Today's Musing:

Everything in human cognition, culture, behavior, and endeavor is relative -- no matter what religion, philosophy, polemic, or demagogue asserts. It is built into the nervous system at the very lowest level of processing.

Data Points:

* Sleep, Last Night: 5 hours
* Walking: 156 minutes at greatest difficulty since surgery
* Isometric Abs: 45 minutes
* Right Shoulder/Arm Exercises: 4 exercises x 36 reps x 2 sets
* Calorie Budget Adherence, Yesterday: Spot on!

* Yes, we are getting a (whole house/lot) standby generator with automatic switch on power failure from the grid. It will also have automatic shedding circuits so that at peak demand, the critical functions such as furnace and spa heater are never left without power. WRT the spa (a) electrical code requires that this circuit not be shed, and (b) more importantly, we must replace our spa because when the power failed this last winter, all the pipes cracked in the spa and destroyed it. We don't want another failure of that kind!

* Our propane tank is 500 gallons. We really didn't need one this big, but it halved our per gallon propane cost, and guaranteed power for more than a week of power outage -- which we had and three winters, ago. We had originally wanted it buried, but our installer informed us that the damage that he would do to our landscaping is greater than the eyesore that the current tank will create. Moreover, it is tucked into an obscure corner of the lot, and I will hide further with a fence and vines. (It is bordered on two sides by a hedge row and mature tree.) My only regret is that I didn't do this a few years ago when we replaced the hot water heater (electric) and furnace (oil). I would have gone propane across the board.

* WRT spas: they are "nice to have" at age 40. At age 66 they are mandatory. My only regret is that the way the roof of the house backs up to the deck makes it impossible to put a roof over the deck (to avoid the snow).

    We have a spa too so I guess we need to think about the circuit shedding too. Ot maybe we don't need to as we have a very small house - a cabin in the woods - about 1300 square feet or so. We have not talked about it to the power company yet. We are waiting until we have some of the things installed. We have to change the furnace for the pole barn over to propane gas. We need to replace one of the circulating pumps on our spa. And we want to change the agent we use to keep it clean. We did not like bromine. Our spa is in the screen room. We need to check into the propane tank. Hubby talked to the people who service his bosses tanks already.
