And one more to point out that this is only how they would do it, and not necessarily right for anyone else, and that their mileage may vary.

OFGS, just wrap -- but not too tightly -- each flo-tube with partially-cooked bacon and rotate the bacon to a position that provides sufficient light to any reading position thereto pertaining.

One to claim that changing the bulb is an emotional decision and if you looked at the issue rationally you wouldn't change the bulb at all.

And another to claim that over regulation has ruined the light bulb market, no wonder they need changing so often.

And another to claim that she has used candles exclusively for years and they work just fine, thank you.
