splendid post. I will make sure I bring this idea when I deploy.

Anybody got any storage sheds w/o electricity that could use a little light during the daytime?

This is the kind of human ingenuity which gives me faith in mankind's survivability.

And so it goes...

“Sometimes the Bible in the hand of one man is worse than a whisky bottle in the hand of (another)… There are just some kind of men who – who’re so busy worrying about the next world they’ve never learned to live in this one, and you can look down the street and see the results.” - To Kill A Mockingbird (Atticus Finch)

“Almost any sect, cult, or religion will legislate its creed into law if it acquires the political power to do so.” - Robert Heinlein
