I should have realised the minute I came home. I should have got it straight away.

I should have got it from the way the cats sat looking at me, ever so slightly freaked out.

I should have got it from the darkness in the utility room and the silence in the kitchen.

I definitely should have got it from the way Husband's Grandad's clock ticked so smugly, and so loudly.

We have a powercut.

The automated robot-woman message on the electricity supplier's line says the power has been out since 12.30, and "should be restored at... as soon as possible."

Now, you're probaly clicking your tongue in sympathy and frowning in concern. No, no! Don't worry.

As soon as I did get it, a sense of illicit glee stole over me. I dumped the shopping that I couldn't put away in the freezer on the kitchen counter. I ignored the computer that wouldn't turn on anyway. I fed the cats by touch and memory in the darkened utility room. I poured a martini rosso and lemonade, plated a cream cake I treated myself to, and slipped outside with Beth's latest.

The birds are going crazy, bidding for the air while they have no competition. The cows are understandably voicing their concern at their non-milking milking machine. But that's it.

No TV. No radio. No hum of fridge and freezer, boiler and pump.

I'm sitting here in the front garden, writing this longhand for later, and I feel like a kid playing hooky.

Absolute bliss.

(Don't worry. The power's back on now.)

I love power outages during a thunderstorm where you have to have everything by candlelight. It's softer and romantic. :)

I hate to say it, but I rather like power outages. (Eek, not the loss of stuff in the fridge, not the having to bail water from my basement sump pump, etc.)

But ... I got "the call" during one of the worst power outages in the US East.

Celebrating HAD to be limited to; candlelight, snuggling, smoochy conversation, and libations kept cold with the only ice we had.

Truly a wonderful moment.

I'm glad you reveled in the peace.

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not

KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
This s-t0ck will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
