Theres a new huge plant here in Nevada that is making the glass panels that use solar power and the Senator from our state, Senator Reed says when utilized properly the solar panels there alone could heat/cool the entire country for a year. We can do it, depend on our own abilitys to generate and hopefully this fuel gouging by other nations has taught us a hard lesson...

Chatty,
Right U R! America has to produce its own oil supply and not count on other countries. And those tiny cars are kind of cute anyway. Lawmakers R considering lowering the speed limit and that would help. It might even cut down on auto accidents and save some lives!

I've been checking, esp. since I saw the coverage about this very thing on cable news this very week. They piece had the Texas State Commissioner on talking about how this problem is on the increase... in Texas, it is up 30% for complaints against service stations. He said, if we find this happening to us, to report it to the State Department of Agriculture. This bit of info wasn't in the email I received. So, it is happening, at least in Texas.

We need power to cool down our swimming pool! Yesterday, I turned on the irrator (sp) and looked outside and there was a line of birds sitting on the fence, taking a shower in the spray. It was so cute. They don't often find water in the desert! I may become the community swimming pool for birds.

Dianne, I have a big bird bath in one of my gardens and the birds never use it. Isn't that odd? You should take a picture and share it with your bird!

GMA had a news segment about gas stations increasing the cost of gasoline, when customers inserted credit cards into the pump. They suggested folks' look at the receipt after each fill up.

Gims, great advice. I hadn't hear that. The only advice I've been able to put to use is getting gas in the car early in the AM before the liquid has swollen from the heat.

Meanwhile, here in Daytona, all the pumps I look at are a year behind in being checked.

Now that would be a factor! How often do regulators check the pumps?
