    A cute bit. But a totally contentious interpretation of history, with sarcasm bordering on the venomous.

    "American colonists had sparked a world war..." Indeed? As if the French needed an excuse.

    Since Canada won the 2019 NBA championship, anything goes, it would seem.
    I never met a Semite I didn't like.

    Nah - We just loaned you the game for few decades...



    Best pun on the top player - Kawhi the forth - I guess there was speculation on that fellow signing for another year or two..

    What exactly does this piece "compel" you to think about my country? What is your point?
    Life's different here ... It's a whole 'nother pace.

    History may be the most prejudiced of the liberal arts. The 'Heritage' video is misleading.
    "The game of basketball as it is known today was created by Dr. James Naismith in December 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts, to condition young athletes during cold months. It consisted of peach baskets and a soccer style ball."

    True, Naismith was born in Almonte, Ontario, but the fertile land where his idea was born was the free U.S. of (God bless) America. He wouldn't be the only Canadian who came south to earn a decent wage (and warm his fingers & toes) and realize his potential. It's this land. Consider how many US citizens that won Nobel prizes were immigrants. (Few Canadians immigrate to the US; for the losers the dole there's a better deal and for the winners U$ sawbucks go further up north.)

    In 1898 Naismith became athletic director and coach at U of Kansas. "Despite coaching his final season in 1907, Naismith is still the only coach in Kansas men's basketball history with a losing record."

    Here Andrew uses some pretty cool common sense to mow an Island.

    This guy seems to "Git er done" no matter what the circumstance .

    Also it looks like he is looking to build container house #2 in the videos in his feed...

    14 minutes of watching someone mow.
    When is the 23 minute video of watching paint dry?

    YouTube is also good in a pinch.

    Came home from the camp Sunday to a 30C house and lethargic air from the vents - Even after de-thawing the A condenser and blowing it out with compressed air, there was just a "puffft" of air from the vents.

    Even though the motor starts there is a noticeable hesitation from relay click to spin, the shaft has at least a 1/4" of end play and the motor seems to have signatures of over heating.

    Disassemble of the squirrel cage followed almost exactly what buddy described here the only set back is the part is in Calgary, so we will probably not have it until Thursday or Friday - Going to be in the heat eventually so might as well get used to it. Actually we only run AC 2 or 3 weeks a year anyways...

    A start capacitor?
    If bearings are not shot,
    A universal item readily available for ten bucks.

    The shaft has a 1/4 inch end play and the fan itself only spins for a 5 count - When I used to fix my Dad's forced air furnaces in the greenhouses in the 80's those belt driven cages would spin for a good 20 seconds with a hand spin... The furnace is 12 yrs old and I did get a new cap with the motor ($12extra)

    Missing AC in +30C Meh .. Missing heat in -30C because I scrimped on the blower repair "Issue"

    Dirt bag guy released a good ditty on an solar heated shower. (This is apparently last of 8, I have not seen the first 7)

    Good idea for our place. But I bet I have to thermally limit (our) tank to 40C if we try this. Also a bit of a bleach shot as well as I can just imagine the things that will freely grow in stagnant 40C water...

    Today Slim meanders through wind turbine tribulations for his A frame.

    We may put some wind (100W or 200W maybe) at the house but certainly not put too much emphasis on it. There are cheap wind vanes with anemometers on ebay and I may set one up this Nov on what is built this fall to record if setting up any wind makes any sense to put one up in the first place.

    Nik has got to the last row of his Log cabin..

    I showed Chilo what a real log cabin looked like.. All she commented about is the Serbian Cheesecake..

    I think he is using the grinder chainsaw around the 31m mark.

    I'm going to put in some wind next year too.
    If I can limit the depth of discharge overnight, or maybe eliminate it, the life of the battery would be extended .

    I bought a $20 kindle book on windpower, wind energy for the rest of us,, by Paul Gipe.

    Some fascinating history, and I'm still boring through that.
    I have quite a bit of wind, daytime wind I could use to heat water.

    I generally have more solar power than I can use unless we are heavy into power tool usage, or doing a lot of welding.

    Which turbine,, how many blades, what controller, how to protect the turbine from the microbursts we see, rare, but they happen.

    The idea of a multi bladed turbine I find attractive. They are not as efficient as a 3 blade, but the extra blades start in lighter winds, and remember, I'm looking more for supplemental power than a wind only solution.

    The extra blades limit the upper speed of the rotor , as the speed increases, the blades get in their own way.

    I've seen turbines offered with as many as 11 blades. Five, seven, and nine, are also offered.

    When the battery reaches full charge on a solar system, the panels just sit there. Not so a wind turbine. As the load is removed from a wind turbine,, the rotor will begin to free wheel. If the wind happens to be strong at the time, the turbine can spin itself to destruction.

    Dummy loads are switched in (water or space heat), or commonly, just some big wire wound resistors.

    Heating water would be the obvious dummy load, but when the tank is heated to the max and the wind is still blowing,, what then??

    I'm considering some resistance wiring in the floor of the bathroom, my idea of the wore wound resistor.

    My ultimate solution would be a small hydro plant. I have a lake that fills to the point of overflowing during the rainy season, and enough drop to power a turbine.

    I'm not greedy, a 1kw turbine would be plenty. Remember, this is 24 -7 power, consistent, and independent of the vagaries of wind or sun.

    And this is when I need the power most, during heavy rains the sun doesn't shine, nor does the wind blow much.

    Vamos a ver!

    David Hoffman is a documentary filmmaker with some fascinating material. In this one, he shows a film he made for AT&T promoting the concepts of the cloud, smart phones, email, and online shopping. In 1993.

    Yes it is High pitched voice man (Doug) reviewing the 1985 Olds station wagon

    We had Fords - a 73, 75 and 81 LTDs The 81 became my car when the 460cu/in 1 ton cube van was not available (Yea - I know - I did not get any dates)

    I did have 2 olds wagons as Demolition derby cars in the late 80's as well

    This one popped up today, it’s a year old so he may sing a different tune now. Not sure why he says not to drink the water. I always do, no “tummy” troubles.

    He might get pickpocked less if he loses the ponytail, just my hunch. But otherwise he gives good advice,
