Plastic Toys Become Dog Sculptures

Recycling: Old Plastic Toys Get A New Life As A Dog

If you have young children, you probably know what it’s like to have itty-bitty toys all around your house. Whether it’s little plastic numbers, pieces of broken figures or used crayons, that stuff just seems to accumulate everywhere. My son, who is ten years old, has gotten to the age where he is more interested in video games, computers and skateboarding, so I don’t have very much of that little stuff laying around anymore, but when he was young, those toys covered his bedroom floor. ...

Photographs Of WWII Bunkers

Photography: Abandoned and Lonely World War II Bunkers

Normally the words “beautiful” and “war” do not go together in the same sentence. However, this stunning photography of old abandoned World War II bunkers is truly beautiful, in a historic kind of way. When I was attending University, for a short while, I was a history major. I changed my studies to Math and International Business after a year. The main reason I made that change was because so much of history in this world is about war. I don’t fight against war because ...

No Internet Access In Egypt

Egypt: A Nation Forced Offline

Since this is not a political blog, we don’t usually write about what happens in the governments around the world. However, we do write about social media, and when the government in a country completely shuts off access to not only Twitter and Facebook, but all the Internet, it becomes almost our responsibility to write about it. If you are tapped into Twitter, or if you watch the news, you are aware of what is going on in Egypt right now. As my friend Stan ...

Valentine's Day Beating Origami Heart

How To: Make a Beating Origami Heart for Your Valentine

Valentine’s Day will be here soon, and if you are like most people, you haven’t yet figured out the perfect gift for your sweetheart. We tell our sweeties all year long how much we love them, but then the one day comes when we are supposed to show them with a gift, and suddenly it gets all stressful. A lot of men believe that in order for their gift to be considered a good one, it has to cost a lot of money. I know ...

Wedding In Freezing Siberia River

A Wedding In Cold Water: Would You Get Married Here?

When you spend all day surfing the Internet looking for interesting material, like I do, you come across some pretty unusual things that people do. I always say that after some of the things I’ve read, nothing surprises me anymore. However, usually as soon as I say that, I read something that makes me think, “Whaaaaaat?” This is a perfect example. I just finished writing a post about sunshine and the happiness it brings to our life. Now I’m writing about a couple who chose ...

6 Month Family Technology Cleanse

This Family Unplugged For 6 Months & Lived To Tell About it

Hmm… unplugging for six months? Are you kidding me? I can’t even imagine unplugging for one week. I’m so connected to my online world that I sleep with my phone. I’m not the only one though, as it turns out, it’s a habit that a lot of people have. Technology and our gadgets are no longer part of our life, but in many cases, they are becoming our life. Is that a good thing? Is that a bad thing? Experts say that as long as ...

Kraak Smaak Squeeze Me Video

Squeeze Me: The Coolest Music Video Flipbook Ever

Music videos are getting more and more creative by the day, and I truly enjoy that. I remember not too long ago when music videos were just a bunch of exclusive mansions, high definition footage and a whole lot of girls. However, that has somewhat shifted in the last few years. We have started to see creative and sometimes hilarious videos that you actually want to watch over and over again, and not just because the music is good. The real question I think every ...

Sunshine Makes Us Happy

Add Some Happy Sunshine To Your Life Today!

If there is one thing I will always remember about the winter of 2011, it will be the unseasonably cold weather. Here in the south, we aren’t used to it being so cold for so long, and I’m very excited for spring to come back! Yesterday, we got a glimpse of it. It was sunny and beautiful outside. It was warm enough to just wear a t-shirt and open the sunroof on the car. I was bee-bopping around and giggling all day long. Is it ...

The Necktie Tying Robot Machine

Why Knot? The Geek Way to Tie a Necktie

Have you ever noticed that a lot of times in movies, the woman makes a romantic gesture to her man by seductively walking up to him in the morning and tying his necktie? I’ve always been fascinated by that because I don’t understand it. I actually don’t understand why some men have to wear ties in the first place. Isn’t it uncomfortable to have that piece of fabric wrapped around your neck all day? I’ve never tied a man’s tie, but then again, I’ve never ...

Short Twitter Usernames Are Best

How Important Is Your Twitter Username?

I remember back in the 6th grade, Calvin Klein jeans were very popular. All the girls in “the club” wore them, and I begged my mother to take me shopping for a pair so I could be cool. Now that I’m an adult, I’m noticing that there are still things in life that can make us cool, but it’s no longer as easy as buying a pair of blue jeans. Now much of our coolness has transitioned to being part of our online persona. It ...

Alertron Smartphone Finding Device

Alertron: The Bluetooth Babysitter For Your Phone

It’s interesting to me that as the number of gadgets we get grows, so do the number of products that help us keep up with them. We depend on our technology for almost everything these days, and it’s only natural that we would lose our gadgets from time to time. Last week I wrote about a remote control that finds itself when you lose it. I’m sure that little goody will come in handy for a lot of people! Today, it’s all about our smartphones. ...

Handmade Typography City Maps

Design: City Maps Hand-Woven From Typography

Lately, I’ve seen a lot of people go back and forth online debating about what typography actually is. I guess since I’m not a designer, I am excused from not knowing how the traditionalists view it. To me, typography is text in different colors, fonts, shapes and sizes put together to create some sort of communication. Look around you now, I bet you’ll see several different typography examples without even having to turn your head. Misty touched on this in her article entitled Typography Everywhere ...

Crochet Plastic Bag Blanket Bedroll

Help the Homeless & the Environment with Plastic Bags

We are very passionate about helping homeless men, women and children. It’s hard to imagine what being homeless would be like unless we are put in that situation. Only because I spend so much time assisting people in that predicament, I have learned not to take the simple things in life for granted. For example, my cozy bed, the space heater under my desk and my refrigerator stocked with food are all things that most homeless people only dream about. I know that once I ...
