  •  One more thing about the UV light (0+ / 0-)

    and this is based on an NPR story I heard nearly a year ago about it, was that the UV light from CFL is only a risk if the glass of the CFL is broken, but that, unfortunately, because of the spiral shape that it's designed with, there are often tiny cracks in the glass to let that UV light out.  They said that something like a lampshade or a plastic cover eliminates the risk altogether.  So, if you were concerned about that, there's a little more info for ya.  Here's a link to the NPR story.
