Scott’s have the same reputation here. I was brought up believing I should have enough money in the bank to cover 6 months of bills. In this government shut down, I was shocked at the news reporting that when people missed their first paycheck they couldn’t make house and car payments or didn’t have enough for food. Now I know why I drive an old 2003 truck and how the other people drive 2018’s and 19’s. Do I feel bad for the government employees-- you figure it out. TomC
Heating oil? Just after I built my house, the gas company put a main line down the road in front of my house… I had just built and outside boiler and turned down the opportunity to get the gas run up to my house, at probably a fair price. Fortunately a friend who worked at the gas&electric company heard I turned it down. She called and made it clear that I was missing a great opportunity. I signed up. Not long after, I had the first of a series of heart attacks, and could not feed the wood boiler. That lady really saved my bacon.
