An additional bonus to learning about galvanizing was finding that hot-dip galvanized steel is both environmentally and economically sustainable. Why is everyone not already using this?

I am currently rereading all the classic Winnie the Pooh books as an adult. My absolute favorite book of all times is The Boy, the Mole, the Fox and the Horse by Charlie Mackesy. I think everyone should read this book.
