iRobot Roomba

Don’t We All Love Help? Maintenance is the name of the game when it comes to keeping up our homes.  Lack of time is another piece of everyday reality.  What helps out tremendously is getting help from iRobot’s Roomba.

Malwarebytes

antimalware, malware, spyware, ransomeware,

Are your Computers protected from todays attacks? I have used Malwarebytes for Windows for many, many years.  It is a name synonymous with excellent spyware & malware protection.  I always used the free version as it provided most all functionality needed.  The main problem with the free version was that you have to manually download updates and run scans periodically, which was hard to remember, so it didn’t happen as routinely as it should have. When ransomware …

Instant Pot LUX60 V3

Who Should Have One? I think every household should have one!  I did take some time to research before I finally got one, and it very was hard to wait while everyone was raving about theirs. Some got theirs for a birthday present, others for Christmas. Did I need it? No, but I do love to cook and try out new dishes.  I chose the Lux60 as it was somewhat smaller and a lower price.  …

Dash Cam – Black Box B40-C

This is a great Dash Cam. It is so small & mounts out of the field of vision in both of my vehicles.  I purchased a 2nd micro usb adapter with a 10′ cable and installed it in the second vehicle. I used Command Picture Hanging Strips,and I move the Cam to whichever one I’m driving. In these days and times we never know what is going to happen, to us or around us.  I have …

Bushnell Waterproof 10×42 Roof Prism Binoculars

Bushnell Binolculars waterproof

For years I wanted a really good pair of binoculars that I could see really clearly from but they were pretty expensive.  I had always used my Father’s  that he had when he was in the Army in WWII while he was stationed in Pearl Harbor.  They were heavy and focusing was a chore to say the least, but I loved using them because they were his.  I still have them. However, last year during …
