Thanks, Diane.  I have a question.

I posted a comment on Chris Stratton's "Our First Year with Solar Panels"  post, asking him some questions.  I received an email from 

mail@homeenergypros.org that partially shows his response - but I can't figure out how or where to see the full response.  There's a link in the email that just goes back to his original post, with the comments below, but that's all.

Thank you Diane. Is it fine to share my articles about improving the efficiencies of water filtration systems with links to my website?
