future hopes and family time...

Aside from the contribution that Live 8 - and hopefully as a result, the G8 - will make to the world as a whole, I was heartened by two news stories this week.

The first is that there is to be investment into an experimental nuclear fusion power plant - within the next few decades, we could be liberated from the oil's stranglehold. It was quoted that a bath of water and the amount of lithium in a laptop battery could provide a lifetime's worth of power for one person.

Secondly, a hydrogen fuel cell plane has finally been built - a pioneer in green aircraft technology. It's interesting to note that water could be considered a 'greenhouse gas', though.

There appears, however, to be a little more hope for our children's future - I guess things can only get better from here.

Christopher - king of the castleElla versus the seaWe've had a wonderful "back to basics" week together as a family, including a couple of trips to the seaside, several visits to the swimming pool, and a good deal of sunshine, too. I do sometimes wonder what life without the lure of the internet would be like - I guess it's something that, once you have it, you can't really do without it. But we all managed for the past week (including Christopher, who's really into the Transformers site at the moment), preferring to play "Uno" - an extremely addictive game, with a variety of variations to the rules - and spend time reading.

Back to reality now, though - I've not dare check how many work emails I have awaiting me!
