Wind farm

Eyesore or necessity?

This wind farm has just opened near the coast of England. This will provide enough power for a small town.

It is not free power. There is the cost of the turbines and their maintenance, and the salaries of the workers, but it is much cheaper than other power sources and there is very little pollution.

However it spoils the view. Should we put up with this inconvenience?


Harvest Moon

What bird is this?

A harvest moon doesn’t happen every year, but it happened yesterday. The previous one was in 1991.

So what is a harvest moon? It is when there is a full moon on the day of the autumn equinox.

Another red moon can be seen here.


The silvery moon

The vista across the moon is usually known as a moonscape, though it has also been referred to as a lunain (lunar terrain).

It is grey and dusty. When they returned from their stay on the surface of the moon the astronauts wondered why we had to get our kicks out of artificial ‘toys’ like video games or theme parks, when the most beautiful thing was just outside our front door: nature.

Crouch scores with a header

This was Spurs first ever game in the European Champions’ League. They travelled to Werder Bremen (Germany) for a really tough game.

Spurs scored the first two goals, an own goal, and a header from Crouch (England) but Werder are an excellent team and they also scored twice so the match was drawn. A good start for Spurs, but they are in the same group as the European champions, Inter Milan, so it will get tougher.
