12/13/08 An early morning look at some of the windmills close to us. Today we drove up to Whitewater Preserve for a morning of birding and a picnic. This place was once a commercial fish farm. For a fee you could catch fish in one of their ponds and either take it home or take it in to their restraurant and they would cook it for you. The ponds are still there and have some nice big fish in them. The place is clean, has hiking trails, and lots of picnic tables around the grounds.

Here are a couple of pictures from the Whitewater Preserve.

Water Heater Maintenance

It's been a year, so I figured it's time to drain the water heater, flush out the gunk and maybe replace the anode. There was no gunk, just a small amount of black scale. The RO water system prevents "hard" water from entering the tank. The anode needed replacement.

Let's see how this Blog thing works...

With inspiration from Faye, with an "e", we are going to give this a shot. Chris Guld's article in September 2008 FMCA gave us the final push.

So...we picked a canned template and this post is mostly to see how it will look.

This photo has been re-sized for email.

On another day, when I feel braver, I'll try including a photo as it came from the camera.

This ends our first post.
