Palo Alto Free
Free: Geranium (Sunnyvale, CA Ponderosa Park) 16m - This added a nice spot of color to our front porch but I'm making room for some other things. It needs a bigger pot or a place to grow in a yard and lots of love. If you miss your pickup time, I will move to the next person.
Free: Bug Zapper. Needs repair (Palo Alto downtown north.) 11h - Only four months old. No warranty. Worked GREAT on mosquitoes until high voltage failed. UV light works fine. I have fixed these in the past, but just don’t have time or patience for this one. It has all discrete components no surface mount stuff. If you are skilled in electronic repair, it’s usually just an electrolytic capacitor, a diode or HV cap in the voltage multiplier or one of the flyback circuit transistors that fail in these. About a 30-60 minute fix. The bulbs are pricey. This bulb is young. Maybe can use in other zappers.
