Closed due to a power cut and we on mount pleasent also lost electric for a few hours .
And all because we had some bad weather this country is getting worse we pay more for ? Well everything and we receive less in the way of service and reliability !
I find the way this great country is going pityfull I despair of where it will all end .

Thanks Silenzi smile

Chin up Slim - it was fairly unique weather we had here today. I'm well in to my middle-age and I can't remember such an odd weather day! The country isn't going totally to the dogs either - just the media would have you believe that. HG still rammed with good people, generous to a fault smile

I swear half of this forum must live on that road with the frequency in which it gets mentioned?

It does make me chuckle when people complain about the cost of gas/electric etc. Nobody forces you to use it. If you do not want it then go off-grid. For me, it's outstandingly cheap when you realise the costs involved in producing (or extracting in the case of gas) and distributing it to properties.

I can guarantee it would cost you more in candles and be less effective than it would be to turn on a light switch.

This country faces the chance of an energy shortage, which in fairness it already has. The usage is already supported via imports, yet people cry like little girls over fracking? They do not want wind farms as they are an eyesore? They do not want nuclear as it could give off radiation (whilst they use a microwave)?. They seemingly want power to be generated by 'hopes and dreams', they need to drag their head out of their arse and sort themselves out to be honest.

It's the 'greens' that push prices up, as well as the fraudsters/criminals and non payers who are, on the whole, ethnics. That is not a comment intended to get people flapping, that is first hand fact from someone within the industry.

Apparantly fracking could be the way forward. America does this and could provide Britain with shale gas. The fylde coast could provide this to us without importing it, as could a lot of areas in the uk. It is reckoned that energy will be cheaper. I don't believe that, look at fuel costs, creeping up again. The problem is we all pay our bills (not everyone ). How often do bills go down, NEVER.

Factually incorrect, they went down the other year. By that I'm talking unit prices to consumers, not whole sale prices...

America have the most successful 'frack' field in the World thus far, the Bakken. I have over the last few years been invested in a number of companies that have played certain parts of that, mainly surrounding the Mississippi Lime formation.

It took America in excess of 20 years of trial and development to unlock the potential of shale. Each geological formation has different requirements to unleash it, but just sticking a vertical drill bit in the ground is anything from £6m -£60m with no chance of success (although increased with 3d over 2d shooting!). The big daddies to come will be Poland. It's the horizontal fracking that costs the big money and can increase a vertical flow rate by 30/40 fold. I also want to point out that the crap about 'chemicals' is largely rubbish too. 98.9% of a typical frack fluid is water, of the remaining 1.1% most of that is sand. SLE have created a frack fluid that is safe to drink.

I genuinely get really annoyed by people who think energy companies are mugging them off when they ALL will insulate your walls/roof for FREE which naturally isn't in their interests is it? Nasty energy companies, charging us for what we use, often after the event? Do you see people walking out of a generic supermarket with 3 months of food and drink then having the nerve to come back after 1/4 of a year and dispute that they ate/drank it? No.

It's simple. If you do not want to pay for ANYTHING in life then do NOT use it.

Anyway, Sainsburys is open as normal to day. Part of the roof gave way during yesterday's storm, resulting in flooding.

Blimey, I hope nobody was hurt. I think they've been doing some roof on the work just recently as well.
