Propane?
Can't imagine getting LILCO giving a discount.



And I'm back... cat seems to be okay. Maybe he was just slower than usual to warm up his old achey bones.

As far as the gas discount - we built out house at the same time as b-i-l (next door). When we would sign contracts, we'd ask if there was a discount to get both of our business. More often than not, they gave us something. In our area, we can go with any gas (okay, propane - the kind in the buried tank) we wanted - we weren't tied into BGE gas or anything.

And whoo-hooo! Do I get a "I speak Dname!" badge?

How have you been liking the dodgeball entries? Some have been pretty funny - and that isn't what I pictured Orc to look like - at all.

Yes, well since the theme was my suggestion and then he refined it I am enjoying it immensely. It shot right down to the lowest derivative, but its been fun. I am surprised he posted an actual photo, but ohh well it's his face, although sometimes it's a bit weird to see him looking out of those images.

I never heard of that, but we get the gas through a pipe underground. No discounts.
I don't think I've ever seen a propane truck here.

Yep, we get the truck driving through the neighborhood all the time - sometimes it's an oil truck, sometimes a gas truck. Each time we're crossing our fingers hoping it's not going to stop at our house to fill up our tank and drop off the big old cherubic bill. Unfortunately, they filled ours up last week and the bill was shoved through the door. Yippee

Last year, the owner of the house daughter rented a room in, went away for the winter.
He basically left daughter and the other kid who DJ's at the radio station with the house and the cat by themselves.
The owner figured they would heat the house with the wood stove.
That lasted a day.
He did a lot of griping about the propane bill!

This year daughter and the same kid are doing a winter rental. It didn't include heat.
They freak out every time the truck comes! The bill is more than half their rent.
None of these houses are really insulated for the winter. Which is stupid when they are open year round.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

Ok, I'm home.

I had 2 beers and stomach feels fine. Yea!

The gas thing I'm talking about is leasing our mineral rights for pumping natural gas out of the ground in our area. There's a huge pocket of gas under the state of TX and gas drilling has become quite the thing. We've gotten an initial offer but we're banding together as a neighborhood to get a better offier.

Time to go get some supper. Cereal I think.

...a Jersey special. Seems the only time it gets warm in the winter is if there's a torrential downpour coming, that promptly freezes hard. Hopefully we'll only get a few more weeks of this silliness.

We too live in what used to be a farm, but we were among the last houses to be built. Our lot was completely clear - not a bush or tree to be had when we moved in. We did get some HUGE boulders when we dug the basement, so they are scattered around the yard. We haven't gotten to the landscaping against the house (oh boy, that's this years' project), but we've planted 15-20 of thundercloud plum trees, 2 maples, 2 dogwoods, crepe myrtle, pear and two weeping cherries (and a partridge for the pear tree...). Can't say I want to plant any more trees any time soon.

What part of the country are you in? Or did you not answer that on purpose?

Morning everyone. It's lively in here.

EDIT: Okay, maybe not so much. Well, my woot friends, I am embarking on a magical journey... to Kentucky. So really, not so magical, but I hope it'll still be fun. The hotel may or may not have wireless and I may not even care once I'm there. I'll be home again Sunday, so if I'm scarce between here and there, you know why.

Morning all. They're saying we're going to get snow this afternoon and tonight. I'm telling you, that just ain't right. It's just a few weeks until Spring. WE do NOT get snow this close to Spring.
