STV CAME CALLING today an INTERVIEW for the HOUR SHOW

We had a great day being filmed and interviewed for the Scottish television show The Hour ,it was to do with our way of life our crafts and how we use aternative energy to live without bills ,the best part of the day was seeing Mel perform her poem A Winters Morning , the interview will be shown within the next three weeks ...The film is part of a series to do with Scottish characters..Living in an old tin can in the Scottish highlands miles from anywhere it never ceases to amaze me the people you can meet via the laptop from all over the world .. Early night tonight as i am up at 4.00 am to head of to the beach to make a film for a band and our friend Kisty WHO.S EDNA ,i love working with musicians and if my wee film can help to get them noticed to me it is worth more than money..

Living a simple life off the grid WHY ????

I have led  what you might call an alternative lifestyle for over twenty five years now ,ever since leaving the army and apart from a couple of times  trying to lead a NORMAL life well in the eyes of family and friends at the time ( which resulted in my house being broken into three times in one year by a friend i found out later ,simply because i worked hard at stating a business and done well

the people around me at the time got jealous and decided to help themselves .

so one day i got myself a wee caravan and headed back on the road and with NO regrets i travel the road of simplicity and wake every day free from debt and look forward to the next adventure like a wee boy at Xmas.

With the rise in technology it has made things easier and easier , but i only pick and choose what i want to make life simpler and greener for example solar and wind power a no brainer for me ,the thought of being tied to some large company that has control over my power both in supply and cost makes no sense and scares me , when i hear of some old person that has died simply because of the fear of turning on the fire or lights it annoys and at the same time reaffirms by belief in living green, yes at first the cost of the equipment is expensive but then i have sacrificed and saved hard to get the things that will carry on and produce power at no cost both to myself or the environment  .

 

So at the hermit hovel i have both solar and wind power and a good supply of batteries .

another of the things i simply can’t get my head round WATER bills

so for the past 25 years i have collected my own water from streams or the rain that falls from the sky

 

So why do i live a simple green life ???????????????/,

easy freedom, freedom from bills and at the same till trying to look after my wee bit of the earth i happen to living on at the time .

to ability to up and go and not be tied down by debt

 

peace and light
