The sun is shining… yea… but I am not getting to enjoy it as I am fighting bronchitis and an upper respiratory infection. Seems with the rain and all that comes with it… mold.. mildew.. I was blessed to have avoided it this long… but saw the ENT doctor and he gave me meds and I will be better real soon. So for now staying in and resting and taking my Rx. My pharmacist who is a very special lady asked if I had had both pneumonia shots and I said I had had one. Then she proceeded to make me aware that about a year ago they came out with another one to be taken also and she recommended that when I am well that I get it given my history with bronchitis bouts. So maybe y’all already knew or maybe not but I just thought I would tell you so you can be aware of it’s existence and take advantage of it too! And when I am well I will go back to her and get mine. Isn’t it wonderful how God sends people into our lives to help us along the way!!
The SAMSON windmill is an open geared windmill. The SAMSON was a very good windmill but required relatively frequent lubricating because of its bearing design. The Samson windmill was made by the Stover Company was formed in 1881, in Freeport, Illinois, USA, although its principal Daniel C. Stover had been manufacturing and inventing various machinery from the 1860’s. Windmills were not added to the company production list until 1883. Daniel Stover together with his brother, had patented a windmill in 1872, but sold the manufacturing rights. Windmills started in the United States in the mid 1800’s when a new style of windmill was developed that comprised a small rotor set on top of a skeletal steel structure. At first these were using a few wooden blades, but soon became more technologically advanced, using steel blades that would fold back in very high winds to avoid damage to blades and any connected equipment. These were used primarily in the American West as water pumps to draw up water for cattle or crop irrigation.
Wishing y’all a blessed day and a HAPPY WINDMILL WEDNESDAY… HWW!!!!
