Get a portrait of your pet, the money paid will be given to a pet charity, nice one
They say you can predict the economy by the length of the hemline, the higher the hemline the better the economy.. We are in for hard' times for sure.
Well I had a post all set to go. I pressed publish post and went to bed.
The post is gone off to the land of OZ leaving me to start again.
First thing I suppose is that Snow Patrol did an impromptu gig in the Brussels bar the other day..I don't know if it was for Guinness or the tourist board.
Then we had Westlife in Croke park, Mothers,children and grandmothers all in pink hats..It is some money spinner. There was not a hotel room empty in the city.
One lady from London had me say "The top of the mornin t' ya" three times into her Iphone, I was dropping off an Italian couple when I saw that London lady again so I shouted over "The top of the mornin ta ya" and got a great response.
Just to say the Italian couple were young and had a good time, but he told me that what surprised him were the "number of people looking for coins" (begging)
Begging is a real problem here in Dublin.
The Docklands festival was on with tall ships and market stalls along the quays.
Plus on the Bull island Clontarf surf magic held a huge kite surfing event. Sadly one thing was missing, WIND so I would mostly say it was a flop, I would really like my son to take it up this summer.
But over on the West coast they had a surfing event which put other surfer spots in the shade.
But surfing is the thing to do at Doolin
Just thought this might excite the' rest of you
The weather was really kind to us it was Sunday before we got some rain, the first in weeks.
Sunny Ireland is fantastic, never too oppressive and all the people look so much better.
One of the guys on my rank had a heart attack 40, looked fit enough.
Taxi driving is a stressful occupation, but not worth dying over.
There fatal hit and run accident with one of those illegal drivers that I go on about, he was pursued by a driver who saw what happened and was caught.
I don't know if it was this ore something else .But I picked up a taxi driver who told me that "In 9 days time there is going to be something really big in the news about these illegal drivers which will shock even you"
Now he would say no more,but it would be Tuesday for his News...
I will keep you posted.
No matter what happens there is a taxi near by. In Cumbria a taxi driver went berserk and killed 12 people. one taxi blogger from the area makes his post here
