InstaJunction Product Review + PromoCode


Posted by Keith | Posted in Gift Guides, giveaways | Posted on 03-12-2013


As most of you already know, I’m a budding photographer and it’s been one of my passions for a bit of time now; so I was totally excited when approached me about doing a product review. Instajunction is a website that allows you to order custom products using your own photographs from Instagram, Facebook, or your own collection on your computer. It felt like the perfect partnership: they get information about their products broadcasted to a larger audience and I get to see what some of my work looks like actually printed out. I’ve been a bit nervous to print my work so far, afraid it wouldn’t look good on paper. So this product review gave me the opportunity to come out of my shell a little. Thank You Instajunction.

I’m going to break the review down into the following categories:
– Product Variety
– Ordering Experience
– Delivery Speed
– Product Quality

Best Buy $25 Gift Card Giveaway (5winners) & New Store Review


Posted by Keith | Posted in Advice, giveaways, Opportunities | Posted on 15-10-2012

Same Store, Completely New Experience!!!

Something miraculous happened to me (and by extension, you) recently; Best Buy contacted me and asked me to come out to the grand reopening of one of their stores in Minnesota.  They wanted me to check it out and find out about all of the new and exciting changes that they’ve made and then come back and tell all of you guys about it.  Okay maybe miraculous is too strong of a word, but it’s still pretty freaking awesome!  There are a couple reasons that make it “pretty freaking awesome”:

  1. As you guys know, Best Buy is my favorite store; even Tre knows this, anytime something from Best Buy comes in the mail, he ensures that it’s kept safe and separate for me until I come home (maybe he enjoys the sparkle in my eye when I open it)
  2. Best Buy truly has made some really amazing changes, and if it wasn’t for this opportunity, I wouldn’t have known about a few of them.  Since I’m gonna tell you guys all about them, it means you may not have known about them either
  3. The good folks over at Best Buy were thoughtful enough to provide me with a gift card for coming in and doing the review.  And because they are so awesome, they also provided 5 (FIVE) gift cards to be given away to Daddy’s Fish Bowl readers.
  4. I think many of you were sold with reason number 3, so I’ll just stop here.

Continue reading to find out all about the cool new changes that Best Buy has implemented and to find out how you can win the $25 Best Buy Gift Card.

Well it’s finally here, the moment that you’ve all been waiting for; it’s time to find out the lucky winner of our Sex Guess Giveaway.  We had 28 entries that guessed Baby Guppy would be a girl and 16 entries that guessed for a boy.  I want to thank all of you for entering and coming along for the ride as we played the waiting game to find out our babies gender.  However, given that we aren’t having twins, only one group of you guys could be right and that group is the folks that guessed Baby Guppy was a girl!

All 28 names were assigned a random number and then 28 numbers were placed into a hat, with one winner to be drawn.  The drawing was conducted last night and the winner will be revealed “live” by watching the following video.

Good Luck Guys!


P.S.     Ty’s hat was not harmed during the filming of this video

P.S.S.    Tre’s drum sticks were not harmed after they were forcefully removed from him

Please find below some conclusive scientific data to assist with your determination of the baby’s gender.


Test #1: The Heartbeat Test – If baby’s heartbeat is above 140bpm, then it is a girl; if it is below it is a boy

Results: Heartbeat Range 148-151

Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL


Test #2: Key To My Heart Test – If the pregnant woman picks up a key from a flat surface by the narrow end, it is a girl; if the key is retrieved by the fat end, it is a boy

Results: Narrow End

Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL


Test #3: Chinese Gender Chart – Based on conception date/due date and mother’s age, the Chinese gender chart can determine the sex of the baby

Results: See Conclusion

Conclusion: IT’S A BOY


Test #4: Ring On A String – Tie a ring to a string and hold it over Mom’s belly, if the ring swings in a circular motion, it’s a girl; however, if it swings back and forth, it’s a boy

Results: Circular Motion

Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL


Test #5: Baby In The Belly – If the woman is carrying high, it’s a girl; if she is carrying low, it’s a boy

Results: We feel that she is carrying high, but see for yourselves and make a decision

Is That Baby High Or Low???

Conclusion: IT’S A GIRL
