Adventure Medical Kits, video review

A first aid kit is necessary for your vehicle, house, and even your suitcase when you travel. Today, I take a look at the World Travel model from Adventure Medical Kits. This one is rather large for personal travel. It’s designed to be used for up to four people on a multi-day trip. Hence, it contains quite a bit of the items you might need, from bandages and pain killers to a scissor and spare bottles for your own meds. Take a look at the video:

I would add a few things, such as a seat belt cutter, my personal medical info on a card, a penlight, and hand sanitizer. Still, this is a great kit to have on hand. Check the one you have and make sure the meds are current and that it is customized for your own personal needs.

Zoom H4n, video review

The Zoom H4n is an excellent digital audio recorder that is absolutely packed with features. In fact, the H4n has so much within it that I recommend checking out the Zoom company website for the details. Suffice it to say, this audio recorder far exceeds my expectations. I’m using it every week to improve my video productions by recording sound on location, especially sound effects that can be added later. Here’s a video review of it, including audio recorded at the Strasburg Railroad in Lancaster County, PA, USA.

Now you saw one of the tricks of the trade, gathering sound separately and then using it with another video take for a specific reason. In a movie production, this happens all the time, allowing for dialog to be heard over top the sound of machinery or traffic or something else that would otherwise mask it. Whether you making videos like me, or a singer/songwriter, or a band looking to make a demo, the H4n will serve you well at a price all of us can afford.

Interview at Dom’s Kitchen

Dominic Condo’s blog, domskitchen.com, is one you should check out and check out frequently. Dom blogs about cooking his favorite Italian-American dishes. He’s a regular guy with extraordinary talent in the kitchen. Here’s my interview with Dom, which includes his version of a typical Sunday dinner.

That was a great meal! Both Dom and his wife are employed full-time plus they have two children. Using his creative skills in the kitchen, he manages to maintain family traditions while serving up some fine food all the while keeping his family tight. I have only one question. How do you stay so thin, Dom?

ESV Study Version, video discussion

The English Standard Version Study Bible has proved to be an invaluable resource for me as I do research for a novel I’ve been working on for nearly two years. Of course, it contains the text of the Bible, but it also features an introduction to each book by a scholar who provides additional contextual insight. Then there are the diagrams, maps, and illustrations, as well as glossaries and cross reference indices. Here’s my video discussion:

If you’re interested in a deeper look at the Bible, I can highly recommend this version. And don’t forget, it comes with the key to access the content on the internet, which makes it that much easier. All in all, a useful study tool.
