    I'm not thrilled with the DTP, either, though it has some really nice features if you are reaching back in time. I haven't seen anything I like better, though. Dates are difficult.

    That's something natural gas comes out of, not goes into.

    I live in an all electric house, so I don't directly see the price of natural gas. I'm sure I see it indirectly, but not directly.
