Review: Air Conditioner Repair Dallas

If you need an air conditioner repair person in Dallas, I thought I would share our experience.

Recently, our neighbors had to have their air conditioner fixed.  Having moved to Dallas not that long ago, they told me they did not know who to call.  So they called a large national chain to come and look at their air conditioner.   We also had to have our air conditioner fixed.  From our neighbors description, our problems seemed similar.  They wound up having a large and very expensive repair.   We had a smaller repair (@$300).  I am not sure if the problems were the same or not, but we have someone we trust.  Had she asked me, I could have given her the name of an excellent air conditioner repair person:  Oliver of We Fix It (972-227-2433) Google Listing Here.

Oliver has been servicing our air conditioning units through 2 homes.    Oliver is not on Twitter or Facebook.   He doesn’t blog or even have a web site. He does business the old fashioned way. You have to call and scheduled an appointment.   But for us, he is reliable and trustworthy and has saved us a lot of money over the past few years.

Here is our experience in case you are not sure who to call.  Below is a picture of Oliver and his son (who is learning the business).

Dock Boggs Sugar Baby Video and Lyrics

Dock Boggs is pure greatness. If you want to hear great old time bluegrass/folk music, Dock Boggs should be near the top of your list.

Here is a video of the classic “Sugar Baby.”  This song has been redone many times by several artists, including Bob Dylan. This video was made by jwbos1388. You can check out more of their work at http://www.youtube.com/jwbos1388.

Here are the Lyrics.

Sugar Baby

Oh I’ve got no sugar baby now

All I can do is to seek peace with you

And I can’t get along this a-way

Can’t get along this a-way

All I can do, I’ve said all I can say

I’ll send it to your mama next payday

Send you to your mama next payday.

I got no use for the red rockin’ chair,

I’ve got no honey baby now

Got no sugar baby now

Who’ll rock the cradle, who’ll sing the song

Who’ll rock the cradle when I’m gone

Who’ll rock the cradle when I’m gone?

I’ll rock the cradle, I’ll sing the song

I’ll rock the cradle when you gone.

It’s all I can do

It’s all I can say,

I will send you to your mama next payday

Laid her in the shade, give her every dime I made

What more could a poor boy do

What more could a poor boy do?

Oh I’ve got no honey baby now

Got no sugar baby now

Said all I can say, I’ve done all I can do

And I can’t make a living with you

Can’t make a living with you

Lyrics are from McGuinn’s Folk Den.

Our American Car is Better Than Our Japanese Car

In December 2007, my wife, Heidi, and I purchased a 2008 Ford Fusion.   After having the car for almost 1 1/2 years, it is safe to say this is the best car I ever owned.   We are not car-people and have no connection to any car dealer or company, but we want to share our experiences.

As we began to look for a new car, I really wanted to buy an American car.   It is important to me to try to buy American-made products.  But, Heidi really needed convincing.  Heidi always drove a Honda or Toyota and never owned an American car.   Actually, she was very skeptical and really didn’t want to buy a US-made car.  But, I asked Heidi to look at American made cars (Chrysler, Ford and GM) and if she could not find one she liked, we would look elsewhere.  Being a reasonable women, she agreed.

After visiting GM and Chrysler dealers and test driving some models, we went to see Ford cars.  At the time, the only thing she knew about Ford were the commercials featuring the very cool Sync option in the car.  But, after test driving the Fusion, Heidi was immediately impressed.  For her, it handled well and the safety options were very, very impressive. For me, it got good gas mileage and was an American car.

When we told people we purchased a Ford, people gave us some grief.  Many people were convinced American cars were expensive and poorly made.  But now, this seems to have changed, especially regarding Ford. Ford seems to be hot and is getting great press for their cars.

My wife had a 2000 Honda Accord which we traded-in for the Ford.   Although the Honda was fully-loaded and the Ford has only the basic package, we paid less for the 2008 Fusion that my wife paid for the Honda in 2000.  So much for the stereotype that American cars are more expensive.

Our other car is a Mazda Protege 5, which can be described as just adequate.  The Mazda is paid off, which is the only reason we still own it.  The car has had several repairs, some of which seemed to happen earlier than necessary.  We drive the car when the kids are not coming along.

We purchased the car at North Central Ford (Central Expressway & Campbell Rd in Richardson),which has provided us with good service.

If you are looking at a Honda Accord, Honda Civic or Toyota Camry and do not test drive the Ford Fusion, you are getting ripped off.
