My water heater rusted out and my chiropractor mentioned they now have electric on-demand water heaters. I found one on the web that was reasonably priced (about twice the cost of a regular heater) and am now the owner of a Stiebel Eltron Tempra 29 tankless water heater. Notice the three power cables going into the bottom and the sub-panel behind my grand-daughter. When it's on it uses three 220 volt 50 amp circuits. When it's off it uses only the trickle of power necessary for the temperature readout LED.
It works great and it's nice to take a shower and not have to worry about running out of hot water. As you can see from the size, it also frees up all the space the tank took before. We gained another closet! That's always nice!

Since I got sick and missed all but one day of school last week, I've kind of had the Christmas season sneak up on me. I'm still recovering but I've got to find something for my wife for Christmas. I'm at a loss. Usually I come up with something, but this year I'm drawing a blank.

I'll think of something--I guess.

I've taken to wearing a bracelet. It says "Just Say Merry Christmas." It's a response to the politically correct crowd who are afraid of offending those who aren't afraid of offending us!

You can get these at World Net Daily Store

(See picture above right.)
