Taking action (From Thog's Blog 21/10/2009)

Hi all,
Spent last night looking for environmental petitions to sign up to, and various websites where you can encourage your MPs to take action - are two good ones, I also like the e-petitions on the Governments - I basically just go on, have a look at all the ways I can take action and sign up to the ones I agree with.
Did a carbon footprint test on myself and discovered my footprint is 10.36 tonnes p.a. which is a bit shocking - didn't think it would be so high! You can check yours out at and they'll give you personalised tips on how to reduce it too.
As a result, I've decided to sign up to 10:10 ( This basically says that I'll cut my carbon emissions by 10% in 2010, so I'm planning to do what I can, then by this time next year I'll run the carbon calculator again and see what I get. I would note that although my carbon footprint is high, I do do certain things, like I carshare with 2 other people that don't drive, so although I'm using a car, the 3 of us travelling together makes my emissions a lot better.

Thog Blog V2.0 (From Thog's Blog 19/10/2009)

Hello one and all!
I've decided to restart doing my blog posts, but instead of focusing on WoW and Guild Ravenswing I'll just be doing some random ramblings and rants, it gives me a chance to vent whatever I need to vent (and hopefully it'll be a little amusing too!)
Pretty tired at the minute, just come out the bath after football which went okay I guess. I've got a uni assignment due in this week that I need to finish off but my mind is shutting down so I guess I'll finish it tomorrow night.
Having a lot of trouble selling the house, I have a boarded out loft that hasn't necessarily been done to Building Regs, so although this has always been made clear to the buyer they are kicking up a fuss. Denkai is due to give birth in about 3 weeks and we'd hoped to be moved before the little one arrived (bearing in mind that they first offered on the house back in June) but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.
I'm gonna log and get an early night anyway.
By the way, if anyone wants to follow me or contact me on Twitter I'm now on there - check out RavenswingThog lol!
Cheers, Thog
