    Note how clever he was when he retagged the bag:

    I brought the old bag as a reminder of which beans I actually wanted, alas he was out of the Cuban ones, but had a not entirely dissimilar Costa Rican bean.
    (Reusing the bag gives you a $ 0.16 rebate :rofl:)

    The HVAC system is original to the house, the house is 30 this year. So we know we will be replacing it sometime soon. We're hoping to get another year out of it. We have to replace the skylight this summer and I'm not really looking forward to that expense. It's the old bubble kind, from the 80's when it was originally installed. It just started to leak, so our handy-man put a temporary patch on so we can make it to spring. We're looking for a nicer, square version that can open and close, close automatically when it rains and has built in blinds.

    Our house is only 10 years old. Everything they put in this place is a piece of CRAP. We really got taken here. Everything is uber-cheap but also uber-flimsy. At least the next heater we get will have a 10 year warranty; the old one had a 5 year warranty. Should run us about $2500.

    Ouch.

    @auntie: I had the same problem a couple of years ago. During a routine inspection of my furnace, I was casually informed that my system had to be shut down, for good, because it was putting out too much CO. This is not something that anyone wants to hear in January...

    Although you may take some comfort in the fact that you may be able to take a tax credit for a new, efficient furnace.

    ^ No problem. :techman:

    I don't know how much of a credit you can receive (I paid about as much for my new furnace as you did for yours, and I didn't get a whole lot of credit), but as long as you have the receipts, just send 'em all off to your accountant and let them handle it. Anything's better than nothing when it comes to saving money on taxes. :)

    anyhoo, my latest purchases:

    - Two bottles of Salvador margarita
