( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Sigh. It's been an expensive year. Last fall my 18 year-old dishwasher died, so I bought a replacement. $. In the spring, my venerable oil-burning furnace was condemned, so I made the change to gas and had a gas furnace installed in July. $$$$$$$$$$. In September, my 24 year-old fridge died, so I bought a replacement. $$. Last weekend, my 21 year-old hot water heater died; a replacement is coming this afternoon -- fortunately, that's covered because I rent the unit.

Of course, this poll talks about 'acquisitions' like it's a third red sports car .. I need these things to get by, especially hot water. Ever tried washing dishes with a kettle of boiling water and cold from the taps? It's pretty tricky. And 'showering' yesterday was quite entertaining -- never realized how much I appreciated having a quick hot shower to get myself started in the morning.

But I digress .. back to work, everyone! :)
