I was surprised to read today, as it hasn't previously been reported in any national or local media, that we faced national power blackouts on Sunday October 19th!!  No one noticed that around nine million homes worth of electricity had simply "disappeared" after four nuclear stations had shut down and Didcot went up in flames. 


No one noticed because Britain's wind turbines carried on turning, powering almost 25% of our country!  Yes, 25%!!  It was a historic event that went almost unnoticed; one revolution after another quietly secured our energy needs. The lights didn't go out. We have wind energy to thank for that.

It brought a smile to my face this afternoon when I read the title of this post and the person who had created it. Thankyou JC for brightening up my day.

Thanks for your, ahem, "constructive" comment Old Fart...

It brought a smile to my face when I saw that you didn't answer mine and Lynne's question on the migration thread.
