I'm 36 years old. Soon enough I`ll be 37. At this age I have knowledge that I have a few God given abilities, not many I thing but a few definitely God given. Unfortunately I have yet to figure out my purpose in life concerning God's plan. They are not particularly common. These special abilities that I have, I don't know how they may be used other than serving in ways that I can not see as methods God's need for me. I believe I was meant to marry Tracy and have Aaron and Paige with her. Other than that, I still don't know my primary purpose in my life on earth.

Who said anything about wiring anything? Hehe. Similar to the doorbell I installed for my grandma, these things don't necessarily need to be wired anymore.

Each light is powered by a small solar panel. This panel charges one AA rechargable battery every day. This is supposed to have enough juice to last 14 hours. The lights aren't connected to each other or to the power and can be moved anywhere you want them. Isn't technology cool?

A wireless doorbell is cool if you like it going off at random intervals for no reason... or at least a reason other than somebody being at the door ringing it. It's a really neat thing to give to somebody you want to be awakened at 3 AM for no legitimate reason... like, say, my brother. (I didn't get his for him; he got it himself, and it's probably a cheap model that doesn't actually have any connection between the ringer and the switch... it just goes off at random intervals and makes intelligence-challenged people *THINK* they have a doorbell... which, if you're the manufacturer, is a great scam. Wish I'd thought of it...)
