    True story from yesterday....Another contractor is telling me how he really likes the MR16 lens clip because he never wants to have to go through what he used to....

    Apparently he found it very difficult to install blue lenses into his fixtures...

    You see, this guy who knows everything about lighting and doesnt need to be trained or educated was apparently removing the glass lens from MR16 lamps and installing blue lenses in their place with silicone....

    as serious as one can be he says to me "thats a lot of work"....

    the only response i could come up with in his presence was "You don't say."

    :hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead: :hammerhead: i think this was in Obama's stimulus package if i remember correctly.

    Hey Joey,
    We are wanting to get signed up here so get us on the signup sheet. I talked to Mike about it but can you get us fast tracked for the certs? Are you going to do a local class or do I need to commute? I am meeting with Mike on Thursday. I don't know if you can get the forms to him in time to give them to me.
