New cameras all up and running. These Arlos are 5/7 for 99% of users. I strongly recommend them.

Guy to clean the gutters never showed. Time to try the next one.

They are about $150 a piece for the 'pro' version which is worth it over the regular for the rechargable batteries.

The base station is $100 too.

Totally wireless. Great app. I'm a big fan.

When we moved into bricktopia I made the resolution that I would never move myself again or paint myself again. I loved selling paint and I HATE painting. It isn't all that expensive in reality. On a standard box room, it's a couple hundred bucks to pay someone.

You could afford to drive an Alpa if you didnt paint all your rooms.

It's a beautiful wall, at its current color it sucks up a lot of light in the room. The white should make it way way more vibrant.

That's adorable.

Hope you guys can find a way to keep him interested in learning. I wish I'd stuck with it and learned more when I was playing. Probably my mom's biggest "I told you so".
