Make Your Own Spaceship or Submarine

Got a garage full of broken electronics? Turn them into your child's dream toy! Broken remotes, radios, telephones, smoke detectors, and the like may seem like so much junk to you, but to a child they're the makings of a spaceship, a time machine, or a submarine!

Just mount the stuff on some plywood and let their imaginations soar.

We can put broken electronics on a pad at the county convenience site and they are picked up for recycling.


I have an old TV and video player beside my treadmill and I watch a movie while I walk. The time flies by and makes the walk more enjoyable.

For those of us who no longer have kids at home. see if you can find a local "e-waste" day in your city. Our town has one or two a year, and we've gotten rid of bunch of old, obsolete things like keyboards, tvs, boom boxes, etc.
