why not really annoy him with a request for a ceiling fan for a ceiling
with no electrical box and knob-and-tube wiring? :)
actually you will find a 300 watt floor lamp torchiere with dimmer is a
perfect adjustable illumination lamp for everything from tv viewing to
reading when placed next to the new la-z-boy recliner loveseat you owe
him already! :)
He's already got that in the basement with a built-in 55" HDTV. Now
you know why I make him change light fixtures..
