Alexa Enabled Orbi Voice Harmon Kardon Speaker With WiFi Range Extender

Get your Orbi Voice system today!

Orbi Voice is the best way to get Alexa enabled music at your command while extending your WiFi throughout your home. Heck, you could probably extend the WiFi all the way to your neighbor’s house with this system.

The price is what you would expect to pay for a WiFi extender, but you get Harmon Kardon sound and Alexa control of your music and anything else you want to control… I happen to like being the boss and ordering my house to do my bidding, and I am sure you will, too!

Need A Solid Driveway? Give Geo Grid A Shot!

Need A Solid Driveway? Give Geo Grid A Shot!

I tried to park in my yard last winter when the snow plows needed access to the street. While the ground was hard, no problem. But once the spring thaw hit, the yard got messed up pretty bad. So we decided to get a quote for a concrete driveway. After I was revived from the sticker shock, I decided to look for an alternative.

Geo Grid is what I found.

So I am starting this project tomorrow, since I have everything arriving tomorrow and it is all going to be stacked in front of my garage. I will be documenting this on here so you can see how easy it is (even for someone who does not exactly wield a hammer or shovel on a regular basis).

Stay tuned!

Alkaline Water Ionizer Series: (2) What To Look For?

As I mentioned in my previous article, I know that I want one of these for our home. The science behind the health benefits is overwhelmingly positive (that’s an Ion pun…). In fact, some of the things I want mine for is to help control my acid reflux and to add a lot of antioxidant power to my daily water intake.

But what are we supposed to look for in an Alkaline Water Ionizer?

  1. The ionizer itself should be easy to install. The under the sink models are not as easy to install as the countertop ones, since you usually only need to attach it to one of your faucets and plug the unit in and you are ready to use it.
  2. The unit should be easy to clean. I have read reviews on a few models and they actually have a self clean cycle that is performed automatically.
  3. Filters should be reasonably priced and not need to be replaced too frequently. What good is it to buy a $900 unit and then spend $125 a month for filters? If that is the case, I might as well spring for the $3500 unit… if I pay for it on my credit card, I am basically paying the same amount for it.
  4. The internal ionizing mechanism should be platinum or titanium plates. Those seem to hold up best to long term usage.
  5. The unit should allow you to make different water pH based on your needs. If you need acidic water (pH 3 to 6.5) for cleaning, the unit should have a setting for it. If you need more alkaline water (pH 7.5 to 11) for different uses, then you should be able to dial it up.

As you can see, I am interested in making sure that the unit is versatile and easy to use, but also cost effective and high quality. I can’t tell you which one to buy, but I can point you in the right direction for the one that will suit your needs (your needs may be different than mine).

Winter Shortening Groundhog Day Strategy Revealed

With Winter in full swing, a lot of us are watching for the annual rodent reveal tomorrow with anticipation. In fact, I was praying for a snowstorm on Groundhog Day, so that the little fella wouldn’t be able to tell his shadow from a hole in the ground. But I thought about it, and I am going to switch to a different tactic.
Ground Hog Day Toolkit
You see, this Fall, I invested in a snow blower¬†and ended up getting to use it only two times so far. While I understand that Winter still has a long way to go, I feel like I will probably get to use it a lot more before Spring. Hence my idea for buying a gardening tool set in February. When I buy it, the same positive energy that brought me snow before Christmas will bring me Spring before April… and keep the groundhog out playing in the snow, ushering in an early Spring.

That’s my theory and I am sticking with it!

Didn't see his shadow...
