A Good Example

Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.

Education

Education consists mainly of what we have unlearned.

Home Energy Report

Yesterday I got my “Home Energy Report” from Gulf Power… I cam in #6 out of 100…

Sixth!!! Hell, I don’t like second place… of course no one told me this was a competition.

The report’s fairly interesting… I used 967KWh, my “efficient” neighbors used 1,354, and “all” neighbors used 1,740… so I use 29% less energy than my “efficient” neighbors… which is one of the reasons why their “Energy Select” doesn’t make sense to me.

Of course another thing that doesn’t make sense to me is why I need another account with Gulf Power to view this information online — seems like it should have just been “connected” with my bill pay account, or at least I should be able to have a “master” account that I can select what services I want.

The World
