Here's my 400ah forklift truck battery. It's in the back of the car. It weighs 300kg. We are going to try and get it out the car tomorrow. A forklift truck put it in
Sharps. The dark panels along the side and up the front are Solar PV panels that cost a fortune to us. Many years to payback original investment to install domestically at present.
Perhaps I should start from the beginning. UK Plc is in trouble over future cheap energy. The proof of this can be seen by the closing of the Angelsey Aluminium works with a large loss of jobs.
We have umm'd and ahh'd over the last 15 years whilst our reserves have been depleted and we are starting to have to rely on the like of dodgy Russia for gas supplies.
The current issue over returning the Lockerbie bomber to Libya for oil shames us in front of the world. Desparate measures for desparate times.
No proper strategy for future energy has been agreed and set into motion. The idea that wind mills will keep us all warm with loads of cheap energy is moonshine. The current push for thousands of windmills to litter our hills and oceans is misconceived. Every windmill has to be backed up by one of those "filthy" oil / coal powered electricity generators.
I used to be pro Nucleur with the proviso that we had a very strong independent body to oversee the industry but the clean up costs are ridiculous. Originally the proletariat were fed the line that nucleur power would produce free electricity............
So we are up the creek without a paddle having to rely on others. Is this how the EU wants the UK?
So bearing the above in mind I have started to reduce our energy requirements from the grid. I have been making investments on Ebay and at the car boot sales.
1. Solar cells to make solar panels. (Ebay USA) This will be an ongoing investment.
2. Kingspan for wall and roof super insulation bought on Ebay as seconds.
3. A fork lift battery 400 Ah from Ebay
4. Someone gave me a wood burner which needs a heat exchanger added to the flue.
5. A petrol chainsaw purchased at the Chirk Carboot sale. Currently I am wading through health and safety with regards chainsaws on the HSE site.
Lisa is a little perturbed at my dilution of savings. I think however the current quantiative easing (government printing money for free) will have a large dilution on our savings as a country.
Those that saved prudently are going to have to pay for the madness of our banks for many years ahead.

Possibly the largest carboot sale within a 100 miles. Most human life is here. There must be over 500 stalls here on occasion. Perhaps 1500 people visiting the carboots. By 8.00am it's getting busy on a sunny day.
There are the traders, meat, fruit and veg, coffee and hamburger stands. car parts, keys cut, plant and flower sellers, cycles, golf clubs, everything for mobile phones, house clearers, you can even get a new tyre put on your car. Today I saw someone having their fortune told with cards. Cars and caravans also for sale.
All cheaper than shops or supermarkets.
The people, Welsh, English, Poles, Romanians, German, French, Pakistani, Africans. As well as the traders there are people deciding to loose all that rubbish they have built up, people emigrating, downsizing. Everyone knows the phrase "how much?"
Up the top end the new carboot sellers arrive. If you have anthing of interest your stall will be mobbed before you get your stuff out. They descend like a plague of locusts. Since we don't do carboots ourselves this is not an issue. It's best if there are at least two of you.
Amongst the carboots and stalls the predators roam amongst the crowds methodically going up and down each row eyes scanning the ground sheets and tables subconciously dodging the people, prams, children, dogs on leads and the sheep muck underfoot. It's hard work and can take up to three hours to get around.
Specialists in jewellery, antiques, books, tools and plant equipment, clothes. Ready to pick up items for little money a pound, five or ten that will go for 25, 50 or a 100 elsewhere. Knowledge that has been picked up for years through trial and error the key to success.
Best times to go. May to September.
It's open most of the year but retires to the top field in the Winter.
Best weather to go. Sunny.
Best weather not to go. Rain, wind and cold.
If you are selling. £8 pound a stall at the time of writing, big stalls pay more.
You need a table or polythene sheet ( blue tarpaulin). If you want to be a pro have a spare sheet to throw over everything if it starts raining. Try get a spot where your car shields you from any wind or sun. Sellers turn up the night before in caravans and motorhomes or after 6 am on the day.
If you are buying or just out for the day.
Look at the weather forecast the night before. We check Met Office Rain Radar before deciding to go on the morning. Appropriate footwear should be worn, women often turn up in white pumps and trainers, flipflops and mules.
The ladies also wear the most inappropriate of clothes, cleavage and builder's bums abound. Some women have triangular tattoo's near their coccyx, also some have put on thongs as well.
Do they do this to make you look when they bend over?
Lots of male crumpet for the ladies.
A voyeur's paradise.
Don't wash your hair the night before if we have not had rain for days it gets dusty. Rain means mud. Take pound coins, fivers and tenners. Twenty pound notes can be an issue.
The car boot sale is perfect for children's clothes and toys. Adult clothes, tools, plumbing bits, electrical bits, paint, household goods and cheap fresh food.
Good Points. Best carboot, loads of stalls and well run.
Bad points. Toilets dire, sometimes a 20 minute queue to leave site due to them not allowing you to take the nearest exit to the A483. I know a good way out but I'm not telling.
Good toilets to be had in the middle of Chirk.
Crime is just about non existent.
If you like watching people a fascinating place to go.

