Off Topic: Immigration Crisis? Why?
Written by Richie Jarvis

Maybe this is the answer to the Worldwide Immigration Mess

Why not remove all borders across all countries? Global population will gradually migrate to the best places - the places they migrate from become farmland (tear a few slums down - not a forest....)

The migrants will either settle, and pay taxes in the country they settle in, or be moved on. Their choice.... Over time, our growing population will settle across the planet - starting with the Western civilisations first (it seems to be where everyone wants to be right now!)

Folks will also move onto different countries and areas over time too, and I bet that gradually, the benefits offered by each country become very similar the world over. Of course, we will all have to bury the hatchet, settle our differences and agree to disagree...

But isn't that a better way for humanity to live?

Porky's Party - Today!

What Happened?

Each year, Chailey Bonfire Society holds a fund raising event.  This year, we decided to have a hog roast.  The field was prepared, the marquee was up, everything was booked.  Then it rained solidly for a month before the event.

The event had to be postponed because the field was waterlogged, and we ended up incurring costs as a result.  Added to which, plenty of folks dropped out because they were unable to come on the new date.

How can you help?

As the weather has improved significantly over the last 2 weeks, we have got everything ready for a new Hog Roast today.  We are about 30 tickets short of our target though, and so if you are at a loose end tonight, and fancy a good time, please come and join us.

Event Details

Starting Time: 7pm
End Time: Midnight
Price: £20 per person

Please give Richie a call on 07702 705427 to get a ticket allocated which you can pickup on the door.  Each ticket costs £20, and will be held for you on the door.

Included in the ticket price is your meal (Hog Roast, Salad, Pudding) and entrance.  We have a live band (The Highlights) playing as well, and a fully stocked bar with Harveys Best Bitter on tap.

You can find us by heading to South Chailey on the A275.  There are signs on the main road telling you how to find us.  If you are using a Satnav, the postcode BN8 4AS will get you to Swan House, which is opposite the Balneath Manor turning.  Then head for the 'B' on the map below.

A Good Idea?

Totally off the Astronomy topic here, but I was having a think on the way home tonight.....

So here is the thought...  Solar panels on roofs are becoming ubiquitous, yet they need to be south facing.  Why don't we focus light onto them from others roofs with focused, moveable mirrors?  An array of mirrors on the roof of each house in the area could easily focus energy from the Sun onto solar panels.

There is also another possibility here - in hotter climes, the energy could be focused onto a tank of water - I wonder how much energy would be required to boil enough water to drive a turbine?

If neighbours worked together and each roof focused a little light onto any solar collectors in the vicinity, would that capture enough energy to do anything useful?

Food for thought....
