Light-bulb moment

 

Sir, – Attending RTÉ’s Late Late Show in September 1998, I received a “one for everyone in the audience” prize of a long-life bulb. I placed it in the utility room and despite being used every day since (many times it was left on overnight), it still works. Is this a record? – Yours, etc,
