(repost) DIY Antenna for ‘free’ TV

TV ant

Fourteen years ago the old rabbit-ears antenna I hung under the upstairs porch was not cutting it ! So I made my own digital reception out of welders rods & Stainless Steel mesh ! There are some simple yet effective homemade TV Antenna designs that can be built at home with parts you may already have around your house.

I finally broke down and purchased an Amplified eave mount rotating Digital 60 mile range Antenna for  ๐Ÿ’ฒ35 later in 2019 โ—๏ธ

Homemade Barometer

I have been using one of these for years. Calibrate by placing a marker
dot for a stormy day then another for a nice day. these will be the
reference points. From then on I can tell rise or fall of the air


The straw is taped to glad wrap secured to top of the can.


I finally got something aย  little more accurate with numbers too ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ There are currently 538 electors, and an absolute majority of electoral votesโ€”270 or moreโ€”is required for it to elect the president and vice president.
The electors meet and vote in December and the president is inaugurated in January. 

Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 provides that each state shall appoint electors selected in a manner determined by its legislature, and it disqualifies any person holding a federal office, either elected or appointed, from being an elector. โ—๏ธ

The current Electoral College system allows a candidate to win the Presidency while losing the popular vote, an outcome seen as counter to the one person, one vote principle of democracy.

I have voted in 12  ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ presidential elections. I un-registered for the last two. โ—๏ธ
