We are having solar panels installed today! Right now our solar guy is in my room hooking up the entire system to the house – and once he is done, we have power. Well actually that just happened! Which is super crazy – the truck was here yesterday, and now we have electricity without the… Read More Solar Powered!
These last couple of years I have been experimenting with my own health. I have been sickly most of my life – a real weakling, but never so seriously ill that it warranted massive medical attention.

How our values have changed! Our wedding was a huge deal with all the trimmings, morning suit, silk dress (tailor made), star chef, party in… Read More 10 Years of Marriage – How Things Change
