It was a great thing for me that I knew a really good plumber in Essex county NJ who was willing to drop what he was doing and come to fix the heat at my place. Of course he is a mechanical contractor rather than the sort of plumber you usually call if you have a leak or you need to replace the toilet. So he can do all of the troubleshooting on heating and air conditioning systems. It was a good thing for me that he sort of owed me a favour. He was in trouble with his wife and I told her it was all my fault. Obviously it did not harm me if his wife was mad at me, I did not have to live with her. He had messed up, but I was thinking ahead. Read the rest, dangit!
