Thick, Soft, Warm Socks made from Bison (Buffalo) Down #comfysocks @unitedbyblue

January 11th, 2016 · No Comments · Conservation

When you think of luxurious socks, you’ll usually think of sheep and goats. Sheep’s wool has had a monopoly on warmth for centuries, while the wool from cashmere goats are what people think of for softness. The one animal that people don’t usually think for both warmth and softness of is the American Bison. But […]

Robot Stuffed Toy with a heart #kausbot #kauzkrew

November 27th, 2015 · No Comments · Breast Cancer, Cancer, Children's Charities, Conservation, World Hunger

It’s so hard to find a stuffed toy that’s very unique anymore. Everywhere you go you see the same dogs and bears, most of which were mass produced in an assembly line and churned out thousands at a time. Contrast that to Kauzbots, one of the most unique stuffed toys I’ve seen. They’re actually not […]

Environmentally Friendly Batteries (AAA, AA, C, D, 9V) from PerfPower Go Green

July 10th, 2013 · No Comments · Autism, Conservation

I admit, I still feel a lot of angst when I finish off a Duracell or Energizer battery and throw it in the trash. Even though, supposedly, it’s not as bad to throw them in the trash nowadays as it was before because there are fewer toxic chemicals that can poison wildlife or waterways, it […]

Cold Winter Got You Down? Carry Some of the Beach with You!

March 2nd, 2013 · No Comments · Conservation

 Every so often when I visit the beach on an especially relaxing vacation, I’ll scoop up some shells or some sand and bring it home with me. At the time, my thought is that if I’m ever stressed or need a reminder of more calm times, I’ll look at them and a piece of my […]

It’s not too early to start thinking about trimming the Christmas tree (okay, maybe it is, but I’m thinking about it anyway). This year, the Statue of Liberty-Ellis Island Foundation is selling a unique ornament and bookmark to celebrate the Statue of Liberty. Both pieces of art are handcrafted AND made in the USA by […]

Rent College Textbooks at Chegg – 5% coupon good all of August 2012

August 1st, 2012 · No Comments · AIDS, Conservation, Uncategorized

I’ve been on a housecleaning tear lately, and one of the things I started to do was throw out my old business school textbooks. I’m not sure why I still had them on my bookshelf; the books are all outdated, they’re not relevant to anything I’m doing, there is absolutely no resale value in them, […]

Frequent Walking Miles, Frequent Running Miles, and Frequent Biker Miles with an iPhone and Android App!

June 6th, 2012 · 1 Comment · AIDS, Autism, Conservation, World Hunger

I admit, I’m a frequent flyer mile junkie. I am a member of every hotel, airline, rental car and restaurant program out there. I will go out of my way to book a flight on a carrier I know is giving me miles, even if it’s a few dollars more than one. I guess I […]
