• We drive by the landfill everyday and there is a torch which burns off the escaping methane. Why isn't that gas captured and used for something productive? I'm sure there must be a reason. Is it a good one?

The home inspector spent several hours this morning evaluating the house we're buying. He says that it is in "fantastic shape." So, we're ready to wrap up the deal and close escrow as soon as the seller is ready to take our money.

I'm trying to sort through all the ISPs mumbo jumbo to figure out which provider works best in our area -- and our situation. We probably don't need cable TV (broadcast works great).
