it's all about the cow...

A bit nipply overnight.  Did a major supply run to Alpine today...refrigerant, food, particulars for the rest of the greenhouse roofing, solar water heater insulation, tools for the Ural, parts for some new solar ovens, and a bale of hay for Benita.  Normally she doesn't care for coastal, but she seemed to take to it this afternoon - probably has a little more flavor than what is growing out here this time of year.  Trying to lure her into wintering over at TFL. Last year she left the day before Thanksgiving and was gone for over two months.  48,70,23,0,B

those cow patties make great fertilizer, methane gas if one were inclined to collect enough, or fuel for a camp fire in the fire pit-
course, I know you know all of this

next up a possible explanation for the Marfa lights....

I will float this idea out there in the hope that John as a logical choice might pick this idea up and take a look see in a spare moment. The Marfa lights are a well known phenomenon, and there is a similar one in Australia, the Min Min lights, with very similar geography to Marfa.
This is not a news flash, similar explanations have been proposed here in Texas, but this idea is relatively understandable, based on science, and can be proved.
John would you be willing to have a go at it?

Concerning Benita, old habbits are hard to break. But, I do hope she will stay there with you for the winter.

Hope she stays. It must worrry you when she's gone for so long considering her age.

Depends on where she goes. Maybe she has a backup Sugar Daddy.
