Number three, clean windows is definitely on my list. Gotta haul the ladder out and make a go at that. 20-foot ceilings make for a beautiful room and a great work out.

Also, I''m going through old framed art and pictures that I have stashed in two boxes in my hall closet. I hope to change out a few pieces that I know I'm not using because a frame is dented but I still want to keep the art. A lot of frames I can reuse for new pictures I've taken of the surrounding country side to put in my guest room.

Another good resource is the THX website. The THX Cinema Standard is one of the best benchmark audio-visual standards for top-notch high-definition audio and video. They have a wealth of information. The Aperion website also has a ton of information about how to set up speakers and wiring and how to calibrate audio settings with a good receiver. Lastly, I'd buy a calibration BluRay disc like that made by Disney or THX to make your picture and audio calibrations as perfect as possible. It's a really solid $20 investment.

Lastly - if you're not very tech oriented - take a look at a sound bar or Soundbar plus satellite speaker setup like those made by Sony or Vizio. They're simple to setup and are a perfect solution for a smaller space without the need for tons of speakers and no receiver or amps/preamps. Another option would be to look at Bose. However, Bose is notoriously late in adopting industry-wide standards for connectivity, and often uses proprietary signaling and connectors which are Bose-only and do not play well with other equipment. What's more, they're not DLNA-compliant, have so-so sound processing, are extremely expensive for the quality, and do not even offer the modern 7.1 or 7.2 Hi-Def standard.

I work wood. My workbench and tools are what make it possible. I built my bench based on a model from the 18th century. My as-yet unfinished tool chest will house my precious collection of hand tools. The best piece I have built so far, in my own opinion, is our table. This I consider to be a true family heirloom, constructed of southern yellow pine, and aging nicely.

I am finding so many of your tools inspiring!
Have to agree with some others above. Even though my work is decorative painting, and perhaps the brush work be next in line, but every thing for me begins with the pencil. And there's something cathartic about sitting before a plank sheet of paper, and watching the ideas take form.

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
