End Of The 60 Watt Light Bulb

Yesterday was the last day that you could manufacture or distribute the simple 60Watt light bulb, like this one on my desk at home. From today if I need to replace this bulb that has been part of most peoples lives since they could turn on the light, I will have to replace this with a new environmentally friendly bulb. I am not sure that these bulbs are as clear as the old ones, but I will have to get used to this. Apparently people have been stocking up on the old bulbs before they are sold out completely

I hope your 60Watt old bulb holds out a bit longer Percy, because they are definitely a little brighter than the new ones.

Oddly I was having a chat with the girl next door and she was bemoaning this new rule and said she preferred the old ones. Paul at Leeds in Yorkshire daily photography
