Thursdays Are For Cooking….

I’m returning to the stovetop, because the forecast is for very, very cold weather in my AO next week. In fact, it is predicted to be an Arctic blast that may stun livestock and scare small children if it happens to snow ahead of the official start of winter. So it’s back to Betty C’s […]

Intro Last week, I wrote an article debunking the EPA’s blatantly misleading “108 MPG equivalent highway” claim for a particular electric vehicle, the 2020 Chevy Bolt.
