Default Christmas/ Holidays?

What's everyone doing?

Christmas Eve will be at my house where I will make every Tex-Mex dish known to my family.

Christmas day I will be travelling all over central Texas to visit relatives on my wife's side.

We're all going to Texas, warm weather and dinner at Austin's place.

I guess I had that all wrong. Who would have thought Houston was in B.C. When they said the air conditioner was working fine, I assumed it was warm there, but they were joking about the poor little heater in the cabin. Bobby was going to pick us up at the airport in his Austin and hopefully get us there in time for dinner.

My inbox is filling up faster than that other box.

And those long life bulbs from Grainger put out 160 lux while the others put out 208 lux even though the bulbs are both frosted, both 120v, both 600 lumens, both at 6' distance and both pull a measured 65W.
Then Grainger said I should get clear bulbs instead, so now the question is, "Do xxx lumen clear bulbs deliver more light to your room than frosted bulbs?"
