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. I do not collect information on my readers. If cookies or other tracking stuff is used on my blogs it is due to BLOGGER not ME. Apparently the European Union's new rules state I need to inform you if cookies are being use. If they are it isn't byu me, consider yourself INFORMED.
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!

Hireko Assembled Zinc Putter (Right Hand)


I am sad to report that my putting is still only mediocre.  I had hoped for a golf miracle, you know splurge on equipment but never practice.  The putter has a nice weight and I got a good pendulum feel on it.  The price is aggressive and the feel is decent so it is a good value at $30.00
.


Assembly length: 34 inch
Apollo steel shaft and rubber grip
Right handed

Cuisinart Professional Brisk Grill Brush


This is a heavy duty grill brush.  It is solidly constructed, solid enough to use as a weapon if the zombie apocalypse catches you at your grill.   I like the red bristles, they make a point of them being red so if one comes off you will be able to see it on your grill.  This makes sense as I read an article online about the dangers of bristles adhering to food and being ingested to the detriment of the intestinal tract. This is a nice brush and will get a lot of use.

  • Strong stainless Steel brush construction
  • Nylon brisk brush bristles
  • Dual rubber grip handles
  • Hanging hook to store at grill

Philips 475400 75 Watt Equivalent Classic Glass PAR30S Dimmable LED Indoor/Outdoor Flood Light Bulb, Bright White, 2 Pack


This light bulb gives a strong light and is dimmable which makes it ideal for high hat type lights.  It has the beauty of long life which, for me, makes LED lights my first choice.  I hate changing light bulbs, particularly with high ceilings.   The bulb feels heavy like the old outdoor spots felt and it does state that the bulb can be used in wet locations.  I like the bulb and it’s cost of operation but mostly due to it’s long life expectancy.

  • Estimated yearly energy cost: $1.20 (based on 3 hours/day, 11 cent/kWh, costs depend on rates and use)
  • The classic glass design provides a bright, white light, perfect for general room lighting
  • Longer lifetime and uses up to 90% less energy than traditional sources
  • Ideal for use in recessed cans and track light fixture applications
  • Suitable for wet locations

Tommy Hilfiger Classic 21" Expandable Hardside Spinner, Red


This suitcase deserves a WOW!  it may be the best looking suitcase I have ever seen, let alone owned.  It really does spin on the wheels and the move very smoothly.  The suitcase expands with a zipper for the larger loads.  It is separated into sides with hold downs that have pockets on either side.   This is not going to be mistaken for someone else's suitcase, it is really good looking.  I will report back if it doesn't hold up.

LEGO Star Wars Resistance Transport Pod 75176 Building Kit (294 Piece)




I just reviewed the First Order Heavy Scout Walker and this will be somewhat repetitive. I don’t know if the Disney connection of owning the Star Wars franchise is impacting the Lego line or not.  This unit has lots of pieces and that is always good with Legos.  The Heavy Waker  did not impress me with it’s design..  It doesn’t appear to have the thoughtful and often realistic nature of traditional Lego models.  This resistance transport pod I got at the same time seems like it had a more thoughtful design.  Another thing I noticed is the packaging seems to be decreasing in quality.  The packaging does not in any way deter the function or fun of the Lego set but it would hopefully tie in with a price decrease but I haven’t noticed that.   So as always, Lego makes a good, challenging toy that provokes learning when your kid says the heck with the diagram and creates his own walker, for that it gets the usual 5 stars plus they always enjoy the plastic missiles.  Characters included are Includes Finn and Rose minifigures plus a BB-8 figure
