Earbuds.  Let’s dish about them.  My mother is adamant that my kids are not to use them, especially my son who likes to wear them when gaming.  “Nothing should go in the ear!” as she yelled at me when we were in Winnipeg this past summer and the fact that my son said he hears the game better and his friends when he…

The Juice Fountain Cold XL from Breville is fabulous!
