What is it? The Adonomix Bidet is a self contained bidet system. It has a dual setting system to clean front and back according to your needs. The nozzle recedes for ease of use. There’s also a self cleaning option. This bidet doesn’t need electricity either. It runs on water pressure from the toilet.
Who Uses It? A lot of people like this product. Disabled folks, senior citizens, and families just trying to save money on toilet paper. It installs quickly, and is easy to handle.
What did I think of it? I had mixed feelings about it. I found it a little hard to install. I didn’t have the right tools, and also don’t have a lot of upper body strength. The product itself is easy to use, but it takes some getting used to. The fact that it integrates into your current toilet instead of being another item to find space for is really handy. Do I think my friends should get one? Yeah, it’s a helpful things to have. Would I have bought it myself? Not so sure.
Disclaimer: I received this product at a discount in exchange for an honest test drive and review.

I got turned on to the CAP program through a book I read. It sounded fairly simple, so I think I’ll give it a try. The post will be sticky for awhile. No matter what I did, I couldn’t get it to work as a widget. (Yay technology!)
I will post updates as I get paid and learn more.
Where’s the best place to buy online business cards? Everyone defaults to Vistaprint, I know. But I’m wondering if there’s someplace better.
Any thoughts? Anyone?
I’ve been working on getting toxic cleaners out of our house for awhile now, and moving to using green alternatives. I had it almost completely done. Then I hit a snag: some of these natural cleaners require a lot of elbow grease and give a diminishing return. With all of my and Mrs. Linc’s various disabilities, we can’t wear ourselves out cleaning just to be green.
What we need are products that won’t break our bank, actually get things clean, last awhile, and won’t negatively affect our health. Every now and then I’ll write a post reviewing something we use at home. I’ll let you know about the ingredients, how easy it is to use, and whether we’re going to keep it or toss it.
Let’s start with our dishsoap.
We were paying almost $3/bottle for some all natural stuff. Then I was up at the dollar store and got a couple of bottles of Sun with Bleach Alternative. I felt a real difference almost immediately. Our dishes felt a lot cleaner and crud seemed to come off much easier. I am very much pleased with Sun dishsoap. Now, about the ingredients.
Hi! I get stuff really clean and don’t cost much.
Tonight it occurred to me that I don’t know what “with bleach alternative and clean scent” means. At first, I just turned the bottle around to look at the back. Nothing listed. In fact, there was no label at ALL!
Uh-oh! I’m naked back here! No ingredients for you.
Which means it’s time to go to the internet. Apparently lots of people want to know, because the link for the part of the site with ingredient sheets ranks higher than the home page does! Here is the sheet we need:
But we can’t just stop there. I read this through and am still at a loss. What do these words even mean? Let’s try and find out.
I don’t know much about 4G as a concept or cell speed, so I’ve been looking into it, because that’s what I do here at Your Info Linc. I found an interesting paper, plus a handy resource for folks. The paper/web page is called “4G plus Data Caps=Magic Beans”. One of the main points of the article is this:
“The 4G offered by major wireless carriers (with the notable exception of Sprint) is a waste of money because it comes with strict data caps. These data caps actively discourage the types of activities that 4G enables. Activities that are made possible by 4G, such as watching movies or uploading video to the internet, are made impossible by the data caps. As a result most users will avoid taking advantage of these new services out of fear of incurring large overage fees. That makes capped 4G little more than a bait and switch, like being sold a handful of magic beans. ”
Huh. Fascinating. The rest of the article, which includes the PDF version in the middle of the page, can be read here: http://www.publicknowledge.org/4g-data-caps-magic-beans
They also include a handy site called “What Is My Cap?” This lets people figure out how much in overage charges they would incur using their data plans exactly they way they want to, based on their carrier. Visit it here: http://whatismycap.org/
I should say beforehand that I do realize I’m biased toward Virgin Mobile, in large part because they are my prepaid provider. I jumped to them from T-Mobile. Knowing that, read on. 🙂
Folks who drop by have been looking for news about T-Mobile again, and since the merger is no longer an issue (for now), there has to be something else going on. I can’t tell just what it is yet, but I did stumble on something interesting.
On T-Mobile’s blog, they have an entry talking about their prepaid plans. In the entry, they say:
“Customers don’t have to make compromises with T-Mobile’s Monthly4G. Unlike what our competitors offer, our Monthly4G customers get the best devices, fast nationwide 4G network speeds and affordable service plan prices. “ They say that their prepaid service is a “better way to do prepaid”. Here’s the standard for figuring out their download speed comparison:
“Speed claim based on download speeds on Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G on T-Mobile’s 4G HSPA+ 42 Mbps network vs. competitors’ prepaid phones and networks.”
Now, I can’t say anything about their download speed, and I don’t know enough about devices to compare the Samsung Galaxy S Blaze 4G to anything Virgin Mobile sells. But I can look at prices across companies. Here’s what I see.
Edit: I thought Umpqua only had two branches. That is beyond not true. My new bank has WAY more than two branches. They’re all over Washington, Oregon, Nevada, and Northern California. Check it out for yourself: http://www.umpquabank.com/locator/new/ Ok, carry on with the post. 🙂
I am now a member at Umpqua Bank, “the greatest bank in the world”. And I have to say, they’re pretty cool. Here’s how it happened:
The regular readers here know I’ve been on a quest since September of 2011 to find a new place to move my banking. At first it was about our “too big to fail” banks and their attitudes around customer service, fee rollouts, etc. I decided to move out of Wells Fargo. It was a difficult choice in a way, because my family banked at Wells for years when I was a kid, and they have branches everywhere I have people.
But I have been learning that where you have your money matters ethically, even if you don’t have much.
I started by looking to join a credit union. Boy did that backfire on me. None of the credit unions wanted me. Once because my credit score wasn’t high enough (looking at you Salal, with your minimum 600 score requirement). Another time Chexsystems blocked me out.
So, after feeling like the school nerd trying in vain to get a date with the prom queen, I sucked it up again and started looking at local banks.
