I'm wondering if the tune was the inspiration for Valley girl by Frank and Moon unit. Although Frank was all original and a genius.

What is the most controversial, mixed up, over analyzed, under analyzed, rarely understood, seemingly simple but with lots of baggage, and will never have a ending to it's meaning in the hydronic world?
I think I just earned a $100.00
Now I'll take delta P for $100.00

Palin ville??

Easy now - Last I heard she now is residing in Arizona, which is a good place for her!
As for ourselves it's Indian. You know it's between Girdwood and the big city.

Hi Rick

That's a tough question. BTW I ran into an Enstar guy I know and he told me about gas down there. There is a meeting for anyone at Badarki Inn at the end of June. His discription of it was "How not to blow yourselves up" :)

Air in line affect heat output?

@ April 15, 2013 5:14 PM in Will air in line effect heat output of BB

Of course I'm in agreement with every written up top.
Back to orriginal queston. After a good power purge it now has a fresh jolt of oxygen. And from this gas comes microbubbles wanting to wreak havoc on the iron stuff.
It's my understanding that these microbubbles do in fact provide insulation causing the emmiters to not release as many BTU's. Of course this would need validation in a Lab.
Will air in line affect heat output of BB? Yes,final

Or is it like Lactose free?

@ April 9, 2013 5:15 PM in Single faucet issues

Did you ever notice that skim lactose free milk tastes just like regular whole milk?
See that? Not only do you aid in keeping yourselves and others from freezing to death, but also get nutritional and/or gourmet tips! What a site!
Now about your plumbing- Is the dip tube rotting? Of course if you have a tanklees my point is moot. 

Another interesting development

@ April 5, 2013 12:42 AM in Colorado Monoxide Case Moves Toward Trial

During this whole thing I've never read about who owns the house. I'm sure their homeowners policy was hit for the policy limit. Whoever the owners are they must feel horrible.
Taking on a case like this is a complex and expensive matter. Both sides must feel rather confident in themselves.
My bet- They will settle

First, remain calm

@ March 23, 2013 5:14 AM in LOUD Lennox Pulse

I remember this one.
Now, let's see. Ignorant neighbor problem,very loud and louder, it's simple and inexpensive, yourself are 100% competent, (no worries here) (?), end of rope (easy on that one) and the ever popular heath problems.
As you mentioned, I think it's time to bring in a lawyer to really screw things up:)
As far as youself working on your neighbors stuff. There has to be a better way.
Hope this helps!

mystery solved

@ March 22, 2013 1:39 AM in I've always found better musicians here!

Frank, from your first picture up top I was wondering about who plays lead in a 7 member band that has 2 tubas:) I guess about 78 sit ins helps out:) 
I always like John Barbas music stuff. One was that Little Feat was not in the R&R hall of fame but ABBA was. Finally something he didn't have to explain to me;)

What I was thinking

@ March 13, 2013 1:37 PM in 275 gal oil tank basic basement install advice

Was Wall street crime syndicate, speculators, hedge funds,catastrophic failures and weeping. Then along comes that wonderful,"Just because you are paranoid does not mean they are not out to getcha"  :)

Great for all of you!

Talk about the ultimate couch potato

Is there not a heat  exchanger cracking issue ?


@ February 27, 2013 1:29 AM in Are you ever done with your heating system?

And in my spare time I'll write my own manifesto:)

I won't give away the plot,

@ February 22, 2013 12:58 AM in Coal- the cleanest fuel source for steam heat? See link

but it reminds me of a movie,The Formula. It has Brando and George C. Scott in it. I think Brandos character was based on Armand Hammer. Check it out
Of course it had to be Fox news to inform the world of this wonderful breakthrough.

@ February 16, 2013 3:12 AM in What business lessons did you learn from the Great Recession?

I remember sitting on a rest stop lawn with my dad, just north of Redding, This was in 1988. He was a major banker in CA. He said "The Feds brought this all upon themselves".

wondering if they did not undersize my boiler

@ February 15, 2013 4:58 AM in wondering if they did not undersize my boiler

There is a double negative there somewhere.
Also, we used our ratty rotisserie two nights ago. The chicken was great.

What did I learn?

@ February 14, 2013 9:12 PM in What business lessons did you learn from the Great Recession?

Except that history repeats itself. The lack of regulation in the financial sector was the culprit.
I'll just leave it there.
Oh I forgot,don't forget it's Valentines Day. Oh for crying out loud it's 9:21 on the east coast !


@ February 14, 2013 6:02 PM in WRONGLY PIPED

It's installation and operating manual. Also, from the pics your boiler is apparently hanging from the ceiling and not sitting on the floor:) So read that I&O thing!

Fine and dandy

@ February 13, 2013 6:55 AM in garden hose for gas line
