Anyone who IS doing this will not be reading your post on the internet will they?

I personally would be happy to be without the web if I had some good company. I wouldn’t want to be without light in Winter evenings though. Not being able to read or do craft work, repairs etc in the evenings would be too much like the ‘dark ages’ for me. Candles, oil lamps etc – not a good alternative when solar is so cheap and readily available.
