The ever increasing scarcity of fossil fuels and other energy sources means there has never been a better time to consider saving energy in the home and in the car. The increasing prices of power, which are likely to keep increasing, means that alternative sources of energy are being developed that are becoming more viable.

This is another site built using WordPress.

Renting your spare room is a good way of earning some extra cash in these austere times.

the website provides this service, mainly aimed at people who want to rent a room during the working week, when their work takes them away from home. It is a popular website and has been running successfully for a few years.
