Some might consider it an eye sore sitting up here so I may camouflage it with several shades of paint to make it look like 9 Points. ;) Then again I've been wanting to build a pyramid so that would make it pretty easy to make one to cover it.That should make a hell of a catchment system!
On another note I talked to John Wells at the Grub Shack yesterday and he said the Grub Shack is going to be getting free WiFi for their customers. You can see his blog by looking to the right of this page and going to The Field Lab.
And still on another note, my neighbor Robert just stopped by and told me they just came back from Alpine and had to get the radar used on the way up there. He said they made them get out of the pickup and drove the van around it. He said it took about 5 or 6 minutes before they could go on. I bet this will be real interesting during the Chili Cook off! Now... before when Frann and I were coming back from Alpine there was no place big enough for that van to circle vehicles so I'd bet they were xraying as people drove through? If so perhaps raising hell on several blogs got someone's attention and they are now doing it right?
BTW I ran across the below video while looking for Charcoal as fertilizer. I'm sure the guys will enjoy it a lot better than the gals (Would probably take a guy to understand why I say that), but there is good info on there for all. Especially some of their other videos about solar cooking and so on.
I'd seen a program on TV years ago where some ancient Indians along the Amazon had used charcoal and pottery shards to make some of the most fertile soil in the world. They say it is still that way after centuries. I could see the charcoal helping, but couldn't figure out what part the pottery shards played. A while back Just Me told me to get a piece of ceramic to put in a tobacco bag to keep it just at the right moisture. It dawned on me then that the Indians evidently used the pottery shards to capture water and keep it from sinking out of reach of the plants they were growing. See link to video below.
And this Just in: More Texas BS
Oh Yeah.... And I waited around here all day for Paul the deputy to show up about the ID Theft case and he never made it.
