        I think so too...every film is class. There are other directors I love too, but they all have some notable misses. I haven't seen Punch Drunk Love yet, but I heard Kermode rave about it so I'm looking forward to it.
        It's a marvellous film maybe his best right up there with there will be blood.

Yesterday was even worse, was begging family for Difene (never had it before but know the reputation), got some well expired pills and spent day in bed. Today's the first one where I'm at least no worse than the previous! Still crippled but perhaps not quite as bad as yesterday. Also got my hands on 'fresh' Difene! Have no choice though but bed again as still can't sit or walk. Having no luck this year with my health. Any good tips for incapacitating lower back pain?
          Have had issues on and off last few years lower back as well. Basically bottom 3 vertebrae get inflamed and pain shoots into my glutes ass. The only remedy for me is a session or two of physio exercises and some anti inflammatorys. The worst I had it was after a night in the fitz. Strained myself in work on the Monday had a session booked for Friday. Thirs night shower couldn’t bend get my feet horsed a foot into the sink heard a pop cripping pain. Had ticket for fitz EOM got in was uncomfortable was delighted to get knocked out in agony sweat pouring out of me. Friday therapist could not get the Spasms out had to help me with the tracksuit back on. Hobbled up to the doctor walk in one gave me Valium pain killers and antinflammatorys. Was off work for 5 weeks. If I was you I’d still go to the physio find the cause treat it then do preventable treatment to yourself until you have experienced it impossible to describe how debilitating it is.

                Yeah you accused me of this the first time I brought it up. That I had got it from Fox/Trump and therefore it was nonsense.

                Kinda amazing too, you're still going with the "good people" thing considering you can go watch the video of what he said.

Hopefully pays off in the long run, back was getting very achy towards the end so taking a break back in bed now, but will be sure to shuffle around the place a bit in another hour or two. My chair at my desk doesn't help, I know that, too easy to slouch in it.

                    Hitch, if I wasn't writing on a tablet I'd try to impart all of my experience with bidding on houses, in case it would be of use. While looking in 2014/2015, we probably bid on around a dozen houses, going sale agreed ('winning' I guess) on three, two of which we subsequently withdrew from for different reasons. This time around we only bid on four, three of these simultaneously, so withdrew from bidding on two once we went sale agreed (we were the underbidders on those ones anyhow). In short I agree with what Ollie said, that in Dublin there's no need for much gameplay or 'tricks', figure out in advance the max you are willing to go before you start bidding, stick to it. Some people advise making huge bid increases to blow the other bidders out of the water, but personally think this is a good way of potentially costing yourself money. For example in one bidding war we were in, bids were increasing in 2.5k increments, then one side bid an extra 15k. All that did was speed things up slightly, as another bidder simply responded with the usual 2.5k on top. For our own sale, 11 different bidders were involved, and the winning bid was the usual 2.5k higher; if they had tried a bigger bid in that spot it would have been a waste (but I would have been happy!)

                    As you've already noted, don't underestimate the other costs - pay for a good survey when you are sale agreed, don't scrimp there or on the solicitor. Stamp duty and moving/storage costs also add up!

                    Hammer home the 'not in a chain, mortgage approved, genuine first time buyer' pitch with the EAs when bidding, it's a great position to be in.
                    What approach do people take for valuing houses just out of curiosity? Is it just a case of setting a budget and finding something within it? I'd find it very difficult to try and compare places in terms of price. I find even trying to pick between somewhere to rent difficult.

                        Could be useful to think along the lines of doing "future you" a favour. Like if you were sitting in 5 years time for a glass of wine reading what would the room look like? Where would you be working and how would you get there from your home?

                        My missus blackballed instantly living in the country, which is reasonable for someone used to city life.
                        I have always lived somewhere with medium-large gardens and plenty of space so the balance between those 2 sets of requirements and what I can afford helped a lot to focus what were very nebulous thoughts.

                                There's some lovely data here that I use in classes: https://www.kaggle.com/shivachandel/kc-house-data/code

                                Can then turn it into something like this with pretty amazing prediction value: https://www.kaggle.com/shweta2407/re...ta-accuracy-87

                                I was looking at something like that for Ireland, or Dublin, but all we have really are house prices, so you can only predict from prior houses. There isn't enough data to build a proper model. I think DAFT are playing around with something like it, but its not very good.

