- A better way to write dates:
I put dates in: Year, Month, Day order. This is consistent with the way
we write numbers, keeping that which changes the fastest to the
right. Time, if included would follow. Decimal parts of a second
would be further to the right. I prefer 24 hour time. If you use
AM-PM, logically it should be before the hour. This makes searching
on "time" much faster and easier. I would like to get the world to
change to this format. Start by using it when you write checks.
- A healthy diet
- Using a computer

- Get a
Watts Up?Or equivalent power meter so you can
monitor the power consumed by appliances --even when turned off.
- Use compact florescent lights--And turn them off when not in use.
- Turn the TV off when not watching it. With the programming we
have today, I suspect you would be better off if you spent less time
- Most household electricity is consumed by the Refrigerators,
don't run two.
- Avoid using refrigerated air conditioning. Evaporative coolers are
much more efficient.
- Saving Gasoline
