I picked up one of those "Braun" HF lights as well. I haven't used it yet but it sure is bright and the magnet makes it easy to attach to trucks, cars, lawn mowers, and snowblowers. I like it.

That house is really quite beautiful in an unusual sort of way. It makes you step back and begin to examine in detail. I like it.

Another advantage is you don't have to worry about termites!
