New Review Item's

So I am going to start doing reviews on gardening products here in the near future. I am doing this because it is one of my hobbies and I always like to put up reviews for things that I am interested in. So to start I am going to write a little about why I am going to be reviewing things in this category as well as Knives, Electronics, etc. I have searched online for different review sites looking for ones that cover the categories that I do and I have yet to find one. So here it goes. I am adding gardening equipment as one of the items I will be reviewing. Since I am an avid gardener myself I enjoy spending time out with my plants giving them the little added CO2 that my breathing around them can give them. Now living in the NW I can tell you that it is hard to grow outside year round due to the temperature and rain fall. I will be going over products for both growing inside or outside. Everything from nutrients to lighting, Soil VS Hydro VS Aero, Best lights to use, Most cost effective, and some of the best local places to find some of these items. Now I know what most of you are thinking "There is other sites out there that do the same thing. So why should I check out your site?" Simple those other site's go more off of the companies labeling and what the company claims it will do. Now mind you  I will reference the companies info for things that I have found to be true with the products. But I am not using these products for growing fruits and vegetables. I have started to grow my own plant's and I thought to myself. I've read books about how to grow and what product's they recommend but when it came right down to it I didn't know who to believe. So here I want to be able to shed some light on the world of plants and the products that I have found to be the most cost effective the best producing and even some of the best nutrient mixes to use for your home grow. If there are any products in this category or any of my other categories that you would like to see a review from me on please comment on my page or write me a message on my facebook page.

Ozeri Brezza II

So I was working with some other blogs and I decided I would enter one of the giveaways. I ended up winning an "Ozeri Brezza II" fan and I have to say this fan is incredible. For it only being a 10" fan it pushes out a lot of air. I have had plenty of fans in my life especially since I am originally from California. So I am no new comer to fans but this one takes the cake. It not only has three different settings for fan speed but it also rotates 180 degrees side to side and about 90 degrees front to back. There are plenty of reasons I could give you for why you should buy this fan but I think the best way is to try one out yourself. Though since I have one I will go over some of the finer points of the fan the quality and pricing. So first you have the adjustable speeds as well as the rotation but I haven't mentioned yet the fact that this fan can be mounted. That's right mounted on the wall, ceiling, or your desk so you won't knock it off. The other benefit is the sound. Even on it's highest setting it is very quiet. So much so that it doesn't even disturb my 1 year old baby girl when she is sleeping. Over all I am very happy with this products quality and value. I hope that in the future I will be able to work with Ozeri and write more reviews on their products. If you would like more information about Ozeri and their products check them out at or you can buy their products on This fan retails for $79.99 or you can get them on Amazon.

Genelec Powered Monitors

I have been a huge fan of Music and Home theater systems for most of my life. I used to install custom home theaters that cost in the range of $20,000-$200,000 so speaker quality is one thing I don't take lightly.  My family is in the movie industry and sound editing end of things. So when I noticed the speakers they used in their editing gear I decided I should check them out and see what they were all about. Now what I found was that they weren't the best priced speakers out there but they by far are one of the best sets of speakers I have ever owned. These are no cheap Rat shack speakers and they sure are not on the inexpensive side. With an average price of around $600 per speaker they are on the more expensive side but once you hear the quality of these speakers I think you will be surprised. The biggest selling feature of these speakers for me is the small foot print they have with an incredibly large sound and clarity, I have not found in any other monitors in this price range or size. Now these are self powered meaning that as long as you have a set of RCA's and a surge protector you can hook these up to anything from iPods, Music, TV, or Game Systems. The best part of it is you don't need an amp or a lot of cabling just a small shelf power and a set of RCA's that's all nothing more nothing less. Now I know what your thinking. It can't be that easy. Well it is! This is one of the best portable stereo set ups you could possibly buy. But they don't stop there. They have a full line of products that are world renowned for clarity, quality, and durability. Interested in finding out more check them out at

Skullcandy Ear Buds

So I have had a lot of different headphones over the years but I do have to say that the best bang for your buck has got to be the "Skullcandy" ear buds. I've spent as much as 200$ on top of the line Shure noise canceling headphones and they were amazing as well. When I picked up a pair of the Skullcandy ear buds put them in my ear's I was amazed not just by the sound quality but also of the comfort ability. Now the Skullcandy ear buds are not considered a noise canceling headphone but I can say they cancel about as much sound as the Shure headphones I spent almost ten times the money on. The Skullcandy headphones at 20$ is an amazing deal.

They are extremely durable, and even though I don't recommend trying it my fiance's pair has gone through the washer and dryer more then once and they still work as well as they did the day we bought them. I use my pair almost every day. My fiance is harder on her headphones then anyone I know and she loves hers. She has had two pairs now and the only reason we had to buy the second pair was because her dog decided they were a tasty treat. I would highly recommend these headphones to anyone and everyone. You can check them out at This is not a paid review. I did not get paid or given any compensation for writing this review. Everything written in this post is my own opinion and is not bias or swayed in any way. Don't believe me. I dare you to go out, buy a pair and compare them to any other headphones you have now that are in the same price range or even to headphones that cost more. I'm sure you will be just as impressed as I was.

Masters Of Defense MOD Knives "Razorback"

Blackhawk MOD Masters Of Defense "Razorback Knife"

I purchased this Knife about 5 years ago and it has stood up to anything and everything I have thrown at it including actually using it as a throwing knife. Now just like any knife it is not impervious to damage but this knife is definitely one of the most sturdy knives I has ever owned. I used it for over a year straight as my workhorse knife doing everything from prying to opening cans even cutting meat. The edge holds up to it all. Over the time I was using it I only had to sharpen it 3-4 times and though I don't recommend it I can attest that the tip stood up to being dropped straight on to concrete and even though it rounded the tip slightly it also took a decent chip out of the concrete. Most knives if I were to drop them tip first on to concrete the tip would just break right off. I am also a stickler for details and Masters Of Defense is one company I can say is just as big a stickler for details. They are one of the first companies to actually get the blood groves symmetrical and the grind lines and bevel marks on the sides are almost perfectly aligned. You can not find a better fixed blade knife for $75. Now here are the specs from the manufacturer's site, along with their website so you can check out the other great products they offer.


Designed by expert knife tactician Massad Ayoob, the Razorback-Trocar is a tactical medical knife that was designed in cooperation with the International School of Tactical Medicine. Its zero-ground blade with scalpel-sharp tip and depth-index grooves allow for precise control during tactical medical procedures.

DAP Downpayment Assistance Program

So I have been trying to take a coarse here in Washington State for "DAP" and Tolin Peterson was the first guy I contacted he was nice at first. But being the father of a one year old baby girl things come up so I was unfortunately delayed from going to the class. When I tried to contact Tolin Peterson he ignored my phone calls. Thinking he might be busy I waited a few hours and tried again. Again he ignored my call so I figured I would give him a call the next day. Still no reply. When I woke up this morning I had a rather nasty E-mail saying that I am the rude one for calling him or even trying to get in touch with him on Labor Day. Even though there are still classes offered on Labor Day. Now I can understand if things got a little busy but to tell a perspective client that they are rude for trying to set up a time to take a class. I tried for over 5 hours and 2 days to get in touch with him and he not once called back, sent an E-mail, or a text message but me as the customer I'm the rude one. For anyone out there looking to take a Coarse for "DAP" I highly recommend staying away from Tolin Peterson and his entire group. They obviously care very little about the customers.
