So the door gets knocked... two guys in a Hyundai Excel, ...................already suss  :scratchchin:

"Sir, we are here to change your light globes. We will swap all your incandescant for energy savers, for free"


"yeah, right, whats the catch?"


"Sir there is no catch, it's a governemnt incentive"


"There is no governemnt"  :tilt:


"err, well, yes, but here we are anyway"


"Ok, I'm busy, deal with my wife....  :scared: "











An hour later we've been given 23 energy saver globes, installed even,and they've taken away our old stuff.




So far, no catch. Other than the stupid things don't come on straight away, and then take a minute or so to be bright enough to see so you actually end up leaving them on permanently rather than switch on and off, thus nullifying the energy savings  :doh:

I prefer to live insured and give out trust. Anything less is insular and paranoid.

I've been floored by the trust and generosity I've benefitted from in the past. I think my "two way trust" thing works for me.

I trust my insurance to give me significant upgrades of all the stuff that gets nicked  :tilt:

Might be ok unless "living green with less" means without some selected household items.

Those light bulbs are crap, if they talk you into replacing your shower heads take them off and remove the plastic resistor in them that reduces the water flow that way you can actually get wet.
