    Was 'The Witness' Book / Podcast discussed in here?

    Listened to the Podcast. Enjoyed it. Don't think i'll need to do the book but it would probably explain some stuff. Looking at the success of Kin(Haven't seen it) and Love/Hate you'd think RTE or someone else should commission an 8 part show. A true story that easily plays out. Grim as fcuk. Would be a hit.
    It's hard to articulate in a post how i felt about it.

    SPOILER
    Felt Joey never stood much of a chance in life considering what he seen in his upbringing/His Dad and the rest. If it wasn't Kenny i'm confident a life of crime awaited regardless.

    Obviously Kenny is as bad a human being as there is. Deplorable. Should be buried under the prison.
    Thought Joey was spoofing a lot of the way. Blamed him on every bit of crime he ever committed. Tripped himself up a lot.
    Marlo Hyland "I heard a lot about you" made him more than just a runner/Junior for Kenny.
    Confused why the killing or O'Reilly hit home a lot more than the "Chopping up of Junkies" (O'Reilly himself was a scumbag). Crying at the grave was a strange look.

      If people who are coughing / have symptoms of a cold wore them it would be sufficient. Think that's standard enough in Japan for years now.

      Reminds me of people attending the office sneezing away for 7 hours in a room with others as they 'werent ill enough to take a sick day'. Cheers, you've timed it that I get symptoms on a Friday and that's my weekend fecked.

        Tightly linked to work sick pay. For example in one job I lost first days pay when I went sick. Not staying at home with a sniffle and losing a full days pay.

        Work from home is a happy compromise there now

Not least as the mask wearing seems to have not stopped that woeful cold going around, so is clearly worse than useless.

            Went to Lullymore haloween themed on Sunday. Highlight was the cho choo train attacked by Zombies and a clown with a chain saw. Kids shit themselves . I took an unnatural joy from watching them dive for cover. My own horror story came when I returned and saw what tactics Ole had worked out to play Liverpool. .

              You always had the choice to wear a mask and you always will. I see no reason for them to still be legally required though. We've had a ridiculously high vaccine uptake. Just open up and get on with life at this stage.

                I've been sick for 8 weeks now and thereunder the new world order I have only gone in one day that I needed to and was there on my own. WFH a couple of days that I was feeling awful I just stayed in bed an extra hour or two and worked away as normal at my own pace for the rest of the day.

                  Yeah. We're a bit undecided on this, but think the current kitchen is too bad (see image below), so we'll just take everything out, get new equipment as its all very old at the moment - ancient really - that's the main cost, and then IKEA the furniture, so its no bother or lost money if we eventually expand the space, as IKEA is all modular anyway. Thats the thinking in any case, whether or not its well thought through.

                  The kitchen space is the big problem. Its 2.44m long and 2.1m wide. So - the thinking is 4 x 60cm standard square blocks on the outer wall side - cooker, sink, dishwasher, storage. Some wall stuff there also along with the extractor. Then on the other wall we have 40cm wide storage stuff bottom and top, for three 60cm length blocks, and a mini counter in between the top and bottom. Has to be less wide to leave space to walk about the kitchen, and shorter length to allow using the interior and exterior door (both open outwards).

                  Washing machine and dryer in a small outhouse. Fridge just outside the kitchen in a space under the stairs. I'm not really sure about the practicality of the fridge thing, someone said it was a good idea. To remove the kitchen door. Free up and open up the current storage space under the stairs and pop the fridge in there. Use a painting or floor tiling scheme to give the appearance that the kitchen and the under-stairs fridge are all part of the same scheme.

                  I'm really just pointing out the details in case there's something obviously wrong with the plan and you can stop me in my tracks!!

                  SPOILER
                  I've seen the floor plan. Having two opposite linear kitchens like that is a galley kitchen. Can be very space efficient, but also very pokey. (like a galley on a ship or a plane). access both sides is better than the dead end style. But the issue is the doors are not centering a odd chicane at both ends. Biggest issue is that the kitchen doesn't connect to the dining area. There two ways to solve that. Open to the dining, or extend to the back.

                  Despite Raoul's concerns, a kitchen open to the liviing area is standard and not an issue. But a kitchen open to the hallway is not. Don't remove the door.
                  A fridge outside the kitchen a disaster. Unless its a beer or wine fridge. Trying to bring the under stair store into the kitchen is good in theory, but will end up with an odd stair bullhead poking in.
                  Only was to make it work imo is to come in the other side, but then you lose a 600x600 block of the kitchen - so no benefit.
                  You could replace like for like with Ikea, and reuse them in the future kitchen. But no real benefit over doing it all in one in future. If replacing now, go for space efficient appliances - the future kitchen won't be massive.

