Here it is finally, the last blog post for this here blog. It's been coming for a while really, and it feels like a good time to close the story arc, at least here. I'll still be around on Facebook although I don't post much there either. I guess my heart's just not that into it anymore. My creative energies are going more toward work, which is a good thing. I found a website copying program that allowed me to download my entire blog to my hard drive. So now if the blog disappears (I'm not planning to delete it just yet) I'll still be able to have it as a keepsake. I want to thank everyone who participated over the last 6 and a half years (the longest thing I've stuck to so far save Serge) as it really wouldn't have been the same without you. If for nothing else, I've made some cool connections and ended up with a really neat scrapbook of sorts. I am very grateful for that. Enough! This is a blog post so let's get to it. First up, Serge's little project:
Serge made a solar panel out of beer cans, and the darn thing really works! In direct sunlight, the air coming out at the top reaches 200 degrees F! Unfortunately, we don't get very much sun in the winter when the device would be most useful. Air comes in at the bottom and rises through the cans and comes out at the top. Cool huh?
Here's the Canadian news with another example of why we scratch our heads over the bitter acrimony in Washington over taxes. So we see in Quebec (the most highly taxed district in North America), every dollar earned above $127,021 is taxed at 48.2% whereas the top tax rate in the US happens after income of $380,034 and is taxed at 43.2%. Denmark looks frightening though don't you think?
I wouldn't be right to end things without our favorite pooch now would it? He's all curled up in bed after a hard day of running in the park and begging for treats. Good night sweet Georgie.
Love to all and have a wonderful life! XOXOXOXOXOXO
