As we move into the new year with teens, I wonder: Are we done with holiday photo cards?

This December, I sent a holiday card that did not feature a family photo. It was the only way out of the stalemate I’d reached with my 14-year-old daughter, who has final approval of any photo I send that includes her. “None,” she replied. I had 100 stamps sitting on my desk and a self-imposed deadline of getting the cards in the mail before Christmas. And that is how I landed on a card featuring a painting of a deer sitting in the woods. “We have teenagers, and couldn’t agree on a photo,” I wrote below the holiday greeting. Now, with some space between the holidays and my thoughts about my daughters and their teenage years, I wonder if I’ll be sending a card at all next year. Eight years ago, when the price of stamps reached 45 cents, my mother predicted the end of holiday cards. But many of us, especially parents of young children, were encouraged by the ability to design the cards online and stuck it out, contributing to what amounts to 1.6 billion units a season. I have now been sending cards for 18 years. The hassle, and the pleasure, have been consistent parts of my adulthood. But as I took the holiday cards we received this year down from the kitchen door where I tape the...

Windows 10 File Explorer Not Responding: Here Are 10 Ways to Fix It

File Explorer is the tool that you use to browse the files saved on the hard drive on Windows 10 OS. Imagine a situation where you need to use a particular file urgently, and the File Explorer stops responding or doesn’t launch. Note that after the release of Windows 10, Microsoft has renamed Windows Explorer to File Explorer. However, if you open the Task Manager, you will see a process named ‘Windows Explorer’ instead of File Explorer running even with a folder open in the background. I am not sure why Microsoft made the change in the first place, but it’s their OS, so they know it best. Rebooting your computer can solve quite a few Windows OS related issues. This is why at GT, we keep recommending it to our users. This is usually where your troubleshooting should start. Click on the Windows icon and select the Restart option under the Power button. After the computer reboots, check if File Explorer is working. Windows releases a lot of patches and updates for addressing the common bugs and vulnerabilities. These updates fix a lot of issues. Sometimes, installing them on your computer can also resolve past issues. Under the Windows Update tab, you will see any pending up...

Use Your Cordless Power Tool Batteries To Power Your Ebike : What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

This article has been a long time coming, but first a little history. My wife and I have 2 houses, hers is 1.2 miles from the road up a 900 ft hill and has an off-grid solar system. She is also Chemically Sensitive so we don’t really have anything that runs with gasoline except our cars. Even the generator that we use in the dead of winter is converted for use with propane so we don’t have to deal with the hassle of gasoline. The lawn has a mind of its own (it’s not really a lawn, more like 600 acres of goldenrod) and we decided for our wedding reception we wanted to actually have a lawn for our guests. On her own volition without consulting the battery expert she went out and bought a 40v Electric cordless lawnmower (it was probably only 36v and they were just liars). 40v on a lawnmower was a joke your boss tells you that isn’t really that funny but you still have to laugh, so after a few attempts to knock down the overgrown weeds we just took it back. The next purchase was a much more expensive $500 EGO 56v cordless lawnmower which turned out to be all kinds of awesome. We quickly fell in love. The mower was powerful enough to knock down most everything (including 3ft high gol...

SmartBar Australia – the leader in pedestrian-friendly vehicle frontal protection systems (VFPS) – have created their

SmartBar Australia – the leader in pedestrian-friendly vehicle frontal protection systems (VFPS) – have created their most technologically advanced designs yet – with two new bars for Toyota Prado and Hilux models being released this month. The new releases highlight the latest in safety design and technology, proving SmartBar’s ability to continually progress in the 4×4 aftermarket vehicle accessory category. Business is booming for the South-Australian based company with demand for its SmartBars surpassing all expectations and showing no signs of slowing down. Continuous light-commercial vehicle sales, particularly in government, mining and emergency service sectors have seen the business grow rapidly in the past few years. The success of the SmartBar is due to multiple factors including its construction from an advanced polymer material which allows it to absorb an impact by temporarily deforming and then return to its original shape. The light weight properties of the polymer and the hollow construction (consequent to the rotational moulding manufacturing process) minimises the weight added to the vehicle when fitted. This mitigates the effect the VFPS has on Gross Vehicle M...

This wallet has everything! It’s big enough to hold your passport, credit cards, some cash and

This wallet has everything! It’s big enough to hold your passport, credit cards, some cash and the foreign coins you’ll accumulate and add to a collection on your dresser. Plus, it protects your personal information with RFID blocking shield material under frequency 13.56 Mhz AND it comes in a ton of colors! My friends and family that swear by these. They help organize your suitcase and keep it from exploding all over your hotel room, and it gives you a designated bag for storing your dirty laundry. Genius! This is something I personally swear by. Being able to hang up your makeup and toiletries on a door handle or a closet bar makes a small bathroom countertop less crowded and nearly bearable. Plus, there’s less of a chance you’ll lose your favorite blush if it isn’t scattered to the winds in your hotel bathroom. I put these on my wedding registry for those times when I’m only bringing a carry-on. I can’t stress how nice it is to not have to check a bag at the airport and these TSA approved bags for your toiletries are a life-saver. The 50 lb luggage weight limit is honestly a blight on humanity, but we must play by the airport’s ...
