    First they'll have to figure out why I'm ~3 times more wasteful than my most conservative neighbor. And, if they're listening in they are likely to hear, "why am I out of beer again"

    The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    Those reports crack me up.

    I am far from a wasteful user and am extremely conservative regarding the use of electricity in my home but, I always seem to be 2 to 3 times more "wasteful" than the efficient neighbor!

    I picture them, in the summer, running around their house in a swimsuit because their temp is like 90 degrees and no lights on with dirty dishes and clothes. Solar panels on all sides of their house.

    In the winter, they are huddled in blankets next to their fireplace drinking cold chocolate so they don't have to use their electric stove!

    I keep getting those "...use more than your more efficient neighbor letters."
    I'm willing to pay for what I use, so, so what?
    Take care - Steven
