Before and After Living-room Wall Update

Thursday, December 31, 2020

We just finished painting the living-room grey, from the beige it was. It sure lightened up the room.

One wall had a brown brick wallpaper.  It was showing some age, and the color didn't go well with the grey. I found grey brick wallpaper on Amazon. Gerry did a great job with putting it up!

Gifts For Brothers And Sisters

Buying for your brother or sister can be difficult! We have some advice.


Are you looking for gifts for a sister who has everything? We know how difficult it is to find a present for a sibling, but don’t worry!

One thing all women love is to be pampered, and there is a huge assortment of gifts online to cater to this, including:
·      Snug Fleece Blanket with Arms
·      Seasonal Bath Gift Sets
·      Foot Muffs
·      Tea Lights
·      Pajamas
·      Lip Gloss
·      Reed Diffuser

Perhaps your sister is into ponies and unicorns? You may feel that this is a craze for five-year-olds, but you’d be surprised by how many women love unicorn and pony themed gifts. It’s certainly on-trend at the moment!

Clever gadgets and useful gifts always make a great impression. These are the type of presents that make people say ‘wow’. They will get a lot of use out of them, and they look impressive too. Here are some examples:
·      Ring holder – Does your sister wear a lot of jewelery? Make sure she never loses it with this gift.
·      High Heel Cake Server – Because, let’s face it, all women dream of eating cake off a pair of high heels!
·      Wireless Smartphone Touch Speaker – Stop your sibling from constantly complaining that their phone is out of battery.
·      ‘Stay Cool’ Ice Towel – If your sister is a gym bunny, this gift is a must. This towel stays cold for hours – the perfect remedy after a deadly spin class.
·      Candyfloss Maker – Who doesn’t love delicious, sweet candyfloss? If you are struggling to pick a gift for your sister, you can’t go wrong with this.


Men love gadgets too! We have plenty of ideas, including:
·      Bottle Bike Bag – Does your brother cycle to work? If so, make sure he stays hydrated on the way with a bottle bike bag.
·      Meat Thermometer – If your brother likes to cook, this is a great gift choice. Find us a man who doesn’t like a big, juicy steak!
·      Golf Ball Finder Glasses – These glasses will make sure that any golf fan does not spend too long looking for their golf balls.
·      Plectrum Punching Machine – If your brother plays the guitar or bass, they will be able to personalize their plectrum with this cool gift.
A laptop—If you have a bigger budget, why not splurge on a laptop for your brother? It’s a pricey gift, but you can buy high-quality refurbished laptops for less. You get the same performance and functionality of a new laptop while saving on cost.  
What about a tech present? Wireless Bluetooth Headphones are particularly popular. After all, you can’t go wrong with a gift like this. If your brother is constantly complaining about his phone running out of battery, an iPhone USB Charger Key ring is an excellent choice.

Shopping for the men in your life can be challenging, but there are a few go-to presents that any man will love. One of those is a nice Retro Graphic Tee .These shirts from Threadheads are more than just nice; they’re exceptional. Made from 100 percent combed cotton, these tees are ultra soft and super comfortable to wear.

You can choose from a plethora of fun designs created by in-house artists, so you won’t see the shirts on the racks in your local department store. Best of all, the combed cotton Threadheads uses for its tees is ethically sourced while the ink pigment used for printing is water-based and OEKO-TEX certified and CPSIA compliant. This means that you get amazing quality without any guilt.

Buying gifts for a brother and his girlfriend can be particularly different. You want to get something that they will both enjoy, and so it is a bit of a balancing act. Why not consider one of the following?
·      Waterproof Shower Radio – This is a gadget that both men and women can enjoy. Take singing in the shower to a new level.
·      Personalized Photo Puzzle – A personalized photo puzzle is great because you can choose a photo that means a lot to your brother and his girlfriend while also giving them some fun entertainment.

·      Wine Gift Box – A nice wine gift box for them both to enjoy is guaranteed to go down a treat.

Gerry's New Red "Toy"- Troy-Bilt's Storm 2410

Sunday, December 13, 2020

This year Gerry began doing snow removal for some of the seniors he cuts grass for in the summer, as a few are single females that like to still remain in their homes, but have no one to help them clear snow. 

With being 60 years old, and having our own snow to remove, as well as providing snow removal service for a local business, having to shovel all this by hand becomes too much to do for one person.  Therefore, it soon began apparent that he was going to need to get himself a snowblower, to make things easier. As he has Troy-Bilt equipment for his lawn maintenance he does in the summer, he wanted to go with the Troy-Bilt brand for a snow blower and chose the 24", 208cc unit, 2 stage gas.

Fast forward to getting the snowblower and after manually shoveling snow from 2 major snowfalls this winter Gerry is quite  impressed with this machine. What a workhorse. After spending less than 10 minutes assembling the unit and filling the gas tank with fresh premium fuel, 1 pull and he was off! It never missed a beat, blew all the snow he wanted to move and more.

It is small enough to clean narrow sidewalks and big enough to clean a driveway with little to no effort. He even tested it by getting into foot and half deep snow, where it proved it was quite worthy, and living up to the Troy-Bilt reputation.
