The De Valk Windmill


I just thought I would say a big hello to our friends and business associates in Nigeria – looking forward to doing business with you…


We are all feeling better this morning – the sun is shining and it has stopped raining. It has been awful, just 100 miles to the north of us the poor sods in Cockermouth in Cumbria had 9″ of rain in one day, their town was devastated by it. Good job that rain didn’t fall over Holland:

‘The Netherlands faces the North Sea in western Europe. The Dutch have a saying: “God made the Earth, but the Dutch made Holland.” The first defences against the sea went up some 800 years ago. Today more than 2,400 kilometers (1,491 miles) of dikes shield the low, flat land—almost half of which lies below sea level—from invasion by the North Sea. Without the existing dikes 65 percent of the country would be flooded daily.’

RIGHT – BACK TO WORK. We are busy processing orders and enquiries following the Cape Town Conference, all still very positive, modems seem to be flavour of the month… keep on keeping on..
