Dec 15th 2012 12:35PM Bats like it HOT. So turn down the AC setting. They will flee the cold for warmer climates. In Wisconsin we need to paint bat houses black to get them warm enough for the bats to settle in. A bat house on top of the building, soaking up sunlight, will be a better roosting than the cold AC ducts inside of the building. And since bats chow down massive amounts of bugs all night your exterminator costs should shrink. Bats live between the bark and trunk of a tree in the wild, so they are quite comfy in an opening 3/4 inch high by 2 inches wide. Time to check around the HVAC unit on the roof, around window frames and any opening to the outside for gaps that not only allowed the bats to get in but also waste a lot of heating and cooling energy.

Apr 17th 2011 8:40AM Multi-tasking:
Roomba is vacuuming the bedroom, Scooba is doing the kitchen floor, the dishwasher is getting the breakfast dishes, the washing machine has the last load running, my work clothes are in the dryer and I'm sitting at the computer checking the news.
Apr 12th 2011 12:13AM My old GPS units are now shelf stock in the basement. My wife bought me a Motorola Milestone Android powered smart phone for Christmas. This smart phone is far better than either of the GPS units that it replaced.
Feb 22nd 2011 7:59PM $5.00 gasoline is still less expensive Per mile than recharging an electric plug in. Especially if you are in New York or California. Then ad to that a $40,000 Volt. A $20,000 car and $20,000 in gasoline will go a lot further.
Feb 22nd 2011 6:25PM Electric cars will continue to be a retirement community novelty until the range and battery life issues are resolved. They were tried in the 70s, again in the 90sand again they are trying. If there was a chance, the "Think" and the "GEM" would be on the road now. Who can afford a $100,000 trinket from Telsa? Or for that matter a $40,000 experiment from GM? Why does every body talk like recharging an electric car is free? To recharge an electric car in Wisconsin at $.12 per kilowatt hour is about $12.00 or about $.26 per mile.
Feb 11th 2011 5:28PM When a National bank sends an E-Mail, that I need to reactivate an account that I don't have, the account log in is "Dumbf--k" with the password "A--hole". Basically I let them know that I'm screwing with them.
Jan 17th 2011 8:04PM This looks like an extremely complicated Roundabout. I was not to familiar with roundabouts until one was put in an intersection that I traveled regularly. Even with a tractor/trailer the roundabout beat the heck out of sitting at a stop light with no one in sight.
Dec 6th 2010 8:14PM And now people are realizing why many of us in Wisconsin were glad to see him go. He could have retired a local hero instead of a worn out loser.
Oct 5th 2010 12:23AM My wife was looking into the Regal for her next car. There something that needs clarification first.. It seems that if you change the engine oil to any oil other than GM's own oil you will void the engine warranty. We are not talking SAE grade or specific weight, but rather exact brand name oil.
