Your column about your electric meter made me smile. My parents were always after us to turn off the lights, not waste water, put on sweaters, etc. Our electric company in Illinois is Com Ed, and my dad used to say to me, "Com Edna, you left the light on again!" Thanks for the little trip down memory lane.


I just read your article about your electric bill, and I guess we all had parents who told us to turn off the lights, put a sweater on, etc. You know what? I still do the same thing! I am always telling my daughter to turn off the kitchen light when she leaves. How funny we are!
