Photography // How to Use and Buy Polarizing Filters Photographers debate the use of filters. Most agree that if you choose to get one, you should buy a quality filter. Here’s a simple guide on choosing the filter to get the affect you want.
Humor // Jeremy Lin Pretends to Be Wax Statue, Pranks Fans at Madame Tussauds SF I love it when celebrities and athletes have some fun with their fans. Plus Madame Tussauds is pretty legit. If you haven’t been you should check it out. If nothing else you can get some funny portraits with your heroes!
Food // Pork Chops With Apples and Garlic Smashed Potatoes Here’s another husband-approved meal, and this one comes from the Food Network. You saute apples and onions together which sounds very weird but don’t worry. The apples add a nice sweet flavor without tasting at all like onions. Next time, I’ll try to jazz up the mashed potatoes a little. They were kinda just bleh. Any tips for jazzy (healthy) mashed potatoes?
Stuff // I have already professed my love for Saddleback Leather products. I’ve got some good news. They are having a rare sale on some older items as they introduce several new products. From the website:We’ve never had a sale before. Ever. And I don’t foresee another happening. You can scoop up some fine leather goods at 35% off. They are also offering free shipping on orders over $200. It’s a bit unclear but it sounds like several of the sale items are being discontinued so grab them while you can. Now I just have to convince my husband that the dogs need the new collars. (Note: I am in no way sponsored or compensated by Saddleback Leather. I just enjoy their products.)
What’s good in your ‘hood this week?
