Got a Man hard to buy for???

Black & Decker has a new product out this year called the Ready Wrench. It has 16 sockets sizes. It adjusts to all the popular sizes so you only need ONE wrench and not several in your toolbox.

This would make a great present for those men in your family that you have NO IDEA what to buy for. Or a great stocking stuffer. I'm pretty sure all of those DIY men in your life would be thrilled to have this.

So I'm going to give away FOUR of these wrenchs! You have until tomorrow night at 6 p.m. eastern time to enter. I will post the winners and contact you and send them out on Wednesday so you can get them in time for Christmas! Just leave me a comment here and tell me you would like one!!!

And if you don't win - you can find these at Wal-Mart,, and as well as other retailers.

See newer post above to leave more comments - I think we reached the limit on this one.

This is a compensated review by BlogHer and HP.

That's right - I am totally serious!!

The nice people at HP recently sent me their new TouchSmart 600 PC. I've been using a pretty ancient Dell and so I'm a little blown away first that I have a new computer and second by how fancy this thing is.

It's look and feel to me is somewhat like an I-Mac - the all in one kind of thing. It has a 23 inch screen - which let me tell you is big! And it's so easy and nice to use. And it has this crazy feature called Touch Smart. It's kind of like using an iPhone (sorry I keeping referring to Apple products - but I know a lot of us use them - and this is just as great or better!!). You can touch the screen and do all kinds of neat things. It has great photo editing, slide show and movie applications.

BooMama is giving one away too and we were both SUPER excited about this feature called "Recipe Box". She and I both love to cook and eat food and this just made our lives a lot easier. You can pull recipes from the Internet to put in it and then it can be voice activated to give you commands wherever you are. Basically - it reads off the recipe while you are in the kitchen cooking. I don't know about you - but I do a lot of running back and forth to my computer when I make stuff.

It can be mounted on the wall and you can use the wireless keyboard across the room. It has TV and DVR in it! :-) I know I couldn't be more excited about an extra DVR in our house (not that I would EVER want to watch more than 3 shows at one time). You can also do netflix and it has a blu ray player!


They are letting me give one of my sweet readers a computer also!!!!

All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me why you would love to have an HP TouchSmart!
