    Need some BBV help please!


    If you have booked anything recently, an appointment, tee time, restaurant or whatever online would you be able to tell me the name of the business so I can view their booking process/system?

    The reason I ask is I am looking to get a list of as many booking systems as possible, as I need to approach them about integrations for my app.

    As an extra ask, if you can think of any business you've ever used that uses Acuity or Squarespace as their booking system, thats a added bonus as my app works super well with those and is already integrated.

    In order for Acuity or SP to promote me as an official partner integration I need to get at least 10 acuity users on board, I have 5. I need as many more as possible.

    If any BBV readers can think of any businesses that you've booked online, or ay businesses that use acuity or squarespace I would MASSIVELY appreciate it.

    Here is an example of the squarespace/acuity UI to see if it jogs a memory.

    This may or may not be an original thought of my own.
    All efforts were made to make this thought original but with the abundance of thoughts in the world the originality of this thought cannot be guaranteed.

            This house could easily be made nice, a lot better than some of the hopeless ones. That decoration is just poor taste imo but there is a lot to work with.

                Re property flipping

                Random story but a childhood friend of my mothers ran away as a teenager from home after a parent died and her sibling committed suicide. My mother tracked her down a couple of years ago by recognizing her son somehow, after not seeing her for 50 years. She had apparently run to London, and eventually ended up working flipping real estate there and becoming a millionaire from it, and then marrying somebody with Saudi level wealth, that works for the Royals. When my mother contacted her she had no idea but she said she would visit London to see her, was fairly shocked to turn up at a mansion in the middle of London with more cars than you can count and rather lavish gifts haha.

                    Off their head, far too specific a taste for a sale.

                      Absolutely. I feel in other countries kids in the same family grow up a bit more uniformly, whereas in Ireland our families tend to be a lot more variable and therefore with much more opportunity to be bellends.

                          Ha! You'd hate my living room so. Very similar to that. All black bar the ceiling, although we've decided to do that soon.

                          I hated the idea at first when my wife suggested it but I loved it the instant we did it.

                          Paintings and bits with bright colours just pop off it.

                            There's a small little Indian takeaway local to me that has the best online ordering experience I've ever had.

                                My only real worry with the more extreme ones, is that they may also have had creative solutions to the electrical and plumbing situation. Pure bias based on nothing though.

                                      Lad still hasn't contacted me about my knife. I've been in touch a couple of times to gently enquire.

                                      Ordered it at the end of Nov.


                                      How long do you think I should leave it before telling him to stick it up his bollix?

                                      Or is 4 months (so far) acceptable for something hand crafted?

                                        Sounds like he took on too many orders at once, it's not his main job:

                                        Unfortunately the waiting list has grown to a point where we can no longer estimate how long it will take for someone to receive their knife. The list will be reopened as soon as we have cleared the backlog.

He's got a kiwi bird, solid job and life all sorted. 6 months in a house together and now a de facto common law spouse so he qualifies for residency on a partnership/marriage visa. So he let his passport expire last year while in middle of the residency application and applied online for the renewal. It arrived in my gaff 3 days later and I DHL'd it to him. Luckily it arrived another 3 days later and in time for him to meet the deadline for his case. Obviously he got approved but he is one lucky git.
                                                There used to be a drop box in Leinster House for anyone pally with TDs/staff for getting same day passports.

                                                  I currently can't invest as my passport ran out, can't get a new passport as they are not processing passports and don't want to buy right now as per all the chat today and possible wanting to move to London in a few years anyway. Hopefully by the time I get my passport the market will have crashed and I can lump vwce.

Like why not text me five weeks after a haircut saying 'psst want us to book you in for a cut'. Could also remember some client info and use that to ensure decent service no matter which hairdresser is cutting the hair.

Not to my taste at all, we were offered a viewing on this previously but declined for a few reasons, mainly location - but to my mind that interior is a bit off-putting to most buyers I imagine!

Especially when it was only built 4 years ago. The question of Churchtown or Nutgrove as expressed by RD3 is a bit odd to me. Nutgrove is a street(that I live on) which is either Rathfarnham or Churchtown. The site those houses and apartments are on, were where HB and Premier Dairies were, and both were Rathfarnham addresses.

Maybe we were in college at the same time. They seem to have done well for themselves, 2000 hairdressing salons from the comfort of their own home. Maybe each salon paying €30-40 a month? for a handy million euros a year in revenue, probably mostly profit, as they surely can't have many running costs.

Not to my taste at all, we were offered a viewing on this previously but declined for a few reasons, mainly location - but to my mind that interior is a bit off-putting to most buyers I imagine!
                                                                                              Started off with some potential but quickly descends into tacky mix of ideas. Sort of a magpie approach of hoarding shiny knick-knacks.

                                                                                              Although it’s mostly the decor tbf. I’m fully aware styling has an impact on perception - it affects how a place looks considerably. But it's really irrelevant as none of that is gonna be included in the sale. Once you remove the furniture. It's pretty basic tbh. The only issues then are the light fittings and the paint.

Though a lot has changed since then, and I'd hope that that kind of snobbery is a shadow of it's former self. Often wonder if the history of the travellers being moved on from the site of Nutgrove Shopping Centre was ever recorded, can't really trust my memory of it.

                                                                                                      It is a suburban area at the foot of the Dublin mountains between Churchtown and Rathfarnham around the Nutgrove Shopping Centre.

                                                                                                      It used to be the home of HB, an ice cream company in Ireland.

I'm sure it happens everywhere, it's relatively harmless and quite funny to watch.

I'm sure it happens everywhere, it's relatively harmless and quite funny to watch.
                                                                                                              We know somebody who will very forecfully insist she lives in one place, when she's nowhere near it. Maybe an Irish version of Hyacinth Bucket?

                                                                                                                  Back to something else mentioned, I think that Foxrock definitely has the most liberties taken with its borders. Houses well into Deansgrange are given Foxrock addresses. Likewise those in Cornelscourt and Cabinteely. I believe there's similar liberties taken with Knocklyon?
