I love wine, and collect wine corks! I'm not sure why.
Oh I know why I drink the wine...not real sure why I keep the corks!

ABC WEDNESDAYQ is for Quaint
The Victor Harbor Horse Drawn Tram is located in the city of Victor Harbor, South Australia, Australia. The tramway runs for half of its route over a 630 metre wooden viaduct or pier, locally described as a causeway. It links the visitor information centre in downtown Victor Harbor with the nearby Granite Island recreation and nature park.  It was built in 1867, and has offered passenger service since 1894 , to the present day. It is one of the very few horse-drawn tram routes remaining in public transit service anywhere in the world, and provides service every day throughout the year. There are four tramcars, each hauled by one of 8 Clydesdale horses.

Blowing In The WInd

Click the pic to enlarge
Ontario is at the forefront of wind energy in Canada, with more than 1,500 MW of wind generation capacity connected to the province's power grid.

Many people living near the turbines in rural areas, are concerned about the possible health effects (from noise and vibrations), that the turbines could cause to humans and livestock.

Health Canada is launching a new two-year study on the potential health risks of living next to industrial wind turbines.
