Christmas China and Nativity Sets

With Thanksgiving and Black Friday behind us, we are officially into Christmas season. If, like Maria, you are a fan of Christmas China, then you might want to take a look at our Christmas China page for a rundown of all the special table settings available. We also have done a page on Nativity Sets - there are many beautiful sets on the market over a wide variety of price ranges.

For those of you with a barbecue or grilling aficionado in the family, check out our "Have a Merry Barbecue Christmas" page where you can find gift ideas that will fit any budget.

And finally, for a little Christmas fun, how about casting your vote on our "Santa vs The Angel" page where two of the all time great Christmas movies square off.

Yes indeed, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Sounding off about Blenders

It's Thanksgiving week and we thought this would be a good time to revisit the great blender debate: Blendtec vs Vitamix. You might want to check out our Blendtec review to see why we like the Blendtec, but we think the Vitamix is a great choice too. Check out this video (one in a series of 10) which compares the noise levels of the respective blenders. We found it interesting and we think you will, too.

Meanwhile, with Christmas fast approaching, check out our latest page on setting your table with Christmas China.

Grass Fed vs Grain Fed Beef

This week we take a look at the pros and cons of Grass Fed Beef versus Grain Fed Beef. They look different, they cook different and they taste different. So, check out the story on our new page Grass Fed Beef versus Grain Fed Beef . We aren't saying one is better than the other, but we do believe you should know the differences.

Meanwhile, is it true that grass fed cows are better dancers than grain fed cows? Check it out!

Fall - Time For New Things!

We love fall, it's such an invigorating time of year as the air turns crisp and the colors turn bright (yes, even here in California)! So to ring in the fall we have created two new pages to share with you.

Best Core Workout will tell you just why we think the Indo Board is an invaluable tool for almost anyone interested in strengthening their core. Also, if you haven't already, remember to check out our Indo Board review.

Time for Tailgating is our showcase for some cool stuff to take with you to the game or other outdoor outings this fall. And while you are at it, fall can still be a fun time to barbecue, so check out our Cool Stuff for Hot Barbecue page and our Big Green Egg Blog, too.

Finally, Misty and Stormy show you one of our favorite fall pastimes ....
