A Tentative Return To Blogging
My apologies for the lack of blogging. My few days 'rest' (the first in nearly 5 years of daily posting) have morphed into a few weeks so quickly - encouraged by the lovely weather we've all be having this summer.
Thanks to all who emailed to ask after my wellbeing. It's lovely to know so many of you were concerned.
Because I'm committed to card playing quite a bit these coming few months, I've decided I won't be posting every day in the immediate future but nearer the referendum date that may well change. Can't have the opposition getting away with endless nonsense can we?
Here's an interesting link Apogee sent me. To quote him: "Different story to what the press here tells us." Indeed it is.
The past few days I've had the company of German friends and they mentioned the cost of their electricity and Merkle's promise to chop the €20 billion her government pay 'green' investors every year. She'll probably get re-elected on 22 September on that promise alone.
In the past few weeks I've had a few trips around Scotland and one to deepest England. Once again I was horrified to see how many wind turbines blot our lovely landscape. Is nobody long-sighted enough to realise, when these monstrous structures come to the end of their productive lives?
Seems these turbines will be cluttering the countryside for a generation or more and when they're redundant I doubt if they'll be removed, don't you?
