Anyone for a canary?

 A crane went up in O'Connell St. I guess they are going to refurbish the GPO to get it ready for the celebrations next year. 1916 The Easter rising   2016.  100 years and a lot of bloodshed later.
Did you ever see a crane building a crane before?

Did you know that a very clever Irishman invented"aircraft leasing"
Tony Ryan founded Guinness Peat Aviation, it went bust, a lot of the guys who worked for him used the model to set up their own very successful companies.but Tony Ryan went on to establish Ryanair.

So when they decided to have a world symposium on aircraft leasing they chose Dublin for the venue.
Every posh hotel booked out for the week.
Limos by the mile everywhere.

Do you remember that I bought a PayPal Chip and Pin card reader which didn't work here?
PayPal said there were legal issues, I pointed out that banking was now streamlined through the EU.
Well this little baby comes available to HailO drivers next week. There are over 500 on order already !
I told PayPal that they would be loosing out if they didn't sort themselves out quick.
They as good as said "Hump Off"

 Another week gone.
Elvis would have been 80 if he was not dead.

On Sunday last I got a run out to Firhouse  Tallagh, on arrival there was a massive bird market taking place. I asked how often this happens and was told that it is an annual event like the horse fairs once a year only.

Did you know there is a bird market on Peter St.every Sunday? Its parallel to Bishop St.

Sorry for not keeping up but thanks a lot for dropping by.
