A Quick Water Update

Just to let everyone know, I did shower with HOT water this morning. I got it so hot in their I had to put on my makeup in the dining room or risk passing out. Ooops.

The line was accidentally cut and we were concerned that another line would have to be run the entire length of the house. The circuit breaker is at one end of the house and the hot water heater is at the other. But DSD said a junction box was installed instead. It took them less than 2 hours and only cost $180.00. The vinyl siding guy is going to charge us $180 less so it didn't cost us anything.

I think we should split the difference though. It was an accident and he has gone out of his way on more than one occasion to help us out. I haven't mentioned this to DSD yet, but I hope he will be onboard with it.

I love HOT water!

We have been very lucky with the people we have hired to work on our house. We had our roof replaced in 2003 and it still leaked in the next big storm. The roofer had someone out within 2 hours and had it fixed. I would recommend him to anyone!

did you post him on Emily's List?
I recommend it if you haven't.
so many people only post the negative ones. then, how do we find the rare good ones?

I've never heard of Emily's list, but when I googled it, I found a political action committee dedicated to getting Pro-Choice women elected. I'm all for that, but I don't think that is the same list you are talking about.

I am the kind of hombre who enjoys to taste unused stuff. Presently I'm fabricating my private solar panels. I am making it all by myself without the help of my men. I'm using the net as the only path to acheive that. I discovered a really brilliant website which explains how to build pv panels and wind generators. The place explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure bout how correct the information given there iz. If some guys over here who had experience with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the page it will be grand and I'd really appreciate it, cause I extremely take an interest in solar panel construction.

Tnx for reading this. U people are the best.
