A couple of simple answers to the energy crisis that I have learned to apply in my life:
TWO pairs of socks
THREE jerseys and sweaters.
(when really cold, long johns or tights help).
Voila - I am warm especially in the PNW West of the Cascades where it is not bitterly cold for long.
But still, the EASY as 1-2-3 formula above helps anywhere it is cold.
A goosedown quilt or sleeping bag helps - ever been to Innsbruck, Austria?
They stack them a foot high on the bed and breakfast beds - it feels like one is sleeping with angels!
in summer heat:
WHO NEEDS AIR CONDITIONING?
throw a few drops of cold water on your skin throughout the 100 degree days -
grow a maple tree on the West side of your house -
keep curtains closed in the day and open windows and doors at night
drink cold beverages - not alcohol that raises body temperature.
Oh well, one beer can't hurt!
