So glad you are close together. When I moved far away from home at 18 I never realized it would be forever or the impact it would have on us all. Good things and bad things come from all choices we make in life. Enjoy Mum, and give her a hug from me when she gets home (just for raising such a nice daughter).

Yay taxy! Did you see the same weather map I did tonight? There is this ginormous heat boomerang and runs from over by LP and Somebunny, swings thru the southern U.S., then runs up the east coast and clear into Canada way north of you! Looks like your AC is arriving just at the right time. Enjoy!

We sprinkle freshly grated Parmasean cheese over the oil. Most of the Italian restaurants in our city serve it as an appetizer to pick on until your meal comes. No charge. A big bowl of flavored croutons and a long dish every one can reach, filled with the flavored oil. The cheese is on the table along with the S&P. Now you have me wanting some. Well, I know what I am having for lunch.

Around here, it's EVOO with a bit of balsamic vinegar on top and swirled into floating droplets.

I'm smiling. The new AC is installed and after less than 20 minutes we could feel the difference. I expect it to take many hours to get the whole house nice and cool.

The new compressor:



and the inside fan unit:
