Honoring Health Care Professionals

This past week was National Nursing Home Week. If you don’t have any loved ones in a nursing home or rehabilitation facility, or don’t know someone who works in one, you may have never even heard of it, let alone know how to celebrate it. Those of us who do spend the week honoring health […]

Mothers Day More Than Flowers and a Card

Mothers Day is next Sunday, May 9th. Every retailer, florist, and restaurant will be pitching their products and services as the best way to show mom how much you care. Let’s face it, most of us owe our moms more thank yous than we can count. All the love, protection, comfort, and kindness a mother […]

Bathroom Humor…

Last night I was out to dinner with some friends, and was introduced to a bunch of new acquaintances. Inevitably, the question came up, “What do you do for a living?” Typically, I see my wife cringe with fear, hoping that the asker has fully prepared themselves for my answer, and maintains an open mind. […]

What it Really Means to Celebrate Earth Day Every Day

This Thursday, April 22nd marks the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. While this isn’t necessarily a “holiday” that one should “celebrate”, it should be a day of reflection, education, and committment. Earth Day was started on April 22, 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson. According to Nelson, the idea actually took root in 1962 during John […]

No One Likes To Talk About Constipation

Being in the toilet bidet seat business, sometimes you have to talk about some unpleasant topics. Trust me, my jokes are often considered “toilet humor”, and my “small talk” often has no boundaries. No one likes to talk about constipation. While not too many people can talk about things relating to going the bathroom, for […]

Why I Would Love For C.C. Sabithia To Need a Spaloo

Happy Easter! Today was a beautiful Easter Sunday in most of the country. Spring is finally here! Whether you hid or found eggs, attended church, or put yourself in a sugar coma after raiding your kids’ Easter baskets (ok, so what can I say, the Cadbury Eggs get me every year), I hope you enjoyed […]

Hemorrhoid Sufferers: You Must Read This!

While browsing through WebMD the other day, I found an astonishing statistic. More than 10 million Americans suffer from hemorrhoids and more than half are estimated to be over age 50. While no one likes to talk about hemorrhoids, I felt that I must bring the subject up, since there are simple ways that may […]

Going Green

I hope everyone had a nice St. Patrick’s Day this past week. There certainly was a lot of green around- the Chicago River, shamrocks, food coloring enhanced beer, as well as all of the cash that was spent on corned beef and cabbage and cover charges at cramped Irish bars. Speaking of green, what have […]

Roughing It Without My Spaloo

This weekend, I took the family camping to a nice little state park in South Carolina. The weather was gorgeous; a touch of spring was in the air, while the nights were cool and crisp. After the rain that most of the East Coast had experienced this week, it was a welcome reprieve. The fresh, […]

Celebrities and Bidets

It’s no secret that bidet seats have been in the news a lot lately. After all, they are still a relatively new concept here in America, and are certainly less mainstream than in other parts of the world. Many people are still getting used to the idea, while others still need to be educated on […]
