Stop the madness!

I’m tired of the madness. Remember a time when other things mattered besides brackets and basketballs? Things like online appliances, top rated digital cameras, and the best E-readers. Let’s think about all the better activities you could be doing than watching basketball games all day on top rated flat screen TVs every week in March.

1) Take pictures on top rated digital cameras! You never know when friends will leave or the green grass dies, so take pictures of them now so you’ll never forget. Stop obsessing over teams who will never play the way you want them to and capture action from your own life. With top rated digital cameras that shoot 3D panoramic, you can capture wide-angled panoramic shots of your surroundings and then you can easily flip the dial to the portrait option for a telephoto shot of your friend laughing. Capture HD videos as well and cut the guesswork out of lighting and focusing with the auto-focus and auto-exposure on point-and-shoot/DSLR hybrid cameras like this one. 

2) Read a book on the best E-readers: When was the last time you read a book that wasn’t Harry Potter or the Da Vinci Code? Don’t say Eat, Pray, Love. It’s time to read War and Peace. It won’t seem nearly as intimidating on a lightweight e-reader. The best E-readers even have night lights, so you won’t have to get out of bed to turn on a light switch or read your hand all the way over to the nightstand to flick on a lamp. If you’re not in the mood for War and Peace, but still in the mood for basketball, check out Tom Wolfe’s fratire I Am Charlotte Simmons based loosely on Duke University. Reading it on your best E-reader will remind you why you stopped watching the Big Dance on top rated flat screen TVs in the first place.

3) Do your laundry with a top-rated washer and dryer pair from an online appliance store! Get away from all the screens and turn instead to that laundry pile that’s become a mountain range. If you’re in a crunch and need to pull together a non-PJ outfit immediately, select the “Refresh” cycle on your dryer, add a dryer sheet, and let your clothes bounce around with air flow. Put that white blouse on a wrinkle-free cycle so it looks fresh and clean. Not seeing that option? We might know of an online appliance store that can help you refresh your laundry set. You’ll find tons of dryers with air-flow and wrinkle-free cycle options and other online appliances at your local online appliance store.

4) Throw a party! After all that time in front of top rated flat screen TVs, it’s time to rev-up your weather-proof speakers, and fire-up your outdoor barbecue. Pull out some cornbread from your convection oven, toss some chicken on the grill, and try not to think about that orange ball with black stripes while you devour some glazed sweet potato tater tots.
