    I love my job....






    Watch CNN today and you'll probably see one of the guys I know really well here in Hawaii. He has come up with an awesome invention that can fry, bake and boil foods. This is what I was talking about in the other thread about how I am meeting guys who are putting things together in their garages just like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs. Well he hasn't been in his garage he's been in the back of our warehouse designing this thing. This thing has potential for many other uses that I can't divulge at the moment but it's a big step......

    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Excellent. A little bulky, but excellent.

    I've been considering alternatives for power, as well as cooking here at the Cafe'. We'll even be growing our own produce this season.
    Don't think I could use this solar approach here, but think of all of the positive effects it could have on the "recreational grilling" demographic.

    Gotta start somewhere.


    Hey Manic, what have you heard about a new saline based energy source?

    The solar concentrators and molten salt system? Thats a good way of storing thermal energy then you run the molten salt in pipes through cool water and produce steam to run regular steam turbine electric generators.....

    Yeah, that's the ticket.

    I ran into this guy the other day who was ranting and raving about how this is the future for all automobiles. "Fill your car up for fifty cents"..."zero emissions...no negative impact on the environment" on and on he went..Dude was very excited, needless to say.

    In theory, it sounds interesting. But I doubt we'll be using it any time soon.

    Great now that this story has broke another news station is coming down to run a story on PV Systems, I guess this is how they work. One breaks a story that goes to CNN and the rest have to drum up a story themselves.... They better not ask to interview me I hate television.....

    John is an awesome dude, he even gave one of my hairbrained ideas of running a small propane Absorbtion fridge on it using the ovens heat to run it. It worked but not efficiently enough to make an impact. He's had to reinvent a few things to make it marketable and third world friendly. Once he finishes he'll go back to the fridge idea so they can store fish and dairy. I have full faith he will get this thing out there to the people who need it....

    Why are you drumming up year old threads? The equation is a secret that involves intense calculus and trigonometrics. I mean just finding out where the sun crosses Earth's face on your part of the world takes hours of calculation and waiting....

    Cause my momma said I could do whatever the hell I want.

    I'm just trying to dig up dirt on everybody and take the mother over.
