Hi Bob

Thanks for looking me up. As you'll discover I'm not a big Internet user. I'm very old school I actually still enjoy talking on a landline telephone!! We don't even have Internet connection at our cabin. I know - how quaint!

Hi Bob,

I tried to respond to your question about the time and location for the E.V. event. For some reason it was not working and I haven't yet figured out why.

I have put the information on the Comment Wall for the E.V. group. ...E.V. event, October 19, 7 - 9 p.m. United Church Lower Hall

Sorry for the delay.

Electric Buses for Salt Spring

I ran across this autonomous electric bus designed by Local Motors and powered by IBM Watson. It opens up possibilities for intelligent electric transportation on our island.
