    Any photo?
    Here's a shot taken in the infrared spectrum. Leaves on trees are actually green, but not in the infrared spectrum. One image is a "red/blue false color" image. The other is a black and white version.

    Very cool. First one almost looks like the cherry blossoms here in DC.

    What clamp is that on your auto-siphon? That would stop my fat-fingers from stirring up the lees half the time!

    That’s a common nylon spring clamp. They cost about $1.50 at harbor freight depending on size. I sure you could order online from various sources. They can break with hard use in a shop - but they are so cheap I buy a bagful of assorted sizes. They have many household uses, too.

    The clamp ends are flat surfaces that swivel - and they don’t really clamp on a round siphone tube. But for me it was still a very handy way to suspend the siphon above the lees, and I just soaked it sanitizer with everything else. Worked like a charm:).

    Too damn funny and appropriate.

    (Shaking fist): Damn you Varis! I just came it from shoveling "heart attack snow" -- wet and heavy. It is still coming down. :snw

    But please, enjoy yourself in DR! :)

    It is gorgeous here, the beach is amazing this time with no seaweed floating around, clear water and white sand.
    I’m really thinking about a future investment condo

    Investment condos never work out. I know of many who, while on vacation, opted to purchase but ended up wishing they have never bought. Resale was next to impossible at the original price paid.

    In the long run, given that you have limited vacation time, you will be much better off financially if you simply rent a place for the time that you need them.

    Think of it this way. How much would it cost to rent a PALACE down there? Would $3,000 cover it? Would a vacation condo cost much more?
