This is the portable ice maker that produces ice more efficiently than lesser models. Yielding 1"-long conical-shaped ice cubes in batches of 12, the ice maker creates 1.8 lbs. of ice per hour. Analyst’s from the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute praise this unit for its ability to produce, “a batch of clear, well-formed cubes in just under 10 minutes.” Its easy-to-use, drain-free operation simply requires filling its 1.32-gallon reservoir with water, selecting from small to large ice cube sizes, and setting the timer for 1/2-hour to 18-hour continuous operation. It shuts off automatically when the easily removable 23/4-lb. capacity bin is full, and any meltwater is filtered and re-used for the next batch. An audible alert notifies you when the water tank is empty. Two side handles provide easy portability. Stainless steel construction provides easy cleaning. Plugs into AC. 15" L x 17 1/4' W x 17" H.

DIY Plywood Flooring

DIY Plywood Flooring is a easy way to make a room beautiful. Plywood is so much cheaper than vinyl, designer planks or actual hardwood. Having the plywood floors is cheaper not the easy way out. This is work, hard work. Get down and get dirty work. Simple, pretty much, back breaking of course. My husband has been a trooper and happy once the work has been done. I had my two bathroom priced for vinyl floors and was told it would be over a thousand for those rooms. I almost died. I had just checked out of Lowes for just about all my floors for less than $1,200.00. So for vinyl, well over thousand for bathrooms we decided we would do plywood in the bathrooms also. I am not sure of the exact dollar amount we have spent on this project but it has been the cheaper way to go with the floors.

Genetic Testing Dogs

We have recently decided to start breeding Labradors. As you all know, we have four Labradors and genetic testing is important when you breed. You want to produce the best of the best when breeding puppies. You do not want to bring in puppies that will have life long health problems. Genetic testing dogs will help eliminate any future issues for puppies. When selling puppies, you want to insure your potential buyers that you have taken the steps to provide them with healthy puppies .

Even with genetic testing you can always have some sort of issues. Lets take Berkeley for an example, he had to have his salivary gland removed. This is not something that we would have known by a genetics test. Berkeley also has Hemorrohagic Gastroenteritis. We have extensive medical bills with Berkeley.  We have been debating on getting pet insurance , if you have someone to recommend please let me know in the comments below.
