Green will cost you some Green

A man's house is his castle. I have been setting up the new condo since I returned from my asian excursion. I am pretty sure I explained the fiasco of getting cable into the place. Well, I have unpacked the big Mac and bought a new router. an airport extreme as a matter of fact. It wasn't working very well, until tonight. I am now able to sign on with the laptop. Now I am blogging from the awesome couch. But that is not what this is about. Today I decided to change the light bulbs in the house. I went with the energy efficient bulbs. Well with two hanging light fixtures and 3 sets of three lights, (100 watts each) I thought this could save me some money. Well $90 later, it better. Turns out being green cost a little green on the front end. However, for the light fixtures in the bathrooms, they used to raise the temperature in the bathroom 10 degrees as soon as you turned them on. Not anymore. I will includes some pictures soon.

Wow, It's hard to imagine it's been 3 years.

Sorry I missed your call, the phone wasn't with me at the time.
I've also been changing out the bulbs, bathroom's next, although the regular bulbs do help defogging the mirror.

I changed out six or so a few months ago with those curly-cue type bulbs to see what they are like. They are supposed to last longer which is what attracted me to them. They seem to have a funny green tint. Oh well - light is light I guess. I don't think I can tell if they save any electricity or not as the AC runs just the same as before. We'll probably find out they contribute to global warming in some way - seems like everything else does - ha,ha,ha like I believe that.
