    School? What? Rules?

    You have to remember two things.

    You're in Arizona now, Toto.
    (1) Get a gun. you can walk in the streets with it legally in plain sight. Just don't conceal it without a permit. And...




    (2) There are no rules. and...
    (3) Nobody enforces them.

    And if you tell me I can't count, remember, I have a gun. This is Arizona.

    I like your other pictures of Arizona, it's a shame that people do such shoddy work there and get away with it.

    Homeowner with bulgy eyes and sweat beading on his brow as he looks at contractor gun, " are you sure that everything is completed and installed legally, what about that faint gas smell that I am getting coming from the attic?"

    Contractor with his hands moving to rest on the handle of his gun "I say it's legally installed, I say that it's completed and working and I say I want my money for the job now, do you have a problem with that or do I have to bring out my PERSUADER."

    Look, when I was a tech, I found a significant number of techs in the companies I worked at who were suprised that I wasn't carrying. This is the Old West. There's just no other way to explain it. AZ doesn't observe daylight savings time. There's no long-explanation logical reason. They just didn't like it and didn't want to do what everyone else was doing. Whether it made sense or not. You just don't tell an AZ man what to do OK. He's got a gun. And he don't take kindly to that sort of attitude.

    The latest think I notice is that when the blower comes on at first the first 30 seconds of air out of the vents is HOTTTT and smells HOTTT. I don't know if this is a normal occurrence in PHX. I know the attics get hot but hell it is only spring so that would equate to about the hottest weather I see back home and I never experiences such a blast of hot air. When I come back this winter I plan on investigating this some more. I expect to find some good infiltration somewhere. Sonoran airs quality work!!
    I will believe that the government is broke when the welfare checks start bouncing!!
