The laser printer went to the Habitat for Humanity ReStore yesterday with four -- count 'em, four! -- halogen lamps, a steam iron, and a bunch of other excess electric and electronic gadgets.

I loathe halogen lamps. They generate a great deal of heat, and the bulbs are a nuisance -- they come in several types that are sometimes hard to find, and they are fiddly to handle. When a lamp takes bulbs that may or may not be available for purchase within half an hour's drive of the front door, and replacing said bulb means taking the lamp apart with a screwdriver and may entail burning one's fingers, that lamp is a Problem, and that's Problem with a P that rhymes with T that stands for Trash.

So now we are both (wirelessly) using an office-type ink-jet printer that has not given a lick of trouble in three years, and the Glory Hole has a bit more swing space.

Which is a good thing, as Himself came back from the market on Sunday with a huge plastic keg of maple syrup that will keep us going till next Easter, if not beyond. It needs about a square foot of shelf space, fortunately not in the refrigerator until the seal is cracked. That will be a while, as we're still working on the last keg Himself brought home from the market ...
