My Big Video Debut

Oh mercy. I’m keeping this short and sweet y’all. I promised you all I would show you the outcome of the LED bulbs I wrote about the other day in the form of a video.  And let’s just say that “vlogging” is not in my blogging future, and there is a 99.9% chance you will never see a vlog from me again.  You will soon understand why, and you will thank me. It’s so awful it’s hilarious and I hope it gives you a good laugh. You have to watch all the way through the end for the bloopers.  Yes, there are bloopers.
