a cow's udders don't get frostbite in winter?

 

it can happen... we had very cold (continental) winters here in Bavaria in the past and cows spending a lot of time in the paddocks could get problems. Same can happen to the private parts of stallions so it's better to check regularly and make sure everything is allright.

I'd like to know what bus from Walls I should take because I need to be at work by 1pm. Or should I tell and say that I can't be able to go to work because I'm staying at Walls for couple of nights?

 

10am will get you to town for 11am

Is this what you are asking about?

The European Commission wants cities to be free of conventionally fuelled cars and greater investments to be made in rail, as part of a plan unveiled Monday to cut transport carbon emissions by 60 per cent in the European Union by 2050.

 

Questions have also been raised about the plan's price tag. Kallas said Monday that it will require an estimated 1.5 trillion euros (2.1 trillion dollars) in investments over the next four decades.

Iris Hawkins was on the radio Shetland News nearly two weeks ago saying she had come back from a meeting in Spain where she had been informed that there was 1.5 Trillion Euros available for carbon reduction projects throughout Europe but its never been reported by the rest of the Shetland media. I would have thought a figure of that magnitude available for reducing greenhouse gasses would have been worthy of a mention as Shetland is allegedly one of the worst greenhouse gas offenders in Europe and so much of the Shetland money is proposed to be spent on windmills which I would imagine would qualify for finacial help under the carbon reduction category.Why would this be ignored?

I would like to know why the reception on my kitchen radio varies from perfect to completely unlistenable depending on which sockets/light switches are on/off.

 

Kitchen light on and/or laptop plugged into kitchen socket = interference

Computer monitor in downstairs bedroom on = so much interference radio has to be switched off.

 

How could I fix this incredibly annoying problem?

^^ Does it happen with all radios? A different radio might be the quickest solution. I have several (same makes and very similar models) and while mains power on or off to other appliances doesn't affect them, all mobiles and Wi-fi does. No two are affected the same way though, they vary from not really detectable unless you make it a point to listen for it, to unlistenable, the racket is so constant and loud regardless of the volume setting.

We've only got the one radio - a new one to replace the old one which was stuck on BBC Radio 2. The same thing happened with the old radio. There is something weird with the electrics in this house - it used to be that if the cooker switch was off at the wall and you switched the light switch on in the kitchen, the cooker 'on' light would turn on. However, if you then turned on one of the hobs the light would switch off. They came by and replaced the cooker wall switch and that seems to have fixed that problem, but the radio is still an issue. :?

My laptop charger also makes the radio unlistenable, if in the same room. The same doesn't apply to any other charger I own. The laptop, with tft, also interferes with the radio signal, but to a much lesser degree. I've not looked into it specifically, but there is more to a laptop charger, or charging function, than merely a voltage drop and AC to DC change. For instance, a laptop charger doesn't work with a non sine wave inverter. Perhaps becasue it is clipping the signal, and the combination of clipped signals negates any continuous power supply......etc. :wink:
