When you want to help but don’t know how – Kindness in a box

By |2019-05-21T11:36:50+01:00May 19th, 2019|Categories: Reviews|Tags: , , |

Cancer, the dreaded C word - the other one.  When it happens to us, of course, it's a huge shock.  Why me!  Cancer is something that happens to someone else!  No one wants to take that journey in life.  But once we find out about it there is no going back, we have to tackle it head-on.  The only save here is that we did find out, so now we have a chance to Kick Cancer from our lives.  It's also difficult for family and friends who feel helpless and who want to help but they don't know how - Cancer, its such a big shock for all. Since an early age, my life has been affected in some way by cancer. From the age of 15, I dealt with it day in and day out from when mum was diagnosed. It came and went and came and went - for 15 years.  I remember then, how friends and relatives felt.  People wanted to help, to offer some assistance, to say that they are there if they are needed, to [...]

How to get Facebook Group Analytics

By |2017-02-08T01:18:12+01:00November 6th, 2016|Categories: Reviews, Social Media, Social Networks|Tags: |

You have been able to get analytics for pages for ages because facebook have their very own analytics built in and it's quite useful. If you want to find out how to get Facebook Group Analytics its a bit more difficult. Facebook Groups vs Pages Many business owners choose a Facebook Group over a page now. Why? Because not only are Facebook groups are a proven way to form connections and discussions because they feel more like a community than a page. Pages are still valuable even though some businesses seem to think a page is a way to shout about their products and services, without using them to provide value for their community. Which unless you are Pepsi, is a big mistake. Although even Pepsi don't just post boring "buy my stuff now" posts, they have great content which includes video and interactive posts, it is still all about them but still. With Facebook Pages you can use ads,  you can add a variety of apps so that people can easily find you elsewhere, or you can collect email addresses and [...]

StartUp Home Care Platform Hometouch changing Social Care as we know it

By |2017-02-08T01:18:16+01:00September 8th, 2016|Categories: Reviews|Tags: |

Hometouch is an online marketplace for home carers and families to find each other.  As you can imagine for me this tech service which uses Saas was a dream to find.  Getting the carers you want is a very difficult, upsetting and lengthy process for families.   This, let me tell you IS the solution. StartUp Home Care Platform Hometouch changing Social Care as we know it Hometouch uses SaaS, Software as a service to help families find the carer they want at affordable prices and also helps carers get paid the money they deserve.  From what I understand carers can charge the rates they want, (no more minimum wage for them) and Hometouch takes a commission for connecting them with families and running the system. Hometouch was founded by Doctor Jamie Wilson who is a dementia physician in 2015 after he noticed the amount of people waiting for suitable care on the NHS.  The Startup has had three lots of successful funding rounds since then.  I can see why this is such a great idea and already works really well.

By |2017-02-08T01:18:17+01:00June 27th, 2016|Categories: Reviews|Tags: , , , , |

I'm a huge fan of all things Logitech  so I often get emails from them with money off voucher codes, this time, when I clicked through (sucker) I found I have 25% off and the headline -  Logitech are having a mouse party, of course I had to find out more.  It wasn't house party with a typo.. Logitech are having a mouse party So what was it all about .. well  - Logitech have got a new Wireless Mouse the M238 and its so cute and colourful - I love the web page for it too.  You can scroll through 9 different quirky and colourful designs to see how they look.  They've got all these weird and wonderful hands holding the mouse to show that you can have whatever design to make your personality shine, I like it!

Simple Music Player for People with Alzheimers

By |2017-02-08T01:18:21+01:00May 7th, 2016|Categories: Reviews|Tags: |

My dad has suffered with memory problems for many years, and as a tech geek we have found it hard to find tech equipment easy enough to use to feed his tech addition - until he was diagnosed with Alzheimers I'd not thought to look on the Alzheimers Society website, and there we found this Simple Music Player for people with Alzheimers. Ever since I was a kid a loved the stuff my dad had, he had a thirst for knowledge and technology that he has passed down to me - first, it was all of the huge dictionaries and then the full set of Britannica Encyclopedia that he owned which were always open and used, not just sat on the shelf collecting dust. I remember the very exciting time in the 90's when he got his first computer and we found that you could get the encyclopedias on CD-ROM, which now is only available digitally.  A sad story actually - because then came the internet where you could find out anything you wanted to know about on the web, but that's another [...]

My First 3 Months with the GoPro Hero4 Silver

By |2017-02-08T01:18:25+01:00December 7th, 2015|Categories: Reviews|Tags: , , |

My First Three Months with a GoPro Hero4 Silver hasn't gone too well.  Or should I say WITHOUT the GoPro Hero4 Silver.  I would have thought by now, I'd have a great review for you with videos and images for you to gasp and delight at but no, sadly, we have hardly even touched the GoPro Hero 4 Silver camera GoPro Hero 4 Silver I found a company online called SLR HUT offering some great prices for bundles of the GoPro Hero 4 Silver.  A sports bundle, an outdoor kit, many types of accessory bundles with everything you might need to get going, and the price so much cheaper than elsewhere.  I was a little concerned, because you know you don't get something for nothing - but could find no valid reasons not to buy from them, and the bundle seemed just so handy. Many sites had people asking if anyone had bought from SLR HUT, some reviews good and some bad, mostly people just suspicious of them as the prices are so cheap. I also read on various networks that the site [...]

By |2017-02-08T01:18:45+01:00February 10th, 2015|Categories: Reviews|Tags: , , , |

Lelo, the leading sex toy brand has today released Beyond the Wave - an interactive movie by Lelo for Valentine's Day.  This is the first time a sex toy company has released a mainstream movie. Before you dash off thinking this movie is going to be an advert for sex toys and porn its not, so far from it, infact its the complete opposite to what you might expect -  please read on. Beyond the Wave - an interactive movie by Lelo for Valentine's Day You could say that Beyond the Wave is a love story but its actually more than that, its deeper. Lelo's intention with this movie is to bring couples closer together on an emotional level.  To remind us how to enrich our relationships even when times are hard and to not take each other for granted.   It shows us how important it is to actually communicate and to spend time with someone and to understand where they are coming from.  Which is rather different to the attention that is focused on BDSM - "Bondage and Discipline, Sadism and Masochism" [...]
