Hello there, Mommies and Daddies and Little Kiddies everywhere:
Now that i have tried the sweet potato diet and failed miserably and now that I have tried the avocado diet and failed miserably and now that I have tried will power and failed miserably my next trip is — wait for it — wait for it —- “Subliminal Weight Control Videos” on You Tube!

I will let you know how it turns out.

We are waiting for the utility crew to come and install our new electronic “Smart Meter” — the one that is read from a moving vehicle instead of by a warm body tramping across your manicured lawn in full sight of the nearest vicious dog … or radical terrorist … or disgruntled home owner.

I have read reports where these things have mis-reported utility usage to the point that some customers have allegedly received doubled and even trebled bills and when the customer complains to the utility they are told, “The meter reading is accurate. If your bill has doubled or trebled then it is definitely your fault. Pay the bill or make arrangements to pay it off over time or get your utilities cut off!”

We shall see how this nightmare works out. It might not be a nightmare at all. It might be one of those rare cases of a big company with multimillion dollar profit expectations doing something nice for the convenience of their customers …. for a change. LOL.

I guess the neighborhood dogs are going to have to learn to chase rabbits instead of post office route personnel and utility meter readers. LOL.

  1. Those smart meters have proved to be disastrous over here. For one thing they rely on a ‘stable internet connection’ and powerful wi-fi. Neither of these can be guaranteed. More Internet snooping perhaps? It gets you wondering…

    • Even the innocent refrigerator can now transmit your voice and your image to the snoops via small hidden cameras that look like interior lights and other things. Nothing is safe anymore. The common microwave oven is a spy and almost every convenience you purchase for the home these days has one or more recording devices installed and tuned to a security frequency where the snoops can tune in once the devices have been installed and activated.
