Default Those solar lit Lighthouses....

I weakened and bought one today. It has a solar panel hidden in the top, at
sundown a pretty glow comes on in the light area. The solar rechargeable
battery is replaceable when needed. It's about 30" tall and quite realistic
looking. I love it and set it by the smaller pond. :-))

I'll admit I also have a weakness for solar energy
decorations, although I haven't tried that one yet.
That one sounds lovely.

============================
It was well worth the price of $24.99 at Wal-Mart. It's very well made
(metal, glass and resin) and very realistic looking. We both love it.

I'd seen them in other stores, some were cheaper, but none were as nice as
this one. Not only the rechargeable battery, but the bulbs are replaceable
as well.

I recently found some solar-powered lights that I'm *extremely* pleased
with. Usually, they're jus' dim little glows of light; but these, with
their three white LEDs, actually *light* something up!

It's Malibu Solar Accent Lighting; Three pack spot lights; Model LZ413

Home Depot lists a LZ413A on their site; don't think they're the same
(I'd wager they're Amber-colored). Lowe's had 'em here for, I think,
$49.99 and I picked up three more sets at Orchard Supply Hardware for
$34.99 ($5 off) last weekend. I don't seem 'em much on Ebay, though,
either.

As far as decorations, I think I'll skip the solar powered Frog and
Squirrel... ;{)

I was wondering what you're doing on R.P. since I don't remember reading any
messages from you regarding fish, ponds, filters etc. I don't recall you
replying to any fish/pond messages of mine. Do you have a pond?

Come on Maxx, it's time to commit and become one with the Porg:

I was draged here by the crosspost to AFN, but I stayed for the reasons
below... };8)

Do you have a pond?


Not yet... I'm currently looking into all of myt options that are

## There are others on this NG who also live in the north. You'll learn a
lot here. :-)

We're talking about Grande-Prairie, Alberta (Canada) here, where things
tend to get a "little cold" in the winter, and where my home is
essential built on the recovered swamp land (long story).


## You can always keep an indoor tub or tank of some kind to keep fish over
the winter. That would be a real hassle thought I would think. Here in TN
they live over easily outdoors, even in small pools (I use cheapo heaters if
they start to freeze over).

Fish might be out if I can't get the pond deep enough, and I'm not
looking forward to the whole heater option (electrcity is murder here).


## I think they recommend at least 1 to 2' below the frostline. That can
be pretty deep in the far north. Electricity isn't bad where I live so
small heaters are not a problem. You don't need fish to enjoy a pond.
There are so many critters natural to all areas your pond wouldn't be empty
of life for long. :-) The alternative would be to buy cheap expendable
fish every spring.

I had already killfiled the forged header but even if not
I would have been suspicious of such a hostile post as
the one you quoted (snipped). I know what's going on
here but generally ignore it.

Thanks for the head's up about Wal-Mart's solar
ornaments! Back to our regularly scheduled pond
discussion...

I picked up a Japanese solar lantern from Costco, wasn't quite what I
wanted at the time. Then it got dark and I discovered the light part
flickers so it looks like a real candle.


Seen, only because of someone's reply.
