    There has been a big increase in the technology used in LED bulbs over the past few years, in that many are now dimmable. Does anyone know if these dimmable bulbs can be successfully used with lightning machines? We run two 500w Halogen floods outside, which do a great job for producing the...
  9. Lighting: Solar light bulbs - anyone ever used them?

    This year, my new cemetery columns will be located in a different part of my yard which is further away from an electrical outlet. I'd like to try and avoid having to run a long extension cord out there, so I was looking into solar light bulbs as an alternative. I've seen some with solar...

  20. VERY low cost exterior lighting ideas.

    General Halloween
    I wanted to show how our house looks at night during the month of October. We couldn't afford to do anything for our front yard exciting like the haunted grave yard, or a few Jack-o-lantern scare-crows holding sickles, headstones, iron fencing, etc without spending a small fortune.
