Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.  



Don't gamble; take all your savings and buy some good stock and hold it till it goes up, then sell it. If it don't go up, don't buy it.  

Will Rogers


You should never be proud of doing the right thing. You should just do it.  

Dean Smith


If at first you don’t succeed, try again. If you still don’t succeed, stop trying.  Sit down and think.  Persistence is a noble virtue, but it’s no substitute for evaluation.

                 R. W. Janssen


Let everyone sweep in front of his own door, and the whole world will be clean.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe


If someone tells you 2+2=3 and somebody else says 2+2=5 at least one of them is wrong.

The older I get, the less patience I have with cleverness.

Disappearing Act

Manhole covers from China to France to New York have been disappearing - stolen and sold for scrap.  There are hundreds of thousands of manholes in New York City, weighing in at over 300 pounds each.  One NYC thief thoughtfully puts up orange safety cones around the open manholes, but according to one expert crooks overseas often replace stolen covers with flimsy substitutes: 'they put a piece of styrofoam over the hole, like that's going to help'.


New SST3 Provides Cost Effective Electronic Control

    The brand new SST-3 brings precise electronic control to a wide variety of applications.  With a set point that is adjustable from 34 degrees to 150 degrees it's perfect for freeze protection, grease lines, hot water maintenance, and light process applications.  The set point is easily configured via the front panel.  The temperature sensor can be mounted up to 2,000 away from the control unit.
     The digital display provides real-time pipe temperature, as well as easy to understand error codes.  A low temperature alarm is activated if the pipe remains 4 degrees below the set point for 30 seconds or longer. Built-in alarm relays allow interface with building management systems.
     The SST-3 provides ground fault protection without the need for expensive GFEPD breakers utilizing a built-in 30 mA GFEP that is digitally filtered to minimize false tripping. The GFEP self-tests every 24 hours.
     For critical fire protection systems the SST-3 can be set with GFEP as alarm only, without de-energizing the heater cable, so trouble-shooting can take place without compromising safety.
     This precise controller energizes heaters when the pipe temperature goes below the set point, and turns them off when the temperature rises 2 degrees F above the set point, saving energy and money.  The temperature sensor can be mounted up to 2,000 feet away from controller.
