What to buy for the man in your life, for Christmas.

What to buy for the man in your life, for Christmas.       Men can be tricky to buy gifts for. Most often we give the “it doesn’t matter” or “i don’t need anything” when loved ones or friends ask us what we want. We provide little to no help. Fear not friends, I am here to save the day!

I hope with this blog and the addition of our in store Christmas gift registry, we can take care of the tedious task of guessing when you shop.     ...

Driving around with my wife and kid looking for...

     When I regained my ability to speak, I asked my wife “are you sure”? She wanted to do some of her own research, otherwise she was all in. This is it, this is a real thing. At least, it is a real idea. The most real idea I had ever had. We both hit our respective computers and began doing nightly research.
