Let’s face it, the built in speakers on all of your devices suck.  You know it and I know it.  I have a brand new monitor for my desktop with built in speakers and the sound is ok for when I hear specific PC sounds, but I really don’t care about those sounds.  When I want to watch Netflix, I have to plug my computer into my HDTV with the HDMI cable because of how bad the monitor speakers are.  Chips iPhone speaker is ok for hearing the ringtone when someone calls him, but when he wants to watch a YouTube video, he has to hold the speaker up to his ear because he can’t hear it, and then he misses the video entirely which defeats the purpose of watching a YouTube video.

What you need is a Lenovo speaker.  It is (as you can see in the image above) a little red speaker and can be attached to any device that needs a speaker like a desktop, laptop, phone or mp3 player.  The speaker may be small, but the sound it produces is big and bold.  It has 4-watts of power for high-quality full sound, a USB that charges it and it has an energy saving function, and it has a speaker wire that spools for easy storage.  It is also a very a elegant yet substantial presentation.

I would love to have this because it is small enough that I can plug it in to any device that needs it like my Dell DJ, my CR-48 or my Desktop.  Darrin would love one for his iPhone.  I think this would make a great gift for anyone who has a birthday coming up (hint hint wink wink).  Click the link for more details.

My Dell DJ (Again)

YAY I got my Dell DJ back!  Darrin bought this for me for Christmas 2004 and I got it in January 2005.  During the summer of 2005, the battery started dying slowly.  The charge is supposed to last 8 or 12 hours, I forgot what it was, but suddenly it went down to like 6 hours, then 5, then 4 and so on until it wouldn’t keep its charge for more than 5 seconds.  I stopped using it when summer was over and I didn’t call Dell to have them replace the battery because I was too lazy and had given up on it.  It wasn’t until the warranty expired when I decided to call and they told me the battery was going to cost $70.  Well, I thought I had a 2 year warranty, but the warranty that I had didn’t cover the battery.  Yeah, thanks Dell for having your loopholes.  It sat in a drawer for many years.

I decide that I wanted to buy a new battery for it in 2009 and so I found a battery on eBay for like $15 (with shipping) and bought it, unfortunately it wasn’t the right battery even though they said it was.  It worked, it just didn’t fit inside of the DJ.  I did research on how to replace the battery and one website said to remove the wheel which is why it looks dented, because I was trying to pry that MFer off.  I couldn’t get it off so I found another website which told me how to do it and so I made a video and put it on YouTube.

That battery didn’t last very long and so the DJ has sat in a drawer for the last 2 years.  I decided that I wanted my DJ back so I bought another battery from eBay, only it was the right battery.  They have an instructional video on there, guess whose video it is?  Mine!  This battery is the correct one and it fits and is charged up and ready to play.  I’m so glad it fits, I hated that the battery was taped to the back LMAO.

I have wanted to buy Jane Badler’s new album called “Mistaken Identity” so I bought it from Amazon.  I recommend buying it because she is such an awesome singer.

The DJ still sounds really good.  It’s not an iPod, but this Dell DJ cost $200 back in the day when Darrin bought it for me.  He also bought me a remote control for $50 and a 2-year warranty for another $50 and I have felt bad all these years that I only got a good 6 months out of it.  So now that I have it back I can start listening to music again.  YAY!

Nopalea The Wellness Drink

I heard about this Nopalea (pronounced No-pah lay’uh) last year, but I haven’t tried it yet.  I would like to try it because of the claims on their website.  They say, do you suffer from inflammation and it’s related health problems?  Then they list a few things like muscle, joint and body inflammation which causes joint, muscle and body pain.  Respiratory inflammation which causes allergies and breathing difficulties (which I have).  Arterial inflammation which causes heart health problems.  Digestive tract inflammation which causes bloating, cramps and burning (I assume for women, obviously I don’t get cramps or bloating).  And widespread body cell inflammation which causes overall fatigue.  Well, I have a few of those things, especially the last one because I’m always tired even though I haven’t exerted any energy.

Do you or anyone you know suffer from any of those?  Nopalea contains rare and potent antioxidants that are scientifically proven to help the body reduce inflammation.  When you take Nopalea daily, it can help your body reduce inflammation, cleanse itself of daily toxins and promote optimal health.  I think that is worth buying.  It is not clinically proven to reduce any pain you might have, but it has proven nutrients to reduce inflammation which we all know is the leading cause of pain.  It also contains rare antioxidants (Betalains) that have been scientifically proven to reduce inflammation.

