Whenever I need graph paper these days, usually for a woodworking project, I just goggle a template and print it off at home. You can find it in a number of scales. Works well for me.

That was my first inclination... but he uses 2-3 sheets per assignment... I did the cost of ink and paper vs cost of a pad of graph paper - with volume, buying pre-printed came out ahead.

I do the google a template and print my own thing for music paper though. The boys take piano lessons and sometimes are assigned to write their own compositions or want to do their own arrangements/modifications.... That's a low volume enough endeavor that it makes sense to just print as needed.


More orders today:
- digital alarm clock for older son (he says the one he has ticks too loud)
- flair felt tip pens - both sons lobbied to have them for school.
- new hair clippers... Our old clippers died while doing part of DS's hair cut... had to finish off with the flowbee. LOL.

Not the most recent thing I ordered, but one of the most useful: a hand held steamer.

Neato Robot Vacuum ---> Great for picking up dog hair. First robot vacuum we have ever owned. I would buy a Botvac Connected robot vacuum today.

Our hardwood floors always are clean.

I bought the Neato for that exact reason, suppose to be great for dog hair. Didn't find out that it doesn't work well on dark flooring until I got it and read the instructions. It doesn't tell you that online. My kitchen flooring is light colored and it has no problem navigating. My dining room floor is dark wood and living room is dark carpeting and it seems to get confused. Even tried it out in our garage and as soon as it gets off the concrete and starts on the black carpet rubber mats it seems to lose navigation. Hope you have better luck with yours.

I was thinking that too. We want the 'rest of the story'!

And how can it be lost? It sounds like you know exactly where it is - right at the bottom of that elevator shaft. I'm confused?

My girlfriend has a Roomba and has no problem with her Roomba going from light to dark flooring. The main reason I bought the Neato was a review saying that it picked up pet hair better. Get this, I don't have a pet but was planning on a new furry buddy when my husband got sick.

The story is that we went to Myrtle Beach a couple of weeks ago, staying on the 9th floor of a 20 story timeshare building. I took the ROKU with me to see if we could get it to work while traveling away from home. We were leaving very early in the morning and had all our luggage and several plastic storage bins of "stuff" stacked on one of those luggage carts. The ROKU plus remote was packed in a plastic storage box on top of the pile on the luggage cart. As we were struggling to get the luggage cart turned thru the door to the elevator the storage box containing the ROKU fell off the pile and hit half in and half out of the elevator. Of course the lid to the storage container popped off and everything inside spilled out. The ROKU remote was small enough that it slipped thru the gap where the elevator door closes. I could hear the remote hitting on the way down.

I figured it would be waste of time trying to get someone from maintenance to try to retrieve it, besides it was about 6:30 AM and I doubt anyone was around that early in the morning. It might have been broken anyway. The replacement remote was just under $7.00 with free shipping thru Amazon Prime. And now you know the rest of the story.

A pair of 4"x4" poly deck post sleeves and end caps. I buried it 30" in the ground and placed my bird feeder post into it. Now the post is removable for the summer if desired.
