    Re: CHIT-CHAT Zone

    Thanks Steve. I realise now that it was the FB icon itself that was not loading, it was missing on rhe index page. What was odd was that the video link on another thread was not working properly, either, and I put the two together and thought - what the heck??? But they were probably two hiccups that happened to coincide. They're not out to get me, after all!

          He is working for the NASA, so if ever, they will find it out. As far as i understand, the hardest task is to find the perfect plastic material for the bags. This was an unsolved problem back in 2009:

          I didn't understand, that they have solved this problem so far.

              Really makes you think when you look at the graph that shows how much bio-fuel is produced per acre by all the various plants. Soya, sunflower etc, only 50 - 100 gallons per acre per year each. I have no idea how much normal oil is produced each year throughout the world, obviously billions of gallons, and when you think of amounts like that, you start to think about just how much land would be needed to produce even half that amount of bio-fuel. And when you consider the growing need for land to be used for food crops, you soon realise there cannot be enough spare land on earth for all of it. But going back to that graph, wow, 2000 - 5000 gallons per acre without using any of the land needed for food crops. Certainly makes you think doesn't it!
              Your charts, your radar, your eyes and ears - if all 4 agree, you may proceed with caution.

                MOSCOW............. I folk , it is a big birthday for me this year so to celebrate I am off on a city break to Moscow. Something on my wish list to visit Red Square and the Kremlin. I am going on my own, so I hope to have some lovely photos for CV forum. That will be followed by another birthday celebration with my two daughters to Iceland to see the Northern Lights. So a busy month in October. So a great chance for some good shots.

                          it was so interesting, I just loved the history of it all. So many other place to visit but i was happy with what i did.. Not many people there speak English and i only manages to meet an American couple who helped me find the entrance to the kremlin. everything is so vast. The weather stayed dry , so that was a blessing as well.

                              Oh how exciting, more travels so soon! I already had a quick look at the Moscow photos, and was so fascinated I though I’d write to you later in that thread when I have time to give them the attention they deserve. I’ve never been there, whereas seeing your Iceland photos will be different as for me it is a more familiar destination, though not at this time of year. I will have my fingers crossed that you will be fortunate to see the Northern Lights!
