Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro 67650

I recently found the need to buy a juicer that would be easy to clean and an economic price. I did some research and most of the ones I found were $150 and up until I researched the Hamilton website and discovered the Hamilton 67650 juicer. For those who want a basic juicer at a reasonable price I recommend the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro 67650 ($75). This single-speed model is fast and if you want to juice all kinds of fruits and vegetables like apples, carrots, and pineapples then the juicer is the perfect addition for your kitchen. The wide, 3-inch feed chute on the Big Mouth juicer saves work by reducing the need for pre-chopping, and the peel of fruits and vegetables because the size of the mouth can fit an apple. It is easy to assemble and disassemble and has locking latches for safety. Cleanup is easy thanks to a large pulp container a handy cleaning brush and dishwasher-safe parts, but it’s a five minute clean up by hand.  
The Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro 67650 comes with a one-year limited warranty which gives plenty of time to test the juicers durability. I would recommend it if you are looking for a juicer to make some great drinks.

DEWALT DC720KA Heavy-Duty Cordless 18-Volt Compact Drill

Recently my father and I have been building some shelves and a workbench in his garage. This story is not about the shelves or the workbench but the tool we used to drill holes and screw everything together. Our drill is a DeWALT DC925KA Heavy-Duty XRP 18-Volt Ni-Cad 1/2-Inch Hammer drill.
                DeWALT is a well-known company that makes many different tools, but it especially well known for their drills. What I like the most about the drill is its power and durability.  This drill has been through a lot and is still working just as it always has. Just the other day it slipped from my hand and fell about 5 feet. To my surprise, the drill was fine and I continued drilling. When I buy things, I usually like to spend a few extra bucks to get something that is well made. This is definitely the case when it comes to work tools. You get what you paid for. If you buy cheap stuff it will breakdown on you.
                The DeWALT DC925KA Heavy-Duty XRP 18-Volt Ni-Cad 1/2-Inch Hammer drill is a great drill that is durable and packs a solid punch.

Microsoft Wirless Mobile Mouse 6000

This week I had to buy a new mouse. I ended up buying a mouse from Best Buy that was made by Microsoft. It uses the new Blue Track technology that is supposed to be the most accurate laser out. I disagree and have not been satisfied with it.
 I had an old normal laser mouse before made by HP, and it always worked without fail. Since purchasing the new Microsoft mouse, I have encountered a few problems where the arrow on the screen lags behind or stutters. In addition, I play a few video games, and it works horrible for them. It actually worked so bad I have resorted to using an old wired mouse.
  The Microsoft Wireless Mobile Mouse 6000 cost me about $40.00 dollars and I regret buying it. I will now need to go buy a new mouse. You may have some different experience, but I am extremely disappointed in the performance.

3•2•1® GS home entertainment system

When it comes to home entertainment there is nothing like a great sound system. Whether you are watching a movie, sports, or listening to music the sound system is the most important part. At home, we have a Bose sound system.
  The 3.2.1. GS home entertainment system offers great value at a great price. Some sound systems can retail more than $3,000.00 especially when your looking at Bose. The 3.2.1. GS system is just about $1,000.00 and has extremely great sound. It does with two speakers what some systems can only do with five.  Now here is the kicker, it is also a DVD player. It combines it all into one simple system.
  If you are looking for a great sound system/ DVD player consider the Bose 3.2.1 GS Home entertainment system. It costs a little more money than other systems but you will not regret it.

Trek 3900 Disc

Living in Florida I often enjoy riding bikes all around. I especially enjoy looking for fun trails or interesting places to ride. I used a bike made by the Trek Company. They make a wide variety of very high quality bikes. I have a three series, 3900 Disc mountain bike by Trek. It retails for about $550.00
  If your thinking about buying a bike to ride off road and trails you should look into mountain bikes. Many companies make great bikes, however mountain bikes tend to look a lot alike. When looking for a good bike it is very important to invest and get a good bike. The reason I say this is that if you buy a cheap bike it may break on you and you could be hurt very bad. I have actually had a cheap bike break almost in half on me.
  Trek is a very good company whose products you can trust. I have put this bike through a lot of very tough use. The Trek 3900 Disc Mountain Bike is great, and definitely, something I would suggest to anyone looking for a good mountain bike.

Hewlett Packard Office jet Pro 8500A

Recently I walked into an Office Depot and they were offering a special deal. If I turned in my old printer I could receive $100.00 off a new already discounted printer. The original price was around $500.00 so I was able to bring the price down to about $300.00 and walk out with this amazing printer. It is an all in one, which means it Prints, Copies, Faxes, and Scans. It can handle just about anything that a household would throw at it. We also have one in our office at work, and it works well for light business use too. It feeds ink from a main cartridge into a temporary cartridge and onto the job. This is good because if you are in the middle of printing and the main cartridge runs out you have time to replace it and not interrupt the job. In my mind, this is one of the best printers out on the market right now.  Hewlett Packard is a great company with good reliable products, and this printer is just another example of that.

The Ultimate Dividend Playbook By: Josh Peters

This week I want to talk about a book that I have been reading. The name of the book is The Ultimate Dividend Playbook by Josh Peters, CFA. Josh Peters is editor of Morningstar Dividend Investor.  Morningstar is an investment research company that tracks more than 250,000 investment offerings.
 I really enjoy learning about investing, primarily through the stock market. Dividend paying stocks are not the most popular and so there is not always a lot of information about them. This book is really great and outlines why dividend paying stocks over the long term are very great investments. I am about halfway through the book and have found it to be very insightful. I already had been looking into dividends because of the reliability of the income they produce. If you have are an investor or you are interested in investments check this book out. I think it will really change your mind on a lot of issues regarding investing.
