean we can start wasting water again. As a result, my car looks terrible. It has dust, pollen, bird stuff, road grime all over, and ironically even beads of wax left over from my last car wash months and months ago. I've avoided regularly washing my car like I once did because frankly it's appalling how much water is wasted that way. While commercial, automatic car washes are far more efficient with water than washing at home with a hose and bucket, it's still a huge waste of water. That's why I was excited to try the new Armor All Ultra Shine Wash Wipes when they asked me to try them out recently.
