Night Lights In My House

One night, I was drinking tea while I was writing my book.

I decided to turn off some of my lights in my house to save energy.

Although, I tried experimenting on placing LED night lights everywhere in each room,–making it look like we’re in a different location.

However, the lights in the basement are dimmed

I left some of the rooms in the dark.

The outsides of the house always has low-power lights on at night. But the catch is; light pollution causes us not to see the stars at night. Well, this house what I had is outside the noisy city. We’re close to the farm with vegetarian gatherers who are supplying food for our community. Other people who rent homes were so upset because, of these high energy bills. Some of these villagers has tried to switch over to non-polluting energy. There were endless issues with our energy system that is causing issues with our planet, and there were lights on in some houses that are left empty. Maybe some of these homes were sold. If I get my calculations correct… these homes were seized by the tax system because, some of these people has been trading food assistance cards for cash, but tax payers in danger of having their money forwarded to sanctioned foreign countries.

0.1: Changing Out Bulbs

Right before sunrise… Amy and I has woke up extra early to get ready for our project to change out these bulbs. Amanda is still patroling our home, and these lights are still on. She is warning other fairies about the man who is stealing lamps, and terrorizing our village. “Wow, Amanda is such a patrol fairy.,” said Amy, “let’s brush our teeth, and shower before we start. Mom is asleep for now, but we have to be very quiet. This is her first time in your house,–after she moved in.” I started to get ready for a shower, and Amy starts to go to her closet to get her clothes ready,–after shower. “Amy, keep the doors locked,” yelled Amanda, “The power system what we are currently using is about to be turned off by the company because, they’re switching to windmills to keep the carbon levels down.” I am still getting my clothes ready,–after shower. “Amanda has reminded you to lock the doors, and prepare for power that is going to be turned off,” I said, “let’s get our backup power going, and conserve as much fuel as we can.” Amy locks away all of her expensive hangers,–so they won’t be unlawfully used as spanking items/tools that are illegal. “Watch out for possible outages. Please let me know if you experienced any outages of energy,” said Amy, locking her case with expensive items, “I have to hide away all of my hangers from these rogue hands connected to these suspects who were wanted for illegally spanking children in our village.” Amy shuts the closet door, and gets her new change of clothes ready for use.

0.2: Low Energy Bill… Other Homes Experience High Energy Costs

During my official setup of my house during night time, I’m riding my white mouse, Amy Mouse. She is my new partner who is so interested of exploring my house, but she has never seen my projects like these before! I’m currently showing her my open-source work that is safe to reuse. Why I’m riding my new white mouse because, my fairy, Annie is busy granting wishes for everyone around the world. She has to resolve a problem for some people who are being discriminated by a bad fairy who don’t like adults making wishes. I was assigned to a white mouse to ride,–the fairy queen has prompted me to ride a mouse, or rabbit as Annie goes on patrol to save our planet.

Amy and I are currently checking each section of a wall to varify if the lights are bright enough to see, but use less energy. My fairy, Annie is on patrol to stop illegal logging industries from destroying the forest someplace. She isn’t able to come back to our place,–until her patrol is completed. Her goal is to stop pollution by 99%. Well, that doesn’t stop me! Amy is my backup assistant. Amy said, “cutting down on pollution, and saving the environment? Your house is filled with LED systems of some sort. You’re actually an owner, but don’t set out any traps that are harmful to mice.” I replied, “our project for this session is almost complete. By tomorrow, we’re going to check if our electric bill has lowered.” Amy has discovered the logs what I’ve written as we finished our environment-saving project. I ridden Amy gently down the hall, and placed the saving point at the door that leads to the bunks. “I believe we need to keep going with our energy-saving efforts to reduce our upcoming bill that will arrive soon. If we can do it; we can cause the coal industry to go bankrupt,–just like an old oil refinery someplace,” said Amy, installing a new automatic switch that will use the internet to adjust lights to reduce energy.

