ABC Wednesday - L is for...

...Lights

I couldn't resist this delightful kitty at the Ideal Home Show last wednesday. It was part of Number 1 Lower Carbon Drive, a full-size house built to show the latest ideas for greener living. There was lots of advice available too. The purpose of the cat? A visual representation to show each one contributes 10 watts of energy to a home. Just think of the heating bills we're saving with two!

Do go to Mrs Nesbitt's Place to find other ABC Wednesday pictures.

  16. we're trying some of the new flourescent bulbs as our flood bulbs burn out in our pot lights. (of which there are many in this house). Apparently they use 15 watts... but shine with the intensity of a 50 watt bulb... it is a different light though... I guess it will have to be fine...they will quit making the regular incandescent bulbs in the not too distant future...

  23. It must have been an interesting show. We are forced to live green at our cabin, at least most of the time. I went with logs because they are a big part of our life. You can see it by clicking here.
