    There's a 1000' line...buried...for the start/stop commands to the generators out here. I learned a costly lesson a few years, ago. First sign of a lightning storm...I flip all the AC power breakers, off...as well as the wires going into the start/stop box. It's a 12v line that lives off the starter battery. A nearby strike will charge the long wire and fry the mother board in the genset. $7300 when it happened... I got a $5000 deductible on my insurance "to save me money". Ha! $5000........
    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    Clever Aussie.
    The Progressives have become full blown NAZIs, to thwart a Hitler that doesn't exist...since that is the only way they can express, and self justify, their fascism.
