Wrong one.
Has she completed her transition? What is it like having two dad's now?

And if it is the third one well, fair enough.

Deck progress has halted. The contractor awaits a yet-to-be-defined "something" from the engineer in order to schedule the next inspection. I, however, have already taken a call out on the deck.

Yesterday evening I noticed the furnace not igniting so I had somebody out to look at it this morning. It appears that my 35-year-old furnace, which was already a bit too small for our house, is on its last legs. We had to have the pressure switch adjusted each winter over the past couple of years and then today the blower motor wasn't working properly and the gas valve is shot. He was able to get it fired up by literally pounding on the valve but I guess it's time to finally replace it all and do the AC unit (that was installed in 1981) at the same time. Oh well, they've had a good run! At least whatever we replace it with is bound to be much more efficient.

1981? Per a random internet source, the average efficiency of an AC in the 80s was 8-9 SEER. The minimum efficiency today is 13 SEER, so you're looking at 33-40% energy savings. On the furnace side you're probably looking at a 20%+ energy savings.

Those figures are close to what the HVAC guy quoted off the top of his head when I mentioned the likely improved efficiency.

This Gorilla Cart is my best purchase of the year so far. If you're a self-landscaper, it is well worth it.
I have Gorilla Carts for pulling stuff around the horse property that I can't or don't want to use the lawn tractor or 'real' tractor for--mainly horse feed, salt blocks, etc. They really are great.
