I’ve been so busy lately working on my “RidingWithRetep” stuff lately that I’ve neglected to post anything “normal” about what’s been going on. I guess when you boil it down, not much is really all that new but I will try to sum up things from the past few weeks.
So it finally decided to start getting warm a few weeks ago. I broke down and decided to turn the AC on for the first time this year, and let me tell you how pleased I was when it turned on. I let it run for about an hour and a half and I noticed that it didn’t seem to be getting any cooler. So i checked the thermostat, and sure enough, it was the same temperature as when I turned on the AC. I spent half the day turning it off and then back on again and finally I called the wife and told her what was going on and then we decided to call somebody to have it fixed. I wasn’t sure who I was going to call because I have several, and when I say several, I mean SEVERAL, friends who do HVAC. But I decided to go with my homeboy and texted him. He came out the next day and checked it out, and sure enough we had to replace the unit. Not only because of it’s age, but because of the type of coolant it used is going to be extinct in the next year. So he put a unit in for us, and it’s been working great. Although, it’s a bit weird because the type of motor that is in it, apparently is better to be left on “On” all the time vs. auto. When I worked at Papa John’s they were very adamant about always making sure the fan was set to Auto and not on so that they don’t freeze up. Anyways, if you need some HVAC work done, check out GRmetro!
I decided to rewatch all the Transformers movies. Why? I don’t know why. Just because I wanted to. Currently I have like an hour left of Transformers 3. I’ll watch 4 today and then a couple tomorrow. I know some people bag on the movies because of this reason or that reason, but really, what are you expecting. It’s giant robots fighting. Other than that, I got caught up on Agents of Shield. I was several episodes behind. This season is shaping up to be pretty good. It’s interesting the direction they’ve been taking
On a final note, I think it’s silly that people complain about fireworks. Now please don’t get me wrong. I understand that certain people have animals that don’t do well with fireworks, and I also understand certain people don’t as well. That being said, I also don’t think it’s fair for those people to ask entire neighborhoods to not do fireworks. It’s just silly. I don’t understand why an entire neighborhood or neighborhoods of people should have to stop doing fireworks vs the one or two people in each neighborhood going somewhere else where it’s going to be quiet. There are already laws preventing fireworks from being done between certain times on the holidays, and even preventing them from being done on days that aren’t holidays. The majority of the year they don’t have to worry about it already, and then they want the neighborhood to not do them on holidays too. I know I’m probably coming off as a turd for saying this, but lets really be honest here. I’m all about helping people and being polite. If fireworks were an everyday issue that people had to deal with than I maybe could understand the reasoning. But this a special occasions type of thing, and they’re trying to take that away too.
Anyways, I better quit ranting. I’m sure i’ve probably touched a nerve with somebody already.