Amy and I are planning on going to the store to buy some fluorescent lights for our house. We’re going to buy some Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs that will screw into a standard socket for conventional light bulbs that are polluting our environment. Some of these lights what we just removed from our house will be recycled,–so they can be made into new lights for our home. “Our lights are going to light up the bunks, and we’re going to the store during the day. We have enough time to sleep in our bunks, and use our lamp that is fitted with an LED bulb that will be used as a dim lights for our bunks,” said Amy. Amy is currently entering the bunks. I’m riding her, but she is kind of walking off. “Let’s sleep in our bunks for tonight, we have to get ready to finish up our project of our energy-saving effort to reduce carbon by 100%. If we can reach our goal of phasing out all of the conventional bulbs, we can save the planet each day. But the catch is; we have to implement a powerful fluorescent light bar, or a circular fluorescent lamp to light our dark yard somewhere around our house,” I said. Amy said, “let’s do this project tomorrow,–if we can do it.” Amy pulls out a book, and she starts reading as I get ready to sleep.

As I get ready to sleep; I changed to my pajamas, and I get ready to brush my teeth. Since there’s no connection to the bathroom; I have to use the hallway to reach it. I can hear Mary walking down the street with her crew. Maybe they’re on a mission to keep our village free of terrorism. However; most of the other villagers were just asleep.

So, I brushed my teeth, and listened to the news on my recorder. I have to steam down our shared bathroom to let others use it to take a bath. Well, I haven’t got my bath toys unboxed just yet. We’re still getting house set to get our home ready to be recognized. We still have boxes, tubs, loose items, and other objects to sort.

I switched off my recorder as I exit the bathroom. I have to turn off the lights to reduce more energy. I installed a new automatic night light in the bathroom to keep the dim light on. This is necessary to reduce power, but provide little light in this room.

I walked back to the bunks to put away my old recorder. I have to open my tent to get ready to sleep. Amy enters the tent as I go in. I need to stock up my clothes as I get prepared for the next day. I had my spare coins stored, and my coins counted, and rolled. Both of us share our money. But we had a habit of using 2 units. “I just can’t wait to see our low electric bill come in the mail. If we did it successfully reduced our electric bill… we can tune up our home further to rely on renewable energy,” said Amy, sliding her large pillow into our tent. “If we can use up these LED bulbs… and we got a bright room, we can able to run some of our everyday items.”

Meanwhile; people who were awake are getting ready to see the stars at night, and they’re planning on reducing energy. Well, they’re actually consuming more energy,–due to use of conventional light bulbs. They used the small versions of these units, but they’re electric bill kept going high as $200. They claimed they’re reduceing their bills, but they’re wrong.

Maybe they’re relying on coal-burning plants to keep their homes running. Looks like they’re aren’t able to see the stars.

Many of these home-owners are so concerned about their bill that is high!

They tried their best to reduce power by using candles, but they don’t want to take any risk of lighting them,–due to fire concerns.

Many children who were afraid of a dark has left lights on in the hallway of their homes. Most of their parents has prompted children to reduce power to save money each night. But they had no luck.

This is kind of a terrible issue. And they’re trying to cut ties with coal industries, and switch to wind energy.

While Amy and I are sleeping; both of us dreamed of a low electric bill what we just received in our mailbox. I was walking alongside Amy as we work together,–bringing in mail for our home. However; we have about 12 letters inside.

Each letter is from each company like an energy company, electricial redo services, and water services. Each of us has to work together as we pay each bill.

Amy and I has walked back in our house to start paying our bills. Why Amy and I walked alongside each other because, Amy hasn’t got enough energy to give rides. I do have enough energy to walk or run. But Amy has low energy. “This is a low bill,” said Amy, reading it. I read other mail to see if my water service has been paid just yet.

During the day; Amy and I are enjoying our breakfast that is free of eggs. Annet is reading a newspaper about the mines being cleaned up to allow nature to reclaim these old mines as a new place for plants and animals. There was a sign of crude oil shortages,–due to greater use of renewable oils that will NOT be discarded, but reused as fuel, and other products. Rabbit breeders has planned to setup an underground rabbitery to breed rabbits as pets, show animals, therapy animals, and service animals. They’re NOT raised for meat.

