    • thanks Anne! It has been very warm and humid here in Ohio, and my air conditioning is not working. The furnace/AC needs a new circuit board…which sounds ominous. It is the first time this year we have tried to turn on the AC, right in the midst of a heat wave 90 degrees.

      • During the winter the furnace starting acting up, but I was able to start the igniter manually. It needs a new circuit board thingy, but I couldn’t afford it at the time. So I need to get it repaired. In the meantime, I located the portable fans. What in the world did we do before we had AC? I remember how hot it would be when I was a kid.

      • We sweltered in the Tennessee summers. We had an attic fan. During the day we closed doors so that all the incoming air went through the kitchen. At night, we pulled the hot, humid air through the bedrooms. I don’t think we children suffered as much as our parents.

      • We had a similar attic fan system that pulled cooler air from the basement. As long as everyone understood about keeping the windows and doors closed and/or in their proper position it worked fine. We never did get AC in that house until after my husband died.
