Busy Weekend

Alas, the last days of March and my honey do list is dropping
and cutting up Oak trees . Zowy, sounds like fun. P S ,
just to let you know to stop the spread of oak wilt, you can
cut dead oaks down from Oct 1st to April 1st, makes
good firewood.

Boring weekend , No Martin in # 01 this weekend.

Don't suggest anything to your wife early in the morning,
she'll chew your head off. even after 19 years.

You all have a GREAT weekend .

Dems and Al are Hypocrits

Al,Al,Al,Al,Al,Al, saving the planet, right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We have Geothermal heat , What a GREAT story from
t8kthdog on the WGAT message board. P. S., WGAT stock is the
one to buy!

HOUSE # 1:A 20-room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms)
heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a
separate guest house all heated by gas. In ONEMONTH ALONE
this mansion consumes more energy than the average American
household in an ENTIRE YEAR.
The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2,400.00
per month. In natural gas alone (which last time we checked was a
fossil fuel), this property consumes more than 20 times the national
average for an American home. This house is not in a northern or
Midwestern "snow belt," either. It's in the South.

HOUSE # 2:Designed by an architecture professor at a leading
national university, this house incorporates every "green" feature
current home construction can provide.The house contains only
4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on arid high prairie
in the American southwest. A central closet in the house holds
geothermal heat pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk
300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F.) heats
the house in winter and coolsit in summer. The system uses no fossil
fuels such as oil or natural gas, and it consumes 25% of the electricity
required for a conventional heating/coolingsystem. Rainwater from
the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000 gallon underground
cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into
underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected
water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Flowers and
shrubs native to the areablend the property into the surrounding
rural landscape.

HOUSE # 1 (20 room energy guzzling mansion) is outside of Nashville,
Tennessee. It is the abode of that renowned environmentalist
(and filmmaker), darling of the liberal communist Hollywood actors,
Al ?I invented the Internet? Gore.

HOUSE # 2 (model eco-friendly house) is on a ranch near
Crawford, Texas. Also known as "the Texas White House,
" it is the private residence of the President of the United
States, George W. Bush.

Our Geothermal Bill for 2006 for heating and air conditioning,
cooling ( air conditioning) - $89.96
Heating (very little L P used ) 236.91
Total for year 353.86
Can you beat that, over 2600 sq. ft house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How Bad It Is

I first have to apologize for making such a statement!
How bad is state govornment if I would even think of
this question!

Is there payola going on with this interchange?

One of the key changes from past meetings was
the proposal of an interchange at Leopolis Road.
That interchange would provide better access to
the Stockbridge-Munsee community and
NorthStar Casino

Do I assume with the corruption in Madison that Diamond
Jim is paying the tribe back from their campaign donations
with a better interchange to the casino?

This is probably an honest up front deal which will help the casino
( which I'm all for), but again no one would even think of such a
question if we had honest state government.
