The One about the Shimano SH-XC30 SPD Mountain Bike Shoes

The Shimano SH-XC30 SPD Mountain Bike shoes have been my main shoe to use for commutes or for riding. While I do have Shimano road shoes, I tend to do a lot of riding through the city and not in areas where there are straight riding without stopping. I’m constantly having to release and if it’s in an area where traffic is bad, having to walk, which I can’t do […]

The One about smart Magazine

Many years ago, when it came to men’s shopping magazines, I used to purchase “Vitals Man” and “Cargo Magazine”. These magazines were literally the goto magazines during the mid-2000’s that told men where to shop for a variety of products plus articles that appealed to different men… while “Vitals Man” was more on the high end and more mature, “Cargo Magazine” was for the men in their ’20s or ’30s.  […]

The One about the Philips HD3095/87 Electric Multi-Cooker

Having used the Philips HD3095/87 Electric Multi-Cooker for nearly a month now, I have grown to like this multi-cooker but also get slightly annoyed by certain aspects of it. a.
