funny friday and such

Good morning.
It's been very cold in the morning. 23 yesterday. In the 50's during the day. Work has been busier than expected, so I still haven't had my haircut yet. Maybe today. We've got someone coming over next week to give us an estimate on replacing our furnace. They have some real good rebates right now, and our furnace is 25 years old. Don't want to spend the money, but it could cost us half the price if we do it now. We'll see.
And now on to our ff.........

For those of you who watch what you eat,
here's the final word on nutrition and health.
It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese drink very little red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5. The Germans drink a lot of beers and eat lots of sausages and fats
and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.


Eat and drink what you like. Being American is apparently what kills you.

    I just put in a new furnace this week...$2750.00. For that I'll get a tax credit of $750.00 this year and next on my federal taxes and possible rebates from MichCon/DTE (gas) and Consumers Energy (electric). Plus the (I hope) savings on my monthly gas bill...went from 80% efficient furnace to 95%!

    Hey guys...

    Yeah I know how painful it is to spend the money on something like a furnace, but if you can get deals, and tax credits, I would certianly consider it. In reality jumping from a 25 yr old appliance, which is probally barely 80% effecient when new, to a 95% plus unit, will pay foritself in short order alone. You know Murphy's Law dictates that it will go out in the most in opportune time, which means it will be bitter cold, the HVAC companies will be all backed up, and won't be offering any breaks on the price.
