The Samsung RSG309AARS side-by-side refrigerator – one of many refrigerators for which customers have written reviews.
Samsung RSG309AARS Side-by-side Refrigerator Review
My family loves this fridge! It’s easily accessible, we love the ice maker and water dispenser. The ice will fly out willy neely if you don’t hold your cup right up to the dispenser. We love that we can check the weather and leave notes for one another on the screen & listen to music while we cook without busting out the ipods. -SarahandJoe

Last week, my wife and I experienced one of a parent’s absolute worst fears. Three months of our family photos had somehow disappeared, including our youngest daughter’s birth.
The photos from the hospital, the coming home pictures, pictures of her in her first outfit – all gone. The latest backups were too old, all the alternate locations came up empty. Only a few pictures that had been posted on Facebook for extended family are still around.
This is, for many people, the terror of a worst nightmare. My wife and I both grew up in homes where the loss of mother’s precious pictures was not something to even joke about; careful preservation of memories in scrapbooks and albums was a serious hobby and investment. And yet, our reactions to the event did not play out exactly as I would have expected.

Too many homeowners, and even apartment dwellers, find something’s gone wrong in their home and immediately call a handyman, when they could easily fix the problem themselves. A renter might be able to get away with this if maintenance service is part of his or her rent, but a homeowner is going to have to pay for any repairs. Sometimes that adds up to a surprisingly large repair bill, especially if the professional has been called on a weekend, in the middle of the night, or has to come from out of the area. Many repairs can be done easily by a layperson, and here are five simple repairs everyone should know how to do.
