Dave,

I was born and raised in Ashland directly across Chequamegon Bay from Bayfield. Enjoy the view of the Apostle Islands.

My brother owns a mechanical contracting business up in Ashland and just completed a renovation project of the lighthouse on Raspberry Island.

Enjoy your visit

    400,000 BTU 99.3% Operating Eff!

    And, get this: up to a max of 200' (combined) on the PVC venting. Dang, that's amazing. Who'd of thought we'd be seeing stuff like this 10 years ago.

    If we land the installation, I'll get pics.

    See ya-all in 10 days.

    yup

    Off to Bayfield, WI to sit on the shores of Lake Superior and stare at dark nite skies. The clan is gathering from far & wide. Should be about 45-strong. If I can shake this cold, scuba is on the list.

    But first - we stop over at The Mall of America for an overnighter tomorrow eve.

    Never had time to install the heat waste dump-zone for my solar, so our oldest will be staying here to use up the free hot water.

    Keep an eye on our local inspector while I'm away(G).

    Hand raised and waving wildly...

    Ten years ago the seeds had been sewn and some of them had even germinated into healthy sprouts. Many developed a healthy root system, but the stalks--like tomatoes--were weak and required some staking and tying for maximum yield. Those stakes and ties came from control--particularly proportional control. I won't even begin to claim that the plants are fully mature, but when the soil is well prepared and they receive reasonable care the yield is very near the maximum.

    14 years ago

    I installed a GlowCore in my new home. As you said, the stalk was weak. Went back to CI for years & now purring along with a modcon.

    No turning back & who would want to. Visited ISH in Germany in 03 & 05. In 03, I saw things that simply blew me away. Within months, that same technology began arriving here & within a year or two, lots of us were awakened and reenergized. Modulation came along & that was like having a bright light turned on in a dark room. The revolution was on solid ground.

    Not a day goes by that I'm not thankful for being involved in these trades. These are exciting times & full of opportunity.

    Being mainly a simple homeowner I've never had the benefit of ISH or similar, but I saw it happening--by looking to the past--and somehow knowing that the basic operation of today's best equipment would be more understandable to your granfather than to your father.

    Ten years from now, my musings and suggestions of the past years will seem quaint...

    The R & R

    will be good & the reunion will be salve for the soul. Six octogenarians with several teetering on the verge of 90 will lead the assembled group.

    The codes issue will be, I believe, a very long & protracted fight, but one worthy of making the effort. While it would be great to affect a positive change locally, and I'm hoping that becomes a reality, the bigger picture centers on PA's odd version of the UCC with gaping loopholes designed to take food off of contractors' tables and the lack of training for inspectors. If nothing else is accomplished beyond establishing check-lists for inspectors to follow, we'll have made an impact. I'm aiming a bit higher though(G), but realistic enough to know this will be like hitting a brick wall.

    July 11th 7:00 PM @ Tri-Hill twp bldg - Spring Garden Township supervisors mtg. I'm on the agenda to speak. I'm inviting the press to attend & I'll be giving them an outline of the transcript. During the presentation, I'll be handing out the full text to all supervisors, the press and their solicitor. I'll be inviting the inspector to attend too. He might as well hear it first-hand. Meanwhile, he has ignored repeated requests to divulge his title(s), cert #'s & license #'s. Once I have that info, and I will, I'll be filing a formal complaint with L&I. Next month, I'm meeting with a PA State Legislator. I understand a fair number of locals are afraid to step up for fear of retribution & that's ok. A bully-with-a-badge can be mighty intimidating and he's had no one to answer to for his entire career. I understand how they feel, but I've already crossed that line & besides which, I don't want to turn back.

    Apostle Islands

    We're doing a cruise to visit them.

    Just back from The Mall of America where Mike & I jumped on the roller coaster & we ate well at the Twin City Grill.

    Bayfield tomorrow.

    Dave Yates, in Bayfield and Minneapolis

    Hello, Dave. I am a homeowner who has really enjoyed The Wall, and Wallies, and benefited. Just wanted to say give a shout if you ever need a hand in Bayfield (where we have family at Red Cliff, on the rez), or Minneapolis (Mall of America country, eh?).

    Best wishes,
