3.       It’s important to have as much contact with older people as possible.

Clean, cheap energy storage for home or office…Most stationary batteries store energy but are made from highly toxic or flammable materials.  The new AHI battery relies on a salt water based electrolyte to carry the charge.  Non-toxic and low cost and it can’t overheat.  It has a long life cycle and can be scaled for home use of the grid.



Kohler Introduces the touchless flush kit…

Hands-Free Toilet Tech

Kohler’s kit converts nearly any toilet into a hands-free model.  A proximity sensor mounted under the tank lid projects a three-inch field.  At the first wave of a hand, the sensor relays a signal to a small battery-powered motor connected to the flush valve – about $99


Gorilla Clear Repair Tape

Invisible Duct Tape

Duct tape is a great tool, just ask Red Green.  But it is ugly.  Gorilla Clear looks like packing tape, but it has extra adhesive and doesn’t yellow with sun.  It can invisibly mend a window, cracked head lamp or shattered phone screen.
