No failures of indoor LEDs so far ... Outdoors, walkway LED light fixtures, I've replace 3 of the 9, and now I see 3 more are dark

That bodes especially well for all the light fixtures California required me to install that only accept pin-base bulbs (that is, only accept CFL bulbs).

SeattlePioneer,

No doubt liberals will go back to being HORRIFIED at the idea of having lead in a house, rather than passing laws that REQUIRED people to install compact florescent with lead in them.

Re: "So do me something"

2828,

this amounts to a 12.4 percent surtax on all income above $118,500

Isn't it only wages that are subject to the tax incorrectly being called "the payroll tax" here? Not "all" income.

Re: tree issue in near drive way

my question is: is this legal?

I had to do extensive research on this back when we had a very uncooperative neighbor. There's no one answer. The laws vary considerably.
