Historic buildings in every state
Settle down with this Web site and a cup of coffee, and you might never get to the Sunday paper.

I went to www.biodiesel.org to find a biodiesel provider for home-heating oil (I found one). The fuel is a blend of 20% biofuel and 80% homeheating oil, but my wife and I feel a lot more than 20% better about burning it in our boiler.
The Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (www.flash.org), a.k.a. FLASH, wants to “promote life safety, property protection, and economic well-being by strengthening homes and safeguarding families from natural and manmade disasters.” Sounds reasonable.
