Hi Ralph, happy Christmas, yes our cows are well known for their yellow butter and full fat milk, the jersey Is smaller but more hardy.
The island has become very popular in recent years with America tourist due to the 120 cruise ship visits we get each summer.
If we get several boats in on the same day, the islands population can increase by almost 10%
Also the book & now film, called The Potato Peel Society, has drawn in many thousand of tourists.

I have made a new vortex engine with a big fire box, many implied it wouldn’t work but on it’s first run we saw over 600c that was when the glass cracked and I had to use a sauce pan lid... that started glowing red after only a few minutes!
The refectory is still fresh and wet so I guess it will go quite a bit higher after a few burns.
I used my own design as my model on the previous page.
I will make a video but the fire is not really in use at the moment as it lives in my outdoor summer house and as it is summer, it gets far to hot inside.
I will post more results in the autumn when it will be used a couple of times a week.
I really don’t know why it works so well ... maybe the vortex or maybe the more fuel in the big box?
I don’t know if it is producing more air pollution but it heats up real quick and gets far to hot for cooking or standing near unless I restrict the air supply .
I am using my 5 min riser with 2” of ceramic fibre, I have not tried my cement riser.
and POOF! You're gone! But look, this tiny ad is still here:
