Exams


Clontarf Castle, you can get a room there on the net at a good price,sometimes.
Take a look inside,its like Cafe En Scene well worth a look.

Detail over a pub in Ringsend.


Yes the weather has improved so it must be exam time.
Students looking for the RDS in Ballsbridge, Other kids sitting their intermediate and leaving certificate exams.
Good luck to you all.
I will be sure to be off when you all go wild on the last day.
Exams are not the be all and end all, the richest man in Ireland is Sean Quinn who left school at 15, made his money in sand and gravel, later on he made blocks and roof tiles. Then he graduated to a cement factory, then to glass making then to hotels,pubs and golf courses. Quinn insurance is also a big money spinner...He has a lot of brains..Perhaps school would have curbed his style.

One big advantage of the schools being off is that the traffic is lighter.

Once more concerts are keeping up the business up. Malahide had its big day and once more the powers that be made no allowances for a taxi holding area, or even an access route for taxis to enter the venue and pick up again.
Seems a pity that the powers that are in charge hate taxis so much that they make the public suffer, I would love someone to sue the promoters for the inconvenience.
Then you would have to prove malicious intent.

Stupidity is not against the law.

Concert tickets are not selling so well any more and the touts (Scalpers)are finding themselves stuck with tickets, the scam is now reversed on them.
Trying to unload tickets for e50, the very tickets they paid e120 for and hoped to sell for e250.

Tom Waits is appearing in a tent in the Pheonix park tickets e130 plus booking fee.
He moves on to the UK where I was told the tickets only cost 60 quid in a seated area which has full transport facilities laid on.
Prince has canceled his gig Neil Diamond has also failed to sell out. Eric Clapton and Neil Young are also finding it hard to sell out their concerts.
Or perhaps people are getting a bit of cop on, most of these guys are well beyond their best before selling date.

I went down to the ferry a few times, she rolls in a few times a day and there are always a few people in a hurry.
Last week when all the taxis were loaded up a group of Americans approached looking for taxis, We were all heading off so they would have to wait for the bus, there would be no more taxis making the 3 mile drive down to the ferry terminal..They were a bit miffed but in life its the early bird that catches the taxi.

Another place worth swinging past is Croke park, they have a big conference center there,remember last week cluster bombs,this week it was International bar society. Next week you tell me.
Pickd up 3 people, real globe trotters,"Are you going to Nassau?" "No I am going to Istanbul, I have a long standing arrangement to be there."Seems as though the three will meet again in Argentina,,,
The ladies law firm paid a e15 fare with e30 and a big hug for the last guy who was the elder senior guy.
He would have made a great taxi driver,he had a yarn a minute.
He wanted to pay me again, but I said that the lady had paid for everyone,he muttered something about taxi drivers being an honest bunch and off he went.

One of his tales.
A guy from Puerto Rico meets his Irish counterpart. "Seamus in your language do you have a word for Manyana".
Seamus thought long and hard and after a while he drew a deep breath.

"We do in a kind of a way have a similar word,
But in our language the word does not convey the same sense of urgency"

Another one was about John Paul Gettys car had not turned up so he hailed a taxi cab. When he reached his home he gave the cabby the fare +10c tip.
The taxi driver looked at the money.
"Is anything wrong?" said Mr Getty.
"Well I have often brought your son home and he allways gives me $1 tip."

"Oh that would be right, he has a very wealthy father"said Mr Getty

His uncle drove a taxi in New York for 32 years, retired and moved to California after 3 years he sold up and went back to New York, couldn't stand the quietness of California.
He himself had fought in Korea and he later crashed his plane on a search and rescue mission.
Broke his back and spent a lot of time on heavy drugs for the pain before Uncle Sam paid $250,000 for a device to be placed in his spine to kill the pain.
"He sure looked after me" Were his parting words.

He really was a big cog in the wheel of law,friend of Bill and Hilary,spoke of his time working with the government in Turkey.
Well the three will be meeting again in Argentina, where this time they will become firmer friends.

A good barrister knows the law.
A great barrister knows the judge!

Now for something completely different.

Its not what you think so bare with me...



Well I hope you enjoyed that.

I am always on the lookout for unusual cars here is a 1996 Ferrari 308 GTBI QV
I saw it in Ranelagh and you buy it from Michael Tynan motors for e38,000
You can find it on carzone.ie(Photo did not copy)
For my American readers take a look at out car prices www.motormarket.ie

Cars in the states are very cheap,
Perhaps we will have to trade in our cars soon to pay for the petrol

  1. On Thursday night I caught up with the “Eric Clapton Tour 2008” For all the concerts I’ve attended in my life, it was the first time I took in an Eric Clapton show. And it was so great for two reasons, I attended his concert for the first time and I got cheap Tickets ; the night was wonderful and special for me.
    For every Eric Clapton fan, or someone who has a great appreciation for truly excellent music, I urge you to see him live, and don’t worry about tickets, I used to compare them for FREE at Ticketsreview.com and get the cheapest ones. So don’t miss to attend his next concert. Here is the link:

    This is because they have a high number of satisfied clients who have purchased likes
    and fans in bulk and are reaping the immense benefits.

    A lot of organizations do not recognize Facebook, so it could
    be a enormous benefit to you if you construct a sizable fan-page and have thousands
    of followers. It gives you info such as fan interaction and visitor
