Tire thermometer is cool.

Re: Yard art

The front yard.... part of it. We really enjoy our small fire pit. Long time ago, I posted a pic of the '69 hauling our "sitting rock". Got some looks going up the highway.

You bet it's art! Weld yourself up a re-bar tree, slip those bottles over the "branches" and you have a cool looking glass tree.

Re: Yard art

Stan, yes it is threaded. I took that mount off a historic home I worked on in the '90s. Had that lying around all that time, and also had a variety of insulators I had gathered. The mount takes huge flatheads that I never had big enough any time I'd be motivated to hang it up. Finally one day I ended up with a couple big-uns and hung 'er up! I have a bunch of clear insulators and wooden mounts, too. So the one you have, is it ceramic or glass? I knew people collected them, but had no idea of the values.

I never heard of putting glass out to change color (You pullin' my leg?). But I think glass is cool, especially colored, even in a pile. I walk my road and keep the trash picked up while I'm at it. One day it hit me to pile the cans, glass, and plastic bottles in a clear spot just beyond where the county mows. One, it saved me from carrying it all the way back home. Two, it started looking cool as it piled up. I try to keep the colors glass/plastic on the outer area. Three, maybe it will make the people who still actually think the world is their trash can to spark a trace of conscious thought. Funny thing. Once it started piling up someone took the aluminum cans , so I keep those for myself now. Once, someone came along and picked it all up. I count that as a success. Four, I wanted to see how big and high of a pile it makes to show people how it all adds up.

Also look up the bottle house in Calico Ghost Town. If I had an unlimited supply of bottles I'd build one for sure!

I'm not familiar with that, either.

What is this "sun" thing of which you speak?
