          Show Home is an appropriate name since these lights can be used all year! Nearly unlimited color combinations and light effects. Not just for Christmas.
          If the thickness of the wires are any indication of quality these are top notch. Twice as thick as the cheaper lights I have owned. The light covers are textured and very thick. They are compression fit to the socket.
          The app works very well. It takes about 15 seconds to connect after opening the app. Afterwards the changes are instant. Worked up to about 50 feet away.

          The app works very well. It takes about 15 seconds to connect after opening the app. Afterwards the changes are instant. Worked up to about 50 feet away. The layout is easy to use and change up the colors and effects. I spent about 30 minutes just playing with the combinations and going through all the pre-programmed Holidays and effects before I got through them all. the brightness can also be adjusted from dim to bright.
          At first glance the price seems expensive but if you use these year round think about the amount you spend for outdoor bbq lighting or party specific lighting. These can be set to a bright yellow or very light blue to mimic typical string lights costing about $40. The quality appears good enough to be used year round and moved around to different locations of the home or cabin or RV etc. without fear of them breaking.
          The lighted section is 43 feet long. Enough for a 10 x 10 canopy or pergola plus. double it up for a shorter string to get more light in a smaller area. Tons of possibilities.
          Note - the app looks like the picture with the person in red gloves, not like in the video. there isn't a dial in my iphone version. There is an option to create an account or you can use it as a guest.
          My pictures are terrible but gives you an idea of the different colors of blues in the 'winter' setting. The colored lights are too bright and washed out but shows the typical 'Christmas' setting.
          14 colors plus cold white and cool white. 6 Holidays, and what they call Earth, Sun, and Multicolor.
          10 different color effects plus 3 show modes.
          A brightness slider
          option to control each string individually or choose 'all" to synchronize

          If you like the razzle dazzle of chasing lights and blinking randomly this set will be up your ally. There is no way to set the type of effect. it runs through each one automatically. For the price I would have expected the ability to choose the effect.
          When fully staked in the ground each cane sticks 14" above the ground. If you want a little slack they will be 18" apart. Fully stretched they will be 21" apart.
          Quality seems OK. The wires are heavier gauge than others I have seen.
          There is 12 inches from the plug to the first cane and 6 inches from the last cane to the end of the plug so you should have about 18 inches between first and second set of lights.

          I was not able to find out if additional sets connected are all in synch or if each set acts independently. Looking at videos of their other synchro lights I believe each set acts independently. I would like to see an option for a controlling set and then dummy sets that work off the controlling set so everything remains in synch. Read Less
          Pros: Easy to Clean, Easy to Use

          My new best friend. I thought these were only good for trim and crown molding. Of course this is designed for the professional who uses it all day long but is also worth it for the home owner who does many of their own repairs. It will pay for itself when re-installing the trim in my hall and living room vs hiring a contractor. It's $20 a day or $80 a week to rent one in my town. Plus the time driving around to pick it up and drop it off. With this there is no pressure to start and stop around my work schedule.

          I have been using it for all sorts of little projects where I would usually overdo it with screws or big nails. that are much more expensive. With the GenII design this should last your entire life. Also helps when it is just you. One hand to hold the material, the other to nail. Plus it is much faster and cleaner looking.
          The tips store right on the tool which is great. The brads slide in and out easily to change the length.

          easy to use dial to adjust the nail depth.

          Fall is the perfect time to plant grass in the Pacific NW so I grabbed this to try and fix those darker areas where regular grass mix won't last over the winter. It's a really good quality seed mix. It's un-coated so is designed to be covered slightly. I planted on 8/30/19 and the seed started to germinate in 8 days. So far is working as advertised. I also spot seeded where moles have been digging and is coming in nicely there as well. It's 38.5% fairmont chewing fescue which I haven't seen so this hopefully will be the ticket to keeping the grass in these shady places.

          Victor Solar Powered Sonic Spikes offers a poison-free way to drive away moles, gophers. Every 30-seconds, sonic pulses penetrate the soil, emitting a penetrating sound that irritates moles and gophers, which are virtually blind and extremely sensitive to sound and vibrations. This method encourages moles to leave the property and continues to discourage return visits. No batteries are required to operate the waterproof solar spike. A single solar charge will last up to 5-days. The spike is built with a mow-over design and safe to use around pets. Allow 7-days to 14-days before moles and gophers start to move away from the area.

          At this point I am cautiously optimistic. I have not had a mole mound appear in the two weeks since I put the stake in my active area. Previously I had a mole appear 2-3 times a month. My next door neighbor is getting new hills every few days and has not stopped.
          If it works for more than month I will give it to my neighbor to see if it works for him. If it does I will be buying enough to cover all three properties.
          When barely inserted you can clearly here it buzz from about 50 feet away. After I buried it I could hear it about 10 or 15 feet away if it was quiet. It buzzes every 30 seconds.
          I used a broom handle to make a hole and it fit in easily. Lays very flat on the ground. Read More

          I used a broom handle to make a hole and it fit in easily. Lays very flat on the ground. No worries about hitting it with the mower or tripping. You can barely see it with short grass. If your ground is hard just pound in as far as you can. water the ground to soften it. pound it some more. water more. pound more until you get the correct depth.
          Since it is solar powered with a built in rechargeable battery you can essentially set and forget. If you get flooding and if the ground freezes it should be removed during those periods.
          I took off one star because it seems to good to be true that it works so easily. Read Less

          Answer: 
          it floats so should work. If the solar panel is the same as when I purchased it is best suited for southern states with more direct sunlight. Plus the wind will blow it around so most likely will end up on the edge of the lake. Also any wave action will disrupt it. It's not huge so you will barely see it from 100 feet away. The diameter of a 2 acre circle is 333 feet.

          Answer: 
          It’s a separate function. It works pretty well to freshen up wrinkled clothes or something you wore previously And want it feeling clean again. However when you think about how a dryer works the regular dry cycles get steamy because it uses heat to warm the clothes to evaporate the water off the clothes
