          My front side yard gets BEAT up with the sun, so it's important to me to find a grass seed made for sunny locations. In the past, I've had trouble doing that as many seed products state "sunny" but can actually be used in a variety of sun level locations, resulting in not such great grass.
          This seed is specifically for "Sunny" locations and thus far it's proving to be effective for that area. Granted, I have only started growing it in that sunny location in a test area. I did this to be sure it does well there before I committed it to the whole location. I had pine trees taken out in this area of my yard and need to replant that entire yard portion.

          This seed is specifically for "Sunny" locations and thus far it's proving to be effective for that area. Granted, I have only started growing it in that sunny location in a test area. I did this to be sure it does well there before I committed it to the whole location. I had pine trees taken out in this area of my yard and need to replant that entire yard portion. As you can see from the pictures I've provided, the grass is germinating nicely, looking very healthy without a lot of effort on my part. To test the seed, I put down a small amount of garden soil, sprinkled the seed on top, put a bit more soil very lightly over the seed and tried to be diligent about watering (hence my comment about "without a lot of effort"). I did water the seed at least once a day but felt I should be doing it twice a day due to the "sunny" location. In spite of my lack of consistent watering diligence the seed began to germinate in 4 days! The picture I have of the grass germinating shows it after 6 days. Do not be confused by the taller grass in the picture-that's existing grass coming up. But you can defintely see the germinating grass in the picture. Also, don't be put off by the spots where there is no germination. We had a heavy rain one night and some of the seed and dirt washed down over my wall.
          The bag claims this seed to be "uncoated". I didn't know what that meant until I read through the bag. In effect it means you get more seed per pound as compared to coated seed.

          This personal evaporative air cooler uses the power of a small amount of water to effectively and efficiently cool you.
          When comparing this unit to a regular small tabletop fan, I found this preferable for a couple of reasons. First, it's much more effective than a fan since a fan only blows around the air that's already in a room. So if it's hot air in a room, that's what gets blown around.
          Second, the air blown is gentle. I can have this unit on my desk and all the papers on my desk do not get blown around like they do with the fan I use to use.
          This unit is easy to fill with water (even comes with a funnel inside to help with filling).

          This unit is easy to fill with water (even comes with a funnel inside to help with filling).
          It has 4 speeds that are controlled by pushing a button on the top, with a light indicating the level of speed. And it has a beautiful blue light which you can turn on or off, again with the button on the top--you hold the button down a bit longer to control the on/off of the light.
          Initially, my one criticism was that I needed to plug it into my laptop or computer to use it, which restricted where I could place it. Until, I figured out I could plug it into my phone's power bank (as shown in my last picture). This made it portable to be placed wherever I wanted or needed it.

          This is an upscale air fryer oven that has more applications than a standard air fyer. It has the capability of being a dehydrater as well as the ability to cook a whole chicken using the included rotisserie skewer and forks.
          It comes with a drip tray, three mesh shelves, a rolling cage and the rotisserie and forks.
          I have used it to cook frozen sweet potatoes, homemade french fries and brocolli. I was impressed with the results of each of these foods. The sweet potatoes I just put in the rolling basket straight from the freezer without adding anything.

          I have used it to cook frozen sweet potatoes, homemade french fries and brocolli. I was impressed with the results of each of these foods. The sweet potatoes I just put in the rolling basket straight from the freezer without adding anything. The homemade fries as well as the brocolli I tossed with a little olive oil, salt and garlic powder. I did the brocolli dish twice--once cooking on the mesh shelf and once in the rolling basket. All in all I preferred cooking the foods in the rolling basket. I feel they cooked more evenly without concern of turning the food over.
          The design is nice. Cleaning the interior is easy. Cleaning the basket and shelves in not that easy, just by the nature of the mesh. The drip tray was easy to clean. All the accessories can be cleaned in the dishwasher.
          The oven is large, so it's able to cook a good amount of food at one time. But this also creates an issue when storing the unit. It's a bit big to leave out on a kitchen counter, unless you have a large kkitchen with a lot of counter space. Also, not all the accessories can be stored inside the unit at one time, so you need to store some of them elsewhere.
          Although use of the oven is pretty intuitive I was disappointed by the owners manual. There are many presets on the display but the manual doesn't explain them. The manual refers to a "Frying Basket" but there is no frying basket, unless they are using basket and cage synonymously. There's also a reference to a "Stirring Arm". Apparently, I don't have that either as I have no idea what accessory that is.
          I went to the company's website as listed on the manual, to see if these accessories were available to see (to identify) and possibly purchase, but I found no accessories, nor was I able to find my mode (there were 6 other models listed). They do have a "recipe" section on the website that looks great and will assist in getting a lot of use from the oven.
          Because of the confusion of accessories in the manual, lack of presets information and not finding this model on the website, I almost deducted one star from my rating, but the performance and results were so good with the foods I tried I overlooked those weaknesses.
          The unit did come with a recipe book which has some great looking recipes. I appreciate included recipe books with products like these.
          I have include 3 pictures with captions that explain the photos.

          They are the perfect size for dinner bowls. By dinner bowls, I mean exactly that---think of the use of these substituting a dinner plate. These bowls are perfect for individual dinner portions of pasta dishes, or maybe stew, or a dinner soup--even a dinner salad--not a side salad, a full serving meal (think steak salad).
          But in addition to being perfect for serving individual portions of those kinds of meals, these bowls will also work for side servings as my photo shows. My photos show 6 servings of brocolli in one of these bowls.

          What an elegant and practical serving bowl. I believe it would fit in any tabletop decor.
          Pleasantly surprising is that this bowl is made in England.
          It has a very attractive neutral off white glaze overall with a very subtle tan ring around the outside rim.
          The size would be appropriate for holding 6 servings.
          When I reviewed the description of this bowl I saw that it's dishwasher, oven, microwave and freezer proof. I can verify that it's dishwasher and microwave proof but I haven't had the opportunity to try freezer or oven yet. But the bottom of the bowl does not have this information on it, only that it's made in England.

          I don't believe the humidity level of an area will effect the preformance of this unit. It will comtinue to blow water cooled air, but unlike an air conditioning unit, this unit does not take moisture out of the air.

          Answer: 
          Since it needs to be placed on a smooth, flat, horizontal surface and shouldn't be moved due to the chance of water leakage I would say no, this isn't practical for use in a car. Also, it's powered via a USB plu. Not all cars have that feature.
