    Here are the two together, I don't mind wind generators, but would like to see the irrigation type all over the world

    My front yard. The windmill originally belonged to my wife's grandparents. We moved it here when their old house was torn down.

    I have been looking over a couple of weekends and found a windpomp about 100km outside of Sydney. I guess they are becoming scarce :D
