Wouldn't it be lovely to have a compressed air car.
All my tools powered by CA.
Mini AC generators.
Permies - lets us lobby Paul to pod this wonderful gift and maybe we can build together a fully working system.
An early morning thought after dreaming of trompe all night - not Donald!!! even though that weave is so sexy!!!
TROMPE everybody, lets trompe!!!TROMPE

- Just a little more info by going to biomost.com , and find and click on ' Products ', then click on ' Trompe passive aeration ' .
Apparently,you can dig a pit to put the 'working part' in and create your own ' head ' 2 min captioned video, no Audio ! Big AL !
