Govee RGBICWW LED smart outdoor flood lights review

REVIEW – Last year we put up our holiday lights on Halloween and took them down on Valentine’s Day. Our 5-year-old projector switches from ghosts to snowflakes to dots.

SnapFresh Cordless Leaf Blower review – a handy, lightweight wind-maker

REVIEW – The SnapFresh BBT-ZE20BW leaf blower is the lightest blower I’ve tried. The blowing power and working time from a single charge did not disappoint. Heavier hand-held blowers can be fatiguing either from their weight, the blow-back resistance, or both. The SnapFresh was pleasant to use in that it was not tiring to use.  …

NEWS – Like a lot of preteens, my boys stopped wearing winter coats around the time they hit middle school. Didn’t matter how cold it got, a hooded sweatshirt was the best they would agree to. Last year, in my motherly angst, I dropped about $100 on a big-name workwear hoodie for one of them …

BIBURY Multi-tool Axe review – I bet your multi-tool can’t chop and hammer like this one!

REVIEW – Thus far I have been very successful at remodeling my basement and one specific reason is that I am a guy who believes in having just about every relevant tool and a few that may not be relevant but can be invaluable when trying to do something slightly “irregular” or outside of the …
