She makes a outstanding cucumber dish. Like many of the mutants, Kevin married up in the society brackets.

Warning serious comment ahead.
Breaking out from poison ivy is due to contact with a fine clear oil on the plant. If this was a thick colored oil like motor oil it would be muck easier to notice but itís not. Once in contact it takes some time before an allergic reaction to start. Washing your exposed skin with soap and water or products like Tecnu will remove the invisible oil before the allergic reaction starts.

Itís important to wash clothing, wipe down tools, gloves and anything that this oil might have been on. Avoiding wiping down your tools could lead to new reactors without even being around new plants.


I treated a lady that kept coming in with a rash on hands, forearms and across her forehead. Turned out she had failed to wash her garden gloves and when she got hot would wipe the sweat from her forehead.

Serious comment over.
I plan to burn the cloths and throw away the tools after I get over this I have had enuff yard work to last a loooong time

Yep, go ahead Kevan. Try and cover up your screw-up.

this screw up is miserable



Very good serious comment but do you really think Kevan will take his yearly bath early?
in Kentucky we have been know to take 2 baths in the same year

Uh, no! To deal with poison ivy- 1) put on full body, hood and booties style Tyvec suit. 2) Add thick, sticker proof gloves and eye protection. Then have someone duct tape the gloves and the sleeves together. 3) take pruning shears and LARGE heavy duty plastic bags to the area were the offending ivy is growing. 4) cut the ivy into pieces small enough to fit into bags. 5) close and securely tie each bag when it is about 3/4 full.

When you have removed all the ivy, treat the roots with Roundup to prevent it from re growing. Stack the tied bags together and attach a hazardous material sign. Remove the Tyvec suit and place in it's own hazard bag. Consider discarding the gloves as well. Set everything in a safe place until trash day.

Never burn, weed eat, or chop poison ivy. Doing so will cause the poison to get you. Immediately wipe anywhere the poison touched your skin with alcohol. Then take a cool shower using lots of soap.

Sitting in the bucket is soaping up, dumping the bucket over yourself is rinsing off. That does not count for two baths.

Now Keven, you need to read those words over and over and over again, then print them out and read them once a day, maybe even hourly so you remember.

I can buy used 250 watt solar panels for $33.75 each. No one knows the life expectancy of solar panels. None have ever failed unless they were damaged. Amazing technology!

Inverting DC solar power to 110 volt AC power requires a device I donít quite understand. So I have built Connie with as many a 12 volt products as I could find. Essentially she is wired like an RV and uses 12V DC lights, fans, TV and refrigerator. I'm looking at a DC freezer also. It sure is nice to skip the monthly electric bill and frequent power outages that my neighbors have to deal with.

And yes HF has 1.5 watt solar trickle chargers for $15.
I'm just curious. With all that sun and cheap solar, why haven't you setup a system with some LiPo batteries and an inverter that allows you to run a real A/C in Connie? I get all the other 12v stuff and it all makes sense but without A/C, I know I wouldn't be able to deal with the heat. A small investment in some nice LiPo batteries would provide enough stored power to run A/C day and night.

Iím confused as to LiPo being a small investment!
Are the $1000 ones the ones?
