On the domestic front it was, once upon a time, a very attractive feature indeed. In fact, today, many folks still have the luxury of owning these attractive house features. They are still able to keep a swimming pool. And the patio area remains a permanent but attractive feature of the property. But one luxury was discarded some time ago already. Surrounding the pool and patio areas to add to its attractiveness, especially at night time, use to be a fine string of fluorescent light bulbs of different pretty colors.
The folks simply stopped utilizing these lights because it was becoming pretty expensive for them to maintain. They simply said enough is enough after they saw one too many high electric bills. Not only was the electric bill sky high, the bulbs kept on blowing over and over. And they kept of having to restock. Over and over again. But, no more, they said. They’ve found alternative lighting sources to be sure, but these are nowhere close as attractive as the fluorescent lighting features.
Now, really folks, had they known. had they known that all it took to keep their fine lights flashing for longer was a special little device known as a fluorescent starter we would not be sitting here having this conversation. Its okay, we don’t mind. Little did we know either. But just how did this discovery come about? It came about through another discovery which thankfully, many folks are making full use of today.
It’s called the internet, see. And it does not matter how much we propagate here, sooner or later, they will all know. No need to throw away your light bulbs and time to stock up on new ones.
