Though well-versed in the art of repairing iOS and Android smart devices, Phone-Fix's technicians’ electronics expertise extends to the realm of portable game systems, video-game consoles, and beyond. With a wave of their soldering iron, they skillfully mend mishaps from broken LCD screens on an iPhone 4S to a red ring of death on an Xbox 360 to a broken charging port on a Samsung Galaxy. Even unlisted electronics may find themselves revived by Phone-Fix's techs, who stand ready to offer their services after receiving an email, contact form, or bat signal.
Somewhere in Oregon every November, a flatbed truck trundles down the lone dirt road past row upon row of fir trees. Every mile or so, one of a team of winter-weather lumberjacks jumps down from the cab of the truck and gets to work cutting and piling eight-foot firs. That's when a duo of choppers circles the man-made forest, air-lifting each tree and dropping them off near the truck where they're bundled and loaded for the long drive back to Texas.
For the Bell and Lane families, this annual excursion is a Christmas tradition. For 12 years, the two families have made the trek out to the Pacific Northwest. There, they set to work harvesting Douglas, Frasier, Grand, and Noble Firs in an effort to outfit homes with yuletide cheer and reduce the number of hiding places for D. B. Cooper.

One warm evening, Larry Moore was smoking cigars outdoors with his son when it occurred to them that they would have nowhere to smoke come winter. Out of this quandary rose En Fuego Tobacco Shop, a lounge where Larry, his sons, and the rest of the community can gather to smoke cigars, talk shop, and watch ball games at ease. The rich aroma of pipe tobacco wafts past the lounge's exposed brick walls and cushy, leather chairs, and cigars from Nicaragua, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic receive study-abroad credit for filling the shop's humidors.
Make 5 Dinners in One Hour unfolds convenient meal plans that allow busy families to assemble five days' worth of meals in one brief sitting and avoid overbuying groceries. At the beginning of each month, culinary planners issue recipes for four weeks' worth of meals via email. Included grocery lists allow customers to buy only the exact ingredients they need, avoiding unnecessary items, such as canned donuts and loose yogurt. Instructions guide cooks through each entree, stocking the fridge with five days' worth of dinner in about 60 minutes, with dinners in the past including roasted sausage, peppers, and onions with mashed potatoes, and jerky turkey burgers with sweet potato fries. Although each meal plan is laid out for a family of five or five children raising each other in a boxcar, recipes and grocery lists are easily amendable for smaller undertakings, and side dishes can easily be swapped out depending on personal tastes and compatibility with entrees in online quizzes.
