Northern Light goes south

Everyone needs a job, it's just part of life. But sometimes jobs can really suck. They may require you to fly halfway around the world and have to sit next to a pool, in the Californian sunshine, surrounded by birdsong and flower blossoms, whilst sipping good coffee and munching fresh mango and pineapple for breakfast. Like I said, work can really suck.

Good point - maybe my bike is my carbon offset? I've done 600 kms so far this year. How many air miles does that buy me?

Not many I'm afraid Toby - it's a highlighter of how difficult it is to be really properly environmentally friendly. I burn far too much fuel too - but that is to create a decent quality of life.....and that's just getting from Hull to the Peak on a regular do we really manage to behave well and balance expectation and desire?

Sod Al Gore and his carbon footprint, he's full of hot air anyway.

You're in California baby!!! Enjoy it. It's plastic fantastic, even the women are made of plastic. Amen for human progress.
