The LIVE webinar with Sara Martin went really well on Friday. The link to the recording is just below.

Even though we're about to get 6 inches of new snow here in central New Hampshire beginning in an hour, I'm confident that Old Man Winter is headed south to visit you should you live below the Equator.

The extended forecast for the next two weeks doesn't look bad.

Yesterday, I was outdoors for several hours with my very good friend Jim doing some outdoor amateur radio. The conditions were mild as we walked towards the river, but then things changed. opens in a new windowCLICK HERE to read about that adventure!

That's me sitting at a mud-covered picnic table that a month ago was under 8 feet of flood water. You can see a glimpse of the Pemigewasset River in the upper right corner of the photo.

My hands are covered with a colorful pure wool Morse muff made by Ms. Margaret Lohmann, better known as Maggie. Maggie's a subscriber that lives not too far from where I'm sitting and she loves to knit.

I've offered advice to Maggie and her husband in the past so they could save money on repairs. She always wants to reciprocate. Once I discovered she knits, I had a small list of things I needed!

I'm holding a small device called a paddle that's inside the muff. You press two different levers on it to send Morse code. Without the muff, my fingers get cold in a flash.

Water Softeners and Septic Tanks

Does the wastewater from your home drain into a septic tank in your yard?

Do you have a water softener? The two things don't play well together.

The regeneration water created when the softener flushes unwanted minerals from the resin tank should NEVER be piped to the septic tank.

This salty water needs to be piped outdoors and drain onto the soil.

The high concentration of minerals in the discharge water will CONTAMINATE and KILL the bacteria in the septic tank.

You need healthy and abundant bacteria inside the septic tank so you don't ruin your leach field.

It's easy to pipe this regeneration water outdoors.

The LIVE Webinar Recording

On Friday afternoon, I teamed up with Ms. Sara Martin to do my first LIVE webinar. It was Sara's idea. She's an architect who lives and works in Knoxville, TN.

The first minute of the webinar had Sara checking to make sure we were indeed live and broadcasting to the world. Then we had a minor snafu trying to show you images and photographs.

But Sara persevered as I blabbered on and soon all was well. The next webinar will be much much smoother.

I'd say that's quite enough for a Sunday. As I finish this up, the snow has started to fall. That's okay, it just transforms into gorgeous blue lake water in a month!
