    Today is a new one. Toshiba 65" LED TV with a LED boot problem.

    They threw one out at work where the LEDs do not start but the TV Boots (You can see the display with a flash light)

    Chilo wants it sent south so I have to see if I can meander through the board or buy a new one (Power board) for $90

    The thing is Huge - But shipping buddy says $130 gets it down there..

    I don't know when I had seen that Wolters World video, but I did - And I _think_ it was released just after, with him being there just before, the troubles.

    Social blade

    Man - Estimated yearly earnings of 14K to 230K - Dart at the wall making that $ 115K ... Damn that must be nice....

    FYI for solar hot water- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legionnaires%27_disease

    " The bacteria grow best at warm temperatures[4] and thrive at water temperatures between 25 and 45 °C (77 and 113 °F), with an optimum temperature of 35 °C (95 °F).[21] Temperatures above 60 °C (140 °F) kill the bacteria.[22] Sources where temperatures allow the bacteria to thrive include hot water tanks, cooling towers, and evaporative condensers of large air conditioning systems, such as those commonly found in hotels and large office buildings.[23] "

    Exactly ... Up here they now mandate 140F water heaters with a mix down for the outlet water (We have it set at 120F)

    So in the end I would say shot bearings.

    The new motor had almost zero end play (like 2 or 3 thou) and spun sooooo smooth... and for about 20 seconds when hand spun.

    Air movement is at least 4x of what it was. The proof comes this aft when I get home from work @ 30C / 37 with the humidex.

    My search for place up in da nort whit da moose and da bears and da beavers hit a "ping" this week with 5 acres up on Manitoulin island. It is only an 8 hour drive.

    This fellow is an odd bird

    He is "The Voice of the report of the week"


    He has had a YouTube gig since he was in his Mid Teens - He is also a bit of a shortwave hobbyist and actually buys an hour of shortwave radio time every week (On a few transmitters)


    The radio show is oddly good and has a good eclectic span of music with context for each song - Thursday evenings is when it broadcasts @ 6 8 and 9 PM est. He used to repost the broadcast to sound cloud and the like but got hit for copyright infringement so only the shortwave broadcast has music. his podcasts/youtube/soundcloud versions are talk related which is kinda like a cross of Art Bell, a financial analyst and occult hobbyist :-)


    But the majority of his earnings seems to come from food review videos for fast food. This is one of those.

    Last time I looked at social blade they calculated that he was pulling in something like 50K/yr

    Neat little solar tracker for panels here.

    Not sure if it will be required for our place down south, but for up north for sure. With a 7AM sunrise / 6PM Sunset in Sept Oct every min of charge counts.

    First experimantal set up will be started the end of this month with 2 x 240W panels with a Grid Tie inverter. Then as winter comes will probably see if I can isolate something to solar only like my computer room or similar.

    Looks like the 5 acres I mentioned previous is sold (or at least counter offer) there is another that came up but it is straddled by the Niagara escarpment (like a 100 foot sheer face of granite) but the ability to build a cabin is in question.

    Little change in sun angle here because we are so close to equator.

    I oriented the house / bodega so I get best
    sun angle in December (sun north) . I've always felt that trackers were:
    1. Cost of panels is such now that if you shop carefully, you can simply buy more panels.
    2. There is always going to be an added element of complexity, which increases as the panel count goes up.
    I have 18 now and would like to get another half dozen.
    3. Eventually you will have a wind issue,, another Mitch, justvwhen you need the panels the most.

    Still, gotta say, the guy does good work building thatvtracker. I am so jealous of his beautiful dimensional lumber. Sinsa in MGA has some but it's pricey.

    I liked his concrete form too, have to remember that.

    I had forgotten about this type of culvert water tank until it popped into my head for some reason this AM.

    This would be really good for Niclandia. I have seen them used, but not a place selling them yet.

    Those things are all over Tucson, used to collect monsoon water and irrigate with it.

    Water is very high in Tucson.

    This is Lonnie

    He lives up in Alaska.

    Over the winter I watched a lot of his bushcraft videos.

    He has about 6 years of videos of how to live up in Alaska.

    Cool little stove he built here last winter..



    If you view the 7 year span you could assume he is a cultivator of "Herbs" way up there....

    Missed the 27th on the 27th

    Bunch of work at the camp - 40 Nacotomal, Chilli, smoked pork butt, installed power awning control and a USB charger wired into the wall just beside the awning switch.

    But anyways here is the bit from Kris (Earth bag man) and his turbine. Cool set up with the 4 jets - 2 of them controlled remotely as demand increases...

    And for Sunday the 28th -

    Westen gets the Fummins on the road.

    The (better) quality of a Ford chassis with the best midsized diesels would be such an awesome combination.
