Happy Earth Day to everyone! This past weekend, while at the sailboat show, I bought a book and chatted with the author of “Sustainable Sailing,” a very nice man named Dieter Loibner. We had a nice chat about solar systems, since we love ours. When we buy our cruising sailboat, we plan to outfit it with solar panels and a windmill (if we can locate a nice quiet model, that is).
In the meantime, now that we have had our solar panels for 1-2 years, Joe and I do not have to deal with the high price of electricity any more. The summer before we went solar, we had a $800 bill one month. Yikes! Now we get paid for the extra power we sell back to the electric company.
One last topic before I go…. we have been having crop circles in the tall grass around the house and ranch. It is a circular pattern some of the time. Anyone care to guess who did it?
I will upload the picture of the culprit. I finally solved the mystery yesterday.
Enjoy your day!! Carla
