Ah, the forgotten Wednesdays. Why? Do you really want to remember the time you stepped in it right before heading to work? A sprinkler would have been handy right about then, except you stepped on that and broke it as well. What to do? Shake off the mid-week doldrums (and that little lawn sausage) by taking a peek inside your favorite and perhaps not-so-favorite gadgets. Grab your toolbox and get inspired!

- Unsolved mystery: Would Kinetico (water softening system) prolong sprinkler life while killing plant life?
