Well, I just shut both of them upstairs a few minutes ago and semi-closed the one downstairs, set the temperature a little higher, and it's quite comfortable downstairs now.
Rarely is anyone upstairs during the day.
I'll do the opposite with the vents tonight and get a fan for me downstairs after everyone's gone to bed.
That makes a lot more sense to me.

You need ceiling fans to do any good.

"If five years ago some pundit or some politico had predicted that Chicago conmen do not change when they come to Washington, that ends-justifying-the-means radicals never become across-the-aisle moderates, surely we would have dubbed him unhinged, delusional, a racist, and a hater. Yet Obama’s own hubris accomplished all that and more — in a way that his most vehement critics could never have imagined." --Dr. Victor Davis Hanson (07/07/2013)

Before you were in a condo and had the insulation of the units beside, above and below you. Now you don't.
The one-story condo had one other unit beside ours, a garage underneath and no one above.

Our townhome obviously has no one above or below but units on both sides which are very well-insulated.

The "no noise" factor is very important since hubby has to go to bed early and get up early. Very quiet here. So was our former condo.

You must be the stupidest mofo on this threaad to not know how much milk prices have increased since Obama took office.
But, how about you post some actual numbers to back your bullshit up.
I'll help you with the sentence structure:
Milk in 2007 was $_.__ a gallon.
Milk in 2008 was $_.__ a gallon.
Milk in 2009 was $_.__ a gallon.
and milk today is $_.__ a gallon.
Or, pick any food item you desire. The more food items you pick, the more accurate your assessment of inflation will be. I just picked milk because everyone not getting food stamps feels the inflation.
GFY, my statement was accurate fkface, do your research and don't forget that you said, "consumer prices."

I guess Homer was paying $4.00 a gallon for milk in 2008 then. I was paying a little over $2.00 a gallon for the same brand. Today, it's over $4.00 a gallon.
But, I don't get food stamps, so I have to feel the inflation.
Homer probably gets food stamps and hasn't got a clue what the inflation really amounts to because, if the price of food goes up, he gets more food stamps.... like the current farm bill.
The price of milk is a poor indicator of inflation because of government price controls.

I haven't bought a gallon of milk since the 90's, I don't drink milk. Wife will buy a 1/2 gallon every now and then for cereal. You shouldn't drink so much milk at your advanced age.

I haven't gotten food stamps since I was a child growing up in the 70's, wasn't really my choice, my parents insisted that I eat.

There is no inflation, prices go up every year.

Quit trying to manufacture yet another conspiracy theory.

<quoted text>Look at the Dumbest Generation entering the job force here in America. They can't even count change. Seems to me the Greatest Generation, while a small fraction of money was spent on education, certainly they were more educated than the Dumbest Generation (aka Generation Zero) with millions thrown at them. Certainly you realize that the bric countries that are up and coming have a 100 times better work ethic than these Iphone educated punks of today in America. GDumbs don't have to think-they let the media tell what to think. At best, the Dumbest Generation might be remembered as useful idiots. At worst, it could be remembered as the generation that lost the great American heritage, forever.
So, you'd rather tax the next generation into bankruptcy with usury interest rates on student loans than tax the dumbest Wall Street generation of Big Banking CEO's that got us into the worst financial mess that we've ever faced since the Great Depression. Go figure.

Here's the bullshit Lily. This trainer is completely lying. If someone trains in anything but, in thus case MMA for a year, he would be well beon the preliminary teachings or, his trainer is ass. Not bragging but, I've fought in the streets for years. I've always been above weight &, I've never loss a fight. Mind you, no one taught me to fight. You learn as you go. I did take wrestling when I was around 11 years old but, I quit in less than a month because I had no one my age & in my weight class so, that doesn't count. No sport, not even pro sports take a year to get beon the preliminary stages. Anyone with the knowledge of an adult knows that's just stupid!

California ,the first state ahead of all the others ,in implementing Obamacare and expanding its Medicaid coverage so far has shown it to be a success. What will hurt Obamacare will be blood sucking wealthy Republican governors refusing to request expansion of Medicaid programs in their states. How petty and cheap can these millionaire Republican governors be to go against the wishes of their own constituents who want more purchasing power with more healthcare coverage choices.
