Standing proudly, like a sentinal, this eco-friendly power house silently turning, almost endless motion, completely dependable, totally cost effective and no carbon footprint. What's new Claus?

Great shot and I hope that this skyline never changes.

Kind regards.---Jim

Hi Jim, this windmill, properly named "de windhond" (the greyhound), is only catching a tiny fraction of the free fuel blowing all around us. So much clean energy just vanishing into the blue sky.

My carbon footprint dropped dramatically when I quit smoking, but it was replaced by a carbohydrate footprint.

Best regards, Claus

Thanks for your enjoyable and amusing feedback Claus. I am loathe to blame you for Global Warming from your past smoking habit, As a smoker for almost 30 years, I can hardly criticise you. (I gave up the weed in 1982 and now I'm 15kg overweight)

Hello Claus:

I think this landscape is very nice, I like it!

Greetings from Chile.

Thank you for your nice comment, Erwin. The Soester Eng is a shallow hill in the middle of the village of Soest, with the mill at the highest point. The "Eng" is the commons of the village, common arable land dating from the Middle Ages. Farmers from the Eng and from miles around brought their crops to this flour-mill to be ground. Nowadays the mill is operated and maintained by volunteers.

Kind regards, Claus

Hallo Claus I sincerely hope you are well and enjoying this wonderful Season of autumn, are you gathering the fruits of nature?

I have only had a few forays to collect fungi, but not much luck this year, still, I got a few.

I guess you don't have the time for wandering about-as you have work to do!

Please keep my best wishes with you, until we next speak on these pages.

Greetings from Mike in GEORDIELAND!!

_aaal the best, marra-KEEPAHAAD!
