The one I have in the photo is married (this was to avoid confusion, I was there with my boyfriend but we're not really married). The one for single was a lot simpler, just a streak on each cheek as I remember it, but I didn't get to see the one for 'looking' as no one in our group was!!

Thank you, Marilyn! The kid sort of adopted us as his parents for a day and tagged along where ever we went. Never obnoxious, never asking for anything, not speaking too much at all. But he did let me take that photo with him in it.

We've been replacing CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lighting) with new LED (Light Emitting Diode) type bulbs for over a year. They have multiple shapes to suit your needs. 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.

DrFumblefinger ·
A nice conclusion to an interesting and helpful series, Samantha. Thanks! Some people fund their travels by living very simply on the road -- keeping expenses to a few bucks a day. That might work for them, but I travel to experience a place. And that means admissions to attractions, eating good quality meals, staying at a decent hotel etc. I'm old enough that an element of comfort and civilization are important to me.

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.
