Honey Vs. Vinegar

I am happy. A little over a week ago I wrote a friendly, neighborly letter to the small business across the way with the new AC turbine, explaining about the noise (see this entry). In the letter I said that if they would be kind enough to adjust the thermostat for weekends and nights, not only would we be able to enjoy our patio and front porch, and our electric bill would go down, theirs would go down too and they would conserve energy. This afternoon there was a crew of workmen out working on the unit and tonight it's QUIET.
