More Juice, Less Waste, Better Taste

Juicepresso

The first juicer I ever used was a screaming behemoth, by the time I lifted it onto the counter, had my veg ready and flicked the switch, I was already a bit daunted. And then, what seemed like a dozen carrots later, as I enjoyed my half-cup of juice, I tried to smile and really enjoy it, because I knew I would be spending the next half-hour cleaning up the mess I’d made procuring it. I’m sorry giant juicer—it just didn’t work out. I returned it, and while I still really liked the idea of … [Read more...]

phantom glass

Genius. I don't use the word often, unless I'm being sarcastic. But seriously, I think it applies to the fellow who invented Phantom Glass. I love hearing Arlene Dickenson (of Dragon's Den and many other non-TV things fame) say that the country will be in good hands when she sees a young entrepreneur come on the show to present their product or business. That is exactly how I felt when I met with Richard Waters, the inventor of Phantom Glass. When Richard told me he was only 20 years old, … [Read more...]

A Place Where TV Watching Gets Social

beamly social network

My mom, brother and I used to watch episodes of Seinfeld, 90210, Melrose Place and Road to Avonlea together each week, while I was growing up. TV watching was a fun, social family activity during those times. We're a family that likes to make comments and jokes and ask questions about the shows while we're watching them. It's become 2nd nature to me to watch TV shows that way. And, knowing that someone else would instantly get what I was talking about with a TV show or know why a "puffy shirt" … [Read more...]
