The NurflugelBlog is a place where I can vent my spleen about pretty much anything that crosses my mind. Politics, religion, those annoying little indignities we all have to put up with - I have plenty to say about them.

OK, it wasn't the US Post Office

Got my first CD back from the Post Office, seems I left out a line from the address with the city and postal code.

The US Mail strikes again!

Seems that the German clinic never got my MRIs I mailed them... so, burn another CD, and off it goes. Should be there in 6-8 days. In the meantime I put them on my web site and sent links. 80 MB is a bit large for most people, but you never know.

On other related news, the first neurosurgeon has scheduled both X-rays and bone density scans for me - cool! Nice to find someone whom I can work with.

The windows are in!

Mmm, new windows!

After a week of various antics (Monday: "Oops, we didn't order all the parts we needed three months ago, we'll be back again Thursday!"), my windows are in. Almost done, anyway. Still missing a screen door ("Did you order a screen door with that?"), and a few hardware problems (such as a window not locking, and one that won't open), and some loose hardware (tighten those screws, anyone?).

And, this company was top-rated on Angie's list. I'd really, really hate to see what the bottom rated guys were like.

In any case, it's done, they look good. Should make a good bit of difference in my heating and cooling bills, and I get a $500 tax credit.

Best part of all - I can clean the bloody things! The previous windows had "storm windows" for the second pane, which were screwed on. Crappy insulation quality, and got all dusty inside, impossible to clean without a ton of work. These are top of the line Milgard Infinity's, guaranteed for the life of my house.

Woo hoo!
