A chum’s daughters “do solar heating”


If you too want to be like Al Gore, then you have to do all this big stuff. I never said that it should not be done, à-propos of Global warm-mongering: merely that I don’t think your average Patagonian, or Alaskan smallholder, can afford it – and it’s not a lot of use in Nigeria either.

It’s anyway a nice little video, quite well made by a chum of mine.

    Please tell Lizzie M. that she has the makings of an excellent TV Presenter! >:-}

    A fine song for her:

    So you speak to me of sadness
    And the coming of the winter
    Fear that is within you now
    It seems to never end
    And the dreams that have escaped you
    And the hope that you’ve forgotten
    You tell me that you need me now
    You want to be my friend

    And you wonder where we’re going
    Where’s the rhyme and where’s the reason
    And it’s you cannot accept
    It is here we must begin
    To seek the wisdom of the children
    And the graceful way of flowers in the wind

    For the children and the flowers
    Are my sisters and my brothers
    Their laughter and their loveliness
    Could clear a cloudy day

    Like the music of the mountains
    And the colours of the rainbow
    They’re a promise of the future
    And a blessing for today

    Though the cities start to crumble
    And the towers fall around us
    The sun is slowly fading
    And it’s colder than the sea

    It is written, from the desert
    To the mountains they shall lead us
    By the hand and by the heart
    They will comfort you and me
    In their innocence and trusting
    They will teach us to be free

    For the children and the flowers
    Are my sisters and my brothers
    Their laughter and their loveliness
    Could clear a cloudy day

    And the song that I am singing
    Is a prayer to non believers
    Come and stand beside us
    We can find a better way
