That's right, minitoni. No hot doggies in this household!
And the final score is in. Looks like Jenn-Air takes this game over rival GE Advantium. It was some tough going there for a while.
I agree with Eugenia. I have nokids4sale but I'm sure I won't ever mind hearing life tales from fellow bloggers, wherever they may lead us.
Hi Carley. Glad to see you here in the Smart Home blog. Now please, enlighten us, gently, and lead us into innovation and high-tech savvy. Even the smallest kernel of enlightenment will be greatly appreciated.
On my part, I'll gladly accept opening my mind to the ever-changing new technologies that pop up constantly as long as I see a real benefit to incorporating it into my daily life.
So you see, you've got your work cut out for you!
And the survey says: I'm certainly not high-tech so I'll admit to only five TVs in my home. Having said that, I have no TV in the Master Bath shower (or anywhere else in any bathroom) nor do I have one in the kitchen. (After all, I don't cook and when I'm dining I prefer music or conversation.)
All in all, I don't watch TV that much, except for my favorite HGTV, travel, PBS and BBC series. Though I have TV's in all the bedrooms, I never watch it there -- only on the big screen in the Great Room. If the TV is ever on during the daytime, it's tuned to the Music Channel.
Last but not least, Terri seems to enjoy whatever I happen to be watching.
As for the Smart Home, since it's a showcase for smart technology, eight TV's seems quite appropriate. I'm sure I'd try out each one of the TV's and gradually focus my TV time down to just two or three -- assuming I'm the lucky winner, of course.
You can watch Laura Martin and her husband tour the Dream Home at your leisure, ut4evr, at the following web link: http://www.hgtv.com/dream-home/index.html
Scroll down the page, on the right side to "HGTV Dream Home Videos." Choose page 1, second video titled "Winner Tours HGTV Dream Home." It's just over four minutes of excitement.
You're very welcome, Moveinready. After all, daily life sometimes gets in the way of the important things like Smart Home Specials!
Admittedly, minitoni, my home is normally very calm, with an occasional houseguest or two. Even then, it's low-key. Along with the climate (a handful of rainy days per year) even Terri keeps laundry to a minimum with barely a grain of sand or dirt tracked into the house.
Hope you've caught up with your homework by now! And welcome home. Put away the vac and mop, take a deep breath, relax, and see you around in the blogs. ^_^
LOL -- I hear ya there, kids4sale. For a busy family with active kids (of any age) scatter rugs are probably not high on the favorite design accessory list. And so I'll say, in that case, "Bad rugs. Bad, bad, bad rugs!" Or as Joan would have put it, "No More Scatter Rugs, EVER!"
With a house full of kids, even area rugs (which I have in every room of my home) might be out of the question....
