Just a bunch of hot air?

I am convinced that the United States is not immune from the financial turmoil and the resulting civil unrest that we have seen around the world. We cannot just simply keep printing money and paying off our debts with less and less valuable dollars because of inflation. Therefore civil unrest with the resulting interruptions of basic services is inevitable.

We already own a small propane generator but they are expensive to run for very long and it is air cooled so it is not meant to run for weeks at a time. So I thought wind generation was a good alternative.

My wife and I took some time during spring break to look at generating some of our own electrical power through wind turbine. You may have seen some of these wind turbines around they look like an ultra modern windmill. We even have a local vendor (in Norman) who has been making these for years. http://www.bergey.com

The problem is that the cheapest way to install one of these wind turbines is to feed it directly to the house and sell any surplus energy back to the utility. The only problem with this scenario is that if and when the power grid (local electric company) goes down so does the wind turbine. The power company doesn't want power fed to the lines in an emergency situation or it could shock the repair man so the wind turbine automatically quits feeding the line.

My budget was between $10,000 & $20,000 but when you consider that in order to install a wind turbine system that would run if the power is off you also need batteries, inverters and much more so the price can easily exceed $85,000 and still only power about of all of your needs. http://www.bergey.com/pages/75kw_home_sure_system

As you can see at this point wind energy is very expensive per kilo watt hour to generate. We scrapped the idea and are looking for a larger water cooled generator.

Let's be prudent out there!

Calcmoolator!

Financial calculators aren't necessarily fun, but they're a necessary evil as you navigate the waters of credit, mortgages, and more. Calcmoolator at http://calcmoolator.com/ aggregates many, including tools to figure out if it's best to rent or lease, auto loan estimates, how to pay off debt, lifetime earnings, and more. They have 30 financial calculators that make it simple to calculate costs, compare financial options, make educated financial decisions and ultimately, save money!

From daily spending to major purchases, consumers are now, more than ever, critically evaluating how and where they spend their money. Calcmoolator provides users with the tools to easily compute and understand their finances without having to be financial experts. They plan to expand their site and offer several hundred calculators by the end of this year.

By the way, if you are wondering why the 'moo' in Calcmoolator? The answer is that since the calculators were designed to help people save "Moo-la", the cash cow logo and service name was developed revolving around a fun description for the word "Moo-la..." Spend some time figuring out your finances for a better tomorrow!

Happy Surfing From Your Friends at FullNet!

I Love Lucy!

Yes, it was a hit TV Series from 1951 to 1957 and a favorite re-run for years after that... But now it's bound to be one of your favorite free services found on the web!

We have covered how difficult it is to find a way to contact companies these days, and provided some places on the web to get those hard to find numbers. The next inevitable step is still out there... being on hold forever while the one person who can answer my question answers the 472 people in front of me!

Welcome to Lucy Phone! LucyPhone is a service for consumers that allows you to put the company on hold while you are holding, and get a ring back when they finally get to you. They can be found at http://www.lucyphone.com and are a 'must have' service that is priced just right: it's free!

Here's how it works: You enter the toll free number you are trying to call, or type in the name of the company and Lucy will find it for you. Give Lucy the phone number you can be reached at and let her connect you to the company number. Lucy calls you, then calls the company and allows you to hit 'star, star' to disconnect while she stays on the line with them.

You are now free to go do whatever you like while Lucy stays on the line and listens to 45 minutes of hold music. When they answer... Lucy rings your phone and you are connected to the company!

It's kind of fun to think I am putting some big company or call center on hold while they think I am holding .. I just thought I'd pass on the fun. Give it a try.

Happy dialing!
