The Seven-Year Switch
A Welsh bachelor has finally seen the light and had his home wired up for electricity. Hubert Hilling, 60, is thrilled: "It's fantastic. I keep switching the lights on and off," he said. "They all come on at once instead of having to be lit with a match." But he still makes a daily five-minute walk to a well to fill two buckets.
