Just a brief little note to let my readers know that my blog will be in a brief little hiatus. I had the flu a few weeks back, which flared my CIU badly and then flared up a few other health concerns.
My “day job” also is rather hectic right now as we’re a bit shorthanded with a couple girls preparing for stork deliveries and the workload never slowed down during the winter and is picking up for summer already.
I promise to be back soon as I get my health back under control and feel more in sorts and can focus on my posts so they make sense.
Yes, you can make Alfredo sauce at home yourself. And it is ah-maz-ing! I actually love this more than pre-made Alfredo sauce and the Alfredo sauce on pasta in most restaurants.
Life molds art often. One instance of this was a trip to NYC in March 2011. I went to attend a record release party for Ariel Aparicio. I also went to meet a man (Charlie) in person who would become my best friend. Yes, I’m one of those people who meets strange men and women on the Internet. I’ve met several people I’ve been friends with online – some have panned out to be great friends, others are crazier than batshit.
West Virginia has a Scottish Heritage Festival every summer. It’s a blast to go to and there’s some great food, great music, and great fun. I had my first welsh cakes there a few years ago and fell in love. They’re just a tad sweet and keep well. Read More
Disclosure: I received the Cassani Fogless Shatterproof Shower Mirror free, but paid shipping, from the Cassani Company to review through Tomoson for an honest review.
The Cassani Shatterproof Fogless Shower Mirror is a lightweight nifty little addition to the shower. It weighs in at just over 6 ounces and measures 7.5 x 5.7 x 0.1 inches. Yes, this mirror is really that thin and that lightweight! It comes with a stainless steel hook to hang it and a stainless steel razor hook as well. These are adhesive. Cassani recommends cleaning the shower wall well with rubbing alcohol before applying the hooks. I haven’t used the hooks yet. I use Command Hooks in my shower, which have stood up well for 2 years so far for other purposes. My Command Hook holds the mirror just fine. The razor hook also does not hold my Venus razor, so I’ve not used it either. My razor just falls right out. So I don’t recommend the razor hook at all. The hook for the mirror seems to hold the mirror well from just me holding it in my hand.
I have dropped the Cassani mirror from a 6 foot height numerous times onto a laminate floor to test the shatterproof claim, both flat and on its edge. It hasn’t shattered and there aren’t even any dings that I can see. I’ve only used it in the shower once since receiving it, but ran the shower for a few minutes a second time. It has not fogged up either time on me.
Cassani recommends giving it a little rinse with warm water and rubbing your palm over it as it runs under water as needed to clean it, using no soap or cleaning products on it including cloth. Also from the Cassani literature: “Additional Cleaning – The ongoing problem with *all* fogless shower mirrors is that they don’t last forever, but the way to extend their lives longer is with the rinse and wipe technique above and also giving it a light wash with 50/50 vinegar and warm water.”
For the price, which is currently $13.99 plus shipping on Amazon, I’d consider purchasing this again. We’ve not had much luck finding a good fogless bathroom mirror of late and have gone through two in as many years trying to find a new one.
So, you all might want to know a little bit about me, right? Let’s hop right into the introduction! You might learn more than you ever wanted to know. Read More
I received The Sorcery Code by Dima Zales for free on Kindle from the Author and Tomoson to review.
I enjoyed reading about Blaise, the sorcerer, and his attempt to create a means of sharing magic with the commoners. Enough so that I will likely purchase the next book to see where he heads with the story. Read More
