You may also count me in the doofus roll call. I broke down and went to Google. STC = "Scaring the Cat." Maybe I didn't get it because my cats are used to that sort of behavior.
 
Oh, by the way

On my way out of the house this morning, I turned on the porch light, and "poof" it died. Now the bulb needs to be replaced. Any takers? :rolleyes:
