ScotteVest

I have been using a SCOTTEVEST for over three years and have been actively wearing one almost every day for over a year and half . I thoroughly enjoy the practical nature of this vest and how it allows me to operate at my best preparedness each day. Most people who know me known that I will probably wear one each day and I am always willing to share my experiences with the garment. So after many conversations and recommendations to others to purchase a SCOTTEVEST, I thought I should establish myself as an affiliate and begin sharing my experiences on this blog to help others with regards to the SCOTTEVEST. More to come...

Inspired Bikes

Enjoy.

Make shift baby monitor

We were baby sitting today and it was time for the baby to go down for a nap upstairs. We planned on being downstairs and I wanted to be able to hear if the baby was crying or what ever. Since we don't have a baby monitor I took one of our mobile phones and called my phone to create an audio connection. I then muted the microphone on my phone and placed the unmuted phone in the room with the baby. This gave us a make-shift baby monitor. I hear her talk a little before she went to sleep and then heard her talking when she woke up. Success!

All you need to do the same is two mobile phones, preferably on the same mobile network. I know I am probably not the first person to discover this, but I thought I would share anyway. Enjoy.

Ravenstown

Zune

So one of my new mobile gadgets is a Zune by Microsoft. I was in need of a replacement mp3 player since my iPod was not working properly. I looked at many options, but settled on this unit because it gives me 80GB of storage and was used on craigslist for a good price, $100.

After a little work, I successfully downloaded the zune desktop software and had the device reformatted for my use. It holds all my music and my begining selection of videos, the first season of The Office.

I liked the idea of the unique social feature where you can connect to other zune users via wifi if their wifi is enabled and in range of your wifi enabled zune. I tried it out for the first time at the Easten Market in DC. When I arrived with Sarah at the Easten Market, I enabled the wifi and tried scanning for other zune users in the area. I was unsuccessful in funding anyone else with a zune,via wifi, and only seemed to annoy Sarah with my geekyness in the process.

So for now it is my trusty media player and the new games that arrived with the software update a few weeks ago are about as addicting as solitaire on a pc.

That's it for now. If you are reading this and own a zune, I encourage you to turn on your wifi the next time you go out with you zune. You might stumble on another zuner.

Dogs rule the barbeque

So yesterday we enjoyed our second barbecue of the summer at the Longs'. This barbeque's theme was Mexican, but with two entertaining dogs it quickly can become the dog show.

These pictures show Chester, the pug and Bella, the Havanese.
