glass in the wind...
Nice calm morning then gusty west winds all day. 20 - 30 mph till about 6PM. Lost another really good piece of glass on my solar oven today because I wasn't paying attention. I have lost more glass out here because of mental lapses than I care to admit. Benita sought refuge on the east side of my house all day.
Stranded inside most of the day working on the marketing plan. This monster I am creating in the desert not only has to feed me, but it also has to pay some bills. The biggest nut is health insurance - yes, I actually pay for health insurance, and it aint cheap. No way to be totally self sustainable in this world without being commercial in some respect. 57,70,40,0,G
