We should come up with some sort of pool. We could all choose a month and year, and who ever ends up being right gets some sort of prize or title? I'm thinking it will be within 3 years.Continue

For sure we are getting energy from fracking - lots. Is it bad? This piece put together by a law firm says fracking is bad for property values. Is it true?…Continue
