DIY Electric Fireplace Makeover

This project started as an idea in my mind, how could I transform the free electric fireplace that came with the Florida house we bought. You can see the original fireplace in those real estate listing pictures from earlier this year. All summer long I didn’t bother with the idea of a fireplace in Florida with 90+ degree days. I had stored the electric fireplace in another room thinking I would sell it.

How to Keep Your Car’s Paintjob Safe This Summer

Turn This One Up NOW: “Leroy (2020)” by Wheatus

I remember seeing Wheatus in the summer of 2000 opening up for SR-71 (ya’ll remember them?) at Mississippi Nights in St.Louis, MO. The movie “Loser” was in theaters and the song “Teenage Dirtbag” had been a staple on MTV2 and Much Music all summer long. I remember at that show they had a ton of the crowd come on stage and sing “Teenage Dirtbag” with them, but I was too nervous to jump up there (a stage fright I would obviously get over in a few short years, ha). Fast forward to 2006 and my old band, One Lone Car, did some shows opening for Wheatus and I remember thinking how great they sounded and I wish more people loved this band. I have to say it’s been extremely exciting to see all the years of hard work paying off for Wheatus these past couple of years. Packed shows, people posting videos of themselves during their “dirtbag years”, and tons of artists covering their songs and showing what a true influence this band has had on a lot of us. I touched on this with lead singer Brendan Brown when he called into my radio show back in 2020, and to see them doing even better now is really rad to see. They’ve been re-releasing their older stuff newly recorded as of late and it’s wild how it sounds exactly the same as the OG recordings (something almost all bands fail to do when they attempt to do it). I remember “Leroy” was always a standout track back in the day and this newly recorded version sounds just as good if not better than the OG version. I’m not a betting man, but if I was, I’d say 2023 is the year of Wheatus. Now go do yourself a favor and turn this one up NOW.

Get Keen shoes for under $5!

If you’ve been around for half a second, you’ve probably heard me share my love for Keen shoes for my kids. We love the hiking boots – they’re waterproof (a must for kid boots, as far as I’m concerned), comfortable, supportive, and have great grip for loose rock. Plus, we use the low boots as everyday sneakers. Again, I love that they’re waterproof for inevitable puddle play during and after school.

The Land of Pleasant Living

It has been said that amongst these tidewaters we call home exists some of the most pleasant living. This phrase actually comes from a National Bohemian Beer slogan. The “Land of Pleasant Living” slogan reached its peak in the1960s when National Bohemian bought a Chesapeake Bay skipjack and named it the Chesterpeake after a pelican who appeared in their ads. Even though National Bohemian beer is no longer brewed in Maryland, and hasn’t been for decades, the saying “The Land of Pleasant Living,” stuck around, as I have said it many times over the years.
