English Christmas in our house

The British will get this without reading this post. English Christmas cake and Tesco's tea...

International Space Station II

Some people said they couldn't see the space station, so I circled it.

International Space Station

We got to see the International Space Station fly over head tonight what a thrill.

TIC Watch!

I received my Tic smartwatchs today! Seems like so long ago that I pledged on Kickstarter. So far everything is going well. I am in the learning curve as I have a Hauwei smartwatch and tho they are similar there is a few differences between the two.

Scottish Rite pancake supper

What a wonderful evening! Great food and camaraderie. Many people enjoyed the Rainbow Girls servicing the dining room. The buffet style service was a hit with everyone.

Check out this unit

What a great combination of tile and recycled glass tops.... makes the shower enclosure look like a great way to protect the artwork.

Tuned in...

Here is the finished product.... A header less heavy glass shower enclosure. The glass to glass hinges make this a great fit for this bathroom.

We have so many deer in the South that sometimes they're considered Vermin. The Destruction they cause is vast but even worse they start gathering together and consuming everything and  get wasting disease.

Oh Deer!

Well the yard is full of tickets bearing deer... I wonder how a deer picking would be?

Because, sometimes you just have to move your washer and dryer on top of your Volvo station wagon.

Hot in the South...

The heat index is the factor we use to determine how much exposure we can endure.  109° at noon tells us to severely limit the amount of time before cooling down and hydrating often.

Ready to rent

Apartment A-109 is ready to rent... the mirror and carpet cleaning was the last two items on the list.

Google apps

I am a dyed in the wool Google and Android user. I love my Note 5 and Judy's Galaxy S7. I have so many of Google's apps and widgets and I find them better than similar type apps. I love the fact that I can control the permissions for any app I load and use. I really like Square Up for taking credit card payment. I like Tunnel Bear for a VPN. I average 1.5 days of battery life and my Note 5 gets a daily workout. I do not like the tracking apps for friends and family because they are so very intrusive. Google offers this service as part of the Google plus app. I have converted a lot of my friends and colleagues to Android platform and Samsung Galaxy smartphones.

High-sensitive stylus

Do you have a smartphone without an interactive stylus? This Meko stylus kit is absolutely fabulous! They have thought of everything with this kit, even a ballpoint pen. I got this for Judy's new Samsung Galaxy S7 because I love my S-pen on my Note 5. Meko works with my Note... not interactive....but the larger than S-pen makes drawing much more pleasant.

Big shower in small bathroom.

What a great use of existing space. The family needed a large relaxing shower. They got one and we're happy to have enclosed it in glass.

Getting ready for a custom enclosure

The remodeling contractor on this site is very detailed orientated. He also built the cabinets. Stay tuned for the finished product.

Basement shower

What a great space! This homeowner finished his basement and this is the shower enclosure we installed.

Finishing touches

The homeowners have waited for a long time to redo their bathroom. I am very happy to have been a part of the remodeling. Great statement using heavy glass to enclose the shower.

Pollen season

Woo-hoo, it's that time of the year. The triad of NC named one of the top 50 most difficult places to live with allergies.
