Not a likely scenario here in the states, I can tell you that much. I deal with PG&E on a regular basis for work, and it's a giant pain in the ass. They fight you every step of the way, and are simply looking for places to assess fees.I've been dealing with the local power lines authority to get overhead cables buried to remove unsightly & troublesome poles / lines from my ground. Started the negotiation process with low expectations of cooperation, & dread of having to deal with "tick box" protocols, etc. Imagine my surprise when I was able to discuss with someone who actually talked sense, & received full cooperation when there was no obligation on them to do so.
Shocked! (I probably will be when I start trenching around the power cables though)
This was the fight I was expecting. Indeed, 8 years ago, I tried to have the same conversation with the (then) power lines company at the time, & it didn't end well. The authority has since changed, plus I had some leverage because an existing pole was condemned, & they legally have to engage with me on the works / access.

Wine production in England??!!! Scandalous! Réally, scandalous!That's cool they're working with you. That's what I do all day on an urban level. I do drawings to propose underground work like that for telecommunication lines.
But my real comment is: Man, that English countryside is awesome!! Better than the Sierra Nevada foothills. Do people grow wine there? I just looked it up. Seems most English wineries are East of London.
Well, that's my head well and truly messed up. I'd wondered about the semibreve thang before, but luckily I hadn't got any further. Thanks for that.Why is a semibreve also called a "whole note? Surely the semi part indicates that is half of something else (i.e. a breve).
It is worse than that. Why does a "whole note" have four beats? If it is "whole", surely it is "one"?
And while I am here, if you play semiquavers in 7/4, they can't be 16ths can they? They must be 28ths.
Not stupidity. Subconsciously your mind was look for a reason not to like her. Or consciously her mind was looking for something to drive you nuts.Reminds me years ago of a woman I was dating. She would call an "orange an orange" but the "color" was pronounced "urnge". Why I bothered arguing the ridiculousness of that point for the whole time we knew each other is more a testament to my stupidity.
Just to add as to why there was a precedence of '3' and '4' time signatures. '3' in Church music was considered Holy - as in the Trinity. 3/2 was usually denoted by a circle (representing perfection and completion - as is the Trinity, supposedly), however 4/2 was considered imperfect, so the circle was broken.There is a note called a breve, worth eight quarters. Looks like a semibreve with short upright lines at each end. It comes from the middle ages, when the beat was usually in minims (half notes). Most time signatures back then were 4/2 or 3/2.
