  • Neither Dasp. Spotlight πŸ’‘is a thread where community members are asked a few questions by community manager Marc πŸ‘. Just simple things like your work, spare time hobbies🀸*β™‚οΈπŸ„*β™‚οΈπŸ‹οΈ*β™‚οΈπŸ, interests, what you ate for breakfast πŸ₯€πŸ³πŸhow you came to join PP πŸ’‘and so on.

    you can provide a selfie 🀳for the feature, or if you prefer just an avatar 🐢or something representative of your interests πŸ¦„πŸor yourself.

    Each month, Marc publishes a featured member, and we all get to learn a little more about one another πŸ‘.

    Give it a go Daspy!
    Peace is always beautiful.

  • I was one of the bad boys killing the planet. Retired now after 40 years commissioning natural gas processing facilities around the world. I sometimes found myself asking β€œWhy is oil & gas nearly always found in the hottest, coldest, driest, wettest, most miserable, most politically unstable and dangerous places on the planet, and never next to a 5-star beach resort?”

  • Jon1 miles from my original thread I know but....
    If I am not mistaken is your avatar pic a bee hive which I think looks like a national? Are you an apiarist. If so how many hives, what variety of bee and how well have you been doing recently?

    Cheers Oakbank. My reply to your thought, for what it's worth, would be coz that's how the law of Sod works. Oh and by the way in some way we've all been/are bad boys (or girls) at some point. I 've only in last 12 months stopped driving a diesel.

  • Hi daspy.
    Yes it is a bee hive. The boss while having honey with his breakfast one morning decided he would like to produce his own.
    The following week im on a course all about bee keeping and the hive was ordered along with a nuc of bees.
    The hive itself is a flowhive, with lots of sarky comments and back stabbing remarks from the local bee keeping society,i have actually found it very easy to use. The boss is obviously impressed as a second hive has now arrived and awaiting more bees.

    perhaps because no-one wants to build a 5 star resort next to a gas processing facility..
