For those of you who have been to Ell's Kitchen with us upstairs at the Food court (outside) we remarked in the early months (last October) about the noise of the periodic extraction device attached to the NRG building which also piped out some quite offensive smells... now this notice has gone up outside the market... as upon investigation the extraction service had not gone through the planning permission process and that is why it has not been functioning of late... the notice below was on the signpost outside the market on Saturday... anyone who cares to object can do so... in the next week ... but be quick...

These are the new outside heaters that are going to be installed upstairs in the Food Court area of the market... one will be sited in the middle of the area where those Gazebo's are currently sited... another in the middle of the seating area outside the Japanese restaurant and another attached to one of the upright pillars also outside the Japanese restaurant. Apparently 3 is all that could be installed on account of the restrictions on the current electricity supply at the market.

Great news! People will be so much more comfy. These heaters are often very inefficient ... I hope they've sourced some low carbon models. Mind, my heating is not very low carbon so I'd completely understand if this wasn't.

One of two huge new Solar panel (therefore solar energy) projects I saw on the M4 near Reading... are we finally getting serious about renewables?

Its massive and accounts for 18% of electricity generation in the UK. Great shot!

Introduction

Welcome to my GoOgle bio Page !

I follow my passions, have given up working and spend my time having fun with great people... 

I love change... my big project that will take me through to 2020 is to help bring about a transformation in the way we live and work in the UK... that includes a whole host of things including, getting people to focus on taking responsibility, people and relationships rather than blame and money... also reversing the trend of obesity by surrounding people with others who are making better health choices, getting us to all think about buying locally and living in a more sustainable manner... and rebuilding our communities that we lost through with our endless chase for money and convenience and ... getting people to talk to each other, find out who is actually in our neighbourhood and towns and start connecting again... the "concept of enough"... there is enough for us all,  it just needs fairer distribution and a move to an abundance / collaboration mentality away from that of scarcity / competition and eventually... replacing the government with something more appropriate for the 21st century... then after that I would love to help out in Europe not with the debacle which is the EU of today, but something that celebrates member states uniqueness and culture rather than trying to control and manipulate.

There is much to do!! But with Vision, passion, enormous energy, belief and desire to be part of a team leading the way for a better future for us all and the next  generation I am sure this will be one heck of a rollercoaster....

My ambition? To have served my purpose for having been born to this planet... and to have not let down the people who know me by falling short of what I am able to do!

Bragging rights
We all have gifts, I believe I have discovered mine... now enjoying helping others find theirs!
