Abstract: A system for cultivating tropic plants in a planting area having a ground surface. A hole is initially dug to a depth of approximately three feet below the ground surface. A layer of ceramic tiles is established at the bottom of the hole, and is covered with a layer of small rocks. A tank having a plurality of wick assemblies extending upward therefrom is positioned within the hole. A layer of vegetative cuttings and manure is established thereabove. Then fertile topsoil originally from the hole is replaced in a mix with sand to a depth of substantially one foot. The contents are allowed to settle and are thoroughly watered, the tank is filled using a fill hose. The exotic plants is then planted in potting soil thereabove, and is maintained and allowed to thrive by the unique moisture, nutritive and thermodynamic properties established by the various layers. When necessary, the tank is refilled through the fill hose.

Abstract: A holiday light storage system, for storing holiday string lights, having a central hub and extension hubs. The central hub has a pair of parallel flange disks and a core extending perpendicularly between the flange disks. The core allows adjustment of the relative distance between the flange disks. End bores extend through the flange disks coaxially into the core. The extension hubs each have a flange ring and an extension core. The extension core has a threaded end opposite the flange ring for attaching into one of the end bores of the central core. A handle is selectively axially attachable in one of the end bores. The system is configurable by the user according to the storage needs of the user.
Abstract: An in-wall retractable water hose assembly for retracting and storing a water hose, having a housing located within a dwelling and an insulated front access door for providing access to the hose from outside the dwelling. A reel assembly is mounted within the housing on which the water hose is spooled, and a motor connected to the reel assembly effects rotation of the reel. A power box is positioned within the housing and has a power switch in communication with the motor. A movable casing is mounted on the reel assembly, the casing having a channel for accommodating the water hose. Movement of the casing along the reel assembly determines the positioning of the hose and maintains an even distribution of the hose along the reel. A stabilizing bar prevents wobbling of the casing during retraction of the water hose.
Abstract: A laptop computer support board with lamp for supporting a laptop computer and providing light over the computer. The device has a support board on which the keyboard bottom surface rests, a lamp assembly, and a vent portion for allowing dispersion of the heat emitted from the computer. The support board has stoppers secured to the board top surface for wedging the computer in place. The vent portion is positioned between the stoppers, having venting holes extending through the board, and a raised platform extending upward from the board top surface. The lamp assembly is secured to the board top surface and is adjustable and collapsible. Once collapsed, a lamp cover may be placed over the lamp assembly.
Abstract: An artificial fish habitat for use with a recreational fishpond. The fish habitat is provided as at least one section, having a front panel, a rear panel, a top panel, and a substantially rectangular holder basket which is fitted into an opening within the top panel. For larger ponds, several of the interlocking sections are fitted into one another, thereby providing a fish habitat of larger overall dimensions. A plurality of slotted openings within the panels provide ready egress and ingress for fish. The holder basket is adorned with artificial grasses, thereby providing shelter for juvenile fish. The artificial fish habitat provides shelter to the fish from direct sunlight and also provides a sanctuary from natural predators. The fish habitat includes an aerator hose, which may be selectively attached to an external aerator pump to increase the concentration of dissolved oxygen within the water of the fishpond.
Abstract: A hand cart cargo netting attachment containing a quantity of netting, the attachment for use with a standard hand cart. The attachment has a housing holding the netting and a mounting plate attached to the hand cart. A mounting plate secures to the hand cart and the housing is mated to the rear surface of the mounting plate. The netting is pulled out from the housing interior, at one side of the housing, is wrapped around the hand cart and any packages held thereon, and is then secured to the opposite side of the housing. Once the netting is secured in place, the packages are themselves secured onto the cart.
Abstract: A draining soap dish for multiple bars of soap including a top plate having a plurality of rectangular shaped opening's therethrough in a spaced relationship.
