Our “Save the Tree” Cam

Here’s another product I can rave about: the Ring Solar Cam. We have a Ring doorbell, and we really like it. When someone approaches the front door, it notifies us on the phone.

Something Rotten

had heard that Something Rotten was a really good Broadway show, and this weekend we saw it at the Fox Theater. I love going to the Fox if for no other reason than simply to be at the Fox.
