The Best Laid Plans

Y’know I had plans to get a lot of work done this weekend then I ended up just doing small projects around the house that just kept turning up and needing done. Then of course those projects turned out to be more difficult than they should have been. I guess that’s to be expected when you live in a 100+ year old house right?

I figured today I’d be able to get some work done. Took my kids to school, went and got my car inspected for 8am, I get home about 9:15am and find my house is cold. Yes my 3 year old furnace died and I come to find that it’s out of warranty. Well there is a warranty on the parts, but not the labor and it costs $89 just to walk in my front door that’s not including the actual work to be done.

I can’t win, it’s always something…

NewerTech iSesamo Repair Tool Review




I’m a tinkerer, or someone that likes to do things myself, and I also like to take things apart and see what makes them tick. Many times doing this I accidentally damage things sadly, especially things with thin seams on them. Today I’ve got a quick review of a what I consider a must-have product for anyone like me, it’s called the iSesamo and it’s from NewerTech. The iSesamo is a tool, but it doesn’t look like a tool really, but it is. This little tool will let you open things like iPods and anything else with very tight seams without damaging the housing. The iSesamo is metal so it can be used over and over again, and it’s simple but yet it’s invaluable to the DIYer.
