Re: Clean your electricity and save money

Like any good scam, there is some truth in this article. But most of it is bunk (I can say that word, can't I? Although I thought a different one...).

My understanding as it was explained so a firefighter can understand it is AMP = PSI and VOLTS = GPM

If you are referring to the usual "electrical wiring as plumbing" analogy, then this is backwards. Volts equals pressure, amps equals flow rate.

Re: Weird electrical issues at my home!

To the OP: If you choose to file a claim with your homeowner's insurance, please: 1. Document when the last time someone was in the house before the event. 2. Document when the first person returned to the house and how they discovered the loss. 3. Prepare to answer questions about any past electric...

Re: Pulled over for speeding, Plano

I was asked that once. I just pointed forward and said, "That way." I didn't get any more questions from the officer. Also got a warning.

Re: The thread where we thank Mr. Cotton

As the father of a college student who turns 21 in 6 weeks, I want to thank you, Mr. Cotton. Because of the Campus Carry bill, my son has decided to get his CHL this summer. I also used this bill to get him interested in the state legislature and he watched the vote yesterday with me. He now has a b...

Re: What did you get for Christmas?

I got to spent Christmas with my oldest son who was home from school. He graduates this spring and (hopefully) will be beginning gainful employment and will not be able to spend as much time at home at Christmas in the future.
