Magic Mushroom Powder Seasoning – Add a little magic to your Cooking

Did you know we have five aspects to our basic sense of taste? The first four are fairly easy to recall: sweet, salty, sour and bitter. The fifth is known as umami. It’s characterized as savory or meaty. Umami also brings a thickness element, or mouth feel.

Magic Mushroom Powder seasoning brings the umami to your cooking. It contains dry shiitake mushrooms, along with other delicious spices.  We use it on baked or broiled chicken and pork. It also goes great with vegetables and potatoes. 

Dash your next batch of fries with some Magic Mushroom Powder. Stuck in a rut with baked chicken thighs? Change it up with a shake and bake of umami.

This little speaker just keeps on rockin!

The JBL Flip portable speaker is a pretty impressive device. I like to think of this one as mine. It resides on my desk at Parkwood Studios, but it gets “stolen” quite often by other members of the household. That’s okay. Really, that’s a testament to its quality.

I am an audiophile, who loves sounds. Especially music. I often listen to music while exercising, washing the cars or hanging out at the beach. For all these activities, I just Flip my portable JBL speaker into my backpack, gym bag or beach bag.

For its compact size (about 7″ long x 2.5″ diameter) it really pumps out some sound. Plus, it is incredibly durable. It’s been dropped, splashed and sprinkled with sand. Still it never misses a beat.

It pairs instantly with my phone when I want to fire up my Spotify playlist. Don’t quote me on this, but it feels like I get about 5-6 hours of continuous play out of it when starting from a fully charged state.

The JBL Flip product family offers several sizes and models. Check it out over at Amazon and grab the one that’s right for you.

amazing sound quality + affordable price: between pro earbuds from status audio

Obviously, I am a fan of Status Audio!

Nothing against Apple’s AirPods Pro, I just kept losing them. They don’t fit the opening of my ear very well. And at $249 a pop, the cost adds up quickly. I do a lot of audio work, so earbuds and headphones are important to me. I need good quality, but I don’t want to overpay.

After some research, I discovered the wonderful earbuds and headphones made by Status Audio. Around Black Friday, I picked up a set of their Between Pro earbuds. You can find them online for around $149. Instantly, I was blown away by the sound quality. So much so that I immediately invested in their Flagship Headphones, also very reasonably priced.

Why I love them: it’s really all about the sound quality. Have you ever been inside a car with a really great sound system? Maybe you fire up a song or an album that you love, and it’s like you are finally hearing ALL of it. Full fidelity. All the richness across the full spectrum of sound. That’s what I experienced when I listened to my playlist on the Between Pro earbuds from Status Audio.

Check out their store on Amazon. They’re running the special $149 price again, a nice discount off the $169 list price. Tell them Skip sent you. 

Healthy living: mitigate seasonal affective disorder with re-timer therapeutic glasses

Skip wearing Re-Timer Light Therapy Glasses

The Winter “Gloomies.” It’s not some new series on Netflix or Hulu. It’s the state of feeling generally crummy. Often shows up this time of year in North America where we have fewer hours of sunlight. Perhaps you’ve been feeling low energy, less focused, poor sleep, a bit heavier or just a bit more grumpy since winter began. You might be struggling with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). SAD is a type of depression caused by reduced exposure to sunlight brought on by seasonal changes or living in areas that get little sun during parts of the year. Help mitigate SAD with these great, therapeutic glasses to bring helpful, blue-green light into your eyes and your brain.

warm, comfy feet

Life just goes better with good socks.

About 4 years ago, I discovered Farm to Feet socks. They’re the best! They are made from locally-sourced (100% Merino) wool. They’re great for walking or hiking … or just wearing anytime you want your feet to feel warm, dry and supported.

There’s a discount price for you at the Farm to Feet store on Amazon.

I own a pair like the ones shown below. They’re the first socks I wear as soon as they come out of the laundry.
