So I changed over some of our recessed lighting to LED's and other than the slight pause when turning them on, everything seems the same but I have a question: I just switched out the previous bulbs for LED bulbs but they still get hot. am I suppose to change something in the fixture as well to get the full potential savings with the LED's? I have always head the bulbs don't get hot but after a while of them being on then turned off the bulbs are pretty warm but not burning hot.

Almost changed all my bulbs in our house to LED, majority purchased from Costco because the prices were great. So far Ive enjoyed them, although there are a few areas within the house I'd enjoy a warmer glow, but not gonna complain. Having vaulted ceilings and high to reach areas, I'm excited to not having to change them for a few decades. Now if I could just find something to replace 9volts for the smoke alarms in those same areas, we would be golden. Don't really enjoy ladders past 15 feet.

I have moved away, almost entirely from rosewoods for that reason, the logging industry in africa/south america is not very good about sustainability. I don't use much in the way of ebony, but will likely do away with using that as well for the same reason.
It's really ashame that they take no consideration for their forests, they haven't developed beyond hand-to-mouth practices.
My wife's family in Germany was in the forestry business for a while and they were very adamant about replanting after they cut down trees. They have since moved on from doing it themselves but have people log and replant their land. I don't know what sorts of wood they produce as my wife probably has no clue either.
