Anyone know how to fix a boiler?
I need some repair for a repair that was done yesterday. Our radiators weren’t working properly so I called out our heating/cooling guys. We have one of those yearly service contracts and have had one with the same company for years. They’re always great about getting out to help quickly and have helped us in an emergency more than once. So anyway, the guy came over yesterday and explained I had a thermostat no tied into the boiler. He fixed it but in the process seems to have unleashed the full fury of the radiators in this old house. Our bedroom was like Turkish Bath last night. I actually opened a window. It was 31 degrees when I got up!
The window didn’t help at all. So good as advertised, the company is sending someone out right away this morning to take care of it.
So here I am waiting at the house we’ll talk about the news while we wait.
Sometimes there’s no explanation for a crime and all I’m left with is…there is evil in the world. A boy shoots and kills two defenseless women and has no reason for doing it…I’m left with, Evil.
Maybe we’ll get another explanation but I can’t think of one that would explain this.
So we’re having a running debate about “friending” people on Fac ebook. this is National De-Friending Day, as declared by Jimmy Kimmel. I don’t know why he gets to say we all need to de-friend some of our Facebook friends but what the heck.
Two sides to this one for me. My wife agrees I should cull the herd a little on Facebook. Be the Cyber-Sheepdog as my friend Ben put it. They both believe I have too many friends on Facebook. I have usually accepted most people’s requests even when i didn’t know them. i assume they’re viewers. That said I think i should put my friends in groups. This way if there’s some personal information i might want to share…pictures of the kids…stuff like that…it will only be for people I know.
The part I don’t agree about is de-friending someone cause they post all the time. If you don’t like someone’s posts…hide them. Then they’ll never know you are ignoring their post about the tenth place they’ve visited today, or the link to some onion article they found funny, or the Farmville update they’ve posted.
I forgot to gloat a little about the Northwestern win Saturday. I won’t…
I will however suggest to more than a few Hawk fans that they start treating trips to Evanston like a trip to Madison.
I know the history. Northwesteern has always been the Big Ten doormat but how long ago was that? I looked it up. Over the last fifteen years, Northwestern is 9-5 against the Hawkeyes. I think I remember some Hawkeyes fans calling on a record like that against Iowa St as proof they’d dominated the series over the long run. Here’s the trump card…When’s the last time Iowa went to the Rose Bowl?
Iowa fans will say Northwestern treats this as it’s biggest game of the season…I would disagree…
Here’s a post from Fanhouse.com:
Iowa fans want the right to be dismissive of Northwestern’s
attempted rivalry. They want to call the occasional loss to the Wildcats a result of the opposing team spending its entire season prepping for one game. That only works if the losses are actually occasional
Of course this is not a rivalry…I’m not saying Northwestern is some force to be reckoned with in the Big Ten either…far from it.
Maybe they’ve taken the spot Illinois used to occupy on Iowa’s schedule. That was a pretty good game year in year out…As long as Pat Fitzgerald is around, I think this will be too.
The service guy is on the way. I’ll leave it at that…
One more thing…I hear we’re going to start to give some stuff away on this blog. I expect I’ll get the details here shortly…but make sure you come back and visit the Morning Buzz. I look forward to your comments!
