On the Other Hand…

… I’ve come back to the cold and the damp and a Rayburn that won’t stay lit. The other half has spent the morning rescuing clothes that have gone mildewed, even though they were hung up, and the dehumidifier is producing a litre of water an hour without making any sort of a dent in the clamminess. I have no doubt that the only thing that’s holding the frogs back from moving in and setting up shop in our bedroom is the chill in the air.

I read somewhere that water will soon become more valuable than oil. In which case, may I interest anyone in some damp-scottish-cottage futures? At least you’ll never suffer from liquidity problems…

    Sometimes there is something to be said for burning baby seals to generate power to stay warm 🙂 Has anyone also considered that the impending environmental disaster that everyone keeps telling us about involves rising sea levels. Can’t we just put the masses of newly unemployed to work building desalination plants and pipelines that providing employment, water to areas that need it and the ability to drink out way out of coastal flooding? 😀

    There’s just one tiny flaw in that plan – what goes in, must come out…

  5. Dom says:

    Reservoirs are empty, what comes out get treated and put into those 🙂

  6. disgruntled says:

    They can’t, surely, still be empty? They aren’t around here, anyway, where they are bypassing the whole rising sea level thing, and flooding the surrounding land directly.

    No they’re sort of downmarket agas. I don’t know what’s up with it but they’re sensitive beasts…
