... I know it's dry ... not much rainfall so far this year ... but it seems to me like someone is intentionally going around from county to county starting these wildfires ... I mean ... every year when it's dry as it's been so far ... there have always been a few ... but there has been more this year so far in a small amount of time! Seems very suspicious is all I'm saying ... and Jeff ... if this rant gets published ... you will undoubtedly see it and read it ... so in my defense to your idiotic question ... the answer definitely a "No, I do not live in my car.... and your question amuses me... and further more ... if I did live in my car ... what business is it of yours? You are proving more & more... that narrow minded, short mental range you have to everyone. So ... if you don't want to do me any favors... do yourself one youngman and do not read any comments I make in this rant section! Have a pleasant day, and I honestly wish you well in life and do yourself a favor as I suggested and stop proving to others that you have a one track mind which is to aggravate & an agitate!
