East Texas Heat = High Electric Bills

Last year the East Texas heat was brutal and it reflected on our electric bills because we turned down the air conditioner to get a little relief.  That little relief cost us though because our electric bills skyrocketed.  With the return of triple digit temps this week, it looks like the cycle will continue again this year.

The Actual Risk of Skin Cancer in Texas May Surprise You

Summer is great in Texas, on boats and at the pool. It’s all fun and games until somebody gets a nasty, blistering sunburn.

I got one of those several years ago at Lake Travis in Austin. My back was bare while I was on a boat with friends, I didn’t put an ounce of sunscreen on it, and I laid on a raft for about two hours.
