Were they realy talking? Seems the only ones that shoud have been at the start were those interested in the "position".


I only checked the thread to see if you had found someone. If not, good luck!

I was enjoying the conversation... LOL.

I have a lot of interest, I just have to weed through them all.

The purchase agreement has been signed by both parties and I have to order a survey. Anyone know any good surveyers around Palm Beach, FL, I need someone to do a COMPLETE survey.

After that, I'll need to put new batteries in her, add some solar panels and a wind generator and get a dingy and motor. The only place I can think of for a good used dingy and motor is craigslist, if anyone has any other ideas feel free to share. Also any ideas on a cheap solar panel system w/longevity. I came across a guy in a marina on my sail down to Florida who had some cheap chinese made ones but I can't remember the name, he said he had them for acouple years and gave them two thumbs up. I plan on the KISS wind generator. I've been trying to study up on battery charge controllers for solar panels but am a bit stumped. I need something that'll handle 4 135 solar panels and 2 kiss wind generators, I know the wind generators lose some by going through a controller but I'm going to play it safe. I only plan on starting with 1 wind generator but would like a controller that'll handle two just incase. I know this isn't what the thread was about and I can probably find some of this info in other threads but what the hell... LOL. It's not easy trying to do all this with the kids demanding my attention so any help is much appreciated.

Didn't end up getting a Nanny because my wife didn't like the idea of me adding a young nanny (female) to the mix.

I'll say again, age doesn't matter... :-P
I'll send you an email soon, forgive me, I'm discombobulated with everything I'm trying to fit into such a small time frame. I could use some organization...

So, it must not have been her idea to start the search then huh?

Actually age would be your advantage, your life experience could probably teach me some culinary skills...
Can you bake bread?
