It’s a long way

About time I got my Ireland Adventure shirt shots up online. . The one I’ve gone with is was take at Europe’s most westerly point.. but I nearly went with this one, with the caption… Contrary to popular belief, Tipperary was not that much of a long way after all. To be sure, to be sure.

Not such a ‘smart car’ now is it? This was the scene outside Blues Bar Harrogate at dusk this evening when TT, one of the regulars left his smart car parked outside whilst he went bowling – to play for the Blues Bar bowling team I might add. It got worse. A work of art – shrine like candles were… Read more →

Just saw this woman in town. She had the longest hair I’ve ever seen. It was a huge single dreadlock, about 5 foot long. There was a ball at the bottom that was lifting further hair off the ground. The woman may have been in her 70’s. Respect to the woman who made something her life mission, and stuck to… Read more →

Hello. It was another beautiful sunny day here in Dublin and my dad babies and I went to the pat pat farm. I was expecting just a farm courtyard and some animals to pat but Airfield completely amazed me. Firstly there were no animals to pat except some horses even smaller then shetland ponies (the original ‘my little ponies’) and… Read more →

______Actual size________ My new phone is ace. Been geeking out on it. Who would have though it 15 years ago, that a something smaller than a box of smokes could carry a camera, 3 video games, an FM radio, a digital stereo, a dictator machine, a phone book, a calendar, a notepad, a picture viewer, a web browser, an answer… Read more →

Greetings from Ireland. It is a bit hard typing with a broken wrist so please excuse the shortness. Arrived late last night. The kids were so excited they literally ran constantly till they were strapped in the aeroplane but by the time we reached Dad’s my plan of travelling late to wear them out had worked and they slept as… Read more →

By now Eirene should be in Ireland.. dropped her off last night at the airport. I’m hoping to catch her up next week (Van permitting – need some bits and bobs sorting out on her first). Dave is back from his travels. He’s been out 11 months. Good outing by the sound of things. Went out for a couple of… Read more →

Fantastic weekend. Apart from one thing – Eirene broke her arm. It’s now in a pot. Stumbling about on a dark camp site did the trick. Ahh well. We were out in a field near Harewood at our friends baba’s ‘welcome the world’ gathering. About 50 of us turned up. This was a photo taken on the sundown of Saturday… Read more →

How strange. Raw Horseflesh ice cream. Only in Japan. I thought that the hoarse must be a gimmick one off or something but there are loads of bizarre ice creams from different manufacturers. Soe of the best (er I mean worse) beside hoarse would be GARLIC !, whale, salt water, silk, Stout, the list goes on – the only good… Read more →
