Good morning crew,
I just had a birthday recently (that's why the wife bought me the dartboard). I am an unapologetic #%-years-old. It seems like only yesterday I was years.
Anyway, I came across a video of Zack (one of our videographers) and I doing a product video from about four years ago. We were doing a product called the 900 Lumen Utility Light
, or 'Do Everything Light' as it's called on the site.
A great little product. It is a 60 SMD (that's a kind of LED) worklight that you can stand up, or hang, or attach to metal surfaces with a magnet, or use like a flashlight. It cranks out 900 lumens, which is really pretty bright, but it will fit in your pocket.
We usually don't carry a product for that long, but this particular utility light has been so popular there has never been a reason to get rid of it. The other nice, little benefit is that I get to reminice about how I looked in my younger, wilder days.
So if you'd like to see ol' Joe as a young buck, or you're interested in the Utility Light, just click here

10 Step Guide to Being Handy Around the House
1. If you can't find a screwdriver, use a knife. If you break off the tip, it's an improved screwdriver.
2. Try to work alone. An audience is rarely any help.
3. Despite what you may have been told by your mother, praying and cursing are both helpful in home repair... but only if you are working alone.
4. Work in the kitchen whenever you can... many fine tools are there, its warm and dry, and you are close to the refrigerator.
5. If it's electronic, get a new one.
6. Keep it simple: Get a new battery; replace the bulb or fuse; see if the tank is empty; try turning it to the "on" switch; or just paint over it.
7. Always take credit for miracles. If you dropped the alarm clock while taking it apart and it suddenly starts working, you have fixed it.
8. Regardless of what people say, kicking, pounding, and throwing sometimes DOES help.
9. If something looks level, it is level.
10. Above all, if what you've done is stupid, but it works, then it isn't stupid.
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
A man sees a job ad posted on a construction site, "Handy man wanted; apply within."
So he does and speaks to the foreman.
"Can you drive a Bobcat?" the foreman asks.
"Can you plaster?"
"Have you ever done any carpentry?"
"If you don't mind me asking," says the foreman, "what's so handy about you?"
"Well, I only live about five minutes down the road..."
