CFL’s soon to replace incandescent bulbs

I’m fanatical about saving electricity.  When compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL’s) first appeared I knew they were ridiculously expensive but they promised to last two to three times longer and use almost a tenth of the electricity.   Naturally, I replaced every non-dimming light in my house.  I spent more than a hundred dollars  but I felt justified I’d make it up in the long-haul.

Feds stop oil cleanup – AGAIN

Ok, now I am certain there is an agenda to make certain the oil slops up on the beach and gets everyone mad as hornets.  Otherwise we must conclude everyone drawing a paycheck from the Federal government is a complete and total idiot.

That’s it I can’t add anything to this gem.