This is not a dig at Labour. All parties must have a few of these lurking around. Comments are at the bottom of the article. The article contains profanity with asterisks.
The Youtube video has been pulled.
Since I daily traverse the dangerous A5104 I would like to issue a challenge to Flintshire County Councillors.
To show how dangerous cycling is in Flintshire on busy A and B roads I would like to propose the following.
Each Flintshire County Councillor will be taken to the top of Treuddyn at the beginning of rush hour and given the task of cycling from the top of Treuddyn on the A5104 down to Penyffordd railway station. On their way which is mostly down hill they are to mentally take note of how many times they have near misses with vehicles and how many times their presence on the road causes other vehicles to have potential head on's.
Also notice how hard motorists have in staying on their side of the white line due to the excess speeds they do. Some do it because they are on a racing line, others do it as they can't stay on their side of the road due to their speed. At times you will be doing less than 5 mph with vehicles flying past you at 50mph+. This will include 20 ton lorries coming from the quarries.
Whilst the push to make Wales fitter is admirable mixing cyclists with modern fast traffic in my opinion will lead to higher death rates. It will not be me however as I will not cycle on A roads.
Cycling needs to be kept away from fast road traffic and the public should be advised accordingly.
Postscript. In The Leader Friday 62 year old knocked off his bike at Rhydtalog. Slight injuries taken to hospital.

Everyone and his/her aunty will be trying to get a letter in The Leader over the above.
In the Daily Post "Yesterday Eric Evans, who served for nine years as deputy chief constable, made an outspoken attack.
He said: “Mr Brunstrom’s remarks regarding the policing of North Wales and the manner of dealing with serious crime and criminals is deeply insulting and an affront to North Wales police officers of all ranks who were serving before he was appointed as chief constable.
“At least now with his retirement the force will have the opportunity to come out of what has been a dark period of policing in North Wales, and the force can start once again to provide proper policing for the community rather than concentrate on target figures which have little relevance to the public.”
Link The Daily Post
Chief Constable Richard Brunstron carried out an audit of Penyffordd with councillors in tow. What he pointed out and solutions to be made was very good but he "forgot" the near 2000 vehicles speeding (circa 2007) through the village each day.
What is required in is North Wales Police accountability in communities not just the facade.
The proof of this continuing unaccountability is the refusal of NWP to have a proper forum for debate. NWP currently refuse to acknowledge that speeding is even an issue in Penyffordd on their website.

1. Corporation Tax down 34% for the same month last year.
2. VAT plunged 34% from the same month one year ago.
Income Tax and National Insurance revenue will also be taking a good hiding. Looks like 20% down on last year.
The Chancellor Alistair Darling has borrowed 44 times more this year than he said he was going to borrow.
The banks are still trying to shore their balance sheets up by refusing to lend to business
The above figures are horrendous. Any political party that pretends that huge cuts in public spending are not going to happen is dealing with untruths.
Private Enterprise funds nearly ALL public health (NHS), education, law enforcement, councils, etc through their taxation. All the employees and their pensions.

