Pet Seat Cover by Big Ant

Sugar just got a new pet car seat. It’s pretty convenient as it can be unzipped to be used as a cover for the seat in my vehicle so her hair doesn’t get all over it, or it can be zipped up and make a box type seat for her to sit in. The back is rubberized so it stays put and doesn’t slide around and it is really well made with good stitching and quality materials. Yay for a cleaner vehicle! You can read more about it here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073Z8LH4D #tomoson #ad

Zaker 10 Pack Solar Eclipse Glasses

These glasses will help me be able to see the first solar eclipse in 38 years and be comfortable while I am doing it. The glasses came and I took them out of the bag to see just what they were actually like. They were individually packaged – all 10 of them – and appear to be well made. I was surprised to see that the ‘lenses’ part of the glasses actually looked like smooth, thick aluminum foil to me. I guess I expected them to look more like green plastic sunglass lenses. The glasses themselves are cardboard and in red, white and blue colors. They look fun and festive.

What I really like about these eclipse glasses, apart from being able to see the eclipse, is that they are also keepsakes. There is a place on the inside of the glasses to put your name and mark the time you got to see the eclipse. I am aware that you can only look directly at the sun for no more than 3 minutes at a time with these, but it sure beats staring through old negatives, which a lot of folks in this digital age don’t even have lying around anymore.

Deluxe Copper Grill Mat set of 3

This grill mat is the perfect solution to a mess in the oven that needs to be scrubbed out. Yes, they are meant for backyard grills, but I got them for using in the oven to deal with pizza I heat on the rack, apple pies that boil over and cooked on spills that seem to take ages to clean up after they are baked on.

These wonderful mats are washable and reusable. You can wash them in the top rack of the dishwasher but I find it easier to quickly clean them up with soap and water and pop them back into the oven for future use.

These are non stick for grilling or baking but when baking I don’t set my temp higher than 400 degrees, even though you can cook up to 500 degrees. Most of my recipes call for temperatures 375 to 400 degrees, anyway.

To use them, I can put the food directly on the mat (like I do for pizza) and cook like normal. I only use wood or plastic utensils so I don’t scratch the copper mats. Continue reading

Unitech Ip Dome Security Camera

This security camera is very well made and comes with good instructions in their Quick Guide User Manual.  You can use it with a Mac or PC and all the cables are tagged to indicate their functions so you aren’t trying to figure out where they go.

You can install this security camera yourself, but I recommend getting someone who is qualified to install security cameras.

Inside the box is the camera, the screw kit, a drill template, documentation and a waterproof hardware kit.  This security camera gets its power from our Ethernet cable, it is not wireless.

The benefit of this camera is that it has great night vision up to 98 feet with 24 infrared LEDs.  We needed the night vision capabilities of this camera for our yard and driveway.  The ability to record video and pictures was a must.  This camera is weatherproof, something you really need in humid climates, and we can adjust the motion detection ability of the camera when we need to. Continue reading
