  1. Whoops, sorry, didn't see the pin symbol, my bad.😮
  2. My wife sends letters, about three per week and over 200 xmas cards! I send letters because some interactions with gov. can only be done by pro forma applications sent through the post e.g., blue badge application.
  3. The deficit wouldn't happen if there wasn't such an overrun on every single project, (most of the projects unnecessary of course).
  4. ...........and yet they are going to charge a lot more for wood? I always thought burned well so surely, they should be trying for more wood not charging nearly 200% more and therefore making folk less willing to take it there.
  5. She'll pay for it from her leaving bonus.
  6. I've never rented a private dwelling where carpets etc are renewed. It's take it or leave it there's plenty of other takers. Over the years that we have had our own house we just have to wait for renewals until we can afford it, sometimes never.
  7. Well, that really is our point of contention. I believe that most scientists are genuinely striving for the truth but so often their theories are just that, attempts to get to the truth, quantum theory, make-up of the atom to name a few. (I won't bore you with all the theories that fairly recently have expanded, altered or been trashed). I don't believe that there is a definitive answer to understanding weather patterns yet, nor a definitive answer to what causes them to change, but, I do believe at some point we will have a clearer understanding. Thanks for the rational discussion, I always put my view forwards in the hope of learning something and modifying it accordingly. 😎
  8. How do you know? Sun spots, the Earth's recessional wobble, All the natural items such as volcanoes, forest fires, too many to mention, all have an effect on weather patterns. How on Earth can one isolate a specific gas or item of pollution as the principal cause?
  9. I thought we were talking about weather and floods and ice and rain and snow not a very, very small temperature change which has happened before industry many times, skating on the Thames anyone? Tropical vegetation and shells on the point of Ayre? Sea levels that covered most of the Northern plain? Volcanos that spew more pollutants in one day than mankind in a year, forest fires that do the same, countries that spew chemicals into the rivers and lakes, rockets and wars that kill, use Earths resources and devastate countries, flora and fauna and soil. That's fine just corrupt and disrupt ways of life, it doesn't matter nature will win in the end whether I have an i/c car or not so go ahead with your banning of fossil fuels on a little rock in the Irish sea but don't dare challenge China, Russia, USA, Brazil, Middle East, India, Pakistan or any of the other polluters that spew out more poison in a few minutes than the IOM does in a year. I'm off to feed the horse so that I can go shopping and blow the methane it produces, (much worse than CO2 for the atmosphere).
  10. Why then were there major climatic upheavals before the industrial revolution? Look back especially in the 1800s.
  11. Ginger is a good restaurant; we go every Friday.
  12. I am satisfied with the service and judging by a lot of 21st century, 'innovations', I would rather stay in the 20th century thank you.
