Good Morning, I am a first time blogger, not knowing what I am exactly doing, but tying to get things moving on this end. My main profession is the heating, air conditioning, and indoor air quality,
this problem which most of us have and are not aware of. All we usually notice is that we have asthma or allergy problems from dust or pollens. Many times our main source of comfort creates these situations, our heating and air conditioning systems. This is going to be my main theme for this web log, but I do plan on expressing myself about other things that relate to us having a healthier and more productive existence while here on dry land. We have concerns with the food we eat and its quality, the water that we drink and its purity, and we should also have concerns with the air that we breathe in. The doctors tell us that we need about 8 glasses of water daily for our systems to function properly, "some interpret that into 8 beers or diet cokes", but we do think if the water is contaminated and only want pure, clean, water, yet we inhale about 3,400 gallons of air per day about 20,000 glasses. Do we think about what we breathe? With the out breaks we have had with E-Coli and Staph, hepatitis, and many other bad bugs, imported and domestic make me also have concerns with what I consume on a daily basis, are we concerned with chlorine and its effects on our immune system. That is why organic products have had such a rise in markets the past years and will be a topic for another day as well as our water.
At this time business is real slow and I have taken the time to do things around the homestead, we had some select cut logging done and I have been cutting firewood when ever weather permits, just finished installing a new metal roofing system on the old humble abode in Hawaiian Blue, as well as cleaned out a catfish pond that did not make it through this years rainless summer. This project did result in a lot of very rich soil that I am using to do raised bed gardens for our heirloom tomatoes, and other veggies. Those out there that have dealt with only hybrid store bought tomatoes just don't know what you are missing if you have not had some of the old time favorites, like Radiator Charlies "Mortgage Lifter" from the 1920's, or the "Arkansas Traveler", or "Red Brandywine" to name just a few of these rich, flavor filled tomatoes. I can't hardly wait till spring planting is here. I am also in the middle of building a propagation room to start our seedlings in with a large hot bed on the inside so I can have fresh vegetables all winter. Well enough rambling for now, its time for coffee, website work and then back to the chain saw and splitting mall. Got make money some how.
