Michael Esh has the same issue. Something tells me the problem is on the

Also, I was hoping that your "aardvark" word document was another story
from your career, miss those and I'm too frugal to buy the book.

Reminds me, this summer we traveled to Italy again, and one of the museums
we visited was in Castelforte, and covered the impact of WW2 in that area.
Very fierce fighting there between Germans and Allies (U.S. Army, Brits of
course, and French forces) along the Gustav line.  Reportedly more civilian
deaths caused by land mines than all casualties on both sides caused by the
hostilities.  A lady we know there in Italy was only about  3 months old
when her mother was killed by a mine, her father was already dead, and
there were no living relatives to care for her so she was raised an
orphan.  She visited the museum with us, and really enjoyed it.

The museum is run by a non-profit, all volunteers from the local community,
and they still are finding artifacts from the war.  While we were there,
they showed me a U.S. helmet that was remarkably well preserved, found that
day in a nearby river, where some GI had probably dropped it nearly 80
years ago.

The French forces were mostly recruited from their colonies in Africa, IIRC
they were Moroccan, and they had a terrible reputation for very fierce and
brutal fighting vs. the Germans and unfortunately also abusing the
civilians when they weren't fighting.  Abusing is putting a very kind face
on it.  They wore stripped tunics and white turbans, and the French
officers paid them a dollar per ear taken from a German.  More than a few
pictures of these soldiers on display, and they did indeed look pretty
rough and fierce.

There were pieces from a Spitfire that had crashed, which they traced back
to the pilot who had been flying at the time, pilot had bailed out safely
and continued fighting the rest of the war and just died about ten or
fifteen years ago.

They also had found the remains of a German solder, which they returned to

Also, I was hoping that your "aardvark" word document was another story
from your career, miss those and I'm too frugal to buy the book.

Reminds me, this summer we traveled to Italy again, and one of the museums
we visited was in Castelforte, and covered the impact of WW2 in that area.
Very fierce fighting there between Germans and Allies (U.S. Army, Brits of
course, and French forces) along the Gustav line.  Reportedly more civilian
deaths caused by land mines than all casualties on both sides caused by the
hostilities.  A lady we know there in Italy was only about  3 months old
when her mother was killed by a mine, her father was already dead, and
there were no living relatives to care for her so she was raised an
orphan.  She visited the museum with us, and really enjoyed it.

The museum is run by a non-profit, all volunteers from the local community,
and they still are finding artifacts from the war.  While we were there,
they showed me a U.S. helmet that was remarkably well preserved, found that
day in a nearby river, where some GI had probably dropped it nearly 80
years ago.

The French forces were mostly recruited from their colonies in Africa, IIRC
they were Moroccan, and they had a terrible reputation for very fierce and
brutal fighting vs. the Germans and unfortunately also abusing the
civilians when they weren't fighting.  Abusing is putting a very kind face
on it.  They wore stripped tunics and white turbans, and the French
officers paid them a dollar per ear taken from a German.  More than a few
pictures of these soldiers on display, and they did indeed look pretty
rough and fierce.

There were pieces from a Spitfire that had crashed, which they traced back
to the pilot who had been flying at the time, pilot had bailed out safely
and continued fighting the rest of the war and just died about ten or
fifteen years ago.

They also had found the remains of a German solder, which they returned to
Germany.  The guy was just 17 when he died.  They had pictures from the
German officials who came to retrieve the remains, and pictures from his
burial ceremony in Germany, and some letters and such around that episode.

Wilton,

Did you move to an all-new computer, or just upgrade the OS and/or the
email client?

I've still got Win7 on our home laptop, SWMBO is used to that and whichever
version of Outlook is on it (I think 13?), so I'm going to hold on to that
as long as possible to avoid hobbling her with learning a new tool.  I also
don't have much time to devote to that sort of thing.

Take a gander at the mapz of Goog.  The town is a literal residential dead end. 
 Maybe that is the new thing, but I come from a world were streets line up in 
some manner and you are able to get to other places from here.  ANC has few 
residential roads that are not dead ends.  Subsections and lost tails into the 
wilderness.  

