      I'd like to get more and more into it over the next while, be nice to have a handy resource to easily read back over.

        Ignorance is definitely bliss in wine drinking. I like to be halfway through a bottle before I pull out the vivino to see how my ignorance matches up

          In financial services it’s definitely going to become a must have to be able to successfully WFH policy at lest 2-3 days a week I reckon.
          I'm already seeing it from the people contacting me about jobs, and tbh if somebodies company does not offer it and the competition do, people will move. Being at home around 3 days a week would be perfect for me, it's a great enhancement to how I feel in general. Less stressed, more energy, working more efficiently and so on.

                  Seems to be largely irrelevant in terms of the election is the obvious problem - looks like nothing will be public before November.

                          I know of one place in town well known for Karaoke that was serving free platters since it opened and there's no way in hell you could social distance in there.

                                Looks like Mr Bald got a right auld dose of the Covid. Not too surprising considering he was deliberately going to places with no lockdowns.

                                          Belfast city council are offering compensation to families who were denied access to the crematorium last week while at the same time Mary Lou, Gerry, Michelle and the IRA Army council were allowed stage a second gathering there. Whole story grows more bizarre by the day.

                                              CNN are trying to have it both ways too. I'd like to see more Trump supporters turn up at his rallies. Take off their masks while their at it, and maybe spit on each other to express their 2nd amendment rights.

                                                I did know someone who did a bit of soldering for them and I got to see what the outcome of their electronics projects was.

                                                        I can't understand why you wouldn't be delighted at the increased chance of Gerry and Mary-Lou getting Covid and having a more painful death than they might otherwise have.

Someone was berating me yesterday because she has apparently 'researched 1000s of buildings'. Seems she has no PhD and never published any research. I'm not saying either of those are particularly important for knowing something, but her perspective is meant to be research expertise.
                                                                              The only supporting research I've ever seen her post is her own Irish Times article.

                                                                                                        Had a difficult day where I got bounced against my better judgement into having my father who was a bit more confused than usual and a bit lethargic than usual admitted to hospital. When he left in the ambulance it was clear that he wasn't going to be coming home again because once he's admitted to hospital the homecare package he is on will be cancelled and then he would only be discharged to a nursing home. That is on the agenda for the medium term but the only place we are comfortable for him to go to is still not accepting people after a terrible covid outbreak and I'm worried that we could end up having to go to wherever is available as hospital will want him out sooner rather than later.
                                                                                                        After 7 hours waiting to see a doc it ended up that he came back to himself , not a thing wrong with him that they can improve in hospital so most unexpectedly the A&E consultant doesn't want to admit him and was ordering up an ambulance to send him home. That's great but then I got caught in a standoff between homecare and the hospital. Hospital don't do covid tests in A&E , only for admitted patients and homecare won't come back to anyone who has been in hospital unless they have a negative test result. In fairness that sounds like a reasonable position and appears to be backed up by hse policy. Hospital were having none of it and it took a while for them to agree to do the swab in A&E so all going well he'll be coming back tomorrow!

                                                                                                                  "Some people feel that we were speaking on behalf of Dublin when we wrote Dogrel. The album is influenced by Dublin, but I don’t feel like I’ve any licence to speak for Ireland"

                                                                                                                  "We wanted to capture the underbelly of LA, but what we had was too polished."

                                                                                                                  Lol. Lisa Simpson goes to rock school.

Have it narrowed down to either Granville (optimistically called by itself 'the Monaco of the North'), Bayeux (of tapestry fame), or Caen (as there's a dinky amusement park there that might keep the kids entertained). I'm fully aware of the rule that nothing good has ever happened in Normandy, but has anyone spent any time in any of those places and would recommend or not recommend? Bayeux strikes me as the classic potential one-trick pony, with a tapestry that is probably as dull as the book of kells and where every shop and cafe will likely be tapestry themed. Although from the photos it looks quite nice. Caen looks a bit happening but ordinary. Granville looks not up to much but is highly recommended on the regional touristic bodies which tend to put their best foot forward in where they recommend going.
                                                                                                                    I'd move an hour further west and stay in St malo. It really is a lovely place. We're staying there in August for a week then also taking the ferry from cherbourg
