What things that excite you?? Anything you want to talk about that excites you.  Grin

For me:
Finding vintage fixtures in old buildings.

Finding old lamps and fixtures at restores and flea markets

Also finding old and regular fixtures online

Finding or knowing of old keys in use, especially if they are of an old style and slightly worn down. An example is old Corbin keys that have a cloverleaf head.

By extension, any device that has seen some use and shows signs of wear, but... that still work well and that look like they have lots and lots of life left. This attests to their high quality. There are numerous examples of lighting related ones on this site.

Finding any kind of new old stock incandescent bulbs on eBay or at the ReStore. 

Seeing an LED bulb made in another country besides China.

Driving at night for the first time with a new pair of headlights.


Non-lighting related:

Snow in the forecast (It might actually snow a little bit here in South Carolina tomorrow)

Test driving new cars.

Going to see my friends at my college since I graduated a few months ago.

1. When I find HID stuff at the ReStore.
2. Going on road trips, especially if it's to a place I haven't been before.
3. Organizing/compacting my lighting collection, it's fun to see how much stuff can fit in a closet.

Here are some pictures of that expected snow at the lake, near Landrum, SC.  I love it when it snows, it's beautiful!  A picture of the lake, an LED street light outside the house, and some trees behind the house illuminated by a halogen floodlight.  Winter Wonderland  Cheesy

Finding childhood items, photos and anything that I've been wanting to look for  Cool

Seeing missout old/previous lighting systems when upgrades take place

Getting lamps from makers such as GEC, GE and OSRAM

Snowy weather during weather (much better than rain)

Getting FaceBook positive reactions from my uni friends and old school friends and would not mind from you LG members

Being invited to parties, night outs and pub meetups

Shazamming a sick tune and getting the artist/album and version info and I go on YT to save and listen

Having female friends  Cool

Nice topic.  Cool

-Motorcycles, more than anything. Especially if it's the same make and model as mine

-W O M E N, women, and women. On the beach, on a motorcycle, in a car... I don't care. Women

-Buildings that still contain magnetic rapid start fluorescent as their main source of lighting, Slimlines, or Preheat

-LED's replaced by older, more reliable lighting (I'm sure it's happened somewhere in this world)

-Super Smash Brothers

-Sega Genesis

Interests
1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs

Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend
