I need to paint my previously painted cement block porch while putting in the least money, time, and effort. What can be painted over a chipped paint job without it chipping again? [more inside]

We've decided to move. We currently live in Omaha, NE and are considering moving to Cedar Rapids, IA, where I grew up, because greatschools.org indicates that the schools there kick ass compared to Omaha and vicinity. (Our kids are 3 and 1, so we've got time, but you know... no time like the present.) We're still a little conflicted about whether to go to CR or not, but I'll save that question for next week.
This week's question IS: what should we do to our house to get it ready to sell? [more inside]

I know, I know, light bulbs seem to fail in clusters, but I don't think this is to do with putting a bunch of lights in at the same time.
This week for instance, I got up and turned on my kitchen lights (8 x 50w small spots) and one blew and tripped my Ground Floor Light fuse.
A day later and I get home and turn on the same lights, another goes and trips the lights circuit again.
Later in the week, another goes in my study.
I replaced all the bulbs today.
I turn them on, everything is fine, I go outside and turn on the porch/side lights (3 x 60w) and two of them blow.
I nearly always have an inop light or two.
My question is this :
Is there an electrical fault which might explain this pattern of failure ?
