Your words always are so in depth & so very meaningful. Well said!

My, you are very busy. Happy Birthday to your dh! Just wanted to share with you, we made a tiramisu for a gal on a catering that was having an Italian theme for a rehearsel dinner for her son's wedding. She froze the tiramisu & scooped it up with a mini ice-cream scoop then dipped them in chocolate, they were absolutely delicious!

We just got back from shopping. Stirling's job just sent him a powerful PC and four flat screen monitors. This is for a "video wall". Stirling is mounting it all on plywood which will be mounted on the wall of his office, which is cinder block covered with wall board.

He needs brackets for the monitors. His job sent him some jury-rigged gizmos that aren't so hot. We looked for mounting brackets for a monitors. Yikes! A crappy one was $15. The demonstrator was stuck together and we couldn't get it apart. We wouldn't want that to happen while a monitor is mounted on the plywood. After that, they were ~$40 and up. Work isn't going to reimburse $160+ for this.

While we were at Reno Depot getting the right size and shape of screws, we found the perfect, small bracket. It was in use in the store. They don't sell them.

Sounds like a great PC set up Taxy

Shame the brackets are going to cost so much
