        Trump related but not 538 or Twitter: https://www.foreignaffairs.com/artic...-world-war-iii

        I've said it in the past but FA must be the best value pay-for publication @$35 a year.

            New lad in work who started 3 weeks ago arrives into work today with a cough that he didnt have last week and not looking the.best. Boss sent him home, told him to get tested and not come back for 14 days whether hes positive or not. Surely some people are just thick still doing that kind of stupid thing at this stage.

            Comment


              Oh and his girlfriends dad had a test before the weekend tested positive today. Moronic stuff.

                      Last lockdown the weather was glorious and there was a bit of a novelty factor. Many people going to go postal this time round unfortunately. At least the kids are out of the house. Embrace the grimness.

                            Unless you have the resources to do something similar to the NBA bubble which had players completely isolated for almost 3 months then GAA and other Elite sports should be put on hold.

                            Even besides the actual additional risk of transmission, I think GAA fans are happy enough for it to be postponed.

                                  At least with this lockdown, the news on vaccinations is so good that at least we have an end in sight.

                                        Irish times reporting that it's only the ceremony and not the reception that can have 25 so won't really be doable given the travel restrictions to ask folks to show up for 25 mins and then piss off

                                                Big moves today but no real events underlining them. Weird.

                                                                                  I wouldn't really blame anyone at this juncture.

                                                                                  I remember going to the Grand National once with my auld fella, well after the Warrington bomb and strict security (post-IRA cancellation too I think). I spent all night dancing with a Wirral wedding party in a hotel and going to visit the scene of the crime later. Simple Minds nor The Cranberries mattered then.

                                                                                  What odds? Who knows.

I'm trying to weigh up, do I sacrifice the social aspect of my current course which is 25 mins away for the convenience of a course 1min away.

There's meant to be a €5k joining fee . Although I believe that was reduced to only €1.5k (3 years x €500 + annual sub) . My club is 10 mins away and has a nice small practice area plus I know plenty of members. The next course is about 25 mins away and has no joining fee. It's a newer course that's a bit tougher and has good facilities. However the social side of things is poor and I can't imagine driving an hour just to do a quick practice session.

                                                                                              Looking at all the retired ould fellas schooling me and enjoying their rounds is fantastic. Delighted I picked it up, great to think that I have a new sport that I can play for the next 30+ years.

                                                                                                Yeah the high joining fees are a little hard to stomach post Celtic Tiger but clearly people are willing to pay them. My membership was 850e for 15 months with 100e in lessons & 100e in bar credit. I maintain a similar rate until I pass "Intermediate" but still under 1k.

                                                                                                The other course has a great offer of 600e as it's regarded as a better course but gap is narrowing. It goes up to circa 1k-1.2k thereafter depending on where Intermediate to full membership occurs.

                                                                                                I'm so glad I kept with it after lockdown as I was at my wits end. A couple of 40pt+ rounds has me down to 15 now but I might be the worst 15 handicap golfer in the country. Yeah it's the longevity of it that is the most appealing but if I don't start even out driving these auld lads soon the frustration may start setting in again.
