    I had worried that I had not seen any butterflies all summer, but now I am seeing a few. Isn’t that orange butterfly just gorgeous? I love to watch them flitter about in the wind, settling for a sip of nectar and flitter on.

    Three Things To Consider For Your Window Renovation Project

    Posted on August 11, 2015 @ 5:43 pm

    A great way to make your house look better and perhaps increase its value is to replace the windows. The is especially true if the windows are a couple of decades old and reflect a style that has long gone out of fashion. This type of window replacement falls under the category of renovation and takes some planning to decide on what you like best. The following are three things to think about before you decide on the type of renovation you want.

    Should the windows open?
    It is common for people to have windows looking out to the front of their house that do not open, but new windows mean you can have any kind of window you desire. If you want windows that open, this can be done. This is a great idea for those with patio doors in the back of their home. Opening up a window in the front of the house will create a cross breeze that can cool down your home and reduce the use of the air conditioning system.

    Going green with your new windows
    Depending upon which direction your windows face, you may want to consider larger windows to let more light inside. This can help heat your home in the winter, and by allowing more sunlight inside, you are not as dependent on artificial light. Large windows will require a good blind system, so you can control the amount of light entering your home.

    Renovation can include construction
    New windows can include a moderate amount of construction. The best example is to take your existing windows and build outward to create a bay window. With this design, you will turn one window into three, and you will have additional space inside your home to sit by the window. Another possibility, along the same line of thinking, in building bow windows. These are similar to bay windows, but have four or more windows in a bow like configuration. Whether bay or bow window is right for you will depend upon your house as well as your tastes and preferences for window design.

    You can get more information about renovating your windows from many contractors on the Internet as well as a quotation. One example of this type of website is renovationexperts.com. Click now for more information.

    Product Review: Easy@Home 3 in 1 Non-contact Infrared Thermometer

    Posted on July 16, 2015 @ 4:19 pm

    Getting the right temperature when a child is sick is very important. It’s nice that now we have digital thermometers to give you accurate readings because old school thermometers sometimes, give you different results. Today, I am reviewing the 3 in 1 Non-contact Infrared Thermometer by Easy@Home.

    thermometer 3

    thermometer 4

    thermometer 6

    thermometer 8

    Product Description
    *Experience quick and simple temperature taking with the Easy@Home NCT-301 non-contact, infrared thermometer. This easy to use thermometer has the latest infrared technology to display accurate readings within a second. There is no longer any physical contact necessary to get a simple temperature reading, it should always be this easy!
    *Non-Invasive:
    Instead of startling or irritating your children, this thermometer reads at a distance and notifies you silently. Eliminating physical contact decreases the chance of cross contamination between users while silent monitoring will not disturb them. The thermometer has a beeping sound to alert for high temperatures, however this feature can be disabled so that no sound emits while taking measurements.
    *Tri-Color Display:
    The LCD display will show one of three colors based on the temperature. Not only does this display make reading temperatures easier in the dark, but the three colors indicate different ranges. A green display (<99.1°F (37.3°C)) indicates normal temperature, yellow display 99.3°F~100.2°F (37.4°C~37.9°C) indicates low-fever and red display >100.4°F (38°C) indicates high-fever.
    *Excellence Guarantee:
    We offer a lifetime no hassle replacement guarantee for customers.

    How to Take Temperature:
    1.Clear forehead area of any hair or perspiration.
    2.In ‘Body’ mode (default), aim to the center of the forehead from a distance of 1.2 – 2 inches.
    3.Press the scan button and wait a second for the display to show the reading.

    My Thoughts

    This one looks so sleek and stylish. I love that it is easy-to-use and you get the result almost instantly. The LCD readout is large enough for me to see without my eyeglasses. It’s easy to read and it has red, green and yellow backlight colors. The thermometer can be easily switched from farenheit to centigrade, so you can use whatever unit you are comfortable with.

    thermometer 10

    thermometer 9

    thermometer 12

    Overall, I like this gadget. You know how kids hate it when it comes to taking their temperature. This one is easy because you only need to aim it on the forehead to get an accurate reading. If you are looking for an easy, quick, non-invasive way of taking temperatures, this is a good product to try.

    Where to buy?

    You can purchase the Easy@Home 3 in 1 Non-contact Infrared Thermometer through Amazon. It retails at $35.97.

    Disclosure: I received a sample of this product free of charge for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed here are 100% my own and was in no way influenced by anyone or the brand.
