Very true, they have been doing it for years, in the Untied States, but
after googling for days, I can't find anyone in the UK who is doing
this.  Maybe it is because the balloons end up in the Atlantic, very
much a worry for me.

If anyone has any info on this in the UK (I know this is getting off
topic) I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks for the links!
