Children delivered to their venue - at least if I have to collect them, it'll stop me falling asleep on the settee. Gritters have been out - it's already down to one degree, and none too warm.
LP - I know the windmills are very divisive, but I've lost count of the number of photos I could have taken, only they'd have been ruined by the line of pylons. The run down Loch Tay for example, when you can get a great view up to the Lawers hills (when it's clear!) but they run right through your sightline. I hate them, whereas I like windmills, although I know they're noisy close up, and not cost effective for now etc. I can see the Whitelee Wind Farm from the house - again, when it's clear enough!
The hydro schemes on hills are even more contentious, but we have those resources, and there's plenty of hill left to look at, so I don't get too worked up about it. Once the surrounds start to grow and cover up the pipelines a bit, it becomes less intrusive. I feel we have to make some sort of progress with energy supplies.
I heard that about laptops too -seems to be UK bannning them on certain flights right enough. I only heard a bit of the story though.
