Some Fantastic Headphones

The headphones I’ve been using for quite a while have been very cheap earbuds. They’ve been wearing out and I’ve been meaning get some better ones for quite a while. I have been particularly interested in trying out some in ear headphones. A couple weeks ago I buckled down and did some fairly extensive research […]

A Tragedy May Have Struck

It’s too early to tell for sure, but my favorite hand soap may have ceased to exist. I’ve mentioned this before: Bath and Body Works moisturizing hand soap has been the best hand soap I had ever used, hands down.
