I bought enough 100 watt bulbs to last my lifetime. For our pump house, I have heat tape on the pipes and a heat lamp suspended overhead focused on the pump housing to keep it from freezing solid.
I found out that I like the CFL's and bought those Reveal bulbs for my
wife's studio. Soon after I bought them, I converted the studio to full
spectrum fluorescent...so I had no use for them.
Considering that I bought them last year..I think it great that they
took the items back with no hassle.
I have LEDs in the kitchen ceiling fan/light, all the hall lights, my
basement office, all the bedroom ceiling lights, and most of the lamps

Indeed! Some folks actually started an operation and started to
advertise a product called "Heatball". They had a nicely designed
website on which they explained that a "Heatball" is a small electric
heating device, that more or less accidentally also emits light.
People could actually place orders - the folks themselves obviously
ordered a truckload of (of course) ordinary light bulbs that had the
brand "heatball" printed on them from some foreign country where light
bulbs were still legal.
Unfortunately, the customs office didn't let these "heatballs" enter
Germany, claiming they were just light bulbs, which were no longer a
legal product to sell. The heatball guys even published the letters
they exchanged with the customs office on their website - kind of
funny how they explained that customs must have made a mistake, as a
lightbulb is not a light bulb, but a heating device, and clearly
marked as such.
I actually ordered two heatballs myself two years ago, but never got
them delivered due to the product being blocked from entering Germany.
I didn't really need them - neither for lighting purposes, nor for
heating - but I found that whole operation quite funny, so I though
I'd support these guys with an order of my own. :-)
