    Prices for gasoline dropped a bit this week, currently at $2.55/Gallon. (Texas prices) And my usual Summer electricity bill (running the AirCon 24/7 set to 78F) averages around $150.00/month. That's with a new low energy unit we recently had installed.

    I am currently visiting UK, can confirm that petrol is about 1.33/liter, which works out to be $6.55/gallon at current exchange rates. And ale is room temperature, which is lovely. I don't drink lager. As for AirCon, my rental car has it, the rental property in London did not, nor did the rental property we had in Dorset. Hotels usually do have AirCon. But the temps are such that it is not needed. Today, for example, the high temp is predicted for 11C, or about 50F.

    Hope you're enjoying your visit, Jake. I know you've been here several times before.

    You wait till summer really kicks in. In the South East (Greater London area) temps can easily hit the high seventies or early eighties Fahrenheit and it can be very humid. Indeed, for much of the UK, a modest summer day with humidity can be extremely uncomfortable.

    I lived in Manchester for 29 years and the summers - usually rainy, moderately hot but very humid, made sleeping at night very uncomfortable.

    I'm also impressed that you are getting your petrol at reasonable rates (for us). Here it is the equivalent of just over $7/gallon equivalent.

    This is an interesting thread ... relating to a problem experienced by thousands of happy Apple users: look at all the people who changed their eMail address and then found out they can't access their iCloud anymore. By that I mean, they have changed their Apple id on their phone and other Mac devices. All devices that were able to accept the "new" Apple id, will show up in the "Settings" file on the iPhone, when they click their name. Those devices can be located with the "Find My Phone" app .. and can also be locked and erased if necessary.

    Now, If you have an older Mac which was using an older Apple id ... you will not be able to change the id without clicking on "iCloud" in System Preferences, and clicking on "Sign Out" ... which will disconnect the Mac from the iCloud, and delete all info stored on the cloud, AND also delete all info on your Mac that was stored on the iCloud.

    When you re-launch your Mac, and click on "iCloud" in System preferences, you will be able to enter the new Apple id & Password in the iCloud log-in window, and your mac will join your other devices in the cloud and show up on your phone in "settings" when you click on your name.

    But then, it may be missing a few things... perhaps your other iCloud devices can put them back?
