**Had dinner with Farmers (not unusual, I am one) with Kate to bring everyone up to speed on what's been happening this summer. Referenced them to this site. Reminded me to update Miller Farms site.

**Met with everyone to decide on the best way to mount the solar water heater on the roof, decided that it should not be flush to discourage water block and ice build up. Looked into commercial roof mountings for water heater, didn't find much, only a few frames apparently designed for a flat roof. One interesting find was that quite a few solar water heaters are mounted vertically which offers another possibility.

**Looked into PV mounts for our roof.http://www.realgoods.com/renew/shop/product.cfm/dp/1000/sd/1007/ts/1013841 I'm guessing that the Gr-01 is what we're looking for. Our panel is a Solarex Mx64. Solarex was bought by BP. Not sure if current mounts are backwards compatible.

**Looked into Heat Exchangers, came maddeningly close to finding a hard statistc. Found some interesting formulae and statistics on shell and tube exchangers, found full exchangers but not components. Pthhb. Most useful sites: http://www.engineersedge.com/heat_exchanger/heat_exchanger_menu.shtml, and http://www.cheresources.com/uexchangers.shtml
