Baby, it's cold outside: 3 things I bought while shivering

Last week, I got a nasty cold; and this week was freezing here on the East Coast. I thought I’d share a few things that helped me survive.

1. Halls Defense. With my sore and scratchy throat and cough last week, I was looking for relief. I bought several different cough drop products, and Halls Defense worked the best for me. While Halls product comparison does not have put their Defense line as the solution to my symptoms, I found them to work great without the medicine-y, menthol taste. They get my thumbs up! (Halls Bursts did not pass my tests. Too small and traditional cough drop-ish.)

2. Tetley Drawstring tea. I love tea, and while I’m not likely to abandon my fav brands of Revolution and Mighty Leaf, I appreciate this innovation from Tetley. I didn’t buy this, it was in my hotel room this weekend… but I would have bought it to try it out. What is so cool? Tetley’s taken care of a customer problem… you don’t always have a spoon to quickly squeeze the excess out of your tea bag. Their drawstring bag worked great, and I recommend it, if you enjoy tea. I’m also hoping that Revolution and Mighty Leaf will learn from Tetley. Kudos to the Tetley team for solving this problem elegantly!

3. Tati from YES Watch. While I was avoiding the elements outside, I remembered to look at YES watch to see if they had released a much anticipated “low profile” watch I’ve wanted. Let me explain… I’ve had a Cozmo YES watch for years, and I LOVE IT! It it is a great geek watch, showing you when the sun and moon rise and set. This is terrific for photography, deciding when to run, and a host of other reasons. The biggest problem for me has been its profile. It is a “male” watch… heavy and bulky… so I can’t wear it with evening wear. The dear folks at YES have now come out with a lower profile watch, the Tati. YIPPEE… mine’s on order now.🙂

Hope you enjoyed this edition of three things!

What is on my shirt today? I’m actually wearing this one, as I had made it early. Today, I’ll wear it in honor of the Tetley team:

Walk in your customer’s shoes

    .. although I could say that I’ve owned two watches since I was 17 – both of them Seiko black and gold analogs. I’d still be wearing the first one (I do have it) if Seiko hadn’t come out with their Kinetics line – no more batteries for me!

    Anywho… I got some spam comments from here – do you have Akismet enabled? If not, go to WordPress.org and create an account. They’ll email an API key. Enter that in Akismet (comes with WP install by default) to activate it.

    Thanks, Matt. All done. I just hadn’t remembered to take the time to activate Akismet… the spam hadn’t gotten bad until now. Thanks for the push, and sorry for letting it get bad.🙂

    Take care,
    Jana
