Whether traveling for work or vacationing with the kids, many people will have to leave their pets at home while they are away. As pet owners we want to know our furry friend is safe while we’re gone. Arlo is the first home monitoring system that is 100% wire free, indoor/outdoor, and weatherproof – meaning while away you can watch your furry friend in the house or out in the yard, regardless of the weather!  No wires mean you can mount them anywhere – no power cords to limit where you put them.Arlo In Box Netgear HD Cameras

I went to the store to get some Zucchini and Yellow Squash but they only had really small ones everywhere I went.  I ended up buying two Zucchini and one squash. I ended up only using one of Zucchinis and the one squash since I was really only making lunch for myself. Continue reading
