The Evolving Home Entertainment Center September 27, 2010

Filed under: Entertainment — modrox @ 3:40 pm

There’s a good chance that the home entertainment center you have today is quite different from the one you had ten, five, or even a couple of years ago. The 80’s and 90’s styles are becoming more and more impractical now as wireless technologies and flat screen televisions have become mainstream.

As a kid, our home entertainment center was a simple cart that housed the TV and a VCR. Not very impressive, but it worked fine. I think it might have had a little storage shelf, but I have no idea what was put there. There was no such thing as a remote control so every time we wanted to change channels we had to make a little trip across the room to switch channels. Of course, there were only three channels so it’s not like we had to change it that often. Thankfully, TVs grew up and so did the places people put them in.

When I got out on my own and got a TV it just lived on a simple table. That worked fine for a single guy. But marriage changes lots of things. Soon we “had to have” a better place to put the TV because my wife wanted to be able to close it off from view. So, woodworker that I am, I jumped to the rescue. I built a home entertainment center that was a thing of beauty to behold. Solid wood, plenty big, retractible doors, lots of storage, and a massive open cavity to house a ridiculously heavy TV. LIke other large entertainment centers, this one was great for what it was. Plus, the top had lots of display space for knick knacks.

Last summer when the old bazillion pound TV died we opted for one of the new flat screen models. Even though the screen was much larger, it weighs much less. I love that! So, what did I do? I took my circular saw and busted a move on the old home entertainment center.. I sawed it down big time. What I ended up with was just a small remnant of the old one. I can’t close it off from the rest of the room, but why would I want to? I don’t. Some people are even more minimalists than I am. They mount their TV on the wall and just use a small cabinet for components. Now that’s what I call a home entertainment center. Easy on the back and more floor space. Sounds like a winner to me.

The only thing I can think of that would make me want any sort of cabinet type home entertainment center in the future is if I were to get one of those fancy schmancy lifts that hook onto the TV and allow it to recess into, and lift out of, a nice wooden cabinet. I would consider that. Especially if it had a remote control to run the lift. That might be too good to pass up.

Who knows what the next evolutionary step will be. Maybe holographic TV or some other technology that will make a home entertainment center all together obsolete. For now I am content to be rid of the old big unit, enjoy my current setup, and just wait and see what comes next.

Home Security Advice When Selling Your Home August 29, 2010

Filed under: Security — modrox @ 4:24 pm

When you decide to sell your home, and it’s going to be vacant, you may be thinking of installing an home security alarm system. But before you do, you have to make sure you understand a few things. For starters, the secret code won’t be a secret for long. Whether it’s published on the MLS, or given to all potential buyer’s agents via phone or email, the secret will be out.

Alarms provide protection while your home is vacant or not. But you have to remember that the alarm can actually become a nuisance when instructions aren’t followed, whether it’s the instruction on the listing page stating that the buyer’s agent should call beforehand for the code (and they don’t) or if the step-by-step instructions hanging on the wall directly next to the alarm seem to be written in some other language.

To avoid these mishaps, selling agents can opt to show the house by appointment only, since too many times buyers agents don’t call for the code and the proper authorities are contacted, the alarm company is contacted and eventually the selling agent is contacted. But there are other options too. That’s why you have to decide whether or not the alarm system is actually a good idea.

Here are some tips you can utilize if you don’t want the hassles of an alarm system:

Fool the dummies with dummies. Dummy cameras, yard signs and window decals are all great ways to try and fool an intruder. Install motion detectors for all areas. Front yard, back yard and the sides of your homes will light up if motion is detected and generally scare the intruder away. Timed interior lights could also deter intruders and trick them into thinking someone is home. As a selling agent, recommend to your clients that leaving some furniture in the home, including knick-knacks on windowpanes and a couch or hanging plants will help make the home look like someone is living there still.

Again, these are just some ideas to help you get through the joys of home selling, with hopefully, less stress. Alarm systems are a great way to secure your home, however sometimes they’re more of a hassle than a luxury.


Selecting the right dog for your Home or Family

Filed under: Home And Family — modrox @ 4:23 pm

Hi, maybe you are thinking of owning a pet for your Home or Family. The question is which animal is the right one for me and or my Family? Well hopefully this articile will help you make that decision much easier.

There are 100’s of animals as well as breeds to coose from but how do you pick the right one? Before I answer that allow me to tell you a little bit about my experience with animals. I’m 56 yrs. of age and I raised everything you can think of in the domestic line of animals and quite a few of the exotics as well. Over the years I learned many valuable lessons on choosing the right animal that I will gladly share with you or anyone interested in owning the right pet for the Home and Family. I dealt with all kinds of temperments and behaviors that can cause many folks to quickly realize they might of made a mistake in thier choice of a pet. I learned that only a very few animals are actually suited for the Home and Family. Knowing which ones are, makes a huge differance in selection.

So where does one begin? With the animal of choice. You must know all you can about the animals behavior and temperment first before you choose your pet. That’s where most people fail when it comes to choosing thier ideal pet. Most people see an animal and based solely on it’s appearance they fall in love with it. Bad choice! Looks, color, cute, and all of those kind of reasons for choosing a pet leaves most folks wishing they had never seen that animal from the beginning. Cute is good until you realize that you can not train cute. Did you know that some pets are very difficult to train? All animals can be trained if you are an experienced trainer. If you are not it can turn out to be a living nightmare when you try to train or correct your pets bad habits. There is an ole saying from trainers about training animals and it is, you have to be smarter than the animal you are trying to train.

Unless you are a professional Trainer it pays to know all you can know about the animal you are about to choose as your pet. Unless you are prepared for the nightmare that will surely come from the lack of experience with correcting behavorial problems. To save you and others alot of frustration I will narrow the selection porcess down to one animal. That one is the Rat Terrier. Why this one? Because even a novice can train this dog. These dogs are super intelligent and they are more than willing to please their owners. They basically will train themselves as they begin to get to know what you like and what you don’t. That’s how smart they are. Rat Terriers are the perfect Family pet because certain traits were bred into them to make them the way they are. They were bred to do just what thier name denotes and that was to eliminate rats in the Home. These littles guys are use to living in the Home and they adore thier owners. So much so that they will do just about anything to please thier Masters that they can do.

Training is easy all you do is talk to them as you would talk to your child when correcting them. I know that sounds silly but that’s how they learn what you like and what you don’t. Scolding them is the best way to denote your dissaproval of the behavior you want them to correct. This Articile is going to be be quite long so for the purpose of easy learning I will write several segements in order to understand why Rat Terriers are the perfect Home and Family Pet. Come again if you would like to know more on choosing the right pet for you and your Family.
