Ah, OK. Somehow I got that they hadn't been vaccinated. It must be a huge relief to know that they are vaccinated.

They both work in the NHS so they were some of the first guin..., people, vaccinated. :)

sometimes. theycome in big sacksthatweigh a thousand kilos each, and i carry 22 of em.

sometimets times they go into those pellet stoves, but tbr people ive talked to use em for mixing in with liquid oil field spills or manure, so you move stuff around with a front end loader

Can never be too sure about what Billy is telling us. That is what makes him so interesting.  Pallets....note the spelling, are the wooden frames that stuff is stacked upon prior to storage or transport..  Pellets are what rabbits poop, or in the case of wood pellets what the fire is made from, or if another kind of pellets it is the projectile that is emitted from a sling or air rifle.

lol

somretimes im not sure about what im saying

tbe wood pellets come in giant supetsacks, one to a 48-inch pallet. drawstring closure. theyre little pieces of chopped hardwoid, sometimes burned in woodstoves and sometimes used as an absorbant medium for chemical spills or to thicken liquid wastes so they can be disposed of in a landfill.

theyre a bitch to carry, because they have no fixed shape and travelling down the road makes the pellets settle, so the straps get loose and the sacks squeeze out from under

carrying steel is vadtly easier, or any rigid object

It is well known that our world would be in deep shit without  long haul truckers.  Trucks bring everything from Blueberries to toilet paper. Not as well realized, they also bring the essential chemicals that purify our city water.
