You have a nice site. Are you on Active Rain or Realtor.com? That may be a good place to offer your services for agents.

I am not a light person at all really – and I know when our one floodlight on our house goes out I’m sure the bulb won’t be replaced until we move out :)

Secondly, thanks for the link. That was a great description of how to properly set up the floods. I particularly like the fact that they describe how the floods are typically overpowered. I need to show her that one. I forgot to mention this in the post, but one thing criminals are doing in my area is to come several nights in advance of the break in (or attempt) to unscrew the bulbs. They do them one at a time, hoping that the homeowner will not notice. These accent lights started becoming brighter by the third night. Moreover, it is not easy to disconnect them if you do not spot the panel, and you need a short ladder to reach mine. I can have my glass of wine out on the porch to let my imagination roam over the stars. (My son took the telescopes up into a tree for better views- he claims, and I am not climbing up there :)

There’s a good demonstration of floodlight angle security on the Campaign for Dark Skies site.

(Sorry I haven’t given your e-mail a good response yet. Classes started last week, and I’m just getting a handle on things.)
