PGE

I dunno if it's just because I live alone now, or because they remodeled this apartment before I moved in, or because I get out of the apartment so much more now that I'm on my own, or PGE is just superior to Pacific Power, or what, but my power bill with PGE has yet to go over $40 in the seven months I've been living here, and it's usually about $35. Last place, with Pacific Power, the monthly bill almost always exceeded $100, always needed the roommate's help to pay it (and getting money from her was always like trying to perform dental surgery on a mountain lion without anesthesia). So whatever the reason, I'm saving between $60 and $65 a month on the power bill.

Koko

Sad to find out Koko the gorilla died back in June of 2018. I remember reading about her and All Ball when I was little. I remember being so sad for her to read that All Ball died. :( Koko was so important to the effort to keep her species alive, and opened so many peoples' eyes to the fact animals are far smarter than we were giving them credit for. And she's at least part of the reason I got so facilitated with sign language.

Michael is dead, too. :( His story of watching his mother slaughtered for meat was so sad and harrowing.
