Wednesday Words: Be A Thunderstorm!

Be a Thunderstorm......

Be dangerous and unpredictable....

And make A LOT OF NOISE!
- Mr. Bixler in My Girl


I have always liked these lines from the movie My Girl. A thunderstorm annouces itself with lightning and thunder. It gets noticed and grabs your attenion. And no two thunerstorms are alike. I like that. These lines are saying, don't get into a hum drum rut. Get out and enjoy life, let your spirit be one that imprints your memory in others and shares a light that brightens where you have been. Be one of a kind and don't follow a crowd. Be unforgettable for all the right reasons. Be a thunderstorm!

It seems everything we have these days, charges by USB and you have to have adapters to be able to plug things into a wall socket. If your household is like ours there are charging cables in outlets all over the house and everyone is always running around to gather their devices. I received the Volmate 8-Port Family-Size Desktop Charger to review and it reins in your devices to one place.

Why Is There So Much Rudeness and Hatred? I Dare You...

I see it everyday. Someone posts something on Facebook or Twitter and it never fails. Someone feels the need to make hateful, mean, rude comments. WHY? I have to wonder do these people speak to others like that in their face to face encounters? We all know that SOME do. We are bombarded with the videos of situations getting out of control because someone decided to step over a line. There was a time though, when that behavior was a rarity and not something we would see everyday. I'd like to say I am still shocked by terrible behavior, but the truth is, I am more surprised when I witness decency.

Keep Rolling! With The Mini Bike Pump From Life On Rides

This post contains affiliate links

I love the freedom of jumping on my bike and just GOING. As a kid I would ride all day, never giving a thought to what I would do if something happened. I was super fortunate that nothing ever did! Now being older and hopefully a little wiser, I do think about the what-ifs and carry a few things with me. One thing I had not really thought about was a tire pump. I received the Mini Bicycle Tire Pump from Life On Rides to review and I made me wonder at all the times I took off with out thinking about something happening to the tires!
