    My SIL got a quote on replacement windows

    She actually got several, $10k or so from all but one. The one was a little high at $93,000 (not a typo on my part). The guy asked with a straight face at the conclusion of the walk through: "what can I do to earn your business?" She said get out!

    I asked if she had borrowed a Lamborghini and had it parked out front or something.

    We laughed about it all weekend

    A co-worker of mine was talking about getting a quote for replacement windows on her house. The contractor through Home Depot quoted her $50,000!

    I just replaced 17 windows with mid-level Pella dual-pane windows for $8,000. It's replacing the 4,000 windows I put in 21 years ago.

    I should point out that by replacing the furnace ($2100), the windows, a garage door (800) and adding insulation (200), my heating bill went from about 650 a month to about 115 a month all winter long. And, my house is warmer.

    Does she live in a glass house?

    About those stones, ...
    Whatever adjective or verb comes to mind, I am...NotSo.

    One of my goals in life is to shoot more people on purpose than I do by accident. So far, so good.

    Every A/C I replaced paid for itself fairly quickly.

    I got a quote for 8 windows, 1 entry door and 3 sliders down here in southwest Florida $23,900... With the energy savings and reduction in insurance cost, the payback would only be about 31 years... Heck of a deal!
