Of course this is something that a friend of mine from church got me into. Like me he is retired, but that gets to be really boring and he found a job delivering vehicles for a dealership here in town. He has a powerful pick up truck with a fifth wheel trailer hitch and the dealer has a trailer which can carry up to four vehicles, depending on how heavy they are.

He showed me a link and told me how I could just “click here and lower my electric bill.” I politely declined. I was getting a bit frustrated because he was sounding like a pushy salesman. I was wondering if he was doing some multi-level marketing thing since he was so persistent. It turns out that he really was just happy with how much he was saving on his own electric bill at his house.
He is like me. He has a big house and a big garage detached from the house. He has a separate electric meter on the garage building like I do. So, we are both paying two electric bills for one property. Continue reading My Neighbor Had to Push Me into Saving Money on Our Electric Bills in Texas
Wow, this might be the oldest weaving art video ever recorded.
