I apologize, Joanne, I'm going completely off topic, but I think your readers should be warned about those twirly lightbulbs.
One I bought (@ about $7.95, not in a dollar store) almost burned yesterday after only a year and a half (?) of usage.
If I had not been home to turn it off immediately, who knows what could have happened to the lampshade?
Whenever I'm out in the evening, that lamp is left on. It did get regular usage.
Maybe it's not such a good idea to ban incandescent lightbulbs?

Has anyone else experienced similar problems?
