I like wind turbines, always have. They have a very small physical footprint and in 50 years how many will still be there?As for them being a danger to aircraft, the ground is a constant danger, best avoided!

Richard, I have always wondered about the chidhood experience of the serving soldiers and what effect this has on their attitude to killing the enemy. I've always contended that those of us reared under bombardment in the middle of a war where millions died have a different world view to those reared in peacetime. We were conditioned very early on.

Warnings this morning from the banking organisation that oversees debt repayment, especially mortgages. Their projections accept an interest rise as inevitable and predict that unless action is taken now, there will be what they describe as "a tsunamii of evictions and repossessions". If this is accurate it's worrying, if it's not it is scaremongering. Remember that one of the consequences will be lower capital values for housing and more people in negative equity. I suppose time will tell. What is certain is that personal incomes are set to fall for at least 18 months and external events are going to force interest rates up from the remedial level of .5%. Their contention sounds plausible.

Papandreious  still hasn't got the vote necessary to trigger the €28billion imitial temporary bail out and predicts the Greek coffers will be empty very soon. What strikes me is that none of the measures proposed are anything to do with helping theGreeks, they are all for the protection of the banks who are creditors. I still can't see a way out other than wiping the slate clean and making Greece debt free. Problem is of course that they would then be international pariahs and the effect on global banking would be catastrophic. Mind you, this Domesday scenario wouldn't eradicate the inter-bank debt spawned by the trade in Greek debt, these sums would still be on the books. A bit of a mess!

Greece has a Structual Problem, with the Debt a result of that Problem. We wipe the slate clean and it just starts all over again. It needs sorting and wiping the slate clean is not an Answer.

I imagine this post will be totally lost on here, but this is what caught my attention today...

Today I had the pain of signing  17 Goodbye Cards  to colleagues who have been 'let go'.  All very sad when you think of the human face attached to each one.   There were actually 18 cards, the 18th being addressed to me    Frown



All thru the fields and meadows gay  ....  Enjoy

It's not a nice feeling. I've had it happen twice to me, it's much easier to go on your own terms than to be told you're no longer needed...

It is to be hoped it will be the start of something new, and will result in a new start for some of the people no longer required in the organisation.

Oh Cathy that is bad news, especially when this job wasn't easy  to come by, i hope something else turns up for you soon and for your colleagues too. Redundancy can be a real blow to self esteem, but as Frank says it can also be an opportunity for fresh fields.

Wendy I left it a little simple on purpose for simple people (see above post ) not for you.  Our son used to fix radar on fast jets  for a living, so if you need chapter and verse on how it works I am sure he will write it up for you.
Suffice to say he said tell Wendy not to worry, then he did say ask her what plot Caroline is buried in at St Barts, just in case lolol

"I imagine this post will be totally lost on here, but this is what caught my attention today..."   Cathy

Cathy, on here is exactly where it won't be lost, you've got lots of friends on OG! It's sad news to have to leave that way, but you'll soon be looking upon it as the opening of a new chapter in your life. I'm looking forward to hearing what you get up to!

Frank, when the fast jets are relying on radar to avoid collision what happens if the plane coming the other way is a stealth fighter, not visible on radar?

Another one for the record ....

No matter who this comment was aimed at, it is yet another instance of insulting behaviour...

Should this continue , I  shall have no hesitation in formally asking for the removal of this member from the site.....

Cathy, definitely not lost. Weaving a shed out is the worst job in the world. Many of us have been there. Best of luck with the job search. XXX

 "Wendy I left it a little simple on purpose for simple people (see above post ) not for you." Breathtaking!

I watched the programme on the women ferry pilots flying Spitfires last night and was struck by the presenter saying that when their pay rate was made the same as the men it was the first equal pay job for women in the world. He had obviously never heard of the piece rate paid in the mills for weaving.  (I suppose he was keeping it simple.)

An interesting piece this morning on World Service from one of the opposition leaders in Greece who has evidently read the bail-out contract from the IMF. As I mentioned a while back, one of the concomitants is privatisation of public assets and land and the buyers will be foreign capital. The argument is that Greece should show the western economies the way to avoid this. Allow the bankruptcy but then fight back using their own assets. Not a good option but then neither is selling out. Interesting stuff and I can see the sense in the argument.

Talked to a lady this morning who works at Ouzledale Foundry. She says they are very busy, particularly on exports. Encouraging news.

Stanley you need to see a doctor your having a lot of Breathtaking Moments recently !!
By the way have you worked out yet how to deal with a structual deficit ?? like Greece and many other countries have ?? I guess it means not spending what you don't have, would that not be a good start ??
Frank, when the fast jets are relying on radar to avoid collision what happens if the plane coming the other way is a stealth fighter, not visible on radar?

Tizer, Stealth Fighters being Invisible to Radar was/is a myth except in some very limited circumstances. Plus the fact the Stealth would take the avoiding action if required Wink
