@rose_myrtle Like a greenhouse? Skylights do. Roofs have to have a minimum of R-49 for insulation here. The best glass might get you R-2, so it would get very hot or cold.

I'm more of a futurist when it comes to how I read Revelations, but I respect and understand different interpretations. Still, don't be surprised when the Beast of Revelations shows up. The powers that be will try to stamp out Christianity and they will fail. Don't give up or worry if this all unfolds in our lifetime. Jesus will be back.
I was surveying an old street this morning and checking the flow line in the curb and gutter. Up the street I noticed a pool of standing water where someone either designed or built the gutter incorrectly. At first I just shook my head at the carelessness, but then I noticed several sparrows bathing and drinking the water. To them this was a place of life. It is a great wonder and mystery how God can use our mistakes for good.
@coagain1 Truth. I've seen a few people get a little too into prepping, but by and large most people live their lives like everything is always going to be O.K. with no hiccups. Hopefully Covid19 made some people re-think that assumption. In the Toyota Production System(lean) excess inventory is seen as a waste because it has to be tracked and managed. I think this is pretty evident, because properly prepping is a lot of work. How do you draw the lines between contingency planning and excess?
If the PRC is against something, there is a good chance that you should look into it if you love freedom.
@Toolman Thinking of you in all of this. I'm sorry for your loss and that you had to go through the trauma that is the "hospital experience". It is good to know that God is sovereign and with us always, especially in times such as these.
@xyzzy Just seeing this thread. Awesome. Thanks for a trip down memory lane!
Finally got around to messing with cryptocurrencies this week, despite reading the Bitcoin white paper not long after it was published. Here's my 2 cents. This is a pretty revolutionary and cool technology despite its cult-like following and I think it has staying power. The mining process uses a lot of power which some consider waste. What I consider most interesting is that a government's reaction to crytocurrency seems to be good gauge of a given society's freedom. I recommend trying it out.
@beerrs @Patriot_CO I would go out on a limb and suggest that because conservatives are more often Christian, they err on the side of grace, understanding that the tenet of neighborly love trumps a person’s beliefs and worldview. Even though we are broken and wrong in the head, God loves us and provided a path back to Him and regeneration.
