Bulbs and Whoops

cflbulb

 

Sorry for the lapse.
I haven’t had time to post.
So here’s a haiku?

 

Also, the last of the three CFL bulbs I had in my master bathroom died last night (with a nasty pop). Something started to small like burning electronics a while before and I didn’t realize what it was until the light burnt out.  I was worried at first that it was coming from the vents, and the last thing I need is another episode of not being able to use air conditioning because of it flinging bad smells throughout the house.

Anyway, all three of these bulbs went out within the last three months or so (though the others didn’t scorch), so none of them even lasted three years (so many threes!).  I thought these things were suppose to last longer than incandescent bulbs…

I replaced them with some LED ones I had on hand, which I guess are better anyway, but these particular CFLs were nice – 1600 lumen 6500K ones (very bright, super white).  I’ll have to see if I can find LEDs in such a configuration.

Dang, I’m boring.

 

Bene vīvite.
