    JWB, about the skin cancers, you don't necessarily ever have to have another one. I have come to view them like finding I have a new cavity at the dentist. If he finds one, I have it taken care of. I go to the dentist regularly so he can look for cavities before they are problematic, and have them fixed. It is just scary because of the big C word. In truth, it is the "other" skin cancer I have never had, and never want, that is so serious...melanoma. But now that I have had all these basal cell and squamous cell cancers removed, something even tiny that is dark and bleeds and doesn't heal, will send me flying to the dermatologist, and even if I should develop a melanoma, I will catch it in time so that it doesn't kill me. ;)

    Jem, that looks for all the world like spring. Is it some flowering fruit? Pear?

    I like to air out the house using the fan in the stove vent. It has a pretty effective roof mounted fan, I just put it on max and open a few windows in the other end of the house for a few minutes, and you get fresh air. Of course, the ventilation system could be set on max too, but the control unit is in the attic, so I don't mess around with that too often. I really should install a second control unit for that one.

    We don't have AC, just the air exchanger, but it works pretty great. It has a cool heat capturing system built in, sort of this huge rotating honey comb structure that the air is pushed through, it collects the heat from the exiting air and warms up the incoming air. You do need to remember to change filters every now and then though. I was pretty disgusted when I did that the first time.

    During the year and a half we've lived here, I've only wanted an AC for about 2 weeks. So I don't think we really need it. And a month of above 30C weather is not very common around here, it took the first two weeks for the house to warm up to uncomfortable levels.
