Dutch Crafters

If there is one thing the Amish are known for (besides the whole “living without modern technology” thing), it’s their impeccable craftsmanship. Dutch Crafters, a Florida-based company, sources a variety of items from the Amish, including our favorite, the Poly Fan-Back Adirondack Chair. Adirondacks are timeless and the perfect addition to any backyard, patio, deck, or dock. The “poly” stands for “high density polyethylene” which means not only are these chairs 100% made in the USA, they are created from recycled materials.



Once you get your Amish Adirondack chairs set up, you’ll need a firepit to gather around. Modfire specializes in unique outdoor fireplaces that run on natural gas, wood, or propane, depending on the model. Designed and made at their warehouse studio in Phoenix, Arizona, Modfire’s products are a labor of love for owners Brandon Williams and Marty Young, who employ several artisans to hand-make each piece.

Looking for a reliable way to watch UFC fights online? In the past, regional broadcasting regulations presented challenges for sports enthusiasts who wanted to stream live events without a cable subscription. Fortunately, the landscape has changed, with sports broadcasters embracing streaming and making live programming more accessible than ever. ESPN, the official broadcaster for UFC in the U.S., responded to this trend by launching ESPN+ in 2018. With ESPN+, you can now easily enjoy UFC fights and pay-per-views on your PC, mobile device, smart TV, or gaming console. We've got a full guide on how to watch UFC fights online from anywhere, along with a schedule of upcoming fights, to make sure you don't miss a single UFC live stream.

ESPN+ delivers a cornucopia of sports content, including MMA and boxing, to almost any modern streaming device. That said, you've got some other options that are also worth mentioning. But due to the very tight relationship between ESPN and the Ultimate Fighting Championship, you'll still need to sign up for ESPN+ in order to live stream UFC pay-per-view events.

The 11 Robert Redford movies every fan should watch
Is your favorite Redford film on the list?
Robert Redford in All the President's Men answering the telephone.

Robert Redford is one of those classic movie stars who disarmed you with his incredible looks, and then mesmerized you with his on-screen talent. He's not an actor's actor like Robert De Niro, but he's shown for decades what type of performer he is. Redford's charm and natural charisma have made him compelling in a wide variety of roles, and they've also occasionally been weaponized against his audience.
Not every role in Redford's decades-long career has been a roaring success. For every All the President's Men there's a stinker like Havana. In general, though, Redford has built a remarkable body of work, and if he never acts in front of a camera again, he can be proud of what he's accomplished.
