The Garage

The one place that I can really relax in is my garage. There is nothing I like more than to tinker around with a project or two in my garage. I spend hours thinking up things to make and making them. I have built a few birdhouses and other projects for the kids. The one thing that I am really proud of is my tools. I like to have whatever tool I need right at my fingertips.

The last big project I started was to make a chair. The wife had seen a picture of one she liked and I wanted to make her one for her birthday. When I started the project, I made a list of the Tools and Hardware that I would need. While I was sure that I had most of the Hand Tools I needed, I realized that I would need some new Power Drills. I knew I would have to purchase the tools I needed before I started.

It took a while for me to get everything I needed together. But I knew it would save time when I actually started working. The chair was a challenge, but I found it easy once I got started. I finished the chair and my wife loves it. She said it was the best birthday present she ever had. I owe it all to a little planning and the best tools.

Giant Fish Sales

The Japanese have been well known for their love of fish. This is especially true when it comes to the taste of tuna. They have proven their love of tuna when a Japanese businessman paid a record price of $ 750,000 dollars for a prized blue fin tuna. He plans to sell the fish to the customers at his restaurant.

The tuna weighed in at a weight of 592 pounds. The owner of the fish says it is perfect with just the right amount of fat and that the color is very good. I guess time will tell and we will see whether or not the tuna pays off.

TV and Christmas

It has hard put to find anything on the television that isn’t pertaining to the Holiday Season, that is in full swing as I type these holiday words, we just can’t seem to get away from this over abundance of Holiday Spirit.

At the Mall and ALL the other stores have been playing holiday music for the past several weeks and have gone the extra mile to decorate in the most elaborate decorating frenzy ever, it just seems that it is everywhere and it can be a bit over whelming when you are as strapped for cash as I seem to be lately.

One more week and it will all be a memory, hopefully a good one for each and all.

It’s That Time Of The Year

Besides watching football on Thanksgiving Day, my of my favorite things to watch is the news about those who wait for a store to open for days before Black Friday. I wonder of these people are really as crazy as they seem. Going through all that trouble just to shop??

I think I’ll do what I always do and that is to stay home and order my things on the internet. Why fight the crowds when I can have what I need delivered to my house. These people are just not thinking to clearly. They are fun to watch though.

My Hands

One of the joys in my life is taking on home improvement projects. I like working with my hands and seeing the results every day when I am done. That’s why when my wife suggested that we might want to fix the backsplash over our kitchen counter, I was all for the idea. The backsplash we have now is waterlogged and rotting away. We thought that using tiles would give us a better look and be more functional.

There are many advantages to using tile. One great thing is that it is waterproof. That means that you can use them even in places where there is a good chance that water will be present. Another advantage is that they are easy to clean. You can also use them on the floor or the wall. We have always been happy with the bathroom tiles in our home, so we thought that using them in the kitchen would work out fine.

The only decision we had left was to figure out where to get the tiles. As usual, we turned to the internet. I found a good site that had a good selection of quality tiles. I even found subway tiles on the site. I am sure that I will enjoy the challenge of putting the tiles up. It will be nice to know that I can use my own hands to improve my home!
