It’s that time of year when we honor our Dads — and our Grads

BUT before I reveal my Dads & Grads Gadget Gift Ideas— aka DADgets & GRADgets, let me take a moment to shamelessly plug my Gadget Game Show aka “WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?”

If you LOVE GADGETS (and I know you do) — AND YOU LOVE A FUN GAME SHOW— then check out my YouTube Gadget Game Show called “WHAT THE HECK IS THAT?”  (it’s also streaming on DBTV !! )

The Game Show is sort of “Shark Tank” meets “What’s My Line?” / “I’ve Got A Secret”

During each episode panelists try to guess the identity of a “mystery gadget”

How’s your GADGET IQ?

ZeroDrain — For the Dad who wants to be a hero by improving the look and function of the bathroom drain, here’s the award winning ZeroDrain® by California Faucets.
