Since the new fave project is a Sony FM Tuner, I'll have to find the one that's in a box in the basement.

Where does one get decent metal work these days for less than the price of a new car?  Aside from those Hammond boxes...

Somehow, I don't think that Sony tuner will fit the bill.

Not sure your question has an answer. Especially since cars now cost $41K, and can only go 40 miles, of "pollution free" driving.

(And don't forget: electricity is also free!)

Yes. How much do you guys in the US pay per kWh?

Depends on the time of the year. In Texas, a lot more in the summer.

In the northeast United States, it's also a lot more in the summer.  It's a lot more in the winter, too.

Not here. Cheaper in "off peak" season. I forget the actual months, but basically a lot more, just in the summer.

I'm sure day/night pricing is on the way. As I have a cousin who works for a utility company, I do all my "heavy lifting" at night. I'm  sure he appreciates it.

Wish I would get a price break..............I can't sleep at night, so more reason for me to do stuff at night.

But, if O' Bow-Mao has his way...............

Had to Google "Cap and Trade Plan" .......... http://www.lvrj.com/opinion/42869262.html

Oh my, great. Absolutely the right times to plan such attacks. What a cretino.

Here, we have day/night difference and also winter/summer. Cheaper in summer, because there is less water in winter....

Now, they say it will arrive earlier, than expected. Guess I shouldn't complain, but then I have already done one thing out of character.

The poor guys at the photocopy machine discovered that since only two copies have been ordered (yours and mine), they'll be done sooner than expected.
