A close up of the thermal flu part, the glass is reflecting the iron. The sun heats the air inside the glass pulling less warmer air in and allowing hotter air to escape (hot air rises). This causes all the hot air in the kitchen cavity to be extracted.

The lid above is bolted 3 cms off the thermal column, allowing hotter air to escape. The inside chamber is painted high temperature black, to help absorb heat.

I have been working on this 100yr old wood stove, Diane loves. It was used by her long ago as a tenant. The mini-orb metal sheeting protects the walls from heat, and a special built funnel guides heat, fumes and smoke up the thermal chimney.

Welded up the horizontal turntable for the wire netting. Because it moves width ways the progress is much slower, about 1.2 to 1.5 m each time. Not sure how I will navigate over the fruit trees, soon to be a challenge.

Ready for tomorrow. The platform is very stable, with 5 stabilizer poles help. I also stand on a milk carton as well for that extra height at times. The red boxy thing in the picture on the trolley platform. The ringlock pliers makes it easy to attach netting to the wire.

My old Lenova Laptop died. The Hardly Normal techo saleperson got upset with me and walked off. I must be a hard customer. So all you techo wizards out there some questions….

(1) Can a Android phone get malware or not, when you go Internet banking, I told him it is near impossible for viruses to harm an Android phone….and it you bothered to make a malware virus it could not do much for the attacker, on a unix based system with secure banking? Am I write, or is my techo salesman right?

(2) Windows 11 S version (simplified version) cannot and will not allow executable file packages to unpack on your C drive? Wow, why bother having a computer like this? All it does is surf the Internet with it’s pre installed software…. He said something like it run things slowly if your tied?? I do not run game packages, so I get the speed issue if your a modern geek on gaming…but I use my machine for doing Paint, NotePad and I also run FTP Cute software to upload txt files. I also use a Flash app to run fla video

I am planning my retirement years into the research of this man’s work.

It’s a wonderful video about the science forces that stem from our heavenly Father.

Now that science people are religious, they are not, they do research and make experiments.
This man died in Federal Prison in the USA for doing research. How sad for humanity, we lost so much.
Hopefully my own research will investigate the bio nature of health forces in living things.

In effect, the new Bill under the guise of the Biosecurity Act has power to inspect properties

to prevent entry of pests and diseases into Victoria;

and

provides new offences for inappropriate use of plant health documents, and the sale of diseased plants, both of which complement existing offence provisions, and will support the use of Infringement Notices for the offences.

In other words making it harder to grow organic food, as it will harbor disease and spoil GMO food crops.

Suppose you want to cur tin sheets lengthwise, an angle grinder cutting blade is too costly, especially if you have over 100 sheets to rip into halves.
So you use a stainless steel braided wire, the braids act like dull knives, place it under the sheet and with a handle you pull the stainless steel cable upwards, cutting the iron sheet.
