connecting common wire from furnace?

Hi,

I would like to know where to get the common wire power for the thermostat.
I have attached the furnace diagram.

I can see the that a 24V constant on the red/pink cable on the furnace picture.

Can I connect the blue wire to it to get a constant power?

Yes..... the B/C is common and the R is 24vAC.

thanks for the reply. Let me restate the question since I did not understand what the system is asking.

Does the common wire have 24V (hot) ?
"common wire (B) - provide return path for R " which mean I should be connecting my blue wire to the B/C terminal, right?

no, you were corrected base on my initial question!

my question, should have been: which terminal should i connect for the common blue wire vs saying the constant 24v?