During our shopping task; Amy and I are at the large store. We’re choosing new Compact fluorescent bulbs for our home, there are 22 people choosing these kind of bulbs what we’re choosing. They’re filling this aisle what we’re currently in. We have to buy lots of bulbs for our house,–so we can use it for our project that is about to reduce all of the energy. We’ve already used up all of the LED lights for our home. And we’re taking this step to reduce power usage for our home. If we don’t reduce power,–the pesky coal-burning plant will pollute air with a powerful cloud of pollutants that will harm our planet.

As we come back to our home; we start installing these lights at the another section of our house, starting with our parlor. That’s where our movie-player is installed. Amy is equipped with a crate of lights we bought from the store. There about 400 units inside. These special LED units are built to light 1 large room. Amy said, “I’ll do the electrical work, and you’ll insert the units.” I replied: “We have to check if these units are working correctly. If they don’t work, and we’re stranded in the dark; that will be a disaster.! Amy unpacks the electrical cable, and she starts rewiring our entire parlor. Amy has an ability to swap cables without any trouble. This electrical work may take some time to be completed. But we’re not rushing. We have to take a step at a time, and varify if our system is working properly.

Each of us do each task. Amy does the wiring. I do all of the installing of these lights that will replace these older bulbs that are causing further pollution that is causing our village to be warmed up during the cold days. We’ve been using traditional bulbs that resulted high levels of pollution. But these new kind of lights will fix this problem. Other mice in our house are so jealous; they wanted to do these same tricks what Amy is actually doing! But they’re actually too small to reach the light unit. It is a fixture, but we called it a ‘light unit’. We can hear other neighbors getting ready to reduce power, but we are ahead of them. They’ve just trying to use solar generators, but that’s the different way to reduce power.

I gently ridden Amy alongside an empty wall,–where we’re actually rewiring our parlor. We discovered some of the electrical cables are defective, and they need to be replaced. We’re opting for a rodent-proof electrical cable, and filling up all of the gaps. These gaps will be used for wall-mounted lamps. Maybe a previous owner/designer has implemented changes for this house,–before I owned this place! Most of these slots are functional. But the previous owner who is a landlord has been removed from our town,–due to his barberric practices, such as trapping and killing mice. Our village doesn’t even support trapping and killing mice because, they respect them.

Amy and I has to work with each set of cables and lights at each section, if we don’t use our prefered method; that will be a problem. We take long breaks when finalizing our repair task. Maintenance projects in our home is slow, and it requires procise work. During each break, we read books, play, and hang out with other neighbors. Most of our neighbors are friendly, and safe. They’ve already reduced crime levels by 99%; thanks to activists who were so strong, they changed our village without any trouble.

Once our parlor has been rewired; we turn on the power to varify if the lights are working correctly. It was brighter than it used to be! Amy was so happy because, her task is done. Amy: “Wow! that is great for us to light up this parlor. We can able to enjoy tea, or read books,–or watch a movie here. We have cut 20 pounds of carbon so far.” I gave Amy a large berry tart as a special treat for her. “And that’s training my mouse without whips, some people didn’t even understand; when training your animals; don’t use whips. That’s why I prefer to take time, and gradually advance to the next level,” I said. Amy replied: “How about we should take a break, and do the rest of our project later. Since you trained me for the first time; and you allowed me to be off-duty,–enabling me to take long breaks; you didn’t use any barberric items at all.” Amy grabs the remote from the table, and activated the TV to watch a movie.

1: Fun Effort to reduce power in our home!

Amy and I has finished the another section of our house. With a flip of a switch, the lights are now on at our bunks. These light slots hasn’t been working for the past months. “Perfect!!!” I exclaimed. One working light has lit the bunks when the test curtains has been activated. Then 2 lights has activated. The bunks begins to brighten up… and the LED lights has lit without any trouble. Amy said, “now these lights will help us reduce energy. They can be dimmed,–so we can save more energy, but we don’t need to dim them at this time.” Amy and I are proud because, we had reduced energy by 70%. Now the coal industry will use less fuel, and go out of service, that will also enable us to use windmills to generate power for our village. Amy and I were so proud of our project because, we’re reducing pollution. “All we haveto do just figure out how much of our power has been reduced so far,” I said.

