          Camera technology keeps getting better and smaller and this Kasa Spot cam is a great example. I have been using Kasa products for several years now and they provide good cam viewing and smart devices like plugs. The set up on Kasa is super simple,just plug in your device,download the app and follow the prompts. The app is great because it enables you to control your devices via your smartphone. I keep an eye on my dogs with the cams as well as the house and it gives me peace of mind. Security does not have to cost a bundle and as long as your internet speed is adequate and you have a good WiFi signal you shouldn’t have problems. I am not fussy and just want a clear picture of what’s going on Read More

I am not fussy and just want a clear picture of what’s going on and the Kasa cams work in my personal experience. You can keep adding Kasa products very easy by just opening the app and following the prompts and you will see all your devices on one page. It has night vision for low or no light,there is two way talk,records and playback in 1080HD and even works with Alexa and Google assistant. It’s also very tiny only being @31/2 inches tall with stand and can also be wall mounted. There are other settings like activity zones,notifications etc that you can control. No reason nowadays to not have a few around your home inside and out to keep home and family safe and secure. Read Less
          Pros: Compact, Easy Installation, 1080hd, night vision, 2 way talk

          I actually used this mixture in the spring when I was overseeding the yard,and it has proven to be a winner in my book. There is no secret to a healthy lawn except good products, care and maintenance and some water. I like this mixture because it’s just pure grass seed with no fillers and you get a generous 7lbs. So @1750sqft for new lawns and 3500sqft. for overseeding. Although I love a green lawn,I don’t particularly like a perfect ‘Stepford Wives’ grass carpet,instead I mix in mini clover seed and let the native grass mix in.

          Since we live in a small home,every bit of space is valuable and this over the door ironing board is a great way to multitask a door. Made of metal and using 2 removable clip hangers that lock into place and hang on a door,it allows the back/front of a door to be used as a work space. It’s not that big so you can even make it portable and take on vacay,college or travels. You just insert clips into holes,hang over door and lightly squeeze right lower bar that sticks out and lower the board. There are 2 plastic feet that you turn towards the door so it won’t scratch surfaces.It’s better to close door or use a door stop to steady and hold door in place to prevent shaking.

          We have 4 trees in our front yard that was planted by the previous owner. The two peach trees are mature (we actually got peaches last year.) A Cherry Tree (has not fruited yet) and an apple tree that was brought back form the dead.

          I bought the Scotts 4 step program and Step 2 says not to have it come in contact with fruit trees or vegetables. Does it leech into the ground? I presently have a broadcast spreader

          Answer: 
          I personally would not use it around the fruit trees since you are consuming the fruit. I only use it on our front yard where our dogs and bare feet don’t generally come in contact with it. I believe it does leech into the soil so to be safe,I would use an eco friendly/‘natural’ fertilizer that is safe for human consumption. Hope this helps.....
