Re: Advice needed on car without anti freeze!!!!

just because he had not put anti-freeze in does not mean that it did not already contain anti-freeze. Years ago we used to check for anti-freeze by tasting the smallest amount and if it tasted sweet it was ok :scratch:

Re: Wind turbines on your door step?

Any ways', wind turbines are more exceptable than nucleur power stations, even though i think that it is the way foreward for this country to become selfsuffitientish in cheap energy.
