By |2021-06-19T13:59:49-05:00June 19th, 2021|Boating Activities|

Photo: Zay Nyi Nyi (Shutterstock) Summer hasn’t even officially started, but many parts of the country have already seen soaring temperatures and extreme heat. Hot weather is annoying—and potentially dangerous—for many reasons, and one of the irritating parts is what it does to your skin. Maybe you’ve been blessed with superior pores, but for most people, when it gets warm outside, their skin takes on a natural sheen, thanks to the production of what seems like way too much oil. But why does this happen, and can we do anything […]

By |2021-06-02T20:08:40-05:00June 2nd, 2021|Tech Tips|

The Pros And Cons Of Living In A Camper Full-Time Living in any RV requires a commitment to a more minimalistic lifestyle whether you’re in a 45-foot diesel pusher or a small truck camper or camper van. There are a couple of reasons a trailer or camper might not be the best choice for full-time living, but it’s worth noting that NO recreational vehicle is built and sold for the purpose of becoming a full-time residence. If you talk to the manufacturers and dealers, they all affirm that RVs are […]

By |2021-06-02T16:52:17-05:00June 2nd, 2021|Tech Tips|

Photo: stodolskaya2 (Shutterstock) Everyone loves a dog in a pool. Watching a pup paddle around, snout just above the surface, is a pastime so adored we’ve even named a swimming stroke in its honor. However, that doesn’t mean you should assume you can toss any dog into a pool without a life jacket, thinking natural instincts will take over—it turns out not all dogs swim easily, and there are a number of things you have to consider before lounging with your pooch by the pool, choreographing a summer photo op […]

How Much Interest You Actually Pay, Based on Your Credit Score

By |2021-05-27T13:52:05-05:00May 27th, 2021|Tech Tips|

Photo: Stokkete (Shutterstock) Your credit score is important to lenders, as it helps them assess you as a credit risk, but it’s important to you, too, because it ultimately determines the interest rates you pay on credit cards and loans. While I knew this in my early twenties, the significance didn’t really sink in until I thought of it in terms of pure cash —how much more or less was I spending on interest alone, based on my credit score? Here’s a look at how that might break down for […]

The Case for Peeling Garlic Before You Roast It

By |2021-05-27T10:51:56-05:00May 27th, 2021|Tech Tips|

Photo: Claire Lower I love the drama of serving a whole head of roasted garlic . It’s a little parcel of flavor that never fails to impress, but extracting the cloves can be a little messy (even with a pickle fork ), and (unless you use an air fryer ) roasting it to that soft and spreadable stage takes at least 50 minutes. Fortunately, you can cut that time in half by peeling the garlic before you roast it. You’ll get a slightly different flavor profile, but it will still […]
