    Willis Haviland Carrier, the man known as "The Father of the Air Conditioning Industry," was born on November 26 on a farm near Angola, a small town in western New York. His father, Duane Carrier, ran the family farm.

    Young Willis, however, began showing inventive and mechanical skills at the early age of 11 and it thought that some of those skills, perhaps, were inherited from his mother, Elizabeth Haviland Carrier. It was Elizabeth who fixed family clocks, sewing machines and other mechanical items. Perhaps most importantly, Elizabeth taught Willis fractions and other mathematics and obviously captured the interest and imagination that would lead eventually to Willis becoming an engineer. Even though Willis lost his mother at an early age, years later he would say that she opened "a new world to me and gave me a pattern for solving problems that I have followed ever since."

    As a young boy, Willis was recognized as inventive and studious. After chores on the farm, he often burned the midnight oil on self-invented problems. One friend remembers Willis working on geometry problems outside, during a snowstorm, unmindful of the weather around him.

    Willis became obsessed with the idea of becoming an engineer. He won a state scholarship and attended Cornell University, graduating in 1901 with a degree in Mechanical

    Cool history did no that.

    Andy did well to did get far, 2 friends call wanting to play. said O and off he went.

    Looks like spring is springing in Western PA.

    Not that we had much winter.

    Been working on spring cleaning around here while our 90-something neighbor rode around on his law mower.

    Doug, the transducer and chip worked great. I'm back to full strength and then some. Thank you.

    Bret, it's awesome that you're teaching Andy about engines. I struggle with them, let alone being able to TEACH it.

    Bret,
    I will be replacing an outdoor heat pump unit this coming week, do you want me to save the old unit so you and Andy could play with it?
    I would even deliver to you if you want so Andy could actually practice on a real unit.
    The coil has a small leak.
    Let me know.
