living on a rock...














Found almost half of the hole today.  I forgot how much fun this is (NOT).  At least it wasn't 110° all day.  Really wasn't too awful - took my time to get this far - 4 1/2 hours.

My friend Ron Dame sent me this link today.  www.suncalc.net  Brilliant site - shows the sun's angle for any location...for all seasons using google maps.

Kale with my supper tonight.  54,64,33,0,C

did I miss a post? did the harbor freight solar panels give out? are you going to still use them in some way? sorry if you already touched on this.

took me 6 tries to get a word verification my blind old butt could decipher!

Rat...no - my harbor freight panels are still chugging along. This is about a new project:

Speaking of GoogleMaps now that they have updated it can you see Goldies pyramid?

Rock is right. Or maybe million-year hard packed sediment. Amazing that anything could grow on/in that. But as we have seen, when rain comes, the place greens right up. Major magic.
