I didn't know they made outdoor rated CFL's.  I'll have to check into  
that.  Another issue with CFL's lighting the inside of my garage is  
they generate noise on the line enough to put my X10 stuff out of  
order and the line coupled intercom.  Thanks for the tip on outside  
CFL's maybe they're cleaner too.
