    I played Bunclody Golf Club yesterday. One of the finest courses I've played in Ireland with an amazing clubhouse to go with it. Can highly recommend if anybody was so inclined.

      Always thought Bunclody was one of the nicest towns in Ireland. Off the beaten track and all the better for it.

          Lots of facebook logic and false equivalence knocking about, most of it probably on facebook.
          We don't seem to care too much about mutations when it comes to third world countries getting vaccines

            I used to spend a bit of time in Bunclody as a child felt like a different planet then! That whole area between the Barrow and Slaney is beautiful, some great spots for a quiet break.

              The rollout in the third world is not currently being constrained by supply.
              We could and should give as many people as possible here a third dose without any need for hand wringing about depriving others of vaccine.

              Mutations can and will happen everywhere, we should be every bit if not more concerned about mutations that emerge successfully in highly vaccinated populations, they are the ones that could send us back to 2020.

                One thing you hear a lot from the anti-vaxx crowd is that the vaccines are not approved. Well not fully approved anyway. I think if the EMA were to fully approve some of the vaccines, like the FDA did, at least this argument could be knocked on the head.

                        You think people are intentional withholding vaccines from third world countries?
                        Not sure what you're getting at tbh.


                        Edit to clarify
                        Talking about first world countries withholding. Obvious the Tanzanian or wherever government being in covid denial and actively hindering their citizens is a different matter.

                          I did too. In passing at least. I just didn't connect that song to the band at the time.

                              Ah not getting at anything really. Just mean countries with low levels of vaccines are likely to create mutations more than the small percentage of unvaccinated here

                                That 10% are making a decent effort at fucking up our health system for the rest of us, and the people who work in it.

                                    Yeah, any population where it’s travelling about unchecked is a risk. It’s one thing if people are unvaccinated because they don’t have access to a vaccine, or their government won’t recognise it.
                                    But a bit different is people are not vaccinated because they couldn’t be bothered.

                                        I doubt there's very few in the 'couldn't be bothered' cohort.

                                            I mentioned it yesterday also, and think its correct - there's not 10% of gobshites walking around. The unvaccinated are nearly exclusively 12-17-year-olds whose parents don't think its a good idea for them, and a few 18-24-year-olds who are remmants of that system. I'm not suggesting the parents aren't gobshites - but their rationale could well be the right rationale for their kids. So blocking people entry to pubs won't solve any problems. Its at the parental level rather than the jbravado level of conspiracy bullshitology that we need to be addressing our efforts.

                                              Current vaccinations by age group. Shows that 364,800 people who are aged 10 to 19 have been vaccinated so far. HSE covid vaccine centre data.

                                              azgMH3Tl.jpg


                                              2016 census, and therefore a likely underestimate of that population, shows the population in that age group is 622,292. CSO data.


                                              xLic0X2.png





                                              So that age group of 10-19 is only 364800/622292 = 59% vaccinated. And those missing 300,000 unvaccinated kids are nearly all of the remaining people to be vaccinated. The kids - or more accurately - their parents - are almost the only problem we face with vaccination.

                                                        just had the winning bid in a charity auction at work. 4 ball at sunningdale with Charlie Atkinson (wasps fly half) plus lunch and drinks, for cheaper than the cost of 2 rounds at the golf course which is usually 300 quid a round per person . sounds like a good day out in perspective.

                                                              There's always deals featuring
                                                              the previous generation models then.

                                                              Also consider the Microsoft Surface Pro
                                                              as their OneNote software is spectacular
                                                              for note taking in the classroom.

                                                                Also would there be blank Friday deals somewhere.

Surprisingly Apple never finished coding out the bug to support more than 1 external monitor using the M1. There is a workaround but it means buying dongles and specific docking stations.

                                                                                        Also there are reports of lots of thunderbolt docks/hubs frying motherboards on the M1 but that is generally accepted as an Apple issue (which they as usual won't acknowledge). Don't buy a cheap or unbranded hub - you will need one as they only come with usb-c ports.

                                                                                        DeeBrown is spot on about the discounts and sticking to a new one vs refurb, well worth waiting for Black Friday.

However she put a in great performance along with Sharon Horgan in This Way Up. A better actress than comedian for me. Also can't believe that Sharon Horgan is 51.
