40 Days of Kia Soul EV Ownership and Time of Use Electricity
I’m 40 days into owning a 2016 Kia Soul EV. I don’t like it, I loooove it!

70s Pyrex, Curtains and Ugly Washer Hookups
On Thursday night, I received a Facebook message from a stranger whom I purchased some Pyrex from off of my local Buy/Sell/Swap Facebook page last month. She still had a few pieces leftover from her onslaught of buyers and wanted to know if I wanted to take a look at the remaining pieces and buy … Continue reading 70s Pyrex, Curtains and Ugly Washer Hookups
