    Yes, a horse lamp, with a little gold gilt. I forgot to mention I have managed to lose two lamp shades off of it. And it still works!

    she has more but i didnt have the heart to tell her what happened to them. they were as far away from the heat as they could get. I didnt realize it was a 150 watt heat bulb. If i had the 250 in there it wouldnt of mattered if they were far away. they would of still been warm. I had them in the house for a while so they didnt know they needed to be by a light would be my guess. thats why i am afraid to take the seramas out now. warm weather is coming though. my serama eggs from Jesse are still in MT. since the 3rd. they should of been here today.

    [​IMG] That sucks. Dealing with that cold weather is a pain in the you-know-where. Waiting on spring! We are supposed to set the clocks ahead this weekend. Throws me off for a week. You'd think I would be used to it.

    The weather channel showed several air ports all but closed down today because of winter storm Thor. I imagine there are a lot of eggs and chicks stranded somewhere between point A and point B.

    looking forward to seeing the lamp !! my eggs havent even made it out of the state they are coming from ! [​IMG] the morning will be the 3rd day. the incubator that Jesse made me. I cant get any humidity in it. I filled up every tray i have in there , bought a humidifier, tried a quart water with wick. all i can get is 16 % and up to 20 when i first slammed it with water. Lasted about an hr. then back down to 16. son recommends a hose directly from humidifier to incubator that would be too much.

    this morning is starting like all the rest. no eggs, today is day 10 for a few of them, husband still in bed ,forced to get my own coffee, a member on here and a friend is hurting, please say a prayer. ha ! husband just got up. I am spoiled beyond belief. I am ruined for any future relationships (if i even wanted) because of this man. LOL he has made and brought me coffee for the past 20 yrs , never complained about food , or lack of. LOL perfect ? no way ! but he has always been good to me and mine. he said something to me once, a comment about when something happens to him. I said, nothing is going to happen and when you go i am going with you. (he is 25 yrs. my senior) and he said, you will find someone. I told him i wouldnt want another then asked him if something happened to me would he remarry ? he said well, if someone would have me. people arent meant to be alone. [​IMG] not exactly the answer i expected.

    Time change almost bit me in the butt big time this year - thankfully DH was on the ball. The other day he says, "Spring forward is coming up, isn't it? I think it's this weekend." I was just sure he was wrong, so I went to check and, sure enough, it's 3-8-15.....which just happens to be the day I am supposed to fly out to Oregon, an hour difference in time just might matter a wee bit for that, right??

    Late - of course I am the type that tends to get there super early anyway, so hopefully that would have balanced out and I'd have been "late" by my standards but not so late as to have missed the flight. I absolutely HATE flying, so the nerves of the whole affair makes me obsess over not being late, etc and I end up allowing so much extra time for the trip down to the airport, security, etc that I find myself sitting at the gate forever waiting for the actual boarding to start because it always works out that there is no traffic, no line at security, etc.
