It’s allowed me to dive deep into my barbecue reading while I’ve been waiting (yes I’m still waiting) for my XL Big Green Egg to arrive. I have no idea where it is. Somewhere on the high seas according to the BBQ place I bought it from, and who are no happier than me. My XL table for nesting my XL Egg inside is taking up space in their store while we all wait for late stage capitalism to get with the wish fulfilment.

We replaced our old solar panels about a year ago. The inverter had died and although we could have just swapped it out, the panels were ten years old and solar tech has come a long way in the last decade. So, I got the provider to max our rooftop coverage and… boom! Even though we lost the old 41c feed in tarrif, we still end up making money off the install.

When I checked we were a nearly a grand in credit on the power bill.

What I’m thinking now though is BATTERIES.

Been keeping my head down, literally, this week. I’m entering the final few days of a three week long treatment with Effudix, a skin cancer cream, to wipe out the last of the baby BCC’s growing on my noggin.

It’s gross.

I’ve had this treatment before, and it is a wonder drug, but it’s also kind of a horror show. No pics. You’d faint, if you were lucky. I finish the last application;ication next Tuesday and I am very much looking forward to it.
