    Above Fireplace Pull Down TV Mount – MantelMount MM540

    I have a small living room in my house.  Probably around 280-300 sq feet.  My living room has an old-fashioned brick fireplace which to me is probably outdated and I don’t think I’ll be using it anytime soon. The Problem I wanted to maximize my living room space, so I decided to search for a wall mount for my TV and possible put it right on top of the firewall.  The problem with that is, the TV would be too high above eye level and it will uncomfortable watching long periods of television.

    WG520 WORX TURBINE 12 Amp Corded Leaf Blower Review

    I needed a leaf blower for my backyard.  Although I have a small backyard, I just thought that with a leaf blower, I would be efficient and fast when clearing leaves/debris and just blow dust away from the patio.  So, I went to Amazon.com and found the Worx Turbine 12 Amp Corded Leaf blower.  This is an electric, corded leaf blower.  Since I already have a 50’ heavy duty extension cord that I purchased with the Greenworks Lawn Mower, I was all set.  I purchased it Worx Leaf Blower last April and I’ve been using for the last 6 months, at the time of this writing.  I probably use it…

    Greenworks 16-Inch 10 Amp Corded Lawn Mower 25142 Review

    We have a small backyard, maybe around 300 square feet.  So, I didn’t need a big gas-powered lawn mower.  I was searching for an inexpensive, compact-possibly foldable, electric powered lawn mower.  There are several options I found in Amazon.com with prices ranging from $80 all the way to $400.  I wish I could try them all, but I settled with the Greenworks 16 inch 10 Amp Corded Lawn Mower. Yes, you read that right – this is the corded lawn mower – that means you’ll need a long extension cord to power it up.  I didn’t mind this because again I have a small backyard and didn’t mind the extra…
