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...

Sailin, what you listed is quite an accomplishment! It took not only a lot of research but also a willingness to alter habits and environment to achieve the goals you were looking for. Nicely done!...

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...

Looks like an amazing trip!

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.

One misunderstood thing about heating and efficiency is that each time you go to...

I've used infrared, really good for making a person or area warm that it is pointed at. I personally don't like the "cooking me" feeling of an infrared pointed toward me. What I prefer are oil...

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...

You might find this out in a few years, but I bet you end up with 2 boats. A boat big enough for 12 doesn't end up being a very good platform for even tubing, and if the kids get into any more...

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.

Leave it on, and it maintains the temp you have it set for. Temp drops a...

I would re-visit your thoughts on LED bulbs. You save around 50 watts by replacing a 60 watt incandescent with an LED. Let's say you have 6 different lights on, some for 4-6 hours per day, some...
