    Hi! I cojld have sworn I've been to yiur blog before but after looking at some of the

    I'm impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative
    and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail
    on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.

    I am very happy I found this in my search for something concerning this.

    Window air conditioners can suffer from other problems related
    to a defective fan motor or a faulty thermostat. To read
    this article in HTML format with pictures, please visit.

    We have become so much used to seeing air conditioners around us that we don.

    We made a pile of the mice out of heavy cardstock and drew the faces and ears on with markers. My daughter gave them to her little friends at school, and they have been a big hit with all of them :) Thank you for the great idea!!

    I made a few of the mice to put atop of the grandkids gifts this year. They will love them. Thanks for the idea.
