Why do you want to heat hot water? Isn't it hot enough already? Sorry, couldn't resist. "Hot Water Heaters" is just a phrase that always sounds redundant to me.

I think "Cowgirl in the Sand" would be a better tune for your circumstance!

what is cool though is that I have a 160gig hard drive loaded with music so when sitting anyway I just plug that into my laptop and plug the laptop into the head unit and I got a ton of freaking music
its funny I have allot of LPs and CDs bu man you can fit allot of dam music in a little metal box or on a chip

I have these 4 gig micro SD cards that hold many albums technology is awesome for music

man its been cloudy here for a week or so followed by about 3 or 4 days of rain and I had to use the generator for the first time 6 months or so (had power at the farm I lived on for charging batteries) the freaking main and idle jets were all nasty and it wouldent run at first but a few strands of wire from a piece of 10 gage and some non chlorinated brake cleaner I had luckily and VIOLA! the drone of a freaking generator for like almost all day
so now my batteries are happy again and we are supposed to have some sun now

thanks for being here guys and gals

take care
JAK
yeah my stereo i got from walmart for $80 can take the sd cards, usb sticks and mp3s to it is nice no more just playing with cd's any more..... as for the micro sd cards i have a 8 gig in my cell phone.

Re: jak & ann in the desert bluebird flat face

So far, I like you... Stand up guy...

I'm only a year younger than you... Still married with 3 kids... I can only imagine how hard it was to make the decisions you've made to insure that your son will have what he needs...

The only thing I can offer is, spend as much time with him in the summer that you can... Show him places and things... The memories will last a life time...

Have you ever noticed that all the feel good, back when I was a child movies, almost always take place during the summer???

Good luck with the new job...
