Happy New Year!

https://youtu.be/A7p0MiM4zsI

Wow what a difference a few days makes from your last picture - 12/23/2021 Oh what a beautiful morning - https://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=28748.msg1671214#msg1671214

It was raining when I went out for my exercise this morning and has been miserable for the rest of the day, yuck.

A Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year to One and All :)

It looked like a blizzard this morning but all the snow is already gone.
Hopefully that will be the only snow for the year. :)

Extenders - (NO, not that kind)
I love technology and know all about WiFi extenders.
Since I'm in my 80's, I'm now looking for a life extender.
Any ideas or recommendations?

I recommend: keep your B12 levels up and plenty of red wine. ;)

PS: I'm not quite in my 80's yet  :o

Do You Really Ever Own an EV?

https://youtu.be/yul8h-Wedfo
Buying an electric vehicle is a lot like buying a subscription to a car.

Not to mention a very expensive one, and I'm wasn't over the moon of its mileage per full charge about 20% less than a tank of fuel.  There hasn't been much said about battery deterioration over time and number of charges.  All other batteries, like your laptop lose the capacity over time, if Electric Vehicles are the same that mileage per full charge is also going to go down.

Then there is the cost of replacing them when that time comes (8 years ?), the closer to that time the less you are likely to get when you sell it (if you can even sell it). Currently there are too many question marks.

A vehicle that I was looking at from the same company as my existing petrol burner is between 3.5 and 4 times the price if purchasing.  Given the above question marks, is it worth leasing and what would be the comparative running costs.

So it looks like I could be running my three year old very low mileage car until end of life the cars or mine :)

Some of the point raised in the article are a disgrace and I would hope local Governments would take action against such restrictive practices.

Let's also not forget that currently Electric is the big clean energy rage.
There are other alternatives that are probably cleaner and less expensive that
have yet to be fully explored and developed.
Like you, I'll still with what I currently have.
