Love my solar panels…

Dave Borlace highlighted some current data from IRENA,  International Renewable Energy Agency, tracking the renewable power generation costs from the last decade. The costs continue to drop steadily.

We decided to install solar panels in the summer of 2017 and I’m so grateful we did. They’ve been humming along, quietly producing electricity for us (and our neighbours when we create more than we need) for nearly three years.

A friend asked me a couple of weeks ago, if I needed to do any maintenance on them, and if they had caused me any difficulty in repairs or other maintenance. No. I wouldn’t even notice I had them, except that I love to look at them.

Thanks to Viridian Energy Cooperative, for their excellent guidance and installation work.




OK, sit.

Finding a few treats in my pocket at the end of a training session makes me feel like when you are leaving a foreign country,

and you still have a few coins in your pocket, so you have to spend them at the airport or they will linger forever in your sock drawer.

Whew! Made it!

Mazeru’s Kenya a.k.a. Kaylah the Magnificent meets her fifteenth year today. She woke up saucy, relished her breakfast, and after taking a brisk walk around the block in the January mist, is now comfortably snoozing on the couch.

Thanks for sharing your life with me, Miss Kaylah. I love you. Schipperke, T. Rolf-002
