In the seventies, I lived in Nigeria and made friends with a Dutch couple. The husband was born in Surinam and worked for a US company. He spoke English with a American accent. The wife, born in Holland spoke only a few words of English. We found that if we spoke in our native broad Yorkshire dialect, we would communicate quite well.

Same people make Tetley tea bags. I lost interest when they moved the headlights off the grill and put plastic on the dashboard.

My wife and I are both from Yorkshire where Yorkshire pudding is served as a separate dish, before the meat & Veg. However the quality of the beef improved greatly when we moved to this side of the pond

Another point is that presently, 95 % of the worlds hydrogen supply is made from natural gas or coal. I realize it can be made by electrolysis of water but that is not efficient and is only used when ultrapure hydrogen is required.

Is the $10 to send the batteries to Mexico? That's where most of them go to from USA. Environmentalists have shut down almost all the battery recycling plants here.

Did you see many birds around the wind farms? Maybe the birds in the area were already dead when you got there. In the sixties I hiked a lot on the North Yorkshire moors. I noticed that I never saw birds near the Fylingdales BMEWS radar. I later heard that microwave radiation fried then if they got too near. I also read that not painting windmills white reduces bird kill by 70%

Our first car was a 1939 Vauxhall 10-4. like this one It was in storage soon after it was made until the end of WW2. We got it around 1953, so although it was 14 years old, it was only on the road for 7 of those. It was the first British car to have monocoque (chassisless) construction. Also one of the first with "double dip" headlights and two tail lights.. Earlier ones had only one headlamp lit on low beam and often only one tail light. As a kid it seemed quite large!

My solar has been running almost five years. Including the tax break I got, it will have paid for itself by the end of this year. That does nor include the installation which I did myself for a couple of thousand for materials.

I grew up in a council estate in Yorkshire. When my dad got our first car, He rented a garage which was about a mile from the house. I remember walking with him when we put it away on a winters night. This was before antifreeze was common, so we had to drain the radiator at night or place a tiny kerosene heater under the oil pan and a rug over the engine. It was 1964 before we had a house with a garage. I often think how lucky I am now. The attached garage is 24'x26' I have a 30x50' shop in the back yard as well as a 15'x 50' RV shelter.
