As the summer solstice approaches (on 6/21, FYI), you're looking forward to three months of backyard entertaining — cocktails on the patio, shrimp on the barbie, movie night on the lawn. What you're not looking forward to? The ordeal of ferrying food, drink and supplies back and forth from the house. Elbowing the sliding glass door open while holding a platter of dogs and burgers, then rushing to shove it back in place before bugs get inside. Or gingerly trying to nudge the screen door aside with your big toe while attempting to bring your guests their margaritas...and inevitably, over time, putting a hole in that screen, incurring a costly repair or replacement and an invasion of mosquitoes into your home.
Let's put an end to this madness, shall we? What you need is the Magic Mesh Magnetic Screen Door. It's the ingenious, innovative and inexpensive — just $15! — answer to your problems.
Not surprisingly, it's been a big hit with Amazon shoppers, to the tune of 12,000-plus five-star reviews. "It's Magic!" proclaimed Captain Obvious (aka one happy shopper) "I purchased this Magic Magnetic Screen door for my back door that leads out to the deck. I needed something that made it easy to go in and out when I grilled out on the deck... My husband calls it The Transformer Screen Door because of the way it sounds when it closes. The magnets on the door are very strong and powerful."
Oh, yeah: the Magic Mesh is also a godsend for pet owners whose four-legged friends like to spend part of the day alfresco. "A Must Have!" gushed this flat dweller. "I bought this because a family member had one in their home and it seemed very practical for keeping bugs out without having to close your door, especially if you're in an apartment. I love it I love it I love it!! I have it on my patio door and best of all my dog can come and go as he pleases because he loves sitting outside on the patio. It was very easy to install — I literally did it in under 10 minutes."
"We live in Alaska; we have beautiful summers and long winters," related one northerner. "For the price of the Magic Mesh Screens, we simply install at the beginning of summer and take down in the fall when it gets windy. We absolutely love these screens. You simply just walk right through, hands-free. Our two dogs and cat have the option to walk onto the deck to soak up the sun whenever they choose."

A move by the British government to rip up post-Brexit trade arrangements in Northern Ireland is "illegal and unrealistic", the European Union's ambassador to the UK has warned. Speaking to Sky News' Sophy Ridge On Sunday programme, Joao Vale de Almeida argued steps being taken by Boris Johnson's administration over the Northern Ireland Protocol were "a road to nowhere". The differing views came as MPs prepare to debate the controversial Northern Ireland Protocol Bill on Monday.
