Still cool here too. Warm in the sun, cool in the shade.

The sensor I inserted into a moist soil container did it's job - watering at 11am cancelled.



Now I'm interested seeing if the scheduled 3pm watering of the baskets will also be negated.

There are people who might say you have such an interesting time and it doesn't take much to entertain you.

Entertain? Hmmm. I've got the time now to try and work out the "kinks" of self-running irrigation, and I'm just posting a bit out of boredom and trying to keep this thread going too.

That said, this sort of irrigation planning and testing can be a little stressful trying to get everything to run smoothly, and as planned.

I'll be away two weeks in July and when I get back, if all the plants are dead, well, that won't be any fun. And the boss will be pissed!

You know I was just teasing or at least you should.

2 weeks in July, you need to get it right. Even up there I bet July gets dry.

Yes, of course. Although I'm sure the summer will still be hot, they've predicted a normal, to slightly cooler that normal, wetter summer.

I don't think I would ever travel in July for more than a few days as that one of two months I eat real, vine ripened tomatoes. I usually eat them 2-3 times a day until I get my fill of them. The rest of the year I only buy the plastic ones at the grocery on rare occasions.

I need to get off my butt and clean the front gutter before the rain comes. I will measure it for the downspout upgrade at the same time.

No choice as this was planned last year and it's the best time of year for travel in that area. You see, they get early and late winters, cold springs (snow in May this year) and it's generally flat, non interesting terrain. Until, that is, you get near the western border, and the Rockies.

I think the relatives are trying to tempt us to move out there. They made the move out to that western province, and I think want friends and relatives to uproot, leave family behind so they can surround themselves with friends and relatives from the other province.

Ya - NO! Moving out there isn't going to happen, not in a million years. Even if it's a little cheaper to live out there. The government has to make things cheaper. Why else would anyone in their right mind want to move out to the middle of nowhere?

Rant over.

Sounds like you don't care for the western province. I would not want to move to SE KY either so I do understand.

Killed the little maple trees in in the gutter, about 1.5 gallons of crap from a 2 foot section near the downspout. That all got there since last August. I should be ready for the rain.

My turn to rant. Local tire store ran an AC check special for 29.95. I called to find out how much extra for any freon only to learn an AC service starts at 129.00. All they do for 29 is check the output temp. I have my own thermometer. I am about to buy a set of manifold gages and learn AC charging.

BC would be nice. But not Alta. I'd have to down-size a bit to afford the BC real estate, but we'd not need as much room as we have here. We've also got no relatives that far west, other than the one's whining about how great it is in Alta. And of course, my kids are just starting out here, so we probably keeping put.

We should downsize but I doubt we will. We are comfortable and hate the moving.

You want to be close to the kids when they start making grandchildren, your chance to spoil a kid and send it home.

Exactly!!

Not that I'll do any of this, but when my kids were younger, they stayed over at their grandfather's house the odd time for fun. They ate pizza, burgers, and even had cookies for breakfast.

Although (not sure if I posted this before), I can't wait to get in the kid's first new cars. I'm going to have a can of coke to shake and spray, and some Cheetos to grind into the carpets. Getting them back!

Yep. Paybacks are fun.

Guess I need to get off my duff and do something.

Going to order prescription progressive sunglass lenses and have them installed in existing frames. I currently wear another set of progressive "transitionals" that darken when out in the sunlight, but they don't work well in the car when you need dark lenses - especially early morning and late afternoon/evening. So I'm breaking down, and getting prescription sunglasses for the car.

The ""transitionals"" have never worked well for me. I have bifocal, this last pair not working so well, computer glasses and sunglasses. The fixed focal point computer glasses was the best money I ever spent. No more perching on the end of the nose to read the screen.

I think I am going back and get a single distant lens and ditch the bifocals altogether.

It took a while, but for everyday life things, traditionals are good for me.

For the computer screen, I didn't like them, so I got +2 reading glasses. Those reading glasses went thru hell and replaced, lost and scratched (because they were only $20 per pair), so I just decided to stick it out using transitionals, and while still not the greatest for computer screens, I've gotten used to them.

Yesterdays storms turned out to be a lot hype. One short moderately heavy rain. We are an 80-90% probability for the next few days.

I could never just use reading glasses. My eyesight is way too bad.

You did mention you get a lot of rain where you are. We've had a lot of rain too, but it looks like we get a break from the rain until Monday. I don't think I need an irrigation system.

Near or far sighted?

Ah, I'm farsighted so I don't know if or how progressives would work for someone nearsighted. I'm not in the optical business - just a customer. My father was in the business - but not retail.

I thought were were talking about lens tinting, (transitionals).

The progressive bifocals suck for me. I always preferred the noline with a clear distinction between near and far. Smaller lens are now in style and they don't have as much room to work with.
