Get In Touch With Your Inner Spy with Canary

spying on my baby from work.

Yes Canary is an all in one security system.  It’s got all the bells and whistles you expect from a top notch security system like: hi resolution camera video and audio recording motion-detection 90+ decibel siren night vision …but it is so MUCH more than that! First of all, let’s just say it’s a thing of beauty while being totally discreet.  In fact for the first few weeks my family thought it was nothing more than an air freshener and paid it no mind. While I should have felt guilty for letting them believe that, it’s not a completely lie. […]

The Future of TV is coming to Best Buy


A television is no longer just a television anymore. It became abundantly clear when we were searching for a TV for our new playroom. Everyone in the house had an opinion on what the TV needed to have, from screen size to pixels to how many HDMI ports as well as wi-fi!  With everyone’s list of wants, the pressure was overwhelming to make everyone happy while maintaining my budget. Luckily for my family I am also of the mindset that certain things are an investment, at the right price.  We invested in our first VIZIO SmartCast TV at that time, […]

Bring More Travel to Your Family

My world traveler waiting for his next flight.

Having grown up with 2 very hard working parents, my family and I didn’t travel much.  Yes we did a trip to Niagara Falls one year, even a road trip to Florida, but to say we explored would be a major no. They both were more of a step foot and touch the ground before we turned around and went back home.  It sounds rather sad, but it’s to no fault of my parents.  We were very poor then and they had hungry mouths to feed but travel was a thing that I only read about in books and they […]
