Do I recall it You lived in Ca?
I guess we can compare the new place with Prescott in climate etc snooping
on Internet?
Lethal animals as we dont have much of here, kills mostly elderly and
children, I like to get kids and I will get older. Any idea there or should
we check ourselves?

And watch it while we or others spend our money on building a new home;-)

More like Tucson?
Thats hot around 100 and more.
I'll check Prescott, have avoided Flagstaff and Sedona due to harsh winters
in my charts.

Found it now with Microsoft Encarta, must be near Ocotillo.
Also see a lot of I.R's around Az, not there but on the border of Foutain
Hills and around Phx. Is an IR hands off for other than Indians?

My Life-extension does not include fireplaces since the smoke causes cancer,
so its becoming more or less forbidden here to damage with smoke.
Not aware of that yet in US?
Solarpanels electricity and heatpumps is the best now, we must think of the
future in this life, otherwise who can be serious on Cryonics...
Better avoid fossilfuels if we think of the future in the long run as we

Like AC?

I meant insulated.. Costs a bit more but pays well in comfort and saves

Normal new houses are safe at least here, building-stones safer,
timberloghouses I guess not.

I avoid driving of several reasons, live as I learn, seldom use my 4 cars.
But when a place like that grows, a small store will come up I guess.

Good, that seems to be perfect for a healthy walk, if its not to much
elevation up when one gets older;-)

Perhaps its better to check that up first, so its healthy and free of radon
