Jord Wood Watches

#JordWatch What do you give the man who has everything – namely you? I ask myself this all the time. My man is simple. He has tastes that run from the extremely geeky/nerdy spectrum to refined. He likes the nicer things but also is a minimalist. When I shop for him, I go for metaphor since that appeals to his creative side as well. For Valentine’s, I would like to give him the gift of time. What better way to show this than a gorgeous wood watch from Jord. In one beautiful piece of wearable art, the watch tells him that he is both unique and timeless.

The Majestic Athlete

I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I couldn’t swim and my physical prowess was limited to long distance running so surfing and sports were not really options. My allegiance to the Dodgers started with a trip to Dodger’s Stadium, a Dodger Dog and “hat day”. I married a lady who loved them as much as I do and have worked hard to indoctrinate my kids with the love of Dodger Blue! When we moved to Miami, this became more difficult and finding sports apparel for my kids became imperative.

Being Mobile

We have dreams. We want to travel and explore this world. We refuse to get comfortable. A few years ago, we experienced a physical set back when Paul was unable to walk for several months due to his back. He had hurt it to the point where his legs would give out and even simple mobility was compromised. We needed to install a portable wheelchair ramp and considered getting an electric motor scooter. Luckily, he was able to regain motion in both his legs and is better health than ever. However, this experience taught us how quickly things can change.

Fun And Vapin

I began smoking at a young age. The habit began as a secret and then evolved into a behavior that was entangled with daily activity. Drink a cup of coffee? Have a cigarette. Have a drink? Have a cigarette. Socialize with friends? Have a cigarette. I tried to limit my smoking to the evenings unless I was on vacation and then it was a free-for-all. Luckily, I quit 2 years ago and have not gone back once. However, that habit is still there and there are some days when the cravings are tough. Electronic Cigarettes lets me still enjoy the feel of smoking without having to leave the fun or smell like an ashtray.

Save on whatever you buy

How are you feeling? Wait, don’t answer that just yet. I can probably guess. Spent, right? Both in a literal and figurative sense, right?

A Gift Guide For The Cool Kid

I remember waking up on Christmas morning and tip-toeing down the long hallway to the living room where the tree was. Perhaps my memory has been colorized with hues of nostalgia but I can recall that the room glowed. The presents were everywhere and for good measure, Santa would usually leave a gift in the fireplace as if he dropped it or it was an after-thought. After that it was a day filled with board games and sad memories of a Gnip Gnop Game that never quite worked. Here are some gifts that are going to make the room glow for your kids!
