    Alrighty, then.

    Since nobody's going, I'll go by myself then.
    Don't expect me to bring you back any "free gifts".

    Well I had to go to the "Efficiency Vermont" Conference last week all by myself. I didn't bring these guys back anything either. Not even a tote bag made out of recycled soda bottles.

    Is there more mold or is there more lawyers?

    There has always been mold.
    Lawyers are a relatively new invention.

    I think you knew that.

    Actually the presenter that made this statement, at the above mentioned conference, contends that the answer is 'both'. And he made a good case about there being more mold.

    Okay, I'm back now.

    All I got was a few hats, a couple of USB pen drives, about 25 various textbooks, a big sack of White-Rodgers Series 80 t-stats, pens, papers, and other junk I can't remember.

    I did get to meet a few reps. One offered to give a presentation at my school. White-Rodgers has a bus rigged up as a mobile salesfloor/demo area.

    I missed most of the first meeting, so I didn't get any Danfoss goodies. It didn't seem right.
    Nothing new, that I could tell, except in Europe.
    Carbon Dioxide as a refrigerant... stuff like that.

    You are right, Benn, there are more mold AND lawyers.
    I saw examples of each.
    They seem to be mutually attractive.
