Thanks VT-Chicklit. I'll be going to the city in a couple weeks so i'll go to HD and check. The ceiling fan lights are the only ones I have yet to replace. Thanks again!

Well listening to you all...and as much as I had against these crazy lightbulbs...and the fact that our hydro is introducing smart meters shortly and daytime hydo is going to be almost 10 cents a kwh...
I took the plunge and replace them all...ouch that was expensive! $40 for 6 bulbs. But in my kitchen/living room alone I was using 10 100W bulbs, that are on almost all the time, so I guess I should see a difference on my hydro bill huh?

I guess smart meters are good if you're a night owl...but I don't want to be having to do my laundry all night :barnie
I value my sleep and like to be in bed by 9 most of the time...which reminds me, it is past my bedtime now
