That scenario is fine Marty, just remember that the local pub and the local shop have to spend a lot money on power for refrigeration, who's gunna pay for the increase there ?? that will hurt, you wait and see.
Plus the increased cost of home refrigeration, unless you enjoy warm beer, sour milk and rancid butter :lol: :lol:

Marty, wherever we are going, I guess we are on the way like it or not. ;)

You've got enough material in that last post for a topical verse. :)

But Glenny and Marty, I don't think pubs, clubs, supermarkets and bulk transporters are going to manage very well on meat safes with cloths hung over them or kerosene fridges.

If they were not open 24 hours a day they would save on power Nev.

The shops used to close a 6 pm and somehow no one starved to death.
