    There is no big battery at Battery Point. There may be some small batteries to bring the diesel generators into life from a dead start. There will be soon be renewable to augment the diesels. There is already an interconnector to the mainland.

    My Reason To Be Cheerful
    The football team I support, Stoke City, won 2-0 today.
    However the Stoke Managers comment after the game made me smile....

    "If we score twice every week and keep a clean sheet every week then we're going in the right direction..."

    In an almost unprecedented coincidence, my Scottish, English and Italian teams all won their matches. And if you know who my Scottish team are you'll understand how infrequently this can happen. :D

    Would that be East Fife? A few years ago Dave found they were doing rather well and told me when he was a kid his dad used to take him to matches and for many years he thought the team name was "East Fife Nil"

    St. Johnstone...

    The holy grail of Scottish football results was always East Fife 4:5 Forfar.

    Our regular Hermes guy is another good one. Friendly, never arses about hiding things in the garden or bins, and generally a credit to his employer.

    Many years ago I cycled Land's End to John O'Groats. While passing through Scotland I went through towns whose names I thought only existed in the Football Pools. I passed St Johnstone's ground, not knowing until then it was in Perth.

    That can prove an expensive mistake when booking travel.

    I used to live near Palestine and Egypt, which as we all know is on the Hampshire/Wiltshire border.

    I've been to Dunkirk frequently and didn't need a ferry.

    I guess you thought Watling Street. I thought Nottingham, near the uni and full of covidious students.
