Kindle Oasis Waterproof

Kindle Oasis The Waterproof Kindle Review & What should I do if my Kindle gets wet?

Kindle Oasis is designed to be waterproof. It meets the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standard 60529 rating of IPX8 and can withstand immersion in up to 2 meters of fresh water for up to 60 minutes. We tested the Kindle Oasis, we dropped it in a bath tub, hot tub, the pool, splashed it with water… and if you follow the directions given by Kindle below you should be fine.

What should I do if my Kindle gets wet?
If your Kindle is splashed with water, wipe it off with a soft cloth and keep on reading. If your Kindle is immersed in water, remove its cover, make sure no cables are plugged into the device, and do not attempt to charge your Kindle until it is completely dry. If your Kindle is immersed in salt water, chlorinated water, soapy water, or liquids other than fresh water, make sure you rinse that liquid out of the device with fresh water such as cold tap water. Then dry your Kindle.

What steps should I take to dry my Kindle?
To dry your Kindle, let the water drain out through the micro-USB port, gently tapping the side of the device as necessary. We recommend you also let your Kindle dry fully in a well-ventilated location, with it standing upright so that any excess water can continue to drain from the micro-USB port. Do not attempt to dry your Kindle with an external heat source, such as a microwave oven or hair dryer. Do not insert a foreign object, such as a cotton swab or paper towel, into the micro-USB port to dry it.

What can I do to reduce the likelihood of water damage?
We recommend not exposing your Kindle to pressurized water, high velocity water, extremely humid conditions (such as a steam room) or food, oil, lotion, or abrasive substances. If your Kindle is immersed in water, follow the care instructions on this page. For any questions, please contact customer service.

10/10 As much as we liked the Kindle the Kindle Oasis is so much better.

HERMOSA Casagave Ultra Premium Tequila

Hermosa Tequila Ultra Premium Tequila

Hermosa Tequila

I had the opportunity to try this new tequila that will be out later this month. Wow, I have tasted many tequila brands but this tequila was so smooth I ended up drinking most of the bottle. This is an ultra premium silver tequila that is very drinkable and hang-over free, no impurities and made from 100% Agave. They said they will be out with a reposado and añejo soon as both are in barrels right now.

What does Hermosa mean in english?
Hermosa means beautiful… and so much more something described as Hermosa is not only beautful but quite possibly the most amazing person/thing on this planet and for reasons you can not describe in any language!

iPhone 6S Review

iPhone 6S What changed? Everything

“3D Touch” a display that uses pressure sensitive technology that makes this phone do new things in a new style. While I was taking a look at both the 6S and the 6S Plus I noticed they are the same size as 6 so my case from my 6 will fit on my 6S.
Rose Gold, looks like it will be the one to buy, especially if you want everyone to know you have the 6S.

No more bendgate, the material used is a aerospace grade aluminum and it looks like a thicker glass. The inside looks like it is built with the same aerospace grade aluminum.

Shortcuts is another new idea on this phone, apple calls it peeking in, you access most resent actions a lot faster. Press and hold on an app and it will pull up a drop down menu with options, you can also customize the dropdown menus.

Camera has a new front and back camera for photos and videos. A better autofocus and a 12 megapixel camera which is a lot more than the last phone that only has an 8 megapixel camera. Do yourself a favor and get the most storage space possible these photos and videos take up a lot of space.

The 3D Touch, A9 processor, Third generation 64 bit chip, 4G LTE, iOS 9 and the new improved camera makes the upgrade well worth the wait, order online or visit your local Apple Store.

Oak & Steel Fine Wines And Spirits NYC

Oak & Steel Wine & Liquor Store Midtown, NY

Hours – Monday – Saturday, 9 am – 12 midnight, Sunday, 12 noon – 9 pm
Oak & Steel, a great liquor store, with a great selection, comparable prices and an amazing location. Oak & Steel is my go to liquor store when I need to pop in and out and get a great bottle of something unique. The staff makes the place, very knowledgeable in wine and spirits. Dena, I think her job is operations and marketing yet she really has customer service down. All the staff appear to love what they do and make great recommendations. Their prices are very comparable with other liquor stores near by, but the elevated level of service here is worth so much more. I do not live in NY but I visit often, Oak & Steel does give a discount to some hotels, mention what hotel you are staying at and you could get a 10% discount. Also they invited me to a tasting, from time to time they have in store tastings where you can try new or unique items. Oak & Steel, keep up the good work I look forward to my next visit to both New York and your fine establishment.

Oak & Steel Fine Wines and Spirits is located in Midtown West, 1776 Broadway New York, NY 10019 Phone 212-262-7702, @oakandsteelnyc and join their mailing list.

Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix Review

Margarita Monday is my favorite day of the week, as it becomes more popular week after week it was taking a bit longer to get a margarita. Problem solved with the best invention since margarita mix, Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix.
If you’re my age or green and care about the environment you used to pick up a keg and party all weekend, return the keg wash the glasses and rest up for next weekend. That tradition continues yet I have added Margarita Monday to my weekly celebrations and thanks to the Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix I have very little preparation. They created a premium margarita mix to be the perfect blend when mixed with premium tequila, not too sweet or too sour, a great melody of lemon and lime flavors with a citrus finish. They suggest you add 100% agave tequila (750ml-1.75ml) for what they call the Ultimate Margarita, I call it the Never Ending Margarita. DIY, I prepare a tray of glasses, a bowl of ice, a saucer with salt (for rimming) and a bowl of limes cut into wedges. It’s like a margarita buffet/build your own margarita, yet Hotmixology Party Box does all the work, no need to individually make margaritas and no watered down pitcher of margaritas.
Hotmixolgoy Party Box was made with two spouts one on top to pour your favorite spirit in (a 750ml works yet I use a 1.75ml for Margarita Mondays) then reseal, shake it for a minute, then use the spout on the side to pour a perfect cocktail. Party Box is 3 liters of premium mix there is room for 2 more liters so plenty of room to add your spirits, making just over 2 dozen cocktails. When you make a pitcher and add ice you tend to get a lot of ice melt, this invention makes the perfect cocktail that stays perfect for the duration of the party and if there is any left you can enjoy it days later. A great idea if you have a house full of guests is to make up a batch and put it in your refrigerator, Party Box will be there 24/7 making you the perfect host.
Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix has won awards in this very competitive segment. A gold medal from the Denver International Spirits Awards, a gold medal from Craft Competition and 92 Points from Hollywood Rated. Impressive yet I still think I’m the winner each time I buy the Party Box as I get 3 liters of premium margarita mix.
Here is how it works, it’s like a bartender in a box making margaritas for everyone at the party. The host of Hotmixology Dave Elger came up with this idea, working with his mixologists to create the perfect margarita mix, then he create a way to multiply it into the Hotmixology Party Box. The Hotmixology Party Box Margarita Mix is so easy, you can make margaritas in a few minutes before your guests arrive, no need to worry about making drinks individually, just enjoy the party. It’s also economical I spent less than $15 on the Party Box Mix, a little bit more for the tequila and I found 10 limes for a dollar, at that price I should do Margarita Muesday , Margarita Mednesday, Margarita Mhursday…

SEX WAX REVIEW

What wax do you use? “Sexwax of coarse”. I used Sexwax as a little kid (grom), now it’s “retro”, it works/does it’s job, and it’s the “go to” choice for pros/experienced surfers. Another plus, they started using an Eco box now packaging is now recyclable. Recyclable package is made of 100% recycled fibers with environmentally friendly, low V.O.C. inks. This new package is easy to open and can be reused to keep your partially used wax clean in its original package. I love that they put on the side “Please don’t litter”.

The Sexwax I am featuring is the;
GREEN LABEL
3X (XXX) Rated Soft (1X softest stickiest – 6X hardest least sticky)
REVISED RANGE
COOL TO MID WARM
58°F to 74°F
14°C to 23°C
Made in the U.S.A.

Non-Toxic – You can chew it! Not a food item, yet all ingredients are designated as food additives by the FDA.

It is a softer wax some of the benefits are, stickier and easier to apply, it will move or rub away in spots where you put a lot of pressure and use. I am happy with the stickiness and stability underfoot.

Sexwax Green Label is my go to wax, as they say it is, “The Best For Your Stick”.

SUP, Stand Up Paddle Board, What Should I Buy and Why?

Stand Up Paddleboarding is the fastest growing sport, and finally the competition between producers has leveled the inflated price to an affordable one. Stand Up Paddleboard or SUP for short, is a ton of fun and a great core workout. As consumers test the waters getting into the sport of SUP, I must give some helpful advice. Buy a quality board and a quality paddle from someone who not only makes boards, who also is on the water paddling, using the product he’s selling every day of the year. My dad always said “don’t give advice if you don’t do it, and when you make a purchase buy from someone who uses the product they are selling.”

Ever surf Zuma Beach? Vacationers or locals, when your in California head to Malibu and hook up with Tony “Radfish” Stearns. He is not only the maker of Radfish Stand Up Paddle Boards some of the best/lightest SUP boards made, he is one of the best SUP riders in the industry. If you want to see for yourself take a look at his YouTube channel #radfishmalibu and subscribe. You can take SUP lessons, purchase a SUP or upgrade your SUP to one of his carbon fiber/Kevlar custom shaped boards and carbon fiber paddles.

I’m the guy who always wanted a SUP yet it always seemed too expensive. I called Tony Radfish and started out with a few private lessons, it was everything I had imagined and more, awesome! Radfish is right on Zuma Beach in Malibu, one minute after you park your on a Radfish SUP in the water. Tony Radfish is a well known local he has been surfing the Malibu waves for over four decades he knows where to be on any given day. Known for his experience, professionalism, and winning many competitions in both surfing and SUP. This is a five star operation in every aspect, customer service, ocean safety and any other concerns you may have. If you want a wetsuit he has them available, if you ding your board he does repairs.

I purchased a Radfish SUP and I have used it everyday since. It is so much fun it doesn’t feel like a workout, yet I have lost 20 pounds. If you purchased a board and paddle like the one I purchased from Radfish in a store it would be three times as much. I recently upgraded my paddle to a Radfish Carbon Fiber Paddle, and I recommend everyone do the same. If your looking for a Stand Up Paddleboard take a look at Radfish, the best boards at wholesale prices. Tony Radfish makes them himself and sells wholesale directly to the public. Contact him for the best deal, mention that you heard about him from the Secret Blogger and your deal will be so much sweeter.
