A 10' x 13' green screen. Eldest son is having fun editing/doing goofy stuff with video editing. He's now mad at me because I said it couldn't be hanging in the front window full time... only when in use. 15 year olds!

I ordered, but haven't received, Falcone's annisette toast. I usually order Stella D'ora annisette toast for the Italian Cream Cake recipe, but it wasn't prime and wouldn't arrive till next week. DH's birthday is this weekend, and that's the cake he requested. It is not available at local stores - not even the Italian specialty ones.

A $15 case for the new gold iPad Air 2 that I received yesterday, from elsewhere. I am loving my new iPad. Anyway, back on topic, here's the case:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ilpage_o00_s00

It is being sent via Prime shipping, and was originally supposed to arrive today. But they sent it via USPS, so it will arrive tomorrow. Not that it matters, I suppose.

In the same package I'll be getting some more push-on quick connect adaptors, to replace the order above that was cancelled on me.

A set of four LED light tubes to replace the 3' T-12 fluorescent bulbs in our under-counter kitchen light fixtures. I replaced the ballasts in these fixtures a few years ago but once again they've started humming so loudly that it is irritating. Instructions say I'll have to remove/wire around the ballasts so that the LED lights get 110v, but that can't be any more difficult than replacing the ballasts a second time.

In the "general humor/funny jokes" department....

I just noticed that right now Amazon tracking shows it as arriving tomorrow, and also says on the same page that it is "out for delivery".

Yes, it does. And, now you have viewed it thanks to Midpack posting an image of it.

Meadbh, since you have shown an interest in the Punkiss® Cage Cutout Bralette Padded Seamless Sports Bra Bustier Crop Top you should know that it comes in black, pink, baby pink and white, one size fit all (really?) and costs $14.99.

edit to add: And I really did purchase one (in black).

Bully sticks for the fur kid. If you're not familiar what they're made of, Google it. I work from home and am fairly certain I am the only person in my company who has a bully stick in my pencil cup.

Not a bad price. I have 2 fluorescent ceiling fixtures than need new ballast. Maybe an opportunity to switch. How complicated is installation?

UPS delivered them shortly after I posted. Simple instructions, took less than 15 minutes to install the first one:

- remove three screws to get access to the ballast, remove the 110 wires from the ballast and wire one directly to each end of the bulb clips, disconnect and secure all the wires from the clips to the ballast (I left the ballast in place) and re-assemble. Insert new LED bulb, replace the cover and you're done.

Works great - and dead silent.

Thanks, I'm going to look into this. I guess it helps if you know what you're doing. I need to see it done on youtube first.

It is really simple. What you end up with is one 110 wire running to one end of the tube socket and the other 110 wire running to the socket on the other end - plus a ground wire to the metal fixture. Everything else is disconnected.

I recently purchased a Bosch 4100 table saw so yesterday I ordered from Amazon a left side support extension, a rear outfeed support extension and a dust collector bag. The extensions will be really handy when I start cutting 4X8 sheets of plywood to line my new garage.

My local Costco carries these LED florescent replacement tubes.
