Welcome to Buzz-Discovery. This is a special Monday feature of Fire Up Today, highlighting some of the newest, coolest, and most unusual stuff. You may find outrageous prices, unusual bargains, or tipping point merchandise. The theme this week is “Reaction.” All of these items are unique and will elicit strong reactions.
The 2007 Toyota Tundra is due out this coming February. Nicknamed the “Iron Fist” after the bold new grill and nose, this truck aims to turn the American truck market on its ear. Bigger, bolder & more powerful than ever, this new truck beats most of it’s American competition on the spec sheet. But it’s coming out at a time of high gas prices and lower truck sales. Will gas prices kill the iron fist? Probably not, but with Chevy boasting 20 plus miles/gallon for their new truck, the competition is sure to heat up.
The legendary Toyota quality will be a strong selling point and the available options are second to none. The bold new look has drawn extensive praise from the automotive press and focus groups. Park one of these in your driveway and the reaction will be great. Everyone will want to see it, drive it, and probably have one of their
Her smokey deep voice may remind you of Billie Holiday, but her style is truly all her own. Madeleine Peyroux doesn’t simply interpret songs, she possesses them…and vice versa. Half the Perfect World is the much-anticipated follow-up to Peyroux’s breakthrough album, Careless Love, which drew critical raves from around the world and sold more than a million copies. This time around, Peyroux focuses primarily on songs written by artists from her lifetime, including Leonard Cohen, Tom Waits and Fred Neil.
I love her song “River” that she sings with K.D. Lang with lyrics, “I wish I had a river to skate on, I would teach my feet to fly.” It brings you back to a time in your childhood, with Billie Holiday on the 78. Her timeless voice and vintage lyrics are amazing and the reaction is one of true joy.
I couldn’t believe the reaction to this book. I had borrowed the book from our librarian and put it on my desk at work. People came by one after the other in amazement. The first reaction was one of shock. They would scan the title once or twice just to make sure what it said. Then they would open the book and break out into joyous laughter at the pictures and the text. Soon, they would borrow the book and show other people. I would hear laughter in the background and the book would usually show up again after 15 or 20 minutes.
Part of a five book series, Walter is one of the funniest books you’ll ever read. In the series Walter overcomes rough weather, has adventures at a yard sale, and even takes a cruise. These books make great gifts for children and adults alike, and are guaranteed to bring a smile to your face!
This is an amazing device. Take it out of the box, adjust the stride length and clip it to your belt. Wear it all day long and take a look at the numbers at the end of the day. The Omron pedometer will surprise you just how far you walk in a day. My reaction was great… I found that I walk at least two or three miles a day on my job. The digital screen shows the number of steps that you walk, distance in miles, and calories burned. A healthy goal, according to the literature that comes with it, is 10,000 steps per day or just over 3 miles.
This quality device makes a great addition to any diet and exercise program. My wife and I love our unit and it usually elicits a walk at the end of the day to reach the magic 10,000 steps. Highly recommended!
