LIGHTBULB UPDATE: So as promised, I got and installed some CREE LED bulbs. I put ‘em in a fixture in the media room that’s kind of hard to access, in the hopes that their long life will spare me some ladder work. (My previous hope in that department, CFL bulbs, didn’t pan out). The light looks good — Helen (who hates all CFLs) thought it looked great. I also installed a 60-watt equivalent GE LED bulb over our breakfast table. I liked the light from it a bit better, but Helen liked it less.
I’ll let you know how they turn out. Or you can just stock up on incandescents. I’ve done that, too . . . .
