    About 6 years ago I replaced all of the running and "at anchor" lights on my pontoon. Didn't have to change anything except the actual bulbs. An LED light like an anchor light doesn't draw enough current from your battery for you to even notice. An incandescent bulb for anchor lights are usually 10 to 15 watts which at 12vdc is .9 to 1.4 amp draw. A replacement LED anchor lamp (festoon) draws .09 to .1 amps. or less than 1/10th as much. It is more feasible to put a solar charger on your main battery.

    I'm with you on all that, plus I always try to have the exact change.
    Wife is having no luck finding Lysol spray? I said, what's in Lysol??
    Alcohol!!! I have alcohol in the truck and car???
    Yes there is some other stuff in Lysol, but I've used alcohol from the get go.

    When we purchased the lake property in 1987, the Squaw had large containers along the walkway to the water planted with Ivy and other flowers. Over the years the Ivy grew out of their containers and covered the ground in the wooded areas and up the Oak trees. Couple years ago I cut the Ivy runs away from the trees, but didn't mess with the ground area. Then this year she decided she didn't like the Ivy and wanted it killed. Stuff you buy at the hardware and big box stores will not kill Ivy, it will damage it for a short period, but back it will come. Well, Aaron came over this past afternoon and sprayed the Ivy with the same thing that power companies use to control growth under their major power lines. Said it would kill a high percentage of the Ivy and he will come back and spray this Fall to finished off what survived this application. He's a good neighbor to us and helps us out a whole lot.

    Another steamy type day for us today, with a high of 91 degrees, low of 67 and humidity at 75%. Will make one trip away from the shanty this afternoon to make a garbage run to the public dump.

    I did the rest thing all day and only went outside one time yesterday and dat was to pick some Figs and eat some Blueberries right off the bushes. Heartbeat is slowly coming down to an acceptable levels, lets hope it sticks. First crop of Figs is about to peter out, but the second crop is coming along and I will be harvesting them almost up to the Fall.

    I didn't know until I saw this picture to tell you the truth.

    Cheap,
    I think you're jumping to conclusions there; the main ingredient could just as easily be attorneys or lobbyists!!!

    Worked on house more. Getting there on the living room. Had left overs, smoked pork loin, rolls, mashed taters, fer dinner.
    Fishing Saturday night was poor. Just a few dinks and a gasper-goo. Big fish just not in a feeding mood. Was fishing 38 ft down on the mo river. Water temp 88 deg. Good rain drop that temp down to 80 they might feed. Fish are laying tight to the bottom not doing a lot. Might be time to do some chumming for carp.

    Unfortunately and at great detriment to the U.S.

    You can add journalist to the same list of rats as those mentioned above.

    Mac,
    I always say. A person is smart. People are stupid.
