FTC Disclosure

Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Columbia Men's Kersey RFID Blocking Extra-Capacity Slimfold Wallet


The wallet looks good which is much better than my previous RFID blocking wallet.  It also held all my cards which are not inconsiderable.  It is not paranoia if they really are out to get you and if you are in an urban area it is certainly possible to be targeted by a "sniffer".  Since some credit cards have RFID chips.  Realistically most RFID chip you may have are probably encrypted and not susceptible to sniffing.   However if I am going to pay $25 for a new wallet, I may as well get one that blocks sniffing.

Bushnell 16MP Trophy Cam HD Essential E3 Trail...


This is a very impressive gadget.  I have seen these trail cameras on TV but have never owned one.  The camera seems very durable.  The setup instructions were a bit obtuse but not terribly so.  It took awhile to set up the camera but once set up, it seems to work ok. I experimented with the settings and they appear to work.   One interesting note, you can use a standard SD card with this but if you want to avoid going out and pulling the SD card or bringing the camera in and connecting it to your computer here is an idea.  I put an eye.fi mobi card in which is a wireless SD card.  If you set the software on your phone or tablet you can have the photos transmitted to those devices automatically.  This assumes where you are putting the camera is within your wifi envelope.  If it is, mine is, then you can bring your photos up on your phone without removing the SD card or the camera. This works as it is how I am using the camera. Well it worked in setup mode.  It did not work in actual "on" mode. So perhaps someone can make it work but I didn't.

Pro Aegis 15.6" Laptop Backpack With Rfid Pocket Backpack


My traditional laptop carry bag is nowhere as nice as this.  One of the things I like the most is the strap that allows you to slip it over your rolling carry-on handle.   There is plenty of room and padding for my laptop and a pocket for my tablet and my phone and thumb drives.   This is well thought out and looks good as well.  Best of all it keeps your hands free and you feel a lot less encumbered when traveling.

Sabrent 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs


Sabrent 7-Port USB 3.0 Hub with Individual Power Switches and LEDs included 12V/4A power adapter (HB-UMA7)

This is a nice unit.  There is no setup.  I plugged it into my laptop and into my surge and all my devices worked.  I tried the switches and they all worked.  The 7 port is great as there always seems to be something new that needs plugged into a USB port. The power cord struck me as a bit of a nuisance until I realized that having its own power supply allows charging of those devices that are to demanding for a standard USB hub.  I have a more portable Sabrent unit for travel but this one will be a fixture on my desk.

  • 7 Ports (output); 1 Port (input)
  • Blue LED indicates power status for each port
  • Supports transfer speeds up to 5Gbps (USB 3.0), 480Mbps (USB 2.0), 12Mbps (USB 1.1)
  • 12V 4 Amp power adapter included to power up high powered devices.
  • Easy to setup: Plug & Play and Hot Swappable

Kaytee Gold Spray Millet


I like to feed the birds.  Normally I use just black sunflower seeds.  I added this four days ago as it seemed like a good idea.  I have not seen one bird on it.  I don’t know if I am displaying it incorrectly but generally when I put out suet or other treats the birds find it within 24 hours.  This was serious money AT $130 for 20 pounds which I had hoped would translate into more birds at the feeder.  So far not so good.

Maybe I hung it wrong???


·                        Highly palatable treat
·                        Good for encouraging weaning and getting birds to eat
·                        Adds recommended nutritional variety to a bird's diet
·                        Ideal for bonding and playtime
·                        Natural with no artificial colors or flavors
·                        Contains 20 Pounds
