In other “RHONJ” doings

Filed under: solar lighting — Tags: , — solaroutdoorlight @ 7:04 am

There are some things I wish I could forget ever having seen. One of them was the two patches of flesh (and some underlying fat) that a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon removed from Jacqueline Laurita’s tummy, glimpsed in Sunday night’s episode. One hunk of the trimmed belly fat even sported a heart tattoo. If you were zipping around the channels and stopped at that sight, you might have thought you were watching “Forensic Files,” not “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

“How did you all handle seeing my cutlets on the table during surgery?” Jac asked in her cast blog, which she posted in the wee hours of Monday morning.

Answer: Not well, Jac.

She actually addressed the tummy tuck (and neck lift she got at the same time) at length in that blog post:

“My decision to get a tummy tuck was easy. I always wanted one since I gave birth to Nicholas and lost all of my baby weight. My body just didn’t bounce back this time like it did in the past. Dieting and exercising couldn’t fix that mess you saw. It looked like an elephant leg. LOL! It didn’t matter how beautiful my husband, family, or friends told me I was. I wasn’t feeling it. That skin had to go, and so did that tattoo! It was cute because inside the heart was the letter “C” on top of, and connecting to, a cursive letter “L”. I had that tattoo made for my husband while we were engaged. Well…that’s ONE way to get rid of a tattoo! LOL!”

And then she ventured into the realm of Way Too Much Information:

“Before my tummy tuck, I always tricked my husband with sexy mood lighting and cute, short lingerie dresses that I could lift up the bottom and pull my boobies out of the top, trying to be sexy, while secretly hiding my mid-section. He had no idea that mess was there. I hid it well. I was embarrassed of it. Now you know why! It’s gone now, so who cares.They are called “solar” panels or solar module because most of the time, the most powerful source of light available is the Sun.”

Her husband “had no idea that mess was there.” But now he, and the world, have seen that hidden zone up close.

On a brighter note, since the surgery was in California, Jac — and RHONJ fans — got to see her daughter, Ashlee Holmes again. In New Jersey, she seemed eternally bratty, spoiled and ungrateful. But in this episode, Ashlee not only looked beautiful, but she seemed so much more mature — more so than her mother, actually, which Jacqueline even acknowledged, after Ashlee urged her mom, in vain, not to have a shot of tequila the night before surgery: “I feel like it’s role reversal. It’s like she’s being the responsible one and I’m on spring break,” Jac said.

Clearly, it was easier for Ashlee to grow up once she left the Garden State — and RHONJ. (In her latest cast blog, Jac wrote that Ashlee “is actually staying with us in New Jersey for awhile, because she decided to go to makeup school in New York.” Let’s just hope the old Ashlee won’t re-emerge.

One other Laurita-related note. Back home in Franklin Lakes, poor little C.J.Know about led high bay conversion kit and Bi-xenon HID kit. said he wasn’t feeling good. He also felt hot to the touch, according to his dad, Chris Laurita – a diagnosis that was confirmed by his sister, Caroline Manzo,The world’s largest independent online retailer for solar lighting, street lights & outdoor lighting fixtures. who then said she knew what was wrong with C.J. He had strep. Unless I heard wrong, Caroline said she could “smell it on his breath.” (Who needs thermometers or throat-cultures when Dr. Manzo is in the house?)

In other “RHONJ” doings:

They showed more of the conversations that we’d seen last week between the Lauritas and the Giudices at The Brick House in Wyckoff. The ever-composed Chris Laurita didn’t seem to react when Juicy Joe reiterated his (ignorant) views on autism. When the women, after having a heart-to-heart, rejoined the men at a table, Jac apologized to Juicy for what she’d said about his having cheated on Teresa. “I’ve forgotten it already. I really have,” said Juicy, whom we now know had far more important things to worry (and think) about.

Gia Giudice and Uncle Joe Gorga, her godfather, had a heart-to-heart, too. “Didn’t you realize that when you and my mom were tit for tat, it distanced everyone?” Gia asked. It sounded like a scripted line, but there was, of course, much truth behind it.

LED Waves Redesigns Dimmable LED Recessed Lights

Filed under: solar lighting — Tags: — solaroutdoorlight @ 2:37 am

Original Equipment Manufacturer LED Waves has announced a development that has made it easier to dim their popular line of LED recessed light fixtures.

The company’s selection of downlights includes the PR15 Ultrathin – a low profile 13 Watt LED equivalent to a 50 Watt halogen down light – and the Midtown 2.0 and 2.1. The Midtown series is made in the USA exclusively by LED Waves; both fixtures are 9 Watt LED spot lights comparable to 50 Watt halogen MR16 bulbs.

LED Waves’ recessed lights are available in both dimmable and non-dimming units. Standard non-dimming units ship with a line voltage LED driver, which connects to the junction box in the ceiling. The Midtown’s LED driver is ETL listed to UL standard 1598.

In the past, customers who wished to dim these LED recessed light fixtures needed to connect each one to a 12v Buck Puck LED driver, in addition to a dimmable LED power supply. A newly designed all-in-one dimmable LED driver takes the place of this additional hardware. This also eliminates an extra wiring connection point.

With this new dimming configuration, up to twenty LED recessed light fixtures may be installed in a series and controlled by a single dimmer. These systems are compatible with standard incandescent and halogen dimmers; see site for recommended products.

The pricing and line voltage wiring instructions for the non-dimming LED down lighting units remain the same. Dimmable and non-dimmable units should be installed only by a licensed electrical contractor or other qualified building personnel, as specified by local safety codes.

Featuring a strip of LED lights the lamp gives fluid light and movement via two sets of LED lights. These can be arched, bent and folded to produce light in a variety of positions and are held together via a magnetic base giving endless flexibility. The light designers Marco De Santi and Alessandro Paoletti explained:

“Flexible products with a high coefficient of interaction allow us to establish an emotional attachment to the product…One that goes beyond the value of the object itself.”

The news of such an innovative design is welcomed by LED specialist supplier Simple Lighting Company which supplies a range of LED strip lights, LED plinth lights and LED tape lights. On hearing of the new invention an expert member of the team added:

“The new flexible ribbon desk lamp is a perfect example of just how flexible and unique LED light bulbs can be. They are used for multiple everyday items as well as those that are in the forefront of design innovation such as this lamp. We hope that the design is met with the same excitement from the consumer as it was by our experts here at Simple Lighting Company.”

The company has grown considerably in recent years and supplies over 4000 products, specialising in LED lighting, LED tape lights, LED strip lights as well as indoor and outdoor lighting. Click on their website hmhid for more information.
