    Hunter, you make a good point regarding the split or conflict that we see in the younger generation. Those who have chosen military service, I to believe, represent hope. The others have me deeply worried. There are to many of them that like "the idea" of Sanders, Warren and the rest of the socialist. They do not find the idea of changing our Country to a socialist society horrible or even scary. The freedoms and beliefs that Socialism take away and will not tolerate, they do not see as a loss. To many of them it is trade off as the country changes. They say "our country has changed before" Life survived and now it is ready to change again. I think Jay's thoughts may come from our observations each day as we look at the behavior of the generations behind us. The greatest generation and the baby boomers are the end of the true patriots and willing warriors. I do not doubt that once we are gone, the country will be socialist. They do not draw a line in the sand and say, no further. They do not respond to "never again" Many of them see that as emotional 1960's movie stuff. "Why would any one want to die over the difference between a socialist and conservative" "It is just two points of view" As I hear them and have come to understand, not much of anything in society excites them. They have never experienced cause and effect. Bad decision, bad life. They are the perfect sheep for the socialist/communist. I can be hopeful and would be happy to be wrong. Fitz

    IMHO the kids now just have no idea, do not care, and have been influenced by all of the far left "stuff". My mother's brothers "uncles" were in WWII. One Uncle got torpedoed on 2 ships. Another Uncle went all the way through the Pacific. Another Uncle went from Normandy to Bastogne. My father was never in, but I did my time in the Post Vietnam era (20 yrs, 25 days). I learned neva to stand in a corner, might get "painted", LOL. But spent a lot of time on/near the Fulda Gap, and deployed humanitarian missions. NE way, respect to all those who have served, Past/Present and Future to include First Responders.

    I sure worry about the life that My Kids and Grand Kids gonna have, for I fear we are leaving the country in a worse way then what was left for us. No one is paying much attention to what we learned and say, the Far Left just out there, alas....

    All be Safe and Proud.

    Morning Gents. 60* this morning but 97* later. Thought the attached might start the day with a smile. House immigration hearings yesterday and impeachment hearings this morning are beyond disgusting and bizarre. BUT,,,the Rebubs who stood up and articulated for common sense, attention to facts and called out the criminal Dems should be applauded. Fitz

    Good Mornin'!
    We're getting a little light rain here. It had sprinkled a bit, but had stopped when I went out with the dog earlier; and now it's back with a little more purpose. In this country, the problem is not likely going to be with the military or law enforcement, but instead will come from the civilians in government who issue the orders to them. No orders, no action(s) taken and the whole country could be gone in no time, flat. Case in point, Baltimore's finest being told to "stand down." Something like that at a national level? It wouldn't have anything to do with the troops themselves, who are not sworn to pick up the task "if leadership fails."
    My battle today is limited to figuring out what isn't working right in my oil furnace. I have gone through quite a few junctions under wire nuts. I found two that were less than optimal, so I corrected that, but there is still no power to the oil delay valve. The task will continue in a while. Meanwhile, I hope everybody has a great day!

    No POWER, lol, of course U know what to look for and look for power issues. Possible something simple as an inline fuse or issue at Fuse box? Or is it gonna take tracing line, dat sucks. Good Luck on yer search...

    FWIW; There have been times in the past where I had been ordered to cease and desist, boy was I mad, but Chain of Command...


    ADDED: All critters fed and I had a sandmich and cup of JOE. Roofers are here replacing garage roof, so hopefully all goes well... All stay Cool and have a Great Day...

    Update: heat is ***on***. I turned the thermostat down so that it would not call for heat. I figured that when I turned on power to the furnace, the electronic primary control would communicate with the electronic control in the power vent and maybe tell me something. When I turned on the switch at the furnace, the power vent started up, which it should not do, since there was no call for heat. Then I realized that the burner motor was not running, which it was also not running before, but I didn't put the pieces together correctly. Now, I figured that the power vent was initializing its timer, which it does the first time it's powered up. I can't recall one doing it again, but this one did. It runs for 10 minutes and shuts off, which it did. Then it's ready for work. Had the wife turn up the thermostat and the furnace started and ran normally, smooth as silk. So I was wrong about something being wrong. I still found and fixed some questionable junctions, so that's good. As the Texans say, we're in bidness.:D

    ^^Just read HR's heating system report. (Love this stuff) I think I am understanding, that the heating system has worked fine in the past. You have not looked into "how it works" until this year. But now that it got a bit more attention, thought it might not be working as efficiently as it should. Glad to hear no harm, no foul, no cost.
    So here is how OCD (not you) can effect the outcome of preventive maintenance. Which I really believe in.
    Last spring I "checked" our York split unit AC for summer. Coils in the attic, compressor outside. 14 year old unit that has been working fine. Upon "my inspection" I found that the filter blanket around the condenser was original and showing signs of age from being hosed out once a month. The top of unit has a heavy wire cage that the fan motor hang's from. Paint peeling and starting to rust. Just not acceptable. And I have the time to make it perfect. Want to get 25 years out of this unit. Got the model and serial number. Ordered a new filter blanket. The cost of the top cage versus the cage and motor together was only $80. So I got both. Easy install, plug and play. Got my air hose up in the attic and blew out the overflow in the condensation pan. Needed it. Brushed out the coils, checked the flare and compression fittings all good. Damn, this puppy is going to sing. One week into the heat season and the unit goes down. Program locked up cannot override. Called my AC guy. First thing he says is, wow good idea to replace the air filter blanket on the compressor unit. Oh, it looks like you also replaced the cage and fan motor. Yep. He gets out his scanner and looks at the lock out codes. (These units are highly electronic) It tells the tech to check the fan motor. Yep my unit called for a two speed motor. Distributor sent me a single speed. System was confused. Shut down to protect its self. $300 additional dollars later, it runs perfect. My wonderful tech mentions on his way out. You know these units really do not need much maintenance and they will run 20-25 years. I have come to recognize that too much time, a curious mind and the habit of having to make it right,,,can be expensive and embarrassing. But you guys are the only ones who know.
