Pennsylvania is the 9th Lenient State on DUI

Posted on August 10, 2017 in Announcements

Drunk driving takes a terrible toll on the United States – one measured not only in dollars, but also far more importantly, in lives lost. It was to blame for 29% of motor vehicle fatalities in 2015, according to the latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. It claims roughly 10,000 lives per year. And it costs Americans more than $44 billion annually.There is good news, though. Drunk-driving fatalities dropped by 57% from 1982 to 2014, according to the NHTSA, as states have cracked down on the practice. As a result, motor vehicle crashes are no longer among America’s top 10 causes of death.
But which states are taking the most aggressive stance toward “driving under the influence” (DUI) and “driving while intoxicated” (DWI)? To find out, WalletHub compared the drunk driving penalties in all 50 states and D.C. You can find a complete breakdown below.

Back To School with 3D light FX

Posted on August 10, 2017 in 2017 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews

We love 3D light FX, as a matter of fact, we have one in the major rooms of the house.

Jacob’s bedroom has the Thor Hammer, the master bedroom has the front of a car, and the living room has Boba Fett.  Every room is a little different, but nevertheless, we love 3D light FX lights.  I still need to get a light for the kitchen, and even one for the bathroom.  Then, I’ll work on the “Man Cave”, and my office.  But, the rooms you see, when you enter the house, are the rooms that have the lights.

The brightness  of the lights is perfect.  Jacob uses his as a night light.  We put Thor’s hammer in there, so that he wouldn’t have any fear.  They all make great night lights, and even a little light, to make something easier to see.  Jacob, age 6, loves his light.  His bedroom just got remodeled, so when it did, we added the light, and it’s so cool.

The Car 3D light FX is so amazing, and it’s in the Master Bedroom.  It is smaller than a real car, but still looks realistic.  The light is bright enough, that over the bed, I can read with it.

The Boba Fett light, which is in the living room, is really a conversation piece.  Our friends/family love it, when they see it.  We are always asked where we got the light, and we tell them, and guide them to the site.

I love 3D Light FX, and their products.  You really have to check them out.

w/Lids Giveaway

2 – Winners 

Holiday Contest and Sweeps is excited to bring you two great products that will change

the way you keep your drinks hot or cold. Viatek Consumer Products was kind enough

to provide me with one of their Arctica Stainless Steel Vacuum-Insulated 20oz.

Tumbler to do a review and giveaway, I am glad to say that two lucky winners will

get a chance to own their very own Arctica Tumbler.

I would first of all like to thank all the amazing blogs that have joined in this giveaway

to help promote it, from the dedicated co-host and non co-host, a big thank you

goes out to you all.

Arctica 20 oz Tumbler W/ Clear Lid

Your morning cup of Joe. Your afternoon iced tea. Hot or cold, don’t leave home without this insulated tumbler. It keeps cold beverages from losing their cool and ensures hot ones stay hot. No more struggling with a stuck screw-top lid when you want to refill it either. Just pop it off. Its brushed stainless design looks sleek and professional and, our favorite, you can leave cleanup to the dishwasher.

Arctica 30 oz Tumbler w/Clear Lid

The lid shown below can be purchased in several different colors such as red, orange,

pink, green, blue and smoked. These can be purchased separately on the Viatek Website

for a low price of $8.99 ea.

This Tumbler is simply amazing, I conducted a test by pouring a fresh hot cup of coffee

directly from the coffee pot and let it set for 7 hours. When I finally poured myself a cup

of coffee from the Arctica it was as still as hot the second that I had poured it. In this

test it defiantly gets 5 start rating.

Let’s Take A Look A Video On These Tumblers:

For the second part of my test I filled the Arctica with ice and water and left it out

in the hot car with temperatures that exceeded 100 degrees easily. After 7 hours

I again poured me a cup of water from it to find that it was very cold and full of ice

still. Once again,this tumbler gets another 5 star rating.

For those whom travel or just want a reliable tumbler to keep your drinks hot or

cold on the way to work or another place you wish, then this tumbler is a must

have for you.
