Phenomenal Presents for Father’s

Phenomenal Presents for Father's and Great Gifts for Dads! I am not sure what Father's Day is like for everyone else - but at our house, it is a seriously hard core competition to see who can think of the most creative, most original, most amazing Father's Day gift for my Dad. While we're not a huge family (two kids, two grandkids) we take it really seriously. It's always hard to top each other - and ourselves, too! The good news is that since I have already had to tread this path, I churned up tons of universally awesome gifts that I won't be giving my Dad - and I can safely share with you. Don't forget - Father's Day is Sunday, June 19th!

Homeowner Help for Electrical Questions: Where to Find Help - Without 'Asking'. Let's face it - we all want to feel empowered, skilled, and knowledgeable. One of the ways we do this in our own homes is by tackling DIY projects - sometimes little ones we take classes at with our friends in the big box store, or biting off bigger ones we see on HGTV. Some projects - like painting, staining, or building a planter box - are a lot easier than others - such as wiring in your own under cabinet lighting, installing power and hanging a new ceiling fan, or wiring in a high-powered hot-tub. But the truth of the matter that it is easy to get in over your head, especially with electrical projects.

The Homeowner's Guide to Power Outages. Be Safe and Keep It Together.

These circumstances are especially dangerous because of their unpredictability and 'random' appearance.
