Sunday Night Hodge Podge

Legare St., Charleston, S.C.

Silly things I may need: Silicone Ice Ball Maker.

I discovered a couple of lowcountry bloggers. Stop by and say hello to:

Soak & Simmer
: Sun, food, water, and sun. From the bluegrass to the lowcountry.

Charm of Charleston
: Charleston, South Carolina – from Sand to Sandwiches

Dining Around Charleston: Exploring the Holy City's Hidden Gems

I was so excited to learn that the new Boeing plant in North Charleston will cover it's roof with solar panels and will be entirely powered with renewable energy. Thanks Boeing!

Photographer Jeffery Stoner made a recent trip to the lowcountry and added some photos to his gallery: Jeffrey Stoner Fine Art Photography

The garden photos were taken through a gate on Legare St. Thanks to all of you who send me ideas for photos and emails responding to something I've mentioned. I love hearing from you. Forgive me for not always responding immediately.

That’s pretty much it. While the newer, high efficiency technology is best for solar panels, old fashioned technology is
best when it comes to batteries for a home solar power system. For home solar systems, sealed lead acid batteries are what you should use.

I'm sure they did it to assuage their corporate inner-Green. Nothing to do with saving money. ;)

Low: Whatever works, eh! They are a big enough operation to make the expense worthwhile. Wish I could do it to my house.

As always, a pleasure to wander here. Regardless of Boeing motivation ( and I think corporate and heart do not go hand in hand) the fact it has happened is a good result. Go solar!!

Charleston would never let me do it, but I'd love love love to put solar panels on my roof. With the sun wattage we get here, I'd be in the power!

I read all those blogs too - they're all great! :)

maggsworld - Go solar indeed!

Jess - They need to get over it. I love old houses but solar makes so much sense here we should be doing everything we can to make it work.

Sarah - you are most welcome!

Christina - Nice to see all the new blog activity.
