Balancing the environment

After, as far as I remember [things got a little hazy at some points], not having any glorious flypasts last year, Bletchley Park have announced that this year there should be no fewer than six. I do like these, being a bit of a geek means that four world war two aeroplanes flying directly above and around my house is an intersting event.

This, of course, does beg the question of the carbon footprint these ancient ‘birds of prey’ will be laying as they fly (is there a mixed metaphor in there?). But, not to worry becasue in a fit of yin yang balance, I have found out about Urban Eden. Another group of peeps who quite like Milton keynes and think it should have more of a positive environmental impact on the planet.

If you’d like to know more about these two diverse stories, then follow the links…

Here come the planes

Urban Eden


I have a sore throat and feeling generally a little rough. I’m going to take a couple of cold tablets and then watch Man Utd in the FA Cup followed by Primeval (thought it was Ok, last week, and so will be watching it again.

Took a walk to the DIY shop earlier, I am feeling very green actually. Now that isn’t to do with the sore throat and illness, that is to do with the fact that we are still without a car, and so are walking a lot more. This would have been one of the trips we would have previously made via the car, now we need to walk. We wouldn’t have been able to carry anything large that we bought home, but this was a purely window shop trip, so full green marks to us.

I feel lucidity slipping even further from my grasp, so I think it is probably time to shut up and find something else to do.
