For the record, I'm still in shape. Can still do 20, and could probably whip out over 100 sit ups in 2 minutes (personal best was 140 in 2 minutes). I have 4 daughters brother. I have to stay in shape to keep up with them.Jim

A Marine that says CAN'T. Unheard of!
Went into basic 6-1 195# taking bites out of telephone poles. Not only working with the tools but also a rower/oarsman from a Philly Rowing Club. DIs and PT was just a nuisance. They figured out pretty quick that my attitude was OK just the way it was and put their attention on others. Actually wound up the trainee field first for the training company after 2 weeks. Like I said a million dollar experience, That was 70 lbs ago Should never have stopped rowing. I guess our 4 boys weren't as demanding as your girls.
Keep an open mind BROYou have got to learn from other people's mistakes! Because God knows you don't live long enough to make them all yourself !!!!!!!!

Marty; ignorance, old school, and stuck in the mud are not the place to go for insulation advice. Chicken little might not be the place for current good hvac advice, much less envelope recommendations.
Find a local expert that is CURRENT. Look at the bpi standards for your situation. Get an audit.
Be cautious of advice from podiatrists regarding your teeth.Which makes more sense to you?
CONSERVATION - turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
ENERGY EFFICIENCY - leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%
DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!
Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org, or RESNET, and find an auditor near you.
