Re: Big Brother is everywhere

CCinOC,

How about a simple building code that requires street numbers on buildings to be uniform and clearly visible?

Re: Attorneys out of control....

It's just abuse of the legal system.

Colovion,

You can buy a tank, however. Really. It's perfectly legal.

Re: Update on solar pv for our home

The utility has decided that our west-facing roof doesn't have a clear a sight line to the horizon as they'd like (mature trees) so they've nixed the rebate on it.
