      He's been murdering his own citizens for the last few months in between increasingly racist rhetoric. Compared to all of that pardoning his criminal friends is nothing.

            Has he been disguised with the peaceful protestors looting rioting and destroying statues blm my hole.

              It's almost impressive how you both managed to construct a sentence so badly, and have the content so entirely out of touch with reality.

                That one of the umai bags ?

                Got myself a pellet grill today, 600KM round trip, up past Drogheda to collect it, but serious bargain second hand.
                This too shall pass.

                  Impressive commitment! Not exactly Umai bag but same principle. Got them from Holland.

                    Don't have access to cousins forum anymore for some reason. I'm trying to track down a stupid show from 2014 called The Quest. Tried everything - usenet, pirate, nothing active. No way to pay for it. Is there any place I might be missing that's particularly good with oldish TV shows?

                      At about 40% in the WSOP investment of a lifetime thread. Dice is lining up a card savant who will we call for now Player X to bring the loots home. Get involved here.

                        Playing these silk road Mirco qualifiers on GG ranging from $1-10 tourneys for tickets into bigger WSOP events. The only ticket I have shipped so far is to the opening $400 PLO event from a $3 one. I can count on one hand the number of times I have played PLO. Pretty sure that tourney was my first ever PLO tourney. That should be a fun tourney!

                              Suppose it's time to call a halt to this all and head on home.


                              Plans are underway to get home permanently, herself is having our first, am done with the Brits. Anyone selling any houses in Kimmage?

                                There's a new twist to add to a fear of heights in hotels and apartments. Now a fear of people falling on you from a height. I know it's kinda a holiday habit for Brits to fall out of hotels, but the poor lad at the bottom sitting down having a beer and pondering what he wants to do tomorrow.

                                ​​​​​​.

                                The man who fell was 50-years-old and visiting the Costa del Sol from England, according to reports.

                                    Taking 3 kids down to Cork and have imposed an electronics ban for the holiday in the aspirational hope that we will do lots of family stuff. I'd say this will go well.

                                              Maybe Mick meant 'blow my hole' writing his poem.

                                              Has he been disguised?

                                              With the peaceful protestors looting.

                                              Rioting and destroying.

                                              Statues blow my hole.

                                                So it turns out that Trump did make one genuinely impressive political achievement.



                                                Hopefully that stat points towards his hijacking of the republican party not being able to recover from him. A Trump dynasty in Washington for decades is too awful to contemplate.

                                                  Where did you get it and exactly how are you ageing it? Looks like a cube roll?

                                                    I got it in Higgins' in Sutton. I'm aging it in a type of bags that are basically one way valves for moisture. Guga Foods on YouTube uses them a lot with great results. It's a ribeye without the cap which I think is the same as a cube roll? I'm still a bit green when it comes to the names for everything.

                                                        Edit: okay get it now. I guess a Nixon / Bush was a VP during 1980s, 1930s/40s.

                                                          2020 sees the completion of the most recent life five year plan with reasonable, but not complete, success, of some decently stretching plans set in April 2015. Trying now to come up with the next set of five year plans and it's difficult as it seems very likely to influence my full life in a way that plans set before the age of 40 didn't. As in I'll be turning 48 in 2025 when the next plan runs its course and I'd find it hard to change track at that point. They should give training in this type of thing.

I was walking across Bull Island today with the tide out and spied people under the bridge clam hunting, possibly Chinese (I didn't investigate).

Travelling on something with wheels that small is misery. I generally only operate in suburbia and they are present without being everywhere.

                                                                                        As an aside. We have a week booked in Kerry, first week of August. Booked a surfing lesson in Inch, kayaking out to the caves in Dingle bay. Plan to stroll up Torc or Mangerton mountain in Killarney. Could easily entertain 3 teenagers with stuff like that.

                                                                                        Comment

What do you mean they aren't meant to be used when its wet??! Oh ffs. I'm still awaiting a credit decision from amazon, so maybe they'll turn it down, and I won't need to carry out the purchase.

                                                                                          That's not a ringing endorsement zuut. Shite. It was to do the 10 mins between Cabra Luas and DCU. Otherwise its a 50 minute walk which is obv not realistic. Hopefully it'll be grand for that.

Trying now to come up with the next set of five year plans and it's difficult as it seems very likely to influence my full life in a way that plans set before the age of 40 didn't. As in I'll be turning 48 in 2025 when the next plan runs its course and I'd find it hard to change track at that point. They should give training in this type of thing.

They loved it now I had a fishing rod but just used some line. They had never done anything like it before but if nature all crabs returned didn’t eat then raw i am not bear grills nice crabs with a side order of piss.

                                                                                                    My cousin and I made a fishing rod using a really old style reel, curtain hooks and a reasonably straight length of pole.
                                                                                                    Warm summer that year(weren't they all then) great days working on the farm pitching bales of hay on to the trailer, corned beef sandwiches and a cup of tea for lunch.

                                                                                                    We fished for hours on the deel taking turns finally snagging a trout, almost in darkness. Great times.

A couple of hands earlier I call an open from UTG in the BB with K7. Fop is K,10,3. I check-call a bet. Check, check to turn, and it a K on the river. I check and he shoves 2x the pot. I snap and he has Q9. Huge pot. A few hands later I am on the button with AA and the same guy is in the BB. I open and he flats. Flop is 8,10, Q. Check, Check. Turn is a 2 and he bets tiny. I call. The river is 4. He rips 4x pot. I am not sure how I fold here? I probably have a top 30 chip stack if I fold. The pot is near enough for the chip lead. He obviously flips over the flopped straight.

                                                                                                          My cousin and I made a fishing rod using a really old style reel, curtain hooks and a reasonably straight length of pole.
                                                                                                          Warm summer that year(weren't they all then) great days working on the farm pitching bales of hay on to the trailer, corned beef sandwiches and a cup of tea for lunch.

                                                                                                          We fished for hours on the deel taking turns finally snagging a trout, almost in darkness. Great times.

A few secondary goals to give the overarching goal a purpose and bit of meaning. Then the setting of annual plans had to fit in with achieving the five year plans. All sounds a bit communist central planning when actually writing it down here!

Not sure if Amazon Ireland has the same deal? Essentially for anything over a hundred and under a thousand you can automatically choose to pay it in 4 installments instead of pay immediately. Anything over a thousand, which I was doing yesterday as need a laptop and a scooter, then you click a few buttons and a few hours later they get back confirming you can pay in e.g. 10 / 20 monthly installments. I realise credit-to-buy is not a new idea, its more how simple and integrated Amazon have made it that's the big thing.

A serious profit margin in that and given it seems to be underpinning a lot of brick and mortar stores for the sale of big ticket items it’s pretty interesting. Who are their finance partners or are they doing the lending themselves?
