Jack Russell

The statue of Sean Russell has been vandalized again. So I googled him. One way or another it is hard on his relatives, reading through some of the stuff the IRA did not see him as a Nazi.
"I am not a Nazi. I am not even pro-German. I am an Irishman fighting for the independence of Ireland" - Sean Russell

You live and learn, when you stop learning you die.

This morning I got up early and trawled the streets looking for work. I got a bit,even picked up the same guy I picked up yesterday going to a different destination,he tips well too.

After my breakfast the work was gone along with the early morning dew.
I couldn't even get near a rank, I cruised around picking up little until I decided to head home again. But I got little to nothing.

Yesterday I was down at the port where there was a line of taxis. I stopped behind them and went into the terminal building to use the toilet.
On the way out I walked up to the ticket desk.
"Hi have the foot passengers come out yet?"
"They are long gone,we are loading up now" Was her reply.
When I went outside I walked past around a dozen cars and told the driver behind my car that they were all long gone.
I turned around and as I was driving past the queue from the other side when I saw that the car that was behind me had moved up into my space.

Do these guys leave their brains at home? No work here !

We had a crackling on the phone line for months so we called the phone people, they came with a threat that if nothing was wrong they would have to charge us.
They renewed the phone line to the pole on the road.
Now the telephone line is crystal clear, I can at last hear the heavy breather on the line.

Last week in the morning this beautiful liner pulled into Dublin. I had some passengers going to the ferry and pulled into the liners berth to take a photo. Problem was a mad security guard insisted we should take no photos, pity he had not turned on its "cloaking device", so I got my photo from the other side of the river.
Click on the photo to see how big it is.

I would love to do a cruise with the magician Rene Levand. I will be meeting him in London in the Autumn.In spite of loosing his right arm he provides fantastic magic on cruise ships coming from South America.

The girl doing the English has a fantastic magic act in her own rite. Tina Lenert
This act took her around the world as it is a silent act it works everywhere.
(A bit like the taxi regulator which is a silent act but does not work)

This weekend in Dublin we have magician Keith Barry.
After he made this piece he had a very bad car crash,nearly lost his leg.
Lucky for him he was in Northern Ireland at the time.

Here is a guy with an acidic sense of wit

What does a tight rope walker fear? Wasps
What do dogs hate ? Cats

What do taxi drivers hate most? Cyclists

I wonder why?

There are a good few clips of couriers in New York as well


  1. Well John I gotta say that was a nice picture of that ship, pity about the hassle over trying to get the picture though

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
    and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and
    she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I hope this is okay with you. In case you'd like me to change the title or perhaps remove it completely, e-mail me at Many thanks.
