How to Assemble an IKEA Markus Office Chair Video

How to Assemble an IKEA Markus Office Chair Video

I have returned to sitting at my office desk. The main reason is so I can share the same space with Sedagive? — she’s significantly shorter than I am and my standing setup made it impossible for her to be near me. Our office area isn’t big enough for BOTH of us to have standing […]

Reverse osmosis filter change after 6 months

Reverse osmosis filter change after 6 months

Long story short: The water where I live in Minnesota is terrible. I bought and installed a six-stage reverse osmosis filter instead of buying bottled water or having water delivered to the home.

10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge – Day 1

10,000 Kettlebell Swing Challenge – Day 1

Omron HBF-306C Fat Loss Monitor Review

PlayStation 4 Initial Impressions

PlayStation 4 Initial Impressions

My Sony PlayStation 4 console arrived on launch day. I’d pre-ordered the PS4 console and the game WatchDogs from Amazon in October. Unfortunately Watch Dogs was delayed until 2014, and Amazon downgraded me to a console-only pre-order and refunded me the difference. Getting a PS4 without WatchDogs is better than no PS4 at all, right? […]

Third Friday of the Month: Check Your Optics Batteries!

Third Friday of the Month: Check Your Optics Batteries!

When I first started shooting I though night sights on my Glock 26 was as high tech as I’d ever go. As I’ve trained more (a lot more) and gotten older (a lot older) I’ve realized the value of red dot optics and reflex sights. The downside to running optics is that they have batteries […]
