Why We Should Clean Our Own Home - It Will Improve Your Health and Save Plenty of MOney

Image
I recently started reading a book about how we should maximize our limited time on earth and do what we are meant to do and outsource certain tasks to others who are more suited to do them - let coders who are better at it than we are, let someone else walk our dogs, or clean our homes.  While I believe the idea certainly has merits, it is not for everyone. Not in the beginning anyway.  Plus, there are things that we should do ourselves like walking my own dog (I don't own one).  And as for cleaning one's home, I do believe that unless you live in a mansion, you should take time to at least tidy up your place on a regular basis even if you are a high power attorney, doctor, or, you know, me.   Let's start at the beginning.  I'm not good at cleaning my own house.  I do it from time to time when inspired but for years I did not do it on a regular basis.  Fast forward to years later and what happened?  I now clean my house on a regular basis.  Every two weeks or so.  What

Tips That Might Do More Harm Than Good

 By Sarcast I’ve read all sort of neat and cool tips on the Internet.  I’ve bookmarked them for later reference or used them if I find them so useful that I could not wait a moment longer to implement them.  A few involved cleaning the kitchen stove, getting buildup from my glasses, or reusing items in ways I did not think off.  MacGyger things, you know?  And then there are tips that are petty interesting and right up the alley of Poopy Pond but then I have to think twice before trying them. The one I’m talking about is this one here where you can bury a bottle water in the ground to help you water your plants and save water at the same time.  You can cap the water bottle to prevent water loss through evaporation.  The water is inches deep underground that further prevents water loss and the roots of the plants happily hydrated.   I’m definitely going to try a variation of this.  Variation?  Yeah, see the thing is that I’m not sure burying plastic bottles in the ground is such a good

Old school

Bringing it old school.  The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged what we know about about normal and therefore, it has brought on many changes.    Hopefully, the changes we are experiencing are temporary, whiles others are permanent. I will not focus on the temporary changes but on that I feel should be permanent.  Family time, for some families is the norm been going strong even before this pandemic. My wife would try and implement family game nights years before the pandemic. It would last a couple of weeks or maybe even a month, then life happens.  This past weekend during a three day holiday weekend, my wife asked me to play a game of Risk with my kids. I actually dreaded it. I dreaded because meant reading the instructions, explaining the rules, and referring back to it during the game.    All that would take extend the game. Before you call me lazy just remember that our sporadic family game nights happened years ago.    I want to also admit that I do not have the patience of Mother

Use help.

Use help when it is available.  There times when we cannot do it all, unless you are alone then you might have to get creative. This article is for folks that have to get past the occasional brain fart and pride.  It is a brand new year, my wife and I have three kids. We wanted to rearrange their their rooms and make it as permanent as possible so we did away with kiddie furnitures, and bunk beds.  So, we have a twin/ full size bunk bed that was occupying one of the rooms we wanted to to rearrange. My wife put the bunk bed on Craig's List and had several inquiries.    Some of the folks who inquired about the bunk bed flaked, except for one. We had made arrangements for the sale and pick up of the bunk bed.  The night before the scheduled meet up time, I was taking apart the bed. I had my eleven year old son (middle son) help me.    My son was done unscrewing his portion of the bed where the horizontal bed frame attaches to the vertical leg frame.    The bed frame and leg opposite (

Legos

  Lego After two weeks of being in quarantine, I finally got to go home and spend some time with my family.  I had some Christmas gifts. I got a shirt, shorts, pants, and a Lego set. This was not any old Lego set.    It was a Lego set that brought back nostalgic memories from years ago (long time). The Lego set is the Nintendo Entertainment System, Kit #71374. It might be on the pricey side, but I would like to to think I am totally worth every cent. Despite the price, when you sit there and start building, like all the other Lego sets out there, there are a lot of little details that go into them.  Just in the TV set if this Lego set, there are    a lot of moving parts. There is a crank which moves Mario through a moving screen. The details that go into it is extremely amazing! The folks at Lego that dream this stuff up, kudos!  The second part of the build is the Game console itself. The detail again for this build is amazing! It has moving parts that receives a Lego game cartridge (
