Thanks everyone for the ooo's and aww's!

One fun fact about our nephew the search and rescue guy - by day he is a butcher!

I remember 10 years ago TB was getting baptized in our church and members of both of our families came to see and I had a lunch at our house afterwards. We were at our old house and my Dad sat in a plastic chair and the legs sunk into the grass and he went over into the entrance to the crawlspace. He was a big man, but my niece's husband picked him up like he was a doll and placed him in a lounge chair nearby. Dad was okay - had a few stitches in his head and a bad headache, but I will never forget the quick action of this young man (also a very big guy). I can really see why he got the award. Oh, and of the 60,000 awards given in Canada, only 4,000 were for public service, so he was 1 in 4,000!

Kylie, in the building that I live in, we have central air condition and heat. But the best part it is all included in my low rent. I can run either one 24/7 if I choose to.

I'd hate that, I think, Addie. I like controlling my environment. Of course, it's pretty easy here in Louisiana because my electric averages $18-$22 a month. Must be because of the Mississippi River.

Maybe PowerPlantOp can explain why the electric here is so cheap.

Zhizara I don't have to ever give it a second thought. The heat and AC are just there like the windows are. And my rent is lower than your electric bills.

DH just surprised me by bringing home lunch from one of my favorite places - a pork bbq sandwich and fries. Yummy!

...when I stepped on the scale Monday morning after one week of watching my carbs. Six pounds lighter than last Monday!
