Well, I cook all three of my meals everyday using my charcoal grill. For extra flavor, sometimes I add some charred wood that I have shipped to me from a hickory tree farm in Texas. It makes me feel good about myself that I am reducing my electricity consumption.

I mow my yard by the light of the moon using an old 14" reel mower.

Can't we do something about that moonlight? It must be adding to our already red-hot atmosphere.

Hm, hadn't thought of that. But a full moon down here in TX is a beautiful thing. Seriously, though, I do use a reel-mower. Power comes from moi alone. I can sometimes hear the blades of grass/weeds screaming as they are decapitated. Such pleasure, such torture.

i usually just put a piece of duct tape over the moon when it comes thru my window, oddly my window is now covered in duct tape, keeping the house warmer, and not allowing the sun in.

Tell me your duct tape is made from genuine recycled imitation naugahyde, and we can all go home happy.

I hear you. 29 degrees here last night. Son of a bleach.

I'm going outside tonight and spray every aerosol can I have up into the ozone. I want my own personal little hole that lets the infrared rays through. I'm hoping to be abe to microwave popcorn in my backyard soon.

Right after I feed my neighbor's dog a couple of Hershey bars.
