Good morning.
So far, it's been a busy week in the Salon. The weather also has been nice, though I've been stuck inside.  :-(
My sister, who lives in central Louisiana, says they're doing okay. No damage. Isaac went east of them.
And it's looking to be a nice weekend. The remnants of Isaac should turn east before getting this far north. So I'm looking to get this work week finished and enjoy the weekend.
 In other news.....
We have square lighting fixtures in the Salon as you can see in the above pic.
Well, in our current electric bill, they state that the u-shaped light bulb that fit them are to be discontinued due to their poor energy rating. But they will give us a credit of $25 per fixture to help with replacement. That's just a bunch of bull!
I'm instead, going out and stocking up on the light bulbs. They cost $9 a piece, but they last years. We've been here 15 years now, and just now starting to replace them for the second time. At that rate, we'll be long retired before they run out.
Anyway, it's always something, right?
Have a great weekend!


  1. That's just like doing away with incandescent bulbs, which can be recycled and really only cost a few cents to operate.
    And the government, who obviously was clueless when they past the law, decided to go with the CFL bulbs which are hazardous waste and can't just be tossed.

    I like your plan better.
    Glad to hear you've been busy.
    I updated my blog today. Last night was quite different from when Isaac went through.
    Hope you all have a great weekend, too!

  2. that is crazy about the bulbs, yes stock up :)

    Have a great one friend

  3. Maybe they're trying to get you to buy bunches of bulbs.
