The dimmer switch from above was a piece-o'-cake to install. Disconnect the two wires from the old switch, connect the same wires to the new switch, and put it back in the wall. Snap on the new face plate and done. I already had the app on my phone from installing previous Caseta switches, so set up took 20 seconds. Now I can turn it on or off or dim it from anywhere. (Excuse the awful white balance. The switch is actually white.)

Lutron switches run on only 2 wires?

These do. The new Lutron Caseta Diva switches. They have a 3rd wire if you want to use them in a 3-way setup, but this was single pole, so I just used the 2 wires. My switch boxes are metal and they're grounded, so I didn't even need the green ground wire.

That surprises me too. You'd think they'd need the 3rd to power it when it was off like most others.

I have 2 of the old remote Lutron left in my house. I've replaced everything else with KASA as I've needed too. These have survived the swap because they are within eyesight of my Harmony Hub with can control them, so I can still control them with voice or app. If these are like mine - you set the high limit and one press takes them to that level and a double click takes them to 100%. They work very well. I have my low set on very low and use it for my "movie" setting and 100% when I need to see. But I have vaulted ceilings so even 100% is not overpowering.

Great switches - they have served me well even with my "smart" workaround. LOL

Since you are obviously big on those, how do you get them to last? I feel like when ever we use them they only last a week or two, then no smell.

If you like the Puma Bmw stuff the Puma outlets usually have crazy deals on it. Picked up some nice m shirts for under $20 the other day. Jackets were sub $50.

Same here! Mine never last. But they have great scents. I am using the last few I have and will be going with ScentAir or Pura. My friends have 2 ScentAir's in their home and the whole home smells amazing.

Thanks for the question. Just to confirm, you are using these specific ones like me from B&BW?
I know their are tons of retail brands like Airwick, Glade, etc.

If so, I've definitely tried many of these in various flavors. From what I've noticed, there some tasty are longer lasting than others. Here's my list of lasting ones:
Pumpkin Pecan Waffle
Apple Pie (nearly all Apple varieties)
Holiday scents in general
Floral scents

I use some of the Holiday, Laundry Day, Mahogany Teakwood, Black Tie, Flannel, Sweater Weather etc, and I feel like the first week they are perfect, then the scent gets so faint, to almost non-existent even with half a bottle left. I think it is the wallplug itself, good for one-two FULL bottle uses then it is like I described earlier.

Latest purchase. Needed a new soft side cooler. New latch system is better than the previous version. Got a Camino bag too for random stuff; pool/beach towels, etc.

Also, creeping in the back is a Flex PXE 80 12 polisher which is great for little touch ups and tighter areas that need polishing. This thing is amazing.

iPhone 13 Pro Max

I wanted to get another year out of it, but I dropped my iPhone 11 on the last day of our Disney World trip and the worthless case and screen protector did nothing.

Was going to wait a week or two and get an iPhone 14 Plus, but looked at the 13 Pro Max and went with it instead. They both have the same processor, but this has the better camera and higher refresh rate for the same price.

I added a couple items to my detailing kit and will try to finally eliminate those swirl marks. If not, it may be time to respray the hood and roof.

Didn't exactly bought it but claim it under warranty. I've been riding since 1963 and I never heard of a broken rear hub.

The bearing cup (grears side) came appart, you guess it "Made in China"...
