During a recent visit to the Dollar Tree, my attention was drawn to Rap Snacks Ramen featuring E-40 on the packaging. While I may not consider myself a devoted E-40 (or Boosie) fan, their names and music are familiar to me. Intrigued by this pop culture connection, I decided to give these Rap Snacks Ramen a try. (I had chatgpt rewrite my words… and that’s what I got. Yuk.)
These things tasted like regular cup noodles ramen. Salty. Not special. Not too bad either, but nowadays everyone wants fancy ramen.
I think the product is at the link above, but I’m not certain. I do know it was the low end Delta product. I bought it to replace a midrange Moen that, while acceptable, tended to wear out quickly, and require replacement cartridges, which were getting expensive. I found that Delta lasted longer, so I went with this alternative.
After using Sun’s Madras curry powder in a big tin from the restaurant store, I was ready to use larger quantities. I got this other product, Frontier Co-Op’s 1 pound sack of curry powder. This is a comparison and review.
Review of an inexpensive case for a low cost Android phone.
I got this on Ebay for around $15 shipped. It fit the phone perfectly, and has all the holes for all the ports. The plastic or rubber is coated with rubber paint, so it feels good in the hand.
The main feature is the rotating ring on the back, which helps you hold the phone (and gives your pinky a rest). It works, so far.
When it’s used with the heater vent, and the air conditioner is on, the glue will harden, and the metal plate will fall off the case.
To fix this problem, I scraped all the glue off (it’s sticky “booger glue” on paper tape), and then used epoxy to re-attach the metal plate.
To do this, use a small amount of epoxy, just enough to cover the entire surface without dripping, and then stick it back into position. Do not use too much glue, because it’ll stick up the ring’s swivel mechanism.
Set the case down on a piece of paper, with the back-side facing down, so the epoxy cement doesn’t drip into the swivel mechanism.
