    Hi Claudia!
    I’ve been reading your blog for about two years. I love it. I started my own blog recently and tomorrow I’m going to post about the light bulb issue and link to your site. I fear we’re too late too. I too just hate the way they look but more hate them for what they do to the environment. Thank you for creating your blog about it. I am telling all my friends and will post to go to your blog tomorrow on my blog. I was horrified when I went shopping for light bulbs the other night at Walmart…and found hardly any normal bulbs on the shelves! I know I need to stock up. I’m scared we won’t be able to find them at all soon. All my friends are refusing to buy the new “green” ones…but we need main stream media to pick up on this.

      hi nita,
      thank for your comment. it’s become an obsession for me and you’re right, i do think we need to alert the media to get the word out, so please choose one (or many) and let them know. i feel better that i’m not alone on this…stock up!

    I’m crazy about fifi flower’s painting! I loved it anyway but then when I saw your original photograph underneath it was too much! Going straight over to her site to have a look. Thanks for sharing! Nicolexx
