I Was Looking to Buy Magic Beans As Gifts

Have you seen those new magic bean plants? They are really neat, but I was having a hard time finding them. It is a bean plant in a can. The bean seed is engraved with a message. When it sprouts, you can see the message on the sprout! I was searching everywhere to buy buy magic beans for use as gifts.

I had never seen anything like it before. I guess a machine is used to inscribe on the actual bean seed. Then the plant that emerges has the message visible on its surface. You can have a message such as “I love you” on a seed, and it shows when the seed merges from the soil that comes in a can. The can has a pull-top lid. Just put the bean in the soil, water it and the seed will sprout. In a few days, the message is visible to the person receiving the gift.

Staying Busy During Spring Cleaning

It’s that time of the year again; no dust bunny is safe, no husband is lazy and no smudge of dirt is going to be left behind as Americans across the country begin to clean out their homes once again during the annual spring cleaning blitz. I’m not sure how this ever started in the first place but it has become a common theme during Spring, one that most of us men are not quite as eager to follow as our wives might be! Thankfully with these made to measure wall shelves I was able to start working on the home improvement project that my wife and I decided to choose over the winter. I really thought I was going to have several issues trying to get this work ready to go due to my lack of carpentry skills.
