I don't Want To Go There Again...!
I have been to the airport here in Houston more in the past week than in the past year!
I've done 4 round trips in the last 10 days. No big deal, right? Well, for someone that doesn't like crowds, planes, dealing with machines, and having to be held hostage by overly rude attendants at over priced parking garages...it can become a big deal very quickly!
Add to that, the fact that during the last trip, the parking lots were full...except on the third floor parking area in the very rear...about a quarter mile from the terminal, where the passengers were picking up baggage.
Bottom line here...I DON'T want to go there again any time soon! OK? OK!
Now for the newest item I've added to my Preps! A small solar powered shed light! Not for outside use, though...I wanted to use it inside as a night light or as a back up when the power went out!
It's not very bright (equal to about a 30 watt light bulb), but what you need to remember here, folks...is that in the dark even a candle is better than nothing! A good example of this is to consider the night lights you may have around your house! Most are about 4 watts, but they at least allow you to move around in the dark safely, don't they?
Anyway, this light is perfect for a start to the extra lights I'll be using at the cabin. Powered by the sun, this one is a fluorescent bulb...but you can get them with LED bulbs as well! I like this particular one, because it has a pull string to turn it on and off!
I'm satisfied, for now. The main thing about these lights is to not expect too much light, OK? These lights are fairly inexpensive and quite possibly could come in very handy some day!
Just thought I would pass this on to you, for what it's worth!
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and enjoy the sunshine for a bit, OK?
