There isn't a problem with laying the infrastructure for Gas and using it, because it can be augmented with locally produced Gas which is compatible. Obviously reserves of natural Gas are the same as oil reserves in that they are ulimately finite, but alongside building the natural gas infrastructure it is entirely possible to invest in manufactured Methane, and benefit from derivitive technologies. Like good rocket fuel.
I wonder why the Russians can't find their rocket? You can't exactly lose something that big, it must have a black box beacon. Bit like the Titanic I suppose, no one ever expects anything to go wrong with such technology. At least the old shuttles were re-usable and didn't dump scrap metal everywhere to clear up after. Might need to give one a polish and a lick of paint before October!
It's interesting, my electrician put in a double light socket in my renovation project which only turns on one light, Also the toilet extractor doesn't come on when you put the light on! In fact it sits there doing nothing.
I guess when it comes down to it you might have had a mouse in the wiring, and it fancied nibbling through the green wire. I don't think they are color blind! Besides, it didn't have a spacesuit, so when it realised it was going for a space walk, it bit through the green wire... Might have been a Rat or a Mole even... Honestly us Brits do have a warped sense of humour.
Reminds me that my dog when we first had her, managed to get my only pair of evening shoes that I saved up to buy, she chewed all the satin off one heel. Anyway I broke my ankle a few years before and it has a Titanium plate in it, so I couldn't wear them anyway. Strictly flats from then on.
She also nearly chewed through the cable on this laptop 6 years ago, it was only a year old then.
I smoothed out out all the copper wires, and put electrical tape round the part she chewed. It's worked fine ever since. She also chewed the knob off the gearstick in my Husbands car, He wasn't happy. Not a good idea to leave a Raptor alone that long.
I watched the very sensitive documentary on America's death penalty, and the broken lives it leaves behind. Honestly the Guillotine is more humane than allowing someone to suffer for 6 minutes. It's instant, because it cuts the spinal column and shocks the brain dead. You still get twitching like animals after having a bolt put in their head. That's even more humane than an electrocution or a drug death. Hanging has the same effect if it's done properly, a lot of twitching, but the person has had a quick death.
Even the Japanese self ...what's the word? (immoliation I think, I don't know where my dictionary is right now) was considered an honourable end, it was assisted by someone as they were an hunourable person, in that their head was cut off immediately the cermonial part was complete. You would have to ask a Japanese person really.
I went to a Baptist Church in Worthing when I was a teenager, when I stayed with my Brother there. I was introduced to the son of the last executioner in Britain and we went out together for a while.. He was a lovely Guy, a very moral and correct young man, but was still scarred from his fathers involvement with the death trade.
I don't understand why any country uses the death penalty. I did write my thoughts on it in a previous post. The real challenge to a Christian is to forgive others as God has forgiven you. To exact a revenge killing does not honour Christ. Our faith is built on the innocence of Christ when executed by a political game of shuttlecock.
The Brits decided against the death penalty because the justice system could not countanance the number of people who were then later proved to be innocent. The American people surely can't endorce their justice system to make the death row, scapegoats for their inadequate legal and policing process.
Sorry my spelling and grammar is not good at the moment.
I wonder comparitively how much money will be lavished on sorting out New York, compared to re-building New Orleans. I have a sneaky feeling that Hecate aka tha Statue of Liberty is going to lose a hand and some of her crown! She might be deemed unsalvageable after this storm.
Why not build a golden bull and bear to represent your purely mercenary attitude to life. Your stock markets, sub prime debt and underhand interference in other people's politics have caused so many wars. Mainly to keep your economy running on oil. I can only think selling so much sub prime, then packaging it with ordinary debt and selling it to France was a Trojan to bring down Europe and the Euro... Bankers in high places!
We often use a W in stead of the B.
It reminds me of that apocolyptic film with Kevin Kostner... Waterworld.
What a cool cat... I mean the boat! I loved the film for the sheer ingenuity of the designers. I could never understand why it didn't make it as a great film. I thought it was epic. I would love to see ships built that combine sail power again like they did with the first steam clippers. If the fuel is hydrogen cell, it might be better to use steam engines again, they are beautiful. Bring back those engineers, they were making all those engines lovingly by hand then, and they still work.
By the way, time is not a commodity, it's a gift from God! Everyone experiences time differently, and if God is laying a burden on someone, they have time weighing very heavily on them. That's why Jesus says, 'Come to me all who are heavy laden, for my yoke fits well'.
As a Master Carpenter, Jesus would have made the essential bit of kit for the worker, their own personal yoke, fashioned and fitted for them to bear a burden of great weight, without chafing. It was to distribute the load and make it possible to walk upright. It was up to the worker to set his load in balance. We are the ones who have to learn to get our balance right, God gives us the means to do it, that's all.
We are meeting some relatives from 4/5 generations back who have come to Jersey from Canada today. My Husband has spent the last 2 weeks researching all our connexions back to about 1600, so we can patch in our family trees. I think they have a common Great Great. We need to know which branch they are as there are 3 main Le Gresley Families, and depending on which one they are, we will take them to their Ancestors Parish. They found My Husband because He is a Blue Badge Guide. So they will get the Blue Badge tour today! I need to get myself sorted to meet them.
Well I actually put some make-up on. Turns out we don't seem to be related. My Husband just spent half an hour with them at their Hotel to see where our wires cross, and they can't find any. Anyway he will be back to pick me up in about 15 minutes. I said 'Oh, well they will just have to be friends then'.
They will still get a nice tour round. It's normally about 100 quid a day to hire a private Blue Badge, although my Husband is only allowed to work 8 hours a week, so he doesn't take these jobs, He gives them to his mates. I might write a bit about it tonight.
Well, we have met some wonderful people, had a superb day, and went to the food fair this evening and had a great meal together. So we still can't work out if or how we are related, or if this is a common ancester but who cares. They are the sort of people anyone would love to have as relatives. We decided to adopt each other. We might go take a trip to Canada, and they might come back here in a couple of years.
It's bank holiday monday tomorrow, so If they have decided to stay until tuesday we will take them to the Jersey Archive and see if we can get more ancestor information. I am well tired.
Have a sweet dream world, and wake up refreshed.
