I have a site now. My daughter has taught me a lot the past month. I can publish and do all that stuff. I wanted a one page site with minimal graphics just links that will load fast on my IPhone. It will get some arrangements made over time but if you like it and want a link considered send it to me.

Right now that site is my used bookstore of links to share with the world. Zillions of free link sites on the internet. I told Kiril I wanted a site just like The Drudge Report. haven't decided if I want to monitor hits or use it to encourage other stuff. Trying to make money on the internet is a get rich quick scheme in many cases that never pans out. I've got a nephew who has been trying for several years and thousands of dollars to make money on texting and internet traffic. The more things change the more they stay the same. In the end of the day you need to have a product that sells or a talent that people will pay for. FACEBOOKS though they get a ton of hits and visits still hasn't figured out how to make a profit. If I could work the way I worked as a 30 year old the best money I could make for time invested is repairing sprinkler systems.

Never said it was a get rich quick scheme. It can be a small supplemental income though, for virtually doing nothing. MY GF was making about $1000-$2000 a year for having a few portal sites. (I think that was the right term). She had this domain for a few years and sold it last year. http://www.foxfitness.com/

I guess I used the wrong language didn't mean it to sound that way but I'll look into it. (I don't even know what portal means, I know in Star Trek they got stuck in a portal a few times.) I'll be more open minded. What did she sell it for?

You hand pick and oversee, centralize and you could make life easier for them.

Expanding pigtail sales is my main goal. But the other seems intriguing. My ego says one thing but I don't like the thought of trying to be a kingmaker. What I want is young contractors to develop passion through enthusiasm and knowledge. Retraining 30+ contractors is next to impossible. You can make subtle changes but old habits and cynicism are hard to break. Once they get it in their head it is all about price and the rest is window dressing and not the other way round you have a steep hill to climb. 30+ need to see the light on their own. Young folks you can still influence.

I do need to find a site that starts the day. What I have in mind is a site that a person individualizes with their daily goals and bad habits to break. Gets them out the door to that first job or chore. I had to trick myself in my 20s to be a consistent worker. I did it by always having an 8am service call. If I only got 5 service calls I put them all down at 8am. Once out of the house I tended to work all day.

Woooooh. I'm really not a political guy. I may not agree with the basic premise of that site anyway. Unless we go back to living like Indians I'm not sure how you avoid growth. Add people? Need growth. I'm in the school of thought now that we need to shut the door on all immigration.Our resources are stretched thin and more citizens leads to more environmental degradation. grow by natural child birth. Unfortunately our ponzi scheme of a social security system requires adding more workers as the number on SS increase. Since the socialists are running the show now we will not have a proper free market correction to lead to new growth. Instead we've entered a prolong malaise economy. But I'm not a political guy. really Oh by the way have you noticed the National Debt? No biggie 10.8 trillion ho hum But hey I'm not a political guy.......

I read all that Dana...Very interesting. My economic philosophy and opinion of human nature doesn't see it as possible. It requires zero population growth and heavy govt. involvement inmo. Also has the dreaded redistribution factor which I adamantly oppose. It is basically the Sweden model. Nobody is moving to Sweden. Very insular country. Still that govt takes 44% of the money and they still have budget problems. Socialism (and this is socialism inmo) works until the people you are taxing finally run out of money. I have a great deal of sympathy for the desire. I think to get this country where they want to go isn't going to happen without one ugly revolution. I personally would quit being nice about immigrants to this country. SHUT THE FRIGGIN DOOR. 300 million is ENOUGH. Kick all illegals out NOW. The Dems want to make them citizens since they know it means an extra 8 million democrats.

I will say that I have followed the TD Mechanical model closely and plan to make my next venture similar to them. Lots of employee ownership. I'm going to see if I can get New Belgium to give me a seminar on their setup.


If we must stop aggregate growth because it is uneconomic, then
how do we deal with poverty in the SSE? The simple answer is by
redistribution—by limits to the range of permissible inequality, by a
minimum income and a maximum income. What is the proper range of
inequality—one that rewards real differences and contributions rather
than just multiplying privilege? Plato thought it was a factor of four.
Universities, civil services and the military seem to manage with a factor
of ten to twenty. In the US corporate sector it is over 500. As a first step
could we not try to lower the overall range to a factor of, say, one
hundred? Remember, we are no longer trying to provide massive
incentives to stimulate (uneconomic) growth! Also, since we are not
trying to stimulate aggregate growth, we no longer need to spend billions
on advertising. Instead of treating advertising as a tax-deductible cost of
production we should tax it heavily as a public nuisance. If economists
really believe that the consumer is sovereign then she should be obeyed
rather than manipulated, cajoled, badgered, and lied to.

I'll keep it in mind. I still may get a alligator clip version as well. Every decision though becomes big because these are mass produced and adding anything throws a wrench into the proceeding. Remember the tips are scored so just pull the ends and twist tight. I've seen little hair wires touch the next terminal and two zones pop on instead of one. Also keep a box or small jar of the blue dry splices handy at all times and I carry some 18ga multi with me in case I need to pigtail off the terminal and wire nut the zone and pigtail wires. One more thing get a bag of cable ties to fasten the pigtail to the wire conduit or something that will keep it from being accidentally yanked out. Good luck don't hesitate to call if I can help.

Peter, Were you planning of alphabetizing your lists?

Maybe even different categories or headings for manufactures (Cansense, RM, RB, Hunter) and a heading for equipment and tools (moisture probes, remotes)

Also you forgot one of the most important ones, www.calsense.com

Not sure about calsense. I live in the real world. I'll add them at the bottom. i may ABC it later. Right now I'm just adding links.

I can answer that ................. NO! :laugh:

It wouldn't be a used bookstore of links if it was organized. My thought is to make people scroll to find something and be distracted by another topic or link.

I think it's more of anything he feels like putting in, he will.
Completely subjective to his opinions and whatever the heck he wants to put in. I like it a lot!! :clapping:

That would be damn handy to have on a website; might even be a subscription service to keep the lazy boys in 3.2.

I read what I need to read. I don't read those all the way through and I wouldn't suggest anybody do that. If you have a need to do a quick topic research I hope my site helps. The only society I'm part of is the TX Irrigators Guild. i have plenty on CA for your benefit. Will add more later. (Need some FL links? N. C. links SE USA in general) (NE USA as well) (MI area anybody?)

Ok I misunderstood what you meant by Education. I thought you were listing YOUR education background. The education you have had. You might want to change that from Education to Education Resources. For my benefit the CA stuff... you put for me? Then I will be sure to read whatever you have that I have not already read. Thank you.

Peter - there is a lecture and a course at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science that might interest you. I may go to one or two. Look at the first and last ones listed on this page (http://dmns.org/NatureUnleashed/exhibition-programs/adult-programs/). The last one is spendy, but I think it has a field trip somewhere. I'm going up to see this Nature Unleashed exhibit sometime soon. I am a fan of "extreme" weather, and love following blizzards, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.
