VueScan Software & CanoScan 8400F Review

VueScan Software & CanoScan 8400F Review

I did an Internet search and tried out VueScan by visiting this web site:  https://www.hamrick.com/

They allow you to try the VueScan software out before you pay them any money.  My tests worked so well that I purchased the software.  It is so simple to scan any document.  And, by the way, the CanoScan 8400F is a very impressive scanner.

Men’s Jacket Manufacturers Seem To Not Understand.

Men’s Jacket Manufacturers Seem To Not Understand.

Men’s jacket manufacturers seem to be making a mistake for me at my location for the following reasons. I live in a rather temperate climate. Average highs of 60°F (15.6°C) to 68°F (20°C)  Average lows of 45°F (7.2°C) to 55°F (12.8°C). I have been looking for the proper jacket for my location but all the stores near me have been a disappointment: Macy’s = Cincinnati, OH Burlington Coat Factory = New Jersey Target = Minneapolis, MN JC Penney = Plano, Texas Kohl’s….

The Alleged Utter Incompetence Of Some Businesses.

The Alleged Utter Incompetence Of Some Businesses.

October 2020 AAA keeps changing our separate billing that my wife and I have for our separate accounts.  For example, I have a personal umbrella insurance, to only cover me, but all of a sudden my wife appears on the billing for this account.  I was sent a rebate check for an account that my wife was paying for.  They keep changing our billing. The Week Magazine had me log in with one of my e-mail addresses and then gave…

Possible Reason Why Retail Stores Do So Poorly Against The Internet

Possible Reason Why Retail Stores Do So Poorly Against The Internet

It has been long held belief that local retail stores that do poorly is partially due to stocking the wrong product. I much rather shop at a local store than on the Internet for some products, like clothing and shoes. Here is a prime example. As the winter of 2018 and 2019 gets colder I start to reach for my pull over long sleeve shirts that partially button down in the front, typically 3 or 4 buttons. I require a…

NFL Football & Networks Fail To Meet Some Of Our Needs.

NFL Football & Networks Fail To Meet Some Of Our Needs.

“The rules about what games local TV stations are allowed to air are crafted between the NFL and networks which carry the games (FOX, CBS, NBC, ESPN and NFL Network). Local affiliates (i.e. FOX31 Denver) have little control in the process – and are sometimes at the mercy of the decisions made on-the-fly by the network.” https://kdvr.com/2013/11/08/how-the-nfl-and-tv-networks-influence-the-football-games-fox31-airs/ I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and a close friend of mine loves the Philadelphia Eagles. I have come to enjoy following that…

CERT TIP: Coaches Wristband

CERT TIP: Coaches Wristband

When we got to the section covering triage, I fully expected that I would forget what I had learned. I rather quickly came up with a solution. I remembered seeing football quarterbacks having a wrist band that showed vital information on their arm. I looked for this device and quickly found them for sale.

Bird Feeder, Scoop n’ Funnel Review.

Bird Feeder, Scoop n’ Funnel Review.

I love using my Cedar Works Scoop n’ Funnel for putting bird seed into my bird feeders.  This device offers two methods of putting bird seed into a feeder.  One method is to close the valve shut, dip the scoop into the bag of bird seed and then dump the contents into the bird feeder.  Most feeders have a rather small opening at the top and his funnel bottom fits perfectly.  I never use the scoop method but rather put…
