Lights! Action!

Sorry – it’s been busy around here. As I get older, the medical types seem to find more things they can poke, prod or test.

And to think I used to be on the OTHER side of the examination spectrum.

Poetic justice? Perhaps.

In the meantime, my wife found an idea online on how to convert a regular lamp to a cordless one. They sell LEDs (light emitting diodes) on tape; you just cut off what you need and save the rest for later.

So we took an old table lamp, placed the handy self-sticking led tape to the top and bottom of the lampshade (on the inside, of course), ran it through the lamp to some batteries, and voila! A cordless lamp.

Actually, more of a very bright night light.

However, it fits in with all my hurricane preparation stuff, but does so with style.

And my wife likes it.
