    Caltrans will actually pay to replace/fix your wheel if it's damaged by a pothole on the highway. You have to be dogged, but they eventually will.



    I guess that's the end of entertaining guests.

    I looked at an apt in SanFo where the tenants had given the LR and DR completely over to the kids - no furniture but for one armchair. The rest was a play area filled with toys.

    Back to the suck - my $900 air con bill.

    I don't think I quite have these heat/ac units figured out. I kept temp down during the humid heat wave as it was unbearable. Maybe too low, but then I had them all running 24/7 in the winter and had bills in the $100 range. Does it take more power to generate ac than heat? What am I doing wrong?

    C is what kills the bills. My bill in the winter is usually in the $70-90 range, but in the summer it'll climb up to $300+

    Terrific. I also have a lot of windows so it's a heat suck in the winter and an oven in the summer.

    we leave the windows open during the day in the summer and use AC only at night. And then once we go to bed, the windows open up in the living room, kitchen, and dining area, but the AC stays on in the bedroom.

    got to catch this little event as it happened. Feel free to take a guess as to who was at fault.

    I feel like Kramer asking Jerry how to shower.

    Well, there's a Lexus driver and a taxi, so it's a toss-up.

    Gents -

    I am heading to the Bay Area on business for 2 weeks starting next week. I'll be staying/working in Redwood City, but should have plenty of free time in the evenings and over one weekend. In light of the facts that San Francisco is a topic here almost as often as NYC and that I trust in (most) of your cultural and indulgent tastes, any recommendations in/around San Francisco are appreciated (PM is fine).

    Cheers

    Well, first, get the hell out of Redwood City--which, FYI, is not a city and has no redwoods.
