I forgot to tell you about the one funny incident in yesterday’s dental torture session.

Since I was there for so long, the assistant had given me control of the TV remote in the room so I turned on Fox News.

I was expecting either her or the dentist to object at some point, since I didn’t know their politics, but they appeared to be oblivious of what was on the TV. At one point, though, Nancy Pelosi appeared and when her name came up the dentist looked up from what he was doing to groan, “Is that woman still alive?”

It’s surprising how many people are conservatives that you wouldn’t expect.

Just last week I had a contractor out for an estimate to rebuild the garage
door and as soon as he saw the bumper stickers on the Suburban he loosened
up and became very familiar. Turns out we went to the same Tea
Parties on The Hill.

Can’t they just stop growing up?...........It’s happening too fast!

You think THIS is something, just wait until the grandkids start sprouting up.

Our youngest (of 9 kids) seems to have been a newborn only a couple of months ago, but we just got pictures last night of the little chick RUNNING around the house. (She's all of ten months old now and apparently went from crawl to first steps to wind sprints in the last two weeks.)

The eldest......Sheesh, the guy is bigger than I am.

Had a practice on tuesday for my daughter’s soccer team and one of the mom’s wanted to talk about voting. Had no idea what was going to happen next. She said that she voted for Santorum. I said good, i did too. Then one of the girls said, “Yeah, cause we do NOT want Obama to win again.” To which another girl on the team yells, “NO MORE OBAMA!” I was dying laughing after that.

more car bailouts - for france

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/03/an-american-auto-bailout-for-france/

Attention U.S. taxpayers: You now own a piece of a French car company that is drowning in red ink.

That’s right. In a move little noticed outside of the business pages, General Motors last week bought more than $400 million in shares of PSA Peugeot Citroen – a 7 percent stake in the company.

Because U.S. taxpayers still own roughly one-quarter of GM, they now own a piece of Peugeot.

...

In other words, General Motors essentially just dumped more than $400 million of taxpayer assets on junk bonds.

So many RUSH listners went to the website to support this NEW RUSH advertiser, they CRASHED their servers. So much for people wanting nothing to do with supporting RUSH's advertisers. I hope and pray the owner and people running www.newcandescent.com get RICH as a result.

Pro-flowers, Sherries Berrys and Carbonite must be kicking themselves in the head over their leaving RUSH. Sleep Train begged RUSH to take them back. He PERSONALLY looked at their requets and TURNED THEM DOWN! I wouldn't want to be the owner who RUSH made a multi-millionare. Must be something to watch your business go down the toilet.

I got through to the site....

For more than one century, Samuel Birnbaum, his son Bertram and now his grandson Larry Birnbaum, have been selling Thomas Edison’s most famous invention ... the incandescent light bulb.

Thomas Edison Seeks Distributors

Thomas Edison, an entrepreneur and America’s greatest inventor, established The Edison Electric Light Company in 1878. (It became The General Electric Company in 1892.) Edison realized that his incandescent light bulb could never light up homes and businesses without committed electrical distributors that believed that his invention would illuminate the world.

Birnbaum Electric Becomes Exclusive Edison Distributor

In 1909, Samuel Birnbaum opened Birnbaum Electric in lower Manhattan, befriended Thomas Edison and became a distributor for the General Electric Company. Like Edison, Sam was a master electrician, business man and inventor. He and Edison had much in common and they remained friends until Edison’s death in 1931.

In 1914, Thomas Edison personally presented Sam Birnbaum with a General Electric Incentive Award for his company’s outstanding performance as a distributor for the GE Company. The award, a hand-crafted and hand-blown replica of Edison’s first incandescent bulb with a high resistance carbon filament, is now a treasured and very valuable family heirloom.

Like Edison, Birnbaum Moves To New Jersey

With business booming, Sam’s son Bertram joined the company which moved uptown to a larger building on Broadway and 17th in NYC. Birnbaum Electric became known as Broadway Electric. Bertram’s son Larry joined Broadway Electric and, like Edison (Edison, New Jersey is named after Thomas Edison), he moved to New Jersey to found Epic and the Light Bulb Store in 1980 (a light bulb manufacturer with both wholesale and retail distribution.)

The Newcandescent Inspiration

Larry Birnbaum said that he owes the idea for the Newcandescent light bulb to the many customers of his Light Bulb Store located in South Hackensack, New Jersey. When customers became aware of the Federal Law that would effectively ban incandescent bulbs, they started hording incandescents by buying in bulk. Larry says,“We are all somewhat addicted to the incandescent lightbulb and that soft warm glow. It is a very soothing and calming color of light.” Larry went on to say that, “the inspiration to continue to manufacture the long-lasting (10,000 hours) rough service Newcandescent bulb that satisfies all federal requirements, is simply the result of what customers continue to want.”

I finally got through. $2.88 per bulb for 60, 75 and 100 watt regular bulbs so they are not cheap.

I would like to see their light production in lumens. Here's the trick: they are rated for 130 volts, so at the normal 120 house voltage they will be dimmer than 120 volt bulbs from the store. Since power is voltage squared divided by resistance, a bulb rated 100 watts at 130 volts will only be 85 watts at 120 volts. Since it is running cooler, less visible light will be produced and the lumen rating will be less than that 85%. That will vary some because the filament's resistance changes based on temperature, but don't expect it to be quite as bright as a pre-2012 100-watt bulb.

LOL! The power company will love you!

Speaking of power companies...
JCP&L came to read my meter today, Having just got home from work, I was off changing my clothes and thought I heard a horn honking in the driveway. I looked out to see a guy sitting in an unmarked SUV with a bright orange vest on. Then the phone rings, I answer it and he says “JCP&L here to read your meter, could you get your dog in” I said we don’t own a dog, haven’t since 2005!

LOL! I don’t know who or what he was trying to prove, the regular guy has come and gone, without a vest, a honk or a phone call, for the past 23 years. Jeesh...
