I've managed to get my electric bill down to $15 a month. No solar panels.
Either you mean $15 of actual power charges, or you have a far better setup with your power utility than we do with ours. Here, the monthly charge for being connected to the electrical grid is just over $17, another $21.82 for being connected to the natural gas. Yes, nearly $39 a month for the privilege of being connected...

Lots of natural light. No AC. Heater almost never used. Windows usually open for a constant flow of ocean breeze. When it's a colder morning (due to the marine layer), close the windows or put on a sweater. Rarely does it ever get up to 85 F during a heat-wave (Santa Ana Winds), but oddly enough that creates a cool rolling fog around here. Normally, the year round temperature is between the mid 70s or upper 60s.

Not 'weather trolling' just describing the living circumstances.

While purchasing property and dealing with Realtors, bankers, remodelers, etc. I've noticed something I am not happy with. Either I'm getting older and less patient or there is a growing narcissistic trend of people talking continuously without pause and not allowing the other person respond.

It's both, but the latter more so, and you can thank social anti-social media (Facebook, Google+, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Myspace, Pinterest, and Tumblr, etc.) for that, as it has generated an absurd level of narcissism and a self-obsessed society. Quite sad really....

What the hell are you guys talking about? It's always been that way. Most people never listen, they just wait for their turn to talk. That's as old as man itself. Listening skills are something that need to be cultivated like anything else. Employers ask for them for a reason, that's not just some HR bullshit.

What did I just say?

I just got my solar panels installed yesterday, the power company can kiss my ass.

Until it's winter, cloudy, stormy or literally too hot (if you got black solar panels), then you come running back, eh?

Anyway, congrats on being energy independent, just remember that you really are not.

Rent for a year first before purchasing a property. While renting, hang-out around different neighborhoods, watch crime statistics, see the people in their social spheres, native habitats, and get the overall vibe of each area. Then, when you find a home you like, visit it at random hours of the day and night, and check for local crime reports, complaints and disputes - talk to the local police department - find out if there are sex offenders, etc.

You know that's seriously illegal right? So not only would that not be admissible as evidence your friend could end up being criminally charged under The Interception of Communications Act and can be sued under The Harmful Access by Computer Act . That's basically mail tampering, which is a federal offense. You can see jail time for that as it's a major felony. Not to mention she'd lose her kids without question. Tell her to be smart and talk to a lawyer first. A consultation won't cost her anything.

Why do you care?

Does he need a reason to care about a fellow member of this community?

Yes.

Unfortunately, that would block access to emergency services. Say some crazy guy is stalking you, or road raging, or what if you spot a drunk driver, or if you have a medical issue, you need to be able to dial 911 or someone for assistance. Not sure if they would be able to differentiate text vs. voice usage.

Smartphone texting is the bane of every cyclist.

I avoid riding on non-neighborhood streets as much as I can. Even without cell-phones distracting them, a lot of people do not recognize bikes as valid street traffic. Neighborhoods aren't great either, but the speeds tend to be slower and there are plenty of driveways and sidewalks to escape onto.

It's pretty obvious when a person is texting - head looking down, long pauses between stops, and swerving in the lane and often outside of a lane. I'm surprised the police overlook it so much. They might be overwhelmed. Perhaps there will be a technology that recognizes the behavior and takes a photo, monitors, and/or alerts the nearest police officer.

Can Trump fire Mueller or is the story all rumor and spin?

I must admit I'm beginning to dislike even watching the news, other than to keep up to date on what my California politicians are saying or doing.

When Comey vindicated Trump on being right on what was said to him - not being under investigation (after the news repeatedly had stated the opposite) - I'm trusting the mainstream news far less than I have in the past - and that sense of mistrust has been escalating since the total debacle on the election polling results.

Meanwhile, while all eyes are one Comey, in the Senate McConnell is trying to ram through the AHCA. Two days for debate then vote. 25 million fewer will have health insurance per the CBO. Those people will still go to the ER though and those costs passed on to consumers like us.
Well, I'd say the AHCA is highly likely to screw me, seeing as I am currently getting a substantial subsidy. Here's to hoping the Ds manage to put it off somehow...

Go west!

You're clearly a smurf as demonstrated by the lack of proper punctuation and use of small case letters.

The question is ... who?

I suppose Blue knows. Inquisitive
