solar power back up

Many days with rain and overcast weather one needs a back up power source. The mind jumps to a generator and its cost. I have had this trouble and then there is the associated noise.

The answer is the car yes the one you drive every day connect to the battery bank and now you can push into the batteries 78 amps of power and the noise is minimal. Different cars have different alternators and power outputs. Just not enough to run the dishwasher but it will run the fridge and the air conditioner which is reverse cycle.

A story of love.

This is a true story of love between a pieces and a Scorpio one a rat and the other a tiger. The female is the rat and the Scorpio. This is between a man and a woman of 56 and  the man 66. They meet on a dance floor in a brief encounter of the eyes. The deal is struck in the blink of an eye. Cupid and his stupid arrows fired at close range with deadly accuracy. Definitely no chance of escape. Both have been hurt in the past badly. Both are going to fight of this thing called love off, in there dreams.
Those two meet and enjoyed each others company for a couple of days over the next weeks falling into the trap of love.
They have made there minds up friends only,
 I can only talk from the mans perspective cause I am he. Sworn off women and love. the drought has been over six years. This is a sinch I got it all planned never again
Short phone call wont hurt will it?
Not on your Nelly....The next bit was written at the time.
Its 1 am and just got off the internet after doing some research time for sleep and normally it comes easily. Head hits the pillow and the eyes spring open. Then the scary bit and I mean scary.
Laying here in pain body vibrating between life and who knows where,  Mussels aching head aching to the point of end. Life seems to be slipping away nerves are being smashed to pieces. I am being dissolved. Life seems to be taken away from me. ( This is pain more intense than a heamatoma which experienced a year ago which needed brain surgery)
I have only pain of all types acting on me at once. Emotions mucking with my head. I rang lifeline and they hung up on me I do not want to die alone. Every part of my being is affected. This is shit of the finest quality amazing stuff that one can not think of or even imagine. I do not want to die and I do not want to go on..........................Blacked out......................woke up and the computer screen is on. I had used it and didn't know..My mind is blank and the feelings of numbness is over me, Its like I am going to sleep and I am awake, sleep might take me and allow my body to heal but from what.
This is a sequal of a time before may years ago and just getting married having sex and the pain flowing over my brain like water pored onto dry concrete. There is a fine line between pleasure and pain and I crossed it.
What does one do this love thing hurts, I did not ask for it but it came to me. I was minding my own mind then crash its there a total train wreck and me in the middle. I'm just a selfish bastard thinking of my self what about the poor lady.
Hey stop laughing its not funny. There has been no sex yet now that might be another story......
I do love her even though it bloody well hurts.

I have to say thank you Origin Energy

As some of you have read my power was turned off by an energy company,Thats fine. I have found I sleep better of a night even though the NBN (phone connection company) power supply is giving off four beeps every 4 minutes due to no power. The thing is there is a quite feeling fallen over my house. My energy has risen to a point of being active again. Yes I still have problems of my making and now I am looking into those. I have no radio or TV but I do have internet when I turn it on(my choise). I am not affected by blackouts. Some time back I started building a gypsy van and it is covered by iron sheeting fully insulated with wood stove and led lights. I do not use it but it is my house insurance.
Now that is another story which I will mention it here. Got my car insurance and to my surprise if the car is not insured I am not covered what every that means,Police can ticket you give it to state debt recovery and the Roads and maritime cancel your registration and then you get booked for being unregistered and uninsured, Now that's a great scam done right here in Australia. This is another scam perpetrated on the people of Australia by our American owned corporate Australian Parliament.

Some time back I renovated my kitchen and went to bottled gas for cooking and I installed solar hot water on the roof so I was part the way to being self sufficient so when the power was cut off I got out the camping led lights and solar panel. If you renovate I would sugest rewiring you house with a second lighting system running off 12 volts which you can do yourself legally as against lawfully. Check out those two words on blacks law dictionary you will be surprised.

Small invertors can be used to run small appliances such as phone charging and razors and radios.

How you are going to lose your home that is fully paid for.

I did a deal with the local council because they would not connect the sewage. Tony Holmes the head of Shoalhaven Water struck a deal, $1000.50 refund of water rates and never to have to pay for water again on the land. Deal done and accepted, contract signed letter sent money changed hands end of story you might think.
Well no I get another letter from Tony on a different matter (who are the share holders of Shoalhaven city council corporation) that was to be sorted out by the general manager Russ Pigg to whom the letter was originally sent to. Russ Pigg being the coward he is flipped it over to Tony Holmes and he said I note your points in his letter and then went on to say he made a mistake "you now have to pay water rates" even though there is no sewer connection or water to the land.
Debt recovery will be implemented and the fictitious bill will be sold on.  Thus now there is no bill it has been paid for by some benevolent corporation. This corporation will inflate the price and then call in Tenex or Surco to enforce their crime."POLICE".
What a great system and you all fall for it.  You are not a slave then think again, you are. To this day I have not had an answer to who are the share holders of Shoalhaven City council corporation.

electricity and sucking eggs

I was in dispute with the electrical ombudsman and I can tell you there is no satisfaction there. They are part of the big grinding wheel and there is no stopping it. The end result was my power was taken from me and all the electrical safty features of the house were turned off including the telephone and internet. They then sent me a bill for $500 au for them cutting the power to my house. The food in the fridge spoiled and I was left with little to eat because I just did the weeks food shopping and all spoiled.  I hit the emergency button on my mobile as I was going down and the ambulance arrived some time later. Blood pressure went threw the roof 217 in fact and I collapsed on the drive way and my good friend and neighbor George came over to help me. You know something is going to happen but the results are not what and how you expected. Ambulance bill another $500. So much for duty and care but this is another story.
Living with out the grid has been a learning curve. Opening the back of the meter box and all the wires there and then thinking which ones do I cut the connect my camp generator to. Wires selected and cut and an extension cord attached genny started first go and then the run inside to see the damage. Power and lights all working. You just have to have some luck sometimes.
So I was up and running again so time to do the sums.  Fictitious electrical charges came to over $2000 and an ongoing fee of 28 dollars a week. I got 2 solar panels 200 watts and 2 truck batteries and along with wire and stuff including a 3000 watt inverter total $800 dollars day to glue the panels to the roof and wire up and connect to the power lead at the meter box.
After a week I knew the storage was too low so a new 100 amp hour battery was purchased and installed. My wako fridge was then removed from the shed where it sat for over 15 years. The thing would not start  rapid movement of the switch and walla working fridge. It was put in service yesterday and the volts were 12.5 this morning so for winter one more panel and another battery should complete the system. final costing will be less then $2000 au. The ombudsman rang to inform me I had to pay and my message to them was "go suck eggs". Hot water was replaced when I bought the place and solar was chosen I am totally self sufficient.  I run the generator for washing cloths and I charge all my batteries at the same time. I have a 240 volt electric lawn mower and I do the mowing when the cloths are washing or I can runn the dishwasher. Hey aint life grand. My son the lawyer is still laughing about the power being turned off.
The yellow wire at the bottom of the photo is the extension cord and all the circuit breakers are working as normal. If you do not know what you are doing do not attempt this. The system is alive in the photo running off the inverter.
