Odds and Sods

As the warmer weather approaches, I've told D that we will be endeavoring to reduce our air conditioner use this summer. This will mean higher temperatures in house.

D's car sale fell through. All I have to say about that is that using the tactic of "low balling" will not endear anyone, especially us.

D has started selling some of his hobby equipment online. I am going to rummage through my things to see if I have anything left worth selling.


  1. Where in Canada do you live? Does it actually get warm enough that far north to require an air conditioner?

  2. Hi Executioner!

    The southernmost point of Canada is actually south of the southern border of New Hampshire.

    I live in Southern Ontario. Today it is going up to 22 C (71.6 F) but our humidex (what it will feel like because of the humidity) will be 30 C (86 F) and we are only spring.

    In the dead of summer, our humidex values can reach in the high 30's and 40's C. It makes it hard to breathe for some people (and animals) and cities will issue smog warnings where people (young and old) will be recommended to stay indoors.

    This is why I have an affinity for the mountains, water and the east coast...
