With the start of the new year came the federal law that incandescent light bulbs can no longer be made.  Changing over to the new CFL bulbs is proving to be more energy efficient and saves you money over time. Lots of consumers still have questions, and reporter David Romero sits down with PNM looking for answers.

Things parents say to their children can have a big impact, maybe more than you planned since your words can be interpreted differently than you would like. Clinical social work and therapist Claire McMahon Thomas has some tips on what not to say to your kids.

New Mexico has its own culture, but it’s also a great place to experience the culture of Mexico. One way to do that is by visiting the “Arte en la Charreria: The Artisanship of Mexican Equestrian Culture” happening at the Albuquerque Museum. Joining us to talk about the exhibit is Elizabeth Becker, curator of education for the museum. Also here are Christina, Alva, Bianca and Hector of Ballet Folklorico Fiesta Mexicana who perform at the museum tomorrow.

Many of our troops fight for our freedoms but come back suffering from traumatic brain injuries or post-traumatic stress disorder. Paws and Stripes promises to help those wounded vets live a full and rich life as they deserve. UFC fighter Carlos Condit is hosting an event Sunday to help raise funds to train service animals for veterans with PTSD and TBI. Paws and Stripes co-founder jim Stanek is also here to talk about the program. (The sponsorship dinner costs $50 a person and is Sunday at 5 p.m. at Vernon’s Steakhouse, 6855 4th St. NW in Los Ranchos.)

We’ll be talking about something slithering with Bob Myers, director of the American International Rattlesnake Museum in Albuquerque.

Kathryn Venzor, curator of education at the ABQ BioPark, tells us about classes beginning for toddlers and pre-school aged kids this month.

Say you’re having a really bad day, but then you go to a coffee shop and someone buys your order for you. Lori DeAnda, founder of KHeaven Sent, is here to talk about improving lives through random acts of kindness and other good deeds.

On Monday we’ll see you back here on 2 KASA This Morning. Did you welcome a puppy into your family this past holiday season? We’ll be talking Puppy 101. And we’ll tell you about some free yoga classes and where you can go train for long-distance runs.  This and more starting Monday morning at 7 here on 2 KASA This Morning.
