IN DALLAS, SUPERBOWL PARTIES ARE SERIOUS: BE READY WITH A SMARTER HOME (NATURALLY, INCLUDING HOME THEATER AND SPORTS PACKAGES)

THE BIG GAME

The food, fans, fun, or the Superbowl. Hosting at your home is easier than any major holiday. It's one night. The kids don't need a sitter. It's socially acceptable to serve hot dogs. No one argues over what channel or show to watch. Most guests' expectations are a nice TV set up. And beer. A clean house is a bonus. But all sports fans appreciate the immediacy, the crisp HD vision and HD sound, and wifi that delivers at a nonstop 40-yard sprint. Have it year-round.

Range of a Sports Fan for Your Home Theater

  • NFL RedZone
  • March Madness
  • Other college sports (if your kid chooses rugby at college, that's probably not on CBS primetime)
  • Hockey
  • Basketball
  • Golf Simulators
  • Kinetic and stationary gaming setups (think Switch)
  • Gym (more on that in a minute)

WIDE (RADIO) RECEIVER: ORIGINAL SUPERBOWL FOR LIVE TV

In 1919, one of the first-ever real-time sports broadcasts took place in Dallas. A broadcast announcer read telegrammed updates of a football game over the radio! It wasn't technically live (and someone did the same thing for a Jayhawks game in 1911) but more sports were about to follow.

WATCHING THE GAME HAS CHANGED

A college baseball match between Columbia and Princeton in 1939 was the first sports tv broadcast. There were fewer than 1,000 TVs at the time. Sports is now available on a host of screens (more on that in a minute) and a host of streams.

A long-running dispute between the NFL and a Pennsylvania man over a rough home recording of Superbowl 1 may be about to end--if the Kickstarter works. That original Superbowl 1 scrum was the Green Bay Packers versus the Kansas City Chiefs. And it took place in this year's hosting city: sunny LA.

Healthy Eating, Smart Home Appliances, and Your New Year's Nutrition Resolutions

Healthy New Year's Resolutions  

If you've made it this far for New Year's resolutions, congratulations. If you tripped and fell, slow motion is better than no motion. If you haven't made healthy habits resolutions, healthier food and easier cooking are still great to have.

Healthy nutrition and a healthy weight can be easier when you're more balanced physically and otherwise. Reducing the effort to keep a 21st century home going means using the best parts of modern technology and automation. Think about 15 minutes per day--15 minutes--added to your disposable time because the lights, the heat, the shades, the alarm system are exactly as you planned without a single flip of the switch.

Self-care and avoiding junk food sounds a lot easier then, huh?

Eating & Nutrition: Food as An Experience

Texas Smart home Garage, Foyer, and Mudroom Possibilities

Texas smart home garage, foyer, and mudroom possibilities

Your garage can be your launching and landing pad for home. (Mudrooms have made a comeback, more on that in a minute.) But it's easy for the garage to become a dusty location for cars that's usually very hot or cold.

It's where tools, bikes, and sometimes refrigerators only used for drinks go. It's the outer boundary for wearing pajamas. But the garage can be more. 

The First Shall be Last: Garages as Arrival and Departure

The garage is the last thing you see leaving home and the first place you see getting back. It's a space that might need a plan.

There's a lot of design that can be added to the garage for a nicer look. Pulling into a tidy space when you're starting or ending the day adds a lot to the home itself.

The garage is also a major boundary for your home. Front doors still have style. They determine where your mail goes and can even add value to your home. But how often do you the front door?
