From the Desk of John Rourke – August 9th, 2017


Why is it when I need a tool THAT is the one time I cannot find it?

Been wondering for awhile…..“Did Adam and Eve have belly buttons?”

I haven’t been promoting recently because….well….just because. I haven’t ordered anything from them in a little while so not much to say. They are still a great source for certain items to save some money if willing to wait on the shipping. For those not aware primarily ships products directly from China. Don’t want to buy Chinese products? No problem. There are many products that cannot be purchased as American-made. So rather than buy a 10,000 mAh backup charger from Wal-Mart I order direct from GearBest and save.

I actually just ordered a 10,000 mAh mobile battery bank. I have several of these in packs, cars, etc. My kids love ’em.

I helped my youngest with a science fair project a few years ago and we tested several brands of batteries. I discovered that the Member’s Mark battery lasted longer than all the others. Most expensive doesn’t mean the best.

So many projects… little time.
