Aug 31st 2011 12:56AMI was in a home in Arizona years ago that was partially build underground. Most of the roof was just a foot or so underground. It was made of sealed cement and was on a slope that water always moved away from it in the rainy season.
With airconditioning on it was naturally about 75 degrees in the 110 plus degree summers and about 65 degrees in the 45 degree winters.
Similarly I stayed in an old plantation style home converted into apartments with 12 foot seelings made out of cyprus with huge old ceiling fans. Despite 95 degree weather and 100 percent humidity the place always felt cool (a 750 sq foot 1 bedroom apt) with one wall unit A/C turned [a cheap little one from Sears on and the fans going). No central air and the electric bill was tiny. Homes should be built differently.

That said I think that people who convert for marriage are shallow. It's a slap in the face to her grandparents. It's as if she is saying she stands for nothing. So all the rituals she went through regarding a belief in Jesus were nothing? Its not a surprise..the Trumps are all smoke and mirrors.
