*I heard a commercial this morning for "energy gift certificates" from a local gas utility — "Give The Gift of Energy."  Whoa, yeah, that’s what everyone wants in their stocking this year — frickin’ heat!  It’s absolutely disgusting, and so very disheartening given all the other energy issues in the news at this point in time.  No wonder I haven’t been able to lose the Scrooge.
