Earth Day, Every Day: Light Bulbs

My friend Jackie, who lives across the river in N.J., sent me this message that echoes my Earth Day, Every Day month long message. This was sent to people in Jersey, my home state, but the info is valuable for all of us in any state. Thanx, Jackie!

    Unfortunately, as much as I do applaud your suggestions, the new bulbs do not fit my old bathroom ceiling fixture. What to do? Get a new fixture which entail an electrician to have it installed…$$$?

    I’ll hold out for the LEDs and see if they will fit. In the meantime, I got some of the old bulbs on sale while they were still available. 8-(

    (What is “pinging”?)