Also water heating and space heating through solar.
Also the use of a woodburner.
Submarine batteries are perfect for the job, very heavy and hard to find. Also good are electric operated stacker truck batteries also very heavy.
Some chap sells batteries on Ebay which he says are deep cycle but are not. It's easy to get caught out. I've bought off Ebay some solar cells which are superior to those produced by Sharps in Llay.
They only cost £4 to post from the USA. You have to solder them together and put them in a metal frame.

Flintshire County Council and North Wales Police have embraced The Internet but they struggle a little as they can't have all their own way.

Methods employed by Royal Mail.
1. You fill in a claim form send it off and nothing happens.
You ring up they say they have lost it. Fill another one in.
They also take ages to reply if you get lucky
2. They say that an item of proof that you have supplied is missing when you know you sent it.
Fill another one in.
3. Say you find an item at a carboot sale for 50 pence. You put it on Ebay and it goes for a £100.
It gets lost in the post. Royal Mail want receipts ( you don't get receipts at car boot sales) They also want to give you what you paid for it and not what its worth, ie. 50p instead of £100.
There is also the risk of getting negative feedback by the customer when the fault lies with Royal Mail.
Thankfully this messing around is getting less.
I think its a good idea to contact your AM or MP if messed around.

Carl Sargeant AM is hiding in the crease of the page on the photo. Cllr Carolyn Thomas is a county councillor "to die for" with regards protesting against speeding traffic through her ward of Treuddyn. I wish Carolyn was county councillor here. There are more than a few here who would wish I would perhaps move to Treuddyn. lol.
Carolyn has had indecent amounts of exposure in both The Leader and The Chronicle.
Carolyn is complaining that her speed protest campaign in Treuddyn has been hijacked for political gain. Carolyn says that she is an independent councillor and works on behalf of residents and not a political party.
This is not quite the case. Carolyn is part of The Independent Group that with two other political groups run Flintshire County Council. Labour who were in control before 2008 are the opposition group. There is only one non aligned independent county councilor and that is Cllr Colin Legg.
Even our Cllr David Williams has joined the Independent Group. I originally criticised David on the blog for not joining the the Independent Group. It is good to see he has now joined.
With regards politics that Carolyn complains about. The Welsh Assembly Government holds the country purse strings they are made up of Labour and Plaid Cymru. Flintshire County Council is run by The Independent Group along with the Conservatives and the Lib Dems. We have a Labour AM and MP. So politics are unavoidable. As someone said to me fairly recently " You have to look at the big picture".
Oh to have Cllr Carolyn Thomas on board for 20 mph in village centres and schools Flintshire campaign.
Question? Why don't Carl Sargeant AM and Mark Tami MP come to Penyffordd as we have over a 1000 speeders each day? I'm a little shy asking people, believe it or not. Also the political capital is not much. Penyffordd isn't bothered about speeding cars that will knock their children and grandma down that's why it's a struggle.
Daffodils are ok but don't mention village environment.

Eads profits down to £767m for half year
A letter for consideration Leader.
Lord Mandleson is to be congratulated for securing £340m to help secure future work at Airbus Broughton and for sub-contractors. His stepping in to stop Welsh post office closures was also most welcome.
When Flintshire County Council gave Airbus planning permission to expand Airbus some years ago they overlooked the effect that their shift workers would have on local village environments.
Penyffordd village leaders sat on their hands whilst plans were passed that would seriously affect Penyffordd's environment. In return for this gift from the state is it not now Airbus' turn to honour their stated corporate commitments to local communities and pay for local traffic calming from their vast profits?

