Lately, there seems to be a lot that’s “new” about faucets. That might seem strange to you. It’s a faucet – water comes out, end of story, right?  In fact, there is a little more to it than that as technology has become more prominent in the kitchen…right down to the once-simple faucet.

Getting Ready for the (14th!) Ride of a Lifetime

Every year I try to think of something inspirational to say about why I ride for MS. As some of you may know, my mother has MS, and is benefitting from the therapy she has undergone over the years – therapy that’s possible in part because of the money we help raise. Having Multiple Sclerosis […]

We had some items shipped to us recently and were intrigued by these cardboard “pyramids.”  How on earth could these little cardboard “hole-y triangles” […]
