          This LED ceiling light fixture offers a sleek, modern design. The solid white shade diffuses the light evenly, you won't see any dark spots or shadows. The use of this matte black finish and the sophistication of this style has taken hold in today's home interior light fixtures. This ceiling flushmount is designed to be maintenance free and save money. The LED light engine produces the light of (5) 75-Watt light bulbs using only 56-Watt of electricity, and there are no bulbs to replace. These flush mounted ceiling lights are built from steel to last for years to come; they are backed by a 3 year limited manufacturer's warranty. These light fixtures install easily, and the LEDs last for 34 years at 4 hours per day.

          Very satisfied with the Envirolite LED flush mount light. I am finishing off my basement and with a 7 foot high ceiling I am limited when it comes to lighting. Mainly, I am relying on recessed lighting, but there are certain areas where my home's plumbing make installing the cans impossible. With this in mind, I was happy to find this light. It's low profile is enabling me to install the light without interfering the plumbing. (This saved me a lot of money since I didn't need to move any plumbing.) I am also very happy with the way it looks and the LED functionality.
          Pros: Eco-Friendly, Functional, Good Size & Weight, Looks Great, Nice Design, Stylish, Unique, Very Bright

          Invincibelle Mini Mauvette from Proven Winners has deep pink-mauve flowers that bloom from summer through fall on strong stems. Its dwarf habit makes it perfect for any landscape, and it can handle cold down to USDA Hardiness Zone 3. Mini Mauvette prefers full sun, but in hot climates afternoon shade is beneficial. Prune in early spring, just as new growth begins to emerge on the stems. This hydrangea is native to North America.

          I ordered this hydrangea online, which was the first time I ordered a live plant and had it shipped to my home. After it arrived, I was happy to see that the packaging did a great job at protecting the plant from damage. I had ordered two hydrangea, one was a gallon size and this one which was 4.5 qt. size. The gallon size was considerably larger than this one (see pics). I love hydrangeas and look forward to seeing these plants grow and bloom over the years to come.
          Pros: Good Shape

          Great idea! When I'd start fires in my fire pit I always understood the value of creating a "chimney effect" to produce a good fire. What I did was to place logs in a horizontal arrangement in order to get a good burn going. Now, this Fire Stumper makes it so much easier to get a great fire going. I place kindling and a fire starter in the middle of the stumper and then stand logs vertically against the stumper. It works great and produces a nice, tall fire which helps release the smoke above us.
          Pros: Easy to Use, Nice Design

          Invincibelle Limetta from Proven Winners blooms in early summer with spheres of lime green, which lighten to a soft green-white before turning jade green for the rest of the season. The flowers rebloom on strong stems from summer through fall, and bloom even in cold climates. Limetta prefers full sun, but in hot climates afternoon shade is beneficial. Prune in early spring, just as new growth begins to emerge on the stems. Invincibelle Limetta is native to North America.

          Hydrangea has been a favorite of my family for over 100 years. I have pictures of my mother from the 1920's with hydrangeas planted by my grandparents in the background. Her love of the these plants rubbed off on me and my children. My daughter has over 50 hydrangea on her property (see photo). These low maintenance plants are great and do not need a lot of sunlight. I would like to suggest that you start or continue a family tradition by planting some sort of flowering plants with your family - we love it.

          Very high quality impact socket set which I expect will last me forever. Their six point design pretty much guarantees that they will never strip any of my nuts or bolts. The universal joint aspect of these sockets provided me with the ability to reach those "hard to reach" spots. Not just for automotive use - recently, while adding additional deck space to an existing deck I needed to put some lag bolts into a very tight area. Using these sockets, I was able to quickly sink the lag bolts and finish the job.
          Pros: Accurate, Durable, Long-Lasting, Strong
