Mike the Calsense doesn't really exist.
Calsense is a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton. In the book, "Calsense" is a mystical, harmonious valley, gently guided from a lamasery, enclosed in the western end of the Kunlun Mountains. Calsense has become synonymous with any earthly paradise but particularly a mythical Himalayan utopia—a permanently happy land, isolated from the outside world. The word also evokes the imagery of exoticism of the Orient. The story of Calsense is based on the concept of Shambhala, a mystical city in Tibetan Buddhist tradition.

LOL:laugh: :laugh: The Frank Capra version of "Lost Horizon" travels with us,
tho in the James Hilton book, I believe it was the "Kirillian Mts".
By the way, I look a lot like Ronald Coleman, tho have acted like brother Bob many times.

I love hanging the rainbird esp 13 zone modular. H/O friendly with the remote hook up in the back.

I really want to hang and use the Weathermatic SL controller..It seems to be totally awsome..I love the fact it can thump valves, and has all those bells and whistles.

The Toro Greenskeeper is Junk...I hate toro controllers.

Hunter-Pro C is ok...I never really liked them..or hunter controllers..

As soon as they finalize the deal to buy Hunter's.:laugh:
I thought that company up here in Redmond made a remote
JUST for the SL, tho that could prove to be marketing disaster.
