I simply do not need nor do I want a smart meter.

Over recent years I have installed an 'A' rated boiler, fridge and freezer. I have insulated my loft to the recommended depth, my cavity walls have been insulated, I have fitted thermostatic valves to all radiators and most lamps in the house are energy saving types.

I can't really do more so if I feel cold, I turn up the heat, if the room seems dingy I put on some lights. I am not going to scrimp to save a few pounds. I intend to be comfortable in my final years.

We have a very large house building company, Persimmon Homes. I wonder where that name came from?

Ever tried Durian?

Some interesting facts and observations about "Playing cards":

Did you know that the Traditional Deck of the Playing Cards are a strikingly coherent form of a Calendar?

There are 52 weeks in the year and there are 52 Playing Cards in a Deck.

There are 13 weeks in each Season and there are 13 cards in each suit.

There are 4 Seasons in a Year and 4 Suits in the Deck.

There are 12 Months in a Year so there are 12 Court Cards (Those with faces namely Jack, Queen, King in each suit)

The Red Cards represent Day, while Black Cards represent the Night.

If you let Jacks = 11, Queens = 12, and the Kings = 13, then add up all the sums of 1 + 2 + 3 + ...to 13 = 91. Multiply this by 4, for the 4 Suits, therefore 91 x 4 = 364, Add 1 that is the Joker and you will arrive at the number 365 being the Days in a Year?

Is that a mere coincidence or a greater intelligence?

Of interest is the sum of the letters in all the names of the cards, e.g., add up the letters in "one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, Jack, Queen, King" = 52!

The Spades indicate ploughing or working.

The Hearts indicates Love thy crops.

The Clubs indicates flourishing and growth.

The Diamonds indicate reaping the wealth.

Also, in some card games 2 Jokers are used; Indicating the Leap year.

There is a deeper Philosophy than just merely Playing Cards.

The Mathematical perfection is mind blowing.
