Gadget Review: ThinOptics Glasses

ThinOptics-iPhone-Cases-x2

Do you wear reading glasses? In my new “old age,” I am finding it difficult to see small things, such as fine print, and I have noticed that this is especially problematic at restaurants with menus. Because of this, in addition to all my other daily carry items, I have added a small pair of reading glasses. Continue reading

The Gift of Laughter for the Holidays

Prank Star
