This season is very dry

Every year I find myself longing for Spring. The weather of Winter season is cold as heck. The ice has gotten old. The piles of snow that are brown and gross along the roadside look bad. Even at the start of the Winter season when all this snow is fresh and perfect I do not enjoy Winter season. The cold weather makes me feel very cooped up and I hate being stuck inside for the long Winter season weeks! Finally, just when I need it most Spring will come and save me. The snow will melt and the heat will feel great. Spring’s arrival saves me from using the gas furnace all day every day, and then our gas furnace runs nice and honestly I am grateful for it, although I do not enjoy running it. The gas furnace keeps the home warm through the entire Winter season. The heating rarely causes us any issues . It has only had a few minor issues  in the almost 7 years and every one of us have had it. The big problem with our gas furnace is that it always dries out the air in our house. The dry air drives me nuts. It makes the home get so stuffy. The stuffiness sticks for the entire month of January because every one of us run the gas furnace a lot during the Winter season. I don’t believe I can fix the stuffiness. The people I was with and I have a program that controls the humidity, however it does not make the air damp enough when the gas furnace runs that often. The outside air is always chilly during Winter season however it is still fairly wet. The inside air has all the moisture zapped out by the heater. At least the gas furnace kept us warm.

Dry air because of my stupid heater

Every year I find myself longing for Springtime’s arrival. The weather of Wintertime is frosty and dreary. The snow has gotten old. The piles of snow sit brown and ugly along the roadside… Even at the start of Wintertime when all this snow is fresh and nice I do not enjoy Wintertime. The frosty weather makes myself and others cooped up and I don’t care for being stuck inside for the long Wintertime months; Finally, just when I need it most Springtime will arrive. The snow will melt and the sun will shine brightly. Springtime’s arrival saves myself and others from using the furnace all morning every morning, but our furnace is great and undoubtedly I am grateful for this, but I do not enjoy running this. The furnace keeps the lake house moderate through the entire Wintertime season. The heating rarely causes us any concern. It has only had a few minor things in the almost 8 years the people I was with and I have had it. The biggest complication with our furnace is that it always dries out the air in our house. The dry air drives myself and others quite nuts. It makes the lake house so stuffy and it has bad indoor air. The stuffiness sticks around for the entire Wintertime because the people I was with and I run the furnace a lot while the people I was with and I were in the Wintertime. I don’t suppose we could fit the air quality? We have a system that controls the humidity, however it does not make the air damp enough when the heater runs that often. The outside air is always frosty while the people I was with and I were in Wintertime, however it is still damp. The inside air has all the moisture zapped out by the heater. At least the furnace runs so I cannot complain.

The newest air conditioner

my spouse plus myself recently decided to go on a very long vacation, let both of us had spent the last 2 years saving for. We planned a very luxurious trip to the Bahamian islands, and when we finally had enough money saved both of us immediately booked our trip. The two of us found a very quiet yet beautiful house by the side of the ocean that offered all of the amenities we hope to find. Well it wasn’t really difficult to find some place with central air conditioning, my wife and I manage to find a small bed and breakfast that offered the accommodations that we sat out. My wife and myself arrived on a Wednesday, and plan to stay for 6 nights and 7 days. We had a few outdoor activities planned for the week, and we had a lot packed into our schedule. we were very tired from our flight, and decided to turn in early. We set the alarm for 6:30 in the morning, and turned on the cooling system. The air conditioner was so loud, that both of us had a lot of trouble sleeping. A maintenance person was sent to the room, but 30 minutes later they still had not figured the problem now. We asked for a new room, and we were told that they only had a few rooms with Eric conditioning, and there were no other rooms left. The air conditioner was so loud on that night, that we both slept terribly. The air conditioner was loud and had the most awful smell. At least the best thing about the air conditioner, was that while it made noises and smelled badly, it still cooled the room perfectly.

The people I was within I went to inform the hotel maintenance staff that the cooling system was making these terrible noises, and they informed us there was nothing they could do about that. There were only 6 rooms that had air conditioning system installed, and they had no other rooms left. We were forced to spend the rest of our vacation sleeping in terrible conditions, why we listen to the sound of the malfunctioning cooling system. The upside to this was that the air conditioning system actually worked, but it kept us up all night long making terrible noises.The people I was with plus myself and my husband, did our best to enjoy the holiday,  despite the fact that the cooling system was loud as well as obnoxious all night long.

Going to a movie theater with a broken A/C unit

Ever since I was a young child, I have always loved going to the movie theater to see new films. It’s a pastime I still enjoy to this day. Anytime I get a day off, I try and gather up some buddies to go to the movies.  There is just something about the theater, the smell of popcorn, the ambiance, the ability to get lost in the pictures for a few hours and escape reality, it’s always been very special to me. My most recent trip to the theater however was an absolute nightmare. My buddy and I arrived to the theater to find the inside hot and sticky.  I thought perhaps the A/C would kick on once the picture started.  It was August and the temperature outside was in the upper 80s. 20 minutes into the movie the theater was still a hot box so I went to the front desk to see if they could do anything about their A/C.  They told me their A/C had recently stopped working and that a HVAC technician was on his way to inspect the unit.  I was glad they were getting it taken care of, but it didn’t look like it would be fixed during my stay at the theater.  I asked for a refund and that I would return again once their A/C unit was fixed.  They understood and apologized.  These things happen, but there is nothing worse than going out to enjoy yourself and being stuck in a dark theater feeling hot and uncomfortable.  I hope their A/C is fixed so I can resume my almost weekly tradition.

We arrived on a Saturday, and planned to stay for six nights. We had a few different excursions planned for the week, and we were very excited to get started. We set the alarm for 6 a.m. in the morning, and settled down for the evening to get some sleep. As soon as we turned on the air conditioner, it started to make the most horrendous noises.

Cooling the loaf

If anybody ever tells you that the most important part of being a good baker is that you have to have read a ton of books on baking, they’re silly and you should not listen to them. Traditional education theories like the “reading text books” theory are all a big old lump of rubbish. You can’t learn a skill by reading books about it. You have to do it first hand. You have to learn from a master. Essentially, I’m talking about apprenticeships here. It is what I did and it is what my father and his father and his father’s father did. We are generations of brilliant bakers. The most important part though, the advantage we have nowadays is the home HVAC system. This might sound crazy, but the reason why the best bakers in history exist now, is climate control, as per contemporary standards. No baker could ever have made perfect bread, before HVAC systems, as we know them today. Getting the recipe right is easy. Setting the thermostat on your oven, so as to implement the ideal temperatures is also easy. However, modern day climate control systems come into play when it comes to the cooling of your baked goods. Air conditioning therein is the final step to making the perfect cake or loaf. But, really nice A/C never really existed until about twenty years ago. The HVAC systems that our grandparents had were crude and simple. You could turn on the A/C but it would turn your house into a dry icebox. Good bread needs optimum climate control for cooling, period.
