    tractors.


    I couldn't let this one slip by:

    Just a good ol' boy in the woods with his tractor (Korean I think Kiodi) Sig fire arms, steak beer along with bear and moose.


    He actually makes some good points.

    "You've got to know how much power you need"

    You also have to know when you need it. At this time,, I get up in the mornings and check battery charge,, before I turn anything on I'll have 50.0 or 49.0 volts. That is pretty close to a fully charged battery. I have a big yard light,, 34 watts of LED that runs over night, and when Shelley is not here, I leave two lamps on,, 8 watt led each (equivalent to 60 watt incandescent). The freezer runs overnight, as does the the fridge.

    During the rainy season,, we have one electric blanket going. It can get cold and damp overnight here.
    I do have to run a generator and charge the batteries once in a while,, especially if we are using a lot of tools.

    Once things get trucking,, we use a lot of power. But, as soon as the sun hits the panels,, we MAKE a lot of power.
    I make coffee for everyone early on. Lupe arrives at 8AM, has her coffee,, makes another pot usually, and then loads the washer. Her 13 YO daughter is on the payroll now, 50 cords per day. She cleans the pig pens and the chicken areas, feeds and waters. I don't think that either the chickens or pigs care,, but I do.
    When Shelley is not here,, Lupe brings her 3 YO. She knows that I'm a sucker for kids.
    Sebastian is in a pre-school, took to it like a duck to water. Lupe's 13 YO should be in school, but refuses to go

    Lupe used to hang the wash out if it was sunny,, she still does,, but she's gotten lazy too. Why not, we have the power,, and fluffed with a dryer sheet the clothes are soft.
    So,, the dryer. Chargers for the computers,, everyone's phones,, a nickel here, a dime there.

    Every other,, or third day,, she will bake a loaf of bread. The machine doesn't take much to mix,, but when it bakes,, it takes 800 watts, for a little over an hour. She will use the microwave some getting lunch ready,, depending. After lunch,, she runs the dishwasher, and generally uses a small Stinger vac to pull dust out of the corners.

    If it's cold and damp,, the new chicks get a 60 watt floodlight overnight. They grow a lot faster with this,, and I should really use an LED for all the chickens,,, because they will eat more -and that's the point. They eat and drink,, then pile into a big ball under the lamp,, wake up,, eat and drink,, through the night. I would probably get more eggs too.

    The big users are the power tools, and the welder.
    Now for this,, it might be wise to just turn on a generator. To size up to cover these possibilities,,, really doesn't make sense,, and most of this power is going to be used in your construction phase.

    I liked the video from the beginning because he made a cup of coffee using boiling water and a single cup filter/funnel. I like a cup of coffee in the afternoon,, with a stiff dollop of FDC,, and generally make a half pot. The rest gets used in the morning,, but his way of doing things makes a lot more sense.

    He's right about another thing as well: invest in a very good mppt controller. You'll harvest substantially more power from your panels, and your batteries are treated gently. Batteries you can always add,, but your inverter you are stuck with. So, that is an important decision.

    While touting his own Horn (Pun yes) Trevor lays out how the 80's music both created the 80's sound and conversely set the workings of the destruction of what is historically called "Rock"

    There is a parallel video of owner of a lonely heart, broken down track by track.

    Trevor has a voice that indicates he "may have had some overindulgence" in his life time...

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

    He is "Quite an odd bird". The fellow dresses like a 45 year old accountant in the 60's who happens to look 13 yrs old as one of his commenters stated ... (This is an audio clip, he shows his physical persona in other videos)

    I ran across him from the "Two hands and a radio" fellow from a couple weeks back. He (VORW) actually buys parallel air time on shortwave radio and has a pretty good music program for an hour - Same show broadcasts Thursday, Saturday and Sundays. He also broadcasts his ramblings as in this broadcast as well.

    He stumbled upon YouTube in his early teens and became a minor YouTube celebrity as "RevriewBrah"

    Recently his music show was torpedoed on all of his social media channels because of music copyright. I am assuming that the radio stations have some blanket cover for copyright

    He uses the attacks upon him for folly some times witch gives me a chuckle.

    His main Schick is reviews of fast food which seems to give him a reasonable income. (Assumed)

    Listening to him you can hear how he has been shit kicked in the past for how he is, but it seems to have grown quite a thick skin on him...


    He once made a statement "My disappoint is immeasurable and my day is ruined " which has percolated up to a B grade meme...

    This is Retro Ontario

    Retro ontario is a fellow who buys up old VHS tapes from thrift stores and yard sales and posts them to this channel - Ads, short clips, news intros etc.

    Some of my fovorites were Irv Weinstein from Eywitness news 7 in Buffalo. Buffalo always had a "3 alarm blaze in Tonawanda tonight" ... Also Canadian news channels in Toronto and Hamilton and area.

    This clip is from an ad for Smarties which is what the M&Ms were based off of - This ad compain spanned my childhood well in to the mid 90's in different forms and was recently revived.

    Retro has a couple thousand clips of these old TV bits.

    I discovered mashups yesterday and subscribed to Bill McLintock’s channel since he’s the King of Mashups. He’s a soft spoken music teacher, and has the musical talent of a seasoned producer. The mashups range from mundane to hilarious to poignantly serious, bur rarely disappoint. Here he explains to his 50,000 subscribers how he does them.

    I took a break yesterday from Youtube Sunday doing the smoker at the trailer Sunday.

    Going on Jonh's mash up this is a Zep Ozzy mash up that almost seems to be made for each other. Whole lot of love and War pigs.

    Back a couple years back when I was commuting for an hour each way the Jurassic rock channel (Q107 toronto) did one every Monday at 5:30 and there were some gems. Like Michael Jackson and metallica that just complimented each other in so many ways.

    That's a good one. I like the Soul Metal that Bill McClintock produces.
