Ok Google--more cool lighting control
Lighting control--the ability to adjust the quality and level of light for specific situations in a given room-- not only enhances certain experiences, it also saves energy by adjusting usage appropriately. Lutron, manufacturer of light and shade control products has recently announced expansion of its products to integrate with Google Assistant through products such as Google Home, Pixel phone and Android phones with native Google Assistant. We're already a big fan of Lutron; adding another virtual assistant is another cool reason to consider this company.
...And now for something completely retro
In 1933, the drive-in movie theater was invented by Richard Hollingshead. After studying people's buying habits, he learned that movies were the last thing to be given up (after food, clothing and autos). He started experimenting with the idea of an outdoor theater in his backyard in Riverton, New Jersey with a projector sitting on the hood of his car.  If you'd like to go back in time, or experience a drive-in movie for the first time, there are still some around--take a look.  
"Stuff doesn't make you happy, but it's hard to remember how unhappy you are when you are surrounded by spectacular stuff!"
