1584 1584_ () 1584 1584 UPDATE, Friday morning: I’ll leave this open until this afternoon, so all the good folks in all the time zones can have a fair chance. Thanks for entering! May the queasiest man win!

Today at Testosterhome, we are giving away a pair of Psi Bands, adjustable wrist bands worn to help alleviate nausea. The pair up for grabs look like that cute red band in the middle of the picture (just in time for Valentine’s Day!).

According to the press release, Psi Bands are “FDA-cleared to relieve nausea most commonly caused by pregnancy, travel (motion sickness), chemotherapy and anesthesia.”

There is one catch to entering the drawing: if your name is chosen (from a random selection), you have to be willing to let me know how the Psi Bands work for you.

Enter your name in the comment section, and be sure to have a valid email so I can let you know if you’re the winner. I’ll keep it open until midnight. Good luck! 1584″>

“Funny,” says Henry, “this doesn’t taste like mousse.”

Gramma has introduced the boys to the world of hair mousse, and they cannot get enough. They are clamoring to style their hair and get it just. so. before leaving for school. The mousse even holds Henry’s hair for a few hours; every little bit helps. 1583″>


Wheel Power

1582 1582_ () 1582 1582 We are in full Pinewood Derby mode around here, talking, thinking, researching our methods to build the fastest and sweetest looking car for the upcoming competition. Last night the boys were up very late working with Paul on sanding and painting, watching paint dry and then sanding some more.

During a break in all the work, while another coat of paint was drying, we all gathered in the front room for quick family prayers, but mostly to discuss the Derby. At length. Again.

One of the boys had an idea to do something radical to the wheels, and thus began some kind of discussion about the three levels of wheel awesomeness that would be acceptable at the Derby. I wasn’t really clear on most of it, but it seemed to involve levels like turbo, even more turbo, and extreme turbo awesomeness.

“I’m confused,” I offered, trying to enter the conversation. “Aren’t wheels pretty much a standard shape?”

“Yes and no,” someone answered me, and I’ll admit that answer left me a bit confused. The conversation continued, with no more explanations for me, and Paul and the boys moved on to which level of wheel trickery Team Balducci would employ.

“What about the extreme one,” asked one of the boys, “let’s do that.”

“No way,” answered Ethan, “that would be too much. That one would just blow everybody’s minds.” 1582″> ,
