    I can show you my power bill I got today.

    e-Bill Information

    Biller Account Number: ******3230
    Due Date: 10/28/2008
    Amount Due: $167.44(CR)
    Account Balance: $167.44(CR)

    Beyond that I don't care to share investment or personal information.

    My blood boils a bit when people look for hand outs for personal investments paid for by people like me who pay more than my fair share of taxes.

    If you have done your home work you either have a worthwhile investment or you do not.

    Talking Re: Funding for historic building preservation

    Thanks Canuk! If kent just stops and thinks, money for these projects are set aside in funds for just this purpose. People and organizations get them everyday. Nike, Apple and other companies got their start up from government grants. So is he going to boycott the use of their products? If so, he had better do some research and find out all the companies that have started due to grants.
    I am trying to perserve history here and am not going to be reckless with government funds. If I restore this building, the city and its people have the most to benefit for years to come. The building has a monument in front of it from the city. It would be nice to see that appreciation be reflected in the building.

    Zengirl, you infantile attempt at character assassination and name calling add nothing to your credibility. You stated in the original post that you wanted to restore an historic commercial building as your private residence. In my opinion this is not historical restoration, it is a bastardized conversion of an historic building. It is my position that such conversions should only be done with private money. Just because someone else sucked money out of the system doesn't make it right. Your examples of "Nike, Apple and other companies got their start up from government grants" points out money invested to create jobs and wealth for many people not to just enhance the value of one persons personal property, so it is not relevant. If this building is so important to your neighbors and city why don't you seek their help, or do they also think it's wrong to invest their money in someone else's property.

    Do you have plans, and how are you generating the hydrogen?

    I wonder if that would qualify for a grant ?
