    Speed Cubing World Record holder Charlie Eggins

    Speed Cubing World Record holder Charlie Eggins

    Charlie Eggins, the Rubik's Cube maestro, has just shattered not only records but also our perception of what is humanly possible! Susie had the pleasure of chatting with this puzzle prodigy after he achieved the unthinkable at the Australian Nationals in Moreton Bay in September 2023.
    Move over Spider-Man, because Charlie here can solve a Rubik's Cube blindfolded faster than you can say "web-slinging superhero!" With a mind-blowing time of 12.10 seconds, he has officially secured the World Record single for blindfolded cubing. Did I mention he did it with his eyes closed? Or covered at least.
    Charlie's talents extend far beyond his impressive solving skills. He's also a YouTube sensation, where you can find him posting videos that are equal parts educational, inspiring, and as addictive as a Rubik's Cube itself. Whether you're a novice or a seasoned speedcuber, Charlie's channel is the place to be if you want to embark on or continue your speedcubing journey.
    If you're curious for more details on Charlie's remarkable achievements, be sure to check out his WCA profile under the code 2019EGGI02. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. This guy is the real deal, the Rubik's Cube wizard we never knew we needed.

    Tracking Watch for High Needs Kids - Will it work for your peace of mind?

    Introducing My Buddy Gard: Empowering Peace of Mind for Families of Special Needs Children and Aging Parents
    For parents with children who have special needs, particularly those who are neuro-non typical, finding effective solutions to ensure their safety and well-being is a constant concern. In the quest for a reliable tracking device, doubts and questions arise—will it truly work for their unique child? Similarly, many aging parents aspire to maintain their independence, but their adult children and loved ones worry about their safety should an unforeseen circumstance occur. Enter My Buddy Gard, a cutting-edge tracking device designed to bring peace of mind to families facing these challenges.
    Luke chats with Erika Wager and Angie Schmitzer about why My Buddy Grad was created and shares more than a single story of losing children who are not known runners....mostly he throws Susie under the bus.

    Plant-Based Surprise: Meat Lovers' Reactions to plant-based food and Vegans for the win!

    Plant-Based Surprise: Meat Lovers' Reactions to plant-based food and Vegans for the win!

    We did an interview with the founders of Why Meat Co who said their plant-based pies and sausage rolls are so good nobody would bat an eyelid if you served them up at parties. They said that carnivore men who were hardcore about their pies and sausage rolls couldn't tell the difference. I am a cynical carnivore and raised my three boys in my carnivore ways. Here is the blind taste test and reveal. Enjoy boutique-quality plant-based party pies and sausage-rolls from The Why Meat Company, available in Queensland & Victoria Woolworths Top Shelf Frozen Party Food Section or learn more at program sponsor whymeatcompany.com.au #woolworths #vegan #vegetarian #partyfoodideas #inclusivefoodoptions #lukeandsusie
