Bringing that extra Christmas brightness to your living
room at no extra cost: Those little fairy lights
which brighten up the living room all add to the expense
of Christmas. Yes, you want a nice bright living room but,
'OUCH!!' the extra load on your wallet.
you know that your ordinary, everyday ceiling light can
be brightened? That even the flimsiest of lamp shades can
reduce the brightness of a bulb radiating at a frequency
of say, 20 nanometres by the inverse square root of its
thickness in microns?
not simply remove the lamp shade for the season. See below
how much Christmas brightness we have here in the Wyenot
living room from just an ordinary 18 Watt bulb with shade
removed, and without a single LED light in sight. Not dusting
it first can also give that added 'Good King Wenceslas'
snow effect every time you bang your head on it.
you have a nifty money saving Christmas Tip?
Why not send it in so that we can publish it next week and
help keep the Ebenezer Scrooge spirit of Christmas present
alive in Ross-on-Wye?
