Great Scales For my Office

I have used the Smart Weigh scale all over the house for everything from weighing out food, to calculating postage, and measuring the weight of jewelry. I have another scale that looks just like it and they both always give me the exact same values — extremely precise and highly accurate.

Great Hot Towel Warmer for my Wife an Esthetician

Great Hot Towel Warmer for my wife

My wife is a professional esthetician and the Combination Towel Warmer Cabinet and UV Sterilizer unit was the perfect choice for her practice. It’s roomy, allowing plenty of storage space for warm towels, and you also have the added bonus of UV sterilization should you choose to utilize that aspect of the warmer.  This cabinet fits perfectly on a nice folding TV stand and doesn’t get hot and heat up the entire treatment room!

A Cordless Strimmer with good power and run time

A Cordless Strimmer with good power and run time

The Black & Decker LST136 is my first battery operated strimmer and I am impressed. I previously had a plug in one which was quiet but lacked power and of course had the cord to drag around. I upgraded to a gas powered model a few years ago, which gave me power and no cord, but came with the cost of being hard starting, loud, smelly, and a lot of arm numbing vibration. The LST136 is the best of both models, without the drawbacks. And all I could say was “Wow!” when I used it. Mind you my yard had not been touched up until this last week and it went through everything I ask it to with not a hitch on the lowest setting.

My Perfect Backpack for Hiking

My Perfect Backpack for Hiking

I love hiking so I was in the market for a new backpack. I would always pick an internal frame backpack. I’m a quite big guy so I need a big pack. The TETON Sports Scout3400 is a big pack. Fits me nicely. I like the padded waist belt holds it comfortably in place. This pack was remarkably lightweight when it arrived.

There is ample storage for a weekend trip, and I suppose longer if you pack smart. The sleeping bag compartment was large enough to hold my Teton Trailhead 20 sleeping bag without a problem.