One neighborhood is built up in an old gravel mine, which is maybe 10 meters 
below grade.  A rather deep bowl that will fill with Home Depot houses and will 
flood in a 100 year downpour

My former next door neighbor is a “forensic HVAC investigator”. In other words, 
he works for insurance companies, identifying the part HVAC systems play in 
losses their insureds encounter. I had been talking to him about putting a 
solar powered attic fan in the house to get the attic temperatures down. He 
told me that before I did anything like that I should seal the “envelope” as 
tightly as I possibly could.

Seems that people will go and put an attic fan in, thinking it will reduce the 
heat load on the living space by making the attic cooler. In reality, what 
often happens (according to him) is that the attic fan creates a negative 
pressure in the attic, which sucks conditioned air out of the living space 
through all the little racks and gaps that exist in every house. As a result, 
costs to condition the living space often go up after doing this, not down.

So he cautioned me to seal up the house as best I could and then put an attic 
fan in, as long as the attic is properly ventilated (which is already was.)

No insulation, just a little bit of decking for storage.

Until recently it wasn’t an option as we stored stuff up there. I’ve moved 
nearly everything out and into a storage unit off site, so I could probably do 
it now.

When we lived in Austin, Texas, I helped our landlord put insulation in
the garage's ceiling. Like your brother, Peter, we found it was quite
helpful.

Would some rigid board insulation be suitable? I'm thinking the blue Dow
styrofoam boards would be too fragile, but I have in the past seen some
which was tougher than that and even more flexible. I do not, however,
recall what it was called.

It does sound like it's time for some insulation!

Our Big Room is insulated, but it heats up quite noticably during the day
while the Long Room, where we live, stays cool. I'm thinking the
translucent "skylights" are a significant contributor to that.

At night, it's the reverse, so I open the door between the rooms to let
the cooler air from the Big Room flow into the Long Room.

My brother put some in his a couple years ago, and it drops the summer temp

Insulating the door is a great idea, it's not very expensive and does quite a

Re: [MBZ] Test Message

2019-07-20 Thread Dan Penoff via Mercedes
I just snagged the biggest window unit (12,000 BTU?) I could off of Craigslist 
and popped it in the window. I had to run a circuit over to that side of the 
garage from my distribution panel which is on the opposite wall of the garage 
and add a breaker to the panel.

I have an slightly oversize two car garage. In 90 degree heat like today, I had 
the boy roll his car in about 9:00 am and turn on the AC. By 10:00 it was 
pretty comfortable. It’s not so much the temp, but taking the humidity out 
really makes it so, so much better. Otherwise we would be sweating our brains 
out and soaking wet.

My electric bill is getting hammered by it, but I don’t care. I noticed that my 
bill was up to $190 for last month, but considering the time of year and the 
amount of time I ran the thing I’m not at all unhappy. Without the garage AC I 
think the bill would have been more in the $160-$170 range, so $20-$30 is a 
small price to pay for making it possible to work in the garage this time of 
year without being totally miserable.

If I insulated my garage door it would probably be even better, as a LOT of 
heat passes through it. I can stand by it late in the afternoon with the garage 
AC on and feel the higher temperatures within a foot or two of it.

Agreed.

When everyone around here is complaining about how hot and humid it is, I’m 
wondering how it’s any worse that when I was a kid growing up in the Midwest.

Central Indiana in the mid to late summer was just this bad, so humid it was 
like getting poured into a bucket. And when we were working in August in the 
field, like baling hay, we were wearing jeans and long sleeved shirts! I can 
even begin to describe what it was like working in greenhouses during that time 
of year, especially when we were closed up tight and sterilizing the beds with 
live steam...

I will say that it did cool down somewhat at night, but the days were just as 
blistering hot and humid as they are now.

Mine is 33hp has bucket or forks on the front 
for light lifting.If I need to lift more all 
I have to do is use the old 125C track loader 
it is still able to do a bit of work.  I have 
an  8' flail mower for the tractor and that's 
just about right for the mowing part and a 6' 
bushhog is good for the heavier stuff when I 
want to knock the woods back a bit.

I just got back from my bike ride to the beach. Dolphins!

Mercedes content:  I ordered a belt yesterday for the $500E300 which amazon 
told me at 9AM the USPS could not deliver because they could not get to my 
front door. I forgot to look in the mailbox which is 1000ft from my front door, 
which is also easily accessible should anyone come down the driveway and get 
out of their car.
