    Should be fun -- as long as I can stay away from those websites I shouldn't be looking at!

    See you Friday...

    Used 6 of the VS outdoor reset pumps just this last week. Had two Buderus 215-7 oil boilers with parallel P/S piping. Had a manifold with 6 3/4" taps coming off. Each tap had a 007VS-OR pumps acting as a mini-tube injection system to 6 remote manifolds. Engineer had originally spec'd 2-1/2" copper mains running over 600 feet to supply slab manifolds. I told them I had a better idea. Used 3/4" injection to remote manifolds utilizing the VS-OR pumps mounted at the remote manifolds. VS pump self-regulates slab supply temp and runs a small Taco 007 system pump at each manifold. Saved them a GOB of money in piping, pumps, labor etc. Works slicker than snot off a teflon coated ice cube (Now THATS SLICK!). Will be watching the WEBINAR for a few more ideas though. Hope all is well.
    Warm regards from chilly (3rd coldest October on record) Fairbanks.

    Are you glad to have your Governor back?

    See you next week!

    Yep, I'm sure she's glad too

    I don't know how anyone could ever willingly subject themselves to such minute scrutiny. However now that she has made a splash on the national stage, I don't think we are going to have her past this term.

    Finally saw Tina Fey's impression of her on Saturday Night Live. Uncanny.

    See you next week. It is currently -18 right now, supposed to go to -20 to -24 tonight. Been a right down chilly Autumn. I know, I know, only in Alaska is -20 considered "Autmun".

    adios, amoeba,

    Will The Bobby Orr Jersey

    With good reason....

    Tell him if someone would be so kind as to e-mail me a functioning mailing address, he, too, might be the proud owner of a RHS hat or hoodie, or very cool long sleeve T-shirt. Reciprocity is always appreciated though! As we speak, Mr. Paul Rohrs is sending me a "Biggerstaff Radiant" golf windshirt as he was the sad loser of the bet between himself and this Oklahoma ex-pat on the Oklahoma/Nebraska football game debacle. Wampum obtained at the painful expense of someone else is always sweeter!
