Would it be fair to call the penny rate increase insidious? Why only a penny when they know they're going to increase it again after the hike takes effect in January? Won't printing in increments cost more? Why not take a five cent leap and be done with it for six months? Or fifteen cents? Trying to sneak in increases by degrees won't make us stop using the mail. What alternative would we have?
Oh. Okay. Have you seen the site that sends snail mail via e-mail? Or is it vice versa? A company here is also running a radio commercial that tries to convince you to buy electricity "only as you you need it." You're asked, "Why pay for electricity you don't need?" I live in Texas, in case you forget. Carpetbaggers are still traipsing here, trying to sell us flying carpets. I don't know about you, but if I pay for electricity ahead of time, need more . . . What do I do, call and ask you to give me about $5 more? And if I need only $.30 more, will you give me a refund? Probably not, since they accept cash and credit cards only.

Anyone here watch the movie Insidious? Hmm. I did. A certain someone kept recommending it, so I watched it last night. I made this postcard two weeks or so ago. Talk about precognition? LOL. Not! Well, maybe, huh?
Need a use for all those selvages left over from panes? Check out this one:
Ta-da! Front and back, I used them. The colors are just right for the strip at the bottom. (see front) I still remember the basic principles of graphic design.
So. What do YOU think of the penny increase? I want to use penny-ante, so I did. Are you a poker player? How high are you willing to go? It costs only 44 pennies for me to send Susan mail, yet it takes 1 day and 11 hours to travel from Katy to Richland, WA.
