Ahoy me maties .....! and apologies for missing " International Talk Like a Pirate Day " which appears to have been on 19th September. My Cider musical knowledge is quite limited, but after drinking "Roger Wilkins" farmhouse cider, you start to appreciate its light hearted nature. Stockhausen just doesn't cut it. As for catching more lobsters, I think it's time to put out the storm anchors, as there seems some imminent deepening areas of low pressure on the horizon. Reefing Ahoy...! me maties.
Amazing results + great future prospects and news to come : "All our twelve overseas subsidiaries had record years. Together with the contribution of our 35 international distributors, 60% of global revenue was generated outside of the United Kingdom - the highest level ever. Our Malaysian subsidiary started trading in July and we will commence sales in India this year. We have made our first submission for regulatory approval to Health Canada, and we are progressing well with our FDA submission. International expansion will continue to be a key growth driver for the Group".

So Merc are invested here. Sodium being a less polluting, more abundant material than Lithium and easier to transport safely. Energy density is currently not as high as Lithium equivalents but material science marches on. JLR, Toyota and McLaren are involved in commercialising Ilika's Goliath solid state battery that uses lithium orthosilicate, glass and sulfides which results in a high energy density and very fast recharge times. I guess the Tier 1's have done their homework for EV's. Perhaps the sodium battery may be better suited to corporation E-Scooters etc, given there safer characteristics. Interesting.

@Barchid Glad you appreciated the subtle musical nuances of the Wurzels. Their music, never falling far from the tree, will always be preserved in the fermented juice of the apple and hearts of Zider drinkers everywhere. ... If you have been in the Glastonbury Festival when the cider bars are closing, you will hear this sounds across most of Somerset ............. ZiiiiDddddeeeeeerrrr ....!

£20,000 and £30,000 for the gold plated version. Apart from your pocket, I recommend having your ears tested first, as a retired sheet metal worker (example) may be paying for frequencies no longer available and compromising their appreciation of such classics as "Drink Up Thy Zider" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SdMfLJfZD54. ..... Automotive noise cancelling algorithm, generating anti / opposite waveforms to unwanted cabin noise. Yes, a number of companies are starting to use this technology and it does sound a positive prospect. As long as the algorithm can distinguish unwanted noise from the Wurzels, then thats fine by me. Thank you for the "Roger Wilkins" cider tip. I will seek it out. Helga Geerhart would have been a great cast for "Panzer Tank Commander And The Milkmaid". I leave you with a Wurzels classic (before Oasis ruined it) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7F6Jnrqa4c . PS. Warwick Audio are now a Buy ***

Ref. the WA electrostatic speakers - I get the reduced package space, weight and high to mid-range quality; what I would be interested to understand is the power consumption compared to conventional voice coil systems ("Audio function cancelled to conserve vehicle range")and how the bass / sub bass compares . As for closed electrostatic headphones that generate more heat because of higher energy consumption, how do you keep your ears cool? After freakin to the "Wurzels" for an hour with two radiators strapped to your head, your going to need a shower. I await electrostatic enlightenment (Ooh ar ooh ar).

Peruvian self-inflating marsh frogs. Wow...! this is the board must surely win a prize for topic diversification.
Peruvians do make frog smoothies. Possible schnapps ****tail - "Harvey Frog Banger" (best served with frozen assets) Ref. RNS & W.A. - I hope they are successful, but not something I would invest in. One for the audiophiles (people that listen to under age music).
