New Marc Gunther blog: An easy “green” solution to high gas prices ^ac
I am lucky, I live in Cambridge, UK. I do most of my research and paperwork from home. I keep the majority of my long distance travelling down to trains, that leaves just the local stuff. Around town, the villages by bike. Cambridge is blessed with lots of libraries, other resource like Universities, people to meet and exchange ides. Then there’s the internet, takes up the rest. I find, I need a balance though, staying at home, shut off can lead to cabin fever. I need to get out. This is where the bike comes into it own. The running cost of my home are kept down. I use Led lighting for the main rooms, I cook and heat the place by gas, but even the use of that is kept low. I were wormer clothing when its cold. This flat is nothing like the old farm house I grow up in. That was cold. No heating or cooking until the range was lit.
