Solar lighting

We have three outdoor lights on our house and one lights in  interior that leads to the garage. My husband is thinking about replacing all these with solar lighting that way we could save the energy from the bigger light bulbs by having led lighting.

Marathon electric motors

It all started a few years back when we bought a swimming pool. The water in the pool never seem to warm up much to be comfortable for swimming. So my husband being he is creative as he is decided to build his own solar heater using marathon electric motors for the pool pump and also the back up pump to assist in the solar unit. It was amazing how all the pipes went underground wrapped in the special insulation came up on the side of the house where all the exposed  pipes were to collect the heat. All in all our pool is 10 degrees warmer than the neighbors and we can start swimming earlier in the year.

New Puppy

After all these years without a dog my mother in law lets my niece give her a puppy. Doesn't she know how much work a puppy is going to be? She called me up this morning and told me how the puppy kept her up all night whining and whining. Now I'm stuck with the puppy for the day so mom can get some sleep this afternoon. The good thing is at night we have a puppy pen that has a fake grass pee area that the puppy is using nicely.
