          Performance Red Full View Mirrored Safety Eye Wear
          A lot of guys at work ask us where we got these great full-view, safety sun glasses (see photo attached). The Performance lenses are both scratch and impact resistant while also providing UV protection. The temple ends are pre-drilled to attach neck straps if desired (see photo); and the integrated nose bridge has soft rubbery supports (see other photo) for long term comfortable use. The wrap around design helps keep grass and leaf debris from around my eyes when on my riding lawn mower.
          I like wearing these, especially with the added eye safety component they offer. We also tend to wear them when eye safety is not a factor.

          Forget pulling still-damp loads from the dryer LG's ultra large capacity dryer uses the moisture-sensing technology of Sensor Dry to help ensure even large loads are always dry at the end of the cycle. Plus, the Aluminized Alloy Steel Drum has toughness and an attractive finish that will last for years. And, stay ahead of the cycle and access key LG dryer features remotely with SmartThinQ technology. Color: Graphite Steel.

          LG Electronics 7.4 cu. ft. Graphite Steel Gas Dryer with Round Door
          The overall effect of these beautiful graphite steel finish appliances in our old basement laundry is stunning to say the least (see photo attached). The drying performance is first class and very quiet. The only issue we had was converting the gas dryer to propane. The store did not carry the conversion kit, but gave us the number to Home Depot’s Appliance Part facility.

          The overall effect of these beautiful graphite steel finish appliances in our old basement laundry is stunning to say the least (see photo attached). The drying performance is first class and very quiet. The only issue we had was converting the gas dryer to propane. The store did not carry the conversion kit, but gave us the number to Home Depot’s Appliance Part facility.
          We called them toll free and providing the model and serial numbers quickly placed the propane conversion kit in the cycle for a next day delivery. The next day the kit did in fact arrive (see photo attached). But in order to install it, the top and front of the dryer need to be removed; really not that difficult with the instructions included with the kit. But the two screws necessary to remove and exchange the gas nozzles were too tight to loosen in their cramped spot, so the drum support bracket also had to be loosened and the drum lifted a bit in order to address the tight screws (see photos of nozzle location indicated by red circles). Shown in the photos is with the Propane nozzle installed. I strongly advise employing a technician from your gas company/supplier for this task.
          The Owner’s Manual has a recommended test run that insures the install is correct. And that we did successfully. This dryer’s door is reversible, but with the washer’s door not, we positioned them with the dryer on the left as shown in the attached photo for easily loading the dryer with washed cloths. I will note here that the cloths from the washer after the spin cycle are not wet at all. They are just barely damp from the strong washer spinning action.
          We also considered stacking the dryer on top the washer after seeing it possible and the necessary kit illustrated in the owner’s manual. However, contacting the same appliance parts source as the day before was not as successful this time. So if stacking is in your plan, arrange for it at the time of appliance purchase so the installer can do it.

          LG Electronics 4.5 cu.ft. Graphite Steel Front Load Washer with Coldwash Technology and Wi-Fi Connectivity
          Very impressed with this washer’s performance so far; quiet and vibration free. Washing and rinsing (see photo) are very effective as the spinning action continually extracts water through the rinse cycle. The only issue we had was that the door was not reversible. This caused us to locate the dryer next to the deep sink (where the old dry had been for 15 years). So the washer moved to the left of the dryer (see photo attached with doors open) with the water supplies and drain hose running behind the dryer. This required a couple of minor pluming fixes.

So the washer moved to the left of the dryer (see photo attached with doors open) with the water supplies and drain hose running behind the dryer. This required a couple of minor pluming fixes.
          First fix was adding an extension to the LG’s drain hose to reach the old deep sink. I found that a short piece of ¾” Copper pipe fit snugly into the LG’s end nozzle. Then I found a “universal” drain hose extender at Home Depot that also fit the ¾” pipe (see photo attached). Then based on the advice of their plumbing department guy, I added hose clamps as seen in the aforementioned photo. Second fix was extending the reach of the water supply hoses with elbows at the faucet ends that gave me the extra length I needed without staining the hoses. I did not use the black rubber hose set that came with the washer, but instead used the heavier duty stainless steel wrapped pair as seen in the previous photo that I also had gotten from Home Depot.
          The overall effect of these beautiful graphite steel finish appliances in our old basement laundry is stunning to say the least (see photo attached).

          KB INDUSTRIES Fire Stump
          The KB Fire Stump simply works as advertised. Attached is a photo of our initial fire preparation. As you can see, the plan was to just place the Fire Stump on our slate pavers and light it up. However, as this fire progressed, the slate underneath started to delaminate with very loud cracking sounds, and as this was very unnerving, we stopped adding wood and let the fire burn down.
          So in the second photo, you can see a second fire well underway. But also notice the charcoal grate we purchased to place under the Fire Stump and the added bricks to hold the grate a few inches above the slate pavers. This better illustrates how the vertical orientation of the fire

But also notice the charcoal grate we purchased to place under the Fire Stump and the added bricks to hold the grate a few inches above the slate pavers. This better illustrates how the vertical orientation of the fire wood promotes a nice fire and obviously works great for the intended purpose. I did however; need to add more kindling as the fire progressed until the larger verticals were burning well enough on their own. I then added more verticals during the evening as the instructions advised. In addition, I sensed that the grate we placed under the Fire Stump made for a better fire because of the improved draft from underneath the fire itself.
          The spaces between the bricks raising the grate were also useful for inserting wadded-up newspaper for fire starting purposes. This made for easier fire starting and ignition of the kindling.

          Home Decorators Collection 8 inch Aged Bronze LED Mini Pendant
          I replaced an old pull-chain over sink light bulb with this new mini pendant. So I used a new ceiling box and then ran new electric supply lines to a new conventional wall switch. In the attached photo, you can see the supplied pendant mounting bracket attached to the new ceiling box. I did this before mounting the box to the ceiling to ensure I had the two pendant screws aligned correctly with their holes through the pendant base. I did not need the two longer screws shown in the background as the new box came with the short screws as illustrated.

          The pendant’s 15-Watt LED bulb provides more than enough light over the sink area and the adjacent washer machine, seemingly more than the old 23-Watt florescent did because of the LED’s more directional nature and domed lens cover. This little project turned out very well and the new pendant looks and works great.
