The Anonymous Widower

Ovo’s Kaluza Partners With Powervault To Offer Smart Storage Service

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Business Green.

Read the article, as it shows the way domestic energy will be going in the next few years.

  • Every house or collection of houses will have a battery.
  • If there is a parking space there will be a charging point for an electric car.
  • Like my house, many will have solar panels.
  • An intelligent control system will tie it all togerther to minimise electricity bills.
  • I suspect in the next couple of years, I will fit an energy store and a car charging point in my garage.

I may not have a car, but if I sell the house, it would make it easier to sell.

This article on Podpoint is entitled Adding Value To Your Property With EV Charging.

It makes some interesting points.

The Troubles At Pizza Express

This article on the BBC is entitled Pizza Express Set For Talks Over £1bn Debt Pile.

For many coeliacs like myself, who travel all over the UK,, the failure of Pizza Express or even a cutback in the number of restaurants would be a bit of a disaster.

I stayed the night in Preston on Saturday and the only place I trust to serve a safe gluten-free meal there, is the Pizza Express.

I didn’t actually use the restaurant on Saturday night, as the weather was so bad, I went straight to bed and then in the morning, went quickly to Manchester Piccadilly station for a decent gluten-free breakfast at Leon.

If Pizza Express closes branches in places like Preston, then it will make my journeys around the country a lot more difficult.

Nothing Changes

The Americans never change, when it comes to the crimes and misdemeanours of their diplomats, forces personnel and their families in the United Kingdom.

Over the last few days, the case of the death of Harry Dunn, by a stupid driver reportedly on the wrong side of the road, has come to attention on the news.

Perhaps, twenty-five years ago, C and myself were at a dinner party given by a Chinese friend and we got talking to a retired Chief Constable from East Anglia, who C knew through various legal connections.

At the time, there had just been a fatal road crash involving a United States serviceman, near one of the many bases and there was a row going on, as the suspect had been whisked back home.

I remember the retired Policeman saying that it was always happening and justice was rarely seen to be done.
