Good Morning! I hope you all are having a good week and welcome to the middle of it!!! Today I am posing a question more than posting a blog. I need a little feedback from you, my dedicated readers. I have the strangest problem going on and I can't figure it out. Since the birth of the CFL bulb craze, I have purchased a couple of varieties of them, and I must say we have been sorely disappointed.
Granted, I never have the big bucks to pay for the top brands I'm sure, but I know that the last two boxes I have purchased have been name brand, because they have been from Costco (GE). As a matter of fact, the first box that I bought from Costco, I had so many go bad in such a short amount of time, less than a year, I took them back thinking that they were defective. I am currently on the replacement box now, and just walked into my office and blew one of the new bulbs, which is what has prompted me to pose this question to all of you.As crazy as it sounds, I am honestly thinking it has something to do with this being an old house. I am wondering if any of you have older wiring and have had issues with these very expensive and then hard to dispose of bulbs lasting even shorter than regular light bulbs would in your home? I am all for helping the environment (as you have probably gathered by now), but The Royal Ranch consuming these CFL's like they are going out of style doesn't really seem right to me, what do you think?
