    To live & work on a tropical island, where you could spend your days off enjoying the beaches and fishing in your boat. I sometimes envy the guys that are able to do this every weekend, instead of hiding inside staring at this damned computer.

    Here I sit playing on my computer, waiting for the phone to ring, bringing me another no-heat call or some frozen water lines, with temps that are'nt supposed to rise above 5 degrees while people like that Carnak guy are out playing in the sand.

    Actually; now that I look at the people logged in I see that the island folk are actually hiding inside staring at their computers. I think at least one of them needs to trade places for a few weeks to see exactly how good he has it down there.

    Of course the swap would have to take place in between disasters.

    I have made it a resolution to never brag about the weather, BUT I do recall being told on more than one occasion that certain people could not do without the four seasons.

    I have had enough snow and 40 below to last me a life time.

    The beach gets boring, and I only usually go when I have vistors here.

    Did I mention some friends flew in yesterday? Guess where we went this afternoon

    Get a gaddam house so your visitors don't have to room on the beach. And watch out for those damn sand fleas. And oh yeah,---I hate you!

    it's 1°F here in Schaumburg, IL. Worked 9 hours yesterday and might do some more today. I'm not on call but it sure gets boring sitting in the house.

    I have a pup tent, a 5000 btu window shaker and a generator. The noise scares the sand fleas away.

    Four seasons are a requirement, but during the current season, its nice to thaw out once in a while. Just as you could'nt handle living in the cold anymore, I could'nt handle living 365 days with the constant heat. Besides; where would I ride my snowmachine?