                  It's very irish to have the laundry in the kitchen, and generally takes away more than it adds. Having it out the back would be much better.
                  As I know you not a massive DIY enthusiast shed could easily be split in to shed/storage and an additional room. For the bants call it a man cave, and tell the wife the other one with the washer is her lady cave. But kids room, home office, or den of debauchery all options. Might be better to use that as the first attempt at DIY. As if you fuck it up, no real harm.

                      Dropped the eldest, least sick, kid up the mountains today near Johnny Foxes for a halloween school holiday camp. They just run around for six hours exploring the mountains etc. Kids these days have some glorious options. Don't even think it was expensive. €120 for the week.

                        In the fifth hour now of trying to get the house keys. We've finally worn down the estate agents from their plinth of never having seen the keys, wouldn't know what a key looks like, to now acknowledging, after solicitor intervention, that they do in fact have the keys, but in an unoccupied office and held by a currently untraceable estate agent. These new fangled virtual estate agents have a few logistical shortcomings.

                            This is probably the end of kids being allowed in hotel swimming pools. Parents sign a waiver saying they'll look after their kid in swimming pool, then get unfortunately distracted, and an insurance company has to hand over €2.5m and will never again insure another swimming pool in the country. Our legal liability system is taking away so many nice things.

                              It's ridiculous. I can't recall seeing lifeguards in any (or many) hotel swimming pools I've been in, so unless most hotels are very lax in their obligations, I'm assuming there is no legal obligation to provide one. That being the case, how could the hotel have been found liable here? Obviously something is amiss, but this is why we can't have nice things in this country.

                                  We built the laundry and some units into our garage when we moved into our house. Still plenty of room for bikes etc in there and freed up a ton of space in the kitchen for food and as rd3 pointed out our clothes won’t smell of whatever food we decided to cook a few days ago.

                                  Not sure if it was a devious master plan by my wife but we also put the beer and wine fridge/storage out there too. This has resulted in me doing a lot of the laundry.

                                    Such has the popularity of non-alcoholic Guinness become that one bartender in Tralee recently told this writer that when they inquired about getting the drink for their pub, they were told they would have to go on a waiting list until potentially February, such is the demand for it.
                                    It's the new veganism. The new cycling. What all the cool kids are now doing. Although I don't really see the point of the 'club' mentioned in the article.

                                      I'm not sure I've ever seen a hotel lifeguard outside of mega hotel resorts. Those places with small 'hotel style' pools never have lifeguards. I thought it was fairly clearly user-beware.

                                        Lifeguard cover for 14 hours a day for a 100 bed hotel would add maybe €3-5 per room costs. That's why it is supplied as 'at user risk'. Very few hotels would have the price flexibility to incorporate that. All that will happen is that pools will now be for 18+, kids won't be allowed. Outside of very touristy large (international) hotels.

                                            An important point missing from HH's link from the Independent is that it's possible that the size of the pool could mean that a life-guard actually was compulsory.
                                            I guess neither side wanted to go down the path of whether it is defined as two separate pools or a big 'pool area' that exceeds the guidelines where an attendant is needed.

                                            €2.5m for boy with brain injury after near-drowning (rte.ie)
                                            Senior Counsel Liam Reidy said it was an issue between the sides as to whether the size of the pool required an attendant.
                                            He said the larger pool did not fall within the guidelines requiring an attendant, but if combined with the children's pool it would.

                                              Only in Ireland would you need a non-alcoholic club. Pretty much describes the relationship with alcohol in a nutshell. My missus constantly moaned (pre-covid) about how much of a pain in the hole it is try to socialize without alcohol. Option A - drinking. Option B - See option A. If you're not a sporty person it limits options further. Not living in Dublin or a moderate urban area doesn't help either. Don't get me wrong I love a pint (or craft beer) as much as the next fella so never would have cared or noticed tbh. Would be interested to hear some non-drinkers take on it.

                                                It's nice to have the option now but not everyone can work from home. It's positions that can't wfh where it gets interesting, a lot of companies would seem to prefer you show up rather than actually think bigger picture.

                                                      Probably good that the insurance company takes some responsibility for the cost of care of the lad which will fall on the state after the money runs out.

Is there a way to borrow or rent one, as don't really want to fork out 100 euros for a tool I would only need to use once?

It's probably a bit heavy on the Joyce stuff for most, though well worth a visit. Best part was the café which has outdoor seating in a nice garden at the back. It also leads out to the Iveagh Gardens. Only mentioning it, as I'd never heard of it before.

We've finally worn down the estate agents from their plinth of never having seen the keys, wouldn't know what a key looks like, to now acknowledging, after solicitor intervention, that they do in fact have the keys, but in an unoccupied office and held by a currently untraceable estate agent. These new fangled virtual estate agents have a few logistical shortcomings.
