Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

We have a fairly large up swing in temperatures at the start of this week. Back into the upper 90s. Hoping that doesn't throw anyone's systems off. Both got baths last night so the hair is flying even more than normal. The end of the week we go back down into the 70s. Fall is getting closer at least. Did my 75 bike ride a couple weekends ago and the start of it was beautiful but it was getting hot toward the end and that is less fun on the further distances. Have the century (100 miles) coming up hopefully soon if we don't go into a rainy round.

We are on a rural electric co-op. Ours has the highest rates in Missouri and they are talking about yet another rate hike even though they don't need the money. While supplies have gone up they simply can't get them in the first place, so it doesn't make sense to charge us more to cover costs on materials they can't get, but they are going to do it anyway. They will buy solar but they won't pay you back for overages so not much incentive to go grid tied solar here outside of personal responsibility feelings. For the three months out of the year you make good headway with solar since you can't sell back overage there's no help the other 9 months where they aren't producing that great. We are better off with wind. With the way our co-op is set up that would remove the most payment over the course of the year for us. Wind is still just so expensive to add though.

The property at the state line was a similar story. They wanted 10k per half mile and we were about 7 miles from the nearest power pole. Really looking into solar for the greenhouse. I found some grow light kits in the $90 range that come with the solar panel.

These dogs are weird!  I bought a raised dog bed for Sasha which means it was well over a year ago and no one used it!  At long last Sky has decided that it's hers ... at least when she isn't laying in the corner by the door to the north room. I would have figured she's adopt the other crate from which she could see everyone - which she can't from hers - but it still serves its purpose as a 'side table' (read collecting point for a world of 'stuff')

I'm going to be gone for a few days,  taking a short trip over to Louisiana to help drive one of our sporadic guests back to her Terlingua home.  She's getting on in years (well, she's got three years on me) and her kids were concerned about her driving all the way (about 900 miles) by herself but she's done it for years!
I have a friend who'll watch the dogs - feed / water them - while I'm gone but since I haven't been away from them for more than a few hours at a time in all the time I've had them, I'm concerned that everything will work right.

Drive carefully. Fingers crossed the dogs are fine.

I was the same way when I had to leave all mine for 4 days a few years ago. My mom house sat but there's always the fear of what if they get out and she can't get them back. I did add temporary tags to their collars with my mom's contact information so if they did get away and were found the people would hopefully call her and not us who were nowhere close to do anything about it. As long as they know the person all should go fine.
