    oh, crap. Honey, what's french for "bearing?"
    Well originally I knew something was up in the front end but its so silent that until you hit a bump or feel it through the wheel you couldn't really tell. The O/D off light started flashing towards the north end of NB and I had my co-pilot/girlfriend look it up in the owners manual and the prognosis was get this thing to the shop before it blows up. So then we spent half an hour on the phone getting jerked around by Fords customer service as all I wanted to know was where the closest shop was but a lot of them refused to help as the van is old and has no road side assistance. I finally got a hold of one lady and said "look I know its an old van with no road side, I know. Just tell me where the closest dealership is." So 80 kms after the light started flashing we get there and spend 3 hours and were on our way. We did have a few communication problems but I knew enough that when he asked for a number like the mileage just to grab a pen and write it down. Worked better for both of us lol. They did go out of their way for us though and stayed an hour later to get the van back on the road. And the price for dropping in off the highway for a bearing wasn't bad either. Makes up for Fords great phone support.

    But all and all its been a change for the better. I've been getting lots of work at my shop and just installed my first 12.5 ton Carrier Weathermaker rooftop yesterday. They're fun but Carrier could have given better instructors for the installation of the econmi$er. But as it stands now at the shop Im at the journeymen all want to take me to their jobs. Apparently a lot of their apprentices don't really work like I do. Some would just do the outside stuff and not help inside. In other words do two 2.5 inch holes for furnace venting and hook up the outdoor unit and go sit in the truck. And I think Im lined up for a training course at Totaline in the near future.

    Hope everyones doing okay. Brett, Im rooting for you.

    Hey gang.

    Don't heck in here as often, but I'm still here.

    Been running like a fool, but work is only so-so busy.

    Scouts, sports, and now the oldest is a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz school play.

    At least I get to watch it today instead of sell crap or keep 20-some 4th and 5th grade munchkins out of trouble when they arent on stage.

    I was visiting with my adult son in Orlando last week and we stopped in a Lego store. WOW! You need to get a second mortgage for some of those kits!

    It is terrible how many younger folk are having severe issues with cancer. My step daughter had a cancerous tumor removed at 24 years of age and one of my niece's had to have a double mascectomoy right after giving birth to her first child at 27 years old.

    What is really sad is that President Nixon declared war on Cancer and since then it has Quardrupled. Also an amazing fact that 42% of Congressmen own stock in the major pharmecutical companies (as stated in Dr. Micheal Cutlers book on Cancer Cures)
