Alek, well done on the fund raising. You and your family have another BIG achievement to be proud of. Hi to all you guys from The Netherlands, Europe - Mickel

Complete time-lapse video of the day is available from: webcam1 - webcam2 - webcam3. Just over $400 was raised for Celiac Disease Research - thank you all that donated in person and online.

Yes, Hulk'in Limeade Stand is over ... but I'll leave two of the webcams plus the X10 controls up for a few days. I'll also add some time-lapse video when I have a chance.

Lenonade Stand shutting down?

They were both Biker Dudes and Power Rangers!

The webcams sometimes drop out images ... hang in there as it usually catches up within 20-30 seconds.

I can't seem to see Cam1 or Cam2 images. It's 23:40 in the UK and I'm currently on nightshift, so I'm enjoying seeing the sunshine in YOUR garden!

I just checked out you lawn mowing. You're pretty fast with that mower. When are you coming over to do my lawn??? ___grins___ ... Oh wait... I just figured that I have an apartment with a balcony. Woops... I am out now. It's running midnight here. Have a great weekend! - Mickel.

Sprinklers went on across the street, so we had to re-position webcam2 and lost power for a couple of minutes ...

What happened to webcam number two?

There's a "Metric" link above/right of the weather data - click on that to see in Metric Units - 87F is 30C ... warm!

Good luck with the stand. What's 87F in Centigrade? Paz (from Seo-Guy)

Yes, I have the images archived and will be putting togather some videos of the action today ... kinda like the one of me mowing the lawn or optionally watch growing grass or when I did my stamped concrete patio. And Robert, I asked the Hulk about being genetically engineered as part lime, and he said "Hulk Green, Hulk Strong, Hulk SMASH!"

34 - ( wrote at 2006_06_10_14:43:14.880:
Are you collecting the screens shots so that you can assemble them into a movie later on?

33 - ( wrote at 2006_06_10_14:39:12.898:
This brings up an interesting question. Is the Hulk genetically part lime? Hey Alek, it's Robert. :)

32 - Alek says at 2006_06_10_14:18:54.603:
I've been sampling the various batches, and it's sweet and tart. Dash of Tequila adds a nice punch ... and we've got plenty left for the Big Kids that stop by.

Are you running low on Tequila yet - I've seen some BIG KIDS come by.

Alek, awesome pictures coming from your cam! It felt like I was right there. Too bad I couldn't have a taste from that SMASHING Hulkin' Limeade. - Mickel

Nice lawn mowing job ... but you missed a spot Alex!

Thanh from Texas donated $101 and for his "YOU NAME IT!!!" requested a $100 glass of Limeade - you got it!

How many Limes have you bought and will Hulk be able to SMASH them all on Saturday?!? ___)

Had to wash my wife's Toyota Sienna XLE MiniVan today ... so some funny footage from webcam3 as the boys ... uhhhhh .... "helped" me. Dirk was busy make soap while Kyle hosed down Dirk instead of the car. Here's video of the whole thing! ;-)

21 - Alek says at 2006_06_06_23:15:42.366:
Thanks for the SMASHING audio recording Jim - other can listen to it here. Hope to "see you" Saturday Jim ... or I guess technically the other way around when we have the webcams viewing our Hulk'in Limeade Stand! ;-) BTW, too bad I didn't have this up a few weeks earlier when Hazel Miller dropped by.

Hi Alek, I really like your giant Hulk family member. I have an MP3 called 'Nobody Loves the Hulk'. It was originally recorded in 1969 by a garage band called the Traits. It a typical 60's pop number that has some fun lyrics in it. If you like, I can send you it to use for a future project, or just to listen to & be inspired for your next Hulk adventure. Its about 2mb in size. I'm sure the kids will get a buzz out of it too :) Good luck on Saturday! Jim.

Appreciate the hacking testing - glad to see that the filters worked. I also have a profanity filter - lemonade stands are family activity, so lets keep it clean ... or otherwise the HULK will SMASH you!

Dirk says we should also sell "Tony the Tiger" OJ. Yea, the sprinkler's were on - here's some condensed time-lapse video of the of the evening and I happened to notice a neighbor's dog really liked 'em - here's a snapshot. I also put together some footage from the basement lemonade stand webcam including a picture of me asking Internet surfers to turn on zone #2.

Nice sunrise on your front lawn and I just saw someone walking their dog.

11 - Alek says at 2006_06_04_21:56:47.258:
OK - I think I found a reasonable balance of lights. Ended up with 60 Watt Red/Green lights on the front lawn for the four zones. I then have a 40 Watt white bulb pointing close to vertical that is illuminating the Hulk'in Limeade sign ... and yes, it is in Hulk'in green paint. Here are all the lights on and here is just the sign light which stays on continously.

10 - Alek says at 2006_06_04_21:27:13.549:
Those lights didn't look so bright during the day, but yea, they are blinding now. I started with 85 Watt white spots. Have cycled down to 40 Watt whites and now have 60 Watt Red/Green in there. OOOOOPS - just realized I had Low-Lux amplification enabled on webcam3 - just turned that off and MUCH better - going outside to do some more testing.

9 - ( wrote at 2006_06_04_20:32:15.296:
Yeah, that would do it :p I've been watching you put up those lights - They're really bright!

8 - Alek says at 2006_06_04_20:29:52.387:
I do have a cron job that periodically does a "flippit ZONE ON" for zone-4 since otherwise the Lava Lamp cools down too much. From a "cold-start", it actually takes about an hour for it to start flowing/oozing. I've been using the manual X10 remote quite a bit today for testing purposes, so that can toggle zones without the counter incrementing. The numbers shown are actual changes by Internet folks.

7 - ( wrote at 2006_06_04_20:09:04.580:
Is it just me, or do the Lava Lamp and Beer Sign turn back on by themselves? I watched the control counter, and it didn't increase (after refresh).

6 - Alek says at 2006_06_04_19:49:54.315:
Yea, that is a (nearly empty) bottle of Jose Tequila ... here is a "clown-around" shot of me with it ... and I bet if you drank enough of this, you would turn green! I was adding some signage in the front yard along with a few lights. And yes, I added a "funky" HULK cursor - do people think that looks dumb or what?

5 - ( wrote at 2006_06_04_14:39:22.774:
What are you doing in the front yard? And what-up with the crazy HULK cursor?

If I drink lemon or lime ade from the HULK, will I turn green?
