Steam is Supreme!

How true that statement is. Water is powerful, but in a altered state,as steam it is AWESOME! As you can probably tell by now, I LOVE STEAM! I am hoping to get some folks together here who feel the same way.

Just read a report about a boiler explosion in Paris, Tennessee. The thing that caught my eye was the reference to a 1D1D0 Warrick LWCO relay. Now, granted this boiler had a lot of things contributing to the explosion. Disconnected automatic feed water make up valve, a broken element in the McDonnell-Miller, absence of a trained operator. The boiler went to high fire in a low-water (read-NONE) condition. Water was added to the boiler instead of just extinguishing the fire. I operated two WG Cleaver Brooks 250 hp fire tube boilers almost identical to the that exploded. The relay in question malfunctioned constantly. I replaced four over the course of one year. ($350.00 ea) I could walk up to the boiler and knock with my hand on the controls cabinet and drop the boiler offline. Trying to get the relay to 'push-out' verses 'pull in' would be very tough. The relay works totally different from your normal design. Has anyone else had these same problems or a problem related to this relay?

Your favorite things about raising a boy

So today my wife and I found out that we are having a boy. This is our first child, so we are still experiencing everything for the first time, and it's a wild ride. We're very excited. I thought that since we're having a boy, I'd ask all you fathers of boys what your favorite parts of raising boys are. What do you enjoy most? On the other hand, what do you enjoy least?
