Designing a kitchen peninsula

Designing a kitchen peninsula
Written by Steve Dowling on 2016-07-31


What should the backing of a kitchen peninsula look like if the cabinets are a maple color. It could be a painted color that is different than the cabinets themselves.

Black Friday 2014 Sales
Written by Steve Dowling on 2014-11-20


There are always good black Friday deals and this year is no exception. Unfortunately, stores are opening earlier and earlier, so I will have to have a game plan for any shopping that I plan on doing. There are also deals online, so I will have to check those out. I do not really need anything this year, as we got a tv last year, but there are still a few things I am looking for. One is a tablet,...(Read More)

Cucumber Seeds Planted On June 1st
Written by Steve Dowling on 2014-06-01


We planted our cucumber seeds just in front of the back corner of our backyard. These were the first seeds that we have ever planted.

We then covered them with about an inch of organic garden soil and watered well. ...(Read More)

I...(Read More)

Samsung 46 inch LED Smart TV Review
Written by Steve Dowling on 2013-12-08


The Samsung 46 inch LED Smart TV, 60hz, is great so far. I had to adjust the standard picture to increase the backlight on the tv. It was very dark when the situations on the television were light. After the adjustments, the picture looks great.

My current settings are:

Backlight: 17
Contrast: 100
Brightness: 45
Sharpness: 55
Color: 55

For video games, I changed the settings to the dynamic...(Read More)
