Going Solar on a Cloudy Day

Posted by Casey on May 1, 2007

I’m researching a new story. So I built a simple solar oven. I’m three-dimensionally challenged with klutzy fingers, so simple is a relative term. But all the fun details in a story come from the things that can go wrong and figuring out shortcuts, etc.

I’m going to test it on the next sunny day. So stay tuned . . .

    There you are! We have thought about you now and then. Send recipe for cinnamon rolls.

    Hey Dawn, Kim,
    I’ve been gypsying up and down the West Coast. I like it out here. You have to promise to bake the cinnamon rolls for the department and don’t add any of those Cajun spices to them. I actually double the amount of cinnamon because that’s the best part.
    Recipe is here:

    Hi,
    Thanks for the recipe. Since I can’t eat ’em, I am not cooking them, but I will bring ingredients and hook somebody else into doing it. No Cajun spices. Since cinnamon lowers blood sugar, double sounds good. Glad you are enjoying life. I am enjoying my first grandson, born May 1, 2006. He’s a keeper. Kim’s children are all taller than both of us. Things crazier than ever in the library. I can’t wait to retire.

    Hey Dawn,

    Too bad you can’t eat the rolls, they’re delicious. I am enjoying life. A grandson and Kim’s kids all grown up. Wow. Time passes too quickly.

    I don’t miss working in a library. I’ve gotten too used to working with a kitty on my lap (right like now, little Temeka is purring away on my lap) and setting my own hours.
