The Geek and The Beast

sidebar-top-pic 300x380

For those of you who don’t know yet my wife Brittany and I have joined forces by combining our blogs into one. I will no longer be posting regularly here on The Domestic Beast Blog, I will instead be providing all of my usual content over at The Domestic Geek Blog. After some discussion we both decided that from a business standpoint this was the best course of action for us to take.

The decision to merge blogs has not only helped our business to thrive in these few short weeks but has also taken a lot of pressure off of our family life as well. With both of us focusing our energies in one spot it gives us more time to spend with our daughter. It also makes it easier for us to accomplish more as a singular business instead of spreading ourselves between two different sites.

I will still be providing all of the same great content that you have come to find here on The Domestic Beast Blog just over at a different site. You will also notice that some of my posts have already been moved over to the other site and this will continue to happen as we move forward. I hope you still continue to enjoy our content and please feel free to comment and drop me a line, I will still be available @

Thank you for your understanding and I hope to hear from you soon!

Dawn Beyond the Sink

dawn beyond the sink

I spent five years working as a mechanic in a truck shop and as mechanics we all know the best ways to keep our tools clean in the shop, there is a parts washer that works well and also several cans of different chemicals that can shine tools up with a single spray. What about when you are not at the shop and you are in your garage at home? I used to think I had to go and buy those special chemicals for my own use until a wise old friend told me just to use Dawn.

The Bouqs Company

 What if I told you that you could get beautiful flower arrangements that are hand picked from the side of a volcano and shipped directly to your house? You would most likely tell me I am crazy and that even if that were true it would cost a small fortune! Well that is exactly what I am telling you and I promise that it is all true. You can get flowers that were grown on the side of a volcano, handpicked for you and shipped right to your house and for an amazing flat rate price.

Last week we decided to take a family day and head out to the zoo, my daughter loves to see all the animals. Unless its a llama that you can feed, apparently she likes the larger animals to be further away from her! Anyway while we were at the zoo I noticed that they had already started some of their fall work and that got me thinking about all the fall work I have at home, so much for a relaxing zoo day right.

Should a two year old have a tablet?

Should a two year old have a tablet? This is a question that we debated before eventually buying our daughter her first tablet as a birthday present for her second birthday. This has turned out to be a great investment for us and for our daughter. She is two years old and not only can she count to ten she can also read and recognize some of the numbers already! Recently she rode with me to work and as we were parked outside of bay three she looked at the giant blue number 3 and said “daddy it’s three”. I was a little shocked and then she did it again the next day, I was wearing a baseball shirt with number 49 on the back and she said “mommy it’s four”!

how to make a tire swing

I remember the old hay rope we had up in the barn on our old farm, we used to use it to swing from the top of a little wooden motor shed over to the mixer. This was probably really dangerous, no it was definitely dangerous, but we wanted to be like Indiana Jones, I mean who didn’t back then right?

 We never did get anything more than a couple bumps or bruises, which was lucky I guess. When we first moved in to our house my wife pointed out a tree limb on one of our trees and said that it looked like a good spot for a tire swing. Now four years and one two year old later I got to work making a tire swing.

Sandbox Memories

Do you remember your backyard from when you were a kid, or that special place where you would play all summer long? Most of us had a place like that when we were growing up, that special area or special piece of equipment. For me it was definitely the sandbox, we would spend our entire summer days in that sandbox with our tractors. We had an entire farm inside our sandbox, or a construction yard, or a quarry, whatever our imaginations came up with that day.
