Also I'm not sure you can judge a place if your own actions upon arriving include going straight to the local Dutch gold retailer and hanging about with the junkies.

Not sure Dublin fares any better if judged by Connolly station, the bus terminal or the bus trip from the airport

I dunno about you lot, but I've gone even further down the rabbit hole and am betting bigger than ever.

Any big poker tourneys coming up? Sad to see I've missed the big open

Tell us a bit about it will you? Most of us have to rely on vicarious thrills from betting / degen stories these days. At least there's some still keeping it real, yo.

Just for you Mr Spur.

This is just from today, could only really start at 5:30 as was working all day, but had some fun after that.

Enjoy!






I'll post a big one in a few months if I get to the desired target, but for now it's all just a bit of good craic.

the area around any major train station in Europe usually provides a range of exciting amenities and unusual cultural interactions

I think Gare du Nord in Brussels is up there for scuzz factor

Thoughts on Limerick?
Donegal is much more civilized, but the smaller the town you pick the better. Somewhere along the west or north coast would be your best bet, like Ardara, Dunfanaghy etc

That's for weight and clearly wouldn't affect kids running around like mad things on holidays. There's actually no evidence that kids watching videos has any negative effects at all as long as they eat healthily and run around like normal kids.

My first direct hire started today. I realise this is a regular thing for those of you with normal jobs, but it freaks me out a bit. She was asking me how I'd like her to organise her time and it only then occured to me that higher-up people had always organised that stuff before. Just assumed new staff turned up knowing what they should be doing. So she spent today in her office staring at the screen looking up hopefully everytime I passed by while I smiled anguishedly and sped past thinking 'and what should she be doing?'. There's a grand plan, but just didn't sit down and plan in down to an actual work schedule.

Three more full time staff arriving in September, so should probably read a book on this or something

Use something like Slack or Teams to organise projects and minions. Plan out the tasks as if you were doing them all yourself then start to allocate them to minion as appropriate. Have a weekly 1to1 meeting to discuss progress/obstacles and feedback in both directions.
