invest in pig tail CF lighting, a dollar saved is a dollar earned.
I stopped at a speciality battery store yesterday to buy a strange one I needed for the alarm system, and the store has these giant boxes of CF bulbs, giving them away with any purchase (got me one), along with this info:
1 CF @3.75 burns $14.30 of energy, total cost $18.05. It may take up to 10 Incandescent bulbs to last as long as a CF, 10 X $1 = $10.00 buring $82.50 of energy, total cost $92.50.
The stock market does not pay those kinds of profit to the small investor. We have lots of CF's, and I can tell you our energy bill is lower than it was a few years ago, my wife keeps every damn bill, it's easy to check.
