Update

To say it’s been a long while since I’ve updated the blog is an understatement. I can’t believe this is my first post of 2017 and it’s almost a quarter over.

Last night had been the last straw as I removed the remaining plastic from my air conditioner I had banished to the basement. While I wouldn’t call myself cheap, I would…
