Council Cut Backs Makes Flooding Inevitable In Places

The need for water to be conserved does sometimes seem an extreme message when we are surrounded by flooding and rivers overflowing as we’ve experienced again this winter. The problem in the villages and surrounding towns is that not enough budget is kept aside by councils to dredge the water run offs and drainage gulleys. This sort of thing used to be done as a matter of course but constraints dictate this not to be the case. Of course, when…

Global Warming, Ice Age Repeats

There are many things about living in this very developed country that upset many young people. They are constantly suffering anxieties about global warming and the effect our lifestyle is having on the planet. Whenever it rains we are warmed of the consequences of too much rain. I do understand they have great concerns about changes to weather patterns and the rising sea levels which are affecting the polynesian nations particularly. There were planetary influences billions of years ago –…

Date Time By The Watering Hole

In the good old days – especially if one worked in a government office, there would be copious amounts of tea brought round to each floor and office by the ever cheerful tea lady – tea and the latest gossip, there was nothing that woman couldn’t find out.  Officers and managers were treated like gods by everyone, but particularly the tea lady.  Then eventually in the late 1970s when economies were looked for, came the communal kitchen and meeting room…

Broken Dam Causes Serious Water Loss

In previous years it has been a problem when water has run short due to reservoirs not being kept topped up to maximum levels.

Sufficient Water Here, Despite Extreme Weather

The very strange weather of the last few years has now started to form a rather interesting pattern. Very very wet seasons with localised flooding, followed by extremely hot months with no rain for weeks. We have to eventually refrain from wasting water and over consumption. When we think of really awful winters of 1947 and 192/1963 tragically terrible with blizzards throughout the USA, Canada and UK – eventually reaching Europe with devastating consequences. The months of heavy snow fall…

Futuristic Water Cooler Spotted In 1966 TV Show

I was very happily watching an old Avengers episode the other day – one filmed btweeen 1964 and 1967, so around 1966. That in itself is not the news . . . . what I noticed in the ‘London’ headquarters of a fantastic global ‘money market’ was a water cooler bottle on a plumbed in platform. How about that! I had watched that episode hundreds of times in the last two years and never noticed that feature before. It must…

Professional Company Needed For Real Spring Clean

We really have had some amazingly awful weather this winter. The same as the previous one actually. It makes the job of keeping everywhere clean and tidy so much more of a challenge. Just when we think the worst of the blustery weather has departed, it comes rushing back. Not only does it batter the fences and bins etc. it rips leaves off the shrubs – they’re not supposed to shed foliage, it’s meant to be growth time. The mess…
