          Get out and Hang out. The Swurfer Kick Stand Up Tree Swing is a colorful addition to the Swurfer family made of durable plastic strong enough to hold someone up to 150 lbs. Engineered to provide more power, stability and range of motion as you soar through the air. You control the level of fun. Hold onto the handles and calmly sway side to side or use your legs to power higher and surf the air. Hang out in your backyard or branch out and take your Swurfer Kick with you on your next hiking, camping, picnic or road trip. Hang from some sweet soar spots. Get on board and surf the air. The Swurfer Kick Stand Up Tree Swing is also great for improving core body strength, balance and toning leg and arm muscles; It's so much fun, you won't even realize what a workout you're getting.

          I always like to have activities to do when the grandkids come over so this Swurfer Kick Stand Up Swing seemed like a fun twist on a normal swing. The Swurfer swing can be used standing up like a surf board but you could also sit on it like a regular swing. The standard kit comes with the Swurfer board which is rated up to 150 pounds, two handles to attach to the rope, and enough rope to hang the swing from a height of ten feet. There are optional kits you can buy to attach it to higher trees but since the grandkids are still young, I’ll stick with the included rope for now. The Swurfer can be attached to a tree or swing set but in my opinion, a swing set might be a bit too low for this type Read More

The Swurfer can be attached to a tree or swing set but in my opinion, a swing set might be a bit too low for this type of swing. I attached the Swurfer to a tree branch. Installation was fairly quick and simple. If you intend to attach it to a higher branch, the installation would be more challenging. I watched a Swurfer video and in the one I watched, none of the kids were wearing helmets but I think it would be an added safety measure if they did (especially if you hang it from a higher branch). The board seems to be sturdy and well-made and I do not have any concerns about it breaking. So far, the grandkids are really enjoying this swing and I think it’s a great option to get them outside and active. I would definitely recommend this swing. Read Less

          Strength and durability make Razor-Back tools the choice of professionals. This Cotton Hoe got its name based on its original usage in Cotton fields. Today, this hoe is a versatile garden tool which can be used for chopping or making furrows for planting. It's also a great way to keep your garden weed-free with no harsh chemicals.

          I recently moved to a home with five acres of property so I often find myself needing gardening/construction tools to do work around the property. I got this cotton hoe just in time to help me with a search for some property line markers. The land was surveyed many years ago so I have found that the markers are sometimes buried. I took the hoe out to the area I believed the marker was and got to work. The soil in the area is fairly hard and rocky but this hoe made quick work of loosening up the dirt. The handle on the hoe is a 60 inch wooden handle and held up well when I was working with it. I think for a shovel, I would prefer a handle made of another material but for the hoe, the wood Read More

          Post-dinner party cleanup. Let your LG dishwasher do the heavy lifting. LG QuadWash provides maximum cleaning coverage making it easier than ever to get your dishes clean and with TrueSteam technology you get up to 60% less water spots. The 3rd rack gives you more space to fit everything from long flatware to oversized cooking utensils.

          I got this dishwasher to replace an old one that was not quite cutting it anymore. I’ve learned that dishwashers have come a long way and have many different features. This dishwasher has the controls on the top of the door so the front has a very nice, clean look. The finish on the door is “black stainless steel” which I think is a really nice look. There are many different cycles you can use but I tend to use just a normal cycle which seems to work fine. There is also a steam setting to help eliminate spotting. This dishwasher is wifi enabled so you can monitor it from an app. My experience with connected appliances has not been great so I’m unlikely to ever find myself using that feature. Read More

I have only had this dishwasher for a short period of time but so far it seems to do an excellent job cleaning the dishes. I’m very happy with the look and performance of this dishwasher and I would definitely recommend it. Read Less

          I recently moved onto a property with five acres of land and I’m interested in finding the property line markers. My 100 foot measuring tape was not up to the task so I ordered this Milwaukee 330 foot fiberglass measuring tape. Although some of the property lines are longer than 330 feet, it is much easier to measure accurately than with the 100 foot tape. This measuring tape has Imperial measurements (to the 1/8 of an inch) on one side and Metric measurements (to the millimeter) on the other side and they are both easy to read. The tape has a large metal loop at the end so you can hook it on to a stationary object (like my property markers) and it feeds out smoothly. When you go to retract Read More

When you go to retract the tape, it retracts quickly and smoothly. The retraction mechanism is geared (3 to 1) so retrieving the tape is very simple. As the tape is wound up, it passes through the “Grime Guard Blade Wiper” which cleans dirt off as the tape is wound onto the reel. This is an excellent measuring tape and I would definitely recommend it. Read Less

          This review is for the GE 30 in. 5.0 cu. ft. Single Electric Wall Oven with Self-Cleaning Convection in Stainless Steel. I got this oven to use in a second “kitchen” area downstairs in my home. When we purchased our new home, one of the wish list items was a double oven which this home did not have. There was also no room in the main kitchen to add a second oven so we compromised and converted part of our “mud room” to a second kitchen. Installation of this oven requires hard wiring it to 240 volt service. Although the Home Depot website says it is a “plug in” oven, that is not accurate and it needs to be hardwired.

When I unboxed the oven, I was very pleased with the “clean” look on the front. I’ve included photos of the oven prior to installation but unfortunately I’m away from home and don’t have any post-installation but it is an excellent looking oven. The oven is large and will fit a full size cookie sheet which is another plus for me. When you turn the oven on, it seems to heat up in a reasonable time. There are a variety of settings, including convection, but I tend to find myself only using a regular bake setting or broil setting. I’m sure a more experienced cook might find the other settings useful. There is also a self-clean/steam clean setting but I have not had to use that yet. There is also a temperature probe which I will find useful when cooking roasts. This oven is also wi-fi connectable to allow you use some oven functions via wi-fi but I have not yet set that up. I have had other appliances that were wi-fi connected and never found them particularly useful but I will give it a try. The racks in the oven move smoothly even when they have some weight on them. I have only had this oven a few days so I can’t judge it’s longevity but so far it seems like an excellent oven and I would definitely recommend it. Read Less

          Dynamically detailed, you will not find a better moderately sized globe than this. A wide, round, rose gold chrome base supports the piece, finished in Black/Rose Gold geographic map. Features a rose gold finished metal meridian. The globe's map surface is up-to-date and features precise country boundaries. Earths topography is also accurately rendered in a Rose Gold color and the Ocean is colored in Black. A soft LED light is built into the design, illuminating the globe from within. No Assembly Required.
           

          Does this Globe use batteries or a wall plug and what is the purpose of the USB port?
