Not An Improvement

Meanwhile, on the other side of the fence, Brian Cowen was heard to say that the employment situation would “disimprove” during the summer. What’s the matter Brian, does the word “worsen” get stuck in the gullet or are you hoping we’re all too daft to know what a disimprovement is?

Enda Kenny – Empty Promises

I don’t usually blog about politics; but with the country in the economic strife that it’s in I’m guess I’m more keenly aware of what our politicians are up to. If there’s one thing that really gets my gall up is empty rhetoric from politicians and Enda Kenny is the latest to step up to…

World Autism Day

Arrived around 10:45 and Jon said, “There’s a lesson starting at 11:00, why not join it?”. So rather than think about it for another week and get…

Surf's Up!

Or rather it’s up for sale! This Sunday, 21st September 2008, at 10:00 Jon Hynes over at Garrettstown Surf School is having an end of season equipment sale (I’m sure he also said something about free coffee; but don’t quote me on that). See ya there dude.
