Unfortunate Motorhome Fire

There is nothing worse than having to live through a fire in your life, but truth be told, it is just one of those things that is easily possible in your life.  I was hoping that I was going to be able to avoid the possibility, but sadly that isn’t the case.

You see, just yesterday, I was outside shoveling the driveway and I saw some smoke coming from the backyard.  As I ran around the house, I saw that our motorhome was on fire.


Well, at least I have some motorhome insurance and it will be replaced, but having a fire still sucks – I don’t wish it upon anyone.

Reviewing my Life Insurance Policy

Even though I did my homework last year when I took out my life insurance policy, I have decided that I would go over it on a yearly basis.  It seems that every year that I am able to find some way to save myself a little bit of money, so it is a worthwhile process.

So, I have been printing out quotes from different companies for the coverage that I need, and I will be going over them in the next couple of days.  Hopefully I will be able to save myself some money.

Sony’s 7-Inch Digital Photo Frame With Built-In Printer

Sony is about to release to the marketplace a new 7 inch digital photo frame that comes with a built-in printer.  In a matter of seconds, you are able to give away  to the family members prints of photos that were taken at your party.  The concept of a digital photo frame that comes with a printer unit is not only unique, but utterly a nice feature.  Think of uploading pics of your vacation and printing the best photos for your friends right on the spot!  Giving pictures is as easy as taking photos of the friends and printing their pictures right away and gifting it to them as mementos!

The Sony DPP-F700 is a S-Frame 7 inch digital frame with a WVGA LCD display.  It has an aspect ratio of 16:10 and is able to display photos at a resolution of 800x480.  The photo frame is posh black and is modern, and is able to present your pictures in vivacious colors and sharp details.

In under 45 seconds, the built in printer can print professional quality 4x6 inch, 300 by 300 dpi pictures for you.  You are able to modify the pictures before send them to the printer.  You will be able to play with enlarge, brightness, date stamp, reduce, sharpness adjustments, add or remove border, crop, hue, and contrast before printing the photos!

The Sony DPP-F700 digital frame can use today's most used memory cards, such as CF, MMC, SD, and others, and it also comes with a USB port for you to use.  In addition, it comes with 1GB of memory that can be used to put your pictures.  The memory can save as much as 2,000 of your pictures!  With ten transition modes, you are able to show your photos in  an assortment of slideshow playback selections.

Nevertheless, as great as the Sony DPP-F700 is, it is without Wi-Fi, audio, and movie support.  Also, what is missing is RSS feed, which limits what you can display on the digital frame!  Expect to see the Sony digital frame in the stores in January of 2010.  You can buy it for 200 dollars.  Even though it is missing wireless and some other functionalities, I still advocate this digital frame because of its photo superiority and build quality and of course, the built-in printer.

Cleaning the Carpets

One of the things that I like to do at this time of year to get ready for our yearly Christmas guests is to clean the carpets in my home.  Carpets as a whole are kind of dirty, but by cleaning them every year, I hope to get the gross residue out of them.

I depend a lot on my Ladybug cleaner to get the job done, and it has served me well over the years.  In fact, it has more than paid for itself and it sure beats using a rented one.  I don’t know what I would do without it.
