Sorry this camera photo is so bad.
Glass on the road and a girls sandal? Think about it.
East Wall the Swiss Cheese building
The Aviva stadium known as the "Urban Turban"
A baby waves from a flat in North King St.
What do you think about all the Russian spies getting caught?.
Do you any of you need a place to hide?
The other day A guy got into the car, he was going to get the bus into town then another bus out to the airport to hire a car.
So I talked him into taking a taxi directly there.
He was an Indian guy working in London at IT.
Well, during the trip to the airport I found out that he was about to do a very dangerous thing.
(at least I think so)
Think about this, he was going to surprise his girlfriend by dropping in!
Now that seems to me to such a bad idea,it is so full of pitfalls, she might be away for the weekend, or she might have planned to go out with the girls, or she might be on a date with a charming taxi driver she just met.
Fine, make a visit but say,
"Can I pop over to see you this weekend"?
The scope for things going wrong are endless.
I hope it went well mate.(I told him about the blog)
Do you want a hen house, this guy makes them.(www.thegoodlife.ie)
I would love to know why links only sometimes work.
Just spent 2 hours cruising around looking for work and got nothing, so I am back at home, still I am lucky compared to most people, I own my house.
I was passing a lady in a BMW changing a flat wheel, so I asked if she needed help, she accepted gracefully.
So many people when you offer help are agressive.
It is a real bitch to get a wheel back on when there is no stud to hang the wheel on again, so I got it on and my hands were dirty. She asked me in to wash my hands,and folks she lived in an absoute palace.
Its not what it seems, she said, we bought this house and then spent over €400,000 doing it up. My husband was a builder and now we are divorced and into incredible negative equity.
The bank want to sell it and even then I will owe money.
She showed me an amazing feature in the kitchen, she hit a switch and a panel in the floor opened up to reveal a cellar which ran under the garden.
The house was so fantastic that I thought Ozzy Osbourne was going to walk in any minute.
Makes you think how many people are really suffering behind the beautiful facades.
No,I am counting my blessings, I am not not gloating.
A Spanish women seemed lost around Kilmainham, so I offered to give them directions. Car hire, yes Avis over there,, no Hertz. Well you are a long way from there, you have to go back up to Guinnesses up Dinore ave, turn left at Sally's bridge past the Mosque and there it is.
I will run both you there for €5.00 it is 1 1/2 miles.
Normal Sunday fare €8.00
No, we will walk.
Now I think that if you hire a car from 3.00pm the charges start from then, so It was costing them money there and then.
Perhaps I don't have an honest face!
I am a bit angry at the Garda too!
Well I saw a black Skoda car with an Irish number plate 01 D 87571
So what? you say.
Well there was a Northern Ireland number plate under the Irish plate, I could see the yellow edge of the plate undrneath.
So I dialed 112 and passed the details, "What do you mean it has 2 number plates?" so I tried to explain and I then saw a Garda car coming along. I started to talk to them and stopped the car
"Are you on medication"? I said
Then he screwed down the window to ask me what I meant,SO I gave him the number of the car, "Its 2 minutes in front of you"
How do you spell your name?
So off they went.
10 minutes later they were going the other way eating cake!
You often hear how people report crimes all the time and nothing is done about it ..Tax out of date? car gone.
Mauritian radio here, there are loads of modern stations.
