Re: # of monthly bills you pay?

I see with my minimal monthly bills that I am very close to being an off the grid elderly recluse. One can only hope the water well and the septic system don't give out.

Re: No Car Seat...No Ticket, Either

I was just thinking that my 9 year is so tall that the airbag wouldn't be hitting her in the face. But then I got to thinking that if you are in a wreck, even though you hope the seat belts work properly you can't be absolutely sure how ones face is [more]

Re: Peak auto?

In the urban vs rural (or suburb-auto) life style debate I think that there might be a definite age (energy-level) split with the accompanying tolerance for the new and lots of stimuli that younger people seem to have. I'm definitely running down, [more]
