From the Desk of John Rourke – July 14th, 2017


I’ve been approached by vendors wanting me to push their products. Sure. I don’t have a problem with that IF their products are any good AND they send me their products to test. Sound fair? I think so. They want to get YOU to buy their products and they want ME to help with that – just “because”. Crazy.

It’s been brought up that I never have a bad review. I guess for the most part that is true – for the most part. I have tested products that suck – and I don’t report it. I guess I should and pass that information on. I’ll change that. The main reason I haven’t more in the past is I hate putting my time and effort into something that disappointed me to start with. As stated – I’ll change that.

Good deal on Cyalume lightsticks. 10 for only $9.96. Free shipping for Prime members or on orders over $25. I am a huge hit when neighbors get together and I give these to the kids.
