[quote:Anonymous Coward 4393568:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzI4NzUwNTMwXzZFMkExNjc3] Theoretical battery from locally gathered materials continued [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R2u1cR95Vqs&feature=related[/youtube] The simplest (and flawed) system for producing stored dc power from a battery that is trickle charged by a minimal solar power. In a better system, a car battery could be the stored dc battery, and in even better system a deep cycle marine battery would be used to store the power. Of course the better the battery, the longer it will take to recharge it, and the better the solar panel, the less time it will take to recharge it too. The inverter is needed to power AC devices, but clearly this isn't intended for any AC devices that use high amperage. Many dc power devices can directly be powered from the battery and skip the inverter. An ideal way to do this is to wire up the setup and place it all contained within a battery box. This will make it far easier to avoid an electrical shock, and prevent curious children from accidentally touching the electrical leads. Honestly there is no way to idiot-proof something like this. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFwngz_ZvkQ&feature=BFa&list=ULvS7y_S3v7Dc&lf=mfu_in_order[/youtube] Naturally if you possess the ability to recharge people's batteries, or you possess a way to have them turn in their batteries and sell them flashlights in return, you need to have the setup in your home and with a minimal footprint as it will be something they would want. Since many people are selfish, but uneducated about electricity, if things are stable and you can produce low voltage power sources either altruistically or in order to trade it and help your family, you'll be able to create some minor stability for your neighborhood. This is an excellent community project, as many folks will have expended batteries around their household in drawers and forgotten. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
