Seathrift, There is no magic generation of energy, you just use energy that is present naturally and free. This free energy comes in the form of using the air as a heatsink. Currently you do not pay for heating or cooling the atmosphere! Maybe soon but not yet! MW, if your heating engineer put your ...

Buy a cheap little generator that can power essentials in dire circumstances. It is pointless designing a system that is best in scenarios which account for 1% of the time.

MW, what side of the system cant you have a UPS on? Ne Razbiram :lol:

Lets not get too excited. As quick as it has made a positive turn for us it could revert the other way.

But it is so much better than the days of 2.05 :lol:

It is good to see people are happy with their lot in BG.

I am sure there are people who are 'trapped' in BG (as in Spain et al) as they could never sell and relocate back to the UK.

Paul, A good choice would be to ski @ Borovets but stay in Samokov. 5-10 Mins away by bus/car. Plus Borovets is far closer to you in VT than Bansko. Many good cheap hotels, restaurants, cafes, shops, ice rink etc in Samokov. If you are used to real BG prices you will be shocked in any of the resorts...

If you take your money out of the euro zone, you will have to play roulette with the exchange rate. Plus incur transfer/exchange fees and the same when the money comes back.

IMO better to have it handy, in the desired currency and that way your exposure is some what reduced to fluctuations.

We stuck our money in this for 12 months: http://www.postbank.bg/TransformationService.asmx/XHTML?strXML=/en-US/Individuals/02Savings/011SpecialOffer/ Probably not the best rate on the street, but up there with the top%. Also our money was already in postbank and so was easier to set up. :)
