neon-mfg-signs

Before I got married, I found some pieces of neon light tubes and a power supply at a local "junk" shop, and I assembled them into a really beautiful, abstract art piece for my living room.  When I got married, I realized this huge light sculpture above my fireplace didn't exactly mesh with our new furniture, [...]

I'm a big fan of the Dropcam and have reviewed and used every model since it first came on the market five years ago. In that same time period, I've reviewed many other home security cameras like the FLIR FX which is the latest camera I've had the opportunity to try. I tend to compare [...]

Motion sensors are great in concept - illuminating your property when they sense nearby motion - but they can lack in execution.  Normal motion sensors light up only a relatively small area around the light when they detect motion.  This isn't a problem when the motion is from an animal, but could allow a more [...]

We spend a lot more time in our basement than we do the main floor of the house, so it's often difficult to know when someone comes to the front door if we can't hear them knocking. Sometimes they don't even knock because they press the doorbell which has had a dead battery for over [...]

Do you dedicate one cutting board for meat and another for veggies so you don't have to worry about cross-contamination?  I do, but since both my boards look alike except for a small color ring, I have to take a second look to be sure I'm grabbing the correct one.  With the Color-Coded Cutting Mats, [...]
