It's been a weird couple of weeks. I'm calling it the crazy, the bad and the good. The crazy - My doctor prescribed a new drug for my tremor. I was supposed the take 1/2 tab at night for two weeks until I got used to the drug. Well, after five days I was becoming more and more confused. On the morning of the sixth day I found myself at the bathroom door trying to figure out how to open it. No more tremor drugs for me.
The bad - Our heat pump died. We've spent about $500 over two months trying to repair it. No more. It's time for a new heat pump even though it's only 13 years old. It's a trane. I will never again own a trane product. If you have 4 or 5 hours to spare I'll tell you why. The next bad - If you're going to have someone come and give you heat pump quotes make sure you're sitting down. I wanted a 18 to 20 seer variable speed compressor. The Lennox with a cash discount and a rebate is almost $15,000. The Daikin is over $1,000 more. The carrier person hasn't even bothered to call us back for an appointment. I guess business is to good to bother. We'll get a quote from Bryant next week. Talk about sticker shock.
The good - I'm now off all of my diabetes medication. My diet is about the same so I'm going to say it's because of all the exercise I get on my recumbent trike.
Linda has a new hybrid orchid blooming called windward flare. She likes the smell but I think it stinks. Anyway, attached are two photos of the windward flare.
