More is still more

Still not settling well.

Just too many folk either not getting it of trying to make out of it.

With even more thinking fixes will be free and easy.

Hence I cannot resist sticking my oar in still.

BBC - Yukio Hatoyama's golden carrot

"The answer to climate change is nuclear power + electric cars."

At best not so much an answer as a very minor possible help in postponement.

I'd say fewer folk around wanting (or allowed... eek) to go elsewhere all the time might be closer to it, but with the politico-media Caravans of Carbon making their green elite - either deluded or venal - ways 1st class from one world venue to the next, if occasionally offset, only to pronounce but not practice, that doesn't seem likely.

We need much more fundamental appreciations of causes and effects... cures and consequences.

What we are getting at the moment from the greeleets is none of the above.


I have at last had to act to stop that darn buzzer.

Can't complain.

It is one that I myself have instituted.

It is there to remind to me to a) add at least one pack (+data) and/or an idea EVERY DAY to in future, and then blog it too (which will end up being twittered and a few other social net things too, by means I have long since forgotten and really need to find out about again).

This is because I have realised that the world and their goat (the boys want one having seen a pet of same in a French bar) have blogs and whatnot that share notions, ideas, etc, but very few create original stuff for these fine folk to point at or comment upon.

Now, that doesn't mean I won't be pointing all sorts of nifty stuff as well, but I do intend to stop weighing in so much on things that really just get my blood pressure up and really don't help (though shifting from some ill-qualified, often less than straight talkers to some well-qualified (by dint of self-evidently DOING), sincere DOERS and, their often terrific ideas or leads to better things.

Sorry this first is more of an 'why not' idea in waiting than anything special. But just patting comanies on the pack with +ve PR can make a difference.

Just Babel'd the product title and got: 'Saver d' Formerly'. I'm guessing that might mean it is a range intended for reuse. If so... kudos Yoplait.

Are you on the Map?

I need a dose of positivity after being waay too incensed by the antics of our political classes.

It is a nice little visual aid started (I'm pretty sure) by the lovely Karen of The Rubbish Diet.

Pretty sure that's not her with the beard, and I have, as yet, in my capacity as an ITiot, NO CLUE how to get it myself/ on there (it's a bit 'lean' on guidance for those over 50: who need a helping hand signing up for stuff), but I like the whole 'picture paints...' notion, and getting a handle on the location of fellow greenies might well lead to more beneficial hook ups in person over and above online.
