2016 was a good year

Just calculated that even with our mini-splits, we generated 84% of out electrical use with our solar panels in 2016. And that is in Maine folks.

Escape from Winter

For the first time, we took a week and escaped the Maine winter.  Of course, we would choose an El Nino year with little snow and moderate temps.  Doesn't matter - we had a great time in Naples, FL with friends.  Here are some shots of the week.

2015 - Year in Review

Reflecting on 2015

It seems that I just never find the time or have the need to post here anymore.  But, I do believe reflections on 2015 are in order.

The house still is performing wonderfully and since the addition of the mini-split systems, we are comfortable summer and winter.  We talk about replacing the front windows, but otherwise have not thoughts on any changes.

We lost Milos in September at nearly 11 years.  He is reeally missed, but we are happy with just the girl.  I have continued to work with her in Performance events.  You can follow her progress on my website.

Did not do much travelling - spent some time with great friends in Burlington, VT in the Fall.  It is a nice city to visit, and there is nothing like old-friends to make any trip a success.

Everyone remains healthy which is the best gift of all.

Long cold winter

It has been a long winter - or I am just getting older and they seem longer.  Today we have a high of about 13 degrees with very strong winds.  Doesn't deter the dogs though - guess it is good we have Leos.
