Printle: A Printing Word Game from Metal Type


My wife, Pat, and I have bitten the bullet and gone partial Solar Power. With grants from the Australian Federal and State Governments we can convert to solar power for about half the normal cost. With the increasing cost of electricity the conversion should pay for itself in about two years. We are currently getting solar hot water which is still scalding hot before the sun comes up in the morning. In case we have long periods of rain there is a backup off peak power for hot water. For the normal domestic power, excess power that exceeds our immediate needs is fed back into the power grid and the supplier pays us for the excess.
