    They're everywhere, they're everywhere!!!

    People say I'm getting crankier as I get older. That's not it. I just find I enjoy annoying people a lot more now. Especially younger people!!!

    But my real reason for bringing this up is the battery. That battery had been working since the fan was installed in late 1991! I know I've never replaced it because I don't remember ever encountering such a battery.
    Whoops! I owe the internet an apology! I lied. Yesterday I happened to recall the purchase of that fan and where I bought it, and it was 2003, NOT 1991. But still, 16 years that battery lasted!

    When I started this thread I was remembering the installation of a fan in a different room.

    Now for the real oddity. The other day, after turning on the wall switch and learning neither the light nor the fan would work, I just left the wall switch ON. Well yesterday when I first came downstairs, to my surprise the fan was working (slowest speed) . Why would that be?
