Welcome!

I've finally decided that I am a writer - all the other things I do just pay the bills. Someone eloquent once said that if you do what you love, the money will follow. Well, let's just see about that.

RIP Aggie
Aggie was my fifteen-year-old cairn terrier - or maybe I should say I was her 55-year-old person! She was my faithful companion, spoiled rotten and I am still trying to figure out what to do without her.

Bee is Peter's buddy. He's eight years old and has made himself right at home. I guess cats really do come in pairs or sets of three!

Truly amazing...

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!

  1. They last so long! I had one on my nightstand that was 7 yrs old. It only died cause I broke it. Bad me.

  2. One of my jobs today is to bring in the ladder and change a lightbulb in my office. It's a compact fluorescent, put in when I moved in five plus years ago!
    Best,

  3. Louis Dean LOVES these bulbs! I like the 'soft white' versions of them. I hate harsh bright light! (I actually look my best in the dark!)
