You have had your hands full, Dorothy! Good luck getting the grill in place, Charmion. And I've used live-traps so I can distinguish between pests (rats and mice) and the good guys (toads and lizards). Some are released, some aren't.
I've figured out how to restore two torchiere lamps that I haven't used in ages because they were made for the the blazing-hot halogen bulbs that occasionally fricassee a passing moth and stinks of burned wings and disturbed dust. I used to have more but donated or broke them down, depending on their condition. These last two solid examples will receive dimmer but much better LED replacement bulbs later in the week. Amazon says they will arrive on Wednesday. Sometimes you have to stop what you're doing and poke around to see if what you need has been invented yet. These bulbs exist, and while there are brighter bulbs that would be perfect replacement of 300 to 500 watt halogen bulbs, they cost over $60 a piece, so I will get along fine with the $9 100 Watt equivalent replacements. I usually never turned them up full strength anyway.
