Creating power for your home, off grid.

I should just stick to playing the accordion. It does not make electricity, and I don't need electricity to make it play.
I know what thermodynamics is. It's when I wear a coverall suit inside my bus during the winter to keep warm.
KISR=Keep It Simple, Rudy.
My formal education ended with graduation from a high school in Alabama. What just came to your mind then? LOL. That's okay, I've learned to live with the perception that most of the country seems to have of the South. And some of it well earned. By folks I know. Damn it, by my own family. Well shat, maybe even by me! Anyhow, from somewhere along there, I started learning that there's no free lunch. When this window starts acting like this, I guess the post is too long. So, mebbe I'll just post it and reply.
Like I was saying, well what was I saying? Anyway, Rudy, we love you man! Something I think I've noticed. People like you, musically talented, seems to me, your brain works somewhat different than people like me, who have no musical or artistic-type talent. I do love music. My kids know this, and several years ago they got me a guitar for christmas. That thing's never been played. Got me a video and a book to learn by too. And still, no music has ever been dragged out of that instrument. Even after watching the video, and trying. Man I just can't understand it. I do have an ear for music, was a part-time song-leader in a fundamentalist-type southern church when I was afflicked with a belief in religion (man, you oughta been there!).
But mechanical things just seemed to make sense to me. At about age 12, I reversed my bike's pedal-crank and rear wheel, so I could ride the bike backwards. Couldn't get the hang of it though, so I fixed it back right, sat on the handlebars, and made the bike go forwards while I faced backwards. At age 57 I can still do that. Won several kids lunch-money by betting on that trick!
Anyway, guess I'm just saying, I appreciate Sharkey's technical sense, and likewise, Rudy's artistic sense. And if ya'll haven't noticed, I've had a little too much WT 101. Sorry. That stuff's a pretty good lubricant.
At least I'm a happy drunk, not a mean one. LOL
ALSO, at 57, I too can sit on the handlebars and face backwards, turn corners, and use the brakes. I haven't seen many people do that.
I once wore a clown suit, and followed an old Fire Engine in a town parade. That was a little tricky because I had to go so slow.
Fun stuff. Always makes people laugh when they see it someone riding a bicycle backwards.
