Just another weblog

Which all goes to show…

……….if you are keen to get your viewing figures up on your blog, have a headline which includes the brand name of a car – indeed a hybrid car at that! Pop in the word bishop and the figures go sky high! I’m not sure about one of the comments which claims you can buy a gadget to convert your car into a water and petrol guzzling vehicle ..

Heres yet another new eco phenomenon… reported in the Daily Telegraph today;

” Customers to power the tills at new supermarket”

Supermarket checkouts will be powered from energy created by shoppers at a store which opens this week, in the first scheme of its kind in Britain. Customers at a Sainsbury’s branch in Gloucester will generate electricity when they drive over kenetic road plates to enter the car park. The devices, created by Peter Hughes, a scientist from Dorset, will convert the motion into enough to power the store’s till”

So, how about we look at the kenetic energy from parishioners cars as they drive past our churches? Maybe we could harness that to power our lights or sound systems? Not completely joking…
