My "slippers" for in the house are similar looking Crocs. They can easily be used as outdoor shoes.

Yeah, I'm talkin' SLIPPERS. I just can't! I'm not sure if it's some sort of protest to the new policy or what but just NO.

I watched a comparison video putting all of the Dyson cordless against each other and the V8 Animal still won.


P.S. got that ice cream scoop you recommended.

Well I agree but the wife hates when I bend spoons in half. Maybe if I actually had enough patience to wait for it to thaw I wouldn't need one.

Needed something simple to set up to check on garage door when Iím traveling. Wife has left it open on occasion plus we have a new cleaning lady who seems fully capable of doing the same thing. I am sure there are better systems, but these do what I need, were on sale and super easy to set up.

I love my garage cam. I check it quite often when I suddenly can't recall if I closed the door or not. I'll be a 1/4 mile down the street and a nagging doubt will hit me, so I just pop up the app on my phone and check the door.

My wife had an irritating habit of leaving the garage door open when I was on a trip. That could have ended up being fairly..... expensive since I have a lot of spendy toys there.

This was the solution, as I have a Chamberlain opener: https:https://www.walmart.com/ip/CHAMBERLA...ll&athena=true

It works a treat-- I put it in the bedroom, and if the garage is open, you get a red light and an occasional "chirp". Push the button, and it closes and the light turns green.

Problem solved.

Additionally, the Chamberlain opener has an iPhone app that you can look at to see (and open/close) the garage door position.

Basically everything in the photo besides the surface book running the whole show, obviously you can tell the wife had her fair share of influence even though it was my work fronting the bill. It had to be "cute" if it was going in a public space. Plan to repaint the room shortly and add more furniture, rug, etc. Cooper decided he wanted in the pic as well.
