Patio covers are available in the market in hundreds of varieties. Patio covers will protect your patio from nature. They include canopies, awnings & furniture covers. Permanent covers include pergolas, arbors & gazebos. Removable ones include retractable awnings, umbrellas & fabric canopies.
Before buying, you must decide the size & shape. Canopies are versatile types, available in different styles & usable in different layouts. They protect outdoor parties. Expenses will not be very high. They are less priced & affordable. Furniture patio covers are equivalent to patio umbrellas. To keep out wind & rain, canopies with side panels are used. The side panels can be rolled up or down. The side panels are usually clear or opaque. The opaque panels block out the sun & clear you better visibility.

Fall vegetables don’t require any special care; in fact, you’ll spend less time caring for your fall crops because of the favorable autumn growing conditions. Generally, plants will grow rapidly at first and gradually slow as the days become shorter and colder. Here are some tips and ideas for learning how to grow fall vegetables and what are the 10 best vegetables to grow in fall.
You’ll be happy to discover that destructive insects won’t be as numerous as the summer months.
You will also struggle less with weed control because the weeds will germinate less frequently and grow slower than they do during the warmer growing seasons. Compared to the hot and dry summers, fall usually brings an increase in the amount of precipitation, eliminating another time consuming garden chore of irrigating the garden.
The sound of crashing waves, the smell of salty air, and the plaintive call of a gull all conjure up special memories for me that can be simply summed up: The Cape. Â Every summer growing up, we’d eagerly look forward to our two week Cape Cod beach vacation. Â The nature of those Cape vacations has evolved over the years, now being shared with another generation of the Crowley/Connolly clan. Â So it is a pleasure to share some of our family’s favorite spots–some well-known, some hidden gems, with others who might want to start their own Cape tradition–or simply check-out this great destination for the first time.
Planning Your Cape Trip: Â Some shun the Cape, writing it off because of monstrous traffic jams they’ve experienced or heard about, but this issue is really overstated. Â Yes, if you set out in the summer after work on a Friday or Saturday morning (Cape rentals usually run from Saturday-Saturday), you will sit in quite a traffic jam. Â But it’s not too hard to get down to the Cape in the summer by planning to avoid the peak times. Â Speaking of avoiding peak times, spring and fall can be wonderful times to visit. Â The crowds thin out, and you can get some beautiful weather, especially in September & October (think deep blue skies, dry air, and long marsh grass starting to put on autumnal hues).
I don’t know about you, but I thought that I have been there, done that and got the t-shirt when it comes to wall tile. I never imagined that I would ever experience the awesome feeling of seeing something new and breathtaking in the world of wall tile. Was I living in a cave wearing blinders in the dark? Was I transported to another planet where wall tile was nonexistent? Was I stranded on an island in the middle of the South Pacific?
No, I was living in the Chicago area and the thought came to me that I should take a look to see what has happened to wall tile in the 21st century. What a splendid idea! So I did…
In this day and age, landfills are becoming over filled and anything we can do to help with recycling makes a difference. One great way to recycle is to make homemade crafts using things you would normally throw away.
Before throwing something away, think to yourself: can this be used again in a craft project? Even if you don’t intend to use it right away, or if an idea does not come to mind immediately, still save it if you think it could be re-used. Keep a box of some recycled items with your craft supplies, so if you find a project you will already have the item needed on hand.
=== EGG DROP>
Are you looking for egg drop designs for your child’s school project? My 14 year old daughter tried several methods using parachutes, balloons, a roll of duct tape (aka duck tape) and each attempt led to a pile of egg goop and a disappointed young lady. The parachute slowed the descent of the egg, but the last 1/4 inch was the same sound â€” sort of a “crack” and a “thud” mixed together. The balloons, though colorful, popped on impact and so did the egg. The roll of duct tape was a futile attempt to coat this critter in plastic wrap and somehow hoping this would hold the egg firmly together. After the drop, the seeping egg juice made it clear that this approach was not the solution.
