Re: Behind the Scenes: Academy Museum of Motion Pictures

DrFumblefinger ·
An interesting behind the scenes look, Lester. Thanks for sharing this. Do you know if this Academy building will be open to the public, or will it just be for members of the Academies and their invitees? As I recall, the current Academy building is mostly off limits except to Academy members.

They use less than half the electricity of a CFL and last longer too. They have the added advantage of achieving full light in <0.5 seconds. Prices are dropping for all economy bulbs.

Some more great tips Samantha! For people with jobs that offer overtime, I've always found that is a great way to save up money quickly. It's easier to stay motivated working extra when you know the extra amount on your check funds your travel.

Glad to see that you guys enjoyed the series. It was an interesting and eye opening post. Since I wrote this, we even cut cable and are using OTA and Netflix. Saving us about $100 a month. Not much, but it's a $100 closer to living my freedom lifestyle I am working toward. Thanks again for the comments. Have a great weekend.
