I'm definitely a feeling type - I just preordered the 9.7 iPad Pro, for example - but I never cared much about phones. The 5S was my first phone because of that disinterest. I will buy the 5 SE because I don't need large and I'd rather spend the extra two or three hundred dollars that will save on other things.

Control  - 
I like the new rental/hardware as a service for Control/Operator boxes. I haven't sold any yet, but although obviously more expensive, it eliminates a lot of future headaches.

Wish there was a way to offer some sort of deal to existing customers to attract them to that.

Omigod. I just found out that many of our friends HAVE TRANSGENDER BATHROOMS IN THEIR OWN HOMES!

What's next, transgender restaurants? Transgender apartment buildings?  
Where will the madness end?

Dan was an engineer. If you can imagine an engineer running such a place, maybe you'll understand why some people find him rude. However, he's actually a very nice man and his wife Ginny is lovely also. We've been coming here since 1989 (before Dan and Ginny owned it) and simply wouldn't consider anywhere else. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is always great and our fellow members are wonderful people. If you have any trouble with Dan (very unlikely unless you are breaking rules), just say "Yes, Oh Mighty Master!" and he will laugh. Seriously - don't let that bad review cause you to miss a wonderful resort.

We had Nick G. in for a furnace problem a few weeks ago and because he was so professional on that, we had him back to remove, reseal and put back a badly installed kitchen sink. The cost was definitely more than than it should have been ($200 for about an hour's work), but on the other hand the job was done professionally, cleanly, and quickly. That's worth paying extra for, at least for me. We had another local plumber in a few weeks ago to put in a shutoff valve on our washing machine: they gouged up our floor moving the machine and would have broken the door of the washer if I hadn't yelled at them that they had it jammed - I do not get the feeling that ARS would ever have let that happen. With other workman we have to watch like hawks, laying out old towels so they don't scratch things with their tools - again, Nick did that automatically. It looks to me that he's always thinking about stuff like that. Little details like wearing pull-on boot covers and spreading out a cloth matter. So - ARS is not the cheapest, but if you want quality and care, I definitely recommend them. With cheap, you get what you pay for.
