Breville Juicer Review | Juice Fountain Plus
This is my Breville Juicer review. After watching the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead from Joe Cross, we immediately started adding fresh vegetable juice and fruit juice to our diet. We bought the Breville Juice Fountain Plus and I love it. In this video I explain some of the features of the Juice Fountain and I show you how to make a quick vegetable juice just like they do in the movie. Don't waste your money on the Jack LaLaine juicer, buy a Breville. I blog about it here: http://bloggerlens.com/breville-juice-fountain-plus-best-juicer-to-buy/

Crosman Optimus Air Rifle ~ Steve's Reviews
I'm reviewing the Crosman Optimus air rifle. I have to say I think this pellet gun is a great air rifle for critter control. I found this pellet gun to be very accurate right out of the box.

iPhone Battery Tip ~ Don't Replace Your iPhone Just Yet
If you are having trouble with your iPhone battery not charging, don't give up yet until you try my tip. My iPhone had completely stopped charging and I thought it was over. I decided to clean the contacts just to see if the iPhone would take a charge and it was a miracle. Before you replace your iPhone battery try to fix it first. I was sure my iPhone was dead and I was looking at a replacement. Maybe, just maybe, the battery contacts are dirty and need cleaning. This is easy and if you have some alcohol in your house, it's a free iPhone repair.

Old Kitchen Gadgets That Still Work Great
I bought an old fashioned can opener recently at the thrift store because I hadn't seen one like it in years. I kind of have a secret kitchen gadget fascination and one of the thrift stores I visit always has a good selection of older kitchen stuff. This old can opener still gets the job done and if you ever lose power at your house it's good to have something like this laying around in a drawer. I will throw this in my bug out bag and I'll always be able to open a can of beans if I have to.

Netgear AC1750 Smart WiFi Router For Faster Internet
I purchased the Netgear AC1750 Smart WiFi Router in an attempt to increase my internet speed. Time Warner had recently upgraded our speeds and I was not able to take advantage of that with my current wifi router. I had a Time Warner Technician come to my house and he verified that I was receiving over 100 Mbps download speed. With my existing router, I was only getting around 20 Mbps. Once I installed the AC1750 you will see in the video that my internet speed is now blazing along at over 100 Mbps. I'm very happy with this Netgear Wifi Router and how it is performing. Here is an Amazon link for the AC1750 and you can read other reviews: http://amzn.to/1Okko7U

Determine Google Maps Distance By Drawing A Radius
I was looking for a way to determine a Google Maps distance by drawing a radius on the map. I couldn't find the feature on Google Maps but I did find a website from a developer that did exactly what I wanted. On his website, you can easily draw multiple distance radius's and it's very easy to do. Originally I wanted to see a 100 mile radius from me so I could look at different National Forests where I could go hiking. Now I can easily see the places I can travel from where I am within a specific mileage radius. The next time you need to determine and draw a radius on a map, I highly recommend this site. http://obeattie.github.io/gmaps-radius/?radiusInput=125&unitSelector=mi Jim Cyr's Avoiding Chores Youtube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/thecyr

Uninstall Dropbox On A Mac & Free Up Hard Drive Space
I found myself needing to free up hard drive space on my iMac. As I looked to see where all my storage was being used, I discovered that my Dropbox Desktop App was using 95GB. Since I have Dropbox online, I didn't need it to duplicate my same files on my hard drive. To remove Dropbox from a Mac, just follow the directions in the video. My iMac only has 256GB of HD space so removing 95GB was very helpful. A lot of people may not realize that when you use the Dropbox Desktop App you are using valuable hard drive space and it may not be necessary. I will show you how to close dropbox on your computer and then you can remove the Dropbox folder into trash.

Find GPS Coordinates Using iPhone & Google Maps
Today I will show you an easy way to find GPS Coordinates using only your iPhone and Google Maps mobile. You should also be able to use an Android phone to do the same. Normally, when you pull up the Google Maps App on your phone, there is no indication of the actual GPS Coordinates. I will teach you how to drop a pin on your map and then acquire the coordinates from the dropped pin on the map. This is also a good way to send your exact location to someone in case you do not know your address. There are other ways to do this of course with other apps but this is an easy way using free apps.

How I Built My Rock Garden ~ Backyard Landscaping
I finally finished my rock garden home project on our back patio. It all started as an idea that my Wifey sketched on a piece of paper. Of course I had to make it come to life. It had to be a zero maintenance rock garden, so we placed slabs of slate to put potted plants on that could be changed out. I used river rocks from a local landscape supplier.

How To Stop iPhone Apps Passively Tracking Your Location
You may not know it but the apps you have on your iPhone may be passively tracking you even though you don't have the app turned on. These apps can track your location and the things you do on your phone and use this information for advertising etc. There is a way to turn off these apps so they do not track you. I will show you where this information is located in the Background App Refresh section on your iPhone. Foursquare is an app that supposedly tracks your every movement even when the app is turned off. I took Foursquare off my phone years ago. I don't want everybody knowing where I am. Many of the apps on your iPhone are tracking you and you may not be aware of it. Other apps track users’ locations even when the app is not actively running to gather intelligence for better advertising and personalization. For iPhone users, the passive tracking relies on a feature called “Background App Refresh. I'm going to show you how to turn this feature on or off on your iPhone.

Make An Improvised Conceal Carry Holster With Clothes Hanger
Here is a cool little improvised concealed weapon holster you can make in a couple minutes using a clothes hanger. It actually works great and probably better than some holsters you purchase. There is almost no weight to it and there is no bulk. This holster is very low profile. This is the ultimate holster minimalism. It works great with my Ruger .380 LCP but this holster will work with virtually any hand gun.

Sony HDR AS100V DIY Steadicam & Viewfinder
I put together a few things and made myself a steadicam and viewfinder for my Sony HDR AS100VR Action Camera. I used an articulating arm and a pistol grip as my main components. I'm surprised how well it works. Sony provides a free App that controls the AS100V. With a set up like this, you can easily frame your shots instead of pointing and hoping. The name of the App is the Sony Play Memories App. Just do a search in the App Store. It's free. Here is a link to my complete Sony HDR AS100V playlist: http://goo.gl/8UcXZ1 #sonyhdras100v

David can be reached at 704- 791-7271. If you call them, make sure you tell them you saw my video. I highly recommend this asphalt company in the Charlotte area.

Cheap Outdoor Fire Pit Idea For $14
For $14 I was able to have a fire pit on my back patio. Yes I know it's not the most beautiful piece of outdoor equipment but it's cheap and very effective. Gives off great heat and my fuel costs me nothing. There are handles on the side of the galvanized bucket that don't get too hot and you can move it around easily even while a fire is going. Just use sticks laying around in your yard as fuel. When you are done, just take a pitcher of water and pour it in to douse the fire. There is not mess associated with this type of firepit. I can throw this bucket in my truck and have a fire pit anywhere I go, it's portable.
