I have a few things on my to do list. First, I plan to clear out all 5 junk drawers I have in my kitchen and make better use of those drawers. Next, I will organize my office so I can work more efficiently in there. Lastly, I will decorate my guest room and make it more cozy for me and my guests.

I just cleaned out my spice cabinet. After the holidays it was a mess. That felt good.

As part of a recent project I hung a 60 inch plasma TV via cables from two I-beams projecting from the back wall. For improved sound quality I integrated three Definitive speakers with the TV (left, right, center). The 1/8" wire cables attache to a pair of trolleys which roll along the I-beams. All cabling is routed via an umbilical through a hole in the wall (next to the right I-beam) and into the equipment closet. The I-beams are welded to steel posts which are built into the wall.

This achieved the look of a floating television, with nothing below or behind it. The TV and speakers can be pulled in and out depending on casual viewing vs. movie watching. Also, since this was done in the family room / kitchen space, the TV and speakers can be rotated towards the kitchen, so that someone who is cooking there can have a better view (and sound).

There are two Definitive surround speakers mounted under a console table behind the couch. These actually point backwards and reflect off of a large glass sliding door behind the viewing area. There are also two Velodyne subwoofers in the system, a large one behind the couch and a smaller one in the equipment closet. All speakers are driven by a Pioneer Elite Receiver. The television is a Pioneer Elite Plasma, which many consider to be the best picture quality ever made to this day.

When trying to turn a "media room" television space into a quality viewing experience it helps to get creative.

My favorite tool is my bandsaw. I use old crates to outline my found object butterflies in wood and wouldn't want to be without it. Ann Bort Studio on Facebook.

Does blogging count? :) If yes, then Wordpress is my favorite tool.

Please don't let charm override best practices for infant safety. There is no evidence that crib bumpers prevent injury. Conversely, bumpers increase the risk of what is identified as entrapment and suffocation. Likewise, pillows, toys and loose blankets should not be in cribs.

The American Academy of Pediatrics' infant sleep safety guidelines, interpreted in layman's terms can be found here: http://www.healthychildren.org/English/ages-stages/baby/sleep/Pages/A-Parents-Guide-to-Safe-Sleep.aspx and their research abstract is here: http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/128/5/1030.full
