The company announced Shatner's [...]

- We've gone through many brands of watches and daily wear plus saltwater plus sun doesn't seem to be a great combo for many brands. I found this brand and got Scott one to replace his old one and he loves it. Waterproof and shock proof, these watches are made to last. They also come in a ton of great colors and styles, Scott loves the gray and blue one I got him. These are made in Mali from recycled flip flops and the colors go with everything. - We learned about these awesome bag clips from our good friends over at Where the Coconuts Grow. They come in many sizes so are great for everything from a small bag of Goldfish to a big back of tortilla ships. They offer a much better seal than traditional bag clips and take up hardly any drawer space at all. Love these things.

If you caught the commercial for last night’s CSI: Miami during Sunday’s Super Bowl, thought about tuning in because the murder-in-space case looked potentially awesome but missed the show, relax. You didn’t miss much. Space tourism was an interesting set-up: A man falls from the sky and Horatio and Co. determined that he was a passenger on a private spaceflight along with a fictional B-grade action star and two pilots. But David Caruso and his sunglasses did not ride the fictional Vomit...

My dad grew up in the Great Depression and had nothing, not even his father’s name. An illegitimate son, he had to succeed on his own. He walked railroad tracks to pick up loose coal that fell off trains. He worked night shifts in Ohio steel mills. He could not afford college, so he attended flight school, earned his wings, joined the Navy and, when World War II broke out, was recruited into the U.S. Marines as a pilot to fly photo reconnaissance in the South Pacific. He flew the large,...
