I'm sure that many of you have heard of Google Now, If not it's ok too.  I just wanted to pass along an experience that I thought was pretty cool.  I was driving up the Parkway the other day, cruising right along, no problems and then BAM, the traffic just stopped.  Now I had to be somewhere and I was coming up to the last u-turn where I had to make the decision to go all the way back to the last exit or try to ride it out.  So I quickly Googled "Traffic" in Google Now and it pulls up a map with me on the stretch of road that I am on, with a stretch of red on my side and green on the other.  The BLUE DOT is me. So it didn't look to long so I deceided to ride it out. Well, since I saw that  the beginning of the RED line is right where the traffic started, I was curious to see if traffic ...

For residents with homes on and around Sparkill Creek in Tappan and Palisades, NY who have seen flooding from rainstorms soak their homes and properties, help is on the way. Work on a new and significantly larger bridge spanning the Sparkill Creek in Tappan will be starting at the end of May, 2013 to replace the 18th century bridge currently carrying Oak Tree Road traffic. The new bridge is being built in part to alleviate flooding caused by the creek during periods of heavy rainfall. Highway Superintendent James Dean explained that the narrowness of the bridge (nineteen feet wide) acts as a barrier for run-off water and contributes to local flooding in Palisades and Tappan. The new bridge will be 40 feet wide, and its level will be raised a foot higher than the current bridge. Construc...

Looking out my window seeing the heavy rain coming down one has to be sympathetic to all the realtors who are visiting and hosting open houses today. The agents who are hosting have to protect their homes from footprints and water on the floors, and the agents visiting the open houses valiantly try to remain dry and professional looking-not easy. Doesn't the weather know not to rain on Tuesdays in the Nyack area?

If you are like me, I love the look of recessed lighting, and the more the better... however what I don't like is seeing that electric meter spinning it's way into free fall!  Here is a great solution, check it out. The WAC Lighting LEDme Downlights provide highlight efficient recessed lighting with the additional benefit of dimming ability.  Already having the most efficient light bulb is great, but being able to control the wattage based upon the time of day is a fantastic idea.  As a replacement for traditional lighting, the product is ideal for retrofits.  The downlights have 50,000 hours of potential life, which if turned on 8 hours a day equates to about a 17 - year lifespan.  Now imagine never having to change a bulb in your house again and saving money to boot!

MJSI's Innovation can convert any traditional toilet into a dual flush with settings for high and low and uses up to 70 percent less water.  It also gets rid of the flapper, which deteriorates over time and needs replacement.  It requires no tools to install, works with standard flush valves, and includes a 5 - year warranty.  At $25, this product is affordable and is the one thing that everyone can do cheaply. Here is a 38 second video that shows just how easily it installs. MJSI | HydroRight Install from Front Porch Solutions on Vimeo.

   If you're like most homeowners, there is never a shortage of options when it comes to projects around the house. But studies have shown that some of the highest return on household improvements can come from those on the outside, not the inside. A primary reason is that outside investments can produce curb appeal, which is especially important if you are planning to sell your home. Those same improvements can enhance the enjoyment factor if you and your family plan to stay in your home.  For example, one national industry resource-the National Association of Realtors, reported recently their experience shows a new wood deck produces the second highest return on home improvement investment of any common addition, remodel or replacement project. However projects don't have to be big to...

What Enerlogic has come up with in their window film is really great.  It keeps the heat outside in the summer and inside in the winter. It will essentially make a single pane window perform like a double- pane and a double-pane perform like a triple pane.  It is a very cost effective product that may pay for itself in energy savings in as little as a couple of years.  It may also be eligable for a Federal Tax Credit as well, offsetting the initial cost.  Check out the links, it's cool stuff.
