Pft, talk to me when you own a 17 footer. I was on my tall ladder all weekend painting my deck. The 6 foot A frame ladder was handy to reach under the deck, but I needed the height for the top of it.

Our house is a ranch... 17 feet would be overkill

You could build a secondary story if you had a taller ladder.

I'm glad I don't need a 17 foot ladder. I can reach that high all by myself

Bought this ladder at $60 and it was totally worth it...now it's down to $50 - free in-store pickup.

We talked about LED bulbs here before. I had 2 can lights bulbs burn out this month so I invested in some dimmable LED bulbs. The only problem is they are too bright.

I like to have the lights above the TV off at night and the lights above the desk on the lowest setting just so you can see. These new bulbs are too bright at this setting.

They were 50% off. 4pk of can light bulbs for $12.

New LED left. Old right.

They have lower wattage dimmable. The ones of the left I just got, but got too high of wattage equivalent. They are noticably brighter.

My eyes! They burn!

The bulbs look good at full power. They match the existing bulbs, but in the dimmer its too noticeable. I ended up putting LED on 7/11 bulbs and old bulbs on the dimmer. Maybe I'll shop around for others, but probably not

Might as well wait until August when the 2018 ones start hitting the lots.
