New batteries cometh

The new bat is solid state, i.e. Non flammable. It is higher energy dense, i.e. smaller in size. about 1/3 the traditional cost, and will charge in about 60 secs. A game changer for electric cars for sure.


Oh yeah some new solid state bats will charge to 90% capacity after 10,000 charging cycles!!! Note  battery in use for electric cars are useless when they only charge to 70%

More Lewis Carroll

'If you don't know where you are going, any road will get you there'
'Contrarywise, if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.'

fall snow in appalachia

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZ8wxuf-HI8


The Snow-Storm by Ralph Waldo Emerson
Announced by all the trumpets of the sky,
Arrives the snow, and, driving o'er the fields,
Seems nowhere to alight: the whited air
Hides hills and woods, the river and the heaven,
And veils the farmhouse at the garden's end.
The steed and traveler stopped, the courier's feet
Delayed, all friends shut out, the housemates sit
Around the radiant fireplace, enclosed
In a tumultuous privacy of storm......

Thought for the day.

One of the secrets of life is that all that is really worth the doing is what we do for others.
