Just got back from weed whacking a yard to keep weeds off the electric fence. The voltmeter tells me 8,000 volts by the energizer and 7,900 at the other end of the fence - and the land owner says he hasn't seen or heard about bear in the area for the last few weeks! The bees were so busy with the goldenrod and whatever else is blooming that they didn't pay any attention to me. Life is good. Now where's the beer?
