    I wouldn't joke about. Remember being at an AA meeting 30 years ago, and one of the chaps stories was of going back on the booze after a long break, having a six month blackout/bender, and waking up playing a gig in Amsterdam.

        You'd want to be drunk to watch that. A few episodes in and it's pure shite.

          I watched the first episode last night - it already seems very far fetched, even for a TV show - Not sure I'll last for the full season which isn't a great sign after one episode.

              It's also kinda offensive to stalkers and murderers

                  It's funny the way one still reads Colin Powell as Coal-in. His funeral is on now.

                    Rose Plays Julie is at the very top end of hope produced stuff. Pity it falls apart at the end. The lead up is well worth it though.

                                Quite a profitable strategy has emerged for fundalk punting needs a bit of patience.

                                All you need is a bit of efficient and accurate use of live pause when there is a close finish approaching - Don't wait and rewind or you'll miss the value Stop it as close to the line as you can, if you don't form an opinion immediately, use a bit of card on the screen to draw the line.
                                Ignore the price in market. Sometimes even when its a clear result the market will be 50:50 until RTV show their freeze frame some 30 seconds later.

                                Last winner there tonight traded at more than double its SP of 6/1 and was available for ages for lots of money @ 3 and 4/1 after it had won the race. It's the third time I've seen the market get it way wrong in as many meetings.
                                Something very satisfying about punting a winner that has already gone by.

                                  Is it a coin toss if you will have to pay excise duty and vat ?

                                    Good selection for Christmas.

                                    I mainly drink Bordeaux red and NZ/Loire white. Not the worst rut to be in but probably should expand my selections more. Italian, Spanish and Portuguese are the areas I'm trying to delve more into.

                                      I'd drink a fair bit of Eye-talian. Very little NZ\AU.

                                      German, Czech and Slovenian wine is worth investigation.

                                        If that 2 bed was in Ballsbridge or Dalkey the price would be totally fine, is the location that's the issue there. I've seen it suggested that with that price, the developer actually doesn't want to sell to the public, but wants to offload to the eejits in DLR county council. I've a 3 bed that's very slightly bigger, also in an estate outside the M50 and am selling for a touch off 1/2 million, that's the market right now!

                                                    Seems like just a terrible question to ask but anyhow: is storing wine standing rather than on it's side a terrible thing?

                                                        Corks are essentially wooden sponges. If a bottle is stored upright long term, the cork can dry out and let small amounts of air into the bottle. Storing a bottle on its side stops that happening as the cork stays wet.

                                                              Have been chasing down the energy guy who did the survey of our house 2 months ago. Had a chat yesterday. The gist of it being that he hadn't bothered to send us the survey results as 'you've no chance of getting a builder'. He said all his usual builders aren't even answering the phone and also that a lot of the lower-skilled building workforce haven't returned to work yet (either returned to their native lands or else sitting on the PUP to the bitter end).

                                                              Pretty discouraging from both our own POV but also in the wider context. Just gotta sit and wait it out I guess and let Lao Lao sort out the global supply chains and SF will resolve the building industry here.

Its a pity there aren't another couple of runners in the novice hurdle, I don't think its as deep as it appears on the surface and would guess that Joseph's Vultan might turn out to be overpriced in it, want to be taking on the of of the market maybe a speculative RFC with Autumn evening . Same problem with Belfast Banter in Wincanton, he travels well, is fit to run and could be competitive at this level today, would like the 10/1 if there were 3 places.

The gist of it being that he hadn't bothered to send us the survey results as 'you've no chance of getting a builder'. He said all his usual builders aren't even answering the phone and also that a lot of the lower-skilled building workforce haven't returned to work yet (either returned to their native lands or else sitting on the PUP to the bitter end).

                                                                          No website which is weird. His own house that he built featured on Home of the year.

I've seen it suggested that with that price, the developer actually doesn't want to sell to the public, but wants to offload to the eejits in DLR county council. I've a 3 bed that's very slightly bigger, also in an estate outside the M50 and am selling for a touch off 1/2 million, that's the market right now!
                                                                                            Mate of mine here in Ashbourne sold his run of the mill bog standard 3 bed house in an estate for 510k. Bought a detached house in a more settled area of Ashbourne, 5 bedrooms, a massive back garden, large driveway, huge patio area out the back too. And unlimited potential for whatever he wants to do for 600k.

                                                                                            In Ashbourne! Mental prices but cant help thinking hes done well in the whole thing.

Bought a detached house in a more settled area of Ashbourne, 5 bedrooms, a massive back garden, large driveway, huge patio area out the back too. And unlimited potential for whatever he wants to do for 600k.

                                                                                                            In Ashbourne! Mental prices but cant help thinking hes done well in the whole thing.

Wouldn't be my idea of a good trade, assuming first house was in a decent area in Dublin, but of course I am just not a country person at heart, at this stage in my life I'd really struggle to move back to Galway city even, too small. All this being said, it's not like I make it out into Dublin city centre very often these days, I bet I spend 90+% of my time within the boundaries of Dublin 18!

I'm not going until the 26th, and worried it will be cancelled again the way the covid numbers are going.
