Dedication

This website is devoutly dedicated to all of Larry's friends and associates, both early and late, who have influenced and mentored him. However, it also should be noted that, being who they are, a majority of them have been late most of the time.

King Solomon & the Power Company

Dear Chuck,

Your comments remind me of King Solomon's observation that, "There is nothing new under the sun". (Ecclesiastes, Chapter 1, Verse 9).

Postscript: Also, please visit the "Inquiry to the Power Company" entry at this website, and read the additional footnote therein at the end of that entry.


Dear Delegate Kump,

Ah..times change. When I was a kid growing up in D.C. the electric meters were inside the house. If the meter reader came by and no one was home (an unlikely event, this was post WW II and Dad worked and Mom stayed home and raised the kids and was considered a "domestic engineer") he would leave a postage paid card in the door for the customer to fill it in and then send it in. And after 3 or 4 months of this they would call and set up an appointment time to get an actual reading.

What you are suggesting is a "return" to the "old ways."

More power to you (I know, bad pun)!!!

Grace and Peace

J. Charles "Chuck" Riecks
