Been helping friends clean, fill the trash cans, and pack

for moving.  If this is a foretaste of what it'll be like if I move again, I may just shoot myself.

In the meantime, this is what happens when you try to depend on bird cuisinarts for your electricity:
Turmoil in South Australia's heavily wind-reliant electricity market has forced the state government to plead with the owner of a mothballed gas-fired power station to turn it back on

The emergency measures are needed to ease punishing costs for South Australian industry as National Electricity Market (NEM) prices in the state have frequently surged above $1000 a megawatt hour this month and at one point on Tuesday hit the $14,000MWh maximum price.

Complaints from business about the extreme prices – in normal times they are below $100 – prompted the state government to ask energy company ENGIE to switch its mothballed Pelican Point gas power station back on.
Add to this, wonder what level of subsidies the citizens are paying for this 'green' energy?

It's not a bug. It's a feature.

Environmentalist wackos hate inexpensive energy because they hate human civilization and want to see it all torn down.
