I found it, it's gotta be at least 3 years old put I put it at the end (the house end not the street end) of my driveway if you wanna come pick it up at any point.
If we have to show the house and bring it inside, It'll be in the side door of the garage. right inside.

drive by and swipe.
I sent an sms to your phone, but you know what? your number isn't 588 whatever anymore, so I've been having this nice conversation about driveway sealer with some complete stranger.

Not to worry ... if you sent text messages to that number, you're chatting with my wife.

now thats fancy.

a city in middle germany had some deep drilling to use ground heat for radiation.

the drilling hit a gypsum layer...

and made the way free for whater to enter that layer.

if gypsum mixes with whater it swells.

result: the city is lifting up to 30 cm (~ one foot) -> Houses all over the place have cracks of up to 1 cm diameter...

and now... if one has a little knowledge about the ground, an knows what happenes if that gypsum finds a way to drain off...

my hot guess is that within the next thirty years 'stauffen' will become a ghost town.

But the whole place will be one big mess of drywall that can be carved into buildings :)

well, desulphurisation of the smoke from coal powerplants gives you more gypsum than you can handle, no need to dig it out..

I guess american wood based houses would do better there, but its either stone or carcass...

unless you live on the san andreas thing the possibility of earth quakes and ground lifting/sinking is not as high..

(unless you live in cologne and they build a subway next to your house :-[ )

Build-your-own HPS or HID fixture. Anyone done it? I wanted to put one in my detached garage but the fixtures were too expensive so I just got a 150w equivalent CFL instead. I doubt it'll last.

Have any local auction houses around?  Here the Sherriff's department regularly auctions off that sort of thing for real cheap...along with hydroponics gear and various gardening tools.

I did think it was quite amusing that when I Googled for DIY on this stuff, it came up with all of the "home growers" sites. Now I'm probably on a watchlist somewhere...

Iv'e got one of the 150w CFL's in my garage.... takes a while to warm
up, but once it does it puts out a fair amount of light. It'll pretty
well illuminate the back half of the garage.

The 600w halogen lights the rest of it, and keeps it warm in the winter
:)

Heh. :)

Now I'm hearing that there is such a thing as HPS and/or HID bulbs with built-in ballasts that screw into ordinary Edison screw sockets. Does that really exist?

even the first ones with leds start to show up.

I guess the EU is a little more forward on this issue.

We're starting to see reasonably priced LED bulbs here too. They're showing up at around the price point CFL's were before the el-cheapo chinese ones started to show up.

I was hoping to light my garage with a sodium lamp of some sort. This will have to do for now.

After enduring "the Christmas with no cookies" we finally got our new oven today.

Converting it from natural gas to propane was pretty easy.  Climbing out from behind it after making the final connections ... that wasn't so easy.

Finally I can cook again.  I've wanted a new range (or "cooker" to you weirdos on the other side of the pond) for a long time, but I've kept the old one on life support for many years now.  Finally it was time.  Note the continuous grates.  No more burner covers sliding all over the place when I'm trying to move pots and pans around.  That drove me crazy.
