A couple of years ago we installed lights under the kitchen cabinets,that were rectangular, boxy and halogens. We don't recommend getting them because they get very hot in a short time. So, this weekend, we found small rectangular strips of LED lights at Lowes and Tom installed them. Unlike the boxy halogen lights, the LED strip of lights can't be seen under the lip of the cabinet (unless you look underneath the cabinet to take a picture like I did). The LED lights also cast a brighter and more uniform light, so it's easier to see things on the countertops. We recommend using the LED lights.
Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity. What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love? We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites. Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
We're two married guys who enjoy the simple things in life, especially our dogs. We volunteer for dog rescues, enjoy splitting dinners, exercising, blogging, helping friends and neighbors, ghost investigations, coffee and tea, Tudor history, weather, superheroes, comic books, mystery novels, traveling, 70s and 80s music, classic country, piano, gardening, writing books on ghosts and spirits, architecture, keeping a clean house, cooking simply, and keeping in shape. You'll find tidbits of all of these things on this blog and more.
