          After replacing the scones in the bathroom, we needed something bright. The CFLS bulbs were just not getting it. After looking at what HD had to offer, in fact didn't notice any CFLS bulbs, decided on these. They were marked down, have a 5 year warranty and they are bright. Just what we needed. Installed them with just a few turns and in no time they lit up the room.
          After reading the back of the packaging I noticed that you can extend the warranty an addition 5 years for a total of 10 years if you register online. Just save your receipt and the confirmation email that you'll receive from Philips.
          Pros: Easy Replacement, Eco-Friendly, Very Bright

          Rabbits are sly creatures in that you don't think that there is an opening in your fence, but sure enough they'll find it. Before long their crawling under the fence and eating the lettuce.
          After receiving the product this was a perfect opportunity to test it. I followed the initial instructions and sprayed the perimeter. After a week you spray it again. Then you won't have to spray for at least a month. The results were short of magnificent. The rabbits stopped going into the garden and haven't seen any deer near the vicinity of the garden.

          At the beginning of the growing season the composted cow manure was mixed with the natural soil, which in this case is clay. Planted lettuce seeds and the plants took off beautifully, so much in fact the rabbits had made a meal of it. Used it with the zucchini and green beans with the same excellent results. Much better than dehydrated cow manure. Definitely recommend.

          Was skeptical about the fence because deer will just about do anything to get into a garden, but not with this fence. Used straight tree saplings that were about 6-7' tall, fastened them to steel posts that were in the garden with ties and because the tops of the saplings where a small diameter was able to slip the fence thru the top to add in support.
          The fence has been up for about a month and while the deer come up to the garden not one of them has has jumped the fence.

          At THD there are basically only a few brands of gloves at the store. After trying another brand and being extremely disappointed I bought the Grease Monkey gloves and have never been more delighted in work gloves.
          The fit is true to size. Been using them for cutting trees and general duties around the property for about 4-5 months and show very little wear. The Velcro fastener for the cuff is on the top of the wrist not on the bottom, for me, making them easier to put on and take off.
          When they do wear out I'll be looking for this brand again.
          Pros: Durable, Easy to Use

          Fit plenty of food storage in a small space with this 21.9 cu. ft. Maytag EcoConserve bottom-freezer refrigerator that fits in a 33-in. opening. This refrigerator uses less energy than a 60-watt bulb running continuously for one year, and it's 30 percent more efficient than minimum federal energy standards require. Spill-Catcher glass shelves help make cleanup a breeze and a half-width deli drawer adjusts to accommodate tall items on the shelves. And when you need something frozen, just open the glide-out bottom freezer drawer with SmoothClose tracks.
           

          What is the length the freezer draw pulls out? From closed to fully extended.

          Rat-X is a non-toxic rodent bait that kills rodents without harming any other species. Rat-X is made from 100% natural ingredients, it can even be used inside food handling facilities. The mice and rats will eat the bait like a food source and Rat-X will cause dehydration. Mice and rats have stomach sensors that tells them when they are thirsty. When they eat this bait, it turns off their stomach sensors and it can no longer tell their brain to drink water. They have no desire for drinking water. So they will just go back to their burrow, and begin the cycle - dehydration, failing kidneys, coma and then death. It is a great product to use around animals and children because it is safe and non-toxic. Rat-X can also be used as a refill for existing bait boxes.
