new keurig coffee makers – the best one yet

Nearly everyone loves a good cup of “joe”. Nothing beats a steaming cup of coffee to begin the day. I remember the days of my mother’s old aluminum coffee pot that she placed on the kitchen stove about five each morning. Even as a kid,  nothing could replace the smell of fresh brewing coffee. Times have changed…look what has happened to coffee makers!

Meet the new Keurig  – Keurig K475 Single Serve K-Cup Pod Coffee Maker

  1. Brews up to 12 oz cup using the K-cup pods
  2. Brews up to 30 oz using the k-carafe pods
  3. 70 oz water supply – brews up to 8 cups without having to refill

The Keurig concept of making coffee

Coffee making has come a long way since I was a kid. As I stated above, my memories are still fresh about my mother making coffee in the old aluminum coffee pot.

Today, it is so easy the night before I go to bed to fill the reservoir with water, pop a Keurig K-pod in the lid and wait for the morning. Crawling out of bed it is easy to push the button and smell the coffee brewing.

Every cup is fresh…not stale. Make just one cup at a time. Gone are the days in which you had to put your coffee in a thermos, or drink stale coffee that had been in the pot for 2 or 3 hours. Nothing is worse than drinking stale coffee.

The true beauty is that I can fix a fresh cup of tea, hot chocolate, coffee or just hot water for soup. Can’t do that in an aluminum coffee pot.

Pros and Cons of the Keurig


  1. Easy to use
  2. Can make hot chocolate, tea or even soup
  3. No wasted or stale coffee
  4. The ability to make many different kinds of coffee or tea
  5. Easy cleanup


  1. Expensive. Considerably more expensive than regular coffee unless you use the refill pods
  2. Noisy


I love my Keurig. I’m sure you will love yours also.  You can get yours here:

House alarm systems -the best one

More and more homes are being equipped with burglar and fire alarms.

What makes a great alarm system?

  1. Most important, it works!
  2. It is easy to use
  3. It is reasonable to own
  4. It is monitored by a reliable service

Most important, it works!

Amazingly, some alarm systems just don’t work properly. They are complicated. They are difficult to operate.

Sometimes, the alerts go off for no reason, or they don’t pick up when a door or window is opened.

Many times, the remote “fobs” just don’t work. You want an alarm system that you can depend on. You don’t want to spend time in trying to make sure it is set properly.

You don’t want to be away and find out your alarm went off accidentally and you can’t reset it.

I have recently found one that works 100% of the time!

I have found that SimpliSafe system is the most reliable, reasonable and less expensive system I have found. You will love it and it is so easy to operate.

It is easy to use

The last thing you want in an alarm system is one that is complicated.

You want a system that you can have a “Fob”, or can be used with a cell phone app.

You want a “Fob” so that you can walk out the door, push a button and the alarm is set. No complicated security codes. No running to the pad to disarm it.

You want a Fob or Phone app that you can push the button when you arrive home and disarm the alarm before you enter the house.

It’s reasonable to own.

I purchased a system from a well-known company a few years ago. It cost me $1,500 to install, and nearly $100 a month to monitor! Nearly sent me to the poor house!

The one I use now cost less than $300 and only $24.95 a month for professional monitoring. I installed it in less than an hour and didn’t pay anyone a penny to install it!

It must be monitored by a reliable company

I have 24/7 monitoring by a professional service who calls me if there is an alarm and if I don’t answer, they call the police. That’s the system you need.


The SimpliSafe alarm system is THE best system possible. You’ll love it.
