    Be the change you want to see in The world, you know? You just gotta put your foot down.

    Well, yes. It's just a very odd way of saying it. It implies that if I ran the fan for six straight hours, it would exchange the air up to 36 times. Which is technically true, but a really weird way to put it. No one would operate it that way.

    Like if I said "it took me twenty minutes to eat lunch. So in three hours I could eat nine lunches." Well, maybe...

    When you drive what unit of measure do you use? You don't tell the police you were doing a 2 minute mile in a 4 minute mile zone. Or do you? 30 MPH in a 15 MPH school zone.

    In that light, given the size of your house is likely different than your neighbors, as an engineer or designer I would compensate for those differences in the system/design specs and still deliver a system that changed out the air in each house 3-6 times per hour or Air Changes per Hour. The hour is constant just like in MPH. I actually would also specify the pressure at which that volume flow was occuring.

    Those are all fair points.

    And yeah, the size of the house is actually a huge factor. My house is quite small, so would probably result in more lunches/hr than the box would read.

    My mom decided that she wanted to be called “Oma” by my kids. So, as they learn to speak, I’m trying to teach them to shout “Oma’s Coming” like those kids on The Wire yell “Omar’s coming, y’all! Hide the stash!”

    Funny, but I actually try to leave most of my oxalis alone. The little pink flowers are beautiful. It's the "bamboo grass" that takes over my yard. I slowed it down a little in a few places, but it is going full force in others.

    On a brighter note, I do have blooms on the cherry tomato plants!
