So, if you have kids that are 12 and under, make sure to take them to the Kids Zone by Lowe’s, located in the Crunch-Pak Hospitality Room on the the main floor of the Town Toyota Center! Workshops and How-to’s that you WON’T want to miss! Come and see what the Master Gardeners have to demonstrate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the show!

Christmas decorations and lights really get us in the holiday spirit. Before you get too far along, check out these safety tips for hanging Christmas lights:
•Only use lights that conform with safety standards and have been tested by a recognized testing laboratory.
•Check each strand of lights for damaged sockets or wires and loose connections. I best to toss damaged strands and buy new.
•Don’t overload extension cords and outlets! Only link 3 standard-size sets of lights per single extension cord.
•If you must have a metallic tree, don’t decorate it with electric lights. Electrocution may result.
•Outdoors lights must have exterior use labels.
•Fasten outdoor lights securely. Use insulated staples or rain gutter hooks.
•Plug all outdoor lights into ground fault interrupters circuits to avoid potential shocks and blown fuses.
•Unplug lights when going to sleep or leaving your home.

The 12th annual “Seattle Home Show 2” is coming up Oct. 8-10th. Are you going? It seems like a great deal for interested parties. It’s just $10 with exposure to hundreds of home and garden product displays. They’ll also have cooking demos, wine tasting and speakers like nationally-known Joey Green, guru of weird uses for brand-name products and Brian Santos “The Wall Wizard” sharing his painting expertise. With an online ticket purchase you receive free parking. All tickets come with a 1 year subscription to Better Homes and Gardens magazine and a second day pass in case you can’t fit it all in the first day. I thought about advertising at this event, but wasn’t sure how it sized up to Annual Seattle Home Show in the winter– running now for 67 years. Your thoughts?
