A/C dripping water

Just noticed it this morning at 10am. I usually turn off the A/C in the mornings around 7am. Assume the drain pipe is clogged but the other end is ok. Or is there a pan inside that may have rusted...

They probably weigh over 300 pounds so you would need an engine crane. $18,000 for a 9 year old 100,000 mile pickup? That's crazy.

Is old fertilizer still good?

I have 2 open bags of Scotts fertilizer and a sealed box of tree or shrub fertilizer spikes. They must be 20 if not 30 years old. Still usable?

What happened to Japanese beetles?

I remember 30 years ago they were everywhere here in the mid-Atlantic area. I don't think I've seen one in 10 years now.

You're right, not the thermocouple per say but the thermistor is bad. Soldered in a temporary bypass until I get a new pilot assembly.
