More Precious than Gold, more uplifting than Prozac

Here is a riddle,

in a new city, where you don't speak the language, and where there are many who want nothing more than to make a fast euro. and tear up the bathrooom..what is the most precious thing of all???

a wonderful, dependable electrician and plumber! And today, he woke me up bright and early (its a Sunday!), and fixed the boiler within an hour. he was funny he made jokes - it was great!
Though, he did tell me that this boiler is ancient -- 22 years old, if you convert boiler years to human years its like 92 years old. it's a grandfather of an appliance.
but tell that to our landlord, she couldn't give a hoot.
