This picture was taken near the end of the Civil War in 1865. It shows a four mule team pulling an army supply wagon. It is hard to imagine how many mules and horses the army must have had to move all the supplies around, and how many people it would take just to care for and feed those animals. The picture was taken in City Point, Virginia.
I was a little late posting the picture this morning because I was on the phone with the electric company. In Texas, you can choose between many different electricity providers, and shop for the best rate. This competition has led to much lower electric rates. I was able to lock in a price of 10.9 cents/kWhour for three years. I thought this was good price. I was curious as to who has the best rate on electricity among our visitors. Are you paying more or less than this?