Amy and I has settled down for a short time as we save our session of our project. We enjoyed some tea and tarts as we watch TV. Well, this is an open-source TV show what they’ve just supplied for our subscription. Since this service is evolving slowly, we have to stay in our budget. Amy has prompted me to go to the next level. She often reloads my shipment of tarts for my freezer. Both of us are taking a long break to let our energy charge up. We’re planning on implementing our new lighting to reduce power even further. But Amy doesn’t want to do this project too soon because, we have to save our money in order to get these materials for our project in the future. I have to write it down on my computer to keep track of our recent tasks. Unlike other people who were renting homes, we’re the only ones who were maintaining our home. This long project takes time. We’ve currently had parts of our home completed so far. Amy looks around the room to see if any of these projects needed to be implemented. But we’re NOT in the rush to implement these new features. We do this by these steady steps. Amy thought she didn’t do any tasks, but she already did. I’ve allowed Amy to look into my digital log. And she discovered her task highlighted in blue,–indicating she already did her task. But she’s taking a long break. That enables us to watch some other mouse-trainers in our village. Amy: “Look all of these mice going nowhere to the next level! Since you have taken steps to level up; I had lots of time to review each level.” Amy adjusts the volume on our TV. We have to use our stereo system to extend the sound from our set. “You are right Amy. I always give you long breaks after each task and tricks. You’re kind of like my third fairy, but you’re currently being developed by me. Some of my peers don’t have a mouse as a pet just yet,” I said. Amy reboots the player,–after the movie finished playing. It was a short movie. But that’s just a starter content created by our community. Maybe they’re launching their business via each step.

10: Other Houses Might Be Lit With Conventional Bulbs

As I finished setting up 1 section of my house, I decided to get ready to sleep. But all of a sudden, I discovered an another house that is fully lit. And they’re using conventional goods that are defective by design.Not sure they’re relying on renewable sources. It’s a nightmare if we don’t rely on renewable energy. One of my neighbors just started believing in fairies since a few days ago. But all of the other villagers are asleep early. That’s when I started taking a night hike. I continued riding my big white mouse, Amy. Joe is walking down the empty streets where cars and trucks are scarce. These biking streets has been established for this old town. It’s open-source town that is slowly growing. That’s when Amy And I start running towards this black house down the street. It’s going to be a long ride all right; but I’m trying out my new white mouse that I can ride!

As we went there, we met 4 villagers who have trouble reducing power, they tried to turn off some of these lights, but 1 person kept turning them back on. We started talking to these villagers about a problem what we also discovered. Mr.Oscar, and Ms. Ferris are just trying to keep their energy bills low. Jim and Jannett are just playing chess outside. But 1 person isn’t outside. We asked them if we can take a closer look of their house for further analysis.

As soon we had permission from Mr. Oscar and Ms. Ferris; we went inside.

We can see lots of lights turned on as we went through the door! The kitchen light is on, the tea room light is on, the hallway light is on, the parlor light is on, the bathroom light is on, the dining room light is on, and the playroom light is on. Only 2 rooms had their lights turned off. Amy: “The owners of this house are right! these lights are left on.” “That’s the first clue, someone might be afraid of the dark,” I said. Amy can see the little person at the another bedroom. That was Louie, the little boy who has trouble sleeping. We can see his toys that are lined up on the wall. They’re the same toys that i had at my place. And he had a theme of a lit environment. But that’s just the regular wallpaper what his mother Ms. Ferris gave to him when he’s a little baby. It was used to decorate his old room in the old apartment where they used to live since long time ago. Louis: “Amy, why you are turning off the lights? I had trouble sleeping without light, I won’t able to sleep.” Amy tries to help him sleep. That’s when I grabbed some tarts what Mr. Oscar baked for me. Amy: “Looks like you’re afraid of a dark. I has something that will help you sleep at night without that kind of light that you’re using. I had a night lite that will allow little light to light up your room.” She gave him a plug-in night lite that will be placed on the wall outlet. Louie just plugged it up.He turned on the night light as Amy turned off the main light. Louie: “What’s a night light?” Amy: “It’s a light that is built to use less power. I generates little light for your room. Some children have fear of darkness,–just like you.” Louie just went to his custom-built bunkbed to sleep. Louie: “Good night, Amy!” Amy just left Louie’s room as I grabbed my box of tarts. I continued riding Amy, and we went out the door. We told Mr. Oscar and Ms. Ferris about a problem what we just solved. They gave us a big thanks for resolving this issue.