                                            I use a spreadsheet to compare houses I'm interested in, most important/easiest to determine metric is obviously €/square foot. But you also need to record location (distance to public transport / shops), aspect, garden size, quality of finish, etc... and have that in mind when comparing houses, as the simple €/square foot doesn't tell all. But often will certainly point out houses that are terrible value!

                                              I compare that to investing using a PB valuation when the whole world uses PE, you’re not getting that multiple expansion if your basis is wrong! If the market uses “feel” and you’re modelling based on what’s rationale im not sure it’ll help much with bidding.

                                                  Everyone is going to have their own opinion on what is important and what represents value; for example, my wife and I couldn't care less about having a big garden so long as a nice park is nearby (grew up in a house with a big garden, still did all our playing on the communal 'green' in the estate), which is very handy as the premium people pay in Dublin for big gardens is sizable.

                                                  Not gonna link directly, but just to illustrate what I would think is good value based on asking price right now in the area I'm most interested in, check out 3 Kerrymount Rise, 'Foxrock' (more Cabinteely IMHO). I'm sure lots would hate it for the lack of big back garden! If we weren't sale agreed I'd be in for that for sure. As for poor value, 4 Glencairn Pk, price per square foot is mad (it's about 120 sq meters of living space).

                                                            Might be possible too you build on the tool that the Dublin guy put on medium a few weeks ago.
                                                            ah yeah. Do you have a link to that?

Thankfully have Raheny and St Annes Park to act as natural defences against incursions from such areas.

If the market uses “feel” and you’re modelling based on what’s rationale im not sure it’ll help much with bidding.

Being Clontarf of course, they were probably drinking handmade artisan IPA and arguing about what gender they are)

There isn't enough data to build a proper model. I think DAFT are playing around with something like it, but its not very good.

Got the exemption from wasting her time learning Irish for the eldest kid when we arrived, and I just sent an email seeking an exemption for the youngest and they got back saying - actually there's a new law saying that no more exemptions are allowed for any kids under 12 unless they have severe learning disability.

Will the eldest kid - free to use her time productively, maybe learn Chinese, grow up to do more useful things than her younger brother who knows how to ask to go the toilet as gaeilge very well.

Shes now broken out of tikTok and released a song and its kinda cool in a poppy way.

When I lived on the northside, I knew 95%+ of all the neighbours for all my life and you would always have the chats and the sense of community was fantastic. One of the most striking things was when the mother died (almost 22 years ago now) and we brought her back to the house for a wake ahead of the funeral. There was huge numbers of family and neighbours in and out of the house but a group of about a dozen neighbours arranged to come in and essentially do the night shift of saying decades of the rosary from 2am until about 7am on the basis that they didn't want Mam to be alone overnight but also wanted the family to try be able to get a decent nights kip and not to have to stay up with her.

                                                                                                          Where I am now is not quite apartments, it's a gated place with apartments on the ground floor and duplexs on top of them but everybody has their own front door and either a small terrace for the apartment or balcony for the duplexs, all leading out to a communal garden area. There are only a few owner/occupiers with the balance all renting out of about 50 places and the turn over in renters is fairly high. The amount of people that walk past you and don't even say hello is off the charts - I just find it so weird.

                                                                                                                It really is about the people . I remember holding the door open for this middle aged couple many moons ago in a v posh golf club. The woman looked right down her nose and neither bothered to say thank you. My inner Dub came out and in a very put on as flat as I could accent I said. DON'T FOOKIN MENTION IT. Her majesty jumped in disgust and the husband gave a cheeky knowing grin then said . Fair point

                                                                                                                This story changes in my head over the years . I was quite sure I kicked her up the hole but doesnt sound like me now does it . Pity .

How the hell does he hear the comment from BK. I think the shoes annoyed him but would love to know . I like them both . Like I say golf is an arseholes game. The precious rules and behavioural spotlights are way OTT. I love the actual game but the environment annoys the shit out of me.

Oh it's not him doing the shit talking so he doesn't like it and rolls his eyes like a child.
