For those of you who need a little bit of incentive to learn something new, even when it's a free seminar such as these, you might be interested in knowing that at certain locations for these seminars they'll be giving away a free Bucketboss toolbag to each attendee and, like John said, some locations are providing a free dinner.

OT - OF!!!

I think John and Mike are positively terrific for telling us about this series of lectures. Further, I accept-no, more than that, I would promote- that adequate attic ventilation is an important component of overall building health. On the other hand, my HI experience, -which is woefully limited to the frosty Northeast,- tells me that most of the time it is no more than a second tier issue. I've seen thousands of poorly ventilated, fully-functioning attics. What do the rest of you see?

I see a lot of attics that are vented, not vented, and everything in between. The number that have had problems are teeny tiny, and if there was a problem, it was always related to a series of issues, not just the lack of ventilation.

What happens w/the houses of the future that have no vents? No air exchanger = unhealthy IAQ, right?

More engineered environments w/HRV's?

Maybe I should have used aquiver...I'll agree. I like the way it looks as two words though. It just seems more emphatic.

Chad,

Say it ain't so. Classic damage control technique; you've obviously been hanging around too many 'zoids.

It's time for an intervention; somebody bring the jacks and the hot wax, I'll bring the used motor oil and the funnel, let's converge on Rochester and cure Chad before it's too late.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!

Hmmm, that hurt. It may have seemed like dodging but the fact is

I'm still not sure it's incorrect to say "all a quiver". "Aquiver" is a relatively recent contraction/ combination of "a quiver".

As for hanging around zoids...none of them has ever lasted more than a minute or two in my company.

Now visions of Randy with a Speedo & a Bucketboss Tool bag on a roof. Hmmm, what is it about these seminars?

Honestly, I couldn't pick out either of these guys in a police lineup even if the rest were pygmy headhunters. But this sounds entirely too Village People-ish for my comfort zone!

  • 2 weeks later...

I attended the Air Vent seminar this morning.

  • The food was awesome...like a quality hotel breakfast/ brunch
  • It started at 8:00 am sharp and it lasted exactly two hours...I like things that run on time
  • The information was/is pretty beginner oriented. Seasoned vets will benefit only from contacts made, and the awesome food. (burp)
