The scene is Christmas Day 2010. I used this picture for my Christmas card this past year and got so many complements on it. That's Lucy, my 13-year-old puppy looking on. I think she was looking for Santa.

Energy Efficiency Tip
Air is drawn into your home from low areas, so inspect your foundation for potential air-infiltration points. Fixing these leaks makes a bigger impact on your electric bill than sealing doors and windows! Caulk all cracks and gaps around your home, including spaces around wires for telephone, electrical, cable, and gas lines, water spigots, and dryer vents.
