HVAC controls for our Equinox

Never too late … to learn. I guess. Last winter I noticed that when we turned to heat in our 2012 Chev Equinox the air came out on the floor. I usually run the system on Auto (yellow pointer) and simply turn the A/C on or off (blue pointer) for cooling or heating. But we wanted the heated air to come out the console vents, to warm our upper bodies. So I used the upper airflow control (red pointer) to make the air come out the console. Instead it came out the floor vents. When I pressed the lower airflow control it came out the console. So I thought something had gotten messed up with the controls. Continue reading Never too late.

Doggie door update. Tablet charger update. Crafts.

It’s working! Kerby has been using the modified doggie door on a regular basis and without any fuss or hesitancy. You’ll remember a day or so ago I added a tieback feature that allows us to lift the doggie door flap and hold it open when we want.

So at this point the February newsletter is progressing well. Last month I messed up two items on the calendar but I have now taken steps to avoid that problem in the future.

Machaca Relleno at Los Compadres

Supper tonight was an impromptu affair. As we getting ready to leave the pool Elaine mentioned something about getting supper ready; I  knew she had set some fish out to thaw. But she seemed tired, so I suggested we go out to dinner instead. She quickly agreed! Agnes Volk had mentioned Los Compadres, a Mexican restaurant down on Northern that I used to go to when I worked at Wood Patel nearby but have not been to for a few years. So I thought we should give it a try, since Elaine had never been there. We were happy with our meal and, of course, brought about half home as leftovers. She had a Chicken Fajita, I had a Machaca Relleno. both good. And we both had a margarita. Continue reading Los Compadres. Dogs groomed. Tablet keyboard. Royal Palm news.
