Moleskine Notebooks For The Star Wars Fan

It’s funny that the older I get the more I cherish the original Star Wars films and hate the prequels. When creator George Lucas sold to Disney in 2012, I felt like I was getting an old friend back. Now with the latest movie slated for the holiday season of 2015, we’re starting to see a boost in Star Wars-related activity. Predating that sale, however, these Star Wars Moleskine Notebooks continue to be a bright spot in recent SW lore. Moleskine, the heir of the legendary notebooks used by avant gard artists and thinkers of the past two centuries, often Read More

Honeywell Wi-Fi Smart Thermostat

Honeywell’s Wi-Fi thermostat includes all of the functions of a standard thermostat, but it really excels in its programming functions. Its Wi-Fi technology allows you to access it with your Android or iOS smartphone or a PC and start heating your home while you’re on your evening commute.  Much like the Nest 2, you can program it based on your habits or to stay mostly off while you’re on vacation, for example, kicking in just enough to prevent pipes from freezing. You can also manually program it right on your wall. The “smart” properties of the thermostat include its motion Read More

Sautee Wood Works: Two Centuries Behind The Times, And That’s The Way They Like It

Sautee Wood Works is the creation of carpenter extraordinaire Jim DeVincentis, who makes some of the most beautiful 19th Century woodworks currently available in the United States.  You can find most of his stuff over at Etsy. A recent Garden And Gun piece on DeVincentis highlighted his expertise at making vintage pie safes that look like they came right out of the 17’ and 1800s — the period of time when they were their most popular. A pie safe, for those of you who’ve never heard of them, were predecessors to refrigerators. They were used for storing pies, breads, meats, Read More
