The package promised that these Christmas lights would last 20,000 hours — most of them in a landfill?

Life in the World Economy

Elvis reports: “Elvis got the Christmas lights out yesterday, and two of the strings wouldn’t work. These are the fancy LED lights that cost a pretty penny, and the boxes they are packaged in make a big pitch that the LED bulbs will last over 20,000 hours!

Our neighbors, ourselves

Kathy S. of St. Paul: “Once, I lived in a second-floor apartment in a three-floor building.

Oops! (Responsorial)

Many of you have found your way to today’s Bulletin Board, despite the SNAFU in today’s email — but we have reasons to believe that others have not located it.

How that “Oops!” happened: We hit PUBLISH instead of SCHEDULE last evening, then immediately — but too late — changed it to SCHEDULE, thinking that you would receive a second, clickable email this morning. But no.

Live and learn!

Should we make that mistake again, please know that you can always find every Bulletin Board at BBonward.com.
