    While I totally agree with this I actually NEED incandescent bulbs - I am THAT little guy who just loves the warm glow of HER incandescent bulb. (because of my eyesight)

    We have CFL's I will always need ncandescent bulbs to "balance" them - and am actually scared about the time when they will not be available.  I won't be able to read

      a GE Reveal CFL. I have one and it seems a bit warmer than their standard yellow CFL bulbs.  I prefer bulbs in the 5000k range, these are very bright white.  I have a 100 watt equivalent 5000k bulb I use for projects like soldering headphones back together.

      •  It's actually not "bright" that I need (1+ / 0-)

        it's a certain level ...  take our living room

        There is a CFL in one corner, 100 - a 60 in another corner
        and a 40 behind the seat I sit in.

        Take away any of these lights and it's too dark for me ... but a 75 in the 60 and it's too bright.

        I'm just weird I guess

        but I will give your suggestion a try

        thanks
