Big news in small village (actually villages, three of them).
We are in line to have a wind farm built.
We have had meetings.
The communities in each village are split.
If it all goes ahead, we are to have up to 10 turbines, each being of about 125 metres tall.
Sy and me are all for it.
But we are rapidly losing friends along the way.
But then, so are many others.
By some random act of random things, we had a BBC journalist come knocking at the door a few nights ago. Sy asked him in, and it turns out he works for the 'Politics show' and was looking for three people to take to a wind farm in Wales, to film their thoughts on WF and then air it on Sunday.
Sy was off like a shot. Couldn't wait.
So, he's come home tonight loving them even more.
I asked him if any blood had been spilt- after all, he was with the woman who has organised the action group against the development.
He tells me they were all terribly British, and there were no fights or name-calling.
I feel terribly deflated by that news.
We asked Darling Daughter what her thoughts are on WF. After all, it's for her future.
She is all for them.
' I want to have electric in twenty years time, and if we need to generate it from wind turbines then so be it', she announced.
'I can see where you're coming from- well done. But i think we are going to need more than 10 turbines. Those 10 will be needed just to power your hair straighteners. How many are going to be needed to power everything else that's up in your room?'
She still isn't talking to him.
Till next time,
