20140911 072229 Android - Best of 2014 All the Other Stuff20140911 182519 Android - Best of 2014 All the Other StuffCharles Viancin Silicon Lids-The lids are made with food grade silicone and come in many shapes
styles and colors. I had the Fall and winter ones and I have fallen in LOVE! I use a ton of saran wrap because I can never find the right lid for my bowl or Tupperware. that is never going to be a problem again. The lids lie flat on top of any kid of bowl and they really do seal. I have added a picture of me picking the bowl up by the lid, I am not sure exactly why it works but it does and I LOVE LOVE LOVE these. No more plastic wrap!


Smart Glow Exergen TemporalScanner – We suffered though our share of colds this fall and holiday season. Tech Monkey was sick over Thanksgiving and Agent Daddy was sick over Christmas. But in both instances I found the updated version of the original TemporalScanner™  to be the best thermometer I have ever used. I was able to take the temps while the sicko was sleeping and read the
answer eve in the dark. this one comes with four ways to make it even easier to take a temperature:
Smart Glow Exergen TemporalScanner
·         A softly illuminated display for easy reading in any light – perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant or sleeping teenager in a darkened room
·         Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child, teen or grumpy adult.
·         Automatically retains the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression
·         Ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes
The Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner™ is an infrared thermometer which captures temperature by scanning the heat which is emitted from the forehead, via the temporal artery. Favored by renowned pediatrician and author Dr. Laura Jana for its ease of use1, temporal artery thermometry is among the most accurate and convenient methods to take a sick child’s temperature.I know thet my Dors office has switched to this methond and now I know why. I am in love with this new gadget.
You can go find one for your self at most major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s, the Smart Glow thermometer’s suggested retail price is $49.99.

Nutri Bullet RX– I am sure, if you have not been living under a rock the past 10 years, that you have
20140926 062649 Android - Best of 2014 All the Other Stuffheard of the Magic Bullet or the Nutri Bullet. You may not have heard of the Nutri Bullet RX. If you love smoothies you need this machine and no other. I have owned juicers, blenders and even hand held emersion blenders and non of them give me the consistent perfection that the Nutri Bullet gives me.

First of all, I only have to load my favorite things in the blending cup and then put it on the  base. The Nutri Bullet RX starts and stops itself. Yep you heard me it starts and stops by itself. It has amazing little sensors that when the cup is in place, turn on. Then when the mixture is to the right consistency it turns itself off. No more baby sitting the blender. Agent Daddy has fallen in love with it as well. We love our morning smoothies and this makes it easy to do. Also this cup is so easy to clean. I am not sure how they managed it but the smoothie doesn’t stick to the inside. Just a rinse and we are ready to go again.

And by the way, it cost me, without insurance, less than getting them from the optometrist with insurance. I was so impressed. I am getting my sunglasses and Agent Daddy’s sunglasses next.

The lenders will probably base any decision on a few issues but the greatest will be your credit score. There are some loan merchants that will also look at your job history and make up your mind based on that but in many instances it will hinge on your report.
