Jangan pernah takut untuk bermimpi
Karena mimpimu adalah semangatmu
Dan mimpimu adalah kekuatan doa yang kamu ucapkan dan khayalkan berkali kali lalu tervisualisasikan
Dan mimpimu adalah alasan kamu bekerja keras hari ini.
Thanks allah atas segala kenikmatan yg terjadi dalam hidupku dan hari hariku
So about a quarter of the carbon that we release into the atmosphere comes from energy used in our home. We’ve got an ability to make a significant impact in this regard!
1) Call your utilities company and ask if you can switch to renewable energy sources. Toronto is powered by a nuclear reactor which is most definitely NOT a renewable source.
2) Have a professional come and do an energy audit on your residence. They can tell you where you can save on energy usage (and money)! Insulate and seal your place accordingly.
3) Keep your thermostat one degree higher in the summer and one degree lower in the winter. Again...so much energy to be saved...cha-ching! Almost 50% of the fuel we use in the home comes from temperature regulation.
4) Look into energy efficient appliances if you need new ones. Apparently ENERGY STAR is considered a reliable brand. Or even better, buy appliances used when possible.
5) Unplug devices that are not in use. Many of them “suck” energy even if they look like they are off. Truth: a huge pet peeve of mine is when I see chargers plugged into the wall without a device attached them!
6) Failing all else, calculate your carbon footprint online and consider buying carbon offsets to reduce your impact. I want to learn a lot more about this one.
Tomorrow will be my last post in this series. I am going to delve into carbon removal and carbon offsets. I’m really interested in what we can actively do and I hope you are too!
Be the #thermostat today and not the #thermometer .
Bring your own heat everywhere you go.
Don’t just sit down and wait to measure someone else’s temperature.
Walk with your #fire 🔥
Then you will get your heart’s #desire
Happy Friday #tgif
We fixed our air conditioner! On our last trip it was a little humid out so we decided to fire up the AC for a while to cool things off. We realized quickly that only the fan was coming on, and that the compressor was not cycling. After reading up on the Forest River forums we figured out which wires to jump to bypass the thermostat and test the compressor. (On our model you jump the cool to ground) we confirmed that the compressor would work when we did this so our suspicions that the thermostat was at fault seemed to be correct. 2 days later and our new thermostat arrived from Amazon for less than forty bucks. Swapping it out was a simple affair that only required 2 screwdrivers. As soon as the new one was installed we tested it out and now the compressor kicks on right as you set it anywhere below the ambient temperature. The new internals of the thermostat are vastly different, despite being in an almost identical casing, so hopefully they have been upgraded to be more robust.
Sometimes seeing what some artists think that art can be is such a riot. All of our vacation rentals have state of the art entertainment systems and all the wires are hidden inside of the drywall. This takes incredible effort and cost. Now why would I want a mess of cables FRONT AND CENTER? I suppose this artist’s idea is that you can turn something backwards and it’s art. Linda and I don’t agree, but that’s fine; we just won’t buy any of it! #artcollector#artcollection#artadvisor#wiremess#wireless#drywall#entertainmentsystem#thermostat#vacationrentals
Although, I spent lots of hours watching my dad tear apart, and put back together race cars... the thought of tearing something off my truck, always scared me~ because, If you know me at all, the thought of not being able to run, if, or when I need to terrifies me to the core. But... today~ I replaced this little thingamajigy. The new one is back in place, the system is “burped” and nothing is leaking. #success new #thermostat (With only a few “helllppp me” phone calls!!😂)
