Since the dawn of mankind, we’ve been kinda obsessed with apples. For tens of thousands of years apples have been a large part of our diets and our cultures. Blamed for the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, credited as the source of immortality by the Norse Gods, reproved as the cause of the Trojan war, and an all around great way to get drunk in America since the settlement of Jamestown; as it turns out, apples and people go together like, well, apple butter and smearcase for instance.
Apples, A Brief History
Would a rose by any other name smell as sweet? Yeah, if that name were Apple Pie. Apples are a member of the rose family. DNA analysis shows that apples originated in the mountains of Kazakhstan, where the great ancestor of today’s domesticated apple still grows. How we went from that sour, practically inedible apple to the shiny Red Delicious we know so well is a long history of finely tuned cultivation and cultural impact. Apples express extreme heterozygosity, in short, the apples grown from a seedling won't be anything like its parents. Reproducing a particular variety of apple requires a process called grafting.

Why Service Your Furnace?
Furnace malfunctions can be costly and dangerous. Regularly servicing your furnace will help you avoid getting blindsided by exorbitant repair costs, or ending up without heat when you need it most. Regular service will also ensure that your heating system is running as efficiently as possible, so you know you're getting the most out of that heating bill you have to pay every month. If you find yourself sad about the cost of your annual furnace maintenance, remember that you’re going to much more upset if you have to pay for emergency service in the middle of winter.
Remember to always contact your gas provider IMMEDIATELY if you smell gas and make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are working.
