It has always seemed to me that the $5 (and perhaps $1 more) are just another "tax" you pay to have the boat tax part kept local. If a town were to forgo the agent fee and tax collection fee as...

Message time stamp

I've noticed that the time stamp on new posts seems to be still EDT, rather than back to standard time. Newest posts thus can be stamped later than the current time. This is not huge, but I find I...

Once you hit 70, a season pass at Gunstock is $49. That's almost free skiing. As for Loon crowding, midweek isn't bad at all. And taking that train ride across the main parking lot to go between the...

Presumably that advice about keeping tanks full to avoid condensation inside pertains to gasoline tanks and is not meant for propane tanks. That won't happen with a propane tank. The pressure inside...

For a new house, your first thought should be to make it superinsulated and very tight. The cost to do this is relatively little extra, and the savings in heating/cooling costs pays for the extra...
