flat Olaf

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

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

Sunday, September 28, 2014

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. 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.

you can be whatever you want to be

Thursday, June 26, 2014

"You can be whatever you want to be." I'm sure you've heard it a bunch of times. It's not really true, is it? You can try your heart out, but it may not be the best use of your time and effort if you're no good at it.

Be what God intended for you to be. For those who would rather not put it that way, then here is another way to say it. Discover your gifts, find what you're good at and what you enjoy doing. What are you passionate about? Develop those gifts. Because you are gifted in that way, for the same effort, you will be better at it than one who is not gifted in that way. In other words, you will have a greater return for your efforts.

Now if you are exceptionally gifted and society does not have a nice little niche for you, then you may just have to carve out a niche for yourself. But until you have the resources to carve that niche, you may have to work at something you're not so passionate about. That's OK. If God intended a path for you, walk in faith and you will get to your destination.

Please don't just "be whatever you want to be."  Be what God intends you to be.
