This is a bookmark post of sorts. I have a couple of new products that have been under evaluation that I plan to get into this blog as product reviews. The first two out of the chute will be a snake camera for plumbing, and an electrical wall outlet for charging USB powered devices.
Also, based on some emails from various PR representatives, I’ve been asked to read and review some new books from various authors on different topics - when they arrive, and I can carve out the time, I'll get the reviews posted soon thereafter.
In the meantime, I would like to call to your attention an updated report on Colony Collapse Disorder or CCD: “Honeybee die-offs linked to insecticide, study says”. If you are a regular reader, you have seen some of the past stories – going back to 2007 – which I wrote on this topic. Fascinated by our inability to narrow this down, especially considering how important bees are to our ecosystem and crop production, for me it’s the old, “If you can land a man on the Moon, then why can’t you…” discussion. Surely we should be able to figure this out and take some corrective action.
Lastly, I owe my friends at PeopleTowels an updated story. I have covered the company and their clever towel on a couple of occasions. Recently someone sent me a picture from their cell phone of a PeopleTowel purchase at a local store. It’s rewarding to have witnessed their growth and wider distribution since my first story in 2009.
