LG (looking good) Air Conditioners

I went to bed early and I am up now.
Our air conditioning unit outside died and the man said I would have to replace it 3700 dollars. We cannot afford to do that at the moment and we decided to get 2 window units from Home Depot and a portable unit for the living room as it does not have any window openings suitable for a Window unit.
Our outside unit that died was a 3 ton unit and we have about 1175 square feet to cool. 

"I saw this on the internet. Take the square footage of your home and multiply it by 25, then divide this amount by 12,000. This will tell you the size (ton) you will need for your central a/c. Example....1175 sq ft. home multiply by 25 equals 29, 375 divided by 12,000 equals 2.44. You would  
need a  2 or 3  ton unit.

2400  = 2 tons
3600  = 3 tons


   Mom had 5000 btu unit in her bedroom
I now have 6000 btu unit in Allison's room.
I now have 6000 btu unit in Eli's room.
I now have 12000 btu unit in the living room
for a total of 29000 btu.
I calculated  29375 btu


This year we had to fix the pickup.
Our stove died, we had to get a new one.
Mom wanted a new front door so we bought one
on our way home the van went up in smoke we had to go to the bank to fix the van.
Last week our air conditioner went out.

Cutting Small Tree Weeds.

Good Morning,
Mom and I went out early before the heat and weeded next to west side of our home. I also picked up more grass clippings and put them next to the crawl space door.

4:00 PM
Our Air Conditioner quit sending us cool air. I looked outside and it was not dripping. I know that it was over 100 at about 3:00 PM

My Antanna

Good Morning.
I tried my outside antanna facing west and it did not pick up channels in Paducah, KY. This morning  rotated the anatana east toward out KET channels in Madisonville and tried again and I pcked up 4 channels which are clear as a bell.
What does that mean? It means I need a tower and rotor to pick up channels in Paducah, KY, Evansville, IND. and Cape Girardeau, MO., Murray, KY.

TV Station

Good Morning, 

When I fired up the Chipper Shredder we lost two male kittens because of the noise. It is loud and when I shred tree limbs it is even louder. After dark the kittens came out after the sun went down.
I am finally getting used to Roku and Chrome cast. We are in the process of getting an antenna put up to receive Channel six here n Marion. Channel Six is where Jeopardy is played. Mom has not seen Jeopardy for a least 7 days.

Chipping Wood

Good Morning,
I picked up grass clipping and mulched the area in back of the house. I mowed a couple of days ago. I just now started my chipper shredder and ran fine; very loud but it ran fine. I will get dressed shortly and go out and mulch limbs.

Good Morning,
I made a mistake and placed my NARFE page here. 
It thundered last night with bright flashes. I think I am post today's post on the wrong day.  This morning I put together an antanna to place outside on the roof. I am not sure it will work but if I get four local stations the maybe mom can watch Jeopardy.
