Alexander Hamilton’s Birthday — Today, January 11: Event Not Marked By A Google Doodle.

Yes, today, January 11th is his birthday. He was born January 11, 1755.

Yes, it is the musical, a runaway success, that has made him truly famous — though he was a Founding Father & the 1st United States Secretary of the Treasury.

There has NEVER been a Google Doodle for Alexander Hamilton. It appears that Google avoids doing political figures — though there have been Google Doodle’s Nelson Mandela & Martin Luther King. I would think they would make an exception when it came to the Founding Fathers and Winston Churchill.

When we moved into this house nearly 10-years ago we had a lot of multi-light, adjustable track lights installed. There are two units upstairs in the space we use as our office/library.

These track lights take the small GU10 bulbs. At the time I got these units I never realized how difficult it is to remove and install these DAMN bulbs! You have to push, turn and pull and given the size of the fixed glass shades of these units there isn’t much room to get your fingers around the bulbs! Replacing these have been a bloody pain. So much so that I have gone for months without replacing dead bulbs.

The other day I was thinking about replacing them altogether and get some LED track lighting. That was NOT as easy as I though — getting the amount of wattage, 250W (equivalent), I sought.

Then I came across these LED GU10 replacement bulbs. Cheap enough to try.

And I did. The top ones, KINGSO 10s, with the metal heats fins, appealed to me. There are also higher output, 5W (60W equivalent) as opposed to the 3.5W (50W) ones. On Tuesday I received all the bulbs. Love the KINGSO ones. Brilliant white light.

I have tried a suction cup. But that didn’t work. Might get another one.

Check out this video. Will have to try that though I am not keen on having residue on a new bulb.
