Here I am back again with a couple of things I meant to say before.
The first is just a funny coincidence - my blood pressure at my check-up was my weight over my age: 106/70.
The other has nothing to do with our protocol. It is that next week we are getting solar hot water! We almost went entirely solar at the beginning but "chickened out" and decided to try this first. There is a federal tax rebate of 30% and NC has a 35% tax rebate in addition.
A few days after our decision, we learned that a very famous dairy goat judge, breeder, and dairy owner is doing the whole thing. She is in CA and hers is the second largest solar profect in CA. This is incredibly exciting that all this is happening!
