Electrical Surges

Good article I found on Power Protection @ by Chris Hemer.

Okay, for me the first thing I did was take off the ugly wall paper border, and the side panels on the windows.

Monarch butterfly

Cool Monarch butterflies in my backyard in Tucson.



The life cycle of the monarch butterflies depends upon the climate conditions of the place where they bred. Eggs- The monarch butterfly starts its life as a ridged, spherical egg of an inch long. On the underside of the milkweed leaves, the eggs of the butterfly are always laid singly. With quick drying glue, the female butterfly attaches its eggs to the leaf. The egg hatches in about 3 to 5 days and a small Worm-like larva also emerges. 

  • • A black spot on an inside surface of its hind wing distinguishes the male Monarch butterflies from the females that have no such spot
  • • The monarch butterfly does not have lungs; breathing takes place through tiny vents in the thorax or  abdomen called spiracles, and an   organized arrangement of tubes called trachea, distribute the oxygen through the Monarch’s body system.
  • • They have a 10 cm wingspan and weigh between 0.25 to 0.75 grams
  • • The wings flap slower than other butterflies at about 300 to 720 times a minute
  • • Senses of smell and vision help the Monarch butterflies to assess its environment
