Tip of the Week: BBQ Skewers Hack

Ramblings Thoughts, Skewers, BBQ, Tip, Life Hack, Grilling

I know that we do not have much time left to enjoy a good old BBQ, however, if you do plan to get the most out of the few days remaining and what to cook some kabobs....I have a hack tip for y'all!

Have you ever tried your hand at grilling some kabobs?  I mean I have seen some great recipes all over the internet and magazines that had definitely made me want to see if I could create some yummy kabobs!

So, after you spend a little time cutting up the meat, veggies and possibly fruit that you are going to have on your kebabs, and you spend the time to assemble all the kabobs, you realize that once you start grilling them, you skewer sticks are to burn or worse catch on fire.  And if you are not careful, your skewer will just break apart.....URGH!!!

Well, ladies and gents, all of this frustration can be avoided by adding one simple step to your preparation.....before you start cutting everything to size....soak your skewers in cold water for 5 - 10 minutes!  Doing this will cut down on the skewers burning.  TA-DA!!!!!

So, as most of you know, every once in a while, I am contacted by companies to test their products in exchange for my opinion.  It works out because I get free product just to try and provide my honest opinion about.  I also love doing reviews because it gives me a chance to try new products and let y'all know about them before you buy it.

That being said, I recently received a G. G. Martinsen 16 GB Mini Portable Mp3/Mp4 Player for free.  You can score your own for $20.29 on Amazon.  I must say that when I got it, I was thinking, what am I going to use this for, I have a stereo, a computer that has access to Youtube and Pandora, and I have a phone that plays music.

However, I am on this exercise kick to get my body in better shape and I don't want to bring my phone or lug a stereo with me down the road like they did with the big boom boxes back in the the mini player came in handy!

So, what are my thoughts on the actual player?  Check out the video to watch my review!

#AllLivesMatter Means ALL Lives Matter

Hot Topic, Discussion, Ramblings Thoughts, #AllLivesMatter, Police Brutality, Speak Up, Unite
For those of you that have stuck around and been a fan of Ramblings for a while, you will know that I am not one to keep my mouth shut when it comes to something that just does not sit right with me.  I also have posted on the numerous injustices of police brutality and how the police force need to be held accountable for their actions and stop killing our matter what the color or origin.

I love the movement #AllLivesMatter because all lives do matter.  I know there are plenty of people out there that are racist or prejudice, however, I believe everyone is equal, we all bleed the same color blood.  I do not agree with treating people differently because of the color of their skin or sexual preference.  And because of this belief, I stand behind those that fight to make it publicly known there are still injustices in the United States that MUST be corrected.

With that being said, I find it very disheartening to find out that another teen lost his life to the hands of a police officer and #AllLivesMatter did not speak one word about it.  (Click here to read the full story)  Is this because the teen was white?  It has plenty of people wondering.

I understand that the #AllLivesMatter movement is geared to the awareness of the hardships of black people and I agree they do have hardships especially when it comes to police treating them respectfully, however, the title of the movement is ALL Lives Matter, not just blacks, Asians, Mexicans or white people.  If we as a society really want the injustices of the country to be overcome, then we as a society need to support each other, grieve with each other and speak up for each other.  After all, this is not just one races' issue...I have seen police kill all races, I have seen police brutally attack all races and this is cannot be tolerated.

Let's stop making this about race and come together to demand change for a better, safer life for all races.  Police officers are suppose to protect and serve...they are suppose to be color blind when it comes to protecting and serving....lets make this happen by being color bling ourselves (at least just for this cause).
