Oh, how about a Leviton. The old one could dim/turn off by turning it or turn it on/off by punching it. The granddaughters "punched" it one too many times too hard.

The new one just turns to turn on/off and dim.

After I installed it I showed the 3 ager that she didn't have to jump up and slam the hell out of the new one - just gently turn the knob.

So, I put her in charge of explaining how it was to be used to her sisters and ma-ma. She came up to me last week and said that her sisters caught on but ma-ma is still trying to "punch" it -

On this Memorial Day, I salute those men and women that gave all.

A special salute to my friends and fellow soldiers that knew, that did not come back from Vietnam.

I think it's you..... Or it could be that everyone is observing the "lockdown" rules, gone out playing golf, fishing, admiring strange 6 door cars, fixing fuse boxes, mowing neighbour's lawn, moving the 3rd brake light to new innovative locations, trying to get water out of diff, trying to open a car using a remote key fob, trying to start a car when the battery is dead, looking for every conceivable reason why the car is shite, or hacking the car to stick on a widebody kit, or driving a Hakone to different locations to see if the colour is really as dark as it appears in the photos, or wishing that they should have gone for the "real" Twin, a BRZeeeee...

BTW, I'm gonna try to start my car.. pop out to buy some onions and a packet of rocket chillies..

Mod bug is biting hard this weekend. I've probably filled a car-part shopping cart 3 times this weekend before backing out.

I observed social distancing rules while on the golf course. In fact, at the end of the round, we didn't even shake hands.

Not shaking hands at the end of a round is absolutely bizzare.

I had someone at the house giving us an estimate on some work last week. It was comical as we both keep doing the shake/retract thing as we met, then as we parted ways.

It is really weird. People who've met me know that I'm a real hugger. Some are probably relieved to know that I've been following the rules.
