Solar power on a shoestring

Solar power on a shoestring

This is our first attempt at a small scale solar power system.

We can use this to power things like our computers, lights, the TV, and the stereo. You can also use this as a car battery charger, if your car battery dies and the electricity’s out.

Happy Christmas!

Rattlesnake, 9/9/08

We didn’t see any in August, which is supposed to be when they’re really active.

Even rattlesnakes get thirsty!

Thirsty Fellow!

This guy showed up on our porch today. Apparently he was thirsty, ’cause he didn’t move when we started squirting water at him.

Another, bigger rattlesnake’s been about the property, too. We’re the only good source of food for them, now that the McMansion is nearly complete.