I managed finally to get one to register on their system. The enquiry was refused ( how many speeding cars in Chester Rd each day) but hey it's all good fun.
So Saturday I filled the online form in again - no robot.
Sunday tried again in case I pressed clear instead of send.
Emailed them Monday - nothing.
Lisa phoned them Tuesday - still no success.................
Emailed again Tuesday evening..........
Wednesday morning 10.38 am still no acknowledgement of FOIE.
Wednesday evening tried again. Instead of using Mozilla I used Windows Explorer.
Still no joy

Emailed to various county councillors and officers.

There has been this extreme reluctance to even acknowledge its existence. The Summer Penyffordd Community Newsletter can't even mention that Chester Rd is a problem area. Last local elections were rigged. I say this not as a sore loser. Cllr Tom Jones has a group vote which he uses to keep out potential councillors who will not toe his line. Cllr Joe Bell should never have stood, he is too unwell. It's time for most councillors to retire. Local elections have been rigged for years and it shows through in poor community facilities.
Penyffordd Community Council have been toothless in their dealings with North Wales Police. They should be pressing them to enforce law and order in Chester Rd not sitting on their hands.
They are too weak.
Why didn't councillors press Flintshire County Council to exclude lorries when we had our bypass built? I think a few councillors have sided with local lorry firms and Flintshire County Council over the interests of Penyffordd residents
It's time for our senior councillors to stand aside they have let the village down badly.

Of course lots of this speeding traffic is from Airbus shiftworkers which is something Airbus, Flintshire County Council, North Wales Police and Penyffordd Community Council try to pretend isn't happening.
Lower Mountain Rd is an accident waiting to happen due to your workers speeding on narrow country lanes. Chester Rd less so but we get the largest amount of speeders, over a 1000 a day. Flintshire County Council can tell from their traffic data exactly when your shift workers speed through the village but are protecting you. Is it some kind of Masonic thing? Or are Flintshire Councillors trying to get jollies on your A380?
A quick look on Airbus website says you are " Investing in The Green Wave" Aren't these marketing people marvellous. Airbus getting involved in all things green whilst allowing their workers to speed through villages around Airbus Chester every day.
Green Wave aims to raise awareness among children, young people, families and educators on the importance of biodiversity, and also supports schools around the world to educate tomorrow's decision-makers on the crucial tasks of protecting Earth's biodiversity and halting its loss.
On the 5 June 2009 World Environment Day (WED) – an initiative by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) – Airbus launched its “See the bigger picture” photo contest together with the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and National Geographic.
Airbus calls upon young people to take action, go outside, stop, look and care about the biodiversity (the variety of plants and animals) surrounding them. We believe that submitting photographs - illustrating what biodiversity means to children - is a great way to get them excited about the natural world and for them to appreciate the importance of biodiversity.
One would hope that Airbus will start to care about its local environments. Until then the above is just so much corporate twaddle like your corporate statement on local environments.
regards Colin Hughes
ps. One of your 30 ton lorries got stuck outside the village garage the other day. You could start to act responsibly to local villages by banning them where there are bypasses. Alan Skips, Springfield Building Supplies, Alan Morris Transport and Hanson Cement all use Penyffordd bypass.

This site allows you to report issues to Flintshire County Council. Such as dog mess, potholes or street lights that need attending to. It's straight forward and takes little to master.
Last night I filled out a request on their FOIE form.
I awaited the robot to send me a reference number but no number. Thinking perhaps I pressed the clear button rather than the send button I sent it again today. Still no reference number returned.
Over the last two years I have sent maybe 8 FOIE's to Flintshire County Council. I have only had a reply from one enquiry and I had to drag that out of them. The enquiry was avoided through devious means.
These days I do not fill out the online form then send it off. I do it in a word editor and save it. Then I have a copy to send again should it disappear into the ether.
My first six enquiries were never acknowledged.
Anyway I'm sure the subject of my FOIE will become apparent shortly.