Amy and I started hiking down the biking street. We are finding some houses that are trying to reduce energy. We can see 2 other houses that are dim already. Well 1 of the other houses are still on. Maybe there’s something is wrong with their lighting that is not responding to their controls. But we’re not sure what’s going on, we have to investigate the another issue that is different.

As we reached this house in question; we met some workers who are working inside this house that is getting upgrades,–so it can rely on renewable energy. We can see lots of lights that are turned on. Well, this house is still connected to the coal-burning plant. However, parts of this building has it’s lights turned off. But 1 worker is still leaving the lights on.

As we went inside this library, 1 worker has left his lights on while he’s on his computer that doesn’t even use open-source technology. His machine is defective, what a nightmare! We told him to turn off the lights to reduce energy. We started showing him these night lights that he can install in this library. He told us about the lights that are turn on are used to reflect the lit theme. But he actually polluting our planet. We decided to turn off some of these lights to reduce energy for this house.

As we left the library; we found the another clue that reflected this issue what we’re currently investigating. We just found the lantern that was used to travel at night. It does have oil inside for fuel. But this fuel type isn’t renewable. It was left on. Some people are relying on renewable sources for energy. This old lantern can be revamped into something new. If conventional oil is replaced with olive oil, it can be used as an alternative to fossil-fuel. Almost all of these houses are dim,–so everyone can see the stars at night. If we can resolve this kind of issue,–regarding pollution, and nyctophobia; the fairy queen will appear in our village, and our dreams of choosing renewable sources will be saved.

Amy and I just stopped at the computer shop; we can see lots of workers choosing open-source technology over closed-source technology. This endless rise of open-source communities has left conventional closed-source technology in the dust.Amy: “Wow! Looks like they’re choosing open-source software for their computers. What a dream!” “That’s a big change for this town,” I said. Amy: “You are correct, this big switch has been running for years in this town. DRM-protected content has been polluting this town for years. That’s why they boycotted these DRM-infected products. Almost 44% of our town just successfully made a giant change. It’s a nightmare if we had DRM everywhere.” I replied: “Tonight, the percentage is at 66% notch, and climbing.” Amy just discovered the another store that is recalling all goods that are DRM-protected. We ran towards this store; the news crew has documented the largest recall ever. It’s beyond worse nightmare for consumers.These villagers are relying on renewable resources by 500%. We ran towards the subway station that is still lit, however; it relies on renewable LED light systems. These lights are adjusted by the renewable automated computer, it only uses open-source software, hardware, and devices. The train system is also using open-source technology. Their fully-functional data center has already reduced carbon by 900%. But their old unwanted software that is infected with DRM must be carted away from this town. These disks containing unwanted content are taking a trip to the recycling center to be wiped, and turned into new material. Wiping these disks is necessary for this facility because, they don’t want to infect their machines, and cause a large nightmare in our village. This facility can break up lots of disk in just 3 minutes. It ranges from floppies, to Optical Discs. We can see the recycling center that is filled with activists who wanted open-source technology for their community. Nobody wants DRM in this village. The king and queen within an open-source community has planned to ban DRM from this town. About 99% of these villagers had wished for it,–for a long time.

Amy and I went to the old abandon book store. We found the another clue. It was a tabletop lamp that is used to light up the dining room. It was recalled because it has too much defects. “Wow! This giant recall of these infected goods has caused our leaders in this village to propose a ban against DRM,” I said. Amy: “Now we get it! Louie was using a defective lighting system that is not open-source, but we introduced an open-source solution for him, and his family. The worker on his computer was relying on non-renewable sources.And a giant recall of DRM-infected goods. Right now,we can see other villagers improving their old town.” “That’s why I chosen open-source for my lifestyle. I’ve just setup my house to rely on open-source goods,” I said. Amy and I sped back to our house to get ready to sleep.

As we reached our house, we went to our mailbox to check our messages. However, we had a package that is mailed from our villagers. We opened a package to see what’s inside. It was a new custom-style countertop portable oven for baking tarts for tea.

