It’s true! There’s an easy and cool way to shoot rubber bands that I learned sometime long long ago from an amazing person (who this person is, exactly, I don’t remember, but I know the person to show me such a nifty skill must be amazing).

And now, at last, I am sharing the secret with you. It’s a good summer activity. And rubber bands aren’t too expensive, either, so that’s yet one more thing going for this quick trick. Oh, yeah. I know how to have a good time.


Every family has holiday traditions, and here’s one my kids and I share. It’s definitely a classic, sure to enrich your lives for many years to come. It may even be passed down from generation to generation.

If you enjoy snack cakes but you don’t enjoy gnawing away at the plastic wrapper in order to enjoy the icing, this video is for you. The god of TastyKakes (aka Kathy R, teacher extraordinaire) showed me how I could prevent the icing from sticking to the wrapper, and I believe it’s my responsibility to share the divine wisdom I have received. Go forth and eat well.

If you hesitate before initiating a toast because you don’t know what to say or you’re worried you’ll end up slamming your drink into another person’s beer and having unfortunate spillage issues, well, here is the advice you’ve been waiting for.

Lisa P. makes people smile on an everyday basis in all kinds of ways, but here she took initiative to offer one of the fail-proof means that others can easily adopt. If you want to be in a cranky mood, I do not recommend viewing this one. But if you want to turn that frown upside-down, this one’s for you.

All of my vlog videos are on YouTube so that I can post them here for free, and it turns out that a lot of YouTube viewers are crazy about blowing bubbles. It may even be a sick fetish in the case of one or two viewers, but I’m going to pretend that’s not the case–it’s just a bit too weird-icky to think about. Anyhow, after receiving several requests for more bubble-blowing videos and becoming slightly addicted to bubble gum since my first bubble-blowing how-to clip, I bring to you a small bubble-blowing trick. So get out your Hubba-Bubba and have some double-bubble blowing fun!

I’ve done it, you’ve done it, we’ve all done it–gone for the high five only to end up swinging through air, barely making hand contact, or accidentally slapping someone and ending up getting charged with simple assault. But with these simple instructions, our inept and jailbird days will be over. Well, they’ll be over when it comes to high-fiving, anyhow–the rest of it we’ll have to figure out on our own.
