Very impressive cogitation. Have you ever submitted your writings to a N.C. newspaper?

By the way, I am being serious, not sarcastic.

Greetings yendori:

Thanks for the compliment. I have had a couple dozen letters to the editor published over the years in the various towns in which we have lived, but nothing like a feature article. I also managed to get a couple articles published in the electronics magazines (RF Design, MPD).

Sometime in the next couple months, I plan to do a Kirt's Cogitation on the renovation to our current house in Erie, PA, that details some of the measures taken to gain good energy efficiency - including a state-of-the-art AirKrete insulation in the walls. Once the article is complete, I plan to contact the local newspaper to see if they would be interested in doing a story to motivate others in the area to take similar measures toward bringing older homes up to modern standards.

Stay tuned...