Nopalea has already sold 3 million bottles of its anti-inflammatory wellness drink, so why not give it a try and see if it works for you?  You can get a free bottle (only pay $9.95 for shipping) by calling 1-800-203-7063.  Do your body a favor, try this drink.

Dark Shadows (2012) with Johnny Depp

I have been waiting for Dark Shadows for a few months and I couldn’t wait to go see it.  I never had the chance to see the original Dark Shadows because I wasn’t born when it first began and I was only a baby when it ended, so I never got the full experience.

I actually didn’t even know about it until I saw an episode of King and Queens when it was brought up because there was a convention that Spence (Patton Oswalt) was going to go to but his girlfriend wouldn’t let him go only because Carrie (Leah Remini) told her to stand up for herself which turned her into a crazy control freak.

Darrin told me when we were leaving the theater that this movie had gotten a few bad reviews.  Well guess what, they can suck an egg because this was a good movie.  Anything with Johnny Depp is going to be awesome and I really don’t listen to those reviews anyway.

Netflix has the original series, I don’t know how many episodes they have, but it says they have all 4 seasons.  I looked it up on IMDB and it doesn’t say that it has more than 1 season, it just shows 1966 – 1971.  I tried to watch it on the internet but I could only find 12 episodes which were dated in 1966.  It was a 5 day a week show so there are going to be a ton of episodes to watch, 1225 episodes to be exact since that is how many episodes IMDB says there are, luckily they were only 30 minutes long.  Then go check it out on Hulu because there was a remake of only 12 episodes from the 90’s.  So that should be quite interesting to watch.

I saw an interview on TV where they said that Johnny Depp was in the original series as the little boy.  Well, he was born in 1963 and the show first began in 1966 so it was possible, but he would’ve only been 3 years old.  Well, I scrolled through the list of cast members and his name was nowhere to be seen.  I then went to his IMDB page and his career began in 1984 with a Nightmare on Elm Street.  I know this is not even worth mentioning since it’s not even true, but you know, it’s something they said on TV and well, there you have it.

At any rate, go see this movie because it was very good and it was fun to watch.  Since I never saw the original, I didn’t get any inside jokes if there were any from the original series.  If you never saw the original then you won’t get it either, but it doesn’t matter because the movie was funny enough on it’s own.

When you go, get your picture taken on one of the displays for Dark Shadows like I did…

Homemade Dog Food

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of homemadedogfood.com for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you know what is in your dog’s food?  Do your dogs even like their food?  Go look at the ingredients on the bag of dog food, you can only pronounce a few words.  What’s frustrating for me is that no matter what brand or flavor dog food, my dog won’t even eat it unless it is her last resort.

I have a friend who is a chef who told me many years ago that she has a recipe for dog food, but I didn’t have a dog so I didn’t really pay too much attention.  Now that I have a dog, it’s time to find out how to do it so I turn to this website Homemade dog food.  Not only do they have a recipe my dog will eat, but it only has a few ingredients. Ground beef, rice and eggs that you bake like meatloaf.  What more can you ask for?

Check out this Easy cooked dog food recipe.  They are very precise and to the point and even have pictures and a video in case you are unclear how to do it.  The chef also shows how much of the supplements to add when he feeds it to his dogs.  And look at the dogs eating this food, look at those tails wagging.  Those are some happy dogs.  I know my dog would much prefer to eat this dog food.

Take a minute and think about something.  When you see animals in the wild, you don’t see them eating hard round nuggets or bone shaped food, instead they eat raw meat from animals they have killed.  That’s what your dog wants, but of course they can’t go out and kill their dinners because there isn’t any game in your house for them to hunt.  This recipe gives them the meat they desire and the added supplements they require that they aren’t getting from the cooked hamburger meat.  I know that this is what my dog would love to eat so I am seriously thinking about making her food.

It says in the website to fast your dog for 24 hour to flush out the dog food, well my dog doesn’t eat her food, she eats people food which I know isn’t good for her, so she doesn’t have to flush anything, she can go right ahead and switch to this new diet.  This also makes it easier to add worm medicine to her food.  I hate having to go out and buy wet dog food just to add medicine to it, I can just add it to her regular meals now.

From now on I don’t have to share my dinner with her cause she will have her own.  She’s happy, I’m happy, we’re all happy and that is what it’s all about.
