  3. people that post stuff for sale, and don't respond
  4. So, some previous posts suggest. Your friends jump off a cliff, they die, I should do the same? And as far as classifying an individual who enters ANY country, as an illegal, what else would you suggest to call that undocumented, illegally entered person?
  5. The celebration of life for Susannah Kelly will be on Monday, July 16, at 1pm at the Funky Finn event center. It is located just past Adelita’s restaurant to the next corner and turn left. Anyone is welcome to share stories or memories after the brief service conducted by the Canadian Legion. Snacks and refreshments will be served. Her son, Raj Wakhale, will be there. Please come and celebrate a life well lived! Gracias,
  6. Here's a translation: The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) desisted from relying on the General Distribution Provisions by the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE), so it will now be easier for homes in Mexico to generate their own electricity. On April 25, 2017, the CFE filed a request for protection in which it argued that its income could be affected by the new provisions established by the CRE. However, he announced that he gave up on this one. In an interview with El Financiero, Victor Ramirez, executive director of the National Solar Energy Association (Anes) said that although the struggle was long, the CFE, thanks to the impetus from legislators of all parties and the CRE, resigned the lawsuit, giving certainty to the market. "Now anyone can install panels on their roofs, sell the energy to CFE and CFE is obliged to buy the energy as long as the specifications indicated in the interconnection manual are met," he said. Ramirez said that today, Anes associates have three interconnection contracts through the total sale scheme: two in Chihuahua and one in the state of Oaxaca. "There are some projects that are beginning to be built, both in terms of total sales and turnover," he added. After CFE's protection, investments for distributed generation of 200 million dollars were halted. The executive dismissed the CFE's decision as a consequence of the political transition. "Legal proceedings are not automatic. Today we see it but surely the withdrawal came last week or last week," he said. With the publication of the General Provisions of Distributed Generation, which specify the new contract models that users can use for the production of solar energy in photovoltaic panel installations below 500 megawatts, the Anes expected annual growth to reach 19 thousand megawatts in 2030.
  7. Perhaps, a photo, with relevant info highlighted, maybe helpful. I have solar, and I see NO area that explains my generation, and what I have used. Thanks
  8. Street side recycle. Put it out, someone will pick it up and will use it
  9. You may want to explore alternatives, that are not invasive, some are accomplished at home, but you should check with a doctor.

  11. I would stay away from Carmax, they made a very low offer, I sold the truck, thru craigslist for 2.5 times more than they offered. You should be able to list in your city of choice, possibly even sold when you get there.
  12. Because there is not a slot big enough to put them in the the phone?
  13. Well, silicone grease is good for temps to 500 F, wax rings maybe 120 F.

  16. What I've been told by a couple different people, is MOST labs, lakeside, are able to test water samples, I have no personnel experience with this. Makes sense, if they are able to accomplish required lab testing,as per a doctors orders, they should be able to give an analysis of water. I am pursuing a different avenue, I have a contact, in the bottled water selling business, and his explanation of the required mandated treating,testing and samples, is far greater and in depth, than I would ever need, so I will deliver my sample to him, and he will allow it to go forward, for testing in Guad, on my dime. results in a week or so. I am in Riberas, as well, if its nasty, nasty, I'll let you know.

  18. If I may interject some comments. The "W" contained within , is a reference to a WINTER weight viscosity index, viscosity is the ability to pour, warm, or cold, the oil,at the lower index number, SHOULD perform as that lower number, when cold, and when warm, should perform at the higher number, when heated. In YOUR case you stated" 5W30 engine oil, from the provided info, and deciphering the "code", the following is derived: when cold, behaves as 5 weight oil, very easy to pour, designated as for use in "Winter", the "W", and reaching operating temp, behaves as a 30W, oil, from memory, 5W oil is MORE pourable at cold temps, whereas 30W, is veeeeery sllllooooow to pppppppooooouuuurrrrr.5w oil will zip down the pipe, 30w, will be a long time to empty the container.With a "W" in the mix, that designates for "winter use", No "W", normal use, ie... everyday driving. Take your pick.

  21. This is in response to jausten09, and Go Solar. I started a new topic because this doesn't directly relate to the "thinking-about-solar" thread, but is relevant. 2 years ago we had a ultrasol water heater installed. A couple weeks ago, I noticed water dripping from the roof drain, upon further inspection, the tube seals were leaking. I hired a guy to fix the leaks, my first mistake, he used silicone, it leaked worse after the repairs. I chose to repair myself. Removing 20 tubes, glued in with silicone is not a fun job, I broke several tubes in the process. After cleaning and inspecting the tubes, I noticed what appeared to be scale build up on the glass, in the area of the seal, and a score line, from the seal area to the end of the tube.After soaking the area in CLR overnight, scraping with a knife, this is NOT a scale build up, the area beneath the seal is etched and the score line is exactly that, a scratch line. An internet search, suggest these tubes are SUPPOSED to be borosilicate glass, a low iron and very hard, durable glass, like pyrex ware dishes and lab beakers. I reassembled the tubes, using new seals, and a bit of silicone grease, no leaks thus far. See the attached photo Now the guessing begins. My theory at this point, is that the heated water, in combination with the minerals, and the relative water stagnation in this area, has allowed the water to remain in contact with the tube, under the seal, for an extended amount of time, causing the etching. When the tube was removed the first time and the guy used silicone, the seals were cut by the minerals, silicone was applied and the majority of the silicone ended up at the END of the tube, not in the area of the seals, hence the improved leaking. I have since then entered the rabbit hole of water treatment, attempting to learn the best, most cost effective method to reduce the mineral content of the water. To begin I installed a whole house water filter, and ordered a TDS meter, we do have a water softener in use and that helps with reducing minerals, but evidently, not enough. In closing I feel that while the PH factor may not be a major player in jausten09's issue, mineral content IS a player and combined with a high PH, indicating an acidic condition, the elevated temperatures of the water. are all contributing.
  22. I am following this with a lot of hope and interest, however I live in Riberas, and according to the web site, we are not in the sight picture.I'm sure that, should they expand coverage to the east, there would be more interest.
