Sometimes, you need caffeine if you’re going to get any work done. And, sometimes, you need coffee just to get a few words out. Whatever the reason, you might need to meet a co-worker, boss or potential client at the same time. Here are some of Detroit’s most productive coffee hot spots. Astro Coffee: If […]
I made a major change this summer. It’s one that is making my life so much less stressful. Yes, I made the change to 20-volt cordless impact drivers by DeWalt. I fought hard against it, thinking my 18-volt Ryobi drill was just fine. But heck, what a difference. Today’s impact drivers are amazing. (I know, […]
Feed your mind – with any subject you choose.
Bike enthusiasts can be among some of the most demanding and focused of athletes, which in the case of the Hammerhead, may be exactly what’s needed, especially when the route being traveled may not be a familiar one.

Remember the facsimile machine you once “had to have” in order to run your small business? It was, the argument went, the defacto means of communicating with clients and just about anyone who was serious about commerce. There’s a pretty good chance that today’s typical startup has ditched the fax. Two key points to take […]

All of a sudden you are out of time and need to maximize every move you make. You are also famished because you […]
We’ve all been there. You are trying to measure the distance from the floor to the ceiling and the tape measure keeps flopping over. Or you are cutting a 2X4 inch stud for a wall you are building and you can’t quite get an accurate measure and have to keep making kerf-wide cuts to make […]
The fall holiday season has some of the busiest vehicle travel days of the year. And with gas prices – averaging $2.19 a gallon nationally on Nov. 13 – the lowest in nearly a decade, the choice to hit the road to visit family and friends looks even better. The U.S. Department of Transportation tells […]
On the links and you need a beverage, burger or a new set of cold weather gloves from the clubhouse? Well, a new app called Golfler has you covered.
The decision is made. From now on it will be almond milk creamer in my coffee. It has the least calories, compared with popular brands of coconut creamer and soy creamer. Almond creamer has half the calories of coconut and a quarter of the calories of soy. Considering all the coffee-driven workers and workplaces out […]

Gotta Have It – Stand up for sit-stand desks.
Ah, the convenience of modern technology. Just check your wallet – contactless credit cards, smartcards, keyless entry cards, RFID chips embedded in cards and passports. Great stuff for transferring information, but unfortunately hackers, skimmers and other tech-savvy criminals want to glean your numbers and codes from the cards while they’re still in your pocket or […]
With the weather getting a little nippy, gloves are a key accessory for outdoor wear.
