Electric Idea- October

Monday, October 15, 2012

There was a “time” when “hot off the presses” really meant something in the world of printing right? Not a “time” that our juvenile employees remember, surely, but there are some in the office who stare off into the distance, eyes hazed, remembering way back when.

Well, you’ve been waiting for the October edition of Electric Ideas haven’t you, and it’s hot off the presses waiting for you too!

Last month if you recall we highlighted sticky notes, porch swings, onion goggles… we continue right where we left off.

This is a perfect remedy to the hard headboard while trying to read before bed debacle we all get ourselves into, is it not?

Raise your hand if you make toast for breakfast in the morning… This product could save you the hassle of looking out the window to check the weather while toasting breakfast. Once your toast has popped you’ll have the forecast right in front of you. You might consider packing a lunch, doing a jig, or reading the ICE Co. blog with that two minutes saved. The options are endless.

October finale is this unique stone abode.  We determined the electrical service must be fed from underground and haven’t come to a solid conclusion as to whether it is a 100amp or 200amp panel board.

Happy trails!
Power. Current. Grounded.
