      If she was a professional, she wouldn’t be in Mason City. We don’t exactly hire the cream of the crop here, you know.

      sorry, I didn’t watch the video, answered my own question. How long is it going to be that we have to pay for a new heating system there when the old boiler system fails? There has got to be a better way to heat that place.
