Cool Ways to Lace Your Shoes

Many of us rely on one or two good ways to lace up our sneakers. (I must admit, I rarely even re-lace my sneaks once I take them home and out of the box!) So when I came across this new book, Laces: 100s of Ways to Pimp Your Kicks by Ian Fieggen, I was baffled to learn that not only do creative alternatives to your average Criss Cross Lacing exist, but they’ve got cool names like Zipper Lacing and Checkerboard Lacing, which immediately brought me back to my lanyard days at summer camp (ah… the cobra). But Fieggen’s also got an amazing website on which he shares how-tos and other great tips, like how to avoid the "Granny Knot" (a knot that always seems to come undone).

So go on, grab a pair of your kid’s kicks and get to work. Then take some pics and share them with us and Fieggen! PS – I dare you to try the Spider Web!!!

    The new Zune browser is surprisingly great, but not as excellent as the iPod’s. It functions very well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and includes a clunkier interface. When you occasionally prepare on by using the web browser that is not an situation, but if you’re organizing to browse the net alot out of your PMP then the iPod’s bigger display and greater browser could possibly be essential.

    Should you read the newspaper on occasion, make sure to save all of the papers that you have so that you can use them as packing material whenever you move. Padding is actually important to keeping your more delicate objects safe and sound during the move. You may also opt for clothes, sheets, or other cushy material to pack your items.

    One thing that you can do to help you save money is to find cheap (reely) packing materials. You may also be able to come across a place that will give their boxes away after they happen to be used. Buying boxes or containers yourself can be very costly, however, you can help to save money by checking with the employees at your local supermarket to ascertain if they will give you some of their boxes for free.

    This power supply works great on our two Dell Inspiron 1545 laptops. The one that came with our first laptop lasted 18 months. I’ll be happy if this power lasts that long, but looking at other reviews, I may not get more than a year out of it.
