How to make PowerWheels Tires last Longer

How to make PowerWheels Tires last Longer

Jul 19, 2015 by Paul White

PowerWheels have been around for over 30 years.  So you would think that during that time someone would have figured out a way to make the tires last longer.  Unfortunately due to the way PowerWheels drive trains are engineered the wheels designed to be the weak link in the whole system, meaning they will wear down rather than your motors or gear boxes.  This can cause a delimina for parents who figure out the cost for replacement wheels runs about $20 per tire.  Obviously the markup on these is huge, as these things are stamped out of some injection molded machine in china.  After replacing the original tires with some upgraded ones, and noticing that after only 3 months of use, they were already starting to show their age, I was determined to find a solution.  So if you want to make your power wheels tires last longer try this.

The Cheapest place to buy Fireworks in Houston

The Cheapest place to buy Fireworks in Houston

Jun 27, 2015 by Paul White

In Texas we have a small seasonal window to buy fireworks.  June 24th - July 4th, and a few days around new years.  Fireworks is a fun activity to do with your entire family.  I personally have great memories as a kid doing block parties for the 4th of July.  Being that most families will spend hundreds of dollars on fireworks, finding the Fireworks Store with the lowest prices is important.  Some stands will double their prices, and then use huge discount promos to make your feel like your are saving money.  But if you want non of the BS, and just want Walmart style pricing ( everyday low prices ), then there is only 1 vendor in Houston to shop at.

Google Mobile Penalty Fixes

Apr 21, 2015 by Paul White

Today Google Rollled out their Mobile Penalty to any website that did not meet their new guidelines.  These guidelines meant your website must resize and mold itself to fit the screen on mobile devices, without having to use the pinch to zoom as a way to navigate around.  Many of us webmasters thought we were ahead of the curve and had our websites ready weeks before this penalty went into effect.  We anticipated April 21st as the day when our websites would jump to the top of google simply because every other website did not update to be mobile friendly.  So Today when all my sites didn't rock the top spot on google I had to do a little more digging into the cause.

Mar 20, 2015 by Paul White

Updates on your hardware with new software is usually a good thing,  Except when those updates break things.  This turned out to be the case for people with the Linksys e4200 router who were updating to the latest 1.0.06 Firmware.  It was impossible setup USB devices as FTP or Media storage due to a new (Feature) where sessions would be passed in the Querystring as part of a security update that Linksys added.

My Healthcare.gov Obama Care Experience

My Healthcare.gov Obama Care Experience

Dec 26, 2014 by Paul White

On Christmas after opening presents, we quickly got all our christmas decorations put away, and started to focus on the new year.  This included shopping for Health Insurance.  Our current Provider Cigna had already informed us that our rates would be jumping for 2015.  Even though I tend to be conservative on most issues, I also don't fall into that high tax bracket that puts me on Par with other OLD gumpy republicans.  I am a  younger guy (35) so I am not affraid of using self checkout at Grociery stores and I am very comfortable with online shopping.  For these reasons I decided to give the Healthcare.gov website a try.  For those of you who buy your insurance directly from the market place, I highly suggest you give the site a try.
