          This seems to be a good tape that is slightly thicker than my regular duct tape and supposedly can be used in all types of weather and is waterproof once it’s bonded with your ntended surface. Although it states it works in cold weather,I would warm it up before use by leaving in a heated room to maximize adhesion. I tried it on several surfaces outside and it does stick, but like almost any tape used in the cold,you can peel it off especially on very smooth surfaces. It needs to be rubbed until there is a good bond and then it seems to adhere. I did try getting it wet and the water ran off with no problem but can’t tell how well it would work in extreme wet weather. Overall it’s a good tape Read More

          Pros: stronger than reg duct tape, waterproof, can be used in most weather conditions

          I really like Tramontina products and this 5qt stainless steel Dutch oven will be the workhorse of the kitchen for almost every cooking task. I like having several different types of materials for pots and pans and stainless works great. You can boil,bake,stew,fry and roast in this pot. Use low to medium-high for cooking because high temps will cause things to burn and stick and smoke. It’s oven safe up to 500’ and will get hot so use mitts to safely handle. Clean up is easy and although you can use a dishwasher it’s best to hand wash and use soap and water and if there are persistent stains or stucks use Barkeepers Friend for all your cleaning because it works really well.
          Pros: 18/10 stainless, use in oven up to 500’, easy cleanup

          The Tramontina Gourmet Hard Anodized 5 Qt. Covered Dutch Oven is harder than other conventional cookware. Hard anodization is a manufacturing process that treats the aluminum to make it harder and more durable. The result is a solid coating distinguished by its dark gray color. This process creates a surface typically harder than other conventional cookware. Made from heavy-gauge hard anodized aluminum construction in a beautiful, gray finish has superior durability and provides even heat distribution. Part of the Tramontina GOURMET collection, a series of timeless products crafted especially for the cooking enthusiast.

          Appearance wise this is a nice looking solar pathway lights on hooks. It gives off 5 lumens of white light which is adequate for just accent lighting. The lantern itself has glass inserts but is made of plastic and I wish it was reversed because plastic always breaks easier than metal but the in ground hooks are metal. It’s simple assembly and installation and for accent lighting it does do its job. It comes with solar batteries and is in a bronze finish with S scroll designs on 3 sides of each lantern. Overall it does look nice and shines a solar led light where you need it without the hassle of a hard wired landscape lights.
          Pros: Easy to Assemble, Nice Design
          Cons: plastic housing vs metal

          Camera security is becoming easier and better where it’s literally plug and play, only having to download an app,connecting to a WiFi network, and installing in your chosen location. This tiny HD smart 1080p camera by NexHT is a great example of simple but effective set up and viewing. There is approx 5 pieces to work with and first choose how you need this to be installed-tabletop,wall mounted or ceiling. You just download the app(scan QR code to get for iOS or Android)set up an account and connect to WiFi. You can customize settings in app for everything from notifications to camera views.

It comes with 1 month free cloud service to view past clips but you can get your own micro SD card and it will auto format it. It has good features like night vision,2wayaudio,multi user viewing,motion detection and alerts and a good viewing angle. This is a stationary camera that does not move or turn on its own. The 2way talking is loud enough to clearly hear a conversation and didn’t sound distorted imho. Overall this is a good little security cam that sets up easy and gives good streaming video(this is mostly dependent on your WiFi signal and strength and your rate of mbps). Read Less
          Pros: Compact, Motion-Activated, simple setup, good quality stream, customize settings
          Cons: does not swivel or move

          I would not expose this animated character to heavy rains,winds or snow. It can be outside on a clear night or on a covered porch or structure otherwise the clothing and electrical/mechanical parts may malfunction. It does come apart and stores easily in a box or bin(I kept the box it came in to use as storage for after season).

          I’ve noticed when playing with the colors that the red, green, or yellow color combinations the white led is completely off. In the blue, pink, or light blue the white led is on which drowns out the blue. Is this what you other owners experience or is mine faulty?

          October 15, 2019
          Answer: 
          Is it possible that you hit the ‘mode’ button on the remote because there are settings that allow the white led to be on with color led lights.If you hit the mode button 2 or 3 times it should scroll back to the solid color and stay that way even if you turn it off and then on again. Hope this helps...
