Yes, it is October - but all of us up here (9,000 feet and above) are anxiously waiting to see just what our winter is going to be like this year.  We had a tremendously wet summer (and we all were so happy about this!), it was so wet that ...

Things are changing, and not always for the better.  I’ve noticed my electric bill rising (slowly, but surely) and have decided to take some affirmative action by becoming a “learner”.   I bought and installed a 1,000Watt Solar Electric System to help combat this ever increasing monthly bill.   This same system is for sale on Amazon – click HERE to go directly to the product.  Or, click HERE to go to a post I wrote talking about the various and inexpensive ways to fight back.

Appalachian Plateau to Sub Alpine Colorado

Appalachian Plateau to Sub Alpine Colorado

When one moves, as I did, not merely a matter of miles, but from one locale to another vastly different locale, there is a lot to learn. Having lived most of my life on the East coast, over half of that in Southwestern Virginia, the shift to sub … Read more...
