One of the local farmers having fun with his windmill.
With all this negative blogging, it's time to have a little fun with the windmills. Here are a few things that just might bring a chuckle to your lips.
#1 Despite the fact that the residents of Wolfe Island were told there would be little or not bird deaths attributed to the turbines, someone has been hired whose sole job is to seek out dead birds!
#2 Some of the most ardent supporters of the wind farm are now complaining about noise!
#3 Despite being told there would be very little light pollution, some people are being kept awake at night by annoying flashing red lights. Where are the lights? You guessed it, on top of the windmills!
#4 In order to make the concept of electricity a little more sexy, the industrial behemoths are not located on wind farms any more, they are called wind parks!
#5 One of the first to sign up and get their very own wind turbine, now has their house for sale, for $800,00! In a 'wind park'!
#6 To capitalize on the sexy wind parks, there is a Kingston bus company giving turbine tours! Look there's one, and there's another... and another...!
#7 One of the local restaurants (which shall remain nameless, but it rhymes with Rowns Ray), advertised daily specials but when someone I know tried to make reservations were told it was for the windmill people only. Now that the mad construction rush is over, they want us back!
#8 In reading all the comments that are posted on my blog, I have one repeat customer who HATES ME! I have two questions to this poster; what have you got against punctuation, and why do you keep coming back?!!
