Lazy Frying?

7. March 2015


Things don’t have to be “techy” to appear on LazyAutomation… Lately, I have been converting over to cast iron pans for cooking on the stovetop. They are easy to maintain, extremely cheap (a 12″ cast iron frying pan will run you about $20) and will last FOREVER. My interest in cast iron began with a […]

You may have read my previous post on my whole house audio system. I have been very happy with it over the years, but lately, the ability to EASILY choose which music I wanted to listen to AND be able to listen to it anywhere I want has been a struggling cause. My system has been […]

Humidors, Cigars and… Lazy Automation???

5. March 2009


Ok, I admit it… I love a good cigar. Wait, let me correct that. I love a great cigar. Friends turned me on years ago to cigars and ever since then, I enjoy sitting back with a stoagie and a nice bottle of Port wine. The problem is, if you are going to buy a […]
