9/11 - 16 Years Later



16 years ago today I had just walked to my second class that morning. I was a senior in high school. A teacher from the class I had just come from said nothing as he walked straight to the television to turn on the image of the first tower engulfed in flames. There was a silence that filled the room. Surely, these people will get out I remember thinking. Maybe a few in the building died during the impact, but it's over, right?

CaptainEco Shower Filter (with 5 Stage Filter)

 Enter the code AMZ20ORD for a 20% discount

WHY I WANTED TO USE A SHOWER FILTER:

   - I wanted a shower filter to remove chlorine and the cloudy white build up on shower screens.

   - I wanted soft, healthy skin and hair (particularly a problem for me in the winter).
     I read that a body absorbs more chlorine during a shower than by drinking a glass of tap water. A long, hot shower equals steam inhaled into lungs contains chlorine and disinfectant by products.

Kinzd Slim Leather Business Card Holder

I've been looking to pick up a business card holder for quite some time. The other day I was at a meeting handing out business cards, and I realized that I needed to step up my "game". Everyone else had thick business cards and I have business cards printed on paper with no case. This resulted in some of the card corners to be bent. I decided then that I was going to do something about it!

Kelley General Expandable 50' Garden Water Hose


Available for purchase by clicking the link:
 


MY REVIEW:
I really like these types of hoses for the convenience factor. This expandable hose is a quick way to water the plants or wash your car. It doesn't take up much room and it hides away or stores easily. I have several expandable hoses. Most are similar but good quality with good fittings. Some are a bit cheaper. This is a nice expandable hose. I would not leave this, or any, expandable hose out in the winter or exposed to the sun on a daily basis. It may be able to handle it, but it's not something I would recommend. The following is a list of pros and cons I've noted during my use with this hose.
