Airport Chatter - a. Went to the airport to pick people up Air Tran airlines and they, the airline, moved 3 days ago to terminal 2. Surprise! Then for some of us that have not used the airport for a couple of months, you pay with your ticket at an automated machine before going to exit the parking lots. You get the ticket when going in, use it to pay for your time and then use it to put into the last machine before getting the bar to lift and let you free again. It was a mess with people having to back up out of the exit lines and then scratching their heads to figure how they were going to get out. Also, while they are working on the area for arrivals at the Alaska term. they are only letting shuttles, buses and taxis through, you walk down to the area to assist your in-coming family/friends to find you in the parking lot.

b. One correction to the SJD Terminal 2 move. I talked to the United manager the other day and he says that United continues to operate at both terminals. The legacy Continental flights to Houston and Newark are still at Terminal 1. The legacy United flights to Chicago, Denver, LAX and SFO are operating from the new Terminal 2 but check-in is still in the "Alaska" part of terminal 2. It will stay like this until the first quarter of 2013 when the entire operation will be in Terminal 1 following some renovations for the enlarged United. Steve

c. This could change, but I just picked someone up yesterday on AA and they came into Term #1. I had called AA so you may want to call the airline if you are picking someone up or, for that matter, dropping someone off. That would be a LONG walk if you were wrong. - Courtesy Baja Pony Express

Stop - Don't Throw It Out - What you don't want, someone else will. Save your unwanted items, clothing, household items for the tianguis in early December and help support Kittie Heaven.

Save The Dates - Nov. 15-17 - A Spay and Neuter Clinic is scheduled with the wonderful vets from Colorado once again giving so generously of their time and expertise. But help is always needed. It is very satisfying and truly fun to participate. There are many ways of helping and you can choose yours. Or perhaps you would rather just acknowledge the kindness of these volunteers and bring lunch one day? Soft drinks and water are also needed and appreciated. Or you could pick up an extra package of paper towel or bleach on your next costco trip. Help us continue to reduce the population of unwanted cats and dogs from our streets. bajakitties [- at -] yahoo.com

Sun Pumps 1,200 Watt DC Solar Well Pump Controller - High-power pump controller, intended for pumping higher water volumes from greater depths. This model is designed to work with brushless DC pump motors only.

SunPumps PCB series Pump Controllers are high-quality, micro-processor controlled, DC-power converters designed as the interface between a DC-powered pump and the DC power source. The DC source may be solar modules, batteries, or systems using wind generators. The main purpose of the SunPumps PC-series controller is to maximize the total daily water delivery while providing protection for the pump as well as the power source. It boosts the current of solar modules in low sunlight conditions while holding the voltage of the solar modules at the maximum power point. This allows a pump to start earlier in the morning and stay running later into the evening.
