Still staying with the solar frame of mind, we purchased a solar umbrella.The umbrella is for our outside table. We put it up on our stone patio in the morning. We get a lot of sun there so, the solar panel will receive a good charge. Later on at night the family sat out on the stone patio,turned on the umbrella lights and we enjoy a great time. The lights are very bright, we where able the turn off the outside lights. There was still enough light to see and talk. So my daughter said "Where's the wine" and we all laughed. I think tonight we will set out and have some Hot Tea and Crumpets.
We are still doing our part to conserve electricity. Working on Going Green for Good. One Step at a Time.
