    How much do you drive a week? We have had our vehicle 10 years and every fill up up is recorded. Over the past 10 years all driving including trips averaged out to 11 miles a week. Our current average is more than that as the 11 average weekly is about half what it is to get Buddy to and...

    Well I shouldn't have been joking yesterday morning about not even feeling a breeze outside. We got whipped here in Louisville and I am VERY lucky to have my electricity back.
