#GiftLikeaPRO With New Kitchen Appliances From Kenmore

2015-11-25 20.23.26

For the last year I’ve been extolling the virtues of Kenmore appliances as one of their brand ambassadors, and I’d like to reinforce the fact that I walk the walk as much as I talk the talk. We have a Kenmore oven, a Kenmore dishwasher, and a Kenmore induction cooktop in our kitchen, and we love them. So, it’s not hard to say good things about the brand and their products.

Welcome to WordsEye, currently in beta, where you can turn your words into images by the simple act of description.

Level Up Your Standing Desk With FluidStance

Fluidstance Level

I stand about 90% of the time without lowering the desk to sitting level (though after Gen Con this year I did have to take a seat for a couple of days), and occasionally I’ll lower it slightly to use the Wobble Stool or Focal Upright stool. Recently I got to try another option, one that keeps me on my feet but makes me a little more active while I type: the FluidStance Level. Continue reading

My Gen Con Bag of Essentials

Convention Bag

I’ve been attending some gaming conventions in the past few years, and I’ve been refining the set of things I carry around with me during the day. There are still a few tweaks I’d probably make for next time, but while it’s fresh in my mind I thought I’d share some of the essentials I had at Gen Con this year. Continue reading
