    I love goat yoga! It's delicious!

    ....oh, wait...I was thinking of goat YOGURT....

    Is that where you're down on all fours and a little goat jumps on your back? I've seen that, I think they showcased some place up in Cave Creek that has it. What WILL they think of next.

    I am not sure if it is cooking and cleaning these days as my wife and daughters hate both of them. Maybe the latest fashion with bright light and they be involved but other than that, their level of interest is zero.

    Funny thing is I meet my wife when she was the PM on an ICT roll out Project I was on.

    Muhahahahah...... this is why WAF have us...... why do it when you can own a boy to do it for her?

    add a food channel or stretching dog yoga class and we would be swamped with diversity....

    I see the difference as more fundamental. Toys and tools.

    We boys are more likely to play with toys. Even when it's a tool, I don't need a plasma cutter, but come on, if I had one I'd be coming up with things to cut just to play with it. Most females I know even technical astute and wrench monkey capable are only interested in a tool if solves a problem they have, not because it's cool and they want to play with it.

    I started on HA because I could and it was a fun hobby to tinker with. I'm sure many of us started that way, what 1st world problem can I create and solve

    I think I've dated myself with the MCP Tron reference... and I thought some of you guys were old timers.

Like others have said, our wives love it when HA works and makes their lives easier and complain when it doesn't, but that's the extent of their involvement.

I spent about an hour with her via phone and Teamviewer last year going through the basics of setup. She purchased HomeSeer software and runs it under Windows on an Intel NUC. She is an MCP and manages IT for a mid sized corporation. We have exchanged a half dozen or so emails since regarding things she has read on this forum, though she is reluctant to participate.

    I really appreciate her perspective. She completely understands how the system works and has never complained about how to structure an Event, instead learning it as a new language and speaking it.
    Tell her to join in, we'd love to have her perspective! Nothing to fear here, we don't bite. OK, we might occasionally check out her ASCII...

    If we scare up someone in Payson that at least has Insteon knowledge, let me know. I think I got HS down pretty good, but the Insteon is giving me fits.

    That is a good question. Not that I know of. In fact Home Automation in general seems to be "esoteric knowledge," at least to the local Realtors.
