A reliable source of good, honest, straight up, unsweetened/flavoured ~10%MF yogurt? Costco's got honey-sweetened crap, and my local Safeways are always sold out completely. It's driving me nuts!

If you're in North Burnaby, perhaps Buy Low on Broadway? Where Kam Mun Bakery and the RC Helicopter place is.

Hey, the new Super Value is coming soon. Across from the golf course. Too bad No Frills didn't get the contract. I was so hoping for that.

BTW, Graeme, I popped my Cockney Kings cherry on Monday. It was good.......... the first time usually is, LOL.

Pharmasaves used to carry a variety of large syringes as they used to deal with animal pharmaceutics as well. I haven't been to one in years, but I got a few from them to bleed my mountain bike brakes.

Yes, PA had it for dirt cheap during one of their sales events.

Only problem with the assorted size box is you don't always need the odd sizes and you don't always get the right shrink ratio type or enough of the colours you want.

Also, don't forget to keep them away from sunlight. Sunlight is not good for shrink tubing. At least that's what I've been told. Must be a UV thing.

Princess does have the multi-size kits, but they also have individual sizes with shrink ratios listed. Even non-sale prices should be a lot better than RP.

127-piece kit currently on sale for $4.99: 127 pc Heat Shrink Tubing | Princess Auto

Be careful with those - if your car has lights that dim rather than just shutting off, LEDs can cause weird effects...

Dim as in adjustable dim of the lights. Or when they are shutting down they dim till they are fully off.

The lights in the Dodge dim when I leave the truck and lock it, they dim out slowly.

sometimes when they dim they provide a low voltage, but voltage never completely stops. That voltage isn't enough to power a regular bulb but because LED's are such low power you get a glow coming from the LED's -- almost like ambient lighting but its accidental ... happened in my car, I didn't mind it, so I just left it lol

The ones that dim gradually until they're out.

Not exactly.

The dimming is not accomplished by lowering the voltage, it's done by pulsing the power to the light. Because incandescent filaments build up to full brightness over time (a few dozen milliseconds), and go dark at a similar rate when power is removed, typical light dimmers cycle the power on-and-off quickly - an 80% on/20% off cycle will dim slightly, 50% on/off will dim further, 20% on/80% off will be very dim.

When you do this with LED fixtures that aren't designed for it, you just get a flashing effect until the power shuts off entirely.

It works the same with household dimmers, which is why most don't recommend use with fluorescent lights; this is why if you want to replace those bulbs with CFL or LED, you have to be sure to get the "dimmable" types of bulbs that will compensate for it.

There was a thread about this in a Jeep forum a couple years ago where a guy tried to add some LED footwell lighting to his Patriot and ran into the same issues. Since Jeep is currently made by Chrysler, I would expect your truck to have similar if not identical lighting, and probably suffer from the same problem.

Not saying don't do it, just saying, be aware of the issue and be prepared for it not to work as expected.

I was at home Depot yesterday and they had boxes for sale. But before you buy look for a busy shipping warehouse or shipping office and usually their cardboard container outside will be full with boxes.
