My goal is to publish new posts twice a week — Mondays and Thursdays. However, if you don’t see a new post on Thursday, it’s because I was too busy, so please look for a new one the following Monday.

Why do you think the border curtain floor lamp failed? I noticed it had only a three light cluster rather than six. Have you ever seen a three light cluster on that senior base? Thanks
There have been more than a few curtain border lamps coming up for sale in the last couple of years. It’s a specialized lamp that not everyone wants. I think it would have sold if the the reserve were a little lower. And no, I’ve never seen a senior floor base with only three sockets.
