another lightweight scooter

SmartScoot: http://www.smartscoot.com/
I like the simplistic design and the use of stainless steel. It looks good as far as simple scooters go. It appears to be well-sized for adults. I think that it's quite suitable for going through indoor conventions, though there isn't any place for collecting stuff. You know, the freebies you get at conventions.

downsides:
I can see that is has almost no storage capacity (no place to put your stuff). Also, the "Y" configuration does not fold. The video shows it to be a bit awkward because it is an adult-sized frame. As with almost all compact scooters, I suspect there will be an "ouch" when going over bumps.


Merry Christmas

I know, we are still in Advent. But Christmas is so close!

My job has been good to me. But it has kept me very busy. As I try to catch up with life next week, I may not have the time to post, so I'm posting now to wish everyone a most wonderful Christmas season. May you have more hope. May you have something to look forward to. May your loved ones be close by, and safe. And most of all, may you grow ever closer to God.

Merry Christmas.


flat Olaf

Made my own Olaf for now. He's flat and fragile. But he looks happy anyways.

mobility scooter

Looks like this might be an improvement on the TravelScoot: the Supa Scoota

I will have to wait for time to test this product. I typically will not purchase a first-generation of any technology. I applaud those who do, because their money is what funds product improvements.

I'm an Olaf fan

I just watched the movie "Frozen" last week or so. My favorite character is Olaf. I think I'm in love. I'll have to keep an eye out for a REALLY GOOD action figure of this little guy. A quick browse through Amazon tells me that this could be difficult to find.

hmm...here is one

cardboard deer head trophy

Wednesday, August 06, 2014


One of my co-workers has a cardboard deer head trophy, medium and small sizes. It is very good looking.

So I found it online. There are other trophy head designs available such as moose, rhino, giraffe, elephant, and more; some in different colors. The store also has these handsome rhinos:
 

little speaker

Have you heard of the 808 CANZ portable speaker? It can be had for around $30. Check it out at Amazon. I'm not saying it's the best thing around, just that for the price, this little baby is satisfactory for toting around. You might find it at your local Sam's Club, Walmart, or Office Depot.
I also ran across reviews of the Logitech Ultimate Ears (UE) Mini Boom speaker. Seems like a good product. Pricing around $100. I'm just not willing to shell out that much, but if you are, check out the reviews for the Mini Boom.
