This would be I if I was lucky enough to live in California.

There is no way, however, I can stay at home. I have to go walkabout.

IF I was in California I would be heading STRAIGHT for Mexico — so I can be FREE.

Screw the Wall. Nothing is going to keep me locked up.

Teischan’s (11) Latest Painting Project — A Table For Her Hamster Cage.

She has embellished it further. Click here to see.


She found this table, for free, at our local “Swap Shop“. It was covered in a cheap, stick-on veneer. She stripped the veneer off and set about painting it. It is meant to be for a hamster cage.

She is working on a large — v. LARGE — wall mural in her room, using the same paint. She is building up quite the collection of paint. Had to get her more yesterday. Seems to be taking her ‘Teischan‘ quite seriously.

Totally Hooked On Power Outlet Taps With Built-In USB Charging Ports.

Every once in awhile I run into a product that I immediately fall in love with because it is exactly what I needed — sometimes not even knowing that I so needed it till I saw the product.

That is the case with this 6-outlet wall mount tap with 2 built-in 2.4 amp USB charging ports. It is just what I wanted. I love it.

Yes, like so many other households our house is littered with charging devices — we even have them in the car and I have a bag of adapters and cords for when we travel.

With my two cameras, the Panasonic Lumix FZ1000 and the Sony RX100 M2, and Teischan’s Samsung, I have a charging station set-up in my office just for the batteries given that I have 8 batteries in total to deal with. For convenience I have it on the floor next to my reading chair since much of what I read when seated in that chair has to do with cameras. So I also need power for a reading light and a clock around that chair. Though I have an extension strip off the wall outlet I was running out of outlets.

So the other day I was thinking that it was time to get a wall ‘block’ with say 6 outlets. I was going to get around to ordering it. Then within 48-hours I get an e-mail, purely by coincidence, by a TV promotion company trying to sell me a tap with built-in USB charges. Eureka! That is what I wanted.

I checked Amazon. Their prices were better. They actually had the TV promotion product for CHEAPER. But it did not have very good reviews.

Then I found this, the ‘Cable Master‘ product, with better reviews and only fractionally more expensive. I ordered it. It arrived Friday.

It works. Works well. The USB chargers worked, in parallel, just fine. I know that 2.4 amp is good. That is what I use in the car. I charged my pad, Teischan’s Samsung camera and my phone. All worked fine. I am chuffed. I am going to get a FEW of these. I would like to have one in each room.

Yes, down the road, say 10 years from now, I visualize all new houses with power outlets with built-in USB charging ports.