BUT WHAT ABOUT CHESTER ROAD SPEEDING?
WE HAVE OVER A 1000 EACH DAY.
There is a section on speeding within the village and Lower Mountain Rd. 20 mph is mentioned as a possibility near schools. A big paragraph with with regards Lower Mountain Rd speeding but no mention of Chester Rd. No mention to the 1000+ speeders that abuse Chester Rd each and every day. North Wales Police's strategy to slow down traffic within Chester Rd looks the same as usual. It has no teeth.
There continues to be a conspiracy by North Wales Police and Penyffordd Councillors to ignore speeding in Chester Rd. No accountability. This shown by the continuing refusal to admit it is even happening.
Quite frankly the police and councillor accountability over speeding in Chester Rd is zero.
You are just ignoring it.
It started with a polite request to Nigel the clerk about speeding. He phoned up to say its nothing to do with the council. It hasn't moved far from there.

Speeding is also being ignored on Environmental Visual Audits by North Wales Police.
As are illegal exhausts.
Story here The Leader.
On the front is a smiling David Jones who is College Principle of Deeside. I once met David at a business networking do at Northop Country Club. He is a very nice chap. The day was a golf day for North Wales heads of industry etc. I sneaked in because I have a golf mate who employs rather a lot of people (abour 3000).
So there I was having a very interesting chat with David in the bar overlooking the course. It was curtailed however as the head networker and organiser could see I was a "no one" and guided David over to network with the great and the good. David is a good networker with the media and politicians too.
Thus ended my brief contact with the heads of industry.

Land adj. to, Brooklyn Farm, Terrace Lane, Penyffordd, Chester, CH4 0HB
Change of use of agricultural land to equine use, erection of stables and manage and alterations to access and landscaping
Google Map Reference here
The post code suggests house with swimming pool over the road. George Jones tells me its the field behind his house.
Decision Target Date 14/09/2009
Flintshire County Council Case Officer Mr M Harris
Reasons not to have it.
1. It affects house values of those that back onto the field
2. It is for 12 stables. It's too large.
3. Access will be via Terrace Lane which is very narrow.
4. Once planning is given they will be looking to build a house due to the number of horses
that will need to be looked after.
The following could be used " Security and well-being of the horses would be a material consideration"
5. This is the thin end of the wedge. Once this development is granted there will be ongoing pressure to allow further residential expansion. Penyffordd's share of Flintshire UDP housing is already approaching 30% of the current village which is an unfair obligation.
6. The field has a footpath on which local people walk their dogs. Horses can be dangerous creatures and have a capacity to kill or seriously injure local people and their dogs.
7. It's a business development on greenfields.
8. Question - Is it outside boundary for development?
9. The smell of horse urine down wind of stables would be offensive.
10. The impact on the visual amenity of nearby residential properties
11. The buildings would harm the rural character of the locality.
12. The buildings would underminine the openness of the countryside.

I understand Nigel Jones Clerk to the Council may have the plans.
Funds are being frittered away on wallpaper and the likes whilst road deaths are becoming a near weekly statistic. Is it not time for FCC to get a grip and take proper responsibility for the carnage on Flintshire roads? North Wales Police and Flintshire County Council are supposed to act as a partnership to lower speeding in Flintshire villages and towns which is a serious anti social behaviour issue.
Where is the county strategy to protect village environments? Cllr Tony Sharps in charge of FCC Environment Portfolio has Northop Hall protected but what about the rest of us?

The quotes are with regards the Hawarden fatal crash.
"One local resident, who wished to remain anonymous, said the 30mph street is used as a racetrack by some motorists."
The road was closed until around midday, according to the resident, who said: “I did hear a car drive past early this morning, at take off speed but then cars are always speeding along this street.
“It’s only a 30mph road but a lot of cars are doing more than 60mph.”
Hawarden councillor Clive Carver has campaigned for speed restrictions along Glynne Way.
He said: “This is very sad news but Glynne Way and the road out of Hawarden has had problems for a while with accidents.
“Something has to be done about it because we do not want to see a repeat of this incident.”
