    Dave
    Yes, I'll move it there, since its not about equipment.

    However all warnings and points issued before the move will remain.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Just fired my Propane stealer. Tank charges, environmental surcharges, fuel charges. I have two tanks so they double up and I have to call them every time.

    I found a local company that give me the tank and only charge for the gallons I buy from them. They also removed the two tanks after pumping them out and set their tank for free. Their normal pricing was .60 less a gallon than my previous stealer who also tried to charge me 800 bucks to replace their old and rusty tank last year.

    Just shop around... last I paid was 1.99 a gal plus tax.


    On another note:



    Internal Revenue 'Service'

    US Postal 'Service'

    Telephone 'Service'

    Cable TV 'Service'

    Civil 'Service'

    Federal, State, City, & public 'Service'

    Customer 'Service'

    I thought that "Service" meant a voluntary giving of oneself for the good of others.

    But today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to 'Service' a few cows. BAM!!! It all came into focus. Now I understand what all those agencies are doing to us.

    You are now as enlightened as I.

    Succinctly put Dad.
    The picture in my avatar is of the Houston Ship Channel and was taken from my backyard. I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

    Yeah, at least a fellow Houston-Texan did...

    The answer is/was tropical foliage plants (non-flowering)... they were the rage back then.

    When Jimmy Carter deregulated n-gas... I saw the handwriting on the wall and sold the nursery. Good move... as growers drove each other into the ground and buying plants from the Brownsville area was cheaper than growing them.

    Now one cannot keep 12K ft of greenhouses perfectly clean all season... <grin>

    Dave, are you part of a co-op?

    we have a local rural co-op for electricity.
    lowest prices in this area. they used to
    give dividends...not they put it into a
    death benefits fund. so you never get it..
    but your family does.

    Yes. We get our propane from a popular co-op.

    It can get a bit nippy but it can also get pretty warm. It's almost time to put the hoodie in the closet and break out the Carhartts!

    Here's a graph of our average and record temps that I copied from The Weather Channel website.

    yep..your temps would turn me into a popsicle.
    summer with low RH..wouldn't be a problem.

    my little co-op is very popular. people on large utility
    company lines wish they were with the co-op.
    a few of my clients have bought property when building
    new with the co-op as motivation to move in rural area.

    so...general forum people...any propane prices y'all would
    share?? sure would like that feedback.
    not suprised that La.'s are highest rate so far.

    that makes me feel better. Michigan prices are a big ten cents more.
    still.. too high for any part of the country IMO.

    NG gas is getting piped in all over so people are dropping it pretty fast.
