But Can It Handle My Skid Marks?

Crap. We may be on the market for a new washing machine. Our current one has gone all goofy. It'll run for a while, then stop for a while, then start up again for a while, then stop again for a while, the re-start again, then stop for a spell...

You probably get the idea...

March is a three-pay month for me, and also the month in which the company I work shells out its annual bonus. With that extra coin, I was looking forward to a fat stack of comic books sometime this weekend, but no. This had to happen. Isn't that always the way?

Oh well. If anyone took the time to view the money-saving tips on the Green Party site that I linked earlier, you'd know that the gentleman who hosted those made many of his switches while changing homes. So perhaps we'll be able to turn this lemon into lemonade and take an unscheduled plunge with the help of the fine folks at EnergyStar.

Along the same lines, we've talked about going Bullfrog soon. I've still to come across anything but positive words for them, and we figure that if that continues we'll make the switch, appropriately enough, on Earth Day. Seemed like a good time.
