As you can see I’ve gone and changed the theme and layout again. This is me decorating the blog for Christmas. We’ve got Mal in the snow up the top, although that is from a sad episode, but still, snow equals Christmas.

So I mentioned that I got my rat when I was back home in Sligo, and said I might post a pic. So ta-da: meet Terry. And while I’m at it, here are two photos I took on the phone while taking the dog for a walk. As you can see plenty of grey sky but very little snow. InRead more

That’s right, it has faded from the news, with its o-so-catchy name of H5N1, no longer are the scare-mongerers’ mongerings taken seriously. In fact they aren’t even listened to. But IRead more
Emily O’Reilly reckons sex, alcohol and money are no substitute for religion. Nobody ever said they were. But as many Irish priests have eagerly demonstrated down the years, why choose one when you can have all four?

Well I’m back. And guess what? While the rest of the world had weather problems what did I have to put up with? Nothing but sleet and rain. How boring is that?

It’s what Caesar did, and he’s not going around saying, “I came, I conquered, I felt really bad about it.” The history of the world isn’t people making friends. You had better weapons, and you massacred them. End of story.
I’m gone. But not wanting to neglect this auld blog I’ve set up a post or two for over the weekend. Today (hopefully) is Thanksgiving and while normally I don’t really care, this year I get the day off. Yeah for colleges affiliated with American ones And I’m taking Friday off work too. So long weekend in store for me.Read more

Was watching The Panel last night and they brought up the whole Willie O’Dea scandal, and I had been meaning to blog about it last week, but then everyone was joining in so I didn’t bother. But now I think I may as well introduce you all to the Irish Minister for Defence There he is in all his finery.Read more
Gestolen from My Little Empire we have a movie meme The rules: Pick 10-20 films you loved/thoroughly enjoyed. Find screen captures (stills) for each film. If you can’t find a still, pick a new movie.

Lovely Jubbly, because I wasn’t actually watching the tellyRead more
