How to wire light fixture to extension cord?


The light fixture equipped with a cord and plug may not be "permanently" installed but could be set up as a portable fixture that is hung on the ceiling as a swag fixture. It would be tricky starting off with a pot light or can light since this would have to be built into a box that can dissipate the heat given off by the fixture.

Originally when telephoning between exchanges you went through the operator and named the destination exchange plus a (usually) 3 or 4 digit number for the called party's phone. When they went to dialing, some exchanges had to be renamed because the first two (sometimes three) letters had to be chosen from the 24 letters A-P and R-Y and not duplicate the number equivalent (A, B, and C correspond to 2) for any other exchange. Sometimes the town name would be the exchange name, sometimes the name of a nearby river might be used.

Aah, a "trophy wife." Well done. Mine's a trophy as well, though only three years younger than me. Still don't comprehend how she's put up with me for 28 years. As for hijacking the thread, age and deceit beats youth and inexperience every time LOL.
