AirKing 9166 fan in action

AirKing 9166 fan in action - MP4

Got a new upstairs window fan. 20” and 1600 RPM, both intake and exhaust. They say it’s “whole house” and I believe ‘em. I can feel the air moving when I’m down in the basement. This’ll be perfect for when it’s hotter inside than out.

I’m seriously impressed so far. With sucking up the cold air from my basement my house is already 2° cooler since I turned it on. My kitchen isn’t hot and muggy for once even though it’s 79° outside.

I did have to do some creative mounting work because I didn’t want it permanently attached to the window. And then I hooked it up to Alexa with a TanTan Smart Plug and called it The Terminator.

Look for it on Amazon: AirKing 9166 20” Whole House Window Fan — $160 when I got mine.

We have a whole house fan, but its installed in the ceiling. We can drop 5 degrees in the first 10 minutes that we’re home after a long hot day. It’s amazing!!!

You can’t dump that there

Audio (MP3): 20180505 - You can't dump that there

For whatever reason the Chicago Tribune left newspapers on my sidewalk for three days in a row. I like that because reading the paper from start to finish broadens my horizons. I come across articles and the like that I wouldn’t have sought out on my own.

Like this particular Dear Abby-ish piece about a couple that was having a fundraiser with the funds coming from a cash bar. Another couple had shown up with their own wine and proceeded to drink out in the yard or something.

So then the columnist’s advice was to just bluntly ask them about it.

Whats up with that

“Daisy and Tom, we found a pile of wine bottles on the lawn near your car, and I think they came from you and your guests. What’s up with that?”

The thing I like most about this was the such few words the columnist offered to the person who wrote in. It wasn’t War and Peace, it was two sentences.

There’s a whole wide world out there squirrels, but sure, go ahead and dig where I planted grass.

It kinda looks like a ghost of a black cat digging out of the grave. Top right corner of the shape is the cat’s left ear. The 2 spots on the sidewalk are it’s paws.

I had a black and white cat. Adopted her, her name was little Debbie ( yes from the dessert) she was such a lover, lap cat ) I’m not a cat person primarily, but I loved her. Your cat reminds me of her.

I just saw a dude with a green mohawk driving an ambulance.

Okay, fine. That’s a lie. He had a topknot manbun.
