Lasko 3540 Cyclone 20-Inch Pivoting Floor Fan with Remote Control

Link: http://www.amazon.com/Lasko-3540-Cyclone-20-Inch-Pivoting/dp/B001DNGRYG/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1240443537&sr=8-1

On the weekend, I started finding it uncomfortably warm at night....particularly in the area under the headgear of my CPAP mask. I was resorting to turning the thermostat down.

It isn't that warm and humid yet....could get really expensive if I'm going to need to do this all summer. Temporarily I have inverted the sleep time temperature range on my set-back thermostat. Normally, its not as cool when I'm sleeping. Now its cooler than any other time.

While I was laying there waiting for the A/C to have its effect, the air purifier kicked itself to high and it made a slight improvement in comfort. Years ago when I lived in Medicine Hat, and didn't have air conditioning...I had floor fans (TurboAire) that I pointed at the ceiling to circulate air and make things tolerable. I had given them away a few moves ago....

But, I thought that maybe I should get something like it ASAP. I had been looking previously, but it wasn't a rush then...so I had put it off, because I wanted to find the same brand as I used to have....but it wasn't coming up in my internet searches (partly because I couldn't remember the brand name).....and because I was looking for a fan, rather than an 'air circulator'

However, now that I was in a hurry to get one....I looked to Amazon Prime to have it come my way on a particular day when I was going to be home for other reasons.

It was hard trying to find out if the fan would tilt to the full blow into ceiling orientation (a video review of the Lasko 3540 didn't show it tilting more than a few clicks up) But, after narrowing down the choices that were sold by Amazon.com and in stock, so that I would get it today. I settled on this one.

Part of the reason was the remote control and another part was that it seemed to have only a two-prong plug. And, I crossed my fingers that it would go to the straight up orientation.

Home Ownership and annual vist from fire marshal?

Today, the fire marshal showed up to test my smoke detectors...which I had been informed was an annual thing. Though I have no knowledge of it having occurring last year (and I've been a home owner long enough that I should know....)

The fire marshal showed up and poked all my smoke detectors with a stick and left. It was annoying because it uses up the battery, and I want to save the power for any real smoke during the bi-annual replace batteries and test that I do.

While I was waiting at home, I got an email that the fire marshal was showing up for their annual inspection at work today.

I commented to the state fire marshal that it was kind of annoying to take time off from work to let them into my private home. And, additionally, that the same day they want to inspect my place of work.

the state fire marshal was only there to inspect state property....and that maybe it was the city fire marshal that had shown up at my home, but it seemed odd.

He would call the city fire marshal and find out if they had been at my home, etc and get back to me. They did, and they told me the city fire marshal would be contacting me. He did, and had he known that some units at Collegiate Villas Condominiums were privately owned, he would've checked with the building owner to find out which units were. So, why didn't the building owners care about us condo owners?

:hmm:

Now instead of subjecting some poor random forum to a long rambling thought, I will try to consolidate those things into this blog where they can be more easily ignored profess to be collected thoughts from my mind.
