Thompson: Bulb always burnt? Try a different kind

Do you have a lamp or light fixture in your home in which light bulbs just don't seem to last that long? If so, you need to know this.

Thompson: Feeling a chill? Warm up your room and rug

It's safer than a space heater and a whole lot cheaper to operate. Plus, it's the only radiant heater on the market that you can put under area rugs. (It's even waterproof). You can use it under your desk, on cold bathroom floors, on your boat and even your motorhome. You can find the product by going to ...
