I was in town yesterday and saw pubs,restraints and other shops getting the windows cleaned and painting their facades all in preparation for the big reopening.
The Lord loves an optimist.
For myself I do not see an opportunity to resume in the taxi business.
On the bright side I do not have a landlord breathing down my neck looking for rent.
Oh for the joy of being an old fart !
Our woes will pass and in 10 years we will be able to laugh about our present fix.
I broke a tooth, one of the big ones at the back. It was not sore for 2 days and then it got a bit soreer.
I rang my regular dentist but he was busy, booked up, no vacancies..
1asked Mr.Google for help and he said Smile Hub Dental Clinic in Bayside.
They are just starting up.Open 7.30am to 10 pm 365 days a year, with a doctors surgery and skin a treatment place in the same building.
That is one great idea. I really hope that it takes off.
Are you old enough to remember when the banks opened up at 10 am closed for lunch from 1pm until 2 then closed again at 4 pm for the day? Banks are closing down for good now all over the place.
The Central bank is keeping them under their thumb so they are not getting away with the sharp stunts they are used to pulling. I got my bank fined €200 by complaining to the financial ombudsman. Perhaps the next time they will not dismiss my request so easily.
Just on my local bank. The teller was very dismissive. "Put in your pin number now" The account opened with more than a €40,000 balance.Her face lit up like a Christmas tree. "Well hello. How are you keeping today?"
I was importing 2 cars from Japan so I had a fair poke of money and the next day all the money was gone.
I did OK with those cars.Toyota Prius forever.
One of my sons was on the phone just now and he told us about a guy he used to work with in Northern Ireland.
His specialty was tree removal and he was good at his job.He had an accident and his 2 year old son was killed..
Now that is real disaster God bless them and keep them.
Ask your God to pray for them
