  2. There's approx one billion cattle in the world in 2022. There's approx 8 billon humans in the world in 2022. When we die, we're just wasted (and even worse we pollute being 'taken care of" if we are cremated ......I wonder if that will change in the future when the world population is a lot more and finite resources are getting stretched even thinner.

  3. Thanks Pat......on my bucket list is going to the USA and to EOT and also a visit here - http://www.jensensteamengines.com/ And also here - https://www.cabinfeverexpo.com/
  4. Further to the obscure hobbies or interests thread which was thoroughly interesting to see what keeps some of you busy, does anyone have or had a toy/model steam as a boy? It would be interesting for this steam nut I collect them from all over the world, many now well over 100 years old, most come broken and are missing parts and its a challenge fabricating parts for them in my small metal shop. These were 'boys toys' from the early 1900's (huge in Germany and the U.K) up to losing favour in the 1960's when TV and and other entertainment took more of a hold. And its hard to imagine parents these days allowing their young sons to play with fire and live steam boilers on the loungeroom floor....how things have changed. Jensen model steam engines built (still) in Jeannette PA in the USA is of particular interest to me and I have collected a lot of them.
  5. I have just a slight problem with model and toy steam engines .......................
