Re: LED bulbs for can lights

I find pretty good availability for 5000K. Not as good as the hideous 2700K, which Edison chose because it looked like the kerosene lamps people were familiar with at the time.

It's funny that you say that. I find 5000K hideous. It's [more]

Re: Wow!

But that was one of the things that made watching those games so much fun. :)

Re: Wow!

They were both good teams - and far enough from each other geographically that it seemed ok. :)

But they hated each other. And the fans hated each other. Growing up in Pittsburgh, I don't know which team ranks #2 on the most hated [more]

Re: Lowest bid

Final cost was $200k.

I'm glad I don't live in a high cost area. I could buy a second home for that much money.

Re: Wow!

The Pittsburgh Steelers (when Bradshaw and Franco Harris were there), and the Oakland Raiders.

Re: Retired on $30,000 a Year

What that exceeding your limit for stuff decreases happiness? Obviously, you haven't exceeded your limit because you are happy with your stuff.

I get rid of stuff to make room for more stuff. I like the new stuff [more]

Re: Retired on $30,000 a Year

It is bad to buy/acquire too many things. Exceeding the limit of budget or space results in a decrease of happiness.

Re: Why Don't They Remake...

Please, remake 'any' James Bond film with Roger Moore in it. And, the one with pierce brosnon and halle berry. yuck. bad acting, forced puns. just awful to watch.

Re: Honda Hybrid?

If this is Honda's virgin run into Hybrid engines, I'm not even going to consider one.
