FF do you use those plastic spacers or just a pencil with eraser behind the ear? I did one just by eye & fingertips but it took forever because I kept thinking there were problems that weren't there. Any way your doing good my friend, if I were to try that now it would have to be a closet, my knees wouldn't hold up for much more. :oops:

I like the rhythm but I don't wanna feel. HA! Lookin' good Ffred. Tough on the knees & back, but it makes for a nice floor.

Greg... welcome home! Love to hear of the road trips. It's been a tough winter for solar power but looking like a few good days this week. Still darn cold. 8* this morning. They say next week it should warm up. If you call 32 days & 15 nights warm. We should have known a long cold winter was coming when last August was so darn chilly.

Some trivia for those enjoying the cold:

Statistically on average the coldest day of the year comes one full month after the shortest daylight day of the year (which is December 21st). That makes January 21st the most likely day to be the coldest day of the year.

Also, statistcally on average the hottest day of the year comes one full month after the longest daylight day of the year (which is June 21st). That makes July 21st the most likely day to be the hottest day of the year.

And this is due to the heat retention of the Earth lagging vs length of daylight heating right??

Another interesting thing is that the shortest day won't have the latest sunrise and earliest sunset.. Also the longest day won't have the earliest sunrise and latest sunset either.. :? :lol:

The earth is actually closest to the sun during our winters. The cold has to do with the axis of the earth being pointed away from the sun 23.5 degrees in the norther hemisphere during winter. Less concentrated sunlight reaching the northern hemisphere in winter. During the summer we point 23.5 Degrees toward the sun. More concentrated sunlight heat the norther hemisphere.
