I worry about our heating bills

If there is anything that I have learned about living out in the country, where we do, it is that open fields can be very detrimental when it comes to comfortable living.

I should take some measurements

Once a month I really like to get drunk with a night out. I blame my brother Trent for this though. Trent loves to go out and party. He is a really bad influence. We basically hit the town, drink and then stumble back to my apartment. It is a messy affair. Trent always gets […]
