John, you are very knowledgeable in this area and I very much respect that. Maybe I'm wrong about some of what I'm saying, but in my opinion, defending Eversource is not a great position to be in.

Smart phones are here to stay, only to increase in use, that one is a complete dead end for most people, myself included. From an energy use standpoint it's not a huge user, I think the larger...

I really enjoyed watching that. Tons of fun, and I thought the support vessel being another sailboat showed a good level of sailing skill as well.

This has become a huge problem, it is fast and easy to remove cats and scrap value is very high. I know a few businesses that have had multiple ones stolen in their private lots. Where were you...

Thank you, I wasn't aware of those problems, will do some reading. I've used them for many years with zero issues, which doesn't mean I won't take your comments seriously and look into it.

The "drive 15 miles to save $1.73 on filling the car" phenomenon is as old as gas stations. I'd say a few generations ago it was even more prevalent. More of a psychological study since it never...

Radiant floor heat is awesome. Not fast response like forced hot air or hydronic baseboards, but nice level heat.

This morning was the first time I actually felt chilly in quite a while. Like the crisp air, don't like the signal of summer being close to over.

Summer does seem short, I try to start it in May...

Yes, I guess I should have said block instead of ignore, that's what I meant. Seems like it would solve the problem, at least for that user.

I found it to be a trade-off on which side to access. West side is deep and safe, but more exposed so on a windy day anchoring and accessing shore is harder. East side so rocky I got out of the...

I don't understand why running the hot water heater for a few hours a day on a timer or switch saves much, if any, energy.
