    She's a terrific writer

    If you want more, check out this book, which is wonderful. There's an old house in it. Oh, and a bar.

    Alchemy does some interesting

    solar and radiant projects. RPA awards and all. They get a lot of press for the industry.

    Quite a press-fitting sculpture on the solar relief valve line!

    But it does look to be a solar specific, Caleffi valve :)

    Thanks Dan!

    As usual, your recommendation was spot on. I took this book on vacation and couldn't put it down. You're right, she's a great writer. At points, she made me laugh out loud and other parts brought tears to my eyes. My wife (also a writer) is in the middle of it and loves it.

    Thanks Dan!

    Wendy's awesome...

    Just recorded a podcast with Wendy this past week...should be on the FloPro site any time now. She makes a ton of interesting points...especially about what heating contractors need to know about "regular people," and what they're looking for...

    Makes you want to be there with them all, doesn't it?

    It's a shame it all had to end. I'm glad you enjoyed it.

    Have you seen Dan's Reading List? Lots of other good stuff in there. Thanks.
