Energy and the Illinois State Fair – Dancing inbetween the rain drops



and I went to  the Illinois State Fair


To see the Butter Cow.


This year’s fair was really weird weather wise. It rained when Cathy and I normally go on Monday and Tuesday – Senior’s Day and Agriculture Day respectively. So by the time we made it on Friday most everything was gone. Embarrassingly we did not make it to Conservation World where all the cool kids and our friends hang out. We did make it to the Expo Building where home efficiency seemed to be the order of the day:


We met this nice man from Energy Doctor. A business that offers to tighten your envelop and use other measures as a package to reduce your energy consumption. They started in Iowa but have 5 offices now. Please visit them at:

Then we saw the purdy little girl at the Anderson Windows booth:


And we saw the people from Peoria Siding:


And  the Four Seasons solar space:


OH I mean this Four Seasons:

Having exhausted ourselves we went across the street to Mehan’s food stand and got a corn dog and a lemon shake up. They are celebrating 75 years at the Illinois State Fair…Congratulations
