**Tuesday I helped the Third Sun guys install part of the Dennis Solar Project.  I missed most of the day because of work, and they had already accomplished a lot, but it was great to start to actually SEE how all these pieces fit together.  I think the Green Zone is going to be a wonderful addition to the learning that happens here.

**Talked in class about what we need to set up our test run with the solar hot water heater.  Talked about what everything was, where we all thought we'd find it, and how to best assemble it.  Made a plan that Ehren and I would do the shopping and then we'd all start working to put the monster together.
