    Yes, I am on the budget plan here as well. The usage is reviewed every 6 months and then our charges are re-evaluated. At times I have been paying over $500 per month. Now I'm at $390, but that's going back up to $460 next month! I'm not quiet sure why the increase because we ran under budget this summer. I guess they are anticipating Christmas and another freezing winter! This is one of the reasons I want to sell my house!

    Whoa! 5"??? That IS teeny!! HAHA!!! LEDs are definitely the way the holiday lighting game is going. Nowadays, you can find replicas of old lights in LED versions all over the place. The price is still a tad high though. Plus, the purist in me still likes the "warm" glow of incandescent.
    I love Outdoor Christmas Lights!!

    I wish I could sit in your living room for a few hours!

    I love traditional/retro!
