What Do You Do with a Huge Black-staining Polypore?

Black-staining Polypore
So, we have this huge mushroom growing in our backyard. Besides sauteing it with butter, what do you do with it? I'm not interested in cooking and eating it. I just want to get rid of it, and prefer it didn't grow back. Supposedly, it is edible. Do you call a local chef and see if they want? If you could sell it, how much do you charge? Appreciate any thoughts.

Luxury for Less: How to Save on Limos

Road Trip New York City
Road Trip New York City
Limos are about as far from frugal living as you can get, but every once in a while, a special event arises. Whether it be a wedding, your kid’s prom, an anniversary, your significant other’s birthday, or a big concert, splurging on a limo can still be done somewhat affordably if you do some research first:

Take All Factors Into Consideration

It’s tempting to book the cheapest limo service available, but what you see listed on a website or emailed to you as a quote may not be the final amount you pay. Before booking, be sure to find out the minimum number of hours required (usually 3-4 or more), which additional service charges (such as mileage or gasoline) might be applied, whether or not food and refreshments are provided, what kind of vehicle you will have, whether or not gratuity is included, and more. Some companies may quote the hourly rate but rarely is that the final price you’ll pay.

Mpow Bluetooth Foldable Headphones Headset Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Mpow Bluetooth Foldable Headphones Headset Review
It feels like my wife and I are constantly looking for better headsets. Her on her treadmill, she looks for something she can work out with. For me, it is typically something I can either wear at work or while writing or working around the house. We've tried many options, either that we purchased or got to review for the blog. The Mpow Bluetooth Foldable Headphones Headset is the latest one we're trying.

The basics of the headset are a lightweight, Bluetooth headphone that sits on the ear, instead of within it. The whole thing weighs in at a whopping .25 lbs, or about 4 ounces. It runs under Bluetooth 4.0, has a battery that lasts upwards of 15 hours, and a range of up to 30 feet.

100 Days to Squeeze Stoli Lemonade #StoliLemonade

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of STOLI® Vodka for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

 photo Stoli_600360_2_zps9bbbc27f.jpg
Stoli Vodka is traveling around the country with their Stoli-branded lemonade trucks and bringing their lemonade cocktail to the masses. They're also doing Stoli Lemon-ade bar night events, hitting 12 cities across the country. Including the Boston area, the bar nights can also be found in Chicago, Dallas, Denver, New York, and New Jersey.

The trucks, deemed ‘limo-nades’, are traveling across the country to squeeze the most out of the summer season and encourage sampling of Stoli Lemonade cocktails. They'll serve refreshing flavored Lemonade ice pops and dare consumers to take part in fun summer challenges to win Stoli prizes. If you're not in one of the cities being visited by trucks, watch for the 300 national Stoli Lemonade bar night events.

Tonguespank Spice Company Review

Tonguespank Spice Company

As part of the Swim, Sun, and Fun Giveaway last month, we gave away a box of spices from Tonguespank Spice Company. I hadn't received my review item yet before the giveaway ran its course, so there was no review for the product with the giveaway. Apparently, they were brewing a new batch so didn't have any to provide. It happened such that just as the giveaway was ending, I received a sample of their product. So, now you get the review as I've had time to try it.
As the company name implies, they're a spice company. Instead of just single flavored spices/herbs, they'll combine a couple, like hot peppers and bourbon, wasabi and sake, or garlic and grappa to name a few. Yes, they all seem to have a kick in them. It is the garlic and grappa that I tried first.
