About Me

I've been a female working a "man's job" (mechanical engineer), stay at home Mom (6 kids), working Mom (6 kids to put through college), unemployed, underemployed, temporarily employed and now working from home! We live on an old, small farm with 2 dogs and 2 cats in the house, variable number of chickens out in the yard.

If Romney had released all his taxes 10 months ago, would anyone

have bothered going through them?

If your congress critter is a Republican, tell us what makes that person very special:

Mine is "Light bulb Lady" Anne Buerkle:

The new congresswoman says it should be up to consumers to decide if they want to buy the standard incandescent bulb invented by Thomas Edison 130 years ago, or the new generation of energy-saving compact fluorescent bulbs.

As Buerkle views it, Congress took away that choice in 2007 when it passed the Energy Independence and Security Act legislation signed into law during the George W. Bush administration. The law included energy efficiency standards for light bulbs, to be phased in beginning Jan. 1, 2012. Incandescent bulbs currently fail to meet the standards.

Buerkle, R-Onondaga Hill, says the law amounts to a ban on incandescent bulbs. She and 20 other conservative Republicans in Congress are seeking to repeal the new standards.
