Thursday Thoughts; Electric Vehicles

It is interesting that some still say that electric vehicles are too expensive and that’s one of the reasons that people are not buying them.

The COVID Years

The Climate Emergency and Our Response

As I have previously mentioned, my hometown of Lytton burned down. Does that not sound weird to say my hometown burn down? Well the truth is that’s what happened. Essentially all of the village including the police station, the ambulance station, the medical clinic, the hospital, the seniors care centre, the two grocery stores, the […]