After we placed our new countertop oven in the tea room; we went to our bunks to sleep. These night lights in my house are dim, after 90 minutes, these lights turn off to save energy. Other houses had their night lights on too! The entire town is dimmed. And the pollution levels is going down.

During sunrise; we are enjoying some berry tarts with eggless French toast. We’re also drinking tea with our breakfast. Amy is reading the newspaper. Amy: “listen to this! The entire town has boycotted DRM all the way. Everybody were so happy about this change because, their nightmare was finally over.” I replied: “DRM is the top pollutant that’s been polluting our creative world. Although, pollution comes in any forms, such as leaving your conventional lights on, loud noise, oil refineries, garbage being thrown in water and buried underground, leaving your car engine on, factory-farming, and technological measures. If this kind of pollution continues, our world will be a mess!” “Reducing energy is the must to stop global-warming. If windmills are built in the cold environment, and the coal-plant is shutdown, people who are living in the colder climate will rely on wind energy, I added. Amy: “You are correct! Saving our planet is important. Eating meat can also cause climate change. Choosing a vegetarian, or a complete vegan diet can help farmed animals escape from cruelty. Since you are a vegetarian; you are not eating these common creatures that are raised for meat, such as; cows, chickens, ducks, pigs, hogs, geese, turkeys,deer, elk, and other animals. Some vegetarians,–like you eat fish in their diet, as long seafood is sustainable” I ran towards the night light that is turned off. Thanks to the configuration that is used to automate the light system. If the main lights of the house are off for a month, the carbon levels will be reduced. Amy just finished her breakfast. I hopped on Amy’s back and start riding her out the door to explore the garden that is 5 houses away.

As we got there; we started gathering some vegetables, and fruit. These villagers are growing their own food as a backup food source for their village. These plants are organic,–thanks to gardeners who are using compost. The well water is safe to drink and use for everyday use.

After we gathered some plant-based food; we went back to our house to fill our freezer. This unit has an LED light that is built to light up the compartment. The fan system is built to blast cold air,–allowing the lower section to cool faster. And it regenerates energy to power the compressor.

As we are sorting our food, we are filling up the entire freezer with vegetarian meals. It can take a long time for us to finish up our task. It’s a wonderful dream if we continued a vegetarian diet. Amy: “We’re going to make a giant veggie mix for our tonight’s dinner, if we can keep our food plant-based; we’ll be healthy!” I replied: “This village was dreaming about a vegetarian diet for years.” Amy: “I’m also a vegetarian too! Back in the days, we used to live in the apartment building. You were a vegetarian who only ate veggie products.” The freezer is full, we closed it up,–so it can hold the cold air. We had an Icebox that relies on dry ice to cool down these compartments,–all without electricity. That can be useful for emergencies. If the power goes out, our food won’t go bad.

Meanwhile; we went to the cellar to check the water heater,–to varify if it’s doing it’s job. The built-in regenerative fan prevents the water heater’s power box from overheating. Heat from the power box is used to heat the existing revamped water heater to keep hot water in sync. We removed the bad power box, and recycled it as we install the new power box. It’s built to generate more heat. Thanks to the use of the fan that regenerates power for the heating element. The old broken gas boiler that is used for heat is only using electricity. Well, this is a revamped boiler that doesn’t hog the entire room. It will be used during the fall.

Hours later; we started going to the front yard of this house to start these planter boxes where our bean plants will be growing,–this backup plan enables us to keep our extra supply of food for later. Amy: “Let’s plant lots of beans for our bean dinner tonight.” “These other planters are going to be useful,” I said. I inserted some beans inside the planter as Amy inserted soil. The beans are watered,–so they can grow. If these stalks grew large enough, new beans will grow too! It may take some time. We went back to our house to start a bean dinner.

While we’re enjoying our dinner; we decided to watch for these night lights to turn on. We can see some stars in the sky. And these houses are dim. But these street lamps are on. These gatherers are about to sleep later. We can see the fairy queen flying in the sky. Maybe she’s granting wishes for anyone!

After our dinner, we decided to sleep. That’s when our lights are off. We also kept our doors locked as a safety feature. The audio-book player is playing an open-source book. If it’s done playing, it turns off.

The outdoor night lights are on,–so people who are riding their bikes can see in the dark. This peaceful village is asleep.
