The nautilus is an ancient symbol of the spiral of our lives. As the Nautilus grows, it creates new, wider and larger chambers that are perfectly proportionate. A lifeline connects one chamber to the next, so previous rooms are left behind but not forgotten. This represents that although we take who were with us through life, we can never go back. ALWAYS PROGRESSING!

A Dress Code for Brits in America

This is from the blog, MIND THE GAP, from BBC America. It’s a great blog and great reading for any American interested in the UK, or who will be working or traveling or living there, or for anyone in the UK who will be coming to the USA for the same.

Oklahoma Will Charge Customers Who Install Their Own Solar Panels

bspolitics:

As one of the commentators over on Think Progress said, this is like charging people for growing their own food instead of buying it at the grocery store.

The statement from Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. about “keeping it fair” seems particularly absurd. How is it “fair” to charge someone for not using your product - because when it comes down to it, that is precisely what is happening.

WABOS! Keeping it FAIR? What is fair about charging for something that is FREE? Stupid state! I hope a bunch of people get lawyers for a class-action suit against this bunch of greedy bastards! and I’m glad I don’t live in OKLAHOMA! (where I live is bad enough - they’d probably do that here if we had enough sun).
