Lyman Orchards 2017 Pumpkin Picking

Join us on this trip to Lyman Orchards during October 2017.

We had a great time on an unusually warm New England fall pumpkin picking trip.

We ate apple donuts, ice cream, drank apple cider, walked through a corn maze, rode in a hay ride around the property, checked out the pumpkin patch, visited the store and picked out some pumpkins!

SCREW IT! Ryobi 4V Screwdriver Review

SCREW [drive] IT!

What’s up everyone. In case you didn’t know, our family owns and operates a small online boutique called WoodyThings.com where we offer personalized, wooden items ranging from decorative birdhouses to retirement chest and barware. So every now and again you’ll find me doing a review for a tool we typically use in our workshop. That’s where this review comes in.

As we make items that require us to drill or screw in tight spaces (easy now!) we found that having a small, handheld [powered] screwdriver is a lifesaver! For the past few years I’ve defaulted to the ‘man up!’ strategy and just used a screwdriver. Well, after several hundred boxes and much cussing when I can’t quite reach the angle or torque needed, I caved and decided to pick up a hand-held, powered screwdriver.  Continue reading “SCREW IT!

2017 Three-Day Getaway in Hudson Valley

This summer feels like it flew by. Between doing a bit of fishing, driving the kids to outdoor track and field, volunteering at community events, going camping and of course, working, this summer was here and gone before we knew it! But a few weeks before summer escaped us we managed to take a two-some three-day getaway to one of our favorite areas, Hudson Valley, New York.

On the first day we stopped by one of our favorite delis (www.FrancosDeliandPizza.com) in Danbury Connecticut, and on the way to New York we checked out some trains at the Danbury Railway Museum. Continue reading “2017 Three-Day Getaway in Hudson Valley”

Angry Orchard Visit, Summer 2017

I’m not a beer snob by any means, but over the past few years my wife and I have made an effort to visit and check out the local breweries and wineries. On this particular week (late August 2017) we checked out a relatively local spot, which many of you have probably heard about. We stayed in Hudson Valley and paid a visit to Angry Orchard in Walden, New York.

The entire experience was awesome!

First off, the weather was on point. It was about 78 degrees, not too humid, a calm breeze kept us cool, and the day was mostly sunny. I’m no weather person so I don’t know if the right term is partly cloudy or mainly sunny. Whatever, check out the pictures or video below and you can see just how beautiful the day was.

Sentry BT250 Bluetooth Headphones Review

I love music.

I listen when I’m on the road, editing videos, working out, or listening to podcasts at work. With that said, there’s many headphones for many people, and they all serve different purposes. These headphones serve a specific purpose for me: to use when I’m exercising and don’t want to lug around a smartphone. These are the set I’ve been sticking in my gym bag, and charge once or twice a week.

I workout for about 45 mins 2-3 times a week (trying to lose some girth!) and thats about as long as these headphones go in between charges.

These Sentry Bluetooth Headphones are cheap (under $20 USD), don’t take up too much space, and are easy (intuitive) to operate.
