Three years ago when we moved into our office, I put two compact fluorescent bulbs into my favorite desk lamp. I can't stand the light or noise from overhead fluorescent lights so we used lamps in the office and never turned the overheads on. Since I don't like dark spaces - and to deter potential unwanted nighttime visitors, I left the desk lamp on twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. When I moved my office home, the desk lamp moved to the kitchen bar but it still stays on pretty much all the time. And now, four years later, those two compact fluorescent bulbs finally burned out. Amazing! I can't believe they lasted as long as advertised. All the light fixtures and lamps in my house have these bulbs - I can't wait to see how long they last!
