Today I get into a product I felt I needed, to track my sleep habits as well as incorporate comfort and warmth when I sleep.  The Eight Sleep tracker is a mattress cover that tracks the whole bad (two sides to accommodate two people) sleep patterns (awake, lite sleep, deep sleep Rem sleep) into an app that has great summaries and detail to improve your sleep.  It also is a comfortable mattress pad with a heater incorporated.  Here's my review because I had to order a new one.

Alicia and I take a visit to this well advertised Amazon experience center where all the automated services we installed a year ago. Is being rolled out into to new homes.  The one exception is the home delivery options that is way too expensive to just have scheduled on a regular basis.

iRobot's Roomba 690 vacuum offers lots of functionality for the price, including control via smartphone and support for voice commands through smart home devices. I finally had my wood floors down and I wanted something that could clean them every day.  We try out the Roomba 960 and the affordable 690 and go through our test.  These are Amazons best pick for vacuums.   irobot5.jpg
