In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
We learned an expensive lesson about CFL bulbs today. They do NOT work in fixtures that are on timers or dimmers. We had put these three CFL bulbs in our outside lights that turn on & off automatically via a timer. Two of the 3 fixtures stopped working. When the electrician came out, it cost us $100 for us to learn that you can't use CFLs with timers. We were TRYING to save money on energy.
