Slippies Heatable Slippers – toasty toes

Slipppies Heatable Slippers. We were brought up to believe that the only things you placed inside a microwave oven had to enter your mouth shortly after the ping went off. So for these footwear gizgags to appear on the ping-done market has shocked us to the core. Nevertheless, we like blue. $29.95.  Made from super-snuggly-soft polar fleece, Slippies are filled with wheat grains, top and bottom (so don’t expect to be running a marathon in them) and they’re fragranced with…

Plasma TV Gel Cleaner – sparkly screens big smiles

Plasma TV Gel Cleaner. Sensible folk know better than to wash their flat panel television with soap and water. Or even use nasty corrosive alcohol based cleaners on their expensive set. Nope, clever people use spit and an oily rag. What? Oh OK, they use some fancy scientific type gel with a micro-fibre cloth which costs $29.50. There, now can we have our TV back mister?  Our Plasma/LCD Television Care Kit maintains image quality by keeping pixels crystal clear in the safest, most…

Vinegar – the ultra versatile liquid

  Who would have thought that vinegar was so incredibly versatile?  Tiredness or illness produces lactic acid that accumulates in your body to slow normal metabolism. Drinking vinegar over time may stop the production of lactic acid and relieve pain and tiredness. Vinegar may stop hiccups after a meal. Vinegar may soften callus on the foot for easy removal.

Complete Foot Massager – mmm….total tootsie bliss

The Complete Foot Massager apparently does more than yer average such device because it ‘kneads both sides of the foot’ while avoiding sensitive ankles. Well thank goodness for that. We wouldn’t want any untoward ankle grabbing in our household, I can tell you. Also comes with a wireless remote control, which makes us feel all tingly inside. Oh yes. $299.95.  Unlike other massagers that only vibrate the soles of ones feet and provide no applied pressure elsewhere, this foot massager uses two pairs of…

TripStalker – grab the best travel bargains automatically

TripStalker. Download the free program, register and you can then set up continuous running searches for flights, hotels and car hire. You can also specify your target price, and delivery mechanism, including email, SMS or desktop pop-up. I’m generally a little wary of these ‘agent’ applications since in my experience they rarely do as well as a simple, blunt human powered search, but hey, I’m willing to be convinced otherwise. Worth a look (although it’s a shame they’ve gone the .NET route).  TripStalker is an automated software application that takes your…
