ABCs of Renewable Energy

Rich and I were out for a date last night. We went to a lecture on the ABC's of Renewable Energy. It was really interesting! The instructor recently installed a wind turbine (which is on the grid!) at his home. Rich went for the tour today.

Matthew is off to the farm this morning to help grandpa move the pigs around. Grandpa has a hog farm!!!

Oh... we're well into tax preparations! My dear sweet accountant husband has graciously taken on sorting through my many receipts for this biz and that biz. He loves that kind of stuff... I on the other hand.... CRINGE at the thought! I love talking with people and he loves all the detail work. It's a good combination, the two of us!

I'm sad to report that I have NOT been out for my daily walks since the weather turned cold about 1 1/2 weeks ago. I sure feel it too!

Today I shall:
GO for a nice long walk!

Very interesting topic--this is something I would look into if we were in a logical location. Good for you for going to the presentation!

Hi Toni! Thanks for the comment over on my blog. Renewable energy is going to be the coming thing in the next decade. Where we're at there isn't enough wind to make a turbine pay - I've looked into that - but photovoltaic panels on the barn roof would be promising if the price came down to a reasonable level. Great topic for a post. Have a good day!
