Last Kids on Earth Monster Box. Great books for kids stuck at home

Cool Books for Kids Stuck at Home

"Last Kids on Earth" Books are Cool!

I just finished reading the book, "Last Kids on Earth and the Zombie Parade". It's all about these 4 kids named Jack, June, Dirk, and Quint, and they have many adventures with all kinds of monsters and zombies, some good, some bad.

One of Their Adventures With A Monster

At one point, they are fighting the "Wormongulous" (a big monster that looks like a worm), and they are saved by a different monster named Thrull. Then later they realize Thrull is a servant for the destructor of worlds. They then find another monster that is truly on their team and find a way to make the wormongulous on their team to defeat Thrull together. i liked this book because of all the cool action and interesting monsters.

Why I Liked The Monsters

I mostly liked the monsters the best. They were really cool looking even though I do like the action. In my opinion I think the interesting monsters take first place. One example is Blarg, a monster they defeated to then realize they had defeated one of the most intense monsters of them all.

Why I Liked The Action

The second most thing I liked in this book was the action. I liked this the second most because it has a ton of explosions and much more. For example, at the end when they are fighting the destructor of worlds, there's cool action, like they spray Weed be Gon on "vine thingies" to help them defeat Thrull.

Shindaiwa Makes Great Hedge Trimmer

Great Hedge Trimmer!

Shindaiwa makes trimming hedges easier.

A while back, I made a video showing how I turned my yard from basic to professionally landscaped on a budget. Basically, I hired a landscape architect to draw a landscape plan, then I found a wholesale nursery and put the yard in myself by following the plan. A key part of the landscape plan were the hollies and hedgerows that added structure to the yard. Today, I want to talk about the great hedge trimmer I’ve found to shape those hollies and keep the hedgerows looking their best.

Leaf Blower Need Repair?

Leaf Blower Stopped Working?

A hand-held, high-powered leaf blower can really help you maintain your landscape. But it's a real pain when your leaf blower stops working and needs repair, especially if you're trying to get the fall leaves up off the lawn, out of your yard, and out to the street for pick up. When my leaf blower stopped working last fall, I was thinking it was going to cost me at least $100 plus all the time finding a repair shop and waiting to get it fixed. Luckily, I found a great online resource that helped me get my gas-powered leaf blower back up and running in about 5 minutes for nothing.

Mountable and portable extension cord reel for your garage ceiling

How to Install a Retractable Extension Cord in Your Garage Ceiling

A Safer and More Convenient Electrical Cord 

Like a lot of people, I do woodworking projects in my garage. For my miter saw, table saw, and other power tools, I had always used a regular old electrical cord (a "drop cord"). It worked, but it always ended up tangled on the floor and in my way. So, recently I started looking for a retractable extension cord reel that I could mount to my garage ceiling. The one I found has worked out really well. It's even portable! Thinking it might help other garage woodworkers, I made a video showing how to install the retractable extension cord reel I went with. You can see it and some photos from the installation below.

iRobot Braava Jet — Review of the "Robot Mop"

I recently bought an iRobot Braava Jet "Robot Mop" and I love it. It was actually my 3 year old who started calling it "Robot Mop". I decided to review it here for

Why a Robot Mop?

We already had a Roomba vacuum, and it does a great job picking up dirt and dust. But we've got a ceramic tile kitchen floor and hardwood floors everywhere else. We've also got a toddler and a newborn. And I was getting tired of mopping the kitchen floor and cleaning the hardwoods with my Shark steam mop. I still use the steam mop for spot cleaning. But for routine floor cleaning, the Robot Mop does a better job!
