  1. Switching to an EV is the environmentally positive change you can make today
  2. ^I've got the electricity under the carpet too. I'll switch it on next next week if the sun is shining.
  3. ^No problem, fina. Anybody needing a plant seed is welcome, yourself included. There's also some wine yeast and beer yeast as well, but please don't mention the stuff that's working away in the blackcurrant squash at the mo' You'll get me at 07799 038218 or shetlandgeorge@gmail.com
  4. And now it's not just yeast. Now it's got a (very, very, very) old tin of fruit in syrup that's been poured into the jug and given a wee shoogle. No doubt it'll carry on working for a while before I try a wee swallow. Or a big swallow. Or a right guzzle.
  5. ^The jury's back in now, but please, please, please don't tell them that I let youknow
  6. ^I believe you're right, whereas Westminster shouts and bawls all the way. Not only about the Shetland Space Centre.
  7. Hmmm....... sez it all.......
  8. I've just checked the prices stated by EDF on https://www.edfenergy.com/electric-cars/costs where they charge 26p per kWh for, as stated, a Tesla vehicle. So why the difference?
  9. At the moment, I've got some Saccharomyces Cerevisiae working away in the jar.
  10. ^I understand that at present it costs about 30p per kWh so after a full charge it will cost £20 or £30 from totally empty to completly full, and understand that will probably take you fifty or sixty miles along the road. Is that good or bad coz I don't know? How much does it cost to charge an electric car?
  11. I think that they're coming around to do my road about forty-six years after God's died
  12. And it must be considered just what form of internet protocol address is prefered for correct usage. Public, private, static or dynamic?
  13. ^The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization that aims to maintain international peace and security. It does not necessarily mean that they'll do anything useful, in any way at all, but they will still be able to do something unlike........... They're quite unlikely to know just what the problem caused by COVID-16 is either. That's my thought, anyway
  14. 35 ways to know that you’re Scottish
  15. ^Hmmm...... It's been done on Boris Johnson now, too. He's about as much use as auld Charlie, while a huge amount of worthwhile people like doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers etc have got nothing. They're the peeps that look after us, unlike....... Pomp and circumstance comes to mind.
  16. Hmmm......... There's a very big chance that really important things will around us pretty quickly. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Scottish Independence
  17. On the ninth of Febuary this year, Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall got their first COVID-19 jag, just a wee while before any of us. It would be interesting to see them justify that.
  18. The COVID-19 vaccination card, brought out in England and Wales, contains a record of someone’s vaccination and a reminder of their second appointment date, but it does not contain secure personal information so it cannot prove who was vaccinated. Is it really worth having?
  19. ^An awful lot more than Westminster.
  20. George.

    Hom brew?

    Found out two things that, IMHO, are splendid to put in the brew. Nettles and dandelions are great but there are two things that I think are the best. Rosehip and heather. They need to be harvested at about September or October but almost all of it can be lifted off the side of the road, i.e free, and if it's free it'll definitely be the tastiest. Tomorrow there'll be a new brew going on. 75% dark rye, 25% barley and because there's no usable heather or rosehip around at this time of year it'll be cheap as chips oranges and some smoked wood, hopefully a bit of either oak or mahogany (coz
  21. ^As I understand it, it will be a wee while yet until we're back to where we used to be. As of 2/4/2021 things will get easier, and as of 26/4/2021 beer gardens will be able to open. Don't think that there'll be many coming in on a cruiser for a while yet and to me that's good. Covid in Scotland: Nicola Sturgeon lays out roadmap out of lockdown
  22. It appear that Faroese Telecom are going to have a major part in 5G within Shetland.
  23. ^And what was the biggest part that we had to pay for? The union flag.
