Just paid $2.99 Prem. tonight in Nicholasville. Is that considered a win or lose?

I have been spending the past three days trying to get electricity, gas and water hooked up to the new shop. Considering my move is all of 50 yards and with the same three utilities you would think it would be simple.

Two of the utilities still use carbon paper applications and receipts, all require that I be there at the very moment they flip the lever and none seem to be able to handle a schedule that is better than "he should be in that area tomorrow". Then "he" shows up with an index card with instructions written in crayon.

The concept of "transfer data" or "just move the account address" on the computer provided looks as if I had just said I was from Mars and wanting to impregnate their light pole.

In other words, I might not have been such good company as I froze while waiting on the three wise men to wander into the complex.

Thats a good warning because there is a big crater in my chair where my balls sat, I think that was the problem, the last guy who sat in it suffered from cranial discention into the anal cavity. In layman's terms, he was so skinny that his head fell thru his ass and he hung himself.

$1.40/l for PULP, that equals $5.29 per US Gallon.

At exchange rate of 0.86 that equals $4.55US per gallon of PULP.

Diesel over here is the same price as PULP.
