Turtle The life of an ecomodder's wife...

I'm new here .My husband introduced me to this homepage."Waxychicken" Since he discovered it he is been driving me nuts about building an electric car. Which I totally agree with . Anything to save us money. I haven't been to the grave yard yes though. I read some where here now we are married he has to take me to the grave yard. Well I haven't been there yet. May be later when he has to go buy more parts something like controllers he keeps talking about...Anyway I'm here to learn about ways on how to save money on home energy.So I hope I'm in the right place before summer in Az hits I would like to find ways to lower our electric bill. This is it for now...

Smile Hello Mrs Waxy,

Good Morning, Greetings & Salutations,
I am happy to see the rest of the family getting involved and interested. Good on ya.(As they say down under)
My wife reads the Forum. (A funny thing happened on my way to the Forum...)
I started a thread for her re-learning to drive. (Barbara's Learning Curve)
Glad to have you. There is a lot of info in the Saving @ Home thread.
See you there.
Schultz

PS Now my Daughter and my Wife are driving for FE. Driving me bonkers along the way.

Question Gotta ask

I gotta ask.
What does 100% Puerto Rican have to do with anything?
Is there some cultural difference that I should have learned but didn't cause i was probly not paying attention ?

Your statement brings to mind the song "Cinnamon Girl"
I can't remember who sang it.
But I always liked it.

Welcome to the forums.

Right now I see no chance in my gf joining either... she finds these things merely annoying right now.

Greetings and salutations .

Saving money on home energy (or just general home living costs) is something that is starting to peak my interest too. I see this is your one and only post. I hope to see more of your insights.
