Cold out; warm within

Recent exposure to an all-time high temperature of 79° Fahrenheit during December in Danville, VA in 2022, made flowers bloom in the middle of winter, and inspired some of us to try to do just a little bit more to conserve energy.  At the same time, we read that Aaron Lansky, author of Outwitting History, the Amazing Adventures of a Man Who Rescued A Million Yiddish Books, kept costs down at his non-profit by setting the thermostat at his office (a book warehouse where he and his staff worked during the day) at 60 ° F in winter.  Wondering if one could stand to drop the thermostat to such a low degree minus the inspiring literary surroundings, I searched for and found another trick for keeping warm indoors.  It has been so effective that it should be shared immediately.  The trick is wearing a satin cap (available at grocery and drug stores) designed to preserve your hairstyle overnight.  Although the cap does not seem adapted to my fine hair type, it is extremely comfortable, and it DOES keep the body warm.  So warm, in fact, that the thermostat can be dropped by several degrees, with the wearer remaining toasty warm, and even getting too hot!  The satin cap is warm partly because it traps body heat in a bubble all around the head.  If the aesthetics don’t appeal to you, try it at night.  And if you succeed in saving the planet and a little cash, please do send a pic!  :^)
