    Unless I'm misunderstanding what you're asking for, a local hardware store ought to do the trick.

    I'm useing regular 120 volts ,can't seam to find what i'm looking for in just the hardware store and even home centers I thought that there might be a specialty store that I have not heard of. basicly it's a 20 " x 20" block colum that a light will sit on at about 4' high just want a regular bubl or florecent and all the store are pushing is those candell opra bulbs that really cost too much and don't last that long.

    I'm sorry I can't be of more help. It sounds like the kind of bulb you want is of the usual 'bulb' shape, has a clear glass, you can see the filament, right?

    They're available here by the thousand. And not the candelabra kind, either.

    Go to an electrical or lighting supply store.

    Outdoor lights are subjected to all the elements so be certain to use a fixture and 'bulb' designed to withstand the weather. A lighting supply house will handle well-known brands such as Hadco, Nightscaping, Hanover and Kim. Using 12-volt will simplify the install but look at all your factors.

    Are you referring to the actual light fixture that can accommodate a standard sized bulb? (vs. the smaller end candelbra bulbs). If the big guys don't have it, you will have to revert to the lighting suppliers. Be sure to get the flourescents rated for outdoor use.

    I agree that most outdoor fixtures pushed today use multiple candelbra bulbs which can be 3-4 40-60W bulbs...pricey to run!
