I killed and tortured bulbs!
This is not a very nice thing to say, most of the people on this site come here to enjoy lamps. The last thing they want to read about is this.!  >:(

There are two kinds of light  -  the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.

Nope, all i know was that it was there a week ago in the air and now it is on the ground.

Took delivery of a humongous box of lamps from James, of which the long-awaited Blue GE Dichro PAR38 lamp was just one  ;D :par:

More photos to follow as we work our way through them, I think a group photo might be a good first step..!

Thanks to James for a wonderful trade  :love:
