    Chapter 16

    Thank you. I smiled when you said you 'binge read' the rest of the story, as that was kind of how I wrote it. It was originally to be a short story, and kind of ran away with itself. I decided about halfway through to cut it up into chapters. Probably a good thing, huh?

    Oh, I don't bite. I have been known to scratch a little, but only if asked very nicely.

    Hey, if you throw in a nucleonic dog groomer, I'll bite!

    New York's Clean Energy Standard requires that the contribution to in-state electricity generation from renewable resources rise to 50% by 2030, and, in 2017, 28% of New York's in-state generation came from renewable sources. New York generates about one-third of its electricity from nuclear power plants, and the state includes nuclear power as a zero emissions resource that counts toward New York's 2030 emissions reduction goals. In 2017, New York produced more hydroelectric power than any other state east of the Rocky Mountains and was the fourth-largest producer of hydroelectricity among all 50 states. New York State was the fifth-largest natural gas consumer for electric power generation among the states in 2017, and more than one-third of New York's electricity-generating capacity is in units that can burn either natural gas or fuel oil, switching between fuels when needed. New York State is the fifth-largest consumer of petroleum among the states, but has the lowest petroleum consumption per capita in the nation. - from New York State Profile and Energy Estimates Currently, while I can support clean energy sources, I can not guarantee where my energy comes from. I do support green energy. I just do not expect that what gets to my house was generated at Niagara, and not in some nuclear plant or from facilities burning natural gas or oil.

    My heart says to return the box to the ground, for Amos and the ages. My practical side says to seek out a few good dealers and get a value, and consider the guy's future educations. Hard call. But my feeling is that Amos would be pleased to help others, and that a reasonable course of action would be to use the gift he left behind.

    The Story

    Thank you for your comments. I don't think young people necessarily understand war, or the reasons for war; but they can and do understand the need to act on the smaller issues of life, such as loyalty to friends, and out of respect for ideas. Even the smallest contributions can have large results. Wars are won by a concert of such individual contributions. Consider it like your philharmonic, all working together to provide a victory in musical experience.

    Nah. I'm sure you know what I mean. We live in a world where old traditions are suddenly politically incorrect sometimes, even when modern people do not view them as such. It's a sign of the times. I don't know where my power actually comes from. The way the power grid is set up, you can be using power generated a long way off, and you will never know it. Signing one of these papers these fly-by-night power companies springing up everywhere offer, saying that you only want your power to come from renewable sources, simply is a gesture. Sure, a windmill or a solar farm somewhere might be generating power you are billed for, but once that juice gets into the grid, there are no house numbers on it anywhere. So never think for a moment that you know where your electricity comes from. You don't.

    Tsk, tsk, tsk. I suspect you will have coal in your klompen this year!

    You leave our Zwarte Piets out of this! Besides, zwarte is out of fashion these days - politically incorrect. The Piets I saw last year were mostly green! Lord, what will they think of NEXT!?

    No, I did not mean to claim that. And if that's you peering in under my window shade right now, stop it!

    Chapter 63 Heroes

    Pretty grim, but then, that's war. You fire those words off in quite a barrage, and they go off quite nicely when they land. No flak vest on earth can shield us from the true power of the pen.

    Chapter 14

    Nice of you to say so. I guess I need to work some more on the addictive part, so that it kicks in during the first chapter, and not so close to the end!
