Robotic Vacuum Cleaners: Perfect for Cleaning Pool
A friend of mine bought a robotic vaccum cleaner as a gag.
It's actually pretty fun to watch it semi randomly roaming around
the room. It seems to have about 15 different direction change
sequences, which allow it to eventually cover about 98% of a
small area before the battery runs out.
Well, this friend has a pool table and one day when the table
was looking a little shabby, we decided to try using the robotic
vacuum cleaner on it. The thing did an absolutely awesome job.
Fun to watch too, or did I already mention that? Well pretty soon
we started seeing how good an 8 ball player the unit was. We set
up a rack, and let the robot do its thing.
It eventually broke the rack and proceeded to clean up the
table. While pushing balls in all over the place, it's tiny
little brushes were scooping up all the ashes, dog hairs, and
other detritus that accumulate on tables over time. Then it
dawned on me, while this relatively cheap $150 cleaner wasn't too
useful in a typical house, it was perfect for the tedious job of
cleaning 10 tables at a pool hall.
While you may still need a brush to get under the edges, just
sweep the mess out in the middle and let your little robot take
care of it. It also seems to raise the nap of the felt, so you
should start out with the vacuum mode on high.

Embroidery Designs and
Thread Colors for Machine Embroidery Sewing
I wish that I had a nickel for each time I've been asked

brands - I would be a very wealthy woman! Everyone seems to
think that someone is going to knock on their door with a
search warrant if they don't use the exact colors a
designer used in the test sew out or the color numbers used
in the stitch directions. Not so - if you don't "think
outside the box" and use colors that you enjoy, or just
prefer, you are really missing the real fun of machine
embroidery! Come to think of it, I don't believe that I've
ever used the exact color on any design I've ever stitched
in 6+ years-some because I didn't have the exact color
& others due to a dislike of the colors used.
