Sorry to not post! I'm just super busy with a new job and having to develop a completely new routine and schedule that fits into my reduced free time. Further, my daughter has learned to climb the furniture without understanding how gravity works and thus, requires much more supervision than usual (even so, we still ended up with a fat, bloody lip!).

Normal posting will resume soon!

For now this is the text of what I want to include with the light bulb giveaway.


In your hand is a compact fluorescent lightbulb (CFL) that could green the world. CFLs use less energy saving homeowners money and reducing carbon emissions. Why does this matter to you?

Well, who doesn’t want to save money? More money in our pockets is a good thing!

As for carbon emissions, Scientists believe that carbon emissions are causing all sorts of climate problems.From melting the polar ice caps, to hot summers and warmer winters (meaning more snow for Parma!), carbon emissions are changing the planet and not in a good way. Fortunately, there are some easy things you and I can do to fight climate change.

This light bulb is one of those easy things. If we all used CFLs, it would the equivalent of taking 800,000 cars (and their emissions) off the road. Plus, it would save enough energy to light 2.5 million homes. Saving energy is good because it means we use less oil and coal as well as reduce their emissions into the environment.

So please use this light bulb. Better yet, swap out all the light bulbs in your house for CFLs and buy just one extra to pass on to someone else along with this card.

Visit to tell us what you did with your light bulb and to learn more about how Parma is going green.
