Ceiling Fan-atic

One thing that really bothers me about decorating shows is that they always replace the ceiling fan with a light fixture. While it may be more attractive, it doesn't seem functional for most of the states in the lower half of the country. I am pretty sure my car said it was 103 degrees the other day. Ya, I'm sticking with my ceiling fans!
