thanks blanket, indy winner,solar question, duct tape, bb


here is a picture of a quilt that was made by a volunteer
apparently volunteers from across the us make and donate
quilts to give to those of us who are involved in the research
study the adni-2 study

the quilter for mine is from laguna beach california
thanks for the good quilting and for the support

indy winner doug wheldon wore a loco for the
alzhiemers assoication on his jacket to show his support
for alzheimers education and research

his mom was diagnosed with early onset alzheimers at
55 years old
he has made alzheimers one of his focuses for educating
people about this terrible disease

a facebook friend wanted to know if you could store electricity
somewhere to use if the electricity goes off

you can store your electric production in large storage batteries
which are expensive and have to be replaced occasionally
with the batteries you pull electricity from them when its needed

most people opt to use the power lines as their storage battery as
the electric companies are required by law to allow you to do this
this saves on the cost of the total system however if the electricity
goes off then the system is automatically shut off to prevent
electricity being sent through the lines which can electrocute a
worker working on the damaged lines

basically im like you that dont have solar when the electricity is
off its off even if its sunny

when you read about people who are totally off the grid that
means they are using batteries only to store their power and are
usually not hooked to the grid

use it to repair panty hose
use it to make a clothes line while camping
use it to repair a watch band (did it once but when my
wife she discovered it had to buy a new band)\

use it to repair work gloves, work boots, hiking boots
(my wife she used some to repair her hiking boots once
while in big bend park as the nearest shoe store was
hundreds of miles a way
recently used it to hold my work boots sole in place as
the sole came off while in the middle of a construction

keep that roll of duct tape around

heat let that one slip away didnt they
mavs stole one
dirks finger didnt slow him down on that last play
did it

sunday game is in dallas
heat could be in trouble now

  1. Myth Busters even built a bridge with duct tape. They also held together a car with the stuff. I love that stuff.

  2. Jim and I saw a car mirror yesterday that was hanging down after being hit, they had it duct taped to the car...thought of you.
