Now that's a good idea, good job Wyre BC

Have been changing streetlights for more energy saving lamps when I came across this sign. Ideal for houses with kids, kids do not always look where they walk. Stop owners letting their dogs crap on the pathways and green areas. It blinds kids and is disgusting.

Wind Power, 1796

Over 200 years ago, here in Thornton wind was the main power. Now we seem to have gone full circle. We are told we need to harness the wind again. The trouble is that the new windmills, are quite large, dominate the skyline and are quite pointy. The debate goes on locally and nationally. I can understand the need for alternative power but I can see the need for a beautiful place to remain so.

Where is the Power really going.

I have been thinking of this for a while. As us human beans get on with just paying our power bills. There are others that have been given power and then use that to gamble with our well being. We have to pay for our power using, and now it seems our power giving as well. These forth commin elections could shift the balance of power, hopefully less gas and more of a spark. We have been led to think we now have the power yet we seem powerless as to the cuts that will bleed for many years. The Big Society?? As Ed Milliband said, what about the Fair Society?

Oil be alright??

Or will we? With the impending doom prescribed to us, how much can we do without oil. The oilmen get fat with the profits they make from this trade. In a way we all profit with the use of oil. Manufacturers of cars try to make their machines as fuel misers. Yet some folk still seem to want to race around at full throttle and it is costing them dearly. Many need fuel as a lifeline, for warmth and transport to work the land to feed us. Then why do the islands have to pay so much extra for something on their doorstep. Councilor Wills wants a micro_refinery built, that is very sensible. Sending oil to Scotland and back at inflated prices is madness. But if that happens, will the petrol dealers make even more profit? Again, time for some action. Write to Councilor Wills may be a good start.

Where else would you need to be.

What a cracking day. Since I have been here on my break the weather has been fantastic. Even if the weather was poor my visit would still be fantstic. The folk I have met certainly make the place bright all the time. Lynne and Jim from Fort Charlotte guesthouse have always offered great hosptality, Mike, Alex and the rest of the Coastguard team with their passion and love for where they serve, Inga and Mandy for their support of this home they call Shetland. Not forgetting as well, Amy. All these folk and many more think this is a great place, so it is with all the right ingredients.
