They thought they would retire aboard a sailboat, funding that dream with equity from their threebedroom house. But then the housing bubble burst and their home’s value tumbled.

The novelty factor with the Alter Ego I was sent is its glow in the dark capability. And it really does glow, especially if you leave it in the light for a few minutes.
